ENERGY DEPARTMENT FOUNDED UNDER CARTER - FOR WHAT?
Does anybody out there have any memory of the reason given for the establishment Of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY during the Carter Administration?
Didn't think so!
Bottom line ...
We've spent several hundred billion dollars
In support of an agency ...the reason
For which not one person who reads
This can remember.
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 we are no less dependent are we?
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_ on Obama's moronic urging we are going to turn The Banking System, Health Care & The Auto Industry over to government ALL IN THE NAME OF his CHANGE?
May God Help Us !!!
