    Re: Teabaggers are destroying the GOP

    JoeMama,

    I'd argue with you about Virginia being a brain-dead state. If a close vote happens any time again in the near future, we might be seeing Virginia becoming a swing state. Northerner's are spreading south and that brings lots of liberals. North Carolina almost went to Obama and he came out FOR gay marriage in a state that passed a constitutional amendment against it. And if we're lucky, Florida will become irrelevant as more baby-boomers die.

    I don't know what you mean about the Republicans becoming marginalized. We might become a permanent minority again, like after World War II until Newt Gingrich. I'd actually hate to go back to those days just because some religious nut-jobs managed to win us the White House for a President one time and won us the House twice.

    If we stuck to our real message instead of incorporating their message about religion into it, I think we'd have a chance to break even or even dominate at times.

    Re: Teabaggers are destroying the GOP

    The Party sold its soul years ago! They hate govt, they hate govt helping people!
    They have signed pledges to Grover Norquist to help destroy it ("drown it in a bathtub").

    The electorate quite clearly has rejected that message and embraced Obama's message!!

    The right wants more tax breaks for the .01%, the dems are saying no, the people have spoken , the answer is NO 332-206!

    Re: Teabaggers are destroying the GOP

    This is gonna be fun to watch!!!


    "Hi, I'm John Schnattner, CEO of Papa Johns, with an important message to my loyal customers.
    "Now, as you know, the current Adminsitartion has enacted draconian legislation under the name of 'Health Care Reform' designed to crush small business owners such as myself. I had hoped that the American People would see fit to elect a more prudent man willing to obliterate Obamacare on Day One, thus saving businessmen like myself from utter bankruptcy and total anhililation. Unfortunately, that was not to be.
    "Since this is the case, I have no other option but to cut my staff and reduce the hours of the employees I retain so that I will not have to pay them the 'benefits' demanded by this pernicious legislation.
    (cont'd...>)

    "But to make this work, friends, I will need your help. Currently, I have enough employees on my payroll to meet customer demand. If I reduce their hours, they will be unable to serve you all and our quality will go down; or they will have to work harder and might concievably demand higher wages, which would be even worse than Obamacare.
    "So I am asking you, my loyal Papa John's customers, to stop buying my pizzas. If we can reduce demand, I won't need as many employees and I will be able to once again manage my payroll. True, fewer customers means less profit; but the less profit I make, the less of it I have to pay to Obama's taxes.
    "So please, for God's sake, buy pizza someplace else.
    "Thank you."

    Memo to Papa John: Make a better product and you won't have the problem.

    You've given me yet another reason why I will NEVER buy a pizza from you...the most important reason being, there's no store of yours close to my home. And, besides, this is a pizza city where we prefer local over national chains. I can't remember the last time my family or I bought pizza from a chain(in the U.S.; different story in Canada). LaNova has a better reputation than your price of crap chain anyway. Hell, my corner pizzeria has a better rep!

    I've never eaten a PJP. Good for me. Also, today, gluten free for one whole year! Gastro-elation!

    The only good part of their pizza is the little pepper that comes with it. I don't care for them. Plus, I live in KC and we have Minsky's. Sure its not a Chicago, NYC, or Buffalo pizza, but its great and locally owned.

    How does Pappa John qualify for 'small' business owner?

    Ummm...You guys didn't notice the tags underneath the article, did you?

    Granted, the PJ CEO made previous statements regarding passing on the costs of health care to his employees and customers, but he's also said..."Schnatter went on to say he's neither in support of, nor against the Affordable Care Act, even admitting that "the good news is 100 percent of the population is going to have health insurance.”

    If you had just a minute to breathe and they granted you one final wish would you ask for something like another chance?

    Re: Teabaggers are destroying the GOP

    The problem is, as I seeit, is that we're still paying for 9/11.

    The DHS created under Bush (with a lot of Dem prompting) is going to haunt us for some time. Then there's the bailouts from Bush and Obama, as well as the healthcare act.

    Smaller government?

    I think it would be tantamount to putting toothpaste back in the tube.

    That's depressing. However, the CBO is forecasting a $640B deficit for this year.

    well its a fun offseason at least.

    Highly inappropriate for Chris Christie to be yukking it up on Saturday Night Live while there are people still without power.

    You'll feel better once you confess that you're just angry that Hurricane Sandy didn't turn into the apocalyptic superstorm you were expecting. I mean all those MRE's, bunker expansions, wood stoves, and NBC protection suits and gasmasks and yet you didn't get the chance to use them.

    And as I've repeated over and over again I wont waste my vote that way. Any party that tries to build from the top floor down is never going to be legitimate. You know that as well as I do. They are pissing in the wind and have been for years and will continue to do so.
    COMING SOON...
