    Layoff letter from an excellent boss

     

    Dear Employees:

    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%. But since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off sixty 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 lots and found sixty '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.

    THE BOSS

    • Sorry, I consider myself a Republican, but I can't take your side on this. Somehow, the nutcase McCain got nominated in primaries and caucuses across the country. Come election time, it was presumed that I would to choose between McCain and Obama. I made the only rational decision: I did not vote. If you want a good president, then your job is to participate EARLY and ensure that people aren't forced to choose between two dumbasses.

    • I am sick of people blaming Obama. Who started the whole thing. This country was in great shape when Clinton left. One hsould be thankful to Obama that many of us still have jobs. If he wont not have handeled the way he did, we would been starving instead of playing the market as there wont have been any Wall Street. Just sit down quietly in the corner of your room adn think, think and then Thank Obama for all what he did.
