This is one of the most effective pieces of political advocacy I’ve ever seen. Ben Cohen, the Ben of Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream, narrates a short Flash movie for TrueMajority.org, in which he explains — using Oreo cookies — the way that the federal budget is currently apportioned, and how little rearrangement would be necessary to renew all of America’s social programs. The examples are vivid and charming, and the logic is compelling.
The only thing I’d change is adding a fast-forward, pause and rewind button. I wanted to refer back to specific sections of the movie, and the “play all the way through” interface really frustrated me (just taking this screenshot was really hard).

This looks really cool. This looks exactly like what the EFF does when you register there as well.. they send you email alerts for when you voice can make a difference. They even have it set up where you don’t even need to visit their site, just reply to the email they send you. very cool! I encourage you to watch the flash movie and visit their site.. read up on their material and I think you’ll agree it’s worth your time to be a part of this. -Steve
