Oreo Cookies and Common Sense

Every unit of government in America decides each year what the priorities are by passing a budget and every year reporters get so confused they have a hard time explaining budgets to the public. All of us activist Dems have known for some time now that our national priorities are way out of whack, but how do you explain that in simple terms.

If you helped to build an ice cream company called Ben and Jerry's maybe you do it with Oreo cookies. If you haven't seen Ben Cohen's explanation of our national budget done with Oreo cookies, you need to check this out. Even economic dunderheads will get this and it's a great way to explain our nation's mess to kids too. Check out this link:

IMHO it is brilliant.
