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.

Two white-clad workmen outside the Oval Office, one with '44' on his cap removing an executive desk chair, the other with '45' on his cap bringing in a highchair

Love the picture, Daniel and Grinning Cat.

The Trump-on-bottom pic maybe was NOT photoshopped. It's well known to D/S folk that many dominant men like to play the submissive in power exchange games AND PAY WELL TO DO SO. That Maher is playing the top is a stretch.

Thanks, Daniel -- that picture says a lot. Here it is directly:

(Instagram makes things difficult; it puts a transparent layer on top of the image, so you can't just right-click to save it. In Firefox, Page Info > Media helps a lot. In Chrome, you might have to look around, either through right-click, Inspect, or menu, More Tools, Developer Tools, then Sources. Of course, screen capture is always an option!)

I couldn't get this to embed but wanted to share.

Trump and Putin.

From the looks of things, DT is well on his way to imploding.  Slow motion train wreck. The senate, including some Repubs, may well investigate.  If they have an ounce of patriotism, they will do so.  Being Repub does not automatically make them all 100% pure partisan.  Many people concentrate on prostitutes urinating for him, but concerns about blackmail, with a potentially treasonous quid pro quo, are worse.  Manchurian Candidate 2.0.  True, it could be more fake news.  DT claiming that is kind of the pot being shocked, shocked, shocked that the kettle would say such a thing.  Julian Assange may be less pro-DT than anti-American, pro-chaos political monkey-wrench anarchist, and is another wild card.  In fact, the only way he can possibly reestablish some credibility for being supposedly unbiased, while having been one of the many straws that broke the Clinton camel's back, is to expose more dirt on Trump.

It's going to be a dirty and painful time.  I advise all to try to find more focus on what makes you happy.  I will not waste what may be my final years, on fear and loathing and anger and resentment about this thing I have no control over whatsoever.  My aim is to be happy regardless of what happens.  Even if that is playing violin on the Titanic, it makes it better.

Four great comments in a row, thanks Grinning Cat! The one about twitter goes well in Media Issues too, and No Nonsense.

[cartoon line drawings of man and woman holding hands] This is Bob. He voted for Trump. This is Bob’s [‘]friend[’] [quotes added in red] Sally. Sally voted for Clinton. [Text struck out in red:] Bob & Sally are still friends, because Bob and Sally are both adults. [¶] Be like Bob and Sally. [End strikeout; all following text in red:] Sally feels betrayed by Bob because he voted for someone who: mocked the disabled, bullied the media, made racist comments, was accused by many women of sexual assault, degraded an entire religion, and was the candidate endorsed by the KKK. She thinks even if Bob isn’t a racist, ableist, xenophobic, misogynistic sexual predator, he was fine voting for one. This distresses her. [¶] Sally realizes Bob never really shared her values. She believes her life would be better off without someone who places Trump’s showmanship over common human decency. [¶] Sally won’t normalize Trump. Sally refuses to be gaslit. [¶] Be like Sally.(Click to enlarge; copy and paste into a plain-text editor like Notepad to get the text. Via Tiger Quinn at Joe.My.God.)

The #DirtyDonald Oath of Office: I do solemnly swear (curse out everyone who criticizes me) That I will faithfully (hahaha) execute (I love executions) the Office of President of the United States and will, to the best of my ability (hey, thanks for the low benchmark) preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States (if you tell me what's in it, but I'll have to think about it.) What I will do is bully my detractors and serve myself and Puppet Master Putin.(Click to embiggen -- as if tRump's head weren't big enough already! Again, plain text can be copied and pasted.

Twitter logo bird in tree: 'TWEEEEEEEEET!' Media [watchdogs?] dogs barking up that wrong tree, as one 'Trump's Conflicts of Interest' fat cat says to the other, lounging in and on the neighboring tree, 'Relax, the distraction works every time...'

Satire from the Borowitz Report, newly apropos now that tRump is talking about having Congress "advance" the money for a wall on the Mexican border:

NATION WITH CRUMBLING BRIDGES AND ROADS EXCITED TO BUILD GIANT WALL

...Across the U.S., whose rail system is a rickety antique plagued by deadly accidents, Americans are increasingly recognizing that building a wall with Mexico, and possibly another one with Canada, should be the country’s top priority.

Harland Dorrinson, the executive director of a Washington-based think tank called the Center for Responsible Immigration, believes that most Americans favor the building of border walls over extravagant pet projects like structurally sound freeway overpasses...
