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.

Ex-US ambassador to Canada: Trump's treatment of the nation is "definition of insanity" http://hill.cm/fAgeqYO

It's so easy to make fun of the US's Liar-in-Chief:

The Perjury Trap (Trump standing under a suspended box, that will trap him if he opens his mouth and releases the rope holding it up)
