Children go through a period of asking why, usually between the ages of 3 and 8. I am sure you have all heard the questions, "Why does it rain?" "Do fish go to heaven too?" " Why is broccoli green?" "How come I can read and that boy can't read?" "How come I have to go to bed?" "Are there any blue frogs?" "Is this made of atoms too?" "Why can't everyone go to homeschool?"

For some reason all too often adults quit asking the questions! Why? Is it because we are a nation of lemmings or nation of fools or a nation in which our public schools have taught us never to question authority?

This past election I don't think people asked enough questions and right now I do not think people are asking enough questions. Below I am just scratching the surface of all the questions I have.

Why do we need health care reform now?
Is the problem really the insurance companies or the current set of laws that restrict medical practice and insurance companies?
Why are our legislators and presidents spending so much money?
Does giving welfare recipients 200 dollars a piece for each child right now make sense when we don't have the money? Why will my children have to pay back this money as an adult?
Why do the unions want to get rid of the secret ballot?
Why won't Obama let us have access to any of his college records?
Why are union people being bussed in to town hall meetings?
Why is the media and the left attacking Sarah Palin?
Is Sarah Palin a threat or a whack job?
How will the US pay it's medicare and pension obligations?
Why is the US building interment camps?
Insurance companies are said to be backing the protests against health care I hear that but where is the proof?
Why are drug companies agreeing to support the Obama healthcare plan are they getting anything out of it?
How come the President has so many Czars?
Are the Czars allowed under our Constitution?
Why won't the Congressmen read the Bills?
Why must you show a picture ID to get into a town hall meeting but not to vote?
Why is it okay for people on the left to protest but not people on the right?
Why is the government creating more programs when we do not have any money to do it?
Why are people willing to blame Bush and the Republicans and not actually look at the facts?
Why won't Democrats take responsibility for their part in the disaster?
Why won't Republicans take responsibility for their disaster?
How come reducing spending is never a part of the solution?
How come reducing government is never part of the solution?
Why does our government want to control our food and energy supply? Is it so they can control the people?
How come people in this country have decided the government can take back care of them better then themselves?
Why are people calling Obama a fascist, a marxist or a communist? Do I know what those words mean? Could they be right?

Money does not grow on trees. The only way to reduce our budgets and pay off our debts is to tax us to death or cut spending, I prefer the later.

Ask questions, get answers and object to anything that will harm your family, your Country and our children's future. Never assume you are being told the truth.

Spelling and grammar errors as well as typos are left as an exercise for my readers.

Quotes of the Day - “He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever” - Chinese Proverb

"I cannot accept, your canon that we are to judge pope and king unlike other men, with a favorable presumption that they do no wrong. If there is any presumption, it is the other way against holders of power ... Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Lord Acton

Our government is asking us not to question. Are you going to be a fool for five minutes or a fool forever?
