Obscene waste

Re: ‘Billion-dollar boondoggle, again,’ Greg Weston, May 30, 2010.

After the colossal waste of building Mirabel International Airport 1 and implementing the federal gun registry comes more runaway profligacy, yet another “billion-dollar boondoggle” -- hosting back-to-back international summits.

Surely, there are anti-porn laws on the books that would prevent and punish this kind of obscene waste of resources and capital -- especially when our treasury is already bare and mind-boggling sums again egregiously frittered away must be borrowed from lenders.

(Wasting taxpayer cash is definitely obscene.)
