Default OT: Would you work here?

Don't know if this is true or not, but I thought I'd share it with all my OSO compadres (my gut feeling is that it contains more truth than fiction...)

Quote:
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 what this organization is? Give up yet?

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.

Those numbers seem a little on the low-side!
