Talking Letter From The Boss.....

As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama is our President, and that our taxes, and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%.
Since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off six of our employees instead. This has really been bothering me, since I believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who would have to go.
So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lot and found six Obama bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this problem. They voted for change; I gave it to them.

I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

FUNNY!
Of course in real life, those employees would protest
the dismissals as unfair and prejudicial
and would win their jobs back in court and then
the government would make the owner "pay" dearly!

I think this is a GREAT! idea.
The people who lose jobs, would be the fools that voted for "him"........
I hope more employers follow this man's lead.....

Is a shame anybody has to lose their job; however, sometimes it just has to be. I can't think of a more fair way to do it. People must realize when they vote it is not only a right we have but a right that has responsibilty that goes along with that right. I wish more people would have done more investigating and more thinking before they voted. Maybe you need to find those six bumper stickers in the parking lot and put another bumper sticker on top of it that asks "How is the change working for you now?".
