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.

    In San Francisco several decades ago, new stadium opponents called it "sports socialism".

    Too few of us protest.

    Mr. Pierce on Ted Cruz's endorsement of Drumph:

    Finally, Something to Laugh About in This Godforsaken Campaign

    Not since 2008, when John McCain sucked up to the same forces that had soaked his young daughter in calumny four years earlier, have we seen such an abject spasm of hilarious self-abnegation as we saw from Tailgunner Ted Cruz, fearless fighter for the Constitution, dauntless soldier of the living Christ, and marshmallow-spined careerist. There hasn't been much to laugh about in this godforsaken campaign, but I'm rolling on the floor over this one. What an absolute coward. What a comic fraction of a statesman. What a pocket-sized imitation of a United States Senator.

    Bertold, that piece by Pierce on Cruz, presents a funny/tragic figure.

    I don't remember the reference to McCain's daughter in 2004. The only thing I found was her public displays of sexuality and being in a lesbian relationship. Yes, that would be a problem for McCain and his ambition. 

    Pierce surely knows how to select words that evoke powerful images. 

    "an abject spasm of hilarious self-abnegation as we saw from Tailgunner Ted Cruz, fearless fighter for the Constitution, dauntless soldier of the living Christ, and marshmallow-spined careerist."

    That is funny, especially looking at Cruz's less than handsome face.
