ATTN FREEPER / BUSINESS OWNERS: Fire a Liberal Tomorrow it'll make you feel better...
11/04/2008 | vanity / self

Posted on 11/04/2008 8:10:15 PM PST by NYC_BULLMOOSE

Fire a Liberal — it'll make you feel better...

I for one intend to do it tomorrow... NY is a right to Work State, I can fire anyone i want for any reason or for no reason (as long as it isn't racial or gender discrimination)...

Their are a handful of spoiled self-righteous twenty-somethings who work for me... they have no idea what my politics are and have shamelessly worked on Obama stuff at the office... like all narcissist's, they assume everyone thinks like they do... tomorrow two of them will learn the hard way that they were wrong...

Here is what I intend to say:

“The election of a Democratic President and legislature, means that I now view our business prospects in the near and midterm future as extremely challenging... Consequently, I have chosen to immediately implement a series of cost-cutiing measures that include reductions in headcount. Ordinarily, I would do everything in my power to protect your jobs. Ordinarily, I would find making a decision like this difficult and painful... However, these are not ordinary times. This was no ordinary elections. And my decision is not difficult. You have chosen in the past several months to bring your political views into the work place... so it is no secret to me that you have been active in supporting the very democratic candidates who I believe will threaten the very existence of this business... You are apparently, not interested in the welfare of this business and the people it provides with jobs. Subsequently, I'm not interested in employing you. Today is your last day. You'll be paid a two-week severance. You are entitled to COBRA health care benefits as described by law. You are probably entitled to unemployment benefits, but you'll have to pursue that on your own. If you choose to use me as a reference for future employment, I will give a true and faithful account of your performance here, but will also describe my reasons (as outlined above) for terminating you.

You may think that this decision is harsh and perhaps unfair — but no person is immune from the consequences of their actions and decisions. Grownups live their politics — and know you must live yours.

I wish you well and good luck in your future endeavors.”

It’s time to move South and form our own government!

I'm already here. Let's get busy.

Anyone who hires or fires for any reason other than core competence and the bottom line of improving your business, is no conservative.

If a liberal scumbag tripled my revenue, I'd give him a 400% per annum bonus.

Your headline made me laugh, but seriously, that is a bad idea. If you need to cut back, just do it, but without any personal attacks.

Just sack them for whatever..don’t mention the election.
At the same time,,we need to only employ supplier’s and subs who don’t employ illegals and are conservative.
It may cost a little more..but it will be worth it.

The EEOC ruled after the 2004 election that an employer can fire someone because of their politics. The case was from NY where an ice cream shop owner fired a Bush supporter simply because he was a Republican. The EEOC said that anti-discrimination laws only pertained to race and gender.

I don’t think it’s at all harsh. It’s time we took a stand and quit being the nice guy and having them walk all over us.

I do think though you should tell them you’re preparing for the increased taxes coming from Obama but don’t mention you saw them working for Obama. Good luck. I wish I could be there to see their stinky little faces but it’ll teach them a good lesson.

Naw, wifey and I are going to sell her company. Fire the four folks that work for her. Give the house and other property to the kids and go on welfare. Let Hussein pay our medical bills, rent and gas bill.

Why not, looks like at least 70% of Americans feel that way.

Good for you. Teach the little cretins that they should have kept their politics out of the work place.

I commend you for doing this before they can hurt your business further. Most employers will find that it is necessary to pare down their expenses due to the increase in tax burdens Obama and the Dems will cause us all.

You will save the salaries of these two and perhaps that will allow you to keep other more loyal employees longer.

Actually, I agree with this some degree.

There have been at least two “Atlas Shrugged” threads posted tonight, outlining similar plans a la “John Galt”.

Let’s face it, those who voted for Obama did so in the expectation that Obama would stick it to YOU (the small business owner). The rest of the people who voted for Obama are simply parasites who hope to live off of those who work for a living.

So, do what is best for YOU and YOUR BUSINESS. Simply put, find out who were the Obama supporters among your employees, and fire them. Think of it as a latter-day version of the Boston Tea Party. What you save in direct employee costs and fringe benefits, invest towards your own retirement or towards a “rainy day” fund when you can again expand your business without getting hammered for it. Send your wealth overseas, or invest in precious metals, whatever it takes to keep your money where it belongs — in your pocket.

For those on this board who are too squeamish/nice to do this, it was the “nice” McCain who lost this one for us. The only reason we did as well as we did was because the “not so nice” Palin let Obama have it with both barrels.

The time has come to put our money where our mouths are. Stop giving to charity, except your own church, Boy Scouts, NRA, and other selected worthy organizations. Send the Obamabots to the unemployment line. Cut back on production, so the government gets less money. As of NOV. 5, 2008, the productive sectors of this country are ON STRIKE!

God Save America. God Protect Our Beloved Republic and its Constitution.

Are you interested in self-preservation?

That “embracing” liberals is exactly how conservatives get set up like bowling pins over and over by LYING liberals. Trust me, they DO NOT LOVE YOU, they make fun of you and your ideals behind your back.

Time to toughen up as the NY guy says. WAKE UP.

 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, 8%. 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.

I can't think of another fair way to approach this problem. If you have a
better idea, let me know. I am sending this letter to all Business owners
that I know.

To the contrary. He’s a clear thinker. He cuts to the chase. He knows what it means to fight back to SURVIVE.

Pity so many do not have the ability to see what NYC is saying.

To: I still care
If Obama looks like he’s going to push any of those draconian laws (and who here thinks he won’t?) the best thing you can do is get rid of what employees you can afford to.

IOW Fire them now while you still can.

Directive 10-289

"In the name of the general welfare," read Wesley Mouch, "to protect the people's security, to achieve full equality and total stability, it is decreed for the duration of the national emergency that--

"Point One. All workers, wage earners and employees of any kind whatsoever shall henceforth be attached to their jobs and shall not leave nor be dismissed nor change employment, under penalty of a term in jail. The penalty shall be determined by the Unification Board, such Board to be appointed by the Bureau of Economic Planning and National Resources....
