    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 two 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?

    It's the 535 members of the United States Congress. The same group of idiots that crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line…:maddd:

    I hate to say it, but after I read point no1 I immediately thought this was about the NBA. Then I got to point no3 writing bad checks, and I thought

    "Bad checks? They make tooo much money to be bouncing checks all over the place."

    Now that I am in the know - a congressman makes perfect sense!

    Thanks XXPANTHAXX...and yes, sadly enough, we helped finance them...reminds me of the profound words of the Chinese philosopher Mencius:

    "To act without clear understanding, to form habits without investigation, to follow a path all one's life knowing not truly where it leads...thus is the behavior of the multitudes."
