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.

A very timely essay from Benjamin Corey--

America Isn’t Growing Hostile Towards Christians, It’s Growing Hostile Towards Religious Bullies.

Trickle down economics - How we’re told it works (bottle pouring wine into the top glass of a pyramid of six; the wine spills over and completely fills the other five glasses) - What actually happens (bottle pouring wine into the top glass of a pyramid of six; the wineglass keeps expanding and expanding, and the other five glasses remain empty)(Of course, after the revelations concerning Russian prostitutes, our Republican PEEOTUS gives other meanings to the term as well!)

After these last few months, I don't blame them for mocking us.  There was this, back before the election, when seemed like there was no way in hell that Trump was going to happen:

I was at a protest today - posted some pics in the forum.  I thought about starting a chant, but (a) I'm too introverted and (b) couldn't get it right.  Something like "Vladimir and Donald, sittin' in a tree.  K-i-s-s-i-n-g. First comes love, then a little shower, then comes Russia, with all their power"  but I don't like that last part yet.

"Here’s a political cartoon from the Netherlands. The whole world can see our President has been compromised by Putin & they’re mocking us."A Trojan horse with Donald Trump's head has landed next to the Statue of Liberty, and Russian soldiers climb out. (Jonathan Riley on Twitter)

There are a few, yeah.  A lot of their straight reporting is good.  Of course, you can get that same, straight reporting from plenty of other sources, so there's no reason to go to them for most things.

What they're mostly known for is their opinion shows, which makes sense since that's over 80% of their lineup.  I think there are about 2 hours a day that are straight-up news reporting, and that tends to be at least passable.
