Politics, Economics, and Religion

Religion has so many connections to political and economic beliefs, there needs to be a place to identify linkages, problems, goals, options, action plans and evaluation criteria.

What is the purpose of life?

An eternal question, what is the purpose of life?, occupied philosophers’ thoughts throughout history. Stone pictographs reveal even primitive peoples reflected on this query. Each one has the capacity to define his or her personal thinking about politics, economics and religion.

The Satanic Panic - The Witch Hunt of the Late Twentieth Century (Seth Andrews)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller on Wednesday. 1 Reply

To a degree, I think the following video and talk are mislabeled.  Oh, absolutely, Seth talks at length and in detail about the "Satanic Panic," the crazed obsession some Christians had about elements of popular culture through the 1970s, 80s, and…Continue

Joseph, I'm not convinced that Drumpf's rhetoric rises even that high, which is not what I'd call, "encouraging" ... though what about that orangutan IS?

Well, lift weights more often, man.

Joseph - I'm rubber and you're glue . . .

It's sort of sad that the highest level that our president's rhetoric approaches is that of "I know you are, but what am I?" huh Bert?

Mentioning this sets the bar so low it would take a team of trained archaeologists to find it, but 45* finally had one day this week without a false or misleading public statement, according to the Washington Post's "100 days of Trump claims" project. He's still averaging over four lies a day, sometimes seven or more.

Grinning Cat, excellent cartoons! As usual!

Bertold, Donald has a way of lying about other when he is the one committing the offensive lie. He just keeps doing it, even when proven that he is projecting onto others his own crimes.

In case anyone was thinking it can't get more surreal

I rarely watch TV news, and was with a friend when ABC fawned over 45* for his "moderate", "presidential" tone before the joint session of Congress. Not one word about his lies. I was quite annoyed!

Some relevant cartoons:

Donald Trump at his speech before Congress: “I’m terrific at reading the teleprompter... the best there ever was... believe me... Even my hateful, xenophobic, totalitarian rhetoric sounds kinds of presidential!”

Man watching Trump's speech to Congress, intently studying the polygraph (lie detector) his TV is hooked up to

Trump speaking before Congress, with dozens of people on the floor and in the gallery shouting “You lie!” Trump responds, “Who invited fact checkers?!”

The Keppler cartoon describes our times too, Joan.

The corrupt and the anti-corrupt become more skilled at what they do.
