Newly developed part of our brains,"The Prefrontal Cortex". Rationalism, pragmatism, empathy, and ability to see oneself objectively.

Attached is a picture of an Excel spreadsheet that lists the various abilities that reside in the Prefrontal Cortex. I acquired these from a book called "Change Your Brain, Change Your Life", by Daniel Amen. Ther work behind these characteristic functions of the prefrontal cortex come from over 800,000 stimulus and response method with individuals whom had electrodes attached to the various regions of the brain to determine where activity occurred when stimulus that reveals empathy, as an example, takes place in. These are those functions of the prefrontal cortex.&nbs

Obama's latest attack on woman

Attorney General Eric Holder will be announcing that Toyota will have to pay over a billion dollars on the problems they had with their cars. Do you think he will do that to General Motors too?

Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine opposes rightwing takeover of Ukraine government

The Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine, despite its political opposition to exiled President Yanakovych, defends his constitutional right to office and the use of legal means to change political leadership.

So, tell me again, President Obama, why we are embracing the far right and Neo-Nazis in Ukraine....your Administration's stance does not make sense, unless it too is fascistic.
