Just Wondering…

…how many more people will die at the gun-hands of psychos, like another one yesterday, before Congress will grow some balls and tell the NRA to go to hell? However, if Sandy Hook couldn’t do it, then there really isn’t much hope for morality and common sense in this country.

…when money won’t matter in elections? Every television station and channel should provide each candidate with free and equal airtime once a month and every newspaper and magazine should elucidate each candidate’s message, biography, and policies so there is diminished need for extravagant fund-raising. Money does not make a candidate better qualified or more intelligent.

…what is the point of campaign promises, handshakes, shoulder pattings, and baby holding when all is forgotten/dismissed once the election is over? It utterly amazes me that people 1)want desperately to believe every word they are hearing, when the candidates are merely spouting campaign strategy and have no intention or won’t be able to follow through with their rhetoric, and 2)are so surprised and disappointed when those promises are not kept immediately, if at all.

…how the United States government can spend billions each year helping other countries but cannot properly fund its inadequate infrastructure to at least: 1)provide/create jobs for all who are able to work; 2)give every student a quality education; 3)repair its plethora of deteriorating roads, bridges, tunnels, and railways; 4)take proper care of its veterans; and 5)hire hundreds of inspectors and attorneys to enforce its environmental and health laws and regulations.

…why it is taking so long to cure cancer? Think how long scientists have been at it. Think how far technology has progressed in the past 100 years.  We can send space probes and telescopes into the far reaches of the universe and discover extraordinary things.  We can power and build all sorts of weapons, appliances, and computers. We can improve life on earth with solar, wind, and fuel cell energy. But we cannot cure cancer or prevent anyone, even babies, from having it.

I was born/raised in Indiana and have lived in Massachusetts, Texas, and California. I have visited: most of the United States, British Columbia, Germany, Austria, and Costa Rica. My husband and I would like to visit England, Europe, and New Zealand and to take a train ride along the Canadian/American border.
