    If the same entity owns more than one franchise, it counts as a single business.

    I am pleased with Obama's work over the past four years. He got more done than I expected given the obstacles in his way.

    I don;t care in which direction you lean. I don't like to be misquoted or having anyone make untrue claims about me. that's the point. Stop acting like a leftist and you won't suffer the accusations.

    I'm sorry, I didn't think you'd flip flop then claim you never said it.
    Here is what I said.
    It was the government who not only encouraged banks to lend mortgages to those who couldn't afford them, they actually passed laws forcing banks to lend money to people who would not otherwise be eligible for them through the traditional means. In fact Barrack Obama, during his 'community organizing' days, was one of those who brought a class action suit against City Bank (I believe it was) for not allowing sufficient mortgages to minority applicants. Again, it was the government's attempts at social engineering that was the source of the problem, and there will naturally more of that on the way.
    It was the government. Barack Obama was one of those who brought a class action suit against Citi Bank.Again, it was the government's attempt at social engineering that was the source of the problem. That is what I said.

    You responded with "So you're sticking with the "Obama created the 2008 crisis" argument?

    Now where did i say that? Can you see it anywhere?


    I tried then to bring you back onto topic by pointing out that the crisis happened before obama took office. You went back to blaming obama.
    Quotes. Please use quotes. Can you do that? I don;t want you to reinterpret what I said into something quite different.

    Listen, I can not f***ing stand obama, seriously. He's a horrible, horrible president. But I'm not so ridiculously uneducated as to try to blame the origins of the financial crisis on him.
    See above! If you can find where i blamed BHO for the origins of the financial crisis please point it out with some quotes.

    Right. Trillions added to the debt, the "stimulus package" lost in space, people going without homes or electricity on the east Coast because of the weak infrastructure (despite the trillions of dollars disappearing), sustained high unemployment and a foreign policy that has become a shambles.

    You lile that, huh?

    It is impressive....Because he probably paid more than his 'fair share' in taxes to go toward the things that you THINK give you the meme 'you didn't build that'....

    My point is BEFORE the election our friendly pie man attempted to influence voters by threatening a pay for pie price hike of a whooping 14 cents.


    AFTER the election he now threatens his employees with reduced hours instead of the paltry price hike. Make this VERY clear, he isn't reducing the employee pay to cover the healthcare cost, an hour or two would do that. He is dropping their pay to avoid covering them under a plan he doesn't agree with politically not to mention he didn't want to cover them even with the much 'treasured' private healthcare coverage.
    He knew that Obamacare would increase costs, but he wasn't sure whether or not it would remain in place. Whether or not he agrees with Obamacare is immaterial. It raises costs and those have to be absorbed somehow. Yeah, maybe he used this episode to make a political point, but to say that there is valid reason for his actions is to completely ignore the rules of economics

    I'd pay 14 cents more for Papa Johns... it is a great pie. I will not however support petty, unsavory punishing of his employees for an election loss.

    PLENTY of other pizzas out there.
    Well you might, but Papa John's doesn't really care that much. There are two ways to absorb higher costs, higher prices or reducing costs somewhere else. Pizza is an elastically priced good, a rise in price will prompt significantly fewer customers. Therefore, most of the cost hike will be borne by lowering costs.

    edit -- wrong gazillionaire.

    Pappa Johns does mostly a delivery business. Probably wouldn't do as well without roads and bridges....
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Hey Adam, I got news for you, he pays taxes too....What does his tax money not count for some reason born out of your jealousy of not being as well off as he is? This is stupid. You libs want to attack those not paying their fair share, then I suggest you look within the group found to not be paying any federal income taxes at all, they use infrastructure as well, rather than the group that collectively pays something outrageous like 70% of all income tax paid into the system....

    The problem with progressive liberalism is that it doesn't raise all boats, instead takes pleasure in sinking all to equality in misery....Not what I want to see in this country.

    Then again he needs the money to pay the massive penalties for spam-texting his customers.
