Politics, Economics, and Religion


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.

Spake is past tense and doesn't take an auxiliary.

Auf Deutsch, also sprach Charlie.

But you don't have to go dissing him by calling him Pope. Although he is a (at least semi-retired, I think) Catholic with a gen-you-whine Jesuit education. And those fuckers do tend to be smart.

And, especially, all of you morons who bought what the inevitable product of 30 years of fear-driven democratic malpractice was selling across the country in 2016: that he had a plan that would lower costs, cover everybody, and not touch Social Security, Medicaid, or Medicare.
Today is not the day for you to ask for my understanding as to how you're going to afford Grandma's chemo now that she's busted the lifetime cap on her insurance. Today is not the day for you to ask for my sympathy for Grandpa who's going to get his ass hoisted out of his rest home and dropped onto the couch in your basement family room because his Medicaid ran out. Today is not the day for you to moan into TV cameras about how Cousin Clyde with the opioid problem has to go back to sticking up tourists for his fix because the little hospital up by the mountain closed.

Yikes indeed! A cleaner link to the article: https://consumerist.com/2017/06/19/personal-info-for-200-million-u-...

And Tom, we'd have money for high-quality universal single-payer healthcare with plenty of patients if we weren't supporting a patchwork of predatory private insurers and their shareholders.

(Or if we weren't insisting on military spending greater than that of the eight next largest budgets -- those of China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, India, France, UK, Japan, and Germany -- combined!)

Yikes: A cybersecurity firm says that a database of registered voter information containing personal data on nearly 200 million Americans was left online without proper security by a contractor hired by the Republican National Committee.

The GOP Health Care Plan 2, "stop being poor", beats their 2009(?) Plan 1, which as I recall was something like "die soon."

America's leaders need to stop buying an empire.

If they would return to conquering an empire, we would have money for health care and plenty of patients. :)

Just revealed! The super-secret text of the AHCA bill intended to "repeal and replace" the Affordable Care Act (via Kris T @ktactivism on Twitter):

Well, I went and did it.  Seems as though no one in Ohio was petitioning Governor John Kasich to stick with the Paris Climate Accords ... so I started one!  Here it is, and whether you're an Ohio resident or not, please lay your John Hancock on it.

Great cartoons, Ruth!

Another one about Jeff Sessions:

A Day with Attorney General Jeff Sessions... “I have a brilliant legal mind... when I can remember stuff!” / “Did you feed the cat, Jeff?” “Any meeting with the cat is covered by executive privilege...” [Cat is thinking “NO”] / “Did you take out the trash, Jeff?” “I am offended by your question, but if I had specific knowledge of whether I did or did not would be in closed session...” / “Sir, do you want cream and sugar?” “...That request is inappropriate, and I am troubled that you would make me struggle to recall whether that is my legal opinion.” / [in bed] “...Why did you even agree to work for Trump?” [thinks] “...I don’t recall.”(click to enlarge; copy/paste into Notepad etc. for text)
