  1. EXCELLENT!! I posted on fb, and emailed 50 Georgia voters so they can understand just how big the full time Executive Branch is. Excellent work.

  2. EXCELLENT! I reposted on fb and emailed 50 Georgia voters so they can understand just how big the Executive Branch has become. Thanks for making the graphical depiction.

  3. Thanks for the love!

    PS, to any and all: any feedback, especially on the graphic design, is welcome.
    If it’s popular, there will be an FY 15 version.

    And now I’m looking for ideas for my next graphic.
