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.

Err, when I say that conservatives have an edge, I mean that they tend to be much lower-information voters.  Christ, that was a horrible way to put it.

Yeah, most voters on either side are fairly low-information voters, but I think conservatives have an edge.  Anyone who thought that Trump was going to be a populist president, even though he ran a populist campaign, wasn't paying attention.

The signs were there, long before the election.  He's going to put his financial interests into a blind trust ... by having his children run his company ... his children who are being included in his meetings with foreign leaders.  And refusing to release his tax returns was a BIG red flag.  That and his rallies looked like fascism in action.

I just don't get it how anyone expecting him to govern in a manner that would be in their financial interests could be fooled.  Sure, anyone making more than a million dollars a year ... but anyone else, not so much.

Ken Burns said that voting for Trump would be to his financial advantage, but I doubt his analysis of the situation.  I want to know how much he makes per year.  I think that Ken was badly mistaken.

It's probably unfair to most GOP voters, who still think we live in an actual democracy and buy the populist propaganda. I used to believe what I'd been told by political authorities, even religious ones, when I was under 20. I'm sure a lot of well meaning, clueless, bigots don't grasp that they've ushered in a US Nazi reality.

I'd not have posted something so nasty were I not so outraged by what the GOP has done. This virulence is symptomatic of my mental state, my overwhelming disgust.

Ruth, oh my!  That's not flattering, is it?  :-)

Trump's 17 cabinet-level picks have more money than a third of American households combined, the title says it all.

BB, this love story can only end badly, with the orange one crying through tears, "I just cant quit you, Vlad-o-mine".  Really sad.

Tom, there is no fantasy as strange as reality.

Aw, I'm a sap for love stories.
