    Can somebody post a thread about it when he actually does it in 2014. Until then, it is nothing but posturing.

    I don't see how this is going to work. You announce you are going to increase your prices across the board 5%, cut worker hours, and you expect us to feel bad for you? It would have simply worked better from a PR standpoint had you announced that you are going to lay off workers instead of trying to suck in more money from customers at the same time that you remove the vitality of a worker's salary.

    All this is going to do is encourage people to not be a paying customer, which makes your 40 restaurants suffer regardless.

    Indeed.

    You said the act was parasitic, but then said it was a predatory practice and by doing so made a grave error. In truth, the act is more like a scavenger where it consumes dieing things. A scavenger just so happens to also have a certain predatory nature, but NOT a parasitic nature. Didn't you ever wonder why they call it what they do? In truth, I could of just told you upfront what was wrong with what you were saying, but I decided not too.

    You'd think he'd be offering a 5% discount to pay for the stents and cardiac care their greasy food causes.

    Vultures... parasites ....predators .... hyaenas.... they all have a commonality of method and purpose. If you intentionally decide to be blind to that reality in the pathetic attempt to score some point that I am wrong - that is just sad.
    Sorry my friend, but words have meanings. You can't call someone a parasite if they purchase something from someone else. That's called cooperation. Mutual exchange. Both parties benefit -- the seller and the buyer, else they would not have made the exchange.

    So the business owner sells his business (in whole or in part) to the venture capitalist. The business owner benefits by acquiring money, and the investor benefits by acquiring ownership of the business asset.

    There is no parasitism in this scenario; you are imagining it if you see it here.

    If everyone else raises their prices too, then what you're suggesting amounts to punishing someone for being honest about their reasons for doing so.

    Businesses always pass the costs of government action to the consumers. If you make it more expensive to do business, prices of goods and services go up, basic principle.

    Pedantic was the wrong word.

    actually in my world I know the difference between science and politics. Too bad everybody cannot tell the difference.
