Yesterday Twitchy reported that the unhinged Left was targeting Applebees because one monstrous franchisee may implement a hiring freeze to deal with the financial realities of Obamacare. Today, the target is Papa Johns CEO John Schnatter.

North Korea-Run Restaurants Spread Propaganda and Kimchi Across Asia By Sebastian Strangio

TGI Friday's meets DPRK propaganda center, the state-owned Pyongyang Cafés provide kitschy entrainment and much-needed revenues for the regime back home
Waitresses perform for diners at the Pyongyang Restaurant in Phnom Penh. By Sebastian Strangio VLADIVOSTOK, Russia and SEOUL, South Korea -- The Pyongyang Café sits at 58B Verkhneportovaya Street, a short walk from the twinkling lights of Vladivostok's container port. Patrons in this east Russian city, the home of the Pacific Fleet, are greeted at the door by pretty Korean waitresses, who take their coats and usher them into small booths with pine tables and lashings of plastic foliage. From a separate area of the restaurant -- reserved for Koreans, one waitress tells me -- comes the muffled sound of a karaoke machine, the same song warbling on repeatedly. After a bottle of Russian beer, a plate of dumplings, and a tasty bowl of bibimbap, Korea's national rice dish, I hand over a wad of rubles equivalent to about $35.
Among the city's growing cohort of Korean restaurants, Pyongyang Café has an unusual claim to fame. It is run by the North Korean government, part of a far-flung chain of restaurants that funnels much-needed foreign exchange to the ailing regime in Pyongyang. Andrey Kalachinsky, a veteran journalist and local analyst, said that in the Soviet era, when Vladivostok was a closed military city, the Pyongyang Café was the only foreign eatery in town -- a symbol of the political and economic ties between the Soviet Union and Marshal Kim Il-Sung's Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
Correct, what started as a “perk” to get around Fed control of wages during WWII, is now a “right”???
Extra vacation time, company cars, etc, were all part of that.
Yeah, that’s why it will be funny to see this week’s first time unemployment claims. Probably drop by 30,000.
So the Libs are finally acknowledging that Obamacare is costing money rather than saving money.
“A revolution is in the making, the feds dont know it yet, or expect everyone to rollover and keep taking it in the you know where.”
Oh, the feds know it. That’s why the feds are buying up ammo in huge numbers, and why they are champing at the bit to enact more gun bans. The feds are scared (which is a good thing). Remember the words of Thomas Jefferson: “When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. But when the government fears the people, there is freedom.”
It doesn’t work that well when you consider that the fewer hours an employee works - the less he/she pays in taxes, which results in less revenue for the feds. That results in less money coming in to support the takers in society, so at some point they get cut off.
Sounds good to me.
The libs should boycott the root cause of the problem - the socialistic health care law their “messiah” rammed through. A company with a small margin like pizza sales, simply cannot afford 0bamacare, unless the libs are willing to pay around double the current price for a pizza.
I call for a boycott of Liberals. Don’t be their friends. Don’t do business with them. If they are your employees, fire them. It’s time for the Economic Civil War!
“Theyre going to have a lot of businesses to boycott.”
Seeing as how the real target is all forms of capitalism, I suspect you’re right.
To Libs . . . make your own damn pizza.
Last night I suggested that we need another Chick-fil-A day to show conservative solidarity. Perhaps instead we need a Papa John’s day to shove it up liberals’ asses. I’m sick of these entitled assholes getting jealous of others’ hard work and sacrifice.
Guess what I ordered for dinner?? Large Papa John’s pie with extra cheese and grilled chicken. Cheese was the YUM! I’m stuffed.
I asked the delivery kid if he had heard about the “boycott” of Papa John’s and he looked at me with a lost “duuhhh???” and shook his head. I handed him a $20 bill, told him to look it up and to keep the change ... and to tell his manager that I fully support Papa John’s.
What else can we do that would make the liberals boycott this whole country? Especially on voting day.
I was lurking on DU, cant post there got busted and banned yrs ago, anyhow their thread on this, most of them that are going to boycott Papa Johns also put in their posts that they hate his pizza and never eat it anyhow, so their boycott is going to have a pretty hard time affecting that business
The rational response would be to go buy more so the reduction would be less likely. But no, they're going to intentionally hurt the object of their concern. Brilliant! That’ll show ‘em!
Why not? If they won’t support Obama, they should just be out of business altogether.
Where do these people come from?
