How the U.S. Government influences our lives every day

Recommended Posts

Subject: Just for thought --

The following is not my composition -- but I agree with it for the most part. It is a comment responding to the article about Sen McConnell on the Huffington Post and Nationalized Medicine.

"This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power utility regulated by the US department of energy. I then took a shower in the clean water provided by the municipal water utility. After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC regulated channels to see what the national weather service of the national oceanographic and atmospheric administration determined the weather was going to be like using satellites designed, built, and launched by the national aeronautics and space administration. I watched this while eating my breakfast of US department of agriculture inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the food and drug administration.

At the appropriate time as regulated by the US congress and kept accurate by the national institute of standards and technology and the US naval observatory, I get into my national highway traffic safety administration approved automobile and set out to work on the roads build by the local, state, and federal departments of transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the environmental protection agency, using legal tender issed by the federal reserve bank. On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to be sent out via the US postal service and drop the kids off at the public school.

After spending another day not being maimed or killed at work thanks to the workplace regulations imposed by the department of labor and the occupational safety and health administration, enjoying another two meals which again do not kill me because of the USDA, I drive my NHTSA car back home on the DOT roads, to my house which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and fire marshal’s inspection, and which has not been plundered of all it’s valuables thanks to the local police department.

And now I am no longer afraid of Russian Missiles flying overhead from Cuba, or coming right over the Arctic Circle and right past Sarah Palin's BBQ Grill in Alaska where she is now roasting freshly killed Alaskan Caribou or fresh and clean Alaskan Salmon. Nor do I fear anymore Boeing 747's being commandeered by Mind Controlled Middle Eastern wackos. And if you think that the Taliban in Afghanistan has a chance against our mostly volunteer military forces recruited and trained by the DoD you are sadly mistaken, my friend. Their hometowns range from Paducah, Kentucky to

Little Rock, Arkansas to Saratoga Springs, New York to Abeline, Texas to Los Angeles, California and they are risking their lives to keep you free from foreign terrorists forever.

I then log on to the internet which was developed by the defense advanced research projects administration and post on http://www.facebook.com/l/;freerepublic.com and fox news forums about how SOCIALISM in medicine is BAD because the government can’t do anything right."

Well guess again, my friends. And if you think that our U.S. Government planted nanothermite in the World Trade Towers, or that Aliens were involved with the death of JFK, well then you must be nuts.
