Can you imagine working at the following Company? It has a little over 500 employees with the following statistics: 3 have been arrested for assault, 7 have been arrested for fraud, 8 have been arrested for shoplifting, 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges, 19 have been accused of writing bad checks, 21 are current defendants in lawsuits, 29 have been accused of spousal abuse, 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit, 84 were stopped for drunk driving in 1998 alone, 117 have bankrupted at least two businesses. Can you guess which organization this is? Give up? (scroll down)
It's the 535 members of your United States Congress.
The same group that perpetually cranks out hundreds upon hundreds of new laws designed to keep the rest of us in line;
and exempts itself from some of them (such as the evil obamacare);
and exempts the government and it's employees from criminal liability.
This 'item' is old/out-of-date; I am not the original source.
I cannot vouch for its accuracy but perhaps someone could compile the same statistics for our current Congress.
