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.

 Trump hit his all-time highest disapproval rating Tuesday—60 percent—in Gallup's rolling daily tracking poll.

But not only did the Don hit his personal best, he totally bested every other president dating back to Nixon. Here's a brief look at how many days it took for the following presidents to attain 60 percent disapproval status.

Nixon: 1,736
Ford: Never
Carter: Never
Reagan: Never
H.W. Bush: 1,290
Clinton: Never
W. Bush: 1,758
Obama: Never
Trump: 144

Simply the best: Trump hits 60 percent disapproval faster than any ...

Trump family wedding planner tapped for job overseeing distribution...

Like a king doling out titles and land to loyalists, the U.S. is now Trump’s own personal fiefdom. He’s proved it once again by announcing he’s selected Lynne Patton for a key role at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development:

Patton was appointed Wednesday to head up the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Region II, which includes New York and New Jersey, where she’ll oversee distribution of billions of taxpayer dollars.

What makes her qualified for a job overseeing billions of taxpayer dollars? She coordinated Eric Trump’s wedding, not to mention some ‘celebrity’ golf tournaments.

And now Senate Republicans are finishing their draft healthcare bill, but will keep it secret from Democrats and the public until hours before the vote!

5calls.org is suggesting that we demand that Democratic senators withhold unanimous consent for routine procedures, and shut down the Senate until a public hearing is scheduled. (For Republican senators, we can simply demand a public hearing.)

BTW, there are LOTS of updates on current issues in the group Writing to Congress, mainly thanks to Ruth.

Mitch McConnell: “Go back to watching the Comey-Trump-Russia circus. We have everything else under control!” (with AHCA as the Grim Reaper)

Bringing together politics, economics, and explicit religion for a change -- a detail, truer than ever, from the Bizarro cartoon "My god ate my homework":

“How a Bill Becomes a Law” poster: (factory spewing pollution from smokestacks) + (oil well spewing oil) + (bill, i.e. paper money) = (Capitol building)

BTW, this rings true for our current Republican administration:

THE PRESS: “WE JUST DISCOVERED THAT RUSSIA MAY CONTROL THE WHITE HOUSE, PERHAPS EVEN THE COUNTRY.” REPUBLICANS: “YES, WE ARE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT HOW YOU FOUND OUT.”

Aw, Loren, he's pandering. He wants to be re-elected. That's evidence of either insanity or inability to do any kind of work.

Damn.  Bertold, that "prayer patrol" business is bluntly INSANE.

Comment by tom sarbeck on June 2, 2017 at 5:17pm
Aw, the guv is trying to keep spending down. Let the praying fail and then see what the guy does.
