Uh, Anybody Notice That At The Planning Stage?


Someone looking at Google Earth discovered this 40 year old building owned by the military that kind of looks like a swastika. Uh, or exactly like a swastika.

Don't worry, your government will spend up to $600,000 to fix that little problem.

Isn't that the Bridgeport City Hall?

That's just terrific. Is the building still functional? Can they use it for its intended purposes? Why do they insist on throwing money away? What return are they getting? What will be the value realized from this expenditure? The President is not the biggest problem; it's those lifetime appointees operating with no restraint or supervision.

Isn't this a building on one of our AIR FORCE bases in California?

My favorite google earth picture is 2617 easton boulevard, des moines, iowa. Rotate it to where the top of the page is East (90 degrees to the left).

Hell anyone check the Denver airport lately? Creepy.
The story there is pretty deep....I mean literally....Google Denver Airport conspiracy theories.
Very dark.

Hmmm. Well, satellite pictures and maps of the Dallas Fort Worth area resemble a giant penis pointing west. Should we re-route all the interstates? I would not want anyone to actually think when looking at a map "Aha! I knew there was a coverup, and nobody wanted me to find out that DFW is actually a male body organ!!" And our kids...what about our kids?

9:02 You made me laugh on that one because I noticed that same thing way over over twenty years ago and wondered if anyone else ever saw it too.

Have we run this by our commissioners because $600K doesn't sound high enough to get this done.

I'd like to see a giant rendition of the little photo in the upper corner of this blog of the smilin' Barry and.........

By the way BG, we need an updated photo.

Ahhh...so that's where the Rhome Nazi Cam went off to.

I liked it when, "Navy officials said the buildings' shape was not noted until after the groundbreaking in 1967. Since it was not visible from the ground, officials decided not to make any changes."
Did NO ONE even look at a set of plans before the groundbreaking?

Until the Nazis used it, the swastika was used by MANY cultures throughout the past 3,000 years to represent life, sun, power, strength, and good luck.
"The word "swastika" comes from the Sanskrit svastika - "su" meaning "good," "asti" meaning "to be," and "ka" as a suffix."

How sad that the Nazis still have such power that a symbol the Nazis corrupted still haunts the human psyche.

And 1:14 besides plans, isn't there usually of model of the buildings made by the architect? Even back then?

That image was around long before the Nazis. The symbol is not evil if it's not being used or displayed in an evil context. In this case it's not. Do we ban all rainbows because it's a gay symbol? Do we ban all stars because it's a Wiccan symbol? Are the Dallas Cowboys worshipping Satan? They must be, with those stars on their helmets.

Wow. And yeah, to think it had a positive meaning before Hitler absconded w/it.

That kind of stuff (the positivity of the swastika turning negative) is all over the place. Christians see the cross as a symbol of Christianity, but the cross was typically a torturous way to kill someone. Now it's a symbol of peace. Kind of the opposite of the swastika.
