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.

Bert, I wasn’t thinking. Touché.

Holmes said he saw no bottom so he must have been looking up.

Century of Enslavement: The History of the Federal Reserve

The Creature from Jekyll Island

G. Edward Griffin, the author of the bestselling and a long-time Federal Reserve researcher, explains:

"G. Edward Griffin: What happened is the banks decided that since there was going to be legislation anyway to control their industry, that they wouldn’t just sit back and wait and see what happened and cross their fingers that it would be OK. They decided to do what so many cartels do today: they decided to take the lead. And they would be the ones calling for regulations and reform.

"They like the word “reform.” The American people are suckers for the word “reform.” You just put that into any corrupt piece of legislation, call it “reform” and people say “Oh, I’m all for ‘reform’,” and so they vote for it or accept it.

"So that’s what they were doing. They decided, “We will ‘reform’ our own industry.” In other words, “We will create a cartel and we will give the cartel the power of government. We’ll take our cartel agreement so we can self-regulate to our advantage and we’ll call it ‘The Federal Reserve Act.’ And then we’ll take this cartel agreement to Washington and convince those idiots there to pass it into law.”

"And that basically was the strategy. It was a brilliant strategy. Of course we see it happening all the time, certainly in our own day today we see the same thing happened in other cartelized industries. Right now we’re watching it unfold in the field of healthcare, but at that time it was banking, alright?"

Sadly, I agree that our constitution was written by lawyers and property owners to protect government of, by, and for capitalists. The general population was scammed into thinking voting existed to protect the people. The Common Man continues the struggle for freedom.

Tom, if I knew what your up and your down was, I might understand your statement.

Ruth, in 1787 a bunch of rich men wrote a constitution and made a government of, by, and for investors.

Whoever said it was of, by, and for the people lied.

Bert, Jack Holmes is looking down more than he’s looking up. You gotta stop always looking down.

Truly, there is no bottom to the depravity. Moore will likely win the election, and McConnell will seat him in the Senate. His Republican colleagues will probably welcome him as another vote for plutocratic tax "reform," and for conservative judges nominated for the federal bench. They might think twice about next year's Bring Your Daughter to Work Day, though.

Tax breaks for corporations who (remember, a corporation is a person), build in a community usually means a need for more services. More schools, medical facilities, more traffic, need for more housing and roads, more police and fire to serve the increases. The corporation (he or she) may not be contributing a fair share of the costs of maintaining a civil community. If that is the case, the people are responsible for making a loud protest and keep going until changes occur.

No wonder Fresno was in Bankruptcy.  

In Amazon HQ Frenzy Fresno offeres the nost inovative deal of all


As was expected by everyone in the entire world, Amazon’s request for bids for a new headquarters location set off a feeding frenzy among municipal and state leaders all across North America.

Upon the tolling of the Oct. 19 deadline, proposals had come in from 238 cities, states, and regions in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Many of these offered unimaginably lavish tax incentives — let’s face it, the equivalent of bribes. New Jersey offered $7 billion. Chicago and Illinois, $2 billion, with a broad hint that lots more could be had for the asking. That’s not counting the more childish bids for attention, such as Tucson’s shipping a 21-foot cactus to Amazon’s existing headquarters in Seattle, or the offer by Stonecrest, Ga., to rename itself “Amazon.”

In this parade of municipalities draping themselves in their most alluring swimsuits, however, one city stood apart with what may be a uniquely intelligent and innovative proposal for what Amazon labels its “HQ2.” The city is Fresno, which proposed to make Amazon a partner in financing and managing the benefits and challenges presented by the wholesale importation of 50,000 well-paid professionals into a community.

Rather than the money disappearing into a civic black hole, Amazon would have a say on where it will go.
