    would gladly pay an extra 15 0r even 50 cents for my pizza or grinder if I knew it was going to pay for health care for the people who make my food. But I already don't buy from Papa John's, Subway, and Applebees simply because the food is shitty. I find a local mom&pop that has the best and I stick with them. The only way I ever patronize the big chains is when I'm on the road and find myself in a small town with no other options. I used to work for a touring theater, and I lost count of the tiny midwest hamlets that had nothing but a Subway, Pizza Hut, and maybe a KFC. Blech.

    Al Qeada is a faith-based initiative.

      I'll stay with the local Mom & Pop places.  Better food and usually the same people whom you've gotten to know.
      Never did like Applebee's, Subway, Pizza Hut, and never went to Papa John's.
      Nothing but greedy people, these.
      Sorta like speeders on a dangerously snowy road, no thought about anyone else. No thought about the repercussions of their actions.

      I think, therefore I am........................... Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose....AKA Engine Nighthawk - don't even ask!
