On the heels of Hobby Lobby, Jewish Deli owners follow soup.

When discussing Obamacare, Joshua Flickenstein, the owner of J’s Deli said, “We are tired of Obamacare forcing us to pay for heart disease treatment and medication to employees who eat bacon for breakfast, lunch, or whatever.”  People in the Jewish community are getting really frustrated about the new healthcare law also known as Obamacare.  The complaints are numerous especially among tea party conservatives.  Mr. Flickenstein went on to say, “Ever since Obamacare started they built several new Wendy’s restaurants near my deli. Some of my employees have been whorishly sneaking around at eating Baconators for lunch.”  Mr. Flickenstein said his concern is how he can afford to pay for heart transplants for all the people that work for him.  “The best part of running a restaurant is paying my employees 2.13 and hour and I still charge them 14.50 for a sandwich.”  He says that he doesn’t believe that people should eat bacon because it says not to (eat bacon) in the bible.  I asked him where in the bible it says that.  He casually tells me, as he places two soup bowls down on the table, that he doesn’t know where it says that, but that is what his Grandma Ruth has always told him that’s what it (the bible) says.  He tells me that the soup is his Nana’s famous vegetable soup and has secret ingredients.  Mr. Flickenstein laments, “I am afraid that with all the changes and Obamacare that will no longer be able serve Nana’s vegetable soup.  They are forcing bacon and communism on us as a people.  Why should I pay for heart surgery and all that?”  Mr. Flickenstien is afraid after 20 years of business he will be forced to close his doors forever.  “The Baconators are too much fat and cholesterol and even the Son of a Baconator isn’t that much better.  It isn’t fair,” he continued.  “Hopefully, Hobby Lobby will win in the Supreme Court.  I want to travel to the courthouse wearing my ‘Eat Mor Matzah Balls’ T-shirt for the verdict.”  Well, we will just have to wait and see.  Stay tuned.
