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.

In re: the "Trump Presidential Library," such a structure would be a waste of building materials ... UNLESS it was built as a warning, both to future citizens and presidential candidates, AGAINST following in the footsteps of the 45th president of the United States.

What is the value of labor? How does one define "labor"? Does the person giving care for the very young, the elderly, and the infirm perform labor" How about those who gather and manage our trash, do they labor, or do cleaning people? What is their value to individuals or corporations? What if caregivers, trash collectors, cleaning people were to go on strike, would they be missed? Perhaps this nation needs a few strikes by these workers!

Why did Kelly delay telling what he knew? What was his intention, to wait until after the impeachment charge was tried and over? Does it make a difference? 

When does one reveal personal knowledge? What does one do with the information now?

All too plausible if a few more state legislatures turn Republican and call a constitutional convention (some Republicans who are disgusted with Trump may nevertheless show up and vote Republican for other offices):

Donald Trump: “We were worried about the status of the Second Amendment. So we eliminated the FIRST Amendment and now it has the top spot!”

Has anyone asked the Supreme Court’s chief justice if he will preside at what Moscow Mitch wants the Senate to do?

Comment by Donald L. Engel on December 30, 2019 at 8:29pm

Grinning Cat, I agree with your thoughts on the Republican party.  What a sickening mess !!!

Comment by Donald L. Engel on December 30, 2019 at 8:27pm

I saw part of the CNN special on Linda Ronstadt today, (Dec 30,2019), and she said that when Trump was elected, America was at the point where Germany was before Hitler came to power.  She said that when Trump got elected, she told her family that the Jews were going to face some bad times in America.  At least, that is what I understood her to say.  She hit it pretty close considering the happenings this weekend.

Another irregularly scheduled political cartoon: White-haired radio interviewer looking at his phone, thinking, “A whole library? Wouldn’t a flash drive suffice?” On mic, with NPR mug visible: “We’re joined today by Ned Mutter director of planning for the Trump presidential library! So tell us about the library, Ned!” “Well, as you know, Mark, Mr. Trump doesn’t actually read, so we won’t have any of the boring briefing books or memos that fill other presidential libraries. What we will archive, however, are his tweets--the crown jewels of Mr. Trump’s presidency, raw and unedited for grammar, spelling, civility, or logic. My staff hopes to have them all fully indexed by insult, grievance, brag or conspiracy theory by opening day!” “So there WILL be a physical structure?” “Are you KIDDING? The Trump library will be the last word in hi-rise luxury, complete with 120 exquisitely appointed condos for all the scholars!” “Wow. Sounds amazing.” “No, no, BEYOND amazing! The future pride of the Moscow skyline!”

I strongly disagree with equally blaming "both parties". I'm observing the decay and the moral failures squarely in the once-great Republican Party, which sold its soul for the Southern Strategy and became the party of "I've got mine, screw you."

The erstwhile party of Lincoln has become the party of John Wilkes Booth. (Confirmed by candidate Donald Trump "joking" about "Second Amendment" solutions to HRC nominating judges.)

Over and over again in recent decades, the Republican Party has been firmly against life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for anyone who's not a fetus and whose last name isn't Inc.

(One example that came to mind immediately: Republican crime and corruption? No problem! Deflect! Distract! Incite murder!)

Comment by Donald L. Engel on December 20, 2019 at 12:20pm

I agree, Grinning Cat.  Both parties are decaying almost to a point of no return to normalcy.
