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.

Bill Maher on Donald Trump

Bill Maher has spared nothing on his Real Time program in repeatedly eviscerating Drumpf in every last available way.  Those assessments are usually focused on one particular aspect of Drumpf's behavior or personality, but to borrow from…Continue

Ruth, that cartoon on running a family like a corporation illustrates the problems perfectly!

Back to the election...

Isn't that supposed vision of Roberts's about the worst possible blasphemy that it's possible to commit?  About the only possible translation I can come up with that isn't horrific blasphemy is that Trump is actually Jesus coming back.

And congratulations, Pat.  You had a messed up dream.  I have plenty of bizarre dreams, and mine are far more interesting.

For anyone who hasn't blown their Sunday brunch yet:

Robertson Said He Had Vision of Trump Seated ‘At the Right Hand of the Lord’

“God came to me in a dream last night and showed me the future,” said Robertson. “He took me to heaven and I saw Donald Trump seated at the right hand of our Lord.”

According to Raw Story, Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, a 12,000-member megachurch, said Trump would make a better candidate than Jesus.

Probably the only time something true came out of Jeffress's mouth.

If anything, saying we favor tRump might inspire Clinton to move the wrong way, towards the right!

Anyway, here's something I picked up:

Make Earth Flat Again! Donald Trump 2016 - PoliticalGarbageChute.comAnd here's a message for anyone considering voting for him:

Trump is not one of you. He is one of him. Everything you have heard him say that you liked, if you look hard enough you will see that he one day said the exact opposite.(click to enlarge;

 with apologies to chameleons everywhere!)

      ...polls that show Hillary only ahead by 2 points.

To move Hillary leftward, progressive Dems say we favor Trump. That's why Bernie held out as long as he did. Left-leaning talking heads on TV don't know that tactic and went nuts.

Re the wolf in sheep's "clothing".

Imagine a life-size wolf in a priest's clothing.

Several years ago a sculptor made one and the annual Napa County Expo exhibited it. The several viewers I saw all enjoyed it. In the left-leaning SF Bay Area no one protested publicly.

@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.
