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.

I wonder what it feels like to know that you are going down in history as the most inept US president ever.

As I recall, Buchanan has held the title since before the Civil War.

How long will Dubya keep it?

(But it IS a funny song, all things considered.)

Mind you,this misunderstanding has brought a smile to my face.

You have to admit it has a funny side to it.

I think we've got a misunderstanding about my term health service sk8ycat. I didn't mean you personally needed your health serviced, 'the health service' is the UK equivalent of the American 'healthcare' system except that 'the health service' is free.

I think the discussions would loose a valuable contributor if you were to stop posting sk8ycat. Besides, I like your company.

Comment by Gerald Payne on May 20, 2015 at 12:26pm

I meant the American nation, not you personally sk8ycat.

WTF have I done to offend you so? 

Medicareless is NOT free, and that is all I am eligible for.

I know I am useless, but physician-assisted suicide is illegal in California, or I would have been out of here years ago.

If you all want me to leave the Nexus, take a vote, and I will abide by the results.  With a few exceptions, this site is getting too nasty for me.
