Fox News reports: At a time of record deficits, a new soccer field for detainees at Camp 6 in Guantanamo Bay is just getting the finishing touches -- at a cost of $750,000 to taxpayers.
This picture may not show the actual Gitmo soccer/futbol field, but I figure it gets the point across

I could save American taxpayers lots of money by telling them to use Amazon. They can buy a soccer ball and net for under $40

    Cruel to American Taxpayers
    That is outrageous and ridiculous. Who makes these stupid stupid decisions? And, don't tell me it is Obama. It's got to be someone further down the chain of idiots, probably not one that was elected, but appointed. I'm sure there are plenty of kids over the country that could enjoy a nice new soccer field. Extreme a$$ kissing looks like to me.

    It is a reward for answering questions. Those that don't answer get sent to a field full of these.

    Do you know how much it costs in human life to dig these up and ship them to Gitmo? The Border Patrol has Illegals do it.

    I'm trying to picture a penalty shoot-out.

    Automatic weapons or simple beheading?

    This is an old Muslim custom, and Obama is simply applying the customs of his forefathers. Everybody knows that under Sharia law, all prisons in Muslim countries have official, competition-sized soccer fields. It's like having a prayer rug.

    So Obama is a Muslim and that is why there is a soccer field in Gitmo?
  • Murph Joe Shw... 2012/02/28 22:22:06 (edited)
    Obama's father and his father's father, and his father's father's father were all Muslim. According to Islam, that makes Barack a Muslim. It's their rule, not mine. Take it up with them. The soccer field part is a joke. Go rent yourself a sense of humor.

    And yet there is no record supporting your statement.

    [..]My father was almost entirely absent from my childhood, having been divorced from my mother when I was 2 years old; in any event, although my father had been raised a Muslim, by the time he met my mother he was a confirmed atheist, thinking religion to be so much superstition.

    By that measure then Barack Obama would be ... an atheist?
  • Murph Joe Shw... 2012/02/28 22:58:39
    Fine, I'm not disagreeing with you, or anybody else on this topic. I'm repeating what his Muslim relatives say, and why would you trust Obama as a source of information on this or any other matter?
  • Joe Shw... Murph 2012/02/28 23:37:54

    I would trust his information on his own father before you or anyone else declaring him a Muslim. Which there is a lot of that misinformation going around since BEFORE the election.

  • Deep007 Joe Shw... 2012/02/29 02:47:30
    hey idiot..he's a MUSLIM. If his father is a Muslim he is a Muslim..His father nor he can renounce Islam or convert to another religious faith without becoming an 'apostate' and such would mean he would be marked for death. Since his father was fully embrace in Islamic Kenya and he is fully embraced by Muslim countries you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure it out he's just LYING as usual

    There are others who liked to quote scripture as well.

    It falls flat here, especially after your classic internet bravado quote up top. Good Job
  • Deep007 Joe Shw... 2012/02/29 17:55:14
    what?...you thought that was for you..heh heh heh...it was for the illumination of the difference between you and I. Nothing I post is for you. You are but a dog..a pig..an image to create solidity

    So that others may clearly SEE. Thank you for yer time

    The difference btween you and I was clearly displayed by your initial comment.
    It is the difference between night and day. Me (the day) brings light and illumination to a dialog, relevant points, facts and data.
    You (the night), brash, unrefined, belligerent, slothful and unable to converse in a dignified manner.
    In other words you showed you are an ignorant buffoon.
    The blogosphere thanks you for revealing yourself to be another Christian hypocrite.
