Default Lil' Brain Teazer.

Don't know of this is a repost, but i haven't seen it and it'* very interesting.

read it all.................

2 TOUGH QUESTIONS


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'* 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'* a vegetarian,
doesn't smoke, drinks an occasional beer and never
cheated on his wife.













Which of these candidates would be our 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..






Never be afraid to try something new.
Remember: Amateurs...built the ark.
Professionals...built the Titanic






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?









Give up yet?








It'* 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.


You gotta pass this on...

Hitler, from a purely objective view, was a tremendous leader. He rebuilt an incredibly crippled nation economically and militarily in a very short time period, and he gave the German people hope again...

Of course, there were certain "mitigating factors" that significantly diminish his accomplishments.

I knew it was Congress. It really isn't surprising if you think about it. Not reassuring to most people I'm sure I think Michael Moore may have mentioned some of those stats in Fahrenheit 911.
