Bad Company

" ... it's all part of my rock and roll fantasy ..."

No ... not that Bad Company. The one my son emailed me about:

Do you fancy 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?

Given up yet?

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


All The Best,

That is out of control, I wish I could get a job like that!

That has circulated via email since 1999 or so. Unfortunately, it isn't really true:
