From time to time I get one of those chain mails that constantly weave their way through cyberspace. What I think happens to be the most humorous and thoughtful ones I post.
LETTER FROM THE BOSS…..
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%.
Since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off six 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 lot and found six 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.
Undoubtedly, some will be horrified that a CEO would consider laying off anyone because of their political beliefs. However, election idiocy has consequences.
Consider the nature of Democratic Party majority. Is this not a political party that places political correctness far ahead of corporate profits? If the CEO is not suppose to use profit as his primary criteria for deciding which employees to lay off, what criteria should he use? Would poetic justice work?
If your vote just happens to be one of those votes that your boss thinks helped to cripple his company, why shouldn’t your boss fire you?
Here we have the usual complaint about excessive management.
So what does our political leadership propose? We need layers and layers of government to manage every aspect of the economy.
What follows is a health care proposal that just might improve both our health care and the economy.
