    Absolutely the funniest joke ever...ON US !!!



    • Let it sink in.
    • Quietly we go like sheep to slaughter.
    Does anybody out there have any memory of the reason given for



    the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY...during the Carter Administration?



    • Anybody? Anything? No?
    • Didn't think so!
    Bottom line...we've spent several hundred billion dollars in support of



    an agency...the reasonfor which not one person who reads this can remember.
    Ready???????
    It was very simple...and at the time everybody thought it very appropriate...




    The 'Department of Energy' was instituted on


    8-04-1977
    TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE



    ON FOREIGN OIL.


    Hey, pretty efficient, huh?????


    AND NOW IT'S 2009, 32 YEARS LATER ... AND THE BUDGET FOR THIS
    NECESSARY DEPARTMENT IS



    AT


    $24.2 BILLION A YEAR


    IT HAS

    • 16,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND APPROXIMATELY 100,000
    • CONTRACT EMPLOYEES
    AND LOOK AT THE JOB IT HAS DONE!

    THIS IS WHERE YOU



    SLAP YOUR FOREHEAD AND SAY


    'WHAT WAS I THINKING?'


    Ah, yes, good old bureaucracy...


    And NOW - we are going to turn the Banking System, Health Care & the


    Auto Industry over to government?


    May God Help Us !!!

    We need more people to start screaming for smaller, less intrusive, government. Let me keep my money, my property, and my way of living.
