Hmmm, following regulations isn’t your strong suit

Some attention has been paid to this declaration of pizza assembler and manufacturer — and like so many in his industry arch-conservative — John Schnatter:

Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter says that Obamacare will result in a $0.11 to $0.14 price increase per pizza, or $0.15 to $0.20 cents per order, Pizza Marketplace, a trade publication, reports

Oh poor you  — and your soon to be slightly less unfortunate employees.

Imagine, Mr. Schnatter how much you would have to pretend you had to raise prices if you followed the law across the board?

In mid-September, 2011, a federal court in Missouri granted conditional class certification in a lawsuit brought on behalf of all delivery drivers who have been employed by Papa John’s Pizza in the past three years. The suit alleges that Papa John’s did not pay its delivery drivers in accordance with federal and state minimum wage laws.

But then again, these folks had nothing to do with your success in your mind, or Mitt Romney’s — so why should they get paid like they are supposed to or get health care coverage?

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
