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.

I have a theory

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Plinius Jul 16. 1 Reply

I have a theory and I have had it for a long time. It started when I realized that religion was nothing more than myths and fables turned into sacraments and scriptures, that they were created by human beings, and they did not tell the truth. From…Continue

|       Why are we still investing in dirty fuels?

Key words: Investing, investor, et cetera.

A recent newspaper article about the World Bank taking action against a Latin American nation started me to wondering why I took so long to see that the words government of the people, by the people, and for the people blinded me to the reality that America is a government of investors, by investors, and for investors.

I took a real long time. Decades ago I read that before the 1770s American Revolution, England was reserving the Appalachian region for the native peoples, and that after the Revolution the new government sold those lands to investors who sold them to colonists who wanted to move west.

The Yazoo Land Fraud -- Wikipedia tells a somewhat sanitized story -- soon followed.

How to Make the Economy Work for the Many, Not the Few #8: Make the...

Why are we still investing in dirty fuels? Why are we not charging 
polluters for contaminating our environment? Why don't we invest in revenue that benefits everyone? 

Instead of investing in dirty fuels, let's start charging polluters for poisoning our skies - and then invest the revenue so that it benefits everyone.

If the Tea Party psycho ceramics stay home,  that would be such a relief!  (Don't tell them that some states allow Permanent Absentee Voting....I've been doing that for 20 years now.  MUCH easier!  Oregon has vote-by-mail only....they get more returns, and the counts are more accurate)

Segueing to another sort of TP, here's a graphic I saw on the web, credited to Americans Against The Tea Party. This meme deserves to be spread far and wide among them. (Click to enlarge.)

ATTENTION TEA PARTY - OBAMA AGENDA ALERT! When you go to the polls and they ask for your name and check you off in the registry... it's really just a way for Obama to get your name and address so he can send people to take your guns and put you in a FEMA camp! DON'T VOTE! Save yourselves from the dictator and stay at home! (Spread the Word! Please share all of your Tea Party friends

My mother only went to school through 8th grade, but always read everything she could get her hands on, and loved playing with words.  I guess it was contagious.

My first year with Holiday, she sent me a postcard from Marineland in Palos Verdes; her handwritten message was, "Witch chewer ear."  Took me a while to figure it out.  Duh!

Interesting segway from TPP to Toilet Paper Party to Koch bros. to Georgia Pacific. 

I love the way your mind works, Felaine! 

Comment by sk8eycat on June 11, 2015 at 9:01pm

Whenever I see "TPP" I think "Toilet Paper Party."  Sorry.  I can't help it....we've used "TP" as shorthand on shopping lists since I was a baby.

and the Koch bros. DO own the largest TP company in the us...Georgia Pacific.

"We establish no religion" billboard perfectly states what it is I want. It is not often I can say something positive about Reagan. On separation of church and state, I agree!

Ruth, excellent and clear description of TPP and reasons why it is not a good agreement for people, the environment and the Earth. 

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on June 11, 2015 at 8:26pm

This little video about the TPP is easy to understand.
