As the CFO of this business that employs 140 people, I have resigned myself to the fact that with Barack Obama as our next President, 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 thru 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.
Nah, it's not me. I'm a joint chair of the home and exalted (not) bookkeeper. (That's the one who gets in trouble when the checking account balance is lower than expected and Hubbers wants to purchase something and doesn't get the OK.)
In all honesty, please pray for our elected officials. Their job, while well compensated, is hard and stressful. God needs to be with each one of our leaders and give them integrity, honesty, ethical behavior, and Godly guidance during their terms.
And don't forget Black Friday is COMING!! Day after Thanksgiving, don't brave the mall or horribly crowded stores for great deals. Shop from the comfort of your home using your keyboard.
