    TWO 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 answer 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 leading candidates.

    Candidate A - Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with
    astrologists. He's 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's a vegetarian, doesn't
    smoke, drinks an occasional beer and never cheated on his
    wife.

    Which of these candidates would be your choice

    Decide first, no peeking, then scroll down for the answer.















    Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.


    Candidate B is Winston Churchill.


    Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.


    And, by the way, the 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. Never be afraid to try something new.

    Remember: Amateurs built the ark. Professionals built the Titanic.

    One More:
    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'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. You gotta pass this one on.

    I didn't find it particularly amusing, since it's very misleading. If Hitler had got into Art College he would never have come into power. He was an oridnary, dull, lazy man, whose only gift was public speaking.

    That's Stalin's sneaky way too, but only at first.

    I prefer Lenin's way- most openly all-controlling- but even he used the tactic of seeming unassuming, with a manky suit. Do they all do that?

    to be honest if it wasnt him it would have been someone else - such was the state into which Germany had evolved regrettably

    Blair did the whole revolutionary act. Bush played the "daddy" card ah who am I kidding, I don't know! I just know Putin was nang, a former spy, making friends in high places and sneaking up...
