Who would have thought that Google Maps would cost the American taxpayers more than $600,000. This story is true.
When builders of the Coronado Naval Amphibious Base in San Diego planned this complex in 1967, satellite imagery was probably the furthest thing from their minds. But in 2007 Google Earth sleuths found that four unconnected buildings on the base formed an unfortunate shape when viewed from above: a swastika. The Navy says it's spending more than $600,000 to mask the shape. "We don't want to be associated with something as symbolic and hateful as a swastika," a spokesman said.
You are going to spend more than $600,000 dollars of our money because it looks like a swastika from outer space!!?!?! Who cares?! Does it have a swastika on the front of the building?? Would anyone really go to Google Maps, see this complex and think that the government is supportive of Nazism? Yeah you are right, lets spend that money so the martians don't think that Hitler rules the world. Thank god for smart investments by our government.
