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.

Relevant to politics and economics -- Kavanaugh would continue the Supreme Court pattern of the Roberts Five siding with Republican and corporate interests every time, 73 out of 73 5-4 cases -- as well as to religion -- opining that church-state separation is based on "bad history" and wanting religious institutions to participate as "equals" in state benefit programs despite not paying taxes into them:

How the Kavanaugh Nomination Happened [four frames of Brett Kvanaugh talking with Donald Trump] “Mr. President, you should be aware that putting me on the Supreme Court would be a serious threat to women’s rights and to voting rights. I have no problems lying under oath, and I have a history of making misleading statements during Senate confirmation hearings. Finally, at some point during this process I will be credibly accused of committing sexual assault.” “Congratulations! You meet all of the requirements.” [democraticunderground.com]

David Leonhardt:

 … most of the once-obscure bureaucrats whom Trump has tried to discredit ... are experts in some combination of Russia, organized crime and money laundering.

…  as Natasha Bertrand wrote in The Atlantic. Trump … seems to be trying to rid the government of experts in Russian organized crime.

The Urgent Question of Trump and Money Laundering

One theory, put forth by Ross Douthat ...

the most dramatic theory, which is that any collusion wasn’t just something Trump’s team stumbled into during the campaign but something connected to a much longer-running Russian intelligence operation, and that Trump’s relationship to the Russian state is not just a personal or ideological affinity or a campaign-season alliance but a partnership forged through blackmail or bribery or both.

As someone observed, "If the Trump administration can have alternative facts, can we have an alternative president?"

A bit more than a coincidence, Andy, yeah...

Pence is so insecure about his animal sexual instincts that he won't go out to dinner in a group without his wife's leash.

There is something fundamentally wrong with that guy.

Comment by Chris on September 8, 2018 at 7:59pm

will be interesting to see how deep the Meuller investigation goes.  I haven't heard anything about Pence corruption.

Pence is creepy.

Pence is the main reason I don't want Trump to be impeached.

Trump was sly by picking Pence as a Vice-President.
