Does anybody out there have any memory of the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY during the Carter Administration?
· I should leave that question out there a few days!
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..
At the time everybody thought it very appropriate…
The ‘Department of Energy’ was instituted on 8-4-1977
TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.
Pretty damn 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,
APPROXIMATELY 100,000 CONTRACT EMPLOYEES
LOOK AT THE JOB IT HAS DONE!
Ah, yes, good ole bureaucracy..
NOW under this new administration we are going to turn the Banking System,
The Health Care System,
and The Auto Industry over to
Are We Sane, Rational, Reasonable, Wise???
Help me here.
