OtherLittleGuy: Papa Johns shilling with the NFL on all those free pizzas based on a coinflip -- someone wants to divide by zero really badly.Then again, he could get Goddell to fine people for supporting ObamaCare.
Mr. Coffee Nerves: It's pizza, for fark's sake. If you don't have a decent, locally-owned place near your house then can you bring me back a penguin from Ice Station Zebra?
mjjt: From the Slow Learner's Dept:Trying to wash away the story just makes it worse, because(a)Google effect - journos write more stories about it, and either link or refer to the original, thus lifting the page rank of the original story(b)Human effect - you remind people of a story they would otherwise have forgotten
Acravius: I guess the real question is:Should he charge $0.15 more per pizza sold for his workers to have health care, or pay his workers $7.50 an hour more than minimum wage that would allow them to pay for it themselves?It seems that it would be obvious, which would be cheaper, better & less problematic for him in the short and long term. Also if he were to do a pool rate with a nationwide insurer, he could probably drive the actual insurance cost per pizza down to around $0.08. As all large employers will eventually be required to do the same, by getting on it first, he could have an advantage compared to his other competitors by reducing turnover, and getting some more family oriented people cooking rather than the high turnover Highschoolers or college part-timers that waste training time and dollars throughout the organization.
jaytkay: Papa Johns, Godfathers, Dominoes - what's the deal with conservative assholes and bad pizza?
Sygonus: Never understood why corporate execs are stupid enough to make their companies the target of public flogging by making comments on hotbed political topics. Same thing with Chic-fil-A earlier this year.Keep your mouth shut and lobby behind the scenes, but dragging your company into highly contentious political topics with public statements is the sign of an idiot.
TheDirtyNacho: I own a business and it baffles me when other business owners don't realize what's good for the employees is good for the company. What's good for society tends to be good too, unless you're selling poison...
Brittabot: You can't take something off the Internet. It's like trying to take pee out of a swimming pool.
sethstorm: Papa John's PR flacks are trying to get CEO John Schnatter's anti-PPACA comments removed from the internet. Let me know how that works outNaturally, they use the "out of context/misquoted" card. Now what was the quote again so it can be repeated?/It's PPACA folks//Nothing else.

taurusowner: Hmm. Buy Papa John's because the CEO opposes Obamacare, or don't buy from there because they're trying to backpedal.
