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.

Withdrawling funding to effective government services is a plan to 'show' that government and democracy doesn't work.


I have mine - go fend for yourself sort of attidude.

In sarcasm.

Here's a poser for you: what happens if the CDC, very simply says, "No.  We will not censor ourselves for your sake."  Trump's reaction, of course, would be to defund the Centers for Disease Control, even as he has attempted to delegitimize multiple other regulatory agencies under his administration.  This argument is already in the wind in the major news media.  It was, in fact, covered on yesterday's CBS Evening News and will doubtless be seen by many as an attempt by Trump to exercise dictatorial power against an organization whose service to the US is all but beyond question.

And dear Donnie will have yet one more set of crosshairs aimed at him (as though he didn't have enough, already!).

For what it's worth here is a link that  will show how rising sea level will effect areas.

I wonder where one can find the real estate developers and politicians when the water rises 39 inches?

Can anyone imagine investing in property, including land and a home, when the science tells them of the sea level rise.?

When I searched for a home to buy, I looked at floodplain maps. I bought a home that would not be flooded until the next ice age melts. I do live in an area that was covered in ice during the  Pleistocene Epoch that began about 2.6 million years ago and lasted until about 11,700 years ago. The city of Spokane is located in the floodplain that occurred when the ice melted.  

Jeez! who would fall for developers' claims?

North Carolina's making sea level rise findings illegal says important people in the state own property they will be unable to sell.

"If your science gives you a result you don't like, pass a law saying the result is illegal. Problem solved,"

Some words should be defined better tor public consumtoin.

A term that wasn't appropriate when I worked for the Navy was "State of the Art" That was meaninless.

It seems the objective  with 'don't use these word in writing aren't banned.  The may be have to be defined better.

Centers of Disease Control from using the words,  “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based”

What ever you do, don't write:

Evidence and Sience shows those with Entitlement prey on the vulnurable and may enjoy diversity.  Liasions with a transgerder  person may result in an  unwanted fetus

Comment by Chris on December 19, 2017 at 12:31am

We can have a lot of fun with banned words.


Peak Prosperity News Update 12-15-2017

By prohibiting the Centers of Disease Control from using the words,  “vulnerable,” “entitlement,” “diversity,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “evidence-based” and “science-based” in any official documents prepared for next year’s budget, Trump denies reality, he squanders the ability to communiate facts and figures, while he manipulates with propaganda.

Ruth, thanks for that take on cynicism.

In political talks in Arizona I was once saying idealists wanted the water situation to be better than it was while realists accepted the water situation as it was.

I needed an antonym for idealists and used cynics.

The first part of your “Cynicism is a way to avoid responsibility....” is close to my saying Arizona’s cynics, who would profit when the water situation worsened, were solving their problem by evading responsibility.
