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.

Delaying Climate Policies Could Cost U.S. Economy $150 Billion Each...

The White House’s Council of Economic Advisors (CEA) released a sweeping report Tuesday on the monetary costs of delaying action on climate change, and it had one glaring conclusion: the longer America waits to act, the more money will be stripped from the U.S. economy.
As with insurance, the report found that paying money over time to mitigate the risks of sea level rise, severe weather, drought, and other potential impacts of global warming would be far less expensive if done sooner rather than paying for the aftereffects later, and absolutely less expensive than waiting to deal with more catastrophic climate-related events.

Tom, like it or not, bad news outweighs good news.  It always has, and I suspect it always will.

That major success for Obama had competition: an airliner shot down over Ukrania and a flare up in the war between Israel and Hamas.

In politics shit sometimes happens. Don't get conspiratorial about it.

Loren, I like the Major success in Obama's Iran Policy;
"This is a big deal.  A major foreign policy success.  Iran is ending its nuclear program.  All without a shot being fired.

"And that is the problem.  And why you won't read about this.

"Because if we aren't dropping bombs on someone it just isn't possible for a policy to succeed to the "smart" people in Washington."

Good posts, Joan and Grinning Cat!

Grinning Cat! I love your Obama meeting with Republicans. Ridicule, sarcasm, hyperbole, mockery, satire, exaggeration, distortion, imitation, caricature, and parody all have their place in making a point. This one is a jewel. I'm reposting.

"The U.S. Supreme Court has said it: Corporations are people, and can be religious people!

Where do corporations' religious beliefs come from? Why, the Bible, of course!"

Paraphrasing slightly, Joan: "The real takers are the wealthy who inherit their fortunes. And their ranks are growing."
