The "whys" have it.

Why is it that President Bush's approval ratings directly reflect the price of gasoline. Is it a coincidence that gas is the lowest in the weeks going into the election? Is it also a coincidence that Bush has a lot of friends in the oil business - including family interest? I hear that the price is low because there have been no hurricanes this year. I don't remember hurricanes affecting the cost of fuel before last year (Katrina). Does anyone else remember this having a major effect on oil prices over the years?

Why do 90% of the people going 5 mph under the speed limit in the passing lane have a cell phone attached to their face?

Why is it that when taking a standardized test, one has to erase mistakes COMPLETELY or it will be scored incorrectly, but at the same time, one must fill in the circles COMPLETELY and very dark or the same test scanner will not be able to pick it up?

Why did my stat count drop when I wrote about Islam and violence? Why do people have a greater interest in my love life and/or my testicles? ;)

Why is it that when I am resolved to have a relaxing and uneventful upcoming weekend on Monday, by Friday it is filled up with undesirable tasks and events?

Why do I continue to write in this blog when I really don't have the time? :)

You have a lot of “why's” there.

I know this may make someone mad at me, but politicians remind me of gangs. The stronger the gang, the more control they have over a territory. To me as of late a president and his administration seems to be more about doing what’s best for them and not what's best for our country. All I have seen is mostly talking from our "representatives" and not enough action, unless it is in there favor.

I don't think that you can put honesty and politician in the same sentence, unless you write it like I have in this one.

You know why! You do! It's all a horrible conspiracy designed to completely baffle and confuse us so that we have no idea what's really going on! It's a fact!

I so feel your pain here, bro. Mrs.Write can't stand to sit still for even a moment on the weekend, nor any of the women in her family for that matter, so nearly every weekend is filled with all of the husbands being dragged someplace or another. We've taken to trying to at least get one of those draggins per weekend to include a location with couches and televisions tuned to sports.

Still, we lose a lot of relaxing time in driving back and forth...
