    Seems to me you are the one that has the issue, by calling them MASTERS. Do you look at it as a master/slave relationship?

    Obama is president, not the emperor. Therefore he is not the United States government. Besides, the architects were probably the ones who inflated the price.

    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    LOL...What a difference a year and $300 million makes...

    U.S. Embassy in Iraq Largest, Most Expensive Ever

    After much delay the United States opened its new $700 million embassy in Iraq on Monday, inaugurating the largest — and most expensive — embassy ever built.
