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.

Bert, the people who WRITE BILLS such as HR 1313 understand and believe in science.
The people who SAY they don't believe in science will vote them into law.

This looks more than a bit scary. 

11/ A bill moving through Congress would let employers demand workers’ genetic test results. The bill, HR 1313, was approved by a House committee on Wednesday, with all 22 Republicans supporting it and all 17 Democrats opposed. It has been overshadowed by the debate over the House GOP proposal to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. 

STAT

Nice how people who don't believe in science are making laws about things of which they have no understanding.

The Madness of President Donald

In the White House, the Bannon-Miller Axis of Weasels is ready to merrily watch the world burn for the sake of pleasing their master’s mercurial moods and their own dark nationalist fantasies. For them, these outbursts aren’t bugs, but core features. They want the Trumpbartian war over all else, and, contrary to what official Washington tries to believe, they want him ragey and dangerous, which is why they’re feeding his paranoid talk (perhaps made vivid for him by his own eavesdropping instincts) about President Obama “tapping” him in Trump Tower.

. . . For the intelligence community, it was one more chapter in the war Trump and Bannon have waged on them since the first days of the Administration. Bannon’s desire to purge the intelligence community and reshape it into a Muslim-and-Mexican Hunting Agency has already pushed career professionals in the IC to their breaking points. One said to me this weekend, “Trump has a pair of twos, at best. The IC has a royal flush.”

Craft beers, pinots noirs and pot keep me off the Xanax train.

HIGH-Larious, Daniel!  She can lean on her Xanax; I'll stick with Glenlivet ... and Aberlour ... throw in some MacAllan and Glenmorangie ... oh, and Kahlua and vodka for Black Russians as a change of pace...

I don't really expect Drumpf to understand that the pendulum COULD swing the other way, but:
