What Bush Hath Wrought
The Atlantic has published a graphic illustrating some of the changes that have taken place in the US over the course of the Bush regime - everything from population to per capita hours of video games played to the street price of cocaine. Granted, correlation is not causation, and it's hardly as if Bush is solely responsible for everything that's gone on in the US in the last 8 years. But one thing that does jump out from these graphics is that the US is a considerably more militarized society than it was before Bush took office.
Draw your own conclusions.
