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.

It is a difficult task to turn the memory of Hurricane Katrina into a quaint story of well-meaning government actors unable to save a city from destruction. President Donald Trump managed to do that on Saturday morning when he essentially blamed…Continue

Speaking of this being 'Merica now,

“President-elect Trump is creating a government of, by, and for the oil and gas industry,” stated Ken Kimmell, president of the Union of Concerned Scientists. “Never before have we seen such a concentration of extreme wealth and privilege in a single cabinet.” [emphasis mine]

It’s Hard To Overstate How Anti-Environment Donald Trump’s Cabinet ...

Great cartoon, Grinning Cat.

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.”

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.

I read somewhere he got bored after two.
