Absolutely the funniest joke ever......ON US!

Got jokes? Maybe a video of Darwin Award candidates? Put 'em here. This is the place for all those funny films, silly stories and twisted tales that give you a grin. (*** disclaimer: Darwinism is not endorsed and, while laughable, should be debunked - see Creation v Evolution below)

Absolutely the funniest joke ever......ON US!

· Let it sink in.

· Quietly we go like sheep to the 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?





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!
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 & the Auto Industry over to government?





GOD HELP US!



God Bless America
