Picked this up off another forum. Interesting!
Absolutely The Funniest Joke Ever! . . . ON US
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 reason for 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 8-04-1977 TO LESSEN
OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL. HEY, PRETTY EFFICIENT, HUH?
AND NOW IT'S 2008, 31 YEARS LATER, AND THE BUDGET FOR
THIS NECESSARY DEPARTMENT IS AT $24.2 BILLION A YEAR, THEY
HAVE 16,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES, AND APPROXIMATELY 100,000
CONTRACT EMPLOYEES AND LOOK AT THE JOB THEY HAVE DONE!
THIS IS WHERE YOU SLAP YOUR FOREHEAD AND SAY 'WHAT WAS I THINKING?'
Ah yes, good ole bureaucracy. And now we are going to turn the banking system over to them? God Help us.
