I disagree. Practically everything in the world is going to offend somebody somewhere. People need to grow thicker skin and shut the hell up.

This is ridiculous because the building only looks like a swastika from an angle in which people aren't supposed to be looking at it. I think it's lame that pussies scour Google Earth looking for something to get all fired up about. **** them.

This has nothing to do with WWII. It has to do with people who love being offended about stupid ****, they actually enjoy being offended. The civil rights movement is not even a ******* comparison. Civil rights affects people's lives. A building that looks like a swastika on Google Earth is pretty unimportant. If it bugs you, don't ******* look at it.

You're an idiot. The issue for me is the design of the building in the first place and how this got through all the ******* contractors, bidders, engineers, and architects.

Practically, everyone should wear the same clothes, eat the same food, drive the same car.. blah blah blah. Its a matter of majority vs minority.

God at least, for the job you have at least 5 GCs, you have to remember that for ever section of a spec, theres at least 5 bidders, so theres 25, then you have the sub contractors for each field. I know i have 15 competetors that bid against me each time, and Im just 1 section of the spec. The amount of people that saw that was disgusting.

Unless they only bid out one buidling then did it a bunch of times (but very very very very very very very unlikely, like never heard of)

Well then we should obviously spend even more money on congressional inquiries, investigations, panels and committees for a building that was built 40 years ago. Now that'd be money well spent. Then we can spend $600,000 turning it into a heart or bunny or something that won't offend people who have nothing better to do than hang out and look at Google Earth looking for swastikas and penises.

Because there are a lot of strange ***** in government. Washington has Masonic symbols in a ton of its architecture. I guess no one was anticipating google earth?

When did I say to spent 600,000 dollars on it?

Did i say those people were right? No. I think theres other options, and if I want answers I will not go though a national congressional inquery.

And your pissing 600,000 dollars? IN 2003 the goverment lost 25 billion, yup lost it. Unused airlines tickets - 100 million (not to mention the additional 8 million spent on buying the same ticket twice)....


(most of the founders of the country were masonarys)
Yeah 600,000 is a big deal.

I have a really good example of more than that being spent. An Air Force site near me got two Jaguar crash/fire/rescue trucks a year or two ago. By local and non-local unbiased testing, neither of the trucks will pass acceptance tests. They basically won't behave as fire apparatus, just huge water carrying buses. To give you an idea of how much they cost, that $600k you just talked about? That would cover the cost of one of those trucks that are sitting in the motorpool broken down.

i doubt they saw a swastika when they built it, they probably saw 4 L shaped buildings with courtyards, where our service men would live

3% of the population is Jewish. That means at least 10 jews saw those plans, the definitly would have noticed the swastika. Thats playing just the percentages. If we include the fact that the majority of jews have higher educations then the percentage would increase. Assuming the people working with these projects had college educations. Someone noticed it was a ******* swastika.

Do you have any idea how many american working families will benefit from a $600k construction project?

who said americans would be working on it?
