At a time of record deficits, a new soccer field for detainees at Camp 6 in Guantanamo Bay is just getting the finishing touches — at a cost of $750,000 to taxpayers.

And that’s not just the insanity of wasting $750 thousand dollars on a ridiculous soccer field, but one built in a foreign country – Cuba. This is the same Guantanamo Bay which the Democrats have pouned their little fist over for years, demanding it be closed.
And not just the $750 thousand dollars soccer field which American taxpayers are stuck paying for, but this is still during one of the worst economy’s in decades, with millions of Americans looking for descent employment and gas prices continuing to rise astronomically.
But the insanity of providing this $750 thousand dollars soccer field for “detained terrorist”. Is this how we want our tax money spent?
Who’s running the country? Who makes these asinine decisions?
I’m sure if the dollar trail was followed, we’d see friends of government employees (Congressional, Senators, staff… Presidential) were the people making money off the taxpayer funded, terrorist provided, top of the line soccer field.
This is simply “government as usual” and the usual is a government running over taxpayers and then demanding those paying the most, pay even more of “their fair share”. Insanity.
