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.

Bertold, I will second that emotion with one caveat. Leave off the "almost."

And Ruth, you're correct. TPP will do to the American worker, especially union workers, what NAFTA did to American manufacturing. I can hear the flushing sound already.

If almost any of the R candidates is elected we are horribly screwed.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on August 10, 2015 at 3:10pm

Agreed, Hex5! On another topic,

TPP countries:

The 12 countries involved in the agreement include: Canada, Mexico, Japan, Australia, Peru, Vietnam, the United States, Brunei, Chile, Singapore, New Zealand and Malaysia.

Leaked Trans-Pacific Partnership draft would force Canada to rework...

Mr Pierce offered another new word for me: repechage.

How does one pronounce it?

Repechage (/rəpɛʃˈɑːʒ/; French: repêchage, "fishing out, rescuing") is a practice in series competitions that allows participants who failed to meet qualifying standards by a small margin to continue to the next round.

repechage

Loren, thanks for the citation on "Not a scientist"!

I like the theme; however, I would rather see the film clips with the statements so that I can know each man and a woman said what they appear to be saying. Actually, the voice of the woman was there. The theme is a perfectly valid one and should include the people who fund their campaigns. 

Thanks

Hey Cat - It's a good thing the T is silent, because nothing else about the Donald is. I remember once Caine in Kung Fu said You should not speak if your words are not better than silence. Donald could have learned from that.

The following is from Mr. Pierce's anticipation of tonight's debate, entitled Rick Santorum Is Mad He Didn’t Make the Cut:

“If he had the sense of humor god gave a stone, Santorum would realize that the undercard debate actually is a second chance to launch a campaign – an unprecedented kind of political repechage heat. And, with Donald Trump threatening to turn the Main Event into an extended exercise in human sacrifice, it is possible that the earlier debate could turn out to be the more dignified and substantial of the two. (In fact, that's going to be the easiest way to spin the whole evening, especially if Trump runs wild. I can already hear my man Chuck Todd expressing his surprise at how "substantive" the first debate was. Hell, he thinks this is the most formidable Republican field since 1980.) Fiorina seems to get this. So does Huckleberry J. Butchmeup [AKA Lindsay Graham], who's the one responsible for cleverly renaming the lid-lifter the "Happy Hour Debate." That Santorum is raising a fuss over missing the cut shows a desperate lack of both imagination and wit.”

One more cheap shot, that I'm not above passing along: someone on another site observed that the "T" in Trump's name is silent.
