A Business Model

Fellow Business Executives:

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

To compensate for these increases, I figure that the 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 through our parking lot and found 6 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,
John Smith
CFO

They must have found 4000 Obama bumber stickers at University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston because thousands, including my wife, were laid off. Only thing is we dont have an Obama sticker on our cars and wouldnt ever consider it!

Oh wait, there are airlines and car companies that need multi
