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.

Yes, thank you, Joan! Reproductive freedom in one concise sentence. And glad to hear about how you found your adopted son.

On another note (though I didn't pay attention to the Oscars):

"Every Mother A Willing Mother, Every Child A Wanted Child." Perfectly put! Thanks, Joan. And thank you for your personal story.

"Every Mother A Willing Mother, Every Child A Wanted Child."

"The right to reproductive freedom is fundamental and imperative. Reproductive choice ensures that women have the means for self determination and planned parenthood. Only with these rights are women full, equal citizens in control of their bodies and their futures."

~ Dr. Henry Morgentale

I miscarried five times when we were trying to have children. We arranged an adoption through a physician who referred us to an ob/gyn with whom he and his wife had dinner the night before. A young single girl came into the ob/gyn's office with a sad and too frequent story of getting pregnant and wanting to adopt the baby out. We went through a screening process and waited for six months until a baby boy arrived. We had to have her signature and ours on a court order before we could see our baby. We took him home when he was five days old. The hospital required that I ride out of the hospital in a wheelchair holding our baby because that was the protocol for departing newborns.

A fertilized egg’s chances of miscarrying: 1 in 4.

A sack full of hammers?

Are they the hammers the US gov’t bought for $600(?) each several decades ago, maybe when Reagan was president?

Comment by Patricia on February 17, 2019 at 7:44pm

True, but the phrase is Rick's favourite.

Comment by Loren Miller on February 17, 2019 at 7:43pm

At least hammers have a useful purpose, Patricia.  I can't think of a single viable purpose that Donnie Dumb-ass serves at all.
