Lots of things to wonder about
Do you wonder how Walmart in so short a time became bigger than Home Depot, Kroger, Target, Sears, Costco and Kmart combined?
In contrast, do you wonder why the Department of Energy, created in 1977 to lessen our dependency on foreign oil, has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year, and yet we import more oil than ever before?
Do you wonder why the president of the United States and all 535 voting members of the legislature send billions of dollars to Haiti, Chile, Turkey and Pakistan, while here in America we have elderly without medical, homeless without shelter, children going hungry?
Do you wonder what tune Nero was fiddling ‘midst the burning of Rome'? Oops, how'd that get in here?
