Papa John's Pizza To Raise Prices Because Of Obamacare, CEO John Schnatter Says (CORRECTED)

Commented Aug 8, 2012 at 00:14:31 in Business

“I'd say it's worth paying 15 cents more per pizza so the employees can have health care. Of course, they could just let the Bush tax cuts for billionaires expire and maybe we could use that money instead.”

ScottiesRule on Aug 8, 2012 at 00:17:52

“Or maybe we should let the tax cuts for everyone else expire and get some real money....about 4:1. Imagine all the things Obama could waste that kind of dough on. I've got a feeling you libs are just salivating at the idea of having another $400B/yr to redistribute.”

“Don't you pay taxes, Robyn? If you do, and if the tax cuts are allowed to expire, you'll realize it's just just billionaires that benefit.”

Pink Stuff: Little Girl In Toy Store Rails Against Gender Stereotypes (VIDEO)

Commented Dec 26, 2011 at 23:17:51 in Comedy

“Obviously imitating a parent's rant. Poor child will grow up feeling guilty if she likes pink or princesses stuff. We work WAY too hard at molding our children instead of allowing them to blossom naturally.”

Michelle Thomas Stewart on Dec 27, 2011 at 05:01:23

“I respectfully disagree. As a child I was encouraged, as it seems most girls are, to love pink. My room was decorated in pink, I was bought pink clothes. I HATED it. I was encouraged to be a "girly girl" in frilly dresses and tights. I did enjoy dressing up and playing with dolls, etc. I was also a tomboy. It was just as likely to find me up a tree somewhere, or shooting BB guns with the boys, my tights covered in grass stains and tears! My thoughts echoed this video, with no external influence whatsoever. I don't see anything wrong with little girls, or boys for that matter, being able to enjoy both sides of things! In my opinion the issue is the opposite of what you claim. So many little girls are taught that they should be tiny pink princesses, and heaven forbid they step outside the stereotypical box - THAT is where the guilt comes in. My daughters are given freedom to express themselves, and that means that their Barbie may just be riding around with Spiderman in a blue monster truck at any given time! I'm proud to be the type of woman that can glam up in formal wear when it's needed, and rock out jeans and tennis shoes while playing in the mud when it suits me. I think that's called well-rounded. My kids are allowed to blossom through choices!”

What Is it About Animal Rights That Brings Out the Worst in People?

Commented Oct 30, 2012 at 00:56:08 in Politics

“Add ASPCAto that list. They run ads showing puppies and kittens with this statement: "Until there are no more." How can anyone mistake that for animal advocacy?”

Jeremy Bursac on Oct 30, 2012 at 15:19:24

“The missing context here, from your post and from this deeply toxic writer's column, is that they mean until there are no more unwanted, "excess" animals in shelters.”

Is It Curtains For The Apostrophe?

Is It Curtains For The Apostrophe?

Commented Nov 6, 2011 at 06:03:26 in Books

“Some people in America are inserting apostrophes in their children's names in an effort to seem sophisticated, I'm guessing.

My own personal apostrophe confusion is where to put the apostrophe in the possessive form of "children." Also, I never place punctuation between quotation marks, as demonstrated in the previous sentence, without feeling awkward.”

Herman Cain Smoking Ad Slammed As Glorifying Smoking

Commented Nov 6, 2011 at 01:18:12 in Politics

“The point of this ad is to appeal to people who want to do as they please no matter how it impacts others, whether it is peeing in a public pool, polluting our air to run their factories, aborting babies or forcing others to breathe their smoke at work all day every day. If Cain is elected, it will be a victory for selfish pigs everywhere,”

The Other First Responders: How Teachers Dealt With 9/11 Unfolding In Their Classrooms

Commented Sep 11, 2011 at 18:06:05 in Education

“As the parent of a 21 year old, I can see how impacted those who are now entering adulthood were by the events of and the national trauma surrounding 9/11. They grew up feeling so vulnerable, whereas my generation grew up feeling invulnerable as Americans. They see our entire social structure collapsing and are just now old enough to have any political power at all. It will be interesting to see how they change things when there are enough of them to take control of the nation. I hope they have more wisdom than we've exhibited in the past 30 years or so and that there is something left for them to work with!”
How Does God Respond To Corruption And Violence?

How Does God Respond To Corruption And Violence?

Commented Mar 1, 2010 at 03:54:16 in Healthy Living

“Notice, God did not require anyone to die... He provided plenty of warning for them to stop being so evil and an ark for those who chose to respond to that warning. I believe your analogy of how we reap the consequences of our irresponsible behavior is apt... pollution, global warming, etc. God doesn't usually just rescue us, purge the results of our sins, and then let us go free with no consequences. He provides a warning and a way... and when we don't respond, we usually experience the consequence we invited by our own behavior. Sadly, we bring those consequences upon others, including people who have never even been born. If I were God, I might be tempted to wipe the slate clean occasionally, giving future generations a chance to escape the consequences of the "sins of the fathers." Considering He asks nothing of us that is not possible if we would work together instead of just living for ME and living for THE MOMENT, I'm not so sure we'd have the right to judge Him for it if He did. After all... He does give us the brains to work together and leave this world a better place than we found it. He ALWAYS sends us Noahs and arks and Moses to part the seas... if we miss the boat... we chose to miss it.”

FatherWolf on Mar 2, 2010 at 21:23:35

“All the evil small children & babies?

All the evil unborn fetuses of evil mothers?

All the animals who weren't lucky enough to be selected to go into the Ark?

(BTW - The Bible identifies Noah as a good man, but says nothing about his sons or their wivew being any less wicked than everyone else.)”

“I'm glad you're not my mom.

See, even if I had warned them and warned them that they shouldn't go boating without a life vest, I wouldn't let my kid drown if they fell in. Your god just stands there and watches and says "I told you so."

But you think that's a good Father.”

Meg Whitman Week -- Monday: Meg Actually Gives an Interview

Commented May 12, 2009 at 00:44:08 in Politics

“Meg Whitman's policies on eBay demonstrated that she would always promote BIG BUSINESS at the expense of individuals or small business and stop at nothing to intimidate and discriminate against anyone with whom she disagreed.

Under her leadership, "the world's largest yard sale," became a place where only mega-sellers bringing in tons of cheap imports could succeed, pornography flourished, free speech was abolished, and freedom educational choice was censored. People had their accounts closed after receiving harsh emails and phone calls from eBay representatives (for something as innocent as selling a 1965 Dick and Jane's teacher's manual). The "little guy" selling last year's children's clothing or school books to help buy new ones could barely break even, much less profit.

I'm sure people from other interest groups could tell their own horror stories. What I share represents only those things I personally experienced and witnessed.

While evaluating the candidates during the 2008 presidential campaign I discovered Meg Whitman was on John McCain's "most respected and admired list. " I knew then I could not vote for him, no matter his stand on other issues. That Meg was reported to be on his "short list" for a VP terrified me. I knew anyone who admired Meg was either totally uninformed, stupid, or didn't give a flip about the American public's well being.

I fervently PRAY Meg Whitman will NEVER have any high office in our country.”
