A new poll shows that Congress is less popular than carnies, root canals and colonoscopies, but more popular than the ebola virus, meth labs and gonorrhea.

SNIP

On the bright side, Congress came out of the survey in higher standing than North Korea, the Kardashian family, and actress Lindsay Lohan, as well as Cuba's Fidel Castro and former Sen. John Edwards.

The US Congress passed Laws for others (not Moslems
who are immune from ObamaCARE and death panels)
BUT NOT ITSELF, as it enriched its own bank accounts
and helped/helps the Enemies of the American people.

They are disgusting beyond all belief.

But, yet they keep getting elected back into office..... Thus giving them a sense that they are doing something that people like.

They have cheated in elections without accountability.

They grovel in glee as they lie to the People without accountability. eg. Scott Brown

Another result of the ‘dumbing down’ of America.
A Senator will sit up there and blame Congress for all the problems.
The pResident ‘blames’ the Republican led Congress for all his problems.

It doesn’t get pointed out enough that Congress is the SENATE AND HOUSE, ‘but’ as long as no one has to or is willing to accept responsibility, let’s just blame someone else.

A POX ON ALL 3 Branches.

Can't vouch for the accuracy....but received this in an email yesterday:

OR

36 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, I repeat 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 currently are defendants in lawsuits,and

84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year !

Can you guess which organization this is?

Is it the NBA Or NFL?

Give up yet? Scroll down....

Neither, 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.

.
No, they perceive that people really want to keep the status quo and don’t want to be bothered with change.

Maybe....probably. First I’ve seen it. Would be interesting to delve into the current crop of polidiots in DC and check such stats.

I guess what I found most interesting....and disturbing in its own right....was the fact that it didn’t surprise me in the least. Kinda says a lot.

I thought they’d be right up there with burglars and used car salesmen.

What’s the difference between Congress and a root canal?

A root canal actually solves a problem

I haven’t voted for a member of the House of Representatives for over a decade. Both parties’ candidates stink to high heaven, so I don’t cast a vote. In my district the Republican always wins, anyway.

This reminds me of that old joke, “Why does Philadelphia have all the lawyers and New Jersey has all the toxic waste dumps?”

“I don’t know; why?”

“Because New Jersey got to pick first.”
