Socialism and the Govt: Think about this (No, I didn't make it myself)
"This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by
electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the US
Department of Energy.
I then took a shower in the clean water provided by the
municipal water utility. Then, I brushed my teeth with that water, filtered to
standards set by the EPA and my state.
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 built 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 issued by the Federal Reserve Bank and printed by
the Federal Bureau of Engraving and Printing. 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.
Then, 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, I drive back to my house which has not burned down in my
absence because of the state and local building codes and the fire marshal's
inspection, and which has not been plundered of all its valuables thanks to the
local police department.
I then log onto the
Internet which was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects
Administration and post on freerepublic and fox news forums about how SOCIALISM
in medicine is BAD because the government can't do anything right. Keep
government out of my Medicare!
