Death and Taxes: 2007 by mibi Death and Taxes: 2007 by mibi
:pointr:Full view is absolutely necessary!:pointl:

:bulletred::bulletred::bulletred::spotlight-left:Finally! Death and Taxes: 2007 is released! :spotlight-right::bulletred::bulletred::bulletred:

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:

Wow! I'm still amazed by all the research and detail that has gone into this... I like the percentage change as well, it helps put everything in perspective. Strong, effective and clean design as well :)

As in, the only surviving state (after the USSR died) with the ability to influence events or project power on a global scale incomparable with any other nation.

What's so funny about that?
