Re: Wasting more $$$ Any civilization that wastes funds it doesn't have, will eventually fail. I think it's nice that the US gov decided to spend billions of dollars to make us "feel safer", but we all know that it can't see everything, and never will be able to. Can we vote to shut it down when it fails to "stop everything" bad coming at us? Nope, this will be a permanent center, and an example of the government still growing, when we cannot maintain this, and we cannot afford this spending.
I wish more people would understand that this was done for commercial reasons, and not national security. It's all about "jobs", no matter if they are temp(construction of the building), or coming out of tax payer pockets(operations of this building).
Personally, working for the gov is like being a "career student", as you really never have to do "real work".
