How Government Works

As you know, all governments are the same.

Recently, here is what happened.

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 to do the studies and one to write the reports.

Then Congress said,

– “How are these people going to get paid?”

So they created the following 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 $18,000 over budget, we must cutback overall cost.”

So they laid off the night watchman.

And here we are to allow that and pay the taxes to make it happen.

That’s life…


But wait!

What if we replace the word “night watchman” by “Democracy”?

And this joke becomes not so funny…
