...in words any person with a job should understand. (I know this will sail over Sambo's head, but this isn't written for his ilk.)
This is not a threat, it's a reality. If this oligarchy is given another 4 years, this nation as you know it will dissolve. It will be a Humpty-Dumpty moment, and Atlas will shrug...you can bet the farm on it. Nothing can be more understandable than what this business owner/employer writes. This is unarguable. Obama is the most ignorant fool to ever live in the White House. He has no clue what is involved in running a small business, or ANY business for that matter. As has been stated many times, "elections have consequences". This coming one will be the biggest most consequential in our lifetime.

My friends refinanced their mortgages and lived a life of luxury. I, however, did not. I put my time
To All My Valued Employees,
There have been some rumblings around the office about the future of this company, and morespecifically, your job. As you know, the economy has changed for the worse and presents manychallenges. However, the good news is this: The economy doesn't pose a threat to your job.What does threaten your job however, is the changing political landscape in this country.
Ofcourse, as your employer, I am forbidden to tell you whom to vote for - it is against the law todiscriminate based on political affiliation, race, creed, religion, etc.Please vote for who you think will serve your interests the best. However, let me tell you somelittle tidbits of fact which might help you decide what is in your best interest.
First, while it is easyto spew rhetoric that casts employers against employees, you have to understand that for everybusiness owner there is a back story.This back story is often neglected and overshadowed by what you see and hear. Sure, you seeme park my Mercedes outside. You saw my big home at last year’s Christmas party. I'm sure allthese flashy icons of luxury conjure up some idealized thoughts about my life.
However, whatyou don't see is the back story.I started this company 12 years ago. At that time, I lived in a 300 square foot studio apartmentfor 3 years. My entire living space was converted into an office so I could put forth 100% effortinto building a company, which by the way, would eventually employ you.My diet consisted of Ramen Pride noodles because every dollar I spent went back into thiscompany. I drove a rusty Toyota Corolla with a defective transmission. I didn't have time to date.
Often times, I stayed home on weekends, while my friends went out drinking and partying. Infact, I was married to my business -- hard work, discipline, and sacrifice.Meanwhile, my friends got jobs. They worked 40 hours a week and made a modest $50K a yearand spent every dime they earned. They drove flashy cars and lived in expensive homes andwore fancy designer clothes. Instead of hitting Nordstrom's for the latest hot fashion item, I wastrolling through the Goodwill store extracting any clothing item that didn't look like it was birthedin the 70's.
