How Government Works

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
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
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.
