Politics, Economics, and Religion


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.

Yikes: A cybersecurity firm says that a database of registered voter information containing personal data on nearly 200 million Americans was left online without proper security by a contractor hired by the Republican National Committee.

The GOP Health Care Plan 2, "stop being poor", beats their 2009(?) Plan 1, which as I recall was something like "die soon."

America's leaders need to stop buying an empire.

If they would return to conquering an empire, we would have money for health care and plenty of patients. :)

Well, I went and did it.  Seems as though no one in Ohio was petitioning Governor John Kasich to stick with the Paris Climate Accords ... so I started one!  Here it is, and whether you're an Ohio resident or not, please lay your John Hancock on it.

Great cartoons, Ruth!

Another one about Jeff Sessions:

A Day with Attorney General Jeff Sessions... “I have a brilliant legal mind... when I can remember stuff!” / “Did you feed the cat, Jeff?” “Any meeting with the cat is covered by executive privilege...” [Cat is thinking “NO”] / “Did you take out the trash, Jeff?” “I am offended by your question, but if I had specific knowledge of whether I did or did not would be in closed session...” / “Sir, do you want cream and sugar?” “...That request is inappropriate, and I am troubled that you would make me struggle to recall whether that is my legal opinion.” / [in bed] “...Why did you even agree to work for Trump?” [thinks] “...I don’t recall.”(click to enlarge; copy/paste into Notepad etc. for text)

 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.
