Qualities of Leadership
Can you imagine working at the following Company? It has a little over 500 employees with 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 bankrupted at least two businesses
3 have been arrested 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 current defendants in lawsuits
84 were stopped for drunk driving
Can you guess which organization this is?
It's the 535 members of the United States Congress. The same group that perpetually cranks out hundreds upon hundreds of new laws designed to keep the rest of us in line.
Assuming that each number represents one person, that is OVER half. Only problem is that many of the congressmen are probably represented in more than one area of this statistical report. And people are putting all their "HOPE" into this crowd to bring about positive "CHANGE" in their lives and in our country?!?! I have always been told not to seek marriage advice from someone that is divorced and don't ask a broke guy questions about saving and spending so why are millions of Americans waiting for these criminals to clean up the corruption and greed and fix our economy and the rest of the world's woes? How can anyone expect good to come from them in their jobs when they can not produce good in their own lives?
