"Can you imagine working at the following Company? It has a little over 500 employees with 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 bankrupted at least two businesses. 3 have been arrested 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 current defendants in law suits. 84 were stopped for drunk driving in 1998 alone. Can you guess which organization this is? Give up? 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."

The liberal media pretty much ignores this as they do so many things that the public expects them to report. Freedom of the press, indeed!

    We punish this band of thugs by reelecting them over and over. As to American voters, never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers.

    What congress (time frame) does this apply? Is there an update for the current group of tyrants?

    Hey Chip...it's the 111th Congress.
     -- J Carlton, Calgary     
    ...and among these 70 there is not a scintilla of common sense...as for the communist Schakowsky, she lets her husband Mr. Creamer do the heavy lifting, crime - wise. Probably no one is watching the antics of the spouses - that might shoot the stats up just like our national debt under the Kenyan.

    A person might ask what are these people doing in government representing the citizens, why do these crooks and basically people of very poor character continually being reelected?
    The answer is simple, they promised benefits to the voters to reelect them so the hard truth is are the voters any better because they hire a scoundrel to rob their neighbor instead of having the guts to do it themselves.

    Key factors is government indoctrination in the education system, the destruction of the family and the assault on targeted people of faith primarily Christianity.

    You have to love the illicit / unconstitutional "Democracy" we are terrorized under. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land's criminal high priests and priestesses (can't forget to include the judiciary and executive) act almost uniquely in forging their destruction of a once conceived free people.

    How can someone down vote this quote?

     -- Felipe, São Paulo     
    Carlton, this is old news  socialism is now openly called for by elected Democrats in Congress.  The party is nearly split between establishment Democrats (that live on graft) and socialists (game riggers).  ALL lie, lie, and lie...
