Get Your Sliders... While You Still Can

This is it, dammit. I hate Obama and this Congress with the white-hot fury of a thousand suns.

From this source:


The Columbus-based family owned restaurant chain – known for serving small square hamburgers called “sliders” – says a single provision in the bill will eat up roughly 55 percent of its yearly net income after 2014.
Starting that year, the bill levies a $3,000-per-employee penalty on companies whose workers pay more than 9.5 percent of household income in premiums for company-provided insurance.
White Castle, which currently provides insurance to all of its full-time workers and picks up 70 to 89 percent of their premium costs, believes it will likely end up paying those penalties. The financial hit will make it hard for the company to maintain its 421 restaurants, let alone create new jobs, says company spokesman Jamie Richardson. White Castle employs more than 10,000 people nationwide, and more than 1,200 in Ohio.

Leave my sliders alone, assholes. I'll stop eating them after I have a deadly heart attack caused by grease consumption. And you know what? I'LL HAVE DIED HAPPY!!!

And stop trying to kill jobs! Especially for a company that picks up SO MUCH of the cost of their worker's insurance; aren't you leftists supposed to CARE about the working class?

Yeah, right. The all-knowing Nanny State will make us thin one way or another... Whether it means getting rid of sliders, or that we will be unemployed and therefore unable to buy any food.

They want to take it all away from us.

I don't think people are truly aware of what is to come with this health reform disaster...

Somebody stop these monsters! It won't stop at White Castle (Krystals here in Florida). Obamanomics will spread like a cancer across the land. That is the plan. Always has been.

USA: It seems that anything enjoyable must go away. God Himself forbid that we decide how to moderate ourselves.

Jeff: If the gov't 'insures' you, they can then tell you what and how much of it to put into your body. Why on Earth don't people GET IT?!?

Cube: It is regulation of every aspect of our lives. Pretty soon the gov't will want to know how often we go to the bathroom and how many squares we're using...

I have to restrain myself from leaving a comment on this one, Brooke. It wouldn't be a nice one. It might even gross some people out. So, I'll just let this one go and kick my Shitzu instead.

You guys are missing the big picture here.

These employees will be laid off. We will have an increase in recipients of unemployment benefits. Unemployment benefits help stimulate the economy.

This may actually help the economy.

Don't any of you listen to Nancy Pelosi?

Hitler was a health-food freak too. Gotta keep the working masses healthy so as to keep the power centralized, you know.

Chuck has voiced an important point about the lay offs.

I can't eat those Gut Grenades. I carry them by the pallet-load in my freezer at work and I had to stop eating 'em. The onions are just soo pervasive. Aftre the first couple times I felt like I was eating a microwaved onion that had been briefly wiped with burger grease.

Can we go back to being America yet? I've just been reading blogs and everybody's got a worst story than the one before. HELP!
This administration is in PUNISHMENT MODE, People! Some of us are WHITE and CONSERVATIVE and PATRIOTIC and (gasp!) CHRISTIAN...we will PAY!

Brooke said...

You all are spot on, as usual! :)

Microwaved sliders suck. You've got to get them from White Castle and they must be consumed asap!

White Castle is just ONE of who knows how many businesses that will be forced to close up shop. 2014 is NOT going to be a good year unless REAL conservatives get elected this November and clean this mess up!!!
