      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'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 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 tatistics:
      * 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 (e.g. you are not allowed to distill
      your own spirits).
