    What does he not understand? They WANT a fight. They don’t want to be left alone. A fight with the U.S. is the greatest recruitment tool they could ever have. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t give them a fight, but we damn sure better use everything we have to completely decimate them. Of course that won’t happen, though.

    I’m not talking about any kind of “official” minimum standard. I’m talking about what some of these whiny brats in food service think they’re entitled to regardless of the job they do. They all have their own “standard.”

    As for the 8% thing, you were actually likely making out better on your taxes. If your employer was only reporting 8% of your sales as tip income rather than asking you to add up the actual amount, it’s probably safe to say that your total tips were underreported. So sure, when looking at one transaction where you were given a small or no tip, you would technically owe taxes on money you didn’t earn because of the lazy way your employer was reporting your income. That was your employer’s fault, not the customer’s. In the grand scheme of things, though, you probably came out a lot better with all the money you saved in taxes by having your total tips for the year underreported.

    With the way things are done now days, tipped employees have to make at least minimum wage. If their hourly pay and tips don’t add up to it, the employer has to make up the difference. I get really tired of hearing all the entitled servers out there whining about only making a few bucks an hour and acting like it’s the fault of low-tipping customers that they are living in poverty. It’s a lie. They make as much as any other minimum wage employee makes. It’s not the obligation of customers to subsidize you. Improve your attitude or find another job if you want more money.

    Here’s a question: Does being a server turn you into a whiny, entitlement-mentality brat or does being a whiny, entitlement-mentality brat make you predisposed to a job as a server? I mean absolutely no offense to servers in general. There are plenty of great ones, but the entitlement mindset among the bad ones is so extreme. They act like customers are obligated to make up the difference between their hourly wage and whatever ridiculous idea they have of what fair pay is. If you don’t shower them with money or at least give them some minimum standard tip they’ve come up with, you’re a terrible person and deserve to be dragged through the mud. The tip is never a reflection on their service but on their customer’s moral character.

    Anyway, I’m pretty sure someone wouldn’t tip $.20 on a credit card bill if the server did a good job, no matter who the tipper is. That’s the kind of tip you give to really piss someone off. It says, “I didn’t forget to leave a tip. I just wanted to make it clear to you how horrible your service and/or attitude was.” If you’re being cheap, you just leave the coin change you received from a cash payment or just tip an even dollar or two.

    If a grand jury is in session, then there’s not really any mystery as to who’s been doing the recruiting. The government is sure they have their guy, and the grand jury is just hearing the evidence and any witness testimony to determine whether charges should be brought against him.

    Give me a break. No one is rubbing your nose in anything. I’m just trying to make a point. Maybe you should read what I wrote again. I made it pretty clear that I think they should use conventional methods of teaching.

    Comfort over safety, huh? Panera has shown it doensn’t give a damn about the security of its guests.

    Glad to see The Blaze covering this. It happened right around the corner from my girlfriend’s house, and according to a Kroger employee in the story that I submitted to The Blaze as a tip yesterday, it’s not the first time it’s happened there. So far 10 teenagers and 1 adult, including the kid in the green shirt seen kicking the employee in the head, have been arrested and charged with crimes such as aggravated assault and aggravated riot. I think the kid in the green should be charged with attempted murder for the repeated kicks to the head. He’s only 15 years old and has been arrested at least nine times since 2012. The first time was when he was only 12 and assaulted his pregnant mother and another family member. The POS should be in prison for life.

    Honestly, this is how I do some math in my head. If I think 9+8, then I think what 10+8-1 would be. I just do it in a split second. I was in the gifted program throughout school, and part of what defined us as gifted was that we could solve problems in different and creative ways. I think what they’re trying to do in this instance is teach people the “gifted” or “creative” way to solve a simple math problem, and I’m not sure that’s something you can teach people. I think for a lot of kids, all that will do is confuse them. When you try to explain creative ways of solving problems, it actually makes it seem more complicated. What they should be doing is teaching the conventional way to solve the problem. That’s something that everyone can follow, and the gifted students will figure out the more creative ways of doing it on their own.

    That’s dumb as hell. If no one works, then how does anyone eat, free or otherwise? The only thing people will be sitting around and feeling is hunger.

    Exrepublisheep, you’re missing the obvious. In a capitalist system, employers compete for labor, therefore driving the cost of labor up. If one employer pays rock bottom wages, then another employer will snatch up the labor by offering better pay. The employer paying rock bottom wages will be forced to raise his wages or his company will fail. That’s the miracle of competition. It’s the same concept as offering an inferior product. Companies that don’t innovate will not survive because another company will outdo them.

    If government didn’t make labor so unaffordable for companies by doing things such as imposing minimum wages or forcing them to provide minimum levels of health insurance, they wouldn’t be trying to find every possible way to decrease the costs.

    The self-serve kiosks were being tested at a Jack in the Box in Dallas that I went to 5 years ago.

    What do you expect from people who read the creepy Twilight-based porn fantasies of a 50-year old woman?

    This is like indicting a district attorney for coercion for threatening to prosecute someone for first degree murder if they don’t plea to second degree.

    While reviewing his previous predictions, did he happen to address the one from a few years ago about WWIII being an impossibility because all the world’s economies are tied together and another world war would mean mutually-assured destruction?

    So that Canadian moron says this trivializes the concerns and claims of the other side? Really? I didn’t realize we were supposed to give a damn what the other side thought when they’re hateful bigots who vote in terrorist groups to represent them and long for the days when all Jews will be murdered violently. That was the point of this video, right? If they would reject their dedication to violence and lust for genocide, Israel would sit down and listen to them in a minute and be overwhelmingly generous.

    I can’t believe how much bigoted Jew-hating is going on in the Arab world! It’s quite shocking. LOL J/K!!!

    Spotted him about 10 seconds before the lifeguard jumped in. He was the only one in the pool who was being completely overtaken by the waves rather than bobbing up and down with them.

    How exactly do you Tweet something using a hash tag, which indicates that it was meant specifically for Twitter, and then claim you didn’t realize you were Tweeting? So full of crap…

    Don’t you love it? If you say that you believe homosexuality is a sin, then you’re called a “hateful bigot.” Storm a synagogue full of Jews with weapon in hand because you hate Jews, and you’re called… well, no one has very much to say about that. I searched Google and couldn’t find any matches for stories on CNN or MSNBC about this. It’s pretty clear that if you don’t share radical left-wing opinions, then that’s bigotry. Wanting to kill Jews and destroy their houses of worship? Nothing to get worked up about.

    Apparently that picture was taken before the Pallywood crew could get there and have actors covered in dust and fake blood sprawl out all over the place.
