      Once upon a time.....
 the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.

      Congress said, "Someone may steal from it at night."

      So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.
      Then Congress said, "How does the watchman do his job without instruction?"

      So they created a planning department and hired two people, one
      person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.

      Then Congress said, "How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?"

      So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One was to do the studies and one was to write the reports.

      Then Congress said, "How are these people going to get paid?"
      So they created two positions: a time keeper and a payroll officer then hired two people.

      Then Congress said, "Who will be accountable for all of these people?"

      So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.

      Then Congress said, "We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $918,000 over budget, we must cut back."
      So they laid-off the night watchman.

      NOW slowly, let it sink in.

      Quietly, we go like sheep to slaughter. Does anybody remember
      the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY during the Carter administration?

      Anybody?

      Anything?

      No?

      Didn't think so!

      Bottom line is, we've spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency, the reason for which very few people who read this can remember!

      Ready??

      It was very simple... 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.

      Hey, pretty efficient, huh???

      AND NOW IT'S 2012 -- 35 YEARS LATER -- AND THE BUDGET FOR THIS "NECESSARY" DEPARTMENT IS AT $24.2                  BILLION A YEAR. IT HAS 16,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND APPROXIMATELY 100,000 CONTRACT EMPLOYEES;
      AND LOOK AT THE JOB IT HAS DONE!

      (THIS IS WHERE YOU SLAP YOUR FOREHEAD AND SAY, "WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?")

      34 years ago 30% of our oil consumption was foreign imports.
      Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports.
      Ah, yes -- good old Federal bureaucracy.

      NOW, WE HAVE TURNED OVER THE BANKING SYSTEM, HEALTH CARE, AND
      THE AUTO INDUSTRY TO THE SAME GOVERNMENT?

      Hello!!

      Anybody Home?

      What could possibly go wrong !!!

      Signed....The Night Watchman

ACTION ITEM: Your Liberties have been infringed

Texas Attorney General
Date: Wednesday, April 3, 2013, 1:49 PM



Your Liberty -- as a United States citizen -- was weakened and threatened yesterday when the Obama Administration helped the United Nations pass the Arms Trade Treaty. Immediately after this disappointing vote, I wrote a letter to President Obama urging him not to sign the treaty.

If the President signs the treaty allowing the UN to be involved in regulating firearms in the U.S., Texas will lead the charge to have the treaty overturned in court as a violation of the U.S. Constitution.

I need your support. Please help us get the word out by referring 3 of your friends right now, and forwarding this email to 5 of your friends. Together, we can make a difference.
America is exceptional in part because our Constitution safeguards our individual liberties – including the right to keep and bear arms enshrined in the Second Amendment.

The new UN treaty threatens your rights:
   it doesn't recognize the individual right to keep and bear arms or the fundamental right to defend yourself, your family, or your property;
   it empowers a new UN bureaucracy focused on firearms restrictions that will be run by international bureaucrats who are not accountable to the people of the United States.
   it could impose firearm registration requirements that may empower international authorities to get information about American citizens and businesses.

This UN treaty does more than trample Second Amendment rights. It also threatens to erode all liberties guaranteed to Americans in the Constitution by giving the UN power to govern our lives.
Please refer 3 of your friends today and forward this important message to 5 of your friends right now. Your voice must be heard on this issue.

When the Constitution says, “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed,” it means no one—including the UN—can infringe upon that right.
UN treaties do not trump the Constitution.  And with your help, we will make that message clear to President Obama and this administration.

Sincerely,


Greg Abbott
