    This isn't like some sort of coordinated ALEC-sponsored concerted effort, complete with highly paid media relations people and a uniform list of talking points, right? I mean, all these franchise owners just happened to come up with this idea on their own?

    And Karl Rove has nothing whatsoever to do with it, right? Or all the people who last year (heck, last month) were vowing that their first action in office would be to abolish Obamacare? And that it's going to bankrupt us all?

    It's getting tiresome having diary after diary, news report after news report, of one restaurant owner after another. What I'd really like to see is a good conspiracy / lobbying story.

      they all 'got the memo'... someone needs to dig into it. it's bullshit, and it's not just 'spontaneous', like they all just happened to be doing it.

    •  It's probably a loose conspiracy (2+ / 0-)

      I doubt that they all went to some convention and drew up a strategy ALEC-style, but these people do talk to each other. No doubt they and others we have yet to find out about have been at fancy dinners bitching about how horrible Obamacare is and how us commoners need to understand it. Or how they need to somehow "go Galt" to punish us ingrates for turning the government "communist". So they hardly have to conspire. Not that none of them are involved in conspiracies.

      Let me explain the order of things to you. There's the aristocracy, the upper class, the middle class, working class, dumb animals, waiters, creeping things, head lice, people who eat packet soup, then you. -- Gareth Blackstock, Chef!
