I feel 100% vindicated in my prediction to folks at work and fellow managers that Obama would win seeing as he has the most direct lineage to the
British royal family just as the presidents of the last 20 years have (at least).
Been saying this since the candidates were decided. Of course I usually avoid politics here on ATS as I don't hold to any political party.
Unfortunately an Obama win means that I have to inform over 20 people that their hours are going to be reduced to part time after we resume operations
following the winter slow down. I am a manager at a very popular plant nursery in town and don't enjoy this one bit as the people I am cutting hours
for are the only ones I view as actually earning the pay. (They are being replaced by aqua/hyrdoponics system which currently does most of their job
for a ridiculously small fraction of the cost).
I already had the displeasure of letting go of two people from our gift shop as they didn't contribute anything to the shop as I do all the
merchandising, stocking, inventory and despite a 150% increase in revenues for the shop (since I took over from one of them) we couldn't afford to
keep them on full time (they refused part time) due to a massive drop in plant sales.
I am also dreading all the additional paperwork which will be thrown in my warehouse from the healthcare bill . . . ugh as a former notary public I
should be used to endless boring bureaucratic drivel but I still shudder.

I should have clarified that the folks at work all tend to be RaRa Democrats and the managers RaRa Republican (how original right?), rereading my post
comes across quite elitist. My apologies.
