Are there any wealthy Republicans out there that aren't stereotypical mustache-twirling villains?

Generally No. Few people make it that high up the ladder without being some kind of greedy sociopath.

There may be a few, but they're smart enough not to pointlessly stick their foot in their mouth like this moron.

This clown should be more worried about the $250 million nationwide class action lawsuit that has been filed for his company spamming the shiat out its customers after they've asked for it to stop.

The Left thinks we are discouraged; they think they have won. Let's send a clear message this Friday, like we did on Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, that we are here to stay and that we won't stop fighting."

So the gays are responsible for Obamacare! Of course! It all makes so much sense now.

I wonder if this guy knows that chick-fil-a gave in and the dude won't be donating to those anti-gay groups any more.

What's this guy's story? Not much in wiki. How did he get his start?

I think he used to be an exec at Dominos or Pizza Hut and bailed to start his own place a few years back.

Didn't he borrow the start up money from his dad? Y'know, the Romney Plan.

FTA: National Papa John's Appreciation Day...the event is organized by Rebooting America, a conservative group that formed the day after last week..."We're standing up for a business owner that was bold enough to tell investors and the American people that the Affordable Care Act will hurt profits"

That's all that matters to these greedy assholes. I got mine, fark you and everyone else.

Wiki references him buying back the Camaro he sold to start the business. Papa Johns site says he started it with $1600 out of the back of his Father's bar. So, yeah, bootstrappy. Don't you hate that?
 
2012-11-16 11:58:56 AM
Papa John doesn't know how to run his pizza business. The government should force Pizza restaurant owners to give their employees health insurance. If they don't, then our government should nationalize the pizza industry. It is for the greater good of ensuring pizza cooks and pizza delivery drivers get health insurance. After all, Obama knows how to run a pizza delivery franchise better than Papa John.

Nothing makes a shiatty frozen pizza taste better than knowing someone with a bad case of the flu made it and handed it off to a delivery person with untreated scabies!

It's pizza, people. If you don't have ONE decent locally-owned place next to you then I hope you're enjoying the view of The Thing approaching.

Service industry businesses typically don't think of their employees as even being human; more like utilitarian livestock.

His business is going to suffer greatly. He should just close up shop now.
 
2012-11-16 12:05:30 PM
Too bad we don't have something like universal healthcare, then these businesses wouldn't have to worry about it.

Look, the guy employs a lot of people, and he has given large amounts of money to charity, but he is still a douche for what he is doing NOW. It is a 50/50 self-made man. Yes, he used daddy's shop to set up business, but he went with a business plan and he made it. Good for him.

He's still being a douche about THIS issue.

And when he loses millions in profits from people no longer buying his pizza because of this, he'll blame it on Obama.

... AND
Weird that in one post you claim to not know anything about how he started the business because there isn't much info on Wiki, then you counter it by referencing info FROM WIKI on how he started the business.

If only there were some sort of alternative system that would universally cover everyone rather than leave it up businesses and individuals to pay into private insurers. I can't think what we'd call it.
 
2012-11-16 12:36:03 PM
Employers are pissed that they can't keep passing off their responsibility to their employees to the rest of society. And yet these are the same people that biatch because the hospital tax for their county hospital keeps going up year after year and Medicare/Medicaid costs keep going up and up

Not shocking. At all

Meh, this guy did well, and did it from a lot of hard work and sacrifice. His situation isn't exactly the same as a Romney or a Trump being born on third base.

That said, he's being a douche and screw him and his shiatty pizza.

Exactly. Being a bootstrapper doesn't inoculate you from criticism for screwing over your workers because of a smallish increase in business expense.
