I got this from Kingdavid. Did you know that Carter instituted the Department of Energy in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil? Did you know that 31 years later that department's budget is at $24,200,000,000 a year?
They have 16,000 federal employees and approximately 100,000 contract employees working to free us from foreign oil.
As KD says, "what a great job they have done!" And at what a price!
