In other shocking news, all Obamacare problems will be blamed on greedy CEO's or George Bush.

Welcome to a rerun of OWS, where nothing would be blamed on the filthy lunatics shitting in the street, stealing, raping, etc.....all the fault of the 'system'.

Welcome to another 4 years of abject stupidity and aggravation.

The Obama orgasm is infinitely shorter this time, yet the fake blame game will grow exponentially.

Idiocracy gains strength.

there are a lot of businesses talking about this including McDonalds and Darden Restaurants as well. If these companies get hit with material increased costs, its going to come at the expense of the employees, that's a fact. I am trying (and going to continue to try) to not bash Obama. There is no point really, he won again, and this is his last term and his success as a president in the 2nd term would actually be for all of our good, so I am keeping my fingers crossed. But Obamacare is a horrible fucking bill, just awful. I am not opposed to nationalized medicine. But this isnt national healthcare, this was a gift to the insurance companies, forcing new members to them with no cost controls. It's honestly a disaster.

Shocking that companies will act rationally
It was down in Louisiana,
Just about a mile from Texarkana,
In them old cotton fields back home.

That's not a fact its a theory of what you predict will happen. Now it very well could happen but its not a fact.

What could also happen is companies increase their prices which is more likely.

Or a combination of the two. And I don't think it's a theory, the companies have already announced they are going to have to make changes, and I referenced two companies have already announced doing it. So that's a fact. Jack.

No,its not a fact. If Kansas State says they are going to win the college football championship does that make it a fact? I think not!

Just because somebody says they are going to do something in the future doesn't make it a fact, Jack.

Thats a pretty bold opinion considering you think that just because someone says something that its a fact.

I guess you thought it was a fact when Romney said he was going to win the election

Is this when I mention that Peyton Manning bought 21 Papa John franchises here in Denver?

Once again, you don't understand the basic difference between someone making a prediction versus a corporation declaring a corporate action.

Oh, let me close with your specialty.........

Is this where I mention that Peyton is a genius seeing as how Colorado voted for personal use of weed?

  • Posux Said:





Do you guys even look up basic business info before making these comments? Pappa John's is mainly a franchise business (3,200 franchise stores versus 600 corporate stores- approximately). So the pappa john's guy in the article specifically mentioned the franchises, and he's probably right, after all he talks to the franchisees. Whether this guy lives on a palace on the moon or in a shack is irrelevant. What's relevant is the impact Obamacare is going to have on costs for the franchise owners.

Here is their annual report if you want to understand their business model a little better before diverting attention away from the issue instead of about "Big Poppa".

Once again my humor escapes you and you get all serious when I was just posting a funny picture that is related that I saw on another site.
