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.

Tom, I just read the article to which you referred, 

The Out-of-TownerWhile Bush vacationed, 9/11 warnings went unheard.....

Yes, the absentee POTUS scares me.

CIA Director George Tenet testified he first found out about the Minnesota FBI's field office report on Aug. 23 or 24, 2001 that Zacarias Moussaoui, an Islamic jihadist, had been taking lessons on how to fly a 747. 

Tenet did not report the information to President G. W. Bush because Bush was on vacation, as was Tenet. 

”Throughout that summer, we now well know, Tenet, Richard Clarke, and several other officials were running around with their "hair on fire," warning that al-Qaida was about to unleash a monumental attack.”

On Aug. 6, 2001, Bush received the President's Daily Brief (by one of Tenet's underlings), warning that this attack might take place "inside the United States." 

Philip Zelikow, on April 13, 2004, the commission's staff director, revealed: ”the CIA had issued several warnings that terrorists might fly commercial airplanes into buildings or cities.”

Tenet testified "I was not in briefings at this time (2001).” Bush ”was on vacation" during the entire month at his ranch in Texas. Tenet, too, was, "on leave." 

”At a time when action was needed, and orders for action had to come from the top, the man at the top was resting undisturbed.”

I reposted to clean up the link.

Thanks to the internet from the bottom people are using shared assetts more than has been done in subirbia maybe since suburbia began in the late 1940's.  Sharing automobiles, lawnmores, and tools is common in rural areas.

I rarely drive my car. If a system was in place such that others could use my car when I'm not using it it would lighten the cost I pay for insurance and maintenance.

Public transportation works better in some metropolis' than others.  NYC's subway, Portland Oregons light rail is efficient. Of course it could be improved. 

The following link describes how much space is taken for roadways and parking spaces.

http://autolife.umd.umich.edu/Environment/E_Casestudy/E_casestudy2.htm

"...Nothing better illustrated the growing dominance of motorized vehicles than its imprint on the land-use patterns of cities. A parking study conducted in California stated that about 59 percent of the ground area in Los Angeles’ central business district (CBD) in 1960 was devoted to streets and parking, with about 35 percent for roads, streets, alleys, and sidewalks, and 24 percent for parking lots and garages not included in buildings with other purposes. During roughly the same period, acreage devoted to streets and parking in other urban cores was similar in scale or slightly less. In Detroit (1953), streets and parking made up 49.5 percent of the central city; in Chicago (1956), 40.7 percent; in Minneapolis (1958), 48.3 percent; Nashville (1959), 39 percent; and in Dallas (1961), 41.4 percent. .."

Has Donald Trump done anything about  his campaign promise to improve infrastructure in the U.S. - besides (sarcastically) removing protected status of some federal land to allow exploitation by mining and forestry conglomerates?

Comment by Cane Kostovski on February 5, 2018 at 8:03pm

Tom Sarbeck, but nobody agrees with me. Most of them cannot imagine a life without money. That saddens me extremely.

Democrats 'un-American' for not applauding speech, Trump says
Mon, 5 Feb 2018 17:47:43 EST
U.S. President Donald Trump accused congressional Democrats on Monday of being "un-American" and perhaps even treasonous for refusing to cheer positive news during his State of the Union address.

Re: Grinning Cat's excellent cartoon: the interesting thing is that while they don't need no education, they do seem to want to depend on thought control!

BTW, I DID eat my meat, so I better get my pudding!
