Wanton Government Waste
 invisible
Description:
The purpose of this category is to bring attention to wasteful government spending by providing a brief description of the facts and figures and then bringing people to these sites by providing a Waymark of the location. Any government is fair play!
Expanded Description:
A waymark that may be placed in this category should be a site that is a good example of wasteful government spending. A waymark in this category may be the famous "Bridge to Nowhere" in Alaska, it may be a particularly hideous piece of art in a government building or it may be a facility that was built by the government and never used. It may be a particularly "out-of-place" government structure that was built with no regard for it's surroundings or it may be a structure built by the government for a particularly unbelievable government research project. One such site that comes to mind for me is location where the federal government closed a public campground in a national forest and turned it into a forest work camp for prisoners. They spent several hundred thousand dollars retrofitting this beautiful campground into a secure facility where they could feed, shower and house a couple hundred prisoners but only operated the location in that capacity for one summer before mothballing the operation and leaving the campground an eyesore and closed to the public.
