Here's Why Red Lobster Is Dying

Here's Why Red Lobster Is Dying

Commented May 18, 2014 at 14:15:03 in Business

“I walked into a Red Lobster recently b/c it had been renovated on the outside, but on the inside, it was still hideous! Moreover, it literally stunk (or is that stank?). Why do restaurants use carpeting? Carpeting traps dirt, and spilled food and drinks, which of course becomes rancid, and ensures a constant terrible smell, which to not very appetizing. I turned right around and walked out.”

“This article is very disingenuous. In fact, most of the Asians living in "poverty" are recent immigrants!! What do you expect? Are they supposed to become prosperous overnight? Just give them time -- without a doubt their children and grandchildren will be doing very well. Moreover, they are already rich by the standards of their home countries! The problem is not with the Asians. It is with the chronically poor blacks.”

“Excuses, excuses, excuses -- endless excuses. Excuses may feel good, but they are a crutch that impedes true emancipation. If the evil white man really is the source of all their problems, isn't it pointless to expect whites to solve the problems? Blacks must solve the problem themselves.”

“ECON 101: resources are scarce. It's a question of choice and priorities. We prefer to prioritize the subsidization of perfectly able-bodied people through endless welfare programs, while we neglect the mentally ill.”

patsy12 on Nov 20, 2013 at 11:38:24

“PSYCH 101: Those "perfectly able-bodied people" on "welfare" and the neglected "mentally ill" are very often the same people.”

questforbalance on Nov 20, 2013 at 10:49:34

“Before you wrote this, did you even think or wonder whether a brief research on the topic and an interest in comprehensive analysis may actually lead to a conclusion that many on welfare may also have untreated mental health issues? Hmmm...perhaps thinking may be called for - rather than repeating mindless sound bites.”

Tom58 on Nov 20, 2013 at 10:39:11

“Man you know nothing of economics. Thanks for the laughs.

Why don't you start your education by looking at today's tax revenues as compared to the 1950's. For the top you will find their taxes are down 60%. For everyone else they are flat or increased.

Tpublicans cut funding for mental health care in the 80's (when Reagan destroyed the system) and have kept it artificially low since.

All that is need is to raise the top tax rates back to the level of the 90's. You remember the 90's...Democratic control, a surplus, and a booming economy.”

“The poor in our country have grown so fat, they could go months without food. I've seen shoppers at Walmart whose rear ends occupy the entire shopping isle. In some cases, their butts are so grossly obese, they actually knock food off the counters as they walk by.”

amanda6 on Oct 30, 2013 at 14:53:21

“niceguyari, are you making all kinds of assumptions, like the poor shop at Walmart, the poor are fat? Are you assuming the people you write about are on food stamps?”

sylvabugg2 on Oct 30, 2013 at 14:25:36

“While I agree that most are obese due to bad eating habits but when you consider that the more fattening food choices are usually the cheapest, there you go. Fresh is expensive, especially fresh fruits and veggies. Whereas chips, sodas, etc. are cheap in comparison. Also, there is a small group who are overweight due to health problems, I have heart problems and arthritis so it is hard for me to keep weight off because I can't do a lot of physical stuff. I walk, as often as I'm able and try to watch my diet, but it's very hard sometimes. Don't judge until you've walked a mile in their shoes.”

“The White House spin is positively Orwelian. I used to think this level of falsehood by a leader was just a thing of fiction, but it has become a reality with this administration.”

Joanne Giovenco on Oct 29, 2013 at 14:46:30

“The policies were cancelled probably because they did not meet the minimum standards of the ACA, so people will get better insurance by purchasing it through the ACA. Why would people want to keep insurance that didn't give them the benefits of the ACA? Depending on which state you live in, the premiums costs are very low. I was paying nearly $800/month for Cobra. For the same coverage through BC/BS, I now only have to pay $296--a $504 savings/month.”

“Arrogance is bad enough when it is justified. But when it is unjustified, it is positively nauseating. This is the case with Democrats and the economy, and healthcare in particular. They arrogantly believe they can micromanage the market. Hah, what a joke! If they can't manage a website, how will they efficiently manage, on an ongoing basis, the largest and most complex healthcare market on the planet? They are blinded by their ideology.”

Christopher Nagy on Oct 26, 2013 at 11:43:02

“Uh... probably because they aren't actually managing the healthcare? They are acting like middlemen, putting customers in contact with providers. In exchange for giving providers access to millions of new customers, the government stipulated the minimum amount of benefits those providers could offer their customers.

There is a reason politicians tread lightly around Medicare; senior citizens actually like their government-run healthcare. Tricare (run by the government) is still better than most civilian health care plans.

The problem isn't that healthcare is difficult to manage, it is that it is difficult to do when people are fighting you every step of the way because they are blinded by their ideology. If Healthcare.gov weren't forced to handle 30+ states who refused to build their own exchanges, this rollout would have been less flawed. Individual state exchanges are doing well. Hard to blame GOP intransigence on Democrats.”

In my observation, the primary difference was that the African Americans did not speak standard English. It occurred to me: this is what has held them back -- they never mastered English.”
