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.

Giant bear, '2016 Russian meddling', with bloody teeth and claws, devouring Uncle Sam, while hunter Chaffetz with his rifle looks the other way, saying 'SHHHHHHHH! I'm hunting Hillary's emails!'(click to embiggen)

Satire from the Borowitz Report, brilliantly extrapolating on grains of truth:

"Putin Agrees to Receive Intelligence Briefings in Trump's Place"

In what Donald Trump’s transition-team members are calling a further example of international coöperation, Russian President Vladimir Putin has agreed to receive daily U.S. intelligence briefings in the place of the President-elect.

Trump, who had earlier decided that he did not need the briefings and had assigned Vice-President-elect Mike Pence to receive them, said on Tuesday that Putin was a “much better choice.”

“No offense to Mike, but Vladimir Putin is just a terrific, terrific guy to do this,” he said. “He knows all the players.” [...]

Thanks, Ruth. I'll repost, more clearly labeled.

You're forgetting; Trump just won the presidency.  This is 'Merica now.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on December 13, 2016 at 8:17pm

Grinning Cat, you just assumed AN readers would recognize the Borowitz Report comment as satire. Please remember some of our members are not native English speakers, and might not realize it's satire right away.

I'm sure that there's arrogance in there somewhere, too, but I think it's mostly indifference, in this particular instance.  He seems to be in this for the self-aggrandizement and financial self-enrichment.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 13, 2016 at 7:52pm

The arrogance is beyond astounding.

Comment by Joseph P on December 13, 2016 at 7:17pm

That was the number when I last heard about the subject, yeah.  I'm hoping that he has perhaps sat in on a few more since then.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 13, 2016 at 6:26pm

I read somewhere he got bored after two.

Comment by Joseph P on December 13, 2016 at 6:14pm

So, how many intelligence briefings has Trump actually sat for, so far?  Are we up to 5 yet?
