O’s Joke of the Day

The Comedian

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 on 8-04-1977 TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.

Hey, pretty efficient, huh?????

ANDNOW IT’S 2011, 34+ 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 the Government.

ALL IN THE NAME OF CHANGE?

May God Help Us !!!
