    Can you imagine working for a company that has a little more than
    300 employees and has the following statistics:

    30 have been accused of spousal abuse.
    9 have been arrested for fraud,
    14 have been accused of writing bad cheques.
    95 have directly or indirectlybankrupted at least 2 businesses.
    4 have done time for assault.
    55 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit.
    12 have been arrested on drug related charges.
    4 have been arrested for shoplifting.
    16 are currently defendants in lawsuits.
    62 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year.

    Can you guess which organization this is?
    It is the 301 MP's in the Canadian Parliament. The same group that
    cranks out hundreds of new laws designed to keep the rest of us in
    line.

    This just made me laugh. And this is the shit we KNOW about too.

    I do believe you're entitled to an uprising.

    Perhaps American politicians are better at not getting caught.

    ...and thats what's sad. Abuse, Drunk driving, and Fraud are the 3 that really worry me tho. I really don't give a shit about my politicians smoking some weed or maybe doing a little coke while they were in college, but I really don't want someone that is not trust worthy (or corupt and crooked) runing my government.
