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.

Just occurred to me that this verse from No Expectations is a perfect ode to the Donald:

You heart is like a diamond
You throw your pearls at swine
And as I watch you leaving me
You pack my peace of mind

Kathy, I would contact KY's League of Women Voters or KY's Common Cause. Both probably have websites.

I've seen both organizations endorse propositions placed on the ballot by voters. Either can probably refer you to people who are working to add such provisions to the state constitution.

Or contact KY's Secretary of State office.

Direct initiative ballot propositions reduce legislators' power so I won 't guess what a legislator may tell you.

Tom what do voters have to do to get direct initiatives?

Good one, GC. (Leave it to the Donald to make a metaphorical truth literal.)

I might have spotted the end of a reply from Hillary.

For a moment my TV showed me a pic of her and the words "Women will  decide this election".

In light of tRump's recently revealed sickeningly misogynistic comments about women, commenter dalee at Daily Kos suggests a new expansion of the Republican Party's initialism:

GOP = Grabbers Of Pussy

(amid discussion that this absolutely needs to be tied to the entire Republican Party until they stop their war on women.)

This feels like the longest and stupidest election in US history.  Possibly in tne history of the Galaxy.

Yeah, Loren - check the weather reports for hell, and bring your ice skates.

I wonder ... would Drumpf make the same statement regarding atheists ... and why do I think the answer to that question is intuitively obvious?

From the latest Catholic Vote missive:

Dear CV Friend,

“I will protect the rights of Catholics... And I don’t care if people call it politically incorrect.”

That’s what Donald Trump wrote in a personally signed letter to me and all members of CatholicVote.org.

In his letter, Trump pledged to sign the First Amendment Defense Act or the Conscience Protection Act should it reach his desk.

He also wrote: “Our current president has not respected American’s First Amendment rights. Many believe he has declared a war on Catholics. And my opponent promises to be even worse!

He continued: “As President, I promise that I will protect the rights of Catholics to live their faith, to serve their communities, and to act on their beliefs without fear. This approach one would think is just common sense. And I don't care if people call it politically incorrect.
