    Wonder how much he donated to the obama campaign fund. One half million dollars to take a crap now that is living in high cotton. Just scroll down and look at the homes you can buy in that area for the same money. And you wonder why obama does not need to get a blank check.


    "Brawner Farm at the Manassas National Battlefield Park puts a high premium on its bathrooms. Under the supervision of the National Park Service, the government has spent over $578,000 to erect a “comfort station.”

    You read that correctly–$578,000–for a bathroom in a park.

    Replacing the standard, plastic portable waste receptacles previously in the park, one could imagine these tax dollars were on a hand-built, beautiful “comfort facility” for the fine visitors of this park, right?

    Well, no.

    same costs in the same zip code

    they probably spent $50k just writing and administering the contract and another $100k on making sure that Davis Bacon rules were followed before they even started to pay for anything

    and this is who some people think will be able to reduce healthcare costs...wow...
