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.

Alex Jones, with his rambling reports joined the crowd of conspiracy theorists, yet again: 

Full Show - Special Report: Was Scalia Murdered - 02/15/2016

Comment by Daniel W on February 18, 2016 at 10:13am
I just assumed Dick Cheney was at the same resort and had gone hunting with Scalia... a case of lead poisoning ensued. Why else was there no autopsy?

It's funny Cruz's ad is promoting how trustworthy he is, when he's been called out for campaign dirty tricks.

Two great headlines in Patheos' Progressive Secular Humanist:

Glenn Beck: God Killed Scalia For Ted Cruz

Christian Conservatives Claim Obama Killed Scalia In Pagan Sacrifice

Put them together and Obama must be God.

Joan, I find quite a few good cartoons in the comment threads at Friendly Atheist and Joe.My.God.

Quote of the day (Barry Friedman):

The GOP has turned amnesia into performance art.

Carl, Great cartoons; where do you find them?

SCANDAL: President to nominate Supreme Court Justice / In a controversial move, Obama plans to nominate a REPLACEMENT for Scalia! [Obama pointing to the Constitution] “Um, THIS says I’m supposed to...” / [Beatrice Bamboozler, Center for Nakedly Partisan Priorities:] “A PRESIDENT doing PRESIDENT STUFF in his final year?! TYRANT!” / But wait! Justice Kennedy was confirmed in Reagan's last year of office. [picture of Anthony Kennedy with red “no” circle-slash] Clearly he's ILLEGITIMATE and his rulings must be voided. / ...Including the one that made George W. Bush president, which voids HIS appointees... [pictures of Roberts and Alito with red circle-slashes] ...giving the court a 4-1 LIBERAL MAJORITY! [tiny Clarence Thomas thinking “Uh-oh.”] (Jen Sorensen)(click to enlarge)

According to Republicans, this part of our electoral process needs more regulation... [poll worker with 'VOTE TODAY' and 'PHOTO ID REQUIRED' signs, looking skeptically at a gray-haired, elderly woman using a walker] And this part needs less.
