Friday Open Thread: Balancing Acts, The People's Budget Edition

Via Chris Bowers of DailyKos regarding The People's Budget:

It's a great proposal, as it produces a federal surplus by 2021 without cutting services for the poor, the elderly and the middle-class. Instead, it basically just ends the wars, ends the Bush tax cuts, and reduces unemployment. Which, as we saw in the 1990's, is actually about all you need to do to balance the federal budget.

[Emphasis mine.]   How 'bout that...simple, straightforward, and easily accomplished.

No wonder the GOP and Tea "Party" don't like it.

Anywho - it's Friday, 22 April 2011, also known as "Earth Day." What have you been up to in order to do your part to save the planet?
