Poetic Justice.......

I recently receive an e-mail from a friend that had a letter attached. The letter was from a corporate CEO who was addressing the subject of how the business was going to survive in the new political and economic environment. Here is the text of the letter:

Dear Employees,

As the CEO of the organization, I have resigned myself to the fact the 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 estate 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 that 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.

Poetic Justice!!!!!
