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?

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.

<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.

<quoted text>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.
You really should pick another business model to beat this drum on, Papa Johns are independently owned so you can not possibly know the numbers. They all have different business models, so you are specking in hypothetical circumstances. What is it you always point out to me, prove your points. The Papa Johns in my area is barely making it. I picked up a pizza last night and talked to the manager while I waited. He said that business is really starting to drop off.

<quoted text>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.
Of course, selectively using "parts" instead of the whole thing. Reread the communist manifesto, communism is more than just state run production or distribution of goods.

And that was probably happening long before the first mention of cutting hours.
