Politics, Economics, and Religion


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.

Public Citizen warns of known dangers hidden in the Trans Pacific Partnership. Even with the extreme secrecy, we know enough, due to partial leaks of the secret text, to be very afraid. For instance, we know the TPP would:Lower U.S. wages by…Continue

Presidential election - last time around Michelle Obama said : "The truth matters." Republicans are laughing all the way to the bank at the quaintness of such a naive thought.

I watched that 'debate'. I don't think they did themselves any favours with all that populist rhetoric being spoken. One would have been forgiven for thinking that Trump was applying to be a border guard rather than the President.

Music to my ears, Rick Perry's "no longer paying his campaign staff and his funding is drying up". Let's see how many others survive the Repub. race. 

Rick Perry

Pat - your caveat is accepted. I thought Kasich had shown the slightest trace amounts of humanity, but I won't quibble over trifles. On a sad note </sarcasm> Rick Perry may be getting flushed out of the bowl, er, race early. The WaPost has heartbreakingly</sarcasm>  reported he's no longer paying his campaign staff and his funding is drying up.

Speaking of the devil.... Trumps praises are being sung, as I write, on Anderson Cooper 360. I do not like trump. Surely he will float away. I knew there was a reason I didn't watch CNN too.

Bertold, I will second that emotion with one caveat. Leave off the "almost."

And Ruth, you're correct. TPP will do to the American worker, especially union workers, what NAFTA did to American manufacturing. I can hear the flushing sound already.

If almost any of the R candidates is elected we are horribly screwed.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on August 10, 2015 at 3:10pm

Agreed, Hex5! On another topic,

TPP countries:

The 12 countries involved in the agreement include: Canada, Mexico, Japan, Australia, Peru, Vietnam, the United States, Brunei, Chile, Singapore, New Zealand and Malaysia.

Leaked Trans-Pacific Partnership draft would force Canada to rework...

In my personal opinion if trump gets elected we are all horribly screwed

Mr Pierce offered another new word for me: repechage.

How does one pronounce it? 


Repechage (/rəpɛʃˈɑːʒ/; French: repêchage, "fishing out, rescuing") is a practice in series competitions that allows participants who failed to meet qualifying standards by a small margin to continue to the next round.

Loren, thanks for the citation on "Not a scientist"!

I like the theme; however, I would rather see the film clips with the statements so that I can know each man and a woman said what they appear to be saying. Actually, the voice of the woman was there. The theme is a perfectly valid one and should include the people who fund their campaigns.
