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.

Change.org Petition - Jon Stewart Should Host a Presidential Debate

The above petition just landed in my inbox a few minutes ago ... and I think it is perhaps one of the most brilliant ideas I've heard in a while.  Entirely too many debates, both primary and presidential, have been little more than photo ops for the…Continue

Music to my ears, Rick Perry's "no longer paying his campaign staff and his funding is drying up". Let's see how many others survive the Repub. race.

Pat - your caveat is accepted. I thought Kasich had shown the slightest trace amounts of humanity, but I won't quibble over trifles. On a sad note </sarcasm> Rick Perry may be getting flushed out of the bowl, er, race early. The WaPost has heartbreakingly</sarcasm>  reported he's no longer paying his campaign staff and his funding is drying up.

Speaking of the devil.... Trumps praises are being sung, as I write, on Anderson Cooper 360. I do not like trump. Surely he will float away. I knew there was a reason I didn't watch CNN too.

Bertold, I will second that emotion with one caveat. Leave off the "almost."

And Ruth, you're correct. TPP will do to the American worker, especially union workers, what NAFTA did to American manufacturing. I can hear the flushing sound already.

If almost any of the R candidates is elected we are horribly screwed.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on August 10, 2015 at 3:10pm

Agreed, Hex5! On another topic,

TPP countries:

The 12 countries involved in the agreement include: Canada, Mexico, Japan, Australia, Peru, Vietnam, the United States, Brunei, Chile, Singapore, New Zealand and Malaysia.

Leaked Trans-Pacific Partnership draft would force Canada to rework...

In my personal opinion if trump gets elected we are all horribly screwed

Mr Pierce offered another new word for me: repechage.

How does one pronounce it? 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lv3ZdeHjX8M

Repechage (/rəpɛʃˈɑːʒ/; French: repêchage, "fishing out, rescuing") is a practice in series competitions that allows participants who failed to meet qualifying standards by a small margin to continue to the next round.

repechage

Comment by Joan Denoo on August 6, 2015 at 4:46pm

Loren, thanks for the citation on "Not a scientist"!

I like the theme; however, I would rather see the film clips with the statements so that I can know each man and a woman said what they appear to be saying. Actually, the voice of the woman was there. The theme is a perfectly valid one and should include the people who fund their campaigns. 

Thanks

Hey Cat - It's a good thing the T is silent, because nothing else about the Donald is. I remember once Caine in Kung Fu said You should not speak if your words are not better than silence. Donald could have learned from that.

The following is from Mr. Pierce's anticipation of tonight's debate, entitled Rick Santorum Is Mad He Didn’t Make the Cut:

“If he had the sense of humor god gave a stone, Santorum would realize that the undercard debate actually is a second chance to launch a campaign – an unprecedented kind of political repechage heat. And, with Donald Trump threatening to turn the Main Event into an extended exercise in human sacrifice, it is possible that the earlier debate could turn out to be the more dignified and substantial of the two. (In fact, that's going to be the easiest way to spin the whole evening, especially if Trump runs wild. I can already hear my man Chuck Todd expressing his surprise at how "substantive" the first debate was. Hell, he thinks this is the most formidable Republican field since 1980.) Fiorina seems to get this. So does Huckleberry J. Butchmeup [AKA Lindsay Graham], who's the one responsible for cleverly renaming the lid-lifter the "Happy Hour Debate." That Santorum is raising a fuss over missing the cut shows a desperate lack of both imagination and wit.”
