Why do 70% of the people with AIDS around the world have no access to AIDS medication?

Why isn’t the political process taught before people go to college if it is taught at all? We wonder why young adults don’t vote and many don’t understand the process and many schools and people who know better actually work to spread the word. We need a “The political process” & “Why Voting Matters: For Dummies”.

Why haven’t we decided to properly fund education like we fund war? Despite clear evidence that Americans are falling behind other prosperous countries, Americans don’t seem to care about those who can’t afford to send children to better schools or move out of their current neighborhood.

Why did XXL magazine seriously ask people to start a free Lil’ Bootsie campaign but hasn’t started to charge people up about the injustices outside of the rap game like Oscar Grant? If it doesn’t make dollars, I guess it doesn’t make sense.

Why did Jon Stewart’s and Stephen Colbert’s event “The Rally to Restore Sanity” and “March to Keep Fear Alive” choose to bash both parties and the media like they are equal in their approach to politics. While I’m not saying the liberals/democrats are perfect, they use better methods of promoting their cause(s). In fact most would say the Liberals should be less timid and grow some guts. The two rallies tried to hold the two parties accountable (along with the media) but one party clearly uses fear more readily than the other and doesn’t rely on facts.

Why does it seem quite possible  that the Tea Party was started by Republicans to cover both the extremely radical points of some conservatives while keeping liberal Republicans involved and not alienated? Either that or it’s just spooky good how it worked out for them.

Why do women and men deal with each other have a child and see that significant other not step it up, complain about it and then have another with that same person?

Why do the Democrats consistently fail to show off their own accomplishments and let the Republicans control the atmosphere of the political campaigning and advertising in these elections? Scared to offend I tell you but it winds up hurting them because their own base doesn’t respect them as much.

Why has the dog fighting comments about Michael Vick quieted down now that he’s winning football games? People need to give other people second chances before it helps their team win! For those who did…thanks for talking and living what you say.

Why have five women been murdered in the Kensington section of Philadelphia with little to no reporting from the news? Could it be their occupation? The victims were women who engage in sex for money.Does that give someone a right to kill them? This is not a question I can accept a no answer!

Why do restaurants throw good food away instead of making efforts to donate them to the homeless shelters in the city?

Why isn’t the research for a cure for HIV being invested into more? A man was cured in 2008 and with more research we can narrow down what can be done to make this virus stop cold in its tracks.

    What responsibility does the government bare in funding education? Education is an individual investment and I think everyone is aware by now that the return on the education investment is not as quite appealing as the return gained by investors of Madoff ponzi scheme. What if I don’t want to send my child to a public school or private school, what then? Does going to school and earning a high school diploma or a Master degree mean that you are educated? Since the government funds education, shouldn’t it mandate how many hours parents spend with their children? The question you might want to ask yourself first is: Why has education in our country transformed to a business model, because quite frankly the premise of equating our youths is so they can lead our nation through a new century and a millennium. Think about the baby boomers and the impact they have made on our sovereignty (I am not quite sure if it was all good but nonetheless they had a major influence on our polity and majority of them were pot-smoking junkies with filthy rich parents). Please, whenever you get the chance pick up any book by Jonathan Kozol, and Douglass Massy for more info on the subject and make your own conclusion. As for war, as a veteran who has deployed in two so called “combats.” As for war it contributes our GDP: the sales of guns and ammunitions are in the billions. And to a degree the mass population is brain washed by media propaganda that dehumanizes the autonomy of innocent individuals and transforms them into “evil doers.” The one’s who profits from war are those politicians who play both sides of the aisle; a lobbyist and a concerned politian. At the end, corporations and politicians run the world and 80% of the population waste their time writing and asking such silly question(s). You know the answer, why ask? The day you understand the writings of Albert Camus especially the The Myth of Sisyphus, is the day you will come to terms with who you are as a person.
