Does anyone 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. And if you do remember, you are the exception, not the norm.

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 August 4, 1977...now get this...TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.

Hey, pretty efficient, right?

AND NOW IT'S 2008, 31 YEARS LATER, SEVERAL ADMINISTRATIONS (BOTH REPUBLICRAT AND DEMOBLICAN) 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 'department' has its fingers (and the inevitable extra costs, taxes, regulations and red tape that come with them) in every form of energy you can think of! And the topper is that we are as dependent on foreign oil as we were in the late '70's. Even more so with a ban on construction of new refineries, and limits on offshore drilling, brought to us by the enviro-nazis who worship Mother Gaia.

THIS IS WHERE YOU SLAP YOUR FOREHEAD AND SAY 'WHAT WAS I THINKING?'

Ah yes, good ole bureaucracy. It is what the federal government is best at. And now we are going to turn the banking system over to them?

Like sheep to the slaughter...
