This Is Supposedly An Actual Memo

[Supposedly from an actual internal memo that someone received and posted to the internet.]

As the CFO of this business that employs 140 people, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barack Obama is 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 eight of our employees instead. This has really been eating at me for 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 8 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.

Karma's a bitch, ain't it? If I owned a business, that's what I'd do.

Can you recommend a good book on how to run/participate in an underground economy, that doesn't involve drug dealing? Or does such a book even exist?

I only HOPE this is real, although my male intuition says it is. The average business owner is quite smart enough to guess the havoc Obama will wreak on them directly and indirectly. What better way to offset it than to give the airheads who're responsible for it a dose of their own medicine?

Urban legend obviously, but the point is well made.

From "The Virginian"- This one has been going around the net for several days now. It might well be true. I made a list of addresses in the neighborhood that had had "Obama" signs, then inquired of the tax commissioner's records to see if they were up-to-date on property taxes. Surprise, surprise! Most of them were delinquent. More "Change" We Can Believe In!

That's just too good to be true.

This is wonderful !. The oneĀ“s who have voted for the horrible person should suffer, unfortunately the whole world will suffer. Since I live in Sweden, I feel that Sweden as well as other European countries pay the price for Hitlers loss in the last world war. We are being completely inundated by mudpeoples from every corner of the world. Iraquis, negros, gipseys , you name it. They bring relentless crime, savage rapes against our white women and girls and they bring diseases , they are taking the few jobs that are left and they bring utter havoc and misery. Unfortunately my people does not react. Someone told me that the insane migrationpolicy against our western world is Hitlers revenge against us stupid westernes who won the second world war for the jews , the war only served jewish interests. Perhaps he was right..
