Someone accidentally sent this to me by email yesterday..
A LETTER FROM THE BOSS…..
As the VP 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.
Loved this joke from the Onion on Obama’s new web strategy. More fun though less enlightening than the piece in Wired Magazine.
WhiteHouse.gov, the official website of the president and vice president, was relaunched Tuesday and includes links to Obama’s weekly video address and a blog. What do you think?

“Finally, a president who understands technology. Oh, and human rights. And climate change, foreign policy, and the Constitution.”
