What is it that cannot be understood about Communism? The government becomes a weapon for the lame and lazy. As an American I have no representation in Washington. Only Socialist or Communist minded people that support such a government that is there now. These people will push us closer to a full Communism system. They will push till no part of the Ideals of Liberty and Freedom for all exist.
Communism. A system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single, often authoritarian party holds power, claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people.
b. The Marxist-Leninist version of Communist doctrine that advocates the overthrow of capitalism by the revolution of the proletariat.
Democratic socialism. General term for the political and economic theory that advocates a system of collective or government ownership and management of the means of production and distribution of goods. Because of the collective nature of socialism, it is to be contrasted to the doctrine of the sanctity of private property that characterizes capitalism. Where capitalism stresses competition and profit, socialism calls for cooperation and social service.
Both of these system promise one thing. All are slaves of the state to live or to be destroyed by the state.
Do Democrats advocate the government own, and manage the production and distribution of goods? Nope. So your charges of democrats being communist are just false.
This being false, just makes your rants look silly. Grow up and use the correct words for the situation. You sound like a fool otherwise. I just cannot take any post that uses the word communism as you do, seriously. It is such a distraction, I find it hard to focus on any of your concerns.

Team America huh? Haven't seen you pony up a check to pay in more taxes than what you specifically owe. You are on team America, right? Do your part.
How is one individual giving more than owed equated to teamwork? Maybe you do not understand the concept of 'teamwork'?

<quoted text>What happens to that employee being treated well, when the "coaxing" from the citizen, forces the business to close? In my opinion, when that happens, it's everyone's loss. From the business owner to the loss of revenue in the tax dollar. That includes the community, schools, etc...
Welcome to capitalism. In capitalism, if the business cannot produce more income than costs, it will go out of business. Now if you wish to tell me a business cannot provide health care and make money, then I will need some evidence. As we know, many businesses do this now and thrive. If you look at the best example of Obama care, you need only look to Massachusetts. Are businesses all closing down there? Nope.
If a business is running so close to cost/profit numbers that the added health care does cause it to shut down, that business would likely have shut down soon anyway from some other cause that reduced its profits.
Papa Johns is not running that close of profit numbers, so that business has no excuse to treat its employees poorly. It is clear, the motives of Papa Johns is pure greed.
Keep supporting that greed and we will all suffer.

<quoted text>I see all the republicans here cannot understand the differences between 'rights' and what is the right thing to do.
Papa John has the right to cut his employees hours if he wants. And I have the right to boycott his business. I have the right to organize others to do so. You see, I am using my rights to right his wrong. This is how capitalism works.
I am not advocating making his cutting hours illegal.
So I am not disputing his right to run his business as he pleases in this sense. I am just protesting his business because he is immoral in how he treats his employees.
How would you address a business that you felt was treating his employees poorly? Do you just do nothing? If so, then you are partly to blame for these problems.
Strangely, republicans do not understand a critical element of capitalism. And that is the power of the voting dollar.
If you are going to promote capitalism, then I suggest you use your voting dollar carefully to make the system work well. Buying without concern is why capitalism produced immoral businessmen.
Maybe you should read a book on libertarian theory.
Mike, you should articulate more clearly "rights" and the right thing to do and then your posts may not be confusing. If you want to boycott Papa John for using his "rights" and not do the right thing, go ahead, that's your "right". I think in the interest of fairness other businesses that treat their employees immorally should be researched. Mike, I understand your reason of having a beef with Papa John, but surely you're not so naive to think that all businesses treat their employees morally. None of us really know the wheeling and dealing that goes on in these big businesses. Again, business owners did not go into business to make money for the consumer, they went into business to make money for themselves. I think you have more of a problem with Papa John's wealth than you do his employees' health. You keep going back to numbers, how much his home is worth; do you have a story about employees that are going to lose their homes because of only working 30 hours a week? Correct me, will not Obamacare take care of these people that won't have health insurance? Mike, companies have been cutting hours to keep from paying benefit for years, heck the government even does it. I suggest you do as I do, if I think a place is hoodooing me as a consumer and their employees, I don't do business with them and I tell others what they're doing.

I've got to hear the answer to this one. The price of healthcare will actually increase. For the benefit of Mike, I didn't hear this on Fox News or Rush; I got it straight from the horse's mouth. Government healthcare providers are even having to decide where to cut on services provided to patients.

The City of Austin now desires to peacefully withdraw, secede, from the state of Texas.By the way i'm not a communist old boy.Neither am I a republican.Do you favor another American Civil War? Are your also aware that China.the must populous communist country on earth, is becoming more"capitalist"ever y day? Are you aware that things evolve, change, constantly? Are you totally inflexible in your thinking? If so, why?

<quoted text>Here you go again with drawing the line at his 'rights'. No one is disputing if it is his 'right'. What I am disputing is, what is the right thing to do? Is it right to cuts employee hours just to have such a large house? Is it moral? I would like to hear your opinion of its morality?
Your statement helps to prove my point. Republicans often think if it is not against the law, then their are no other boundaries in business.
AGAIN, I'm an Independent, my OPINION is if someone has acquired, through good business practices, a 150,000 square foot house and then because of the political change/policy, to keep what I have personally, I have to lay off people, then I will. I do not expect people to LOWER a lifestyle because of a policy set by someone else. I do not see this as a "moral" issue, I see it as a "political" issue. I will never change your mind and you will never change mine. I will give you my opinion on morals when it is not in reference to a political issue. Explain "boundaries" in business.

Who are you to pass judgement on what is or is not moral? If you don't like the way papajohns does business, you don't have to spend your money with them.
