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.

[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...

Ruth, "BLOTUS - Biggest Liar Of The United States" is so true, much more than "President-Elect Of..."!

One cartoonist's take on last Friday's proceedings in Congress:

DIPLOMA (with Seal of the President of the United States in upper left, and U.S. flag in upper right) - This is to certify that Donald J. Trump has successfully graduated from the ELECTORAL COLLEGE Magna Cum Loud With a B.A. in B.S.(via Twitter)
