Stop Tipping

Stop Tipping

You go to the restaurant and get a nice meal and good service so you tip the waitress. More than likely, your meal was okay, your service was hurried and impersonal, and you still feel obligated to tip more than 10%. You tell yourself you’re doing it because the waitress needs your tips to survive.

In your effort to do something nice for your server, you’re actually doing them harm.

By tipping, you’re encouraging, almost forcing the restaurant owner to steal their tips. Here’s how.

By knowing that the waitresses get 10-15% in tips, the owner reduces their pay by that much, effectively stealing her tips.

This happens in EVERY restaurant and EVERY industry where tips are expected.

This isn’t fair to the worker. They should be paid fairly by their employer and if they’re not, we, you and I, should not be giving them our business.

What happens when a waitress stays home sick? They get minimum wage and no tips for the time she’s out of work. Sick leave seldom includes tips.

So, by tipping, you’re at fault for the waitress’ poor pay and lack of fair Social Security contributions, and poor sick leave.

And, this problem isn’t just limited to the restaurant industry.

Stop tipping.

Is Edward Snowden a Traitor?

Is Edward Snowden a Traitor?
Dave Speck

UPDATED

We’ve all heard the news stories by now about how Mr. Snowden exposed the NSA for wide-scale spying on innocent Americans without warrants.

Now we’re hearing some people come out and say Snowden is a traitor.

Is he?

Let’s start by asking what it means to be a traitor. It’s simple. Traitor is defined in the American constitution as aiding the enemy in a time of war.

We have declared war against no one. Telling the American people that they are being spied upon by their own government, illegally, is not giving the enemy aid, unless you consider the American people to be the enemy.

So, the answer is simply, NO! Snowden does not meet the definition.

If you are hearing people saying he is a traitor, know that those people are either liars or morons. How could anyone not know the answer?

But if you’re hearing that he is a traitor, and the person saying so is a news source or a politician, you need to stop listening to the morons and imbeciles. And more importantly, if they are politicians calling him a traitor, it’s time we voted those idiots out of office. Make sure all of your friends or family know the politician is an idiot and needs to be removed.

UPDATE:
Why are we even talking about this. The real topic is why is our government spying on us illegally? It’s plain as day. It’s against the constitution yet our elected politicians are doing it. It has to stop and we have to make them stop.

Sandoval Against the Nevada Voter

By Dave Speck

The Nevada voter voted for reasonable gun control. The representatives of Nevada voted for reasonable gun control.

What did Nevada’s governor Sandoval do? He represented the international gun manufacturing lobby an vetoed the will of the people,

Obviously Sandoval doesnot represent those who were fool enough to vote for him.

It is time for reasonable gun control and it is time to replace Sandoval with a representative of the people, and not a representative of the gun lobby.

Tell Nevada Gov Sandoval, Don’t veto universal background checks

The Nevada legislature, in the face of inaction from Washington and at the urging a huge majority of Nevada voters, has passed a law that would require universal background checks for all gun sales in Nevada.

Governor Sandoval has threatened to veto the bill, despite the widespread bi-partisan support for universal background checks from voters and even within the NRA’s membership.

Nevada’s lax gun laws are responsible for thousands of illegal guns flooding the streets in neighboring California. Vetoing this legislation would be a tragedy for all Nevadans, putting them at significantly greater risk of suffering gun violence.

That’s why I signed a petition to Brian Sandoval, Governor of Nevada, which says:

“Gov. Sandoval “Don’t veto SB 221. Stand with 86% of Nevadans and sign universal background checks into law.””
