I recieved this in an E-mail.........and to tell you the truth, I couldn't actually say what the Dept. of Energy did, or was in charge of myself.

I guess we are TOTALLY throwing money away to this agency.

I've seen that one. Wouldn't doubt it one bit. That rat Carter sure did screw up the US. He and Barry are running a tight race on who is the biggest piece of ****!

When business runs DC you get that, strange thing is how the liberals are about the only ones who have been successful in doing anything there or we would not have the emissions (EPA) laws we have.
