fair?????
 
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 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.

I'm not sure it's "fair", but it is kinda funny. :laugh:

Where did you find this, Matt?

It is funny, but also a great metaphor to ponder as well. :)

That's because he is president of the "global regime"

That's pretty funny, Matt. :laugh:

I would actually let the people go that didn't vote at all (who were eligible and had no excuses why they couldn't). IMO

For a minute I thought this was real and felt sick to my stomach that you had to let some of your employees go. Glad it was just a joke :laugh:
