43% of your taxes pay for war
Now that your taxes have been filed, you are officially a sponsor of war. Forty-three cents out of every dollar you paid in 2007 goes for military spending (click to enlarge image):
In other words, we spend 43 cents to blow 'em up, and 1 penny to help 'em out later. Nice diplomacy, Condy.
Here's a thought: when you receive your bribecomplete waste of money we don't have economic stimulus check next month, please consider putting at least a part of it toward funding peaceby donating to the Friends Committee on National Legislation. (Yeah, the Quakers -- the same ones Cindy McCain steals from!)
