    For those of you who are Democrats and don't want to support Republican politics, thought you might want to know that the founder of Papa Johns Pizza had a fundraiser for Mitt Romney.

    I don't eat pizza much anymore, but know for sure I won't be eating a Papa Johns!

    I am always happy to support boycotts of businesses I never went to in the first place.

    From what I have heard, it may be a good way for Mitten to lose votes. I have heard that Papa John can't cook his way out of a pizza box.

    Man, in my small town it's between Papa John's and Pizza Hut, and I hate Pizza Hut...

    So, my Pizza Friday is usually Papa John's.

    However, Little Caesar's is opening soon. So, it looks like I will be switching my cheat day up some. That's good, it was time.

    Make your own! It's easy and you can get creative with it. Let me know if you need a recipe.

    Fcuk Mitt! Boycott everything Republican.

    I'm fortunate - Edmonds, Wa has two very good home-owned local pizza joints. and they're GOOD! I never go to a chain restaurant any more.

    As The Lord Your God, I can let you in on a little secret. The only good pizza on all of your miserable little planet is made on 8th St in Manhattan. I'm not dropping any names, I'm not like that, but if you're in search of good pizza, start at one end of the street and walk to the other, you'll find it.

    I am adding an 11th Commandment to the original 10.

    Though shallt not consume chain pizza for it is an abomination before the Lord. I've given up on stoning, but I'll give you a lifetime case of diarrhea if you disobey this command.

    Right? I mean, I guess if you live in a tiny town, that might be your only option but I doubt it.

    I think a lot of has to do with a place like Papa Johns or Little Caesars $5 pizzas for an event or meeting at work or school or something like a girl scout troop or youth soccer team. You can feed a lot of people for usually a lot cheaper than an independent pizzeria.

    The Huffington Post did not suggest a boycott, apparently that honor falls to the RJ OP. Free country, certainly entitled to spend your money where you want and suggest others do the same. Two points:

    1. The article notes the affair was $1,000 per head, and mocks the whole thing because of the wealth involved. Obama is coming to a fundraiser at George Clooney's house in Studio City, and reportedly some will contribute $40,000 per head. Just to keep things in perspective.

    2. The boycotts can work both ways, and can increase the polarization. I think the better response, which will more likely involve fair-minded independents who don't like to see intimidation, is to encourage people to support Papa Johns in a big way. Boycotts can have the opposite effect. I will be posting this boycott plan on several conservative oriented forums and ask that they spread the word. Will also do the same on some major conservative sites/blogs.

    Hmm. 1) Boycotts don't actually work (ask Rush Limbaugh or the Walt Disney corporation), 2) Papa John's is delicious and 3) Mitt Romney... meh.

    It's just easier this way, because Target has nice things and Bank of America (One of Mitt's largest contributors) has lots of branches everywhere.

    Isn't Obama's convention speech being hosted by Bank of America in the Bank of America Stadium?

    Wow. A "conservative" that actually seems to think the Left is increasing polarization. Sorry, but I think Governor Vaginal Probe, Anti-Gay Marriage, Tax-The-Poor / Corporate Welfare Republicans have done a lot more toward polarizing the country.

    At what point do you think the Left should not fight back? Should we just let you guys walk all over us? I'm done with that shite.

    Actually, that's one of the problems with these kind of boycotts, many companies give to both candidates, but the Bank of America Stadium is named that because Bank of America purchased the naming rights, they don't own the stadium.
