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.

I came to learn about Kristi by way of my favorite YouTube dude, Steve Shives.  She may not be as prolific as Steve as it comes to video production, but when it comes to taking a topic and being utterly, scathingly on point, she shows many of the…Continue

The original title of the following video was: "The Way of the Mister: Atheist Fundamentalist," but having watched it twice, I can't escape the feeling that my moniker fits as well and perhaps a bit better.  In 20 minutes and change, Brian Dalton…Continue

The good news: "Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown is a strong advocate for breaking up the big banks and is now on the Senate Finance Committee. And Elizabeth Warren, scourge of Wall Street, will sit on the Senate Banking Committee. "

Stocks are way over-valued right now, Robert Reich

Get ready for a bumpy ride. I've been here before and it ain't go'n to be pretty.

Robert Reich doesn't think the current economic "recovery" is susta...

This is what I am reading from others as well and I think they look at the obvious evidence to support this news.
Consumers don't have $ with which to buy.
Banks are not willing to lend.
Employed worried about their jobs.
Median wage dropping further, adjusting for inflation.
Saving for education and retirement more difficult.
Social Security rose from 4/2% to 6.2%, about $100 month.
Stimulus is over.
States cutting jobs and spending.
Fiscal showdown delayed 3 months.

Take a look at what happens in Europe, Japan, China.
Chance of recession for next 18 months is 50%.

Thanks Sentient, too bad Viet Name ate up the money that could have made a big difference. However, his anti-poverty program reduced the poverty rate by half. Really good for "bombs or butter" disputes.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

“For nearly four years you have had an Administration which instead of twirling its thumbs has rolled up its sleeves. We will keep our sleeves rolled up. We had to struggle with the old enemies of peace--business and financial monopoly, speculation, reckless banking, class antagonism, sectionalism, war profiteering. They had begun to consider the Government of the United States as a mere appendage to their own affairs. We know now that Government by organized money is just as dangerous as Government by organized mob.”

"Congratulations to everyone at Frontline involved in producing the documentary. I urge Frontline to revisit this issue because it is one of defining matters that will decide whether our Nation will restore the rule of law and return to greatness."
