More Frankenstein Government

Got this in an email from an old friend. He is part of the lunatic fringe that we used to refer to as "patriots."


Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle
of a desert. Congress said, "Someone may steal from it at night." So they
created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.

Then Congress said, "How does the watchman do his job without
instruction?" So they created a planning department and hired two people,
one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.

Then Congress said, "How will we know the night watchman is doing the
tasks correctly?" So they created a Quality Control department and hired
two people, one to do the studies and one to write the reports.

Then Congress said, "How are these people going to get paid?" So they
created the following positions, a time keeper, and a payroll officer,
then hired two people.

Then Congress said, "Who will be accountable for all of these people?"
So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an
Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal
Secretary
.

Then Congress said, "We have had this command in operation for one Year
and we are $18,000 over budget, we must cutback overall cost."

So they laid off the night watchman.
NOW slowly, let it sink in. Quietly, we go like sheep to slaughter.
Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the
DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY.... during the Carter Administration? 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???

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 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 SYSTEM, HEALTH CARE, AND
THE AUTO INDUSTRY OVER TO THE SAME GOVERNMENT? HELLOOO!

Worth noting here. There is no accountability as a component in project development or management Frankenstein style. Once these useless agencies are created-they are never reviewed in terms of goals or accomplishments, they are superior in terms of wasting a shitload of money. The Dept. of Energy is responsible for cleaning up Superfund sites. The number one Superfund site in the U.S. was the giant contaminated copper pit in Butte, Mt. My hometown. After studying the problem, the DOE simply walked away. Sweet.

I don't think its come to that yet, Jim. But I am all for voting everyone of those self and elite serving folks out. Anyone with an incumbent by their name. Spare Paul and Bachmann. She's easy on the eyes, and crazy.

DaCodger said...

Sorry to disagree, but it is the Environmental Protection Agency responsible for $uperfund sites. Blame them for Butte and Anaconda and... Same premise though.

Cliff Kincaid reports on the American Roman Hierarchy backing the passage of the “Health Reform Bill” that now insures every illegal Roman Catholic Latino alien within the borders of the U.S. Rome completely supports this lawlessness and essential high treason against every American citizen. CNN’s Lou Dobbs reported Rome’s backing of the illegal Roman Catholic Latino invasion and subsequently was shot at by potential assassins while home in New Jersey. Rome is breaking the American Middle Class, destroying the White-raced American peoples, and now the very nation itself while nobody in Washington has the faith and courage to stand up to these papal taskmasters. Thus it is Rome using its Congress to drive all American Whites to political and financial desperation that will end in Neo-Con Jesuit Fascism! Read Cliff’s article here:

Update: More evidence of Rome’s support of Roman Catholic Papal Dame Nancy Pelosi’s 2000-page, $1 trillion, Socialist-Communist Health Reform Bill:

What a fitting end for CFR-controlled Tom Brokaw’s “The Greatest Generation.” These apostate White Protestant and Baptists, ecumenically and politically linked with the Pope’s White Roman Catholics, endured Rome’s Great Depression caused by key short-seller of stock, Knight of Malta Joe Kennedy; fought the Pope’s Second Thirty Years’ War (1914-1945) that destroyed apostate Protestant Lutheran Prussia and the anti-Jesuit Japanese people; fought the Pope’s Cold War that built Communist Red China and the USSR; fought the Pope’s no-win Korean War overseen by Cardinal Spellman; paid the Pope’s socialist-communist income/excise/privilege tax to finance merely the interest on the nation’s national debt; sent their sons to fight the Pope’s no-win Vietnam War; refused to demand the truth about the Pope’s assassination of President Kennedy; and now broken with no savings and no retirement—thanks to the Pope’s Wall Street Bankers “bailout,” have been put out to sea to fend for themselves—thanks to the Pope’s Health Care Bill soon to be passed by the Senate, and utterly dazed—while addicted to the Pope’s pharmaceuticals, as to how their complete destruction came about. This “Greatest of Generations” is composed of the greatest losers in American history.
