It's been a while since I bought a Papa John's pizza, but the next time I do I will be sure to pay in dimes.  :lulz:

 :? This will send a message how?

Maybe if everyone mailed a dime to the CEO it would send a message.

As long as the CEO is getting a steady stream of dimes he won't give a flying fuck what anyone thinks.


That's why he can spout stupid shit at will.

These are both good points, but boycotting them would hurt employees, too.

On the other hand it creates more jobs in the places you do spend money.

Well and also spending money at locally owned eateries is more likely to keep money within and building the local economy. 


But honestly, at least with the Papa John's guy, he seems like he's just being a loud blowhard asshat.  The best thing to do is not to give him that National stage bullhorn.  (I'm talking to you American media asshats!)

I'd rather know. We never eat Papa John's anyway, as their food is shit and we have an excellent local chain right next door, but I'd rather know who to boycott.

Boycotting them won't really hurt employees, though, because people who won't eat there will simply eat elsewhere and the jobs will be redistributed.

My thought is that if everyone who isn't eating there anymore sent the CEO a dime, he would have a physical manifestation of how much business he was losing. It would be a satisfyingly insulting way of flipping him off. :lol:

I just broke brains by showing the Lifeline Assistance Program was created by Reagan, not Obama.

Seriously, it stunned this Libertarian cunt into silence.

I use that to get ridof Libertarians on facebook. They send me a nasty PM, unfriend me and go right on posting about Obamaphones.  :lulz: :lulz:

Let's see - I showed you a video where people aren't getting ONE phone - they're getting SEVERAL. #oops

Then I mentioned people who maybe shouldn't be receiving entitlements and you say it's "racist" - why is that Stella? I didn't mention race, now did I? #oops

It just so happens that the people I know who abuse the system are white and as far as those at WalMart etc, could be white black or brown. But I'm a racist. Got it. Jim Crow and shit, right on.

You on the other hand are either a moron or a liar - I suspect both. Have fun with your like-minded buddies. Adios!

Best part: that government project was started under Bush.  You know, the once and former God Emperor sent to save Humanity, who failed so badly that he has been wiped entirely from the modern conservative memory.

Consistent conservatives, like Daniel Larison, criticized Bush for the program at the time and criticized Obama for continuing it, and then criticized conservative propagandists who tried to make out that Obama started the whole thing.  But the likes of Daniel Larison are very rare, unfortunately.
"The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before? Only the Logos allows one to mitigate that slavery. Only knowing the sources of thought and action allows us to own our thoughts and our actions, to throw off the yoke of circumstance."

When I was arguing with that guy I did some googling and found that some of this Lifeline stuff started under Reaganchrist.

Get me a mailing addy.  :lulz:

I posted a link on facebook the other day saying that there was a black Friday boycott planned for WalMart.

Somebody asked me how that helps WalMart employees. WELL, LET'S SEE:

They're typically doing the work of at least three people (ever notice how WallyWerld always has 20 odd registers and never more than 3 or 4 open?) and they aren't paid commission, so the less sold, the easier it is for them to earn their cheapass paycheck

~AND~

Black Friday is living hell at ANY retail establishment. It sucks at RADIOSHACK.

So even if not enough people boycott to make a dent (which they won't) EVERY MOTHERFUCKER THAT STAYS AWAY MAKES THE DAY THAT MUCH EASIER.

Shit, I never shop on Black Friday, anyway...  Stores are full of assholes who will kill a motherfucker for a buck off a toaster, and I'm still in an "I just stuffed myself so full of turkey I can't move" happy place.  I've worked retail, having to call security to bust up a fistfight over the last whateverthefuck is a pain in the ass.

I hate to even leave my house between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Although, since I celebrate the solstice, there's this hilariously surreal post-Yule gap where I'm all relieved it's over and everyone else is still all stressing about Christmas, it's pretty hilarious. On Christmas I used to hang out with my best friend who is Jewish, but now that she's married a Catholic I need to find some other heathen unbeliever to hang out with.
