If there were any justice in the world, this photo would win a Pulitzer. Thoughts on a caption? I was thinking “Grandma always did have a sour look on her face after Grandpa got into the moonshine and started talking nonsense.” Also, too: somebody needs to do this to Lindsey Graham.

    Owner of 40 Denny’s restaurants to impose 5% surcharge for ObamaCare on customers’ bills

    A Florida restaurateur who operates roughly 40 Denny’s locations and five Hurricane Grill & Wings franchises in Florida, Virginia and Georgia intends to add a 5 percent surcharge to customers’ bills to offset costs from ObamaCare . . . .
    “People are trying to find ways to avoid the penalties and to avoid having to pay for ObamaCare,” John Metz told “Everyone’s looking for a way to not have to provide insurance for their employees. It’s essentially a huge tax on all us business people. . . .”
    To further offset the costs, Metz, who oversees roughly 1,200 employees as president and CEO of RREMC Restaurants, LLC, said he also will slash most of the staff’s time to fewer than 30 hours per week. That change will be announced to employees next month, he said.
    “It’s going to be a big issue for all of us — for my employees and for me,” said Metz, who has been in the industry since 1975. “The ones that are working more than 28 hours, they’re going to act as if I’m cutting their hours and they’ll have to find another job.”

    Oil Giant BP will plead guilty to criminal misconduct and pay the largest criminal penalty in U.S. history for the 2010 spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
    BP confirmed Thursday it will pay about $4.5 billion over six years to resolve federal criminal and Securities Exchange Act claims against the company.
    BP agreed to plead guilty to 11 felony counts related to the 11 deaths in the Deepwater Horizon rig explosion that triggered the gigantic oil spill. BP also will plead guilty to a felony count of obstruction of Congress and a pair of misdemeanor counts under the Clean Water Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
    BP also will be on probation for five years. U.S. law allows companies to be forbidden from contracting with the federal government; BP said it has not yet been disbarred from contracting with any federal agency.  Source

    The only Presidential ads I ever heard on the radio were Mitt Romney’s. I assumed the ads were really for the NH market, because they used Sen Ayotte as narrator.

I am guessing at least two thirds of his employees are going to blame him not Obama. Furthermore, I am guessing the vast majority of people are not going to care about an extra five percent at a freaking Dennys.

From that perspective, it’s good they are behaving like jerks now, before the rules for the next session are voted on.

You think just because these little cogs are working the machine that makes me all this money, it somehow obligates me to look after their livelihoods? You MONSTER!”

    The really sad thing is that employers actually need to be told to provide for their employees in the first place.

He is proposing holding “Watergate-style” hearings on the matter, with lots of witnesses and of course, lots of television cameras.

    But yesterday, when the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee received a classified briefing on the Benghazi issue, Mr. McCain was absent. His spokesman Brian Rogers blamed a “scheduling error.”

    his moron is just showing, nay advertising, that he stinks as a businessman.

    Exactly. That’s the problem with going Galt: what the hell businessperson, professional or “maker” would join a separatist community of their erstwhile rivals when, if they stayed in the real world, they would suddenly face less price-reducing competition overall regardless of the quality of what they produced?

    Me, I’m just fascinated with his choices and the language he uses to describe them, which suggest serious tendencies toward certain pathologies as well as a desire to run for office with a far right agenda sometime in the near future (the two likely have a lot of overlap).

    Metz has responded to something he doesn’t like, not with quiet cuts to spending or increases to price to actually offset costs (which it is in his best interests not to have broadcast) but by publicly announcing that he intends to explicitly harm his customers and employees (a month ahead of his official “announcement” no less!) until the Metz-perceived harm to Metz has disappeared.

    In the interview, Metz both bluntly announces that he will be cutting hours to “offset costs” and then preemptively complains that those whose hours will be cut are inevitably “going to act as if I’m cutting their hours”. He simultaneously takes credit for the act and preemptively insults anyone who might assign him responsibility for the act, or even acknowledge that it has happened.

    He also nakedly asserts that he is doing everything he can to prevent insuring his employees, and says it calmly as part of a sentence that assigns that point of view to every business owner.

    People whose minds work like that bring out the leering gawker in me.

    (CNN) – Most of the Republican members of a Senate committee investigating the terrorist attack at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, skipped an important classified briefing by administration officials on the incident Wednesday, CNN has learned.
    The missing lawmakers included Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who at the time of the top-secret briefing held a press conference in the Capitol to call for the creation of a Watergate-type special Congressional committee to investigate how and why the attack took place.

    So you hold a press conference about how we need to get to the bottom of the Benghazi situation, during the same time you’re supposed to be in a classified briefing on…the Benghazi situation?


    Here’s the money line…

    Asked why he wouldn’t comment, McCain grew agitated: “Because I have the right as a senator to have no comment and who the hell are you to tell me I can or not?”
    When CNN noted that McCain had missed a key meeting on a subject the senator has been intensely upset about, McCain said, “I’m upset that you keep badgering me.”

    He just told a CNN reporter to get off his lawn…

    @Lurking Canadian:

    None of the numbers in the story add up, either. He claims that an increase of 5000 dollars per employee for full health care coverage would result in a cost of 175,000 per restaurant? How many full time employees does it take to run a fast food restaurant? Even 50 full time workers would only result in an annual cost of 25,000 dollars. Do his restaurants not make any profit? Why is he arguing that the cost of the replacement value of the worker/health care has to come directly out of the pockets of his customers. I’m not surprised, though, that a billionaire would act as though the fact that there are costs of doing business–labor, food, rent, electricity, health care are all basically some form of “theft” from his rightful profits.

    “People are trying to find ways to avoid the penalties and to avoid having to pay for ObamaCare,” John Metz told

    That’s all I needed to read. He gave it away when he said Obamacare. This has NOTHING to do with his business and just everything to do with him being angry that the black guy was re-elected.

    Obamacare is the derogatory term that FoxNews came up with and pretty much always used when people on the far right try to diss ACA. Like in this case. Metz is a Republican and he doesn’t like our country’s President.

    Kelly Ayotte is just 44 (a virtual toddler by Senate-Republican standards): she earned her wingnut points as a hard-ass AG in New Hampshire, and got swept in in the big GOP wave of 2010. If she lasts at least as long as Grandpa Walnuts, she’ll still be Senator in 2044 or so…

    Although you’re probably right that this Denny’s guy meant it as a derogatory term, I don’t mind calling the ACA “Obamacare” if it helps President Obama get credit for it decades from now.

    So if he’s simultaneously cutting everyone’s hours so they’re not eligible for healthcare and raising prices by 5% to “pay for healthcare,” doesn’t that mean that he’s just going to pocket that extra 5% and not actually use it for employee healthcare?

    Also, I’m still not sure why restaurant owners think it’s a good idea to announce that on any given day they may have employees working in the kitchen who have the flu because they can’t afford to see a doctor. Um, yeah, the possibility of catching something from one of your workers because you’re too fucking cheap to get medical insurance for them makes me wonder what other health and safety corners you’re cutting. I really don’t like my Moons Over My Hammy with a side of salmonella or e. coli, thank you.
