A Compassionate Layoff Letter

H/T to Tom & Dave

Dear Employees:

As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barack 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.



And for all of you who like fun and games, The Barack Hussein Obama 2011 State of the Union Drinking Game! A few of the rules:

  • Every time Barack H. Obama mentions bipartisanship, everybody has to drink two shots of beer. If he talks about the lessons of Tucson, the last person to throw their arms in the air, fall to their knees and shout “Hallelujah!” has to drink one entire beer.
  • Every time Barack H. Obama says “Democratic leadership,” the first person to stop laughing is exempt from drinking two shots of beer.

    Well Bob

    It sure is a novel way of getting the message across and some laughs at the same time. We need both.

    That guy has a great idea there. Maybe that will catch on. Most Obama Bumper Stickers disappear shortly after the Cash for Clunkers program. How ironic is that?

    Now that is some sound reasoning right there…

      Howdy, Mark. That’s why he’s the boss. Unfortunately, he can now look forward to tax audits, a denial of his request for an Obamacare waiver, and mandatory unionization of his shop. After all, we can’t have too many contrary capitalists interfering with the Great Leap Forward…
