  • 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.

    b.. FEDERAL EMPLOYEES
    c.. AND APPROXIMATELY
    d.. 100,000

  • I don't get your point to this OP, Sweet? So you are saying since many Republicans didn't complain over the years, that they don't have a voice today? Or their voice isn't legit? Should Republicans roll over and let the Banking System, Health Care & the Auto Industry grow under Government influence and control?
