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.

Michael Moore: Trump Is Self-Sabotaging His Campaign Because He Never Really Wanted the Job in the First Place - He's running for president to get a better deal for "The Apprentice." (Alternet)

But then, he may be too big a narcissist to voluntarily step down and (in his eyes) declare himself a "LOSER!"

The Orange One is right: the upcoming election is rigged... but actually in the Republicans' favor! These two cartoons explain:

On the left: a diverse crowd of people in line for the VOTER I.D. desk. Signs overhead: 'YOU MUST SHOW PROOF OF LAWFUL PRESENCE', 'YOU MUST SHOW PROOF OF IDENTITY', 'YOU MUST SHOW PROOF OF RESIDENCY'. On the right: a completely clear, red-carpeted line with a sign overhead: 'EXPRESS LANE - YOU MUST SHOW PROOF YOU ALWAYS VOTE REPUBLICAN'.

Couple in a car, passing a political billboard. He: “Look at that! Another billboard touting an incumbent who will coast to an easy re-election. I say, THROW THE BUM OUT!” Next frame: the billboard is revealed to say “RE-ELECT Gerry MANDERING” She: “Without true redistricting reform, that's easier said than done...”

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

Back to the election...

Doctor to Uncle Sam in his exam room: “I’m not sure that being ‘sick’ of this election qualifies you for medical marijuana.”

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;

      ...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.
