Scientists and philosophers argue that human beings are little more than puppets of their biochemistry. Here's why they're wrong.

The mind has many thoughts that differs from individual to individual. In the mind of a Conservative they base many issues or decisions off of morals. In comparison, the Liberals base the issues or decisions off of social experiences.

Young Guns gear up for next fight

Young Guns gear up for next fight | Gun Control | Scoop.it
The Republican “Young Guns” are ready to rule, if they get the chance. Since they first got the name seven years ago, allies and enemies of Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan and Kevin McCarthy are now beginning to jockey to prepare for potential changes at the top of the Republican power structure in the House. Though publicly Speaker John Boehner...

Speaker John Boehner and his other Republican leaders of the House, dubbed the "Young Guns", plan to revamp the party power structure. Eric Cantor, the Majority Leader, is from Virginia, and he is the next most powerful man in the House. The right respects him as he's taken serious action on fiscal matters, yet has garnered criticism from the party as well. Meanwhile, McCarthy, the Majority whip, is an affable leader, able to unite a divided GOP, and is confident that the party is headed to a more effective future. The last of the three, Paul Ryan, has risen the fastest, planning to either lead the Ways and Means Committee or run for the presidency in 2016. He's young, motivated, and well known, which should give him a strong support base against opponents. These "Young Guns" pledge loyalty to Boehner, and are willing to serve as long as Boehner remains speaker.

The article talks about the future of these 3 promising republicans who are referred to as the Young Guns. Gives insight to the future of the 3 and what the possibilities of their next move  may be . If Boehner leaves office, Contor is a shoe in for the Speaker spot. Kevin McCarthy may become majority leader and Paul Ryan may take the Chair of the Ways and Means Committee or take a run for president. This article gives a great look at their current positions in the ranks of the GOP and gives an excellent and accurate look of what the future for these young men holds.

I believe that the US should try to keep a neutral stance in the situation and continue to act as a mediator. A strong interference by pushing for one side or by using military force could easily sway public opinion against the US and leave them with enemies. This might also result in a severe case of public disorder in Ukraine or might incite Russia to outright invade. By continuing to stay neutral, the US will avoid a major crisis.

Weiyi Wang's curator insight, March 10, 2014 1:27 AM

Based on the strict cultural and political divide of the eastern and western portions of Ukraine, conflicts like these are to be expected. Foreign meddling is what caused the conflict in the first place, so it probably won't be the solution. US intervention would put even greater strain on the US-Russia relationship, and will probably be unnecessary seeing how the Yanukovych has not used military force against the protesters as of yet. Since the deal with the EU was so important both economically and politically, the unrest was inevitable, but will probably play out without instigating a civil war.

Colin Shi's curator insight, March 10, 2014 2:35 AM

This article has shed light on the historical and cultural context that served as the backdrop of this current conflict. The US has been put in a rather difficult situation: to either intervene on the West's behalf to protect its own interests while risking sour foreign relations and perhaps outright conflict with Russia, or to watch Russia attempt to regain its fallen empire, as Russia would gain valuable natural resources and a strategic coastline along the Black Sea. Thus, I believe that to best preserve US intentions, the US must not immediately deploy troops into this hotly-contested nation, nor should it merely watch the situation unfold. Through the UN, NATO, or other global and western alliances, the US should hope to limit Russian encroachment through sanctions, compromises, or treaties. Seeing the obvious dichotomy of the nation, I don't mind seeing Ukraine split, an action that would reduce tensions in either half. Military force should be used only as a last resort in case the established agreements are violated.

2014 Elections: Poll shows incumbents in trouble

2014 Elections: Poll shows incumbents in trouble | Gun Control | Scoop.it
While an anti-incumbent attitude is prevalent among Americans, Republicans have the upper-hand in the midterm Senate elections, according to a new poll. In the 34 states with Senate elections this fall, 50 percent of voters favor Republicans while 42 favor Democrats, according to a Washington Post-ABC poll released Tuesday. In the House, voters were...

I really feel that the people are tired of gridlock. Therefore, people are blaming the President and the democratic party.
