Dear Employees:
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 sixty (60) 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'll give it to them.

I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

    I think that would be a good way to see who got the pink slips. The main man on the encomony said if we do not get the debt down to 5oo billion by 2015 we are in big finanical trouble and how do we get this money and He said taxes on the rich will not cover it WELL OBAMA lied no taxes for the middle class ! HE LIED!!!!! Can not trust HIM ever !!!

    I used to work for Lockheed, the layoffs came just before Obama got installed, there are still a lot of Obama stickers in their parking lot. It was the last hired that got dumped.

    looks like that is what bush was trying to do .. and yeah i will be mad at bush .. until this unemployment is lowered this unemployment roll started on his shift ..and republicans need to stand up and take responsibility for .. and jump in with both feet .. to help get people back to work .. sense they were responsible for our unemployment

  • concerned apacheh... 2010/04/12 23:01:57
    that is just were he started .. just that Bush left such a great mess .. the private sector is scare .. and those banks .. won't lend money .. and it takes money to make money .. so all left to do is to rise those taxes that bush gave out .. LOL
  • Rogue-Wolf 2010/04/11 23:52:18
    If they did that where I worked ther would be only 2 of us left and they'd have to close the college, since 90% of the students there are Obummer supporters!

    Stupid me, I thought people went to college to get smarter not dumber!

    In college, you sacrifice common sense for higher education, or what I refer to as ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE!

    This 'CEO Letter' appeared here on SodaHead shortly after the 2008 elections, and created quite a stir.

    Brace yourself for the uproar.

    Yes, they deserve the change they voted for!
  • P-Funk 2010/04/11 15:22:50 (edited)
    I had to lay off about 10% of my headquarters staff during the Carter Administration, so I held an all-hands meeting to make the announcement and told everyone "If you receive a lay-off notice with your paycheck today, you can thank the people who voted for Carter." Then I detailed specifically how certain Carter policies were forcing us to reduce our staff.

    But this is better! If I could have figured out a way to select only Carter voters, I sure would have.
  • MW121 2010/04/11 12:39:11
    This scenario is coming and coming to a town near you... I just don't think this administration is here to help save the private sector.. so if you are in the private sector.. be warned and start looking for new opportunities incase you see yourself getting an envelope soon. It's sad that this administration thinks growing government jobs is where the economy is going to change... So they just keep taxing and taxing companies and people making money and they think people are just going to take a little hit to hire more people.. Give me a break.. They launched a new employee tax refund.. Are you kidding me.. do they not think we can add... Do they think a business is started to create head count vs profits.. The way things are going I hope people realize there's no new jobs coming in the horizon.. It's only going to get worse once all the companies figure out how much the taxes and healthcare is going to cost.. It's just sad.. We're all screwed
  • Elfhaba 2010/04/11 06:07:05
    I think it is time to give Obama and the Congress a lay off notice. We should have done the same under the Bush/Cheney administration. How many more corrupt administrations will it take before the people send this group of law breakers to their prison cells?

    I have spoken with four small business owners this past couple of weeks. Every one has told me that they will have to let employees go when the insurance becomes necessary.
  • cathy Compass... 2010/04/11 23:07:12
    I have heard the same thing, the small business owners will be in trouble but it does not stop with them.

    True big business counts on small business.
  • Greywolf 2010/04/11 05:30:45
    LOL ! can just see em now standing in that line for Obama-Bucks ;) sadly tho it seems the layoffs are effecting everyone. Just think in 2012 when HC starts if not stoped...part-time employees and their families will be on the company hc rolls. That is IF the companies cont to hire part timers.

    Reality Hurts!
  • johnc 2010/04/11 05:12:38
    That is great.
    Sometimes a content people are taken advantage of. Sometimes we trust too much, Sometimes we expect honesty.
    I always think back, there was a time I trusted everybody, then there was a time I trusted maybe half. Now, after being exposed 66 years hard to find someone to trust, I did not vote Obama, grudgingly McCain, Too many lies, and secrets when he was running. avoiding unemployment keeps the unemployment high, Obama creates crisis, creates demons, increases government control. wants to get like Europe very high unemployment. So he will find someone , something to blame but he will not go for lower unemployment, remember it leaked from the white house. "never let a crisis go to waste" Sometimes truth comes out.

    I've notice that many of the O's are disappearing on the bumper of cars in my area. Any one else?
  • garyt212 noobama... 2010/04/11 05:08:18
    Not only are they disappearing but they seem to have been replaced with "Honk if you think Obama Sucks!" bumper stickers. Sometimes it sounds like midtown Manhattan around here!
  • noobama... garyt212 2010/04/11 05:13:14
    LOL..... 24/7 too?
