Received this email today and thought it was hysterical so i am passing it on.

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

To compensate for these increases, I figure that 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 six 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 and I gave it to them.

If you have a better idea, please let me know.

Sincerely,

Bob

Sell your corporate jet and reduce your compensation to $1.00 per year.

This way when they come to tax the rich you wont be one. :rofl:

WD40 works well to remove bumper stickers, although it takes some time. Some of the "bumper sticker removal" concoctions will eat the paint right down to the metal, for those that don't understand the concept of 'BUMPER sticker'. And the adhesive on some of those stickers is permanent! I've seen them take the paint off a car when not removed with some sort of remover. John C.

Only 6 out of 140, might as well find 8 more and make it a full 10% reduction in labor force. Never hurts to be proactive.
