Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown in the economy, President Obama has decided to implement a scheme to put workers of 50 years of age and above on early retirement, thus creating jobs and reducing unemployment. This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early). Persons selected to be RAPED can apply toPresident Obama to be considered for the SHAFT program (Special Help After Forced Termination). Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (System Covering Retired-Early Workers). A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as President Obama deems appropriate. Persons who have been RAPED could get AIDS(Additional Income for Dependants & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance). Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by President Obama. Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive as much 'shiznit' (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. President Obama has always prided himself on the amount of 'shiznit' he gives our citizens. Should you feel that you do not receive enough 'shiznit', please bring this to the attention of President Obama, who has been trained to give you all the 'shiznit' you can handle.
