1 Prideful, Arrogant Marriage Equality Advocate  Thu, Nov 15, 2012 4:03:07pm

What did wingnut business owners do under Romney Care? And when the wingy wingnuts were coming up with Obamacare years ago as an alternative to leftist Universal healthcare where was the outrage?

Anything Obama proposed and got through, even if originally proposed and implemented by Republicans, is bad for America and must be stopped.

That's wingnut "thinking" for you.

Speaking of wingnuts, the HuffPost article alluded to what Metz's political leanings are, but without specifics. Schnatter held a well publicized fund raiser for Romney at his palace, but I know nothing - at least now - of where Metz may fall on the spectrum, but I can give a good educated guess.

Many of the CEO's and franchisees of chain and fast foot restaurants are hard core right wingers, though. Tom Monahan, the founder of Domino's Pizza, was well known for his anti-abortion views, and the current CEO of Domino's, J. Patrick Doyle, is said to be heavily involved in the tea party, but again I've seen no specifics.

At the end of the day, protecting profits at the expense of making employees a dime a dozen, is the mentality of these people, and it is truly despicable.

These bastards will never, ever, get my hard earned dollars again.

Dennys, PJs, Applebees, Dominoes. What's the connection?

Really, really crappy food, that's what.

In the long run, if their employees qualify for medicaid or can get their insurance from an exchange rather than having to stay at the same job to keep it, they'll be better off anyway. No-one should have to forego employment or business opportunities because they can't leave their job in order to stay insured.

I knew there was a reason I haven't eaten at Denny's for years, I just didn't know what it was. I also question how a restaurant chain like that can survive at all if it nets less than $175,000 per year per location, and is it true that part time employees must be covered by employer insurance?

Since Domino's reformulated their sauce, its actually edible. And Mongahan (a neo-Pharisee if there ever was one) doesn't own or run the enterprise anymore. Also a plus-they sell Coca-Cola.

After Walker attacked the teachers in WI, many wingnut business owners came crawling out of the woodwork. I try my best not to spend money at their businesses. Soon it seems, the only place I'll have left for my money is under my mattress.
