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.

Somehow "patriotic devotion" ought to be an oxymoron.

Well, the wording of this proclamation isn't at all creepy:

Love the blather, Reince, repeat line GC.

Since the Trump administration loves citing “ALTERNATIVE FACTS”... can we get an ALTERNATIVE PRESIDENT? (Occupy Democrats)

Comment by Grinning Cat on January 24, 2017 at 2:20am

(Left to right: Donald Trump, Reince Priebus, Kellyanne Conway) Blather. Reince. Repeat.

That's the point of it, Bertold. Well put. His blatant self-inflating lies scream "Dictator!" and "Failed State!" to anyone with half a brain.

Framing the Denier-in-Chief as The Joker is so apropos.

From the New York Times, one of the scarier sentences I've seen lately:

Disinformation was for dictatorships, banana republics and failed states.

That past tense verb is a pip, to say the least.

Yet there it was on Saturday, emanating from the lectern of the White House briefing room — the official microphone of the United States — as Mr. Trump’s press secretary, Sean Spicer, used his first appearance there to put forth easily debunked statistics¹ that questioned the news media’s reporting on the size of the president’s inaugural audience (of all things).

Also worth repeating - Loren's reply:

"ANYONE who thinks I'm going to lay down and play dead while the orange nightmare runs amok doesn't know me at all!

And speaking of orange nightmares, maybe we should start associating Drumpf with this guy:"
(Gossamer, the big hairy orange monster in Loony Tunes cartoons)

Daniel W.'s comment on Loren's status today, about tRump's inauguration, is worth reposting. (Bolding is mine.)

"Try not to let it get you down too much.  I feel disillusioned, probably as much as anyone.  But letting this individual, his name, and his confederates disillusion you and make you feel defeated, also makes it more difficult to pull out and fight the battles to follow.  Each win and each defeat is only temporary.  After Bush the Younger was president, we got Obama.  True, much damage was done during the interim.  But who knows what will come next.  Damage will be done, but out of the ashes a phoenix will rise.  It's the job of the opposition to make sure that phoenix is not a dodo bird."

Joan, that is also the verse that I was thinking of.
