My Two Cents: Column o' questions…and no answers

I present, readers, a list of questions that have been running through my head as of late. Some are serious, others not so serious. Enjoy.

– Who else would like to see one of the booted-off contestants on the reality show “The Apprentice” ask Donald Trump what’s up with his hair? (Is it a really bad comb-over or a lousy rug?)

– What will be the next ill-advised PR move Michael Jackson makes during his trial on charges of child molestation?

– Does anyone else find the MTV show “Cribs” – where no-talent rappers who can barely speak intelligible English show off their huge mansions, fleets of cars and obscenely expensive jewelry – as annoying as I do?

– Isn’t it cool that America has two rovers on the surface of Mars?

– And speaking of other worlds, what planet is longshot Democratic presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich from?

– Did you know Sen. John Kerry, the front runner for the Democratic nomination for president, served in Vietnam? (Why would anyone know, what with him never talking about it?)

– How in the world did Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark become a general in the U.S. Army, what with the fact he’s been caught in numerous lies and can’t give a direct answer to a question?

– Who else thinks Sen. Hillary Clinton privately wants Bush to win this year’s presidential election so she can run for president in 2008?

– Who knew prior to the current Bush administration that there were tax-cut-and-spend conservatives?

– If the Patriot Act is as bad as some critics hysterically complain, how come not one example of someone’s civil liberties being taken away has been paraded in front of the media for all to see?

– Is anyone else as stunned – and sickened – as I am by the fact that our politicians can’t get on the same page when it comes to the nation’s ongoing war against Islamic terrorists who want to destroy America?

– Why don’t our leaders have the political will to seriously deal with this nation’s massive illegal immigration problem?

– Isn’t it pathetic that in the 21st century the top school official in Georgia wants the word “evolution” stricken from the curriculum because some parents in socially conservative areas object to it?

– When it comes to affirmative action, how come people of Asian descent aren’t considered minorities?

“My Two Cents” is a weekly column where the author gets in his two cents worth in spite of the old saying that you only get a penny for your thoughts.
