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.

Bertold, I embrace your rant on Dec. 5 and have it pasted on my desktop. You say it, just the way I feel it! 

" I am heartily fed up with alleged Christians" who pretend theirs is a belief based in love. Hate is a better word.

Joan, what have you got against bloated toads to malign them that way???

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 12, 2016 at 6:10pm

Ruth, I like your cartoon, the four perspectives of candidates. I think Trump acts like a bloated toad.

Sanders' support of Israel is a reasonable decision for him, however, if elected president, I wonder if he would listen to the Palestinian side of the argument. Israel's claim to the land is based on ancient belief that god promised them the land. It is my contention that the Israelites constructed the Jewish faith out of self-interest, that many tribes were slaughtered to defend those constructs, and the slaughter continues to this day. I have not heard Sanders' critique of the Israelis.

I think this is Sanders' position:

"Palestinians are entitled to a state of their own," said Sanders, "and the United States should do what it can to make sure that state has a strong economy. Israel is entitled to live in security, not be attacked."

Is it your opinion, Joan,  that this alone would make him unelectable?

Ruth, I just now read: 

Trump, Ted Cruz, and a right-wing insurgency the GOP can no longer control.

An insightful memory of history is repeating itself. Thanks for the lead. Embedded within our current situation resides the remedy:

Split the party and offer a legitimate alternative. 

I don't think Sanders present a reasonable option because of his history of supporting Israel vs. Palestinians. 

We need someone who is strong enough to broker and maintain a peace agreement, work for options that consider all sides, and establish a win/win solution.

Don't even think of Clinton; too many ties to wealth.

The sad fact is that substituting Trump for Calvin is too close a fit, at least on occasion, to be comfortable.  What is even scarier is that there are so many who want their biases and bigotries pandered to.

Post-racial?  Hell, they're not even post-adolescent!

My favorite part of the article is where the Daily Vatican rag (as opposed to just the Vatican Rag -- thank you Tom Lehrer) noted that using God to justify hatred is a genuine blasphemy, as Pope Francis has said several times

Hypocrisy is truly an art form with these dicks.
