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.

We, you and I, claim to live in a democracy, a place where the rule of law stands higher than the rule of man. We believe such fallacies because that is what we learned in school, from the first time we stood tall and proud and repeated the "pledge…Continue

Please see the "writing to congress" group for my letters to my senators on the Trump / Russia situation.  Honest critique welcomed.  Since it's a letter to a senator, I did not use language that I might use here.

Imagine the shit that would be endlessly spewing out of the mouth of every Republican Congresscritter if any Democrat through the primaries and the election had had his or her tongue a tenth as far up Putin's ass as 45*'s.

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???
