1. The whole anti Obamacare backlash is ludicrous

They are not fighting it because the cost because they would just pass it on.

They are either fighting it because the hate Obama or they are fighting because they hate Obama.

5. Almost as much as they hate poor people.

They would rather set cash alight with kerosene than see a drop of that kerosene heat a home in need or a dollar of that cash spent on providing a bit of dignity to the poor.

They HATE the poor. They are driven by a fear and hatred of poverty that is frenetic to the point of mania, and it colors every aspect of their lives. They would, in a heartbeat, put a gun in their mouth and pull the trigger before living in a mobile home and using an EBT card - and this overwhelming fear begets the hatred they have for the poor, including (perhaps even especially) their own employees.

11. And there is the connection

They want their employees to be poor and desperate, so that the workers will put up with crap treatment and low wages.

13. Papa John's CEO John Schnatter's house. Opps, I mean Castle (Literally)

40,000 square feet and it resembles a castle.
This 16-acre estate has a 22-car underground garage, complete with an office for valet parking, a car wash and even a motorized turn table to move limousines.
The home also has a state-of-the-art exercise suite and a huge 6,000 square foot carriage house.

I don't even have words for this level of disgust, and I have a lot of words. It almost makes me wish there were a hell for people like this to go to.

25. It had to be said

Papa John's is, was and always will be bad pizza.

Incredibly, for many years it was my gay brother in law's favorite, but I think he finally got a clue about who Papa really was, despite my nagging him about him for years.

They don't hate Obama because he has awesome shoes. They hate him because they're afraid he won't let them beat on the poor.

10. They're not fighting it because they hate Obama. Follow the money.

These guys are all about money. That's all. The big insurance companies stand to lose, in the long run, because Obamacare is just the first step towards a single payer system. They know that.

37. Hear! Hear! They are terrified that once the real Obamacare provisions kick in...

... there will be no turning back.

The rethugs even admitted that if the Democrats were ever able to provide heath care to the nation, the rethuglican party would never be able to gain power again.

The entire $0.14 statement is false.

lie. Not that I needed much convincing. But I can use it to convince others.

8. More to the point, `

I'm pretty sure their pizza delivery guys don't get health insurance anyway. My son delivers for them, and I've just left a message for him on his cell phone to clarify this for me.

Plus, Papa John's is a franchise operation, meaning the vast majority of the employees would work for the local franchise, not the parent company.

9. Pizza generally is a big rip off, what you get is way over priced for the nutritional value.

 

The ingredients like pepperoni is the poorest kind of sausage and is mostly fat, that's why they spice it so heavily. The crusts are essentially cooked paste and are never crispy always doughy and chewy like gum. The cheese? Forgeddaboudit. All this and you must use a vehicle to get it or have it delivered makes pizza, especially Papa John's pizza, very politically incorrect. Chinese is a much better deal for your dollar. I know, you think it tastes good. Ugh

23. Get Real

He still plans on giving away 2 million pizzas? I don't want one thank you very much. I would much rather this asswipe spend just a few dollars on his employees. Greedy bastards. I was always taught that what comes around goes around. He will definitely have some type of reckoning. Peyton should put some distance between himself and this greedy bastard. What else can you call it? Let's put sick people that can't afford to see a doctor in the kitchen pissed at him making some pizza's for me and the family, or those old folks i visit. Here you go grandma here's some flu and a little TB for you and your pals, glad to bring em when I visit. I'll pass on the free pizza PooPoo John!
