The thing about 'common sense' is that it is not very common... these days.
Last night, i watched a news show wherein the reporter was grilling a Canadian government official about why the military has so far neglected to protect the arctic regions.
The reporter and the government official were both very worried about ENEMIES invading Canada via icebergs and frozen tundra. I wanted to kill myself.
18 billion dollars plus a year for Canadian military which hires a fraction of the Canadian population vs less than 6 billion dollars for all educational needs in Canada which affects almost all Canadians.
