Layoffs. Don't we wish we could layoff our own government?!

Here is an email that I received from a friend. This is kind of funny, but tells a whole lot of truth.


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 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 gave it to them.

I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.
Most people in OUR country wish we could tell our government these same things...
