Chaos in the Primaries

Thomas Sowell

Painful as it is to realize that both the Democrats and the Republicans will still be holding their primaries a year from now, that is one of the high prices we pay for democracy.

Etiquette Versus Annihilation

Recent statements from United Nations officials, that Iran is already blocking their existing efforts to keep track of what is going on in their nuclear program, should tell anyone who does not already know it that any agreement with Iran will be utterly worthless in practice.

All these are unhealthy means to handle anger. What happens when I get angry? Your heart rate, arterial tension, and testosterone production increases, cortisol (stress hormone) decreases, and the left hemisphere
