  1. I only care about the innocent babies. The politics have always been bad but, not it’s blatant Nazism. Too bad. I don’t even look at it anymore. Too masochostic. The rich have decided there isn’t enough room for all of us so, they are killing us for money. The joke on them, is that the planet will not support any life at all, in the next ten years at the rate they are accelerating things
