If a nation cares more about money than human lives...

...they will lose more human lives.

It is talk of insanity.

Disrespect for the lives of people, old or young, will not go unpunished. History shows us examples from WWI and the loss of millions of lives.

This sort of discussion should not be tolerated in our leaders.

Just my opinion.

Of course, there are great people with souls in it - but we - they - will become the minority under the growing rush to profit, greed, power and hypocrisy.

We are at one of those tipping points, for sure - a historical tipping point. We are a relatively young country - this will be a severe growing pain.

Suffice to say I am utterly disgusted.
