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.

Poverty Has Always Accompanied Capitalism

Bertold, speaking of Trump's ties to Russia, I can't wait to see how this one shakes out:

I don't know that I buy the implication that at least part of this is a direct payout to Trump, but we'll have to see how this shakes out.

Loren, 45* was born into a dysfunctional family and his brain developed in response to his environment. Those behaviors are his defense mechanisms and will not Change until and unless he recognizes they are dysfunkional.

When/if he perceives his behavior does not get him what he wants, he will not change. That is why it is so important that ne is confronted on every single one of his manipulative devices!

Tom, l agree, get rid of the Electoral college!
Comment by Loren Miller on February 14, 2017 at 2:05pm

Tom, before Drumpf can grow into the job, it might help if he bothered to GROW UP, a process I am in no way convinced he is capable of.  I don't see him changing or maturing into the presidency as time passes, and ultimately, yes, I DO see him being removed from office as a national necessity.

The blunt fact is that you or I would be better suited to that position than he is ... but you and I would also face our own limitations and recognize our inadequacy to the office.  He can't.

Comment by tom sarbeck on February 14, 2017 at 2:02pm
Loren, thanks for the Young Turks clip. Trump's saying "It's hard being president" might lead to his growing into the job. That he made it into the office might awaken us to getting rid of the Electoral College.
Comment by Joan Denoo on February 14, 2017 at 12:59pm
This situation with 45* produces no redeeming qualities and so many of us could see the incompetence of the man. My intention is to work to see him impeached! We cannot risk the consequences of his policies a d practices.

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

Comment by Loren Miller on February 14, 2017 at 10:57am

Meanwhile, NEWS BULLETIN!!!  Drumpf has found that being president is HARD!!!  Whoda thunk it???

Comment by Loren Miller on February 14, 2017 at 8:49am

DAMN, GC, that is LOUSY news.  At least we got the do-it-yourself Drumpf's executive orders page!

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.
