Tools You Can Use, Mr. Natural 

This site (Cost of Iraq War) is worth a visit, if your blood pressure medication has been adjusted. It shows comparisons of how much is spent on King George’s splendid little war in iWaq to what could be spent on lots of issues. For example, health insurance for kids: around 95 million kids could be insured for what iWaq is costing us. Or global hunger: we could have funded global hunger programs for 6 years for what iWaq is costing. Or, we could have ensured that every child in the world was given basic immunizations for 52 years for what iWaq is costing us.

There are also cool links to charts and graphs you can use in your communities, showing the local costs of the war, and ALSO the budget priorities of the GOP and how their proposed spending will impact your local community. I mean, if you’re laying the groundwork for coalition-building, or for GOTV and candidates in ’06, which I sure hope you are, these are great tools to use in letters, posters, flyers, etc.

There’s your culture of life, Bubba.
