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.

Joseph, I don't think flipping superdelegates counts as stealing the nomination, because the function of supedelegates is to steal the nomination from registered Democrats. That's like charging the guy retrieving a stolen purse from the hands of a purse-snatcher, to return it to the owner, as a thief.

To change the topic, a quote:

... under the Obama administration’s corporate-friendly “all of the above” energy policy, the United States became the largest oil producer on the planet and massively expanded fracking ... Sorry, you can’t claim to take climate science seriously and at the same time vastly expand your national production of oil and gas. That’s not a credible climate plan. It’s a form of climate denial. [emphasis mine]

He's been a disappointment to me.

How many Republicans does it take to change a lightbulb? None. They would waste millions on “investigations” to blame Obama for the burnt out bulb, block any attempts to install a new one, and insist that we replace it with a candle. (Occupy Democrats)(image source; serial comma added)

One Facebook commenter wrote, "You're making the assumption that they know what a light-bulb is!"

Bernie in the primary; Hillary in the general.  That's been my stance since June or July of last year.

He came a hell of a lot closer than I thought he would, but it's more or less over, at this point.  I can't see him flipping 90% of the superdelegates to his side, and I don't think he should anyway.  It would look like stealing the nomination, when they're this far apart in pledged delegates.

Yes, Jennifer; many Bernie supporters.

Comment by Jennifer W on May 9, 2016 at 4:11am
Any Bernie supporters here?

I'll be there, too, Joan, less to pick brains than just to participate.  And as to someone I'd like to just chat with, Seth Andrews is the first person to come to mind.

As for Trump, he may be the apotheosis of the Republican's obsession with sizzle vs. steak.  He is all bloviation and bluster, the product of reality TV crossed with way too much money and influence ... and he needs to be voted down so hard he BOUNCES.

Rachel Ford has a way with words.

… Donald Trump’s ascendency… should … be a wake up call to the Republican Party that that old fallback of prioritizing the demands of religious fanatics to win elections has an expiration date after all. … Trump’s success doesn’t mean that the Religious Right is defanged — just that, at least on a temporary basis, Republican voters were swayed by more pressing concerns than what was happening in other people’s pants.

Donald Trump Has Won the Republican Game of Thrones

Great Catch-22/Trump-context quote, Loren! <sigh>

I'm jealous, Daniel. I'd love to attend too, but I hate crowds, even non-superstitious ones.

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 5, 2016 at 9:09pm
Daniel, you may be our eyes and ears at the Reason Rally, our reporter on the scene. I hope the turnout is huge; I also hope you get to participate in discussions with "stars of the show".
If I were there, i would hound David Silverman and pick his brain about firebrand atheism. l would also enjoy sitting with Dilahunte to discuss debate strategy.
With whom would you enjoy a chat?
