It is now nearly a criminal offense to tell the truth here in the USA. The hordes of SJW types, along with their fake news media whores, come pouring out of the woodwork, breathing true believer fire and brimstone, and seeking the retribution of the fanatic. Yep, welcome to this strange combination of Orwell’s “1984”, and Huxley’s “Brave New World,” now called the USA. The media just reported the life expectancy of US citizens declined for the second year in a row due to drug overdoses. The only superpower left is in free fall, and its people dying faster than ever.

However, it is in the farcical tale of Papa John’s Pizza, its too honest CEO, the NFL “take a knee campaign,” and the hordes of SJW types howling for his blood, that I will discuss.



If I got this correct, the CEO said he was seeing a direct impact on company sales because fewer people were watching NFL games. This FACT meant the company was selling fewer pizzas, which in my view is a pretty accurate statement. Next, the SJW types threw a hisssy fit, which they excel at Mzkitty, perhaps a gift they have, and the other whiny corporate types forced him out, apologized profusely yada yada yada.

Now here is the official DOOMER DOUG prediction for what is going to happen now. I mean these people went to college, so why are they so stupid? At any rate, they have managed to piss everybody off on this issue. The people who no longer watch NFL games, and no longer order as much Pizza, aren’t going to suddenly start watching the NFL and ordering pizza again. Next, the SJW warriors don’t have the money to buy pizza, even if they, well okay their parents have cable in their basement SJW bastions, so maybe they will still watch the NFL. of course, Mzkitty the NFL is violent, likely to cause the SJW to need their safe spaces, and cuddle bunnies!

It seems to me that Papa Johns will now get hammered by all sides, since they have now pissed off all sides of the issue. The rest of the deplorables are now not going to buy pizza for any reason, since they are now pissed this CEO got sacked by GUTLESS, SPINELESS SJW ADULT VERSIONS.

Yep, it takes real business skill to take a bad situation, and make it worse.

#BREAKING: Papa John’s founder (and @BallState grad) out as CEO weeks after NFL comments…


Papa John’s founder out as CEO weeks after NFL comments

Updated: December 21, 2017, 5:13 pm

NEW YORK (AP) — Papa John’s founder John Schnatter will step down as CEO next month, about two months after he publicly criticized the NFL leadership over national anthem protests by football players — comments for which the company later apologized.

Schnatter will be replaced as chief executive by Chief Operating Officer Steve Ritchie on Jan. 1, the company announced Thursday. Schnatter, who appears in the chain’s commercials and on its pizza boxes, and is the company’s biggest shareholder, remains chairman of the board.

Earlier this year, Schnatter blamed slowing sales growth at Papa John’s — an NFL sponsor and advertiser — on the outcry surrounding players kneeling during the national anthem. Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick had kneeled during the national anthem to protest what he said was police mistreatment of black men, and other players started kneeling as well.

“The controversy is polarizing the customer, polarizing the country,” Schnatter said during a conference call about the company’s earnings on Nov. 1.

Papa John’s apologized two weeks later, after white supremacists praised Schnatter’s comments. The Louisville, Kentucky-based company distanced itself from the group, saying that it did not want them to buy their pizza.

Ritchie declined to say Thursday if the NFL comments played a role in Schnatter stepping down, only saying that it’s “the right time to make this change.”

Shares of Papa John’s are down about 13 percent since the day before the NFL comments were made, reducing the value of Schnatter’s stake in the company by nearly $84 million. Schnatter owns nearly 9.5 million shares of Papa John’s International Inc., and his total stake was valued at more than $560 million on Thursday, according to FactSet. The company’s stock is down 30 percent since the beginning of the year.

Schnatter, 56, founded Papa John’s more than three decades ago, when he turned a broom closet at his father’s bar into a pizza spot. And it has since grown to more than 5,000 locations. Schnatter has also become the face of the company, showing up in TV ads with former football player Peyton Manning.

The company hasn’t decided if Schnatter will still be its spokesman, Ritchie said, adding that a decision will be made early next year.

The Papa John’s leadership change comes as the pizza chains that once dominated the fast-food delivery business face tougher competition from hamburger and fried-chicken chains that are expanding their delivery business. McDonald’s Corp., for example, expects to increase delivery from 5,000 of its nearly 14,000 U.S. locations by the end of the year.

Ritchie said his focus as CEO will be making it easier for customers to order a Papa John’s pizza from anywhere. That’s a strategy that has worked for Domino’s, which takes orders from tweets, text messages and voice-activated devices, such as Amazon’s Echo. Papa John’s customers can order through Facebook and Apple TV, but Ritchie said he wants the chain to be everywhere customers are.

“The world is evolving and changing,” he said.

Ritchie, 43, began working at a Papa John’s restaurant 21 years ago, making pizzas and answering phones, the company said. He became a franchise owner in 2006 and owns nine locations. He was named chief operating officer three years ago. Ritchie said plans for him to succeed Schnatter were made after that.





I believe that the spiritual realm overshadows the physical one we exist in; namely, the five dimensions we call reality. From time to time, in my opinion, we are given a true glimpse of what the Spirit thinks of the physical action. We have seen two examples of this regarding the final decadent, corrupt, and brazen end of the Obama Reign of Marxist Terror. The first was Obama’s final White House Party. The second was the farce known as the Golden Globe Awards.

The best comparison I can make regarding Obama’s final, drunken, drug fueled orgy is to Balthasar’s the Babylonian King sending for the Jewish Temple’s cups to drink out of. We are told a hand appeared and wrote: Mene, Tekel; Uparshim on the banquet hall. This translate to: Balthasar, you are weighed; Baltashar, you are judged; Baltashar, you are found wanting and sentenced to death. Insert Obama, and all his brain-dead foolish supporters, and you get the message. We have dodged a bullet with Trump’s election. If Hellary the Shrew had actually stolen the 2016 election, I believe the full fury of Iris Dei, the wrath of God, would have ground the USA into mush. The evil of the Marxist stooges is still around, but at least we deplorables are fully capable of dealing with the treasonous filth now infesting the upper reaches of American society.

If you think I am being excessive, well just go to the highlighted links and  look at our degenerate elite in their full glory at Obama’s final White House Party. The Marxist scum are certainly consistent in their debauchery. We had Bill Clinton, back in 1998, renaming the Oval Office the Oral Office with his trysts with Monica. I have little doubt some of Obama’s “celebrity guests” were doing lines of cocaine on the Oval Office desk. It was said that Ronald Reagan always wore a suit jacket,  shirt and tie when he worked in the Oval Office, because he respected it as the symbol of the people. Clinton had sex on it; Obama’s friends likely used it to snort cocaine. In a nutshell, that is the difference between Reagan and Trump, and Obama and Bill, or Hellary, Clinton. 





If you would like to listen to the theme song for Obama’s drunken party, here is the link to a song called, “Live for Tonight.” If you can just imagine the so-called “A listers” snorting coke in the Oval Office, well you get the idea.

By the way, I am 63 years old today. I have lived too long, seen too much; experienced things no man should. As we now enter the final phase of the American Republic, with our future existence, our very survival as both a nation and people hanging in the balance, I do not say Trump is our savior. I say he has a better shot than the Marxist scum, now whining and openly advocating subversion and treason, to prevent the final collapse of America. Breathe deeply. Ponder current events with an eye to the spritual. Fall on your face before the living God, and then hope we live through the next 11 days, and the four years after that. I can’t guarantee we will survive any of that, but I can guarantee a wild ride. Do you want to live forever? <G>

It may be we are on the edge of death. It may be the fact it is late August. It may even be that I am increasingly going crazy. Or it may be this obituary really is funnier than hell and I need a laugh. Well, if I need a laugh I thnk my blog readers do also.


He assures us he is gone

William Ziegler escaped this mortal realm on Friday, July 29, 2016 at the age of 69.

We think he did it on purpose to avoid having to make a decision in the pending presidential election.

He leaves behind four children, five grandchildren, and the potted meat industry, for which he was an unofficial spokesman until dietary restrictions forced him to eat real food.

William volunteered for service in the United States Navy at the ripe old age of 17 and immediately realized he didn’t much enjoy being bossed around. He only stuck it out for one war.

Before his discharge, however, the government exchanged numerous ribbons and medals for various honorable acts.

Upon his return to the City of New Orleans in 1971, thinking it best to keep an eye on him, government officials hired William as a fireman.

After twenty-five years, he suddenly realized that running away from burning buildings made more sense than running toward them. He promptly retired.

Looking back, William stated that there was no better group of morons and mental patients than those he had the privilege of serving with (except Bob, he never liked you, Bob).

Following his wishes, there will not be a service, but wellwishers are encouraged to write a note of farewell on a Schaefer Light beer can and drink it in his honor.

He was never one for sentiment or religiosity, but he wanted you to know that if he owes you a beer, and if you can find him in Heaven, he will gladly allow you to buy him another.

He can likely be found forwarding tasteless internet jokes (check your spam folder, but don’t open these at work). Expect to find an alcoholic dog named Judge passed out at his feet. Unlike previous times, this is not a ploy to avoid creditors or old girlfriends. He assures us that he is gone. He will be greatly missed.

I went and saw the Oscar nominated movie, it has a staggering twelve nominations, The Revenant. Revenant means “one who has returned from the dead.” It is an apt title, indeed. The Revenant is really three separate stories rolled into one. It is at the core a survival movie in the most literal sense of the word. It is also a revenge story of intensity and focus dealing with the vengeance best left with God. Finally, it is a story of people and place. It is a story of how the place defines the people; how the people define the place. The Revenant is a deep movie. It ponders the issues of character, environmental destruction and the genocide directed at the original inhabitants of the place; namely, the Indians.

It weaves a rich tapestry of the clash of cultures happening in this special place. The time is somewhere around 1825; it is a bit vague on that. The place is the upper Missouri River in the United States. It is also a bit vague on exactly where that is also. Granted, the actual movie was shot in British Columbia with a total commitment to authenticity and historical reality rare in movies these days. The reason you feel the movie is simply because the stuff shown in the movie really happened. There is no computer generated magic in The Revenant. When the lead character is floating down an icy river, it is real because DiCaprio is actually floating down a freezing river. It is that level of artistic integrity that gives the movie its emotional impact on the viewer.

I also have to say the cinematography is on a level of Lawrence of Arabia, or Doctor Zhivago or the other visually breathtaking movies. I will flatly state the visuals are the kind that leave one breathless and in awe of the skill involved by the crew shooting the scenes. I will also warn you I plan to see it a second time, and possibly a third. It is that good. It is that deep a movie you need to see it several times to absorb all it has to offer. Finally, well the acting is outstanding; the character development is deep and provides insight into people’s motivations for doing what they did.

I highly suggest you see the movie in a theater. If you don’t, then you are wasting your time in my view. The natural vistas shown on screen will be diminished into nothingness when seen on a television screen from a DVD. Like I said, I am talking about master craftsman level here. The general level of all aspects of the movie is so far beyond the usual drivel Hollywood pumps out. It is like comparing a Hollywood sitcom to Hamlet. It really is that good. It really is worth the $9.10 it cost me to see it during an afternoon matinee. Again, even if you can’t stand Hollywood, or their liberal brain dead actors, you should see this movie. It is rated R-17 for a reason. The violence in it reflects the daily level of violence Mountain Men, Indians and others running around the 1825 wilderness would deal with on a daily basis. And yes, Virginia the bear, the Grizzly Bear, attack is powerful and I did turn my eyes away a couple of times. The other reason I plan to see it again is there was so much going on I had trouble keeping track of it. For example, there is a scene where the lead character is walking over a valley covered by snow. In the background are a whole series of mountains. It was a spectacular, visual scene that worked on so many levels. It was beautiful. It was a meditation on the smallness of man against the majesty of nature. It was a profoundly moving scene and it had no human interaction at all. It was just one guy walking over a vast snowpack, and surrounded by immense mountains. The entire movie was studded with scenes like that. The level of excitement was also able to keep my interest for the entire two plus hour length of the movie.

If you only see one movie this year, see The Revenant. If you haven’t seen a movie in the last five years, go see the Revenant. If you hate Hollywood with a passion, go see The Revenant anyway.

Doomer Doug saw the original “Red Dawn” way back in 1984 in a theater. Doomer Doug has just returned from watching the modern “remake” at the Regal Cinema in downtown Portland. The idea Regal would show the movie “Red Dawn” in downtown Portland is bemusing to put it mildly. If the people in Portland were any bluer, they would be Smurfs At any rate, Doomer Doug had a private showing of “Red Dawn” in a small screen, 60 seat theater. Doomer Doug was the only person watching the 12.10 pm matinee showing.

Doomer Doug thinks if people go to see “Red Dawn” expecting a remake of the original they will not like it. However, if they go with the idea the new version is an interpretation of the 1984 classic, they will like it. I liked the new version. I am somewhat surprised I did, but I really did. There are several points we need to get out of the way up front. This is not the 1984 version. It lacks the chemistry between Charlie Sheen and Patrick Swaze. It lacks the political atmosphere of John Milnus’ version. It also lacks the jocks with guns fighting the Ruskies background the 1984 version had. Again, if you can get past that, this movie has some things going for it.

You also have to suspend belief and accept two basic ideas related to this version. The first is the EMP, electro magnetic pulse, renders the USA helpless against the invaders. I think this is credible. The second is you need to understand the main bad guys, the North Koreans, are there for PC reasons. The movie does show Russian Spenstaz troops. The movie implies the Russians have conquered the US east coast. It also implies that North Korea has gotten help from “others.” The others are not named, but you realize they are hinting at Chinese help. Of course, the Chinese were the original bad guys. They threatened to ban MGM from the Chinese market if that wasn’t changed.

Bottom line, if you can get past all that the new version has some appeal. Doomer Doug found the action sequences to be superior in this version to the 1984 one. Doomer Doug found the new version to be much darker, realistic, and more in tune with life in 2013. I do not think the chemistry between the two brothers was anywhere near the level of the original. They came across as a bit whiny to Doomer Doug. On the other hand, the depiction of actual insurgent combat was very well done. In particular, several of the performances by the supporting actors regarding the true costs of combat were very nicely done. I also felt the movie got the combat mostly correct. It got the training correct. And finally, I think it portrayed the sacrifice these ‘Wolverines” made much better than the original movie. There were several scenes, for instance where the Wolverine with the RFID chip makes a fatal decision, that were very well done.

I paid $8.50 to see this movie. I avoided the usual crowd situation since Doomer Doug had his own private screening. Doomer Doug also thought Hollyweird avoided the usual PC, anti American drivel common to the movies it makes. Red Dawn is a very patriotic movie. It does not despise the US military. It does not despise the concepts of honor, sacrifice or patriotism. It is a very rare Hollyweird movie in that one fact alone.

Doomer Doug will suggest people see the new version of “Red Dawn.” As long as you realize it is a new version set in the context of modern America, you will like it.
