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.

Same Sex Marriage

In Australia, we are currently voting on the question of same sex marriage (yes, we are a little behind the rest of the modern world). The reason I raise it on this forum is because this political/ethical question is typically divided along…Continue

I have for years heard that WSJ's news is credible but its editorials are all Wall Street.

Who owns it now? News Corp and Rupert Murdoch.

Yeah, very often partisan, but credible.  The story is all over the place, at this point.

Well, we've been wondering who would be the first to turn on Trump.  Looks like we know, now.  If this is as bad as we're hoping ... or at least as bad as I'm hoping ... do you think Pence could go down, too?  President Ryan?  He's third in line, after all, and I somehow doubt he would be involved in Trump's Russian scandal.

So, this is the Wall Street Journal, which reasonable people would hopefully still agree is not fake news. (Oftentimes fucked news, yes, but not generally fake)

Mike Flynn Offers to Testify in Exchange for Immunity

WSJ

As an adviser to Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign, and later one of Mr. Trump’s top aides in the White House, Mr. Flynn was privy to some of the most sensitive foreign-policy deliberations of the new administration and was directly involved in discussions about the possible lifting of sanctions on Russia imposed by the Obama administration.

He has made the offer to the FBI and the House and Senate intelligence committees through his lawyer but has so far found no takers, the officials said.

This could be a "holy fuck!" moment. Or yet another artful dodge.

To put it simply, Drumpf is:

  • Ignorant
  • Self-involved
  • Narcissistic
  • Inflexible

While at the same time being empowered at a level few could dream of, being President of the United States.  To say this situation makes him supremely dangerous is to understate with malintent!

I'd like to see him tested for Alzheimer's, too.

‘Religious Freedom’: A Euphemism for Our Times

"Despite the fact that the actual piety of Donald Trump has always been open to question, the list of people for whom he has expressed hatred nonetheless won him the votes of 81 percent of white evangelicals and 60 percent of Catholics in November. And lest we assume that Trump’s removal from office would make America secular again, an army of white supremacists and theocrats is waiting in the wings."

Bert, Republicans are willing to destroy lives if doing so will increase the profits of fossil-fuel industries. Trump is signing the necessary laws.
