Some things I don't Understand

Things I don’t understand

If the IPod is so totally cool (and it is), why can’t they put a radio in there too? I mean, I couldn’t give a rat’s ass about watching TV on a 2x2 screen. But it would be nice to have a radio option for when my playlist gets tired.

If you own a bank that has given out X number of variable interest rate loans only to find out 2 years later that 80% of those loans are going into default because the rate jumped up past what your borrowers can afford and now you’re looking at a round of foreclosures and multi-billion dollar write-offs, wouldn’t it make more sense to amend those mortgage contracts to lower the rate, give grace periods, etc so that your borrowers continue to pay and you continue to make money?

If you found someone dead on their apartment floor, even though they were famous, wouldn’t you immediately call police instead of calling another pseudo-celeb for advice?


If you were facing the gravest economic crisis in recent memory, fueled by the twin engines of out of control federal deficits and out of control housing gambling, would your first (and only) solution be to immediately give every American a $600 check? Wouldn’t you want to do something more, address the root causes? Hello? GOP? Dems? Anyone driving this bus?
