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.

@Loren: Excellent! It could well be added that (1) many citizens choose to not participate in the "hiring committee"; and (2) in no other context do potential employers even consider someone who presents wildly contradictory claims, outright lies, insults, repeated calls to violence, and insubordinate arrogance!

@Bertold: In reply to that rainbow wolf in sheep's clothing, a picture that reveals what's actually going on:

(Wolf in sheep’s clothing, with a cross on its forehead, in front of a flock of sheep) It’s OK, all we want is “religious freedom”(Feel free to share the image!)

Excellent.  "the 6 inches of shit in your bedroom is what you deserve."  I love it.

A little commentary from one of my favorite atheist entertainers:

I've seen polls that show Hillary only ahead by 2 points, Tom.  That's freaking scary.  I only hope that people will become more repelled by Trump once they see him in debates, assuming he behaves anything like he did in the primary debates.

I don't see a way to do anything like what you're saying with the lawsuits, though.  There are too many valid situations in which, yes, I wanted to do X, but then Y happened, making X unfeasible.

    ...a lawsuit against [politicians] for failing to perform....

I would like to see lawsuits for breach of contract on politicians who promise to do XYZ, and when elected don't do it or worse do the opposite.

On gun rights and the issue's we don't agree with them on. The sobs should be removed from office.
I wonder if we could file a lawsuit against them for failing to perform a job that they are well compensated for? :)

Joseph, I believe you're correct. It's not going to be a landside. If we start thinking it is we could wind up with the racists fool for president.
Everyone who is not for Trump needs to turn out against him. We also need to call the senators and representatives of our states.

"The paradox of environmental economics is that we feel compelled to price nature to make its loss visible on the balance sheet, but in doing so we legitimise its commodification and validate its critical overconsumption in an unbounded market system."    Andrew Simms

It's the economy that needs to be integrated into the environment -...

Simms helps me to understand what's wrong with cap and trade and carbon tax. Sometimes it gets confusing.

That is the way I see it, Grinning Cat!

Bertold, performance art was based on the Catholic Church. Lol. Wait a minute.... did my parents force me into performance art as a baby? Now that I think about it, yes, yes they did.
