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.

We, you and I, claim to live in a democracy, a place where the rule of law stands higher than the rule of man. We believe such fallacies because that is what we learned in school, from the first time we stood tall and proud and repeated the "pledge…Continue

If I remember correctly, Gary, you tell it like the Bible says. 

"Weymouth New Testament
Let every individual be obedient to those who rule over him; for no one is a ruler except by God's permission, and our present rulers have had their rank and power assigned to them by Him."

~ Romans 13:1

Oh! I remember how hard I tried to be an obedient servant!

I like that Daniel. They forgot to mention that their book says that their "god" puts all leaders in place and that those leaders are supposed to be followed.

Oh, but of course, the Russia investigation should be kept secret ... 'cuz if the public did know about it, either or both of two things would happen:

  • Drumpf would wind up looking more like the horse's ass he is.
  • More people would be looking to have Donnie's head on a pike!

As for garbanzos vs. chick-peas, long as my felafel and hummus has 'em, rock and roll!

And now our new Minister of Propaganda Kelly Ann Conjob claims

Russia investigation should be kept secret ‘to protect the public’

BB, I also saw that as the difference between a lentil and a chickpea.  Funny either way.  Now The Awesome One might try to make it illegal to import foreign garbanzo beans :-)

Daniel, the chickpea joke wins the Internet for the day!

Comment by Daniel W on January 16, 2017 at 1:04pm

BB, go for it!  But watch in your rear view mirror.  I have a feeling hour town might be pro-Trump.
