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.

We, you and I, claim to live in a democracy, a place where the rule of law stands higher than the rule of man. We believe such fallacies because that is what we learned in school, from the first time we stood tall and proud and repeated the "pledge…Continue

Yet another cartoon nightmare scenario about the Orange One as president, considering two "presidential" (not!) options...

President Donald Trump, eyeing the two red buttons on his Oval Office desk, a shocked general looking on. The buttons are labeled 'TWEET' and 'NUKE'.

          >The entire Republican party is a good scapegoat.

Finally, a good use for them, as opposed to their usual sop of making everyone else a scapegoat.

It sure as hell feels like that's a definite possibility, doesn't it?  He can blame it on all sorts of people afterward, too.  The entire Republican party is a good scapegoat.

Michael Moore: Trump Is Self-Sabotaging His Campaign Because He Never Really Wanted the Job in the First Place - He's running for president to get a better deal for "The Apprentice." (Alternet)

But then, he may be too big a narcissist to voluntarily step down and (in his eyes) declare himself a "LOSER!"

The Orange One is right: the upcoming election is rigged... but actually in the Republicans' favor! These two cartoons explain:

On the left: a diverse crowd of people in line for the VOTER I.D. desk. Signs overhead: 'YOU MUST SHOW PROOF OF LAWFUL PRESENCE', 'YOU MUST SHOW PROOF OF IDENTITY', 'YOU MUST SHOW PROOF OF RESIDENCY'. On the right: a completely clear, red-carpeted line with a sign overhead: 'EXPRESS LANE - YOU MUST SHOW PROOF YOU ALWAYS VOTE REPUBLICAN'.

Couple in a car, passing a political billboard. He: “Look at that! Another billboard touting an incumbent who will coast to an easy re-election. I say, THROW THE BUM OUT!” Next frame: the billboard is revealed to say “RE-ELECT Gerry MANDERING” She: “Without true redistricting reform, that's easier said than done...”

Ruth, that cartoon on running a family like a corporation illustrates the problems perfectly!

Back to the election...

Doctor to Uncle Sam in his exam room: “I’m not sure that being ‘sick’ of this election qualifies you for medical marijuana.”

Isn't that supposed vision of Roberts's about the worst possible blasphemy that it's possible to commit?  About the only possible translation I can come up with that isn't horrific blasphemy is that Trump is actually Jesus coming back.

And congratulations, Pat.  You had a messed up dream.  I have plenty of bizarre dreams, and mine are far more interesting.
