Pizza. Its whats for lunch (or dinner) today, at least for many Americans who will support Papa Johns pizza chain to counter liberal calls to boycott the business.
National Papa Johns Appreciation Day has been declared with a Facebook page as word has spread after liberals took offense to founder and owner John Schnatters remarks concerning Obamacare and its affect on his business. From Fox News:
Daniel Wetter is just 16 years old, but his plan to support pizza chain Papa Johns amid a backlash of liberal criticism is no pie-in-the-sky idea.
Wetter is part of an upstart group called Rebooting America that is proposing that Friday be a national day of appreciation for the pizza chain, whose chief executive officer is being attacked for saying employees hours might be cut to cover the cost of implementing their health insurance under ObamaCare.
The Dayton Daily News noted the event:
The controversy began with comments made by Papa Johns owner John Schnatter that he would raise prices and cut employees hours to pay for costs associated with the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Those comments prompted calls for a boycott, which in turn triggered a call for a National Papa Johns Appreciation Day today.
Papa Johns has been targeted by the left for a boycott, for simply articulating that ObamaCare would hurt profits and force cutbacks in employee hours, says the National Papa Johns Appreciation Day Facebook event page. Stand up to this nonsensical and illogical action and support Papa Johns this Friday! More than 17,400 Facebook users had indicated they were going to the Papa Johns event as of late Thursday afternoon.
Dennys, Olive Garden, and Applebees restaurants have also expressed concern that costs will go up to counter the now-unstoppable Obamacare. Though warnings had been issued since the overreaching government health care bill was passed, the reelection of President Barack Obama assured that Obamacare would become the law of the land.
Now the dominoes have begun to fall as the financial reality begins to hit not only businesses but also consumers who will feel the bite in their wallets. For some, one way to protest will be taking time today to munch on Papa Johns pizza and cinnapies.
My favorite. I love the garlic butter sau
Does anyone have a list of what businesses are GOP friendly? We don’t have a Papa John’s here. Small town. I don’t ever, ever buy Pepsi, because of their stupid logo. We need a list.
Domino's is next?
Never tried it. Gunna on on your recommendation today.
LOL, I appreciate sarcasm!
We have Papa John’s for dinner every Friday.
Brought to you by the commie Libtards. LOL!
Wash your hands after.

On Fantasy Island, business owners pay taxes and expenses out of their own pockets. Everywhere else in the world, it is the consumer who pays these costs through increased product and service prices. Liberals really do need to get a grip.
Kudos to Papa John! I’d say John Schnatter has a real knack for marketing.
Pizza for lunch AND dinner! LOVE their thin crust!!
I should say my favorite of the chains.
There are none. And I'll tell you why...
Look at a list of corporate giants. They give handsomely to both sides. They hedge their investments.
LOL, and thanks for the list. For years now, I avoid buying things based on political bent, if I know. We went to our first movie in over 5 years this fall. Guess? 2016!
True! It’s hard, yet possible in some cases.
I’ll be having my first Papa John’s pizza for one or more meals today. Looking forward to it.
Same here! But it’s been longer than that for us. I think the last movie we went to was “Oh Brother”.
We ment to see “Atlas Shrugged” when it was here but couldn’t go then and now it’s nowhere close. Will watch when it comes out on Vudu or Pay Per View...
I know it’s a small thing, but when Hollywood libs shoot their mouths off, I feel the need not to reward them. Same with music. So if I know a business leans a certain way we go out of our way to support or not. I am not to happy with Sam Walton’s kid, but...
Headed out for a light lunch shortly.
I think Cracker Barrel is.
Sorry,cant stand the taste of Papa Johns,never enough toppings,sauce,or cheese to even cover the top.We refuse to eat it preferring instead to buy from a mom and pop pizza place.
Just finished off their large double bacon and 6 cheese pizza, delicious. I was a virgin, had never done Papa John until today.
Get one of those cinnamon pizza things...It’s like a flattened Cinnabon.
I pick up my order of 2 pizzas in an hour
Let them eat Twinkies.
Exactly what I just ordered ... the double bacon and 6-cheese with a cinnapie for dessert. Leftovers for later ... YUM!
Understandible. It’s not my favorite either. It’s greasier than most pizzas I’ve had.
