    Question 1:
    If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had
    8 kids already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally
    retarded, and she had syphilis,would you recommend that she have an
    abortion?

    Read the next question before looking at the response for this one.

    Question 2:
    It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts. Here
    are the facts about the three candidates.


    Candidate A.
    Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologist. He's
    had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

    Candidate B.
    He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college
    and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

    Candidate C.
    He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an
    occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.

    Which of these candidates would be your choice? Decide first...no peeking, then scroll down for the response.











    Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
    Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
    Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

    And, by the way, on your answer to the abortion question: If you said YES,
    you just killed Beethoven.

    Pretty interesting isn't it? Makes a person think before judging someone.
    Wait till you see the end of this note! Keep reading...

    And Finally, can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than 500 employees and has the following statistics:

    * 29 have been accused of spousal abuse
    * 7 have been arrested for fraud
    * 19 have been accused of writing bad checks
    * 117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
    * 3 have done time for assault
    * 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
    * 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
    * 8 have been arrested for shoplifting
    * 21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
    * 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year...

    Can you guess which organization this is? Scroll down.








    Give up yet?
    It's the 535 members of the United States Congress. The same group that
    crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in
    line.

    Someone forwarded this to me in an email, and I thought it was intriguing enough to share with you.

    Very intersting stuff man. Really makes you realize that no one is perfect including ourselves, and we need to think first before passing judgement. :court:
