Dear Fellow Business Owners,

As a Business owner who employs 30 people, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barack Obama, will be our next President, and that my Taxes and Fees, will go up in a BIG way.

To compensate for these increases, I figure, that the Customer, will have to see an increase in my fees to them of about, 10%. I will also have to lay off 6 of my employees.

This really bothered me as I believe we are family here and didn't know how to choose who will have to go. So, this is what I did. I strolled through the parking lot and found, 8 Obama bumper stickers on my employees cars. I have decided these folks will be the first to be laid off.

I can't think of another fair way to approach this problem. If you have a better idea, let me know

While I can totally sympathize with your problem, you had better hope that if you do have to lay off these 8 employees that they don't make the connection between their political affiliation and the reasoning behind your laying them off. This could be viewed as retaliation for their political views and could set you up for a class action lawsuit.

What if you just skipped the idea of penalizing the employees that don't agree with your political views and had honest employee performance reviews? The employees that honestly are not performing as they should could be layed off. Keep the employees that want to uplift, improve, and maybe even try new ideas to help the company's financial health improve.
You could be cutting your own throat by automatically laying off those that support Obama. But thatís just my opinion.

The way I see it the dumb SOB's that voted for Obama is the reason he is in this pickle and if I was in his shoes they would be the first ones to hit the road.

I would find it very pleasing to fire these idiots.

They voted for that Socialist bastard. Let Obama take care of them.

Personally if someone came to my place asking for a job and I saw an Obama sticker on his car I would not have hired the idiot to start with.

And before one of you liberal idiots tell us the original poster is FOS and this is not a real question I AM WELL AWARE OF THAT.

This is going around on an e-mail. I saw it two weeks ago.

Still things like this WILL happen. Obama will be a huge problem to small business.

Dear, dear Garand, what if you informed us all exactly what and where your place of business is so we are able to make an informed decision where we may or may not want to do business?
Thanks in advance for your truthful response.
Oh and "happy Halloweenie"!
I agree with you

I think you've made the most reasonable decision possible under these horrid circumstances. I applaud your wise and quick thinking. If only everyone in business could be as sharp as you. I applaud you and wish you the best in the upcoming four years of suffering that we all will no doubt share in.

I would still go to his place of business. I am not doing business with anyone that is for obama. I believe in the bible and our national anthem and if you are voting for obama you apparently dont either.

I would just tell my imployes that if he gets elected you will have no choice and explain why. I work for a small bussiness and i know how things work, and I will most likely lose my job when the tax hikes hit. HOWEVER YOU SHOULD NOT TELL THEM THE OBAMA ZOMBIES WILL BE THE FIRST TO GO,YOU MAY GET SUED. but i would wright their names down and start with them

yeah, you really know how small businesses work and how much they make, i guess that's why you are working for one and not owning one.
so a few of the financially borderline small business owners might have to trade in thier beemers for camrys, cry me a river.
the average american is barely eeking by, and you want them to feel sorry for someone taking home over $250,000 a year?
