I found this in the comment section of a local article talking about
how CA unemployment is 8.3%... Third highest in the nation..
As the CEO of this 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 would 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 eight 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. If you have a better idea, let me
know.

Sincerely, The Boss!

Wow! This sounds just like the Bush Administration! Use ideology to determine who you hire and fire, and don't worry about job performance or competency.

"Brownie, you're doing a heckuva job."

Great parable. ;)

BP, are you always so cheerful or do you put that burr under your saddle yourself when you wake up in the morning... jeez.

And people around here think I have a bad sense of humor.

When you hit your "Funny Bone" do you laugh or cry, or just blame it on Bush?

Good grief regards

And he's a real hoot at parties too.

Yes, I have a better idea. If due to economic restraints, I were forced to lay off part of my work force, it would be based on performance assesments and not on my employee's politics. The ability to produce results, increased sales for instance, would be more important to me and my bottom line, than what bumper sticker they displayed on their car.
Are you really in business?... or just a nattering na-bob? (Thx, S. Agnew)

You can always spot the liberal by the big hole where the sense of humor is supposed to be.

It was funny the first time,

Is it supposed to be funny everytime it gets reposted?

In all fairness, I guess it could be. I know I get a chuckle from the list of Bush-ism's every time it gets reposted.

I thought you were democrats which supports labor unions. The unions I've come across negotiate contracts where seniority is the standard. Meaning the laziest piece of crap employee can have one day longer on the job then the best most productive employee in the place. The lazy guy can bump the best guy off jobs he wants. Good guy gets layed off first,ect,ect. Nothing is based on performance. This takes away managements power to reward good employees and give the worst employees the worst jobs= motivation. Things like this had a large roll in the decline of the auto industry.

Looks like I just got bumped in the lack of a sense of humor department.

Thanks Hoosier ;)

Didn't I just kinda admit that most people around here don't think I'm funny? At least I get other's humor... well, except yours and BP.

Well, come to think of it, I'm not sure BP has one.

Smilies back regards!
