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.

Joan, I bought my tickets and made hotel reservations for the Reason Rally in June. Then I saw your post ant thought, Oh No! I reserved the wrong month! But, figured out the DAY of reason is not the same as the RALLY for reason. Whew!

“YOUR GREED IS HURTING THE ECONOMY!” (Tycoon standing on a mountain of cash, shouting and pointing at a woman holding a sign, “RAISE the MINIMUM WAGE”, next to a single bill [banknote])

Ahhh, the Republican bubble.  Bill Maher has known about it for a while:

Anthropomorphized elephants at the Republican National Convention, wearing '[heart] GUNS' and 'NRA' buttons, holding signs, 'MORE GUNS = LESS GUN VIOLENCE', 'GUN RIGHTS NOW', 'GUNS FOR almost EVERYBODY!' Off to the side, a Black young man notes to the Black young woman with him that the Republicans are in a 'BULLETPROOF ENCLOSURE...'

(A palatial 'RNC Republican Establishment' headquarters building in Washington DC, connected by walkways to its neighbors Super PACs Unlimited and Chamber of Commerce. Flanked by golden elephant statues, two politicians/tycoons are talking on the front steps.) 'Trump's painting us as a bunch of rich, arrogant elitists with nothing but disdain for the little guy...' 'Time to unleash a multi-million dollar ad blitz and scare those bone-headed rubes back into line!'

Great quotes, Ruth! (Especially Elizabeth Warren: "calling on Donald Trump... is like if your house is on fire, calling an arsonist.")

On the Republican Party in general:

Elephant painter adding footnotes to signs: NEVER EVER RAISE TAXES* *unless they are payroll taxes / MARRIAGE IS SACRED* *unless Newt needs another divorce / BIG GOV'T IS BAD* *except the military part / GET GOV'T OFF OUR BACKS* *and into our uteruses / DEFEND THE FAMILY* *unless they're illegal immigrants / BE CIVIL* *unless you're Rush or Ann Coulter / (more signs in the background) / Caption: The Principled* Pachyderm / (the paint dripping from his brush splattered onto the ground in the shape of an asterisk)(click to embiggen)

We have an economy that’s in real trouble. But when the economy is in this kind of trouble, calling on Donald Trump for help is like if your house in on fire, calling an arsonist. He started out rich and he cheated his way to getting richer. That is not going to build an America for hard-working people. [emphasis mine]

Elizabeth Warren

Watch: Elizabeth Warren to Colbert: 'Calling Donald Trump for Help ...

Good link, Bertold. I especially like:

Oh, dear, sweet, dumb Republicans,...
It's laughable that a group of psychopaths believes that the psychopath who likes to disembowel his prey and dance with the innards is just a little too crazy to support. [order mine]

Just a little too crazy... tRump

The Rude Pundit put up a great love letter to Republicans today.

Note to Republicans: You Own Trump, You Psychopaths
