    I’m sure this anti-Islamophobia advocate is just as upset that all these Muslim women would be beaten in the streets by Muslim men in some places for NOT wearing a veil.

    Lmao! Asking someone to leave for breaking the law is “vigilante justice?” Hahahahahahahaha! Whether you agree with the law or not, that is hilarious.

    Geez, it’s not like he gave her a kiss on the lips. His lips didn’t even touch her skin. That was soooooo sexual.

    They certainly stopped this dead in its tracks.

    Starting off your marriage up to your eyeballs in debt makes for a shaky foundation.

    She’d make a great MSNBC anchor.

    If Obama shows as much appreciation for the Secret Service as he does for our men and women in uniform (think half-assed salute with a coffee cup), that would probably have more to do with their lax attitude than the color of his skin.

    I like the false choice the White House has presented us. Apparently travel is either completely open or completely closed. How about this? If you want to fly over there, more power to you. If you want to fly from there to here, you at the very least have to jump through a few significant hoops. That way, we can send all the supplies and people we want over there to help, but we can still take measures to protect our own citizens.

    Political correctness is a plague. It starts as simple changes in language to avoid hurting anyone’s feelings, but it quickly turns into an inability to see the truth that’s right in front of you out of fear that the truth could offend someone. It begins to dictate public policy and in the end can get people killed. Look at Ft. Hood as a primary example.

    It seems strange that actual holidays would see lower numbers of births, as if they’re not just like any other day. I guess there’s a lot of C-sections and induced labor these days? Or do hospitals have a drug to slow the labor down if the doctor is out?

    1) You think Muslims are going to trust an infidel translation?

    2) You really think the problem is a bad translation and not the people themselves? “Oops! Read it wrong! Guess I’ll stop being an evil Satanic murderer of innocent men, women, and children! Glad you cleared that up for me!”

    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.
