I’m not ever really going to get political here but this one will make me laugh for ages. Rick Perry has been appointed ,baring a disaster at the senate hearings, as our new energy secretary. I’m going to go ahead and quote some Wikipedia at you now.
The United States Secretary of Energy is the head of the U.S. Department of Energy, a member of the Cabinet of the United States, and Fourteenth in the presidential line of succession. The position was formed on October 1, 1977 with the creation of the Department of Energy when President Jimmy Carter signed the Department of Energy Organization Act. Originally the post focused on energy production and regulation. The emphasis soon shifted to developing technology for better and more efficient energy sources as well as energy education. After the end of the Cold War, the department’s attention also turned toward radioactive wastedisposal and maintenance of environmental quality.
In the jist of it this guy has a lot to do with maintaining our nuclear arsenal. Mostly with the security of it as well as getting rid of the waste from it. What ol’ Rick thought he was going to do was go around the world talking oil , yucking it up with his friends and getting paid by government to do it. So here is a list of the last three guys in charge
Former Director of M.I.T.’s School of Engineering Practice and a former member of the M.I.T. Commission on Education
Nobel Prize in physics in 1997 won for his research in the ability to cool and trap atoms with lazers. That doesn’t even make sense to me.
PhD in Theoretical physics Stanford
And that brings us to Rick Perry

Yell leaders-students that lead Aggie fans in a series of “yells” during athletic events or other school events (male Cheerleader if you ask me)
