Well, That Department Has Worked out so Well!

"Conservatives have long sought to pursue a policy of 'rollback' in dealing with proliferating government departments. The prime candidates on the list of government departments conservatives seek to eliminate are the Departments of Commerce, Education, Energy, and Housing and Urban Development. But at present, only the Commerce Department seems vulnerable."

Oh, just imagine how inadequate our energy strategy would've been without thirty years of the Dep't of Energy? (The mind reels...cue song):

With apologies to Bob Dylan...

How many times must bureaucracy be added
Before we realize it's a ruse?
Yes, 'n how many times will POTUS add a cabinent post
Before we realize it's a joke?
Yes, 'n how many times will we declare war on cancer or drugs
when a dude in his kitchen gets results?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

How many times must a man look up
And still trust the Dep't of Homeland Security?
Yes, 'n how many times must our Grandma be frisked
Before we can fly and be free?
And what does hokey color-coding do
when it's really intelligence that matters?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.
