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.

And now Senate Republicans are finishing their draft healthcare bill, but will keep it secret from Democrats and the public until hours before the vote!

5calls.org is suggesting that we demand that Democratic senators withhold unanimous consent for routine procedures, and shut down the Senate until a public hearing is scheduled. (For Republican senators, we can simply demand a public hearing.)

Mitch McConnell: “Go back to watching the Comey-Trump-Russia circus. We have everything else under control!” (with AHCA as the Grim Reaper)

Bringing together politics, economics, and explicit religion for a change -- a detail, truer than ever, from the Bizarro cartoon "My god ate my homework":

“How a Bill Becomes a Law” poster: (factory spewing pollution from smokestacks) + (oil well spewing oil) + (bill, i.e. paper money) = (Capitol building)

BTW, this rings true for our current Republican administration:

THE PRESS: “WE JUST DISCOVERED THAT RUSSIA MAY CONTROL THE WHITE HOUSE, PERHAPS EVEN THE COUNTRY.” REPUBLICANS: “YES, WE ARE VERY CONCERNED ABOUT HOW YOU FOUND OUT.”

Damn.  Bertold, that "prayer patrol" business is bluntly INSANE.

Comment by tom sarbeck on June 2, 2017 at 5:17pm
Aw, the guv is trying to keep spending down. Let the praying fail and then see what the guy does.

Ruth, knowing the past might help us predict the future, or might not.

Or, knowing that Bernie did not accept a bribe last month (Who really knows?) might, or might not, help us predict whether he will accept a bribe next month.

Welcome to politics--as it is, not as you want it.

Really, tom. The possibility of honesty in US politics is providing cover? Bernie's lifetime of public service speaks for itself.
