    This would be funny if it weren’t so serious.





    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.


    We've spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency the reason for which not one person who reads this can remember. (Except good ol' Jimmy)


    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.


    AND NOW ITS 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?'


    And now we are going to turn the Banking and Manufacturing system over to them?



    Incredible!
