When you copy and paste something stupid being passed aroung the internet at least do some basic research first before you pass it on lest some one
reveal that you are being made a fool. The Department of Energy was not created from nothing in 1977 it simply merged 3 different energy departements
into one to make it more effcient and streamlined. It was not created do deal with the energy crisis or to get us off foriegn oil, that was the
Federal Energy Administration that was created in 74 and then merged into the DoE. It also combined our nuclear energy and weapons
reaserch/development and creation and also the Federal Power Commision.
As for the night watchman story that would be a true story say in the 1950s. Today we all know they would simply contract the job out to a private
company that would provide a few part time minimum wage payed guards.
