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.

To put it simply, Drumpf is:

  • Ignorant
  • Self-involved
  • Narcissistic
  • Inflexible

While at the same time being empowered at a level few could dream of, being President of the United States.  To say this situation makes him supremely dangerous is to understate with malintent!

I'd like to see him tested for Alzheimer's, too.

‘Religious Freedom’: A Euphemism for Our Times

"Despite the fact that the actual piety of Donald Trump has always been open to question, the list of people for whom he has expressed hatred nonetheless won him the votes of 81 percent of white evangelicals and 60 percent of Catholics in November. And lest we assume that Trump’s removal from office would make America secular again, an army of white supremacists and theocrats is waiting in the wings."

Bert, Republicans are willing to destroy lives if doing so will increase the profits of fossil-fuel industries. Trump is signing the necessary laws.

This would pretty much fit in most groups or discussions. A less than comforting consideration.

A “Gadsden flag” with not one but two coiled rattlesnakes, Trump and the GOP, swallowing each other. Motto underneath: “DON’T TREAD ON US, WE’RE EATING”

My reaction:

(kitty 'praying' with caption) From your mouth to Ceiling Cat’s ears

I hope they do destroy each other, while we still have a workable democracy and a livable planet!

(Yes, with a nod to the meme that prayer is as therapeutic and as effective as talking to your cat!)

Don't forget to ask Senators and Representatives to take the nuclear football out of tiny hands.
