Why Are We so Idiotic?

Imagine if suddenly the astronomers discover a planet, within reaching distance, just like Earth. How excited everyone would be.

Sex Trumps the Donald

Donald Trump offers another speech full of lies and distortions to convince American voters that “crooked Hilary” is a “world-class liar.” Another male chauvinist beating his chest and pumping his fists to persuade a gullible populace, Wilhelm Reich’s “Little Man,” with the usual rhetoric, essentially declaring that I am your man – follow me and...
