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.

Thought of a bumper sticker: 

Piss on Trump

When is someone going to dub it pee-peegate?

I've been reading up on this. They asked for four warrants to examine Trump associates' secret Moscow intelligence meetings last summer already, and didn't get any till October. His expression here reminds me of Bill Clinton's saying, "I did not have sex with that woman."

SNL comic relief. The US may be going down the tubes, but we'll laugh for a while.

Light BDSSM, sure, although I don't take it as far as dungeon play.  I only ever play the dom side, but I'm down for that, sure, if a girl is into it.

The discussion was already AT BDSSM, though.  ^.^  I only took it down roads that I'm definitely not into.  I have one or two odd quirks, but nothing I'm into involves furries, bestiality, any kind of body fluids, or anything else I brought up.  I've just had way too much exposure to people who make me look normal.

And yeah, I know that sexually aggressive, unwanted behavior is a common thing amongst politicians.  Wiener was just sufficiently indiscreet and incompetent about it to the point that he got caught at it.

Joseph, for a moment I considered saying you took the thought to where you are, or to where you want to go, but realized that I too sometimes take analysis all the way to hell. And BDSM, of which I've done some, is endlessly variable.
A paperback titled A SEXUAL PROFILE OF MEN IN POWER by a shrink and a hired writer told the tale at length. Anthony Wiener is not an outlier.

And yes, I know that I'm seriously over-analyzing what was a throwaway comment from you, but once I was halfway through writing that, I figured to hell with it.

@Tom

It runs both ways.  Sometimes people's sexual inclinations are a direct parallel with their behavior outside of bed.  Sometimes it's a reversal.

I think that the role flipping is a minority occurrence, if anything.  It's just particularly noteworthy when it happens, since people find it amusing.  So, we stress it more, in popular media.

If I had to throw out random possibilities, I would guess that there could be something like a urination fetish going on with Trump, or something along those lines.  Going from what I've encountered, the urination thing is mostly a specific form that a humiliation fetish can take, rather than a fixation on the material, itself.  Although, of course, there could be some who focus on the material and aren't as influenced by the humiliation aspects.

I haven't exactly done a thorough polling of that community, since I don't really want to get that involved with them.  The whole bodily-fluid/bodily-waste thing is really not my scene.  Blood doesn't bother me, since it's a fairly clean fluid, and if you're already having sex with someone, then once everyone's tested, you're fine ... although it doesn't do anything for me.

Any other bodily-fluids, though?  Yeah, not happening.

It's sort of like the furry/bestiality crossover.  I know there's a whole lot of overlap, in terms of people who are into both, and while furries amuse me on a conceptual level, I really don't want to look too deeply into the crossover between that and bestiality, because ... eww.

Anyway, given how much of a kick that Trump got humiliating Christie and Romney, that seems like it would be his thing ... the urination thing, I mean.

... although, Trump in a furry outfit would be pretty hilarious.
