Our wonderfully efficient government

This was e-mailed to me and I thought I would share it.

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???


Ah, yes -- good ole bureaucracy

And, NOW, we are turning the banking system, HEALTH CARE, maybe the insurance industry and the auto industry over to the same Government?

Open Letter to Congress

Dear Members of Congress,

I sit here bewildered and confused today after observing your actions. So, I have a few questions that I would love to have answered.

Why was it necessary to spend more than an hour of tax-payer time to scold a congressman that had already apologized twice?

Why are we spending hundreds of millions of dollars on mice, horses and other wild animals to have nice homes when millions of Americans are losing theirs?

Why are you allowing the President to appoint three dozen Czars, mostly with no oversight without raising holy hell?

Why are the unions getting more control over companies like GM when the shareholders are losing their investments?

Why is SEIU helping to write any legislation, isn't that your job?

Why did the "Apollo Alliance" write the stimulus bill?

If you are not writing the bills and you are not reading the bills, how do you know what is in the bills?

If you are not reading or writing the bills, do we really need you to vote on them?

Why hasn't EVERY member of congress demanded a full audit and investigation of ACORN and their affiliates?

What is it that ACORN does that makes them worthy of up to 8.5 BILLION dollars of funds borrowed on the backs of my children?

If the president surrounds himself with radicals, and, has a lifetime attraction to radicals, why shouldn't he be considered a radical?

If anyone that disagrees with the president is racist, as we have heard over and over again, why was everyone that disagreed with Bush a patriot?

How long does it take for the house ethics committee need to investigate and find that Charlie Rangel cheated on his taxes?

Speaking of tax cheats, why is it again that you have confirmed tax cheats one after the other to manage the money and policies of this nation? If they can't handle their money, why the hell are we trusting them with our money?

When are you going to read the US Constitution? When will you start following it?

I will wait for your response,

Tom Walker

Someone please explain to me how this is the republicans fault?

Don't the Democrats have majorities in both the house and the senate?

Is it the the left needs a cover, so when this nightmare blows up and the American people are looking for blood, the cowards on the left can call it bi-partisan?

Doesn't seem like the "leadership" knows how to lead.

The blame should fall squarely on the shoulders of the moderates in the democratic party. they are over passing progressive legislation, just to advance the progressive movement.

September 8th - Dear Leader Indoctrination Day at School

In case you have a life and missed the news, Dear Leader is scheduled to give a speech on Tuesday the 8th of September. One of the reported goals is to ask your children to help support the presidents agenda and policies. If you support Dear Leader and his policies and agenda, this is a good and happy day for you. If like me you find everything that the administration and congress is doing is abhorrent bordering on criminal, then Tuesday will be a long and stressful day of either keeping your kids home with Obamaflu or going to school with them to defuse the propaganda that this administration loves to spew.

Link 1 - Propaganda is the word of the day, see what the NEA wants your kids to read to reinforce the speech Dear Leader is giving Tuesday the 8th.

This video is a light overview of what the curriculum is for the event

If you choose to allow your children to participate, you may want to sit through it with them or at the very least defuse the propaganda with some home schooling after school. Here is a suggested curriculum for the aftermath of propaganda ala Dear Leader;

It's the obligation of an American citizen to question, challenge, be suspicious of government.

Question: Why were the Founders fearful of government?

Question: In what ways did they insure limits on government power?

Question: What are the enumerated powers of the federal government?

Question: In what ways did FDR violate the Constitution?

Question: In what ways is BHO, the new FDR, attempting to circumvent the Constitution?

Question: What can you do as an American citizen to make certain your government remains true to the Constitution?

Question: Why is an educated populace important to a free society?

Questions: Why did the Founders encourage public schools, to teach classes on of the Constitution?"

Question: What elements of our government today might be causing our Founders to turn in their graves?

Cash for Codgers

Democrats, realizing the success of the President’s “Cash For Clunkers” rebate program, have revamped a major portion of their National Health Care Plan.

President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Sen. Refd are expected to make this major announcement at a joint news conference later this week. I have obtained an advanced copy of the proposal which is named….

“CASH FOR CODGERS” And It Works Like This…

Couples wishing to access health care funds in order to pay for the delivery of a child will be required to turn in one old person. The amount the government grants them will be fixed according to a sliding scale. Older and more prescription dependent ‘codgers’ will garner the highest amounts.

Special “Bonuses” will be paid for those submitting codgers in targeted groups, such as smokers, alcohol drinkers, persons 10 pounds over their government prescribed weight, and any member of the Republican Party.

Smaller bonuses will be given for ‘codgers’ who consume beef, soda, fried foods, potato chips, lattes, whole milk, dairy products, bacon, Brussels sprouts, or Girl Scout Cookies.

All ‘codgers’ will be rendered totally useless via toxic injection. This will ensure that they are not secretly resold or their body parts harvested to keep other ‘codgers’ in repair.
