Government Green

Yesterday’s report by the Government Accountability Office referred to two “humorous” policies that are worth mentioning in case you didn’t see them.  I say humorous, but, as I, like you, are paying for them, perhaps they are not so humorous.

The first:

[the GAO] chided the government over encouraging federal agencies to purchase plug-in hybrid vehicles while having policies that agencies reduce electricity consumption.

And, the second:

[The GAO] said government agencies have purchased numerous vehicles that run on alternative fuels only to find many gas stations don’t sell alternative fuels. This has led government agencies to turn around and request waivers so they didn’t have to use alternative fuels.

Yes, this is the same government that wants to run your health care.

    The Lilliputians held Gulliver down with countless tine threads.  Our economy is similarly restrained by countless petty regulations.

    Every law and agency enabling law should have a sunset date not to exceed a decade.  Every agency regulation should be subjected to Congressional review and re-authorization.

    Pogo was right: "We have met the enemy and he is us."
