Oreo Budget Priorities

Thanks to Shelia for sending me this from True Majority Action.

See how our budget stacks up using Oreos. It's outrageous. Click on "See What's Wrong" first, then play with the budget yourself.

Here's a quick bit from the cookie budget for you:
We spend $400 Billion on the Pentagon's annual budget. Education gets $3.5 billion. Our nearest "competitor," Russia, spends only $70 billion. China: $50 billion. Axis of Evil: Less than $10 billion combined.

Yet Bush is slashing education funding while raising the Pentagon's budget. Ignorance is the only way this can happen. It's time we paid attention.
