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.

Loren, Joseph, Ruth, agreed!

Not even making believe that tRump isn't insane and dangerous, but the resulting perception that other people's ideas that usually would have been recognized as outrageously far-right are "not so outrageous".

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on December 23, 2016 at 9:48pm

I agree with you, Loren.

The push to "normalize" Drumpf continues, which is enormously disturbing to me.

The Overton Window is always a concern.  Although, in this case, I assume you mean the simple attempt to make believe that he isn't insane and dangerous.

Comment by Loren Miller on December 23, 2016 at 4:24pm

It's also a continuation of a highly disturbing pattern associated with Drumpf, yet one which doesn't seem to be upsetting anyone sufficiently to send up a flare about.  The push to "normalize" Drumpf continues, which is enormously disturbing to me.

Well, it's not automatically damning, but it's something that your vetting process should turn up.  I would say that you should avoid candidates who cause such major optics problems, but we are talking about Trump here.

As though the madness with Drumpf hasn't gotten bad enough:

In "Media Issues" I shared a cartoon on president-elect popular vote loser tRump's (hypothetical) press conference; it's also relevant here.

Voice mail? Never. And "being away" is easy to fake.

I set my cell to send incalls to my landline phone, set its ringer to silent and send incalls to my answering machine, and set it to remain silent until a caller speaks. Peace at last!
Comment by Joseph P on December 18, 2016 at 12:47pm

Oh, and with the voice-mails, I never actually know that I'm going to have to deal with one until I have the outgoing message playing.  I guess I could hang up and call back once I write everything down, but if I'm out and about somewhere, that might not be an option.

Anyway, it's an issue of the past, at this point.  The only calls I've made in the past 2 or 3 years have been ones to places of business, such as doctor's offices, the plumber, or similar places that have secretaries who always pick up during business hours.

I can't think of the last time that I've actually called someone that I know in my personal life.  Texting or e-mail works much better, depending upon the person.  My phone is a pocket computer, not a telephone.  It isn't for talking to someone by voice ... unless maybe I'm calling someone through Skype.
