FWD: Biggest joke ever: the Dept. of Energy

FWD: Biggest joke ever: the Dept. of Energy

Friends: Can you imagine the savings if we got rid of the DOE??



Promise me something: That you will read this slowly.

Absolutely the funniest "joke" ever......." ON US !!!"
Let it sink in.
Quietly we go like Sheep to slaughter.

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????? HA HA HA!!


AND NOW IT ' S 2009, 32 YEARS LATER ... AND THE BUDGET FOR THIS


NECESSARY DEPARTMENT IS AT $24.2 BILLION A YEAR


THEY HAVE 16,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND APPROXIMATELY100,000 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 & the Auto Industry over to them?


God Help Us !!!

And again, we find that right wingers are about as dumb as a sack of rocks. At least they didn't use any racial slurs in this one.

Sadly, no president after Carter had any interest in lessening our dependence on oil, so the DOE became a friend to the oil industry instead of its nemesis as it was supposed to be. I tried to explain this to my dad using a simple illustration--If I create a paper/plastic/metal recycling center at my office, but everyone throws ALL their trash in it, it is going to be a big waste of time and money too. (this did happen) :(

Let's see: Carter - who has been proven right about the stupidity of our reliance on foreign oil - was castigated, mocked, made fun of and so on by rightwingtards forever up thru and including today. Sure the DOE has been kind of a bust, but whose fault is that?

Yet again, these folks ONLY want to poing fingers of blame at "evul libruls" as if it only the left who is wasteful, stupid, etc.

Hey: since Carter was in office, guess what wingtards? YOUR vaunted party has been in office MORE than the Democrats. WHO is responsible for the increase in size of the DOE? I don't think it's the ALL and only Democrats fault.

And yes, esp Darth Cheney made the DOE into a cheerleader for wastful spending on increased dependance on foreign oil (as Cheney laughed all the way to his offshore accounts bc, guess what??? HE got rich from all of that). Whose fault is that??? When Democrats protested how Cheney was handling this (secretly, as usual), we were resoundingly castigated by the right for even beginning to question his heinous practices.

NOW BHO has been in office for what? a little over 4 months? And these wingtards are suddenly awakening from their self-induced STUPOR and staring bitch and moan about the waste of the DOE????

It's like those idiot teabagging things they did in April: NOW you're protesting this??? NOW???

Sheesh. WILLFULLY ignorant is more the operative phrase.

Dear Anonymous #1. I resent being called as dumb as the GOP. My brother, Box of rocks goes to Dartmouth, so I understand the confusion.

Best,

Sack of Rocks.

The inversion here is dizzying. It was Reagan who tore the solar panels off the White House; it was Carter who tried to ensure that we'd kick the oil habit three decades ago. (Incidentally, that speech was apparently a big factor in costing him the election. Blame yourselves, America.)
