    She makes a very interesting point there – the reference to how the country was made by creative entrepreneurs. Perhaps the people need to learn that a businessman is going to focus on cash flows. You cannot expect him to run the country. And, that’s the fault with the American political system. It’s, after all, these moneybags who rule the country indirectly through bankrolling of political parties. It promotes a politician-businessman nexus. No wonder such decisions get made – It hasn’t yet been proved dangerous… and the like. This is sad, of course!
