Satire by John W. Lillpop
Although the Obama administration is openly encouraging defense contractors to violate the WARN act by NOT issuing layoff notices to employees who may be terminated as a result of Sequestration-driven cutbacks, common sense and decency suggest that those who are likely to lose their employment should be notified of such eventuality as soon as possible.
Which is why this reporter believes that President Obama should be alerted to the fact that his continued presence on the government payroll is very much in dispute.
We believe that the president should receive the following 90-day notice, backdated to October 20 as soon as possible:
October 20, 2012
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Attention: Barack Obama
Dear Mr. President:
Although this notice is not required by WARN or any other Congressional mandate, common decency and transparency demand that we advise you that your employment with the US government is in serious jeopardy, and may very well be terminated by We the People on November 6, 2012.
Should your employment, in fact, be terminated, you will have until January 20, 2013 to remove your personal effects, and those of your family, from the Oval Office and residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
By law, the White House must be vacated and in shovel-ready status for the incoming President (Mitt William Romney) by high noon on January 20.
There is no appeals process: The decision of the American people is final.
Please return all White House keys and locks to the on-duty security guard outside the Oval office. Bring the nuclear football with you to the Inauguration of President-elect Romney.
We wish it were possible to report that the past four years have been a pleasure; however, the word honesty precludes us from doing so.
Best wishes to Michelle and the girls for the days and years to follow.
WE THE PEOPLE
From Sea to Shining Sea
