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.

Twitter logo bird in tree: 'TWEEEEEEEEET!' Media [watchdogs?] dogs barking up that wrong tree, as one 'Trump's Conflicts of Interest' fat cat says to the other, lounging in and on the neighboring tree, 'Relax, the distraction works every time...'

Satire from the Borowitz Report, newly apropos now that tRump is talking about having Congress "advance" the money for a wall on the Mexican border:

NATION WITH CRUMBLING BRIDGES AND ROADS EXCITED TO BUILD GIANT WALL

...Across the U.S., whose rail system is a rickety antique plagued by deadly accidents, Americans are increasingly recognizing that building a wall with Mexico, and possibly another one with Canada, should be the country’s top priority.

Harland Dorrinson, the executive director of a Washington-based think tank called the Center for Responsible Immigration, believes that most Americans favor the building of border walls over extravagant pet projects like structurally sound freeway overpasses...

Ruth, "BLOTUS - Biggest Liar Of The United States" is so true, much more than "President-Elect Of..."!

One cartoonist's take on last Friday's proceedings in Congress:

DIPLOMA (with Seal of the President of the United States in upper left, and U.S. flag in upper right) - This is to certify that Donald J. Trump has successfully graduated from the ELECTORAL COLLEGE Magna Cum Loud With a B.A. in B.S.(via Twitter)

I just ran across this.

Trump in the Oval Office, refusing a thick “Daily intelligence briefing” while holding up a smartphone displaying “FAKE NEWS”: “Don’t bother. I’m already up to speed.”(click to embiggen)

Apropos: "Putin Led a Complex Cyberattack Scheme to Aid Trump, Report Finds" (yesterday's NYT)

"Mr. Trump told The New York Times in an interview that the storm surrounding Russian hacking was nothing more than a “political witch hunt” carried out by his adversaries, who he said were embarrassed by their loss to him in the 2016 election. Speaking by telephone three hours before the intelligence briefing, Mr. Trump repeatedly criticized the intense focus on Russia."

Err, I'm not seeing where you're going with that.  Calling Trump a nonstop liar and exposing his lies would have been beneficial, if it meant that we didn't get him as a president.

I don't see how your comments apply to anything we're talking about.  Explain please.
