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.

In other words, we haven't previously had a president stupid enough to fall for the Russian propaganda.

Joseph - we have the same hope.

Today’s Russia hearings actually revealed something new and important


[WAPO opinion]

In a moment that stunned the hearing room, Watts flatly stated that the president himself has become a cog in such Russian measures. When asked by Oklahoma Republican James Lankford, who appeared visibly dismayed, why, if Russians have long used these methods, they finally worked in this election cycle, Watts’ answer was extraordinary.

“I think this answer is very simple and is one no one is really saying in this room,” he said. Part of the reason, he went on, “is the commander in chief has used Russian active measures at times against his opponents.”

I have for years heard that WSJ's news is credible but its editorials are all Wall Street.

Who owns it now? News Corp and Rupert Murdoch.
Comment by Joseph P on March 31, 2017 at 3:05am

Yeah, very often partisan, but credible.  The story is all over the place, at this point.

Well, we've been wondering who would be the first to turn on Trump.  Looks like we know, now.  If this is as bad as we're hoping ... or at least as bad as I'm hoping ... do you think Pence could go down, too?  President Ryan?  He's third in line, after all, and I somehow doubt he would be involved in Trump's Russian scandal.

So, this is the Wall Street Journal, which reasonable people would hopefully still agree is not fake news. (Oftentimes fucked news, yes, but not generally fake)

Mike Flynn Offers to Testify in Exchange for Immunity

WSJ

As an adviser to Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign, and later one of Mr. Trump’s top aides in the White House, Mr. Flynn was privy to some of the most sensitive foreign-policy deliberations of the new administration and was directly involved in discussions about the possible lifting of sanctions on Russia imposed by the Obama administration.

He has made the offer to the FBI and the House and Senate intelligence committees through his lawyer but has so far found no takers, the officials said.

This could be a "holy fuck!" moment. Or yet another artful dodge.

To put it simply, Drumpf is:

  • Ignorant
  • Self-involved
  • Narcissistic
  • Inflexible

While at the same time being empowered at a level few could dream of, being President of the United States.  To say this situation makes him supremely dangerous is to understate with malintent!

I'd like to see him tested for Alzheimer's, too.
