So…what’s worse a Navy barracks built in 1967 shaped in the form of a swastika or the fact that the Navy will spend $600,000 to change it? Personally in this economy, I would say spending $600,000 to be politically correct is a but much. Or many Uncle Sam thought that they would get sued by the Anti-Defamation League, and the legal fees would come close to $600,000 anyway. However, the Navy denied they were motivated out of fear of being sued.
So thanks to Google Earth, satellite pictures are now offending people and more money is being spent that never trickles down to ME, the common blogger, or YOU the average internet surfer just trying to put food on the freakin’ table.
According to Navy records, it was only until groundbreaking had begun did they realize how it would look. Internet conspiracy theorists have different theories of course, fueled by the Google Earth images that fell into the hands of Chicken Littles “The Sky is Falling!”
So for the record I believe it is a waste of money to change it. As for the responsibility of the Navy back in 1967- I have no idea what was going on then, or why they didn’t notice the blueprints, unless the original blue-print have more buildings in it.
This is another example of the use of Google Earth causing problems in “real life”. That being said, do you mean to tell me no one ever flew over the Navy barracks since 1967? Do you mean to tell me no one noticed this before just by walking around it or viewing it from a building? LaME….
