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

GC and Joan, I wholeheartedly agree with your recommendations.  I have been thinking along the same lines but am not as articulate as you are.

My humble apologize that I didn't include a list of news sources when I sent the Discussion. I had the list ready to send and kept thinking of other reporters and news agencies that I like and so I am still updating the list.  I will finish it tonight and send it so you can wake up to some interesting and intelligent news.

The orders are priceless. Lol
And I, for the last two weeks, haven't been able to get through to McConnell at the Whitehouse. I wonder why the call volume is so high ;)

The name "Trump" need not clutter our communications. We have more noble and credible matters to which to attend. "45 POTUS," or the "Republican Party" make understandable references.

Comment by Grinning Cat on February 8, 2017 at 12:42pm

Bernice King (youngest daughter of MLK) quotes "some wise advice circulating", including:

  • not even naming tRump ("45 will do");
  • focusing on his policies, not his orangeness;
  • supporting artists and the arts;
  • being careful not to spread fake news; and
  • taking care of ourselves.

Also, she suggests assigning his actions to "the Republican administration" or "the Republicans". "This will have several effects: the Republican legislators will either have to take responsibility for their association with him or stand up for what some of them don't like; he will not get the focus of attention he craves; Republican representatives will become very concerned about their re-elections."

The imnature little boy in chief, stuck in unreal reality.  Much more scarey than Chauncey Gardiner... his very evil twin!

(For now... his nomination of ultraconservative Neil Gorsuch to Merrick Garland's stolen Supreme Court seat isn't the end of his trying to stack the courts!)
