What started on DeviantART 2 years ago has turned into a monolith of data. I hope you can put it to good use.

This is the federal discretionary budget. Your federal income taxes at work. You paid for part of everything in this graph whether you like it or not.

Tips on reading this graph
:bulletblue: The file is 2 megs so it might be slow loading. Another viewer is here [link]
:bulletblue: Read the center circle first.
:bulletblue: The graph is split into military funding on the right side and non-military funding on the left side, unless otherwise noted
:bulletblue: The departments on the left side are in loose clockwise alphabetical order, e.g. Agriculture, Commerce, Education, Energy...etc.
:bulletblue: Don't forget about the national debt! Its the circle so big it doesn't even fit in the box.

...

and don't forget to check out the website... www.TheBudgetGraph.com

also, for those who are interested in Social security, Medicare, Unemployment, and all that other spending...
i made a graphic just for you
:peace:

What I find most frustrating is that the wars we are usually fighting are over the remaining land, water, and energy resources left. Yet, fighting these wars costs us unimaginable amounts of these ever depleting resources as well.

It's as if, after seeing a possible end to humanity in the distant future, our leaders have decided to RACE to that end with as much violence as possible.

There's no excuse for this. Hard times do not call for desperate measures -- that's a lazy and unimaginative view. Hard times demand cooperation.

This piece got lost in a shuffle a while ago - the scandal is old, but the revelations are still important...

This piece involves a comment from George W. Bush Jr. made during an interview with Wolf Blitzer on CNN, September 24, 2006.

Here is the full quote:
Bush Jr.: Yes, you see — you see it on TV, and that’s the power of an enemy that is willing to kill innocent people. But there’s also an unbelievable will and resiliency by the Iraqi people…. Admittedly, it seems like a decade ago. I like to tell people when the final history is written on Iraq, it will look like just a comma because there is — my point is, there’s a strong will for democracy...

Trying to dismissing the four years of death and destruction as 'just a comma' seems almost unbelievable. A few pundits later claimed that Bush was making a nod to his right-wing religious base by working from Gracie Allen's famous quip, "never place a period where God has placed a comma." -- but honestly, do you think 'Mr. is-our-children-learning' can be so eloquent, even to his own followers?

Bush doesn't speak in code - he only speaks of his indifference to the disaster that he created by being indifferent to the possible consequences of his actions in the first place.

Call your congressman/woman. Call your Senator. Demand an end to the war. Demand justice: impeach Bush.

So, maybe it was 3 tons of explosive, maybe it was 377 tons. Point is, under the Bush administration's micro-management, US forces moved in to secure Iraq's oil fields, and ignored securing the dangerous weapons from falling into the hands of terrorists. Call me crazy - but wasn't keeping dangerous weapons out of the hands of terrorists the reason Bush claimed we were invading iraq?

Of all the critics of Bush's war of choice, this event has been the most revealing of why Bush insisted on invading Iraq, and why everything has gone so horribly wrong.

To you Bush supporters who still champion the war effort for all the good it's done - it's high time you realized that Bush never shared your priorities. We live in fear not because of terrorists, but because of the Bush administration's handling of terrorist actions.

First: I love america - I love the people and got very good friends over there
Second: I hate the Bush-government. As most dA members stated, he's a monkey, true - so here is one of his ways to bring democracy into the world.

"Whenever Israel faces a public relations debacle such as the Intifada or international pressure to resolve the Israel-Palestine conflict, American Jewish organizations orchestrate this extravaganza called the 'new anti-Semitism.' The purpose is several-fold. First, it is to discredit any charges by claiming the person is an anti-Semite. It's to turn Jews into the victims, so that the victims are not the Palestinians any longer. As people like Abraham Foxman of the ADL put it, the Jews are being threatened by a new holocaust. It's a role reversal – the Jews are now the victims, not the Palestinians. So it serves the function of discrediting the people leveling the charge. It's no longer Israel that needs to leave the Occupied Territories; it's the Arabs who need to free themselves of the anti-Semitism."

(Norman G. Finkelstein)

This one is like a collage type thing that I put together about two weeks ago. The whole thing took about 36 hours to complete. (Not all at once mind!) Though I will say that tracing some of the original pictures can get kinda confusing. Most of them I had in various books/magazines/encyclopedias laying around the house. I am a war hawk I guess, I collect military stuff all the time. Hell, I have a camo vest and am soon going to get some camo pants! WOOT! Anyhoot, the illustrations are of modern military equipment which our armed forces (in the good 'ol US of A use every day!) ((R. Lee Ermy voice)) followed by estimated amount produced and estimated cost.

Please note that although I realise that to some I am advertising an estimated cost of our armed forces, this is not my intent. My intent with this piece was to share my love of military hardware, and the respect that comes with it. I grew up with this stuff, and thought that I would put all of them in one place with some technical information.

A possible Communism version may follow, it depends on how much information on the internet I can get, and whether or not I have some of the pictures already. I shall see.

Enjoy!
