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 keep imaging a silver bullet remedy for all the social and economic problems on the table. Ideological ideas are too dogmatic no matter how sincere the motives are that underpins them. The real problem lies in the fact that while nobody knows the answers everybody thinks they do.

Sorry, Joan. No time for a 2 hour debate.

I'm trying to convince people that we need to rewrite articles of incorporation so the entities we invented can't privatize profits and socialize costs in the future.

"America's industry/government complex privatizes the profits and socializes the costs."

This is true and is what balloons the income gap between rich and poor. Why the voting public does not understand this is amazing to me. 

This denial matches the denial of those who would proselytize all the people of the Earth. 

I watched a video debate of Matt Dillahunty vs. Sye Ten Bruggencate. It was so funny/painful to watch because I, and I assume others of you, have been with someone with these beliefs. 

America's industry/government complex privatizes the profits and socializes the costs.

The Clinton "GOP (not a) Scientist" commercial is hilarious!  The question of course is:

Will anyone actually RUN it?!?

...the costs generated by the fossil fuel industries far outweigh their revenues.

America's industry/government complex privatizes the profits and socializes the costs.

In a classic example of locked-in, yet perverse economics, recent research from the Judge Business School at Cambridge University confirmed earlier analysis suggesting that the costs generated by the fossil fuel industries far outweigh their revenues. [emphasis mine]


Our environmental deficit is now beyond nature’s ability to regenerate

On climate denial, the GOP's Mad (Not-a-) Scientists:

(It's a Hillary ad.)

Question: WHICH GOP candidate has the mop sufficient to support head lice?  [gee, is this a multiple-choice question?!?]

Comment by Pat on July 22, 2015 at 2:08pm

A recent GOP Presidential poll was release today. While Trump is still doing well, he's being overtaken.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on July 22, 2015 at 1:33pm

Well Spud, I guess it's it's another of those "mysterious ways" in which god moves.

On another front, Rachel Maddow is supposedly interviewing colossal dick Rick Santorum tonight; should be entertaining.
