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.

As to the SCOTUS seat stolen from Merrick Garland, tell Senate Dems to grow some backbone and oppose Gorsuch's unindicted coconspirators in the Senate.

GOP majorities in state legislatures can gerrymander US House districts but cannot gerrymander state boundaries so Dems can run competitive candidates.

What do we do about a President Pence?
Here are two of our options.
1) Support church & state separation groups: ACLU, AU, FFRF, NCSE (National Cte for Science Educ), etc.
2) Recognize that legislators pander to xians and introduce bills that will die in committee without being heard, so don't go into panic mode unduly.

Once tRump is gone, what do we do about a President Pence?

Anyway, about more immediate news...

Neil Gorsuch during his confirmation hearings, being asked “...and what’s your stance on receiving stolen goods?..” as he holds an empty Supreme Court justice’s seat labeled “PROPERTY OF MERRICK GARLAND”

Well, this is interesting:

President Pence, anyone?  What do you think it will take for the Republican congress to begin impeachment proceedings?

Thank you, Loren

After Sen. Whitehouse, the Dems have to oppose this nominee. Thanks, Loren.

For those who may be dreading the hearings associated with the nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, please know that there is at least one senator who is holding the nominee's feet to the fire and brilliantly so: one Sheldon Whitehouse:

This article is relatively old, written before the election,

but it addresses the Southern Strategy and its long-range consequences. 

"Dems can launch what Howard Dean called for in 2005: a 50-state strategy that runs on liberating issues. Instead of ignoring GOP bigotry, the Democratic ticket can promise to challenge it on every front and attack reactionary Republicans who try to impose the past on voters.

Above all, Democrats should demand that Tea Party rebels explain why they are in league with a party that intends to cut Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security in order to finance more tax cuts for billionaires. As Scott Lilly suggested, if common folks ever understand the corrupt nature of the Republican coalition, we will see a popular rebellion that makes the present chaos look like, well, a tea party."

Why Today’s GOP Crackup Is the Final Unraveling of Nixon’s ‘Southern Strategy’

Tea Party rebels are exposing the deep rifts between country-club elites and social-issue hard-liners.

Grinning Cat, your comics make me laugh, for once. The news is so grim, I appreciate a grim-relief of any kind.

The GOP budget eliminates a lot. Here are TRUMP'S NEW PROGRAMS - No more Meals on Wheels, but FEELS ON WHEELS available in the presidential limo (Trump: “I will help all the needy ladies.”) - Chemical Safety Board, which prevents industrial disasters, replaced with a Twitter feed (“@ChemicalSafetyUSA: Only LOSERS have accidents!” “@ChemicalSafetyUSA: Bunsen the Safety Bear sez: [cartoon of flaming bear in lab coat and eye shield] 'Fire hurts!'” - With PBS defunded, Sesame Street replaced with SESAME GULAG (cartoon: Mr. Snuffleupagus breaking rocks in a prison camp, thinking “Sigh.”) - Americorps to be replaced with AMERICORPSE (cartoon: dead Uncle Sam, flies buzzing overhead)(via Alternet. click to enlarge)
