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.”

NO!..
I will work with each person as I do every day. Each Individual is who they are, not who political issues are. I work with many liberals and love them, I will not punish them for national elections.

Conservatism is about the individual, not the system!

You can hire me to replace them. I just lost my job as a financial analyst last week - the day after one of the more senior members in the office saw the McCain bumper sticker on my car.

I think if you feel Obama will bankrupt your business, then getting rid of some kid working for you, would be the right decision.

It’s time to move South and form our own government! The old South they all went for McCain! Plus most of the mid West. We can succeed from the Union and Form the United Southern States of America. We will use the original constitution. Put up border guards and only allow conservatives to live down yonder!

I keep hearing people talk like this, but if you made it known you selected people for termination based on their political views, couldnt you be sued? Or something?

Not that the idea doesn't have some appeal to me.

Even if it's a “Right to work state,” you still have to make a case, or they will sue for a “wrongful discharge.”

Don't say that it was because of political differences. If they were performing non-work related tasks while on-the-clock, write them up. Track their internet usage. They'll use it for non-work-related uses. Write them up. Create a paper trail and then fire them.

You don't want to get sued, make them famous, and put cash in their pockets. If you want to fire them, fine. But be smart about it.

And I agree. Eff them. No more Mr. Nice Guy. It's gotten us nowhere.

Tell me what’s classy about providing a job for someone who wants to take money out of MY pocket? Who wants to prevent me from leaving my daughter the money I EARNED?

You know what is “class-less”?

Thinking that you have an “inaleniable right” to a job you didn’t dreate — while you work to undermine the person who gave you that job...

No more smiling everyday at people who can’t create but feel totally entitled to take what I create...

I’m F-ing sick of it. “Want to take my property and ruin my country? Well, it’s a free country (for now) so go for it — but not on my dime a$$hat”

If you would retain or terminate an employee based on their political preferences, I can’t imagine their position to be terribly important to your business.

I am curious what will happen BUT remove any hard copy words like “Democrat” or “Obama” on the termination letter to protect yourself legally.

Right now, playing by the rules while the enemy consorts with ACORN to steal away our elections...go ahead. I don’t care at this point. I am completely devoid of any emotions. Make em suffer.

If they're good workers - for God's sake - don't fire them. We'll get the dems back - history shows us that. We just have to be patient and fight back in the meantime.

A private firm can hire and fire, as long as there is no racial or sex discrimination, at will.

fire a lib...no but there is something employers should start doing

1: any increase in taxes should be posted on the employees check stub on a seperate line. any and all taxes and gov fees.
2: include the cost of benefits they pay 100 for health, you show that you pay 300.
3: same with unemployement ins...soc sec...etc(the part the company pays)

let the employees know how this stuff directly effects them.

as long as they live in a vacum, not knowing this is what you get.

educate a liberal...not fire

Actually, firing people is not a bad idea.

You know Obama is going to greatly increase the burden on employers. In France it’s almost impossible to fire anyone - that’s why unemployment is endemic. People won’t hire someone they can’t fire. That’s why France has the business growth of a slug.

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.

If they're productive employees, you should keep them on. Productivity matters more than politics.

I hate Obama's politics more than anyone's. The only silver lining in Obama's victory is the fact that this country has come so far since the Jim Crow days. Who would have thought 40 years ago that we'd elect a president in so short a time? I only wish it could have been a black president with politics like Michael Steele or Thomas Sowell or J.C. Watts. But that wasn't to be. Still, that's the silver lining I see in it. It makes it a lot tougher for people to accuse America of being a racist country. Anyone agree?

There is a lot to be said for restraint of tongue and pen when one is angry. Conservatives have class and are fighters, but haters? No. That is what differentiates us from the Liberal Demons. They will do anything when they are angry.

Allow yourself anger and disappointment for a few days, but do not act from that place. Get your house in order and fight for real change for our country. Firing a liberal is just a cheap shot in anger. You aren't going to change any hearts or minds that way. You are just going to piss people off. If they are doing their job let them be. Take a time out and find an area that you want to make real change in politics and work there with a group of folks of like mind. You clearly are on fire and have a lot of passion put it toward change that will matter in the long run my FRiend.

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.

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.
