A Despicable Cretin....Who's Also No Good At Math
I know, I know. You're dying to learn which douchbag Republican (other than, you know, ALL OF THEM) is the subject of this Thread Title. The answer is the Dumbass CEO Du Jour, Papa John.
Turns out that someone smarter than Papa John (show of hands) actually crunched the numbers and rather than $0.14 per pizza to provide health care, turns out that it's less than $0.05 per pizza -- or a little less than one percent of the cost of the pie.

3. After watching the Men Who Built America series, I've learned most wealthy ppl are either
born that way or acquired their $$$ by bulldozing everything and everyone in their path. Unscrupulous, crooked, single-minded sociopaths.

4. You might enjoy "Accidental Empires" the story of Gates, Allen, Jobs and others who ...
... were in the right place at the right time and did just enough right things to create their fortunes.
Computer manufacturing is--after cars, energy production and illegal drugs--the largest industry in the world, and it's one of the last great success stories in American business. Accidental Empires is the trenchant, vastly readable history of that industry, focusing as much on the astoundingly odd personalities at its core--Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mitch Kapor, etc. and the hacker culture they spawned as it does on the remarkable technology they created. Cringely reveals the manias and foibles of these men (they are always men) with deadpan hilarity and cogently demonstrates how their neuroses have shaped the computer business. But Cringely gives us much more than high-tech voyeurism and insider gossip. From the birth of the transistor to the mid-life crisis of the computer industry, he spins a sweeping, uniquely American saga of creativity and ego that is at once uproarious, shocking and inspiring.
Straight, but not narrow.
