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.

Aaaaand now we have obstruction of justice and witness intimidation, which are absolutely impeachable offenses, even if nothing comes of the Russia stuff.  Is Trump really this stupid, or does he want back to his old life this badly?

How to Drain the Swamp... (Donald Trump pointing to himself in an ornate, gold-framed mirror, saying, “YOU’RE FIRED!”)

Aaaaaaand we have a distraction attempt in place:

If you check out the video, at 1:28, Trump demonstrates his profound ignorance about ... well, yet another of the many things about which he doesn't have a damned clue.  He cites a 2012 Pew Research study that examines inaccurate and out-of-date voter records and presents it as evidence of widespread voter fraud.  He doesn't seem to comprehend the difference between the two.

It's even worse than my one uncle who tries to lecture the rest of the family about his insane, libertarian economic views, when he doesn't even understand that there's a difference between the budget deficit and the national debt.

Oh, and here's an interesting read: a bit of a dive into the real motivation behind Comey's firing.

We can hope.  It turns out that the pride that Donald feels over all that he's learned about healthcare is a little misplaced.  He seems to think that health insurance should cost $15/month ... somehow.  I can't help but wonder what sort of care that sort of insurance is going to cover, after he strips the subsidies significantly.

I agree ... actually, I think he's overstating the amount.  I think that basic health insurance should be free, something along the lines of Medicare-for-All.  I'm just educated enough on the subject to realize that that's going to cost a whole lot of money from the national budget.

. . . chaos turns upon itself eventually, and that may be the best shot we have.

Hell, he's rewarded mindless loyalty over any sort of competence, since long before the election.  We've seen that he thinks of the cabinet positions as rewards for his sycophants, rather than executive roles meant to accomplish a specific goal.

No reason he shouldn't think of every single other governmental position the same way.  He thinks that the entire government is there to fulfill his every wish, since he won the government.  I bet we get someone similarly appropriate to Rick Perry as Energy Secretary, for Comey's replacement.

There's also this:

Apropos to the suspiciously conveniently-timed firing of Comey:October: candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump standing side by side, with a 'COMEY' bomb coming down on Clinton. November: mushroom cloud where Clinton stood, Trump still there, impassive. December: a plume of smoke where Clinton was, Trump silent and impassive. January: smoke dying down, Trump still there. February, March, April: Trump still there. May: Trump says, 'Oh my gosh, Hillary! Are you OK???'(click to embiggen)
