Yes, money for weapons of mass destruction that'll never be used or 100 mil for the good of the people - who own all of that stuff to begin with - yeah, poor ol' America.

As I've said many-a-time, there's a lot I love about the ol' US of A, but this is the sort of shit that really gets on my tits about it.

There is some jaw-dropping art in that collection. At the very least hirez scans should be put online so people can at least see it.

That last gif is funny. That was my first thought when I saw the title, "Is the arc in there somewhere?"

@Cutter. America's a poor country. Where would we find money for that? Maybe Canada can help us foot the bill?

But the crown jewel of the collection is the 16,000 pieces of fine art the Army owns.

Don't they mean the US taxpayer owns?

The entire collection could be made accessible to the public, if the funds for a museum could be raised.

Are they joking?

However, there are major fundraising hurdles to jump before the museum can be built. The foundationís president recently told the Washington Post that it has raised $76 million of the $175 million required for the museum and predicts the museum could open in 2018. The plan is to build the museum at Fort Belvoir.

So the US Army's budget alone for 2013 was about 185 billion dollars. And they can't afford 100 million for this?!?! And yet they can waste billions on programs like Star Wars, the Crusader, et al. Well I suppose if the pigs in the MIC aren't getting their noses in the trough it can't be done, right? Now, this is criminal.
