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.

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

Ah, christmas...
Everyone is so happy and giving. Love is in the air...

Please don't mind me spoiling the Christmas spirit, but I really believe this is the perfect time of the year to think about others more than ourselves.

My latest art pack, AlternHATE, has been created with this specific idea on mind. Please take the time to see the works in full view and THINK before you decide to comment. All of the pieces showcased on this pack require a good amount of reviewing time so please do not say anything if you're not able to understand it.

Note: Works from this pack will be released randomly through the month of December and probably January. Although not registered, they're all protected by international copyright laws.

When undercover investigators made their way onto Chinese fur farms recently, they found that many animals are still alive and struggling desperately when workers flip them onto their backs or hang them up by their legs or tails to skin them. When workers on these farms begin to cut the skin and fur from an animal's leg, the free limbs kick and writhe. Workers stomp on the necks and heads of animals who struggle too hard to allow a clean cut. When the fur is finally peeled off over the animals' heads, their naked, bloody bodies are thrown onto a pile of those who have gone before them. Some are still alive, breathing in ragged gasps and blinking slowly. Some of the animals' hearts are still beating five to 10 minutes after they are skinned. One investigator recorded a skinned raccoon dog on the heap of carcasses who had enough strength to lift his bloodied head and stare into the camera.

Before they are skinned alive, animals are pulled from their cages and thrown to the ground; workers bludgeon them with metal rods or slam them on hard surfaces, causing broken bones and convulsions but not always immediate death. Animals watch helplessly as workers make their way down the row. Put yourself in their position...

Part III of the VoteAgainst series.

I have a crazy fetish for the number 3 evidently. At any rate, this is probably the most personal of the three, being as it hits rather close to home. =)

Please remember that beyond all the political beliefs I personally hold, this series is meant to make you think for yourself and then voice your opinion to make things change. Especially among the younger generation voter turnout is at a crazy low percentage of the population. So many people hate the way things are going right now, but if we all vote then things will change.

One of the better posters at all the useless pro- and anti-war protests....

All I can say is the world would be a much nicer place if people used guns only on themselves...

Cheers, Spliffy.

Rechts oder links, demonstranten oder bullen, arm oder reich... Sie werdens alle nie verstehen...

An older pic I took at a demonstration once... Just dropped into my hands while cleaning out my pics...
I don't think it needs much explanation, the symbolism is quite straight forward...

The fronts exist, no one is willing to budge or try to understand... It has alway been like this, it will always be like this... Sad but true...

Delirium is the youngest of the Endless.

She smells of sweat, sour wines, late nights, and leather.

Her realm is close, and can be visited; however, human minds were not made to comprehend her domain, and those few who have made the journey have been incapable of reporting more than the tiniest fragments. The poet Coleridge claimed to have known her intimately, but the man was an inveterate liar, and in this, as in so much, we must doubt his word.

Her appearance is the most variable of all the Endless, who, at best, are ideas cloaked in the semblance of flesh. She has a tendency to turn into butterflies or goldfish every now and then.

Delirium was once Delight, but that was long ago even as the Endless reckon, and only Delirium herself knows why she changed.

Through her mismatched eyes, one green and one blue, she sees the world in her own unique way.

-----------------------

Inspired by Neil Gaiman.

First in my long planned Endless series.

Still to come:
:: Dream
:: Death
:: Despair
:: Destiny
:: Desire
:: Destruction

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.

Creating yet another security agency on top of several other antiquated security agencies, and then under-funding that agency - is not safer. Dividing a nation from it's allies with diplomatic actions that only resemble an ape beating it's chest - is not safer. Ignoring the fact that we don't like - is not safer. Lying about the status of every situation to every decision maker and ally - is not safer. Creating a culture war within our nation rather then dealing with the problems that face us - is not safer. Smashing open a hornets nest of a nation without a plan - is not safer. Making promises to other nations with no intentions of keeping those promises - is not safer. Removing one hostile leader from power while creating an environment for several more to rise up - is not safer. Poking every enemy we have all at once - is not safer. Constantly making threats such as: "for us or against us" - is not safer. Never allowing this nation to investigate the real source of security and military failures - is not safer.
