Death and Taxes 2012 is hear, and published by Amazon/Seth Godin!

First of all, let me say thank you to everony who supported this project in the past.  I think it may reach a critical mass this time, with your help.

So Seth Godin has this publishing deal with Amazon called The Domino Project, and he was gracious enough to take a flyer on this Death and Taxes thing and publish it.  That is awesome and the poster may get in front of many more eyeballs than my own futile efforts can accomplish.

This also means that I (and my mom) no longer do the shipping, as it’s all done by Amazon.  I know many of you will appreciate that.

So this is our best chance to push this poster past the tipping point and into the public consciousness.  Think of the debates it will settle (and start).  You know the insight and perspective the poster provides, lets get the rest of America to know that too.

Here are a four ways that you can support this project.

1. Purchase the poster from Amazon.  They price it lower than I do!
2. Write a review of the poster on Amazon. Amazon products live and die on reviews, you know how awesome the poster is, let others know too.
3. Share the Death and Taxes site on twitter, facebook, google plus, telephone, telegraph, carrier pigeon.  Of course I will be spreading the word, but its more authentic when it comes from customers.
4. Like the Death and Taxes facebook page.  You’re probably on facebook now!

The poster is particularly enlightening this year.  Military spending is down almost across the board.  That must defy the laws of governmental physics.  It’s mostly the OCO (current wars) that are being cut.  The DoD propper is up 1%.  Belt tightening else where too, including NASA (bye bye space operations), Justice Dept, Health, and Homeland Security.  Big winners?  Education, Transportation, the IRS, and renewable energy.

In the bottom left I have included some circles for comparison to non-US budget figures.  Like the world wide video game market, Bill Gates net worth, cost to eradicate world hunger, etc.
Thanks everyone, for your support!
