    As the CFO of this business that employs 140 people, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama will be our next President, and that our taxes and government fees will increase in a BIG way.

    To compensate for these increases, Our 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 thru 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,

    I was sitting here thinking during lunch and this thought struck me.

    After all that time and money spent during the election, what actually was the outcome? ......

    Another Black family moving into government housing!

    This same announcement was made before the election, during and now after. The idea might be real but not original.
