Things I Don't Get, Part 1

1. If our taxes are higher than ever, how come our public schools, our roads, our senses of personal safety and security (and those of our children and grandchildren) are worse than ever?

2. Talking about schools, when and how did we come to accept the fact that teachers must buy - out of their own pockets - paper, pencils and other supplies for their students?

3. Talking about reaching into our pockets, when and how did we come to accept the fact that parents and other loved ones of our military members must buy - out of their own pockets - bullet-proof vests and other protective gear for our soldiers and Marines?

4. Why can't you just hook up your computer to the wire coming out of the wall and get to the Internet - how in the world did all of these settings, devices and other complications come about?

Yeah, well. I can at least rationalize the inking behind the first four. But I am stumped on number five.
