Papa John’s finally gets some love
for its stance against Obamacare

Yahoo! News, by Brendan James

On Friday, another shot was fired by conservative supporters of fast-food companies claiming to chafe under the requirements of Obamacare. Rebooting America, a small but vocal group formed after the Nov. 6 election, has designated Friday as National Papa John´s Appreciation Day. The announcement was made in support of Papa John´s CEO John Schnatter´s recent statement that the Affordable Care Act may prompt the pizza chain to raise prices and cut employees´ hours in order to keep them from qualifying for health care. Through the Twitter hashtag #IStandWithPapaJohns, the group is urging people to rush out and buy Papa John´s

I belong to Papas Rewards, order online, and every once on a while get a free pizza. Our franchise also has specials, a topping for each redskins touchdown, 50% off on a Nationals or Wizards win by X number of points, etc. the franchise in Broken Arrow OK has no specials. I´m loyal to my Papa Johns, the people in Broken Arrow aren´t. Papa John tries, and is realistic. Now, I will support him more.

This is the tip of the iceberg. An economic tsunami is coming and there won´t be enough time or liberals to boycott them all. God Bless Papa John´s for at least being honest.

We had our Friday night pizza from Papa John´s like we always do. The expected delivery time was hour and a half to two hours. Usual delivery time is about 30 minutes. Our guy made it in one hour. Pizza was hot, steaming and good. The delivery guy was smiling about how busy he was tonight.

I support Papa John´s moves in response to Obamacare, but I am on general strike against our economy and will not be spending money on convenience foods when I can eat far less expensively at home.

Wasn´t sure we had a Pappa John´s here but we do. So I will be stopping by tomorrow for a support pizza.

The one bad thing about businesses cutting hours and layoffs is that it´s going to run the unemployment rate sky high. On the other hand it´s better than a business closing.

However, I won´t feel sorry for any business closing if they are run by Union Thugs, such as Hostess.

Doggone we can´t eat these anymore but by golly, I have friends putting in long hours getting the local food bank ready for a massively busy holiday season. We will call them and tell them to expect some great pizzas to be delivered tomorrow.

We don´t have Papa John´s anywhere around here, but if they were, I´d have supported them on Friday.

´8THEIST´ license plate in NJ: Why
states can´t rein in the vanity plate monster
Christian Science Monitor, by Patrik Jonsson    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/19/2014 4:09:21 PM     Post Reply
If you can get a New Jersey vanity license plate that reads “BAPTIST,” why not one that reads “8THEIST”? That’s the question Shannon Morgan, a self-describe atheist, is asking in a lawsuit after the New Jersey department of motor vehicles denied her vanity plate application. Her main complaint is a bureaucracy deeming that “8THEIST” has connotations that offend “good taste and decency,” the bar which the state uses to judge the suitability of personalized plate messages. She also wants the state to adopt a more “viewpoint-neutral” vanity plate approval policy, since when she typed “BAPTIST” into the DMV application it

Grandma Hillary Is a
Double-Edged Sword in 2016
Time Magazine, by Haley Sweetland Edwards    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/19/2014 3:08:07 PM     Post Reply
When Chelsea Clinton announced Thursday that she’s pregnant, it took the media about two nanoseconds to home in on what that really means: Hillary, should she run for president in 2016, will campaign as a grandmother. (Snip) And for another, Hillary’s newfound role as grandmother isn’t necessarily a political boon. As I wrote in the Washington Monthly’s current issue, it could very easily cut both ways. After all, Hillary, who will be 68 in 2016, already runs the risk of appearing old, a vulnerability not lost on her detractors. From the Monthly: (At sixty-six, Hillary is “not particularly old for

Chef says preparing healthy Passover
seder to suit Michelle Obama
‘is a different (matzo) ball game’

Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/17/2014 7:32:07 PM     Post Reply
Chef Vered Guttman braved the challenge of preparing a White House Passover seder in line with Michelle Obama´s healthy eating guidelines and lived to tell her story. "The traditional seder fare is hardly fresh or healthy," Guttman wrote in a post-dinner review about incorporating vegetable sides to "offset some of the Jewish carbs" like gefilte fish and matzo ball soup. And her hard work to keep it healthy paid off, as both the President and First Lady praised her quinoa-kale salad and even inquired after the recipe. Guttman, a D.C. based caterer, worked with White House executive chef Cris Comerford

Poll: Hillary Clinton’s numbers worst
since 2008, as GOP brand surges

A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton´s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years. Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance. The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton´s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable. The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46. Other polls have shown Clinton´s numbers --

Colorado Democrats
abandon divisive abortion bill
Associated Press, by Kristen Wyatt    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/17/2014 6:57:59 PM     Post Reply
DENVER | Colorado Democrats abandoned their own divisive abortion proposal Wednesday, axing the bill after one lawmaker expressed indecision and it became clear they might not have the votes to pass it in a chamber where every vote matters. Democrats used a legislative maneuver to shelve a bill that would have banned any state regulation of reproductive decisions such as abortion and contraception. It had been scheduled for a vote Wednesday evening in the Senate, where the party holds a slim one-seat majority. The move came after Sen. John Kefalas, D-Fort Collins, said he wasn’t sure if the measure was

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. - Innovative Title Services, Inc., a real estate title services company established in 2003, faces a tax penalty that could virtually shut down the small business. According to the company´s President, Michael Day, the nearly $20,000 late fee is being assessed on taxes that were never due in the first place. Day and his accountant have been appealing the penalty for nearly a year which is due on April 15.

What I learned as a liberal

New York - In the fall of 2013, I gave a TED talk on what I learned as a progressive, on-air talking head at Fox News, where I worked for two years before leaving and joining my current home, CNN. After all, one of the most frequent questions I was asked during my time at Fox was how I did it, how I was a fox in the henhouse – or a hen in the Fox house, if you will. (Snip) For a radical progressive who once harbored negative stereotypes about folks on the right, it was a turning point

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

   

 



 
The Folly Of The Bundy Ranch Rebellion

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too
