Not anger, or my hope would have been that you did experiance those things, not that you wouldn't. And for those truly in need, we should do what ever it takes. I don't call that socialism. You see I think that but for the grace of God there go I. I despise greed, and if I have 350 million dollars I don't need more. I need to share with those who help me make that money. Without them I make nothing. We the people on the floor doing the work, we make the product, we ship it out the door, not the millionaire sitting in the office, or out on the golf course. The fact that you help when you can is comendable. Perhaps I have misjudged you.
Anyone who does work or will work should be helped. My problem is supporting those who won't work, keep reproducing, and suck up millions on welfare and Medicaid. Funny how much criticism Romney and the birthers took but no one dares to say anything about illegal immigrants with six or seven kids. Talk about birthers. I truly saw a lady in my doctor's office one time who had so many kids with her she had to carry all her Medicaid papers in a 3 ring binder.

Yep... these pizza workers you're talking about standing up for... you would probably not even acknowledge if you passed them in the street.

So much love for these pizza workers you've got... but no love for the man who employs them.

Papa John, despite what Obama thinks, spent DECADES building his business... paying all the taxes he is required to pay... hundreds of millions of dollars in taxes he has paid... he has contributed to society and probably fed your family many times.

If it were not for people like Papa John, the unemployment figures would be a whole hell of a lot worse.

If you want to stand up for Americans... try standing up for people like Papa John.

How backwards.Maybe Papa John should make all of his pizzas himself...since he's so great and all.A fifty something year old lady who worked as a school crossing guard years ago in Houston...threw two kids out of the path of a drunk driver going ninety miles an hour....this left her no chance..to get out of the way...herself..I'll stand up for people like that.You can stand up for"heroes"like Papa John.

You're talking apples and oranges... obviously you're craw-fishing out of this debate.

The only Americans you will stand up for are those who expect handouts... like free medical care on someone else's tab.

You would not even think of standing up for someone who has built a business from the ground up, employs 10's of thousands of people and pays millions in taxes every year... no... no need to stand up for the people who keep America moving.

No he isn't, and the people who get paid by the hour are the ones who keep America moving. Let PaPa John, Donald Trump, and the rest do the labor and see how long everything last. We stand up for working people. How could anyone ever think you were intelligent? Republican puppet. Why don't you just go kiss Mitt Romneys a$$? Nobody is going to crawfish on you, all you know how to do is whistle the Republican tune.

Try as I might I just don't see why a multiple millionaire needs you to stand up for him.Do you think his workers are expecting free handouts? Are you against the working class? I'm not talking about freeloaders man.

Ok moron.

I am not a Republican... I am a Ron Paul Democratic Republican American, get it right.

Without those people at top... who would pay those people at the bottom, you and your mouth?????

Typical Obama supporter, you want everything for free... then talk nasty about the people who pay for it.

Without those "multimillionaires" as you call them... the people who get up off their butts and make something out of themselves... where would the rest of us be????

We would be without the benefit of the billions and billions and billions of dollars in taxes people like Papa pay, we would be without the jobs they provide, we would be without the knowledge or the expertise it takes to organize people to create businesses like his.

But... you in all of your wisdom... want to take capital away from people like him, capital that he would use to fund more businesses, hire more people and eventually pay more taxes.

Don't you see even just a little bit of the folly from over taxing people like Papa John?

I am not a Mitt Romney supporter... never have been, but Like I said, Mitt Romney did not order the murder of American citizens without a trial or even a judge.

The first BROWN President... is the first President to assassinate BROWN people publicly... and then get re-elected by BROWN people!!!

Of course! But, as we can see, the wily Papa John has outfoxed the attempt to raise his taxes.unless Taxmegeddon kicks in.Then we all get it.However it seems to me we've been playing the"tax the rich less game"since Reagan, and they mostly just put it in overseas banks.Which is their undisputed right.But still.

Here's some more information about this petition:

Put an end to the destruction of unborn babies through Abortions.

women are now having abortions because they do not like the sex of the fetus. If they had to pay for those abortions we will see how quickly the abortions would diminish. The government is wasting millions of dollars, to permit women to act as prostitutes, and have no fear of becoming pregnant, for they can get an abortion. This act not only destroys the unborn child, but also destroys the woman that has them. Their minds, and morals will suffer because of an act sanctioned by the US Government.

It's not the Republicans fault... it's not the Democrats fault, it is ALL of our faults as we have let the Federal Government and the Establishment agenda take more and more control over our lives... and let them pass more and more laws giving them more and more power.

This kind of thing does not happen overnight, under one President.

It happens incrementally....15 cents by .15 cents.

Over decades and decades... they have increased our taxes bit by bit, much of what we are taxed is hidden in the price of the products we buy and pay even more taxes on using cash that we've already earned and paid taxes on, driving a car that you bought and paid taxes on, with hidden taxes(drivers licence, insurance, registration)back and forth to that job using fuel that is taxed and also contains still more hidden taxes!!

Papa John is right, they have ENOUGH taxes!!!

They need to cut some of that FAT!!!!

Like Hillary Clinton and here 150 member entourage that are being put up in the poshest of hotels for their wine tasting in Australia!!!

http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/national/exc...

She's WAY too busy to be bothered to testify about Benghazi!!

You're so worried about Papa John's .15 cents per pizza... but don't give a damn about Hillary spending millions on her friends on our tab!!!

Get a grip.

I know you intend well, but pick your battles a bit better!!!
