Hey, they asked for it!

As the CFO of my business that employees 140 people, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama is our next President, and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases, I figure that the clients will have to see an increase in our fees to them of about 8%. But since we cannot increase our fees right now due to the dismal state of our economy, we will have to lay off six of our employees instead. This has really been eating at me for a while, as we believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who will have to go.
So, this is what I did. I strolled through our parking lot and found 8 Obama bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the first to be laid off. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this problem.
These folks wanted change;
I gave it to them.

Being a Republican, I'm not one to defend Democrats but in this case, I think it's warranted. I'm pissed at my own party right now for what we had a part in creating.

This post shows just how smart a good, partisan Republican can be. Don't make your decisions based on someone's contribution or value to the company. Politicize it! And, that's probably one of those CEOs who feels entitled to a salary of 400 times that of his employees. It's his company so I'll defend his right to do as he pleases. Just don't go around blaming problems that you may have had a part in creating entirely on someone else. Man up and be part of the solution!

They voted for Obama, got laid off and will probably blame it on Bush... stupid fuckers. They deserve to be laid off.
