Dear fellow employees:

 As the owner of this business that employs 140 people, I have resigned
 myself to the fact that Barrack 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 a while, as we believe we are family here and I
 didn't know how to choose who will have to go.
Overwrought with this decision, 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.
