Big Brother May Be Watching You, But Who is Watching Big Brother?

Follow the Sunlight, as well as the money trail, and you will find out.

The Sunlight Foundation has recently published a Defense Appropriations Earmark KML file for Google Earth to see where some of our tax dollars are going.

Per their website:

"The Sunlight Foundation was founded in January 2006 with the goal of using the revolutionary power of the Internet and new information technology to enable citizens to learn more about what Congress and their elected representatives are doing, and thus help reduce corruption, ensure greater transparency and accountability by government, and foster public trust in the vital institutions of democracy. We are unique in that technology and the power of the Internet are at the core of every one of our efforts."
