Why do people retire? I think it feels good to exercise a skill, interact with other humans, and get paid. Why would I want to stop?
If this is a nation of sheeple, why are there millions in prison for disobeying authority? Why do drivers risk speeding tickets? Looks to me like a nation of scofflaws.
Why do people believe? All belief systems are human inventions, and as such they lack physical “proof.” Ask me why I don’t “believe” in God or government and I have to say it’s for the same reason I don’t believe in Bigfoot. I’ve never seen one.
Why do people vote? It is clearly making things worse. And the more people gripe about government, the more brutishly powerful it becomes. Vexing.
Why do some people find learning exciting, and others hiss at it like a vampire in front of a cross?
Why do some bloggers use white letters on a black page? And why do some autocadders do likewise with white lines on a black screen? I find it unnatural and difficult to read.
What is the big deal with FaceBook? It just seems like a restricted-access blog to me. I find it incomprehensible and my attempt to learn about it was met with one thousand prying questions, to which I made bullshit answers. I never did figure out how to “use” FaceBook, which makes me feel really stupid. I mean, every goddamn four-year-old on this planet has a FaceBook “page”, or whatever you call it.
Why do some bloggers blather on and fucking on, and others leave you wishing they were more wordy?
Obama says, “I’ll keep the free shit coming. Romney won’t.”
Romney says, well, I don’t really know what he says. He’s a little short on table-thumping specifics.
“…the former Massachusetts governor is a social conservative and social moderate, a right-wing conspiracy theorist and promoter of political compromise.”
Guess who’s gonna “win”? And tell me again why it matters.

Here Larken Rose makes a point that I’ve wondered about for years. Why indeed does Congress farm out its counterfeiting duties?
My thinking is, if Congress cut out the middleman, they could counterfeit their brains out, interest free, shoot-the-works. Imagine that, no more mega-trillion-dollar “national debt.” No more hand-wringing pundits producing pie-charts showing that the national debt would be so much less if only so-and-so would do this-or-that. Want to launch another expensive war, throw some “stimulus” out there, or promise a voting block some cool swag? Fuckin’ print it yourself! Amazing.
