David Siegel wrote a letter to his employees that he would fire them if Obama were re-elected (http://www.cnbc.com/...). What he really meant to say was:
To All my valued employees,
As most of you know our company, Westgate Resorts, has continued to succeed as the economy has improved. Like other companies, we sucked when the economy was completely in the toilet. Fortunately, that is no longer the case. As such, the economy doesn't currently pose a threat to your job. What does threaten your job however, is another 4 years of President Obama because I will fire your ass if you vote for him. Of course, as your employer, I can't tell you whom to vote for and as such I am including the following legal notice so I can't be sued or go to jail: "I certainly wouldn't interfere with your right to vote for whomever you choose. In fact, I encourage you to vote for whomever you think will serve your interests the best."
The current administration and members of the press have perpetuated an environment that casts employers against employees. I am therefore going to engage in that environment by letting you know that its me vs. you. This is bad for you because I have more money and power. How do you like that bitches? The media label us the "1%" and imply that we are somehow immune to the challenges that face our country. This could not be further from the truth. When the economy tanked, I had to fire my housekeepers and do those miserable chores myself. Holy shit did that suck! Do you know what kind of crap and filth is in my house. I can't believe that there are suckers out there willing to work for the current minimum wage to do that.
Now let me tell you how I achieved my awesomeness. I started this company over 42 years ago. At that time, I lived in a very modest 5 bedroom 3000 square foot home. I converted my three car garage into an office so I could put forth 100% effort into building a company, which by the way, would eventually employ you. I drove an old used Mercedes. I stayed home on weekends and even once in a while worked on Columbus Day. In fact, I was married to my ideal business - hard work, discipline, and sacrifice.
Meanwhile, the dickheads I hung around with worked the same kind of crummy jobs I'm having you do. They did their work and spent all their money. They drove flashy Chevrolets and Fords, lived in new KB homes, and even wore clothes they bought at the Gap. These dickheads refinanced their mortgages with regular rates. They didn't even try and gyp everybody else with liar loans. Fools! I however, ignored them because I had a vision of stepping on them later. Hahahaha. Even to this day I keep this vision in mind. Since Bush's recession, however, I've had to change my way of life. Hell, I put my kids in public schools. Jesus Christ those schools are in trouble. How the fuck are we supposed to teach our kids when those schools are getting barely a fraction of what I paid the private schools. As you can see, life has been hard for me.
Just think about this, while most of you are picking your kids up from daycare or taking them to the doctor or whatever, I'm figuring out ways to squeeze extra pennies. I'm the one who has to figure out ways to get more money for our shareholders (most notably me). If that means that worthless lazy dregs like yourselves get screwed, well tough. The media only see my gargantuan castle but don't ever talk about the sacrifices. They don't even shed a light on the crap I make you put up with. They don't talk about the difficulties of running the business such as finding ways to skirt regulations, conning local governments to give us money, or continually looking for workers who will do their job for less pay. All they care about is that ridiculously large house. Its just not fair!
Now, with the economy starting to recover following the decimation caused by lacksadasical banking oversight among other things, I am being forced to give more money to help Wall Street high flyers. Me! What a bunch of crap. These assholes get their golden parachute to live the life of luxury and I have to pay for it? Why should they be able to win a yachting race against someone like me who has been working towards it for 42 years. Its just not right!
We are being forced to pay more taxes than I want. There are lots of taxes and frankly, I think they all blow. I begrudingly even had to HIRE people to track all this tax shit. What the hell? Jobs created by business should strictly be jobs for the business and any other jobs incidentally created are really inefficiencies that need to be eradicated. If we eradicate taxes, I can then eradicate that whole part of the
accounting department. Just think, our shareholders would get an even bigger return and afterall, you are working for the shareholders. Now I ask you, who is stimulating the economy - the government, who forced me to waste money on hiring tax people, or someone like me who is actively working to get extra return for our shareholders.
Obviously, our present government believes that taking my money is the right economic stimulus for this country. The fact is, if I deducted 50 percent of your paycheck you'd quit and you wouldn't work here. I mean, why should you? Who wants to get rewarded only 50 percent of their hard work? Well, that's what happens to me - at least according to my accountants. Other people have said I only pay about 10% in federal taxes but does it really matter whether I pay 50 or 10 or 0 percent. What matters is that taxes suck, I don't want to pay them, and I shouldn't be forced to do something I don't want to do [please note, since I employ you, I can still force you to vote as I want you to vote].
Here is what most people don't understand and the press and our Government has chosen to ignore - if we deposit money in Washington, there is less money available for me.This means that I can't keep as much. Don't send the money to Washington. Keep it here. Keep it with me! The employees that aren't fired will be able to get more money (because there will be fewer people for me to pay after firing a bunch of suddenly useless people). As some founding father said, or at least some guy who played a part in one of the well known national documents (I can't keep them straight and what the fuck do I care, I'm rich and don't need to know dick about history) "owning slaves shows how wealthy I am."
So where am I going with all this? It's quite simple. If any new taxes are levied on me, or my company, as our current President plans, I will cripple this company because I'll be goddamned if some nigger will tell me what to do!
That's right motherfuckers, I'm willing to cut off my nose to spite my face because I can buy a whole fucking island. Just think about that - a whole fucking island! An island. Mine. The rest of you can all just kiss my ass.
So vote as I want you to!
