First off I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas. We did. Kids got way too much again, like always. We are very blessed when it comes to family.

Ok .. now the why part …
Why are there braille keys on drive-up ATMs? Why do we put turn signals in cars if people refuse to use them? Why does the battery on my cell phone die just when I need it most? Why do we sell cigarettes at gas stations where there are no smoking signs posted everywhere? Why do we feel, as a nation, that we need to give up rights and freedoms to feel more secure? Why to we elect the people we elect? Why do we believe what we see and hear on TV? Why is the sky blue? Why do we eat at McDonalds and wonder why we got fat? I have not eaten there since September. Don’t miss it at all. Why do we give crappy Christmas gifts? Why to we say we like the crappy gifts we receive? I actually got some cool gifts for Christmas and for my birthday (yesterday). On my days off, why can’t I sleep in? Why does my back hurt today? Why do we believe everything our teachers taught us (just got a new book called Lies My Teacher Told Me by James Loewen)? Why do we not care when people get caught in lies? Why do we continue to eat so much, get fat and still suffer from nutritional deficiencies? Why do we continue to let our government run this country into the ground? Why do we have to register our dogs, get driver licenses, get fishing licenses, get marriage licenses yet we can let anyone become a mommy or daddy? Why does gas change prices 3 times in one day? Why can’t my psychic friends give me the winning lottery numbers? Why doesn’t the spellchecker check to sea if eye used the write word? Why do they size men’s clothes with inches but women’s clothes have a number system that you have to use a chart to figure out? Why is a woman’s shoe size different than a mans? Why do we write this stuff and wonder why people want to read it?
