Sorry Mr. Obama

I am a patriotic American, and therefore, just like many of my fellow conservatives, I wanted to see Mr. Obama succeed and prosper this nation in creative, new, effective ways. Instead, so far, what I have seen is MORE spending on "wants" and less on "needs" (to quote my friend and fellow blogger Mandee.) I have seen a reluctance (failure) to face down the earmarks and pork that so often plague good legislation. And so, I have to post this, sent to me by family friend Debbie R. because it sums it up simply...


"As the CEO of this organization, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama is our President, and that our taxes, and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%. Since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off six of our employees instead.

This has really been bothering me, since I believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who would have to go. So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lot and found six Obama bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this problem. They voted for change; I gave it to them.

I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic."

That is funny. It reminds me of what grades actually mean at school these days with grade inflation. Everyone wants an A, right? But, not everyone works for an A. And if you give everyone an A, you get in trouble because then the next teacher gets kids that don't know anything. Well, if you fail everyone, like you should, then you get in trouble, too. So, grades could just be decided on the steps of the school. You write down all the names of the kids on papers, throw them down the stairwell, and then whichever randomly land on the A step, get A's, the B step, B's and so forth until you've reached all the way to the F's....or maybe you'd better stop with D's so that no one gets mad.

I know that that something paralleling the economy right now....maybe you can figure it out.
