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.

Keith Olbermann asked it, and I'm forwarding the question:
Are These People HIGH Or What?



Resist.  Peace.

A bill is in the works to repeal the Consumer Complaint Database. It would also eliminate the CFPB's authority to punish unfair, deceptive or abusive practices among banks and other lenders, and it would allow the President to handpick—and fire—the bureau's director at will.

And on the "Economics" side of this group, Ivanka Trump's brand is doing really well... :)

A protest sign explaining "Alt-Jesus":

(silver-haired woman holding a large protest sign above her head) ALT JESUS - Fear everyone - Expel the stranger - Blame the poor - Ignore the sick - Feed the rich - Love only thyself - Trust only Caesar - Throw lots of stones

I've already written both of my senators about that and other issues ... not that it will matter, since they're both extremist conservatives.  My congressman is G.K. Butterfield, who is already doing everything I could want him to do.  I'm in a neighborhood that is about half African-American, so I got gerrymandered into his 80+% Democratic district.

For reference, look at our congressional districts:

This state is literally the worst in the country for that.  A federal court has ruled that they have to be redrawn, since they're unconstitutionally discriminatory, but it's going to take a while to get the maps redrawn.  I'm not sure when the special election is.

Please see the "writing to congress" group for my letters to my senators on the Trump / Russia situation.  Honest critique welcomed.  Since it's a letter to a senator, I did not use language that I might use here.

Imagine the shit that would be endlessly spewing out of the mouth of every Republican Congresscritter if any Democrat through the primaries and the election had had his or her tongue a tenth as far up Putin's ass as 45*'s.

Bertold, speaking of Trump's ties to Russia, I can't wait to see how this one shakes out:

I don't know that I buy the implication that at least part of this is a direct payout to Trump, but we'll have to see how this shakes out.
