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.

Thank God for the honesty and integrity of Donald Trump, America's moral compass during these difficult times

Trump called the groups opposed to the Nazis the 'alt-left' and it’s about time we had an appropriate name for extremists whose views are so militant that they’re opposed to Nazis

Thanks for the last 2 comments, Grinning Cat. I hope these shaming inflatables begin appearing everywhere he goes.

That Patheos article was a hoot. " Native American Tribes released statements saying sending students to Germany to learn about genocide isn’t necessary." Couldn't stop laughing! Why don't we have revered sites honoring Native American genocide victims?

From Gothamist:

 (click to embiggen)

Hours before the president is scheduled to arrive in Midtown, a 15-foot inflatable "Trump Rat" has been erected two blocks from his Trump Tower residence.

Reminiscent of the inflatable rats often placed outside New York City worksites accused of union-busting, the inflatable features Donald Trump's likeness characterized with a long tail, buck teeth, a Russian flag lapel, and Confederate flag cufflinks.

... "Political discussion is one for me where people trade ideas about what the actual policies are, on the issues, I don’t think that's what we’re [doing] here," Lee said.

"We want to ridicule this very thin-skinned, very incompetent guy who has no business being President of the United States." ...

Massachusetts To Send All Students To Germany For Holocaust Education (Laughing in Disbelief)

"[...] “If the nation did this twenty years ago, then we wouldn’t have a country brimming with neo-Nazis wanting to turn America into another failed German Reich. The first three were colossal failures,” stated State Senator Andrew Canard. [...]

The costs of making sure every student in Massachusetts goes to Germany and receive their inoculation against fascism may seem absurdly high. Thankfully, recreational marijuana was recently legalized. Tax revenues from its sales will pay for the program. [...]

Health insurance companies unsuccessfully attempted to alter the Holocaust Education Act. They wanted to ensure students don’t learn anything about the German health care system. There were reasonable fears that students would learn how crappy the American system really is. [...]

In related news, Native American Tribes released statements saying sending students to Germany to learn about genocide isn’t necessary."

WSJ is reporting that Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury.

Subpoenas and witnesses and indictments, oh my!

Trump Considers Prolonging Afghan War to Secure $1 Trillion in Unta...

"The New York Times reports that Trump may have found a reason to prolong the nearly 16-year-old war: Afghanistan’s untapped mineral deposits, which could be worth nearly $1 trillion. Trump reportedly discussed Afghanistan’s vast deposits of minerals with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani and is considering sending an envoy to Afghanistan to meet with mining officials."

US wars that intend to get access to another country's resources does not make any sense in this age. We don't need to put our young men and women at risk in order to create wealth for US.
