Asking Why, Not Expecting Answers

I’m asking why, not expecting answers. I’m Ethan Holmes. Yes, I’m weird. Yes, I have strange thoughts running through my head. These are things that cross my brain when the traffic in my head slows down.

Why does it take a hacksaw, a drill gun, a utility knife and a pair of pliers to get into modern day packaging?

Why do shoes made for a dollar in Korea or China and consisting of nothing more than a piece of rubber, a piece of foam and two shoelaces cost $150?

Why is rain a big media event in Phoenix?

Why do most, if not all prescription medications have many more dangerous side effects than the symptoms your ‘doctor’ is trying to help you hide?

Why are some women’s clothes marked as size ZERO? Does that mean you’re paying for nothing?

Why do people swear in front of God, Church, family and friends to stay together ’till death do you part’ and then get a divorce? Shouldn’t you just be allowed to legally kill each other?

Why is going without underwear called ‘going commando’? Is the military unable to afford underwear for the soldiers?

Why do all the plants in your garden become stunted and die due to a myriad of diseases and bugs, yet the weeds grow to four feet?

Why do kids learn to ride skateboards and spend the next five years trying to jump off of them and break something?

Why do people pay for someone to tie a rubber rope around their ankles and shove them off a bridge?

Why do people allow themselves to be overcharged by a major coffee chain for a 16 oz. drink only to be handed a cup with 8 oz. of fluid in it?

Last but not least, I’m asking why is it that there are nearly 320 million people in this country and the best you could come up with for President was the two clowns currently gnawing at each other?
