And So I Go: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

>>The Jokes on Us, or What Happened While We the People were Sleeping!

Posted on: February 26, 2010

This is Absolutely The funniest joke ever…….

AND IT’S ON US

Let it sink in.

By the time you get to the bottom, you will understand!

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

08-04-1977
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!

It has not created one BTU, kilowatt, or single drop of oil.. The only energy produced by the Dept of Energy is the rapid flow of taxpayer dollars!

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 and

The Auto Industry over to the government.

ALL IN THE NAME OF CHANGE?

We the people have simply fallen asleep at the wheel, or better yet we’re to busy playing with our toys to notice the Federal Government was taking over. The founding fathers intended this country to be run “of the people” “for the people” “BY the people from the bottom up, somehow this took a 180 degree turn and now it’s “by big government.” Beau

Amen Beau. Asleep and playing with all our fancy new toys this past half century. We let this happen. Most people were just plain unaware. I personally have no excuse because I did see what was happening and other than a tiny protest now and then I was just too busy enjoying the good life. I didn’t do enough. Now my children and grandchildren will have to pay.

Was watching Glenn Beck yesterday and he had an audience and his last question and he told them to really think about it before they answered: “Are you willing to go back to living like your grandparents did and to cut government spending by 50% so we can get ourselves out of this?” They all raised their hands yes, but I don’t believe them. I don’t believe them because I don’t believe the American people, including the elderly, in fact probably more so for the elderly, truly understand what cutting back would entail. (I may blog on that one.) BB
