    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 to some 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

    Typical. Asshole boss won't pay a dime for health insurance for his employees, but is more than happy to spring for an annual company picnic to celebrate the company's success on the backs of those he laid off.

    Yeah, annual company picnics are the difference between solvency and bankruptcy.
    In fact, by cancelling the 4th of July BBQ the company I work for saved ten million dollars. /sarc
