The War On Business Continues: Papa John’s Pizza
Mark Cuban may think that ObamaCare is helping to create competition:
Competition is a beautiful thing – Papa John’s Obamacare Price Hike Cheered By Ian’s Pizza In Wisconsin huff.to/ZAEilS

For many, the implications of ObamaCare on businesses are a tragedy — not something to celebrate.
Democracy in Action has a petition at SignOn.org (a division of the always centrist and neutral MoveOn.org) to tell Papa John’s Pizza that the $0.14 per pizza that ObamaCare will cost the company should be manageable because they give away two million pizzas per year. Of course, what these leftist thugs fail to understand is that those pizzas can be written off as advertising or marketing, and they help to build Papa John’s Pizza’s business. They are not just give-aways. But of course, the leftists who find a problem with Papa John’s concerns certainly cannot understand how a business works, fights to stay alive or manages its cash flow. The cost per pizza will be passed down partially to the consumer, but Papa John’s may also move all of its employees to schedules that are under 30 hours per week so that they avoid the requirements under ObamaCare.
America did it once with Chick-fil-A, and she will do it again with Papa John’s. Today is Papa John’s Appreciation Day, so order your pizza, and tweet out the pictures using #IStandWithPapaJohns or #ISupportPapaJohns — let the world know that you are fighting back against the bullying from the left. Only militant, leftist thuggery would promote boycotting a company that may go under, or striking to shut down a company altogether (see Hostess Brands).
The Twitterverse Reaction
Even people who do not love the pizza are supporting Papa John’s today:
Go to papa johns, I hate the pizza but I might even have to have some today#IStandWithPapaJohns

Others are celebrating their act of defiance by order Papa John’s:

For those of you not on Twitter, “LWNJ” is short for “left-wing nut job.”
Just as she did for Chick-fil-A, Dana Loesch of The Dana Loesch Radio Show ordered Papa John’s for her staff today:
Ordered Papa John’s for the staff today, now ordering their wings for tonight. MMMM FREEDOM

Breitbart’s John Nolte is in on the Papa John’s Pizza Appreciation Day, too:
So glad libs attack places like papa johns & chick-fila where support means good eating. Lets hope they never go after kale.
— John Nolte(@NolteNC) November 17, 2012
But this goes to show you just how the libs can really be. They haven’t quite caught on to the fact that when they boycott a company doing the right thing, Americans will pull together to support that corporation. Instead, they would rather cause problems:
Some leftists are recommending to call Papa Johns order ten pizzas and not pick them up.Shows you their tolerance.Disgusting! #P2
