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.

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

What a hilarious video, Joan. Too bad it can't be embedded.

Tea Party Galaxy: Voyage to the Center of Delusion

Remember, the Tea Party's main demand is an end to Obamacare, a health care reform law that was passed years ago.

What we really need is universal health care, but that will take some more tweaking.

Randy Neugebauer slams memorial ranger

There he goes, blaming others for what his party has created. This is getting very old!

One member of Congress does the right thing during govt shutdown. "... please withhold my pay."

Buy clothes (and everything else) at thrift stores,  It won't matter where they were made. Recycle, barter, sew (Yah, sure), and borrow, Buy American stuff when you can.

Cheap clothes are cheap at a high cost.  Who needs to buy  three dollar shirts at Walmart?  The merchandise is shoddy and the workers get paid a wage that won't sustain them. And benefits don't exist.  Same for the walmart workers.  A wage they can't live on and no benefits.  I know many people, me included, have to stretch their pennies but if these damned corporations would pay a living wage wouldn't we all be better off?

  • ...the questions remain unanswered.

Sentient, Chris: not so. Daniel Webster is alleged to have said if we take the decision-making into our own hands we won't do too much harm. If we leave it in the hands of others we do no good.

The number of employee-owned businesses is growing.

Employee ownership's purpose is wealth creation, so it will grow more rapidly than political democracy is growing.

I hope we reach the tipping point while earth is habitable.

You're right, Sentient, the questions remain unanswered. I've seen it so many times now, that people petition against dangerous workshops and child labor and then lean back contentedly. Take away child labor and the children will be exploited as prostitutes, petition again and everything goes underground but the exploitation remains. Marriage? Too horrible to think of when young girls are sold into marriage. The weak have no protection.

I only climb into a neat outfit for work; at home I wear old things. Wonderful how long you can use old clothes.
