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.

The Satanic Panic - The Witch Hunt of the Late Twentieth Century (Seth Andrews)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller on Wednesday. 1 Reply

Yeah, but does it have to be a 10 on the Richter scale?

Prescient, from before the election:

Trump supporters telling a reporter, “Look, all we want is someone who will shake things up in Washington.” Behind them is a parade of deplorables and monsters including a hooded Klansman with a stick or bat, a huge Nazi thug wearing a swastika, an angry man in camo with a rifle and crossed bandoliers, and an anthropomorphized H-bomb (nuclear mushroom cloud).

They don't have jobs.

They cost taxpayers money.

Ruth - great repurposing of that classic line!

I wish he would spend 3 or 4 months here fighting fires & still deny global warming!

Grinning Cat, your cartoons reveal the loss of our innocence and the encroachment of cynism that destroys and the kinds of love that kills.  

I long for those days of not knowing our government is corrupt and we have been fed propaganda.  

NO! I need to know, I must take effective action against such a government. 

OK, I am ready for the truth and continue to send letters, make phone calls, and stand against corruption at all levels of government.
