Belias: So Papa John's says that they estimate implementing the requirements of Obamacare will result in a COST to them of 11 cents per pizza. Sensationalist news organizations misquote the CNN article and claim an increase in the PRICE of pizza. Papa John's PR ask them to remove their erroneous articles.

I need a little help targeting my outrage. What should I write on my Papa John's protest signs again?


That's not what the article says at all. It basically says it will cost 11 cents a pie...and PJ's can easily absorb it. What's your beef?

The majority is not poltically engaged enough to realize one way or the other about the comments he made. That is the biggest reason we are in the mess we are in now. Let the monkey fly the plane, he's cool.

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.


Frikkin' ABSOLUTELY. In fact, you could expand that beyond just corporate execs. I play with a musical group locally, and while waiting for our slot one Saturday afternoon at a local venue the guys playing were finishing their last set. These guys were making *major* political statements.....CONSTANTLY. And they kept doing it...over and over. They thought they were being cool and witty....they were being STUPID.

Pissing off half of your audience isn't really the best thing to do, y'know.

LtDarkstar: I actually agree with Papa John's on this


You agree with a proven lie? That's an odd thing to admit on the internet.

DeathCipris: I stopped buying Papa John's pizza part because their pizza sucks and their comments about the situation. He is a greedy fark and I am not going to support a business like that. There are several businesses in my area I do not patron because of their shiatball attitude or because of previous indiscretions.
Hope you like a nothing you dumb fark.


I'm with you. I'm not delusional in thinking that losing my dollars will bankrupt the company, but my wallet is the only way I have to vote. If enough people take the same stance as me, the cumulative impact will prompt change.

Why are CEOs so stupid? Is it nepotism?

Mrtraveler01: Silly Jesus: I see places like WalMart and Papa Johns as subsidizing welfare, not the other way around.

Which makes sense because most of their workers still have to depend on welfare even though they have a job.


They would otherwise be depending 100% on welfare. They are at the last rung before being a total ward of the state. Walmart lets them stand in their doorway and wave and fart and throws some money at them. It's like charity.

So when you run a business that provides food, it's not a good idea to make public that the people handling said food have no health insurance. Who knew?

Uh...its not charity, you moron. It's the state subsidizing Wal-Mart's work force. Jeesh, what are you a paid shill or something? As Anti-ANYTHING that helps poor people in any way, you should be foaming at the mouth at the way Wal Mart is using the state to keep their employees alive because they dont pay enough for it on their own.
