Politics, Economics, and Religion


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.

Public Citizen warns of known dangers hidden in the Trans Pacific Partnership. Even with the extreme secrecy, we know enough, due to partial leaks of the secret text, to be very afraid. For instance, we know the TPP would:Lower U.S. wages by…Continue

Presidential election - last time around Michelle Obama said : "The truth matters." Republicans are laughing all the way to the bank at the quaintness of such a naive thought.

I don't know why Nancy Sinatra is delivering the lyrics, but it makes for interesting imagery.

Daniel and Loren, We have to be noisier! More vocal! Able to confront ignorance! Stop being afraid of offending someone for their beliefs! Be critical! Speak what we know to be true! 

The old hard headed ones won't listen and I don't really care. They will die off. The sad thing is, the younger ones are indoctrinated before they learn how to think and become contaminated with delusions. 

The people I want to read and think about my writings are the ones who haven't thought about these important issues one way or the other. They hear both sides, but don't understand the real challenges facing us. 

Contaminated foods of all kinds exist, they can be proven to do harm to farmers, consumers, and surrounding environments. Ignorance is not bliss.

This was via DailyKos-


The U.S. Department of Agriculture still hasn't dropped its plan to speed up chicken processing lines from 140 chickens per minute to 175 and allow "visibly contaminated" chicken carcasses to stay on regular processing lines rather than being taken away for cleaning. That would mean all the chickens would be sprayed with extra antimicrobial chemicals....


That's really bad.  We already have antibiotic resistant diseases because of overuse.  Those chemicals are sure to harm the workers, the environment, and whoever winds up eating the contaminated chickens.

Somehow, we must come to realize that the winner is not the one with the biggest army, bombs or bullets, but the one with the value of protecting people, living things, including water, air and soil, and the Earth.

"It is baffling to me that members of Congress speak at the NRA's annual gun fest, an orgy of military hardware marketed to civilians, while the head of the gun lobby group essentially trumpets the need for armed revolt." Mark Fiore

His parody video is creepy/funny and effective at making his point.

Thanks for posting that political cartoon, Ruth. I'm glad I got to see it.

Ruth, your comments 42 minutes ago did not come through to my wall. I found it in the mail, it was John Colbert, saying to Korea that we need to talk. 

Perfectly response to Korea!

I have another with no photo or URL from Monday but can't find it. This happens quite often and I just go on. However, you always send such treasures, perhaps we can sort out why some of your mail does not come through to my wall or to my URL. I enjoy reading your cartoons and comments and If there is an easy fix lets try to fix it, If it's not an easy fix, just let it go. 

Just for clarity, John Colbert came to my wall with no picture, nor did it have a URL in my mail.
