Problem Solved

I have received the e-mail below from no less than 6 people in the last 2 days, "DP" gets credit for being the fastest on the SEND button.

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 prices 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 thru 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 since they knowingly approved of these changes in tax law and the resulting consequences affecting our business and their jobs.

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

I'm sending this letter to all the Business owners that I know.

Steve, I finally found you... too long.

I tell you this is tough love - but hilarious! Man, change is all around us, and unfortunately it's going to require some of us to suck it up!

What's Up... I'm usually staying in my foxhole.

Suck it up indeed, but a year from now I plan to look back and say "Yes we made it".....
