There is no entity out there as good at wasting money as the federal government. I think this speaks for itself, however, I’ll provide you with the most recent example that backs up what I’m saying here.
A report from Breitbart has revealed that there was an independent commission that was given the task of doing a full cost analysis of renaming Army posts that honor Confederate officers, and on Monday, its results found that the overall cost of doing this is $21 million.
Renaming a military base costs millions of dollars? This can’t be right. How is this possible? I just can’t even process that this much of our tax money, which is stripped from our paychecks is going toward something this dumb.
The Naming Commission released a final report that featured a 17-page list of assets that are tied to the Confederacy, which includes things like decals on the 300 recycling bins at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, all the way to a sign at a softball field at Fort Hood in the state of Texas.
Renaming these bases is pretty much par for the course when it comes to the liberal agenda, which is dedicated to erasing actual history and revising it in such a way that none of the offensive parts of it exist anymore.

Apparently, the folks behind this bright idea are unaware that remembering these parts of history are how we avoid making the same mistakes in the future. Guess they don’t mind if racism makes a comeback after all.

“As Breitbart News reported, the cost analysis for military bases follows moves by a congressionally appointed commission tasked with recommending new names for bases honoring Confederates. It unveiled a list of recommendations in May which, if adopted, would see Army bases named after women and black Americans for the first time,” the Breitbart report said.
There were a total of nine name change recommendations that were released for the initial rebranding of the bases. They are:
Fort Benning, Georgia — renamed Fort Moore after Lt. Gen. Hal and Julia Moore.
Fort Bragg, North Carolina — renamed Fort Liberty after the value of liberty.
Fort Gordon, Georgia — renamed Fort Eisenhower after General of the Army Dwight Eisenhower.
Fort A.P. Hill, Virginia — renamed Fort Walker after Dr. Mary Walker.
Fort Hood, Texas — renamed Fort Cavazos after Gen. Richard Cavazos.
Fort Lee, Virginia — renamed Fort Gregg-Adams after Lt. Gen. Arthur Gregg and Lt. Col. Charity Adams.
Fort Pickett, Virginia — renamed Fort Barfoot after Tech. Sgt. Van T. Barfoot.
Fort Polk, Louisiana — renamed Fort Johnson after Sgt. William Henry Johnson.
Fort Rucker, Alabama — renamed Fort Novosel after Chief Warrant Officer 4 Michael J. Novosel, Sr.
So the secretary of defense is also supposed to implement the commission’s plan for renaming the bases no later than Jan. 1, 2024. The only base that would not be named after an actual person is Fort Bragg, which is named after Confederate Gen. Braxton Bragg. This base is set to be called Fort Liberty.
What a waste of tax dollars.
