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.

Change.org Petition - Jon Stewart Should Host a Presidential Debate

The above petition just landed in my inbox a few minutes ago ... and I think it is perhaps one of the most brilliant ideas I've heard in a while.  Entirely too many debates, both primary and presidential, have been little more than photo ops for the…Continue

"Are you an open book"

Thanks to the ghoulish humor of Michael Richter & Ben Gerber

Joan, I hope you see the similarities.

In the decades between the Civil War and FDR's New Deal, corporations treated employees here in the US of A as badly as they are now treating employees in other countries. And the government was on the corporations' side.

My mom's father was self-employed and did okay. I don't like to think of how they treated my dad's father; he and his family were among the urban poor in northern Kentucky.

Apple Avoiding Billions And Billions Of Dollars In Taxes

"Cook’s proposal is likely to be for a “tax repatriation holiday” and a “territorial tax system,” both of which mean giant, multinational companies like Apple will pay less in taxes, people like Cook will have even more money, and We the People will end up with higher taxes, fewer good schools and good roads and police and teachers and the other things government does to make our lives better. As a bonus, this makes giant multinationals that move jobs and profits overseas even more competitive against smaller American companies that keep jobs and profits here and do not have foreign “subsidiaries” located in tax havens."

Tony, this was bound to happen. Religious people are well known for being creative when it comes to collection plates. A great article.

Everything is rigged --- doesn't surprise me at all. But I'm glad when the truth emerges, Joan!

Is that an ATM in the church lobby? Credit and debit card swipe machines in churches may startle some of the pious, but such kiosks, already present in some houses of worship.
 
Found this quite interesting. Don't I remember some story about some dude running the merchants and money lenders out of the temple? Maybe it was only in my dreams.

Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever

"Conspiracy theorists of the world, believers in the hidden hands of the Rothschilds and the Masons and the Illuminati, we skeptics owe you an apology. You were right. The players may be a little different, but your basic premise is correct: The world is a rigged game. We found this out in recent months, when a series of related corruption stories spilled out of the financial sector, suggesting the world's largest banks may be fixing the prices of, well, just about everything."

"If true, that would leave us living in an era of undisguised, real-world conspiracy, in which the prices of currencies, commodities like gold and silver, even interest rates and the value of money itself, can be and may already have been dictated from above. And those who are doing it can get away with it. Forget the Illuminati – this is the real thing, and it's no secret. You can stare right at it, anytime you want."

"Yes, I do have proof God does not exist. It is perfect and Irrefutable. I'm not going to show it to you however. You cannot detect it in any way. You cannot deduct it from the laws of logic either. You might claim that I do in fact have no such proof, but you have no proof that I don't. Sound familiar."

"The more we do to you, the less you seem to believe we are doing it."

~ Dr. Joseph Mengele

(1911- 979) Nazi German SS officer and a physician in the Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, known for performing grisly human experiments on camp inmates, including children, for which Mengele was called the "Angel of Death"
