I have always been a person who is constantly saying “Why?” Here are some whys that have been spewing off the top of my head lately. :) They are too small for an entire post so I am just going to throw it out here and in no particular order:
- Why do fifteen percent of the population think they are in the top 1% ?– So there are fifty times more people worried that their taxes will go up if President Obama is re-elected. We all want to believe that we are somehow special but 1/6 of the population just won’t fit in the one percent tub. No way, no how…..
- Why don’t people understand that if you want to live like a Republican you must vote like a Democrat? – It is a known fact that if you had invested $10,000 in only Republican administrations for the last eighty years it would now be worth $11,733. If you had invested in only Democratic administrations it would be worth $300,671! (source Wolfram Blog : Stock Market Returns by Presidential Party.) So why do all the money hungry folks continue to align with the Republican party?
- Why do so many women seem to want to be six inches taller than the height God gave them? –This trend toward wearing six-inch heels really confuses me. I believe that women have come a long ways in the past few decades. They have asserted themselves in the business world. They are now the primary earner in many families. There are now many shows on TV where they are in charge now. You certainly didn’t see that even a decade ago. So why do so many women continue to fall in line with the latest fads no matter how absurd they seem to be? I want to predict a huge increase in demand for podiatrists in the future to treat all those future bunions out there.
- The major focus of the country is currently on unemployment. It seems to be driving much of this political season. If you believe the hype everyone is either unemployed or underemployed in this country. But what happened this week seems to directly counter that belief. Across the country were millions of people standing hours in lines to pluck down up to $600 for a new iPhone5? It is obvious that not everyone has been affected by the economic downturn. Many if not most of the people in these long lines already have an iPhone 4 that is still very functional yet they have enough disposable income to update to the latest thing. I just don’t understand it?? But then again in reality only one out of every twelve of us can’t find a job….
