This documentary, in the form of a satellite map, enables you to zoom in on 35 taxpayer-funded public and private construction projects worldwide that will make you wonder at their audacity and cry due to the effect they have as congressional earmarks to get re-elected on the national debt. They include sites involving corporate welfare, enterprise zones, airport expansions, bridges to “Nowhere”, airports and harbors for “No One”, a slow moving 26-lane highway, NFL and Olympic stadiums, mass transit systems, nuclear facilities, a new Homeland Security headquarters, and military nation-building in Iraq and Afghanistan.
