    Maybe that is the root of their problem in the first place?

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I was young and foolish once and thought that big S on my chest meant I was Superman too, Caine. Fact is at your age injury can strike you at any moment, not just army privates. The problem with some folks is until it does strike they shrug and ignore the possibility- until it slaps them in the face.

    Your 'thinking' transferred to retirement is why social security has been so central to American Seniors. Don't want to pay for something til AFTER you need it, but you will be outraged at the cost if it is cash upfront.

    My life since the Army must be a bit more outgoing and exposed to a lot more risk than yours. Do you live in a bunker and have NBC filters?

    No.

    I am a police officer.

    But I still have some of my old NBC equipment (I was an NBC NCO in the 82nd).

    Laughing-
    so you have access to fairly good health insurance for you and yours funded in large part by the taxpayer. Too funny.

    So you really do think that big S is for superman?

    My experience with MOPP was wearing it in a wide variety of units as a 'line doggy'. That is where I learned my S was just a set of oversized Underroos.

    Since then both the wife and I have had accidents due to a very active lifestyle, hers from riding, mine from being in a profession more likely to cause injury than Law Enforcement- agriculture.

    I do hope your Underroo moment isn't too painful...

    Under Obamacare, the company, which is the third-largest pizza takeout and delivery chain in the United States, will have to offer health care coverage to more of its 16,500 total employees or pay a penalty to the government.


    OMG...a 15 to 20 cent increase on a 14.00 pizza to give 16,500 employees a chance at having health care...

    Anyone that doesnt believe thats a value is NUTS...because if they dont have insurance we will pay far more for their trip to the emergency room...

    Romney should use this 20 cent increase as an example of how Obama is destroying America.

    It sells some sort of round, flat consumable item that Red state conservatives can (or maybe could) afford to eat.

    Thanks for prescribing exercise instead of drugs. One doesn’t need doctors any more. OK

    If Papa Johns was the only pizza place that had to increase their prices your position could be rational. But, all Pizza places will have the same issue. And, the burger place will have to increase their prices too, etc. So you have to step back to see the larger picture. Instead of having and very high cost health care provided by the ER or no health care and being sick and unemployable, we could have health care that is more efficient and that puts all Pizza places on a level playing field, burger places too.

    Where I worked I had manufacturing complain about the recommendations I was making. I was forcing manufacturing process changes to reduce defects in product. Manufacturing was measuring the cost of a defect as only the process to fix it, a small cost. We'd just ship our customer a new one. Manufacturing didn't measure the cost of the field engineer, possibly the design engineer (me), the sales guy, etc. visiting the customer; or the cost of the customer considering another vendor.
