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.

The whiny little bitch (h/t Bill Maher) clearly has zero interest in actually doing this job.

Mike Flynn might be done – but Trump’s nightmare has just begun

[Irish Times]

We have barely begun to scrape the surface of Trump’s fatal compromises with Russia. It was only last week that US officials say they corroborated some of the communications in the famous British dossier detailing those compromising situations.


Trump can pretend all he likes. He can bluster his way through TV interviews and at the presidential podium about everything from the tiny crowds at his inauguration to supposed illegal voting by non-citizens.


But sooner or later, the presidency – and the constitution it is supposed to defend – catches up with you. A commander-in-chief can’t compromise his own nation’s security and expect to keep his job.


Flynn’s short White House career may be over. But Trump’s nightmare-a-lago has only just begun.

Yeah, he does some rather good parody (irony?).  Probably a lot of the inspiration for The Onion.

More satire from the Borowitz Report:

Trump says he has been treated very unfairly by people who wrote Co...

Hinting darkly that “there’s something going on,” Donald J. Trump complained on Friday that he has been treated “very unfairly” by the people who wrote the United States Constitution.

“If the Constitution prevented me from doing one or two things, I’d chalk that up to bad luck,” he said. “But when literally everything I want to do is magically a violation of the Constitution, that’s very unfair and bad treatment.”

Lashing out at the document’s authors, Trump said that “America is a great country, but we have maybe the worst constitution writers in the world.”

“Russia has much better constitution writers than we do,” he said. “I talked to Putin, and he said their constitution never gives him problems.”

“The situation is very unfair!” he added.

In an ominous warning, Trump said that, as of Friday, he was putting the writers of the U.S. Constitution “on notice.” “I don’t have their names yet, but that’s something I’m looking into,” he said. “These jokers are not going to get away with this.”

The Church Sign Generator (which was one of my favorite gadgets too) seems to be offline. The domain it used to be at brings up a suspicious "Recommended: Disable Search Tracking" page; I'm NOT clicking on that button!

(Looking at the page source, it looks like it's trying to get you to install a so-called "private search" browser extension. Legitimate privacy and anti-malware companies don't advertise by grabbing other people's expired websites!)

GC and Joan, I wholeheartedly agree with your recommendations.  I have been thinking along the same lines but am not as articulate as you are.

My humble apologize that I didn't include a list of news sources when I sent the Discussion. I had the list ready to send and kept thinking of other reporters and news agencies that I like and so I am still updating the list.  I will finish it tonight and send it so you can wake up to some interesting and intelligent news.

The orders are priceless. Lol
And I, for the last two weeks, haven't been able to get through to McConnell at the Whitehouse. I wonder why the call volume is so high ;)
