Here is a tip for restaurant workers in San Francisco; Tips are not mandatory, they are given at the desire of the person paying them.
It seems that people have forgotten what a tip is and what it is for. Workers in San Francisco restaurants want to make a 25% tip mandatory! How do you make a tip, something that is given at the pleasure of the person being served, mandatory? I admit that some people are stingy with their tips and some do not tip at all but it is important to remember that it is their money and they are free to do with it as they please.
A tip is based on service. What incentive will San Fran workers have to do a great job if they are going to get a 25% tip no matter how well or how poorly they do their jobs?
I tip based on service and I have never left no tip at all. Once I received absolutely poor service and left a 2 cent tip. I wanted the worker to know that I did not forget to tip him but that his service was absolutely lousy.
I have also not added any additional tip when there was a mandatory tip added based on the number of people at the table. When a restaurant has instructions that tables of six or more will have an 18% (or whatever percent it is) gratuity automatically added to the bill then I do not add any more of a tip. I figure the restaurant has already decided what the worker’s service is worth and I only pay the gratuity they added. I have a real problem with a gratuity (a gift of money, over and above payment due for service, as to a waiter or bellhop; tip; something given without claim or demand. Dictionary.com) being mandatory. How do you tell someone that they MUST give a gift? For decent service I tip at 20% so workers miss out when their bosses decide how much of a GIFT I have to give. Isn’t forcing people to pay 25% (or any rate really) just jacking bills up another 25%? Does that not take away from the meaning of something given without claim or demand? I mean, if you force people to pay it then you are demanding it…
This brings me back to San Francisco. Who is going to be forced to pay a GIFT? Suppose you said you were not going to pay that part of the bill? What could they actually do to you? How is it possible for them to force you to give a gift and how is it possible for them to decide how much that gift will be? I know if I went to a place where I was forced to pay a 25% gift (though it is unlikely I would ever knowingly do so) I would work that server to death to earn that “gift.”
How long will it be before patrons decide to dine someplace else?
So my tip for you restaurant workers in San Fran is simple; work hard and you will be tipped well. If you think your wages are low because you receive tips as part of your compensation then find another place to work.
And quit playing these redistribution schemes. This liberal philosophy has never worked and it never will.

There is a big uproar by the morons in this country who seem to think that it is perfectly OK to break the law and that there should be no consequences for doing so. The same people who were apoplectic during the Plame controversy in eager anticipation of some unruly Republican lawbreaker being frogmarched out of the White House are working to help. and actively support, those who are here illegally.
Al Sharpton is organizing his group of rabble rousers to stir up trouble in Arizona. Pat Buchanan makes an interesting point about that. How many blacks will follow Sharpton given that a number of jobs they could be doing are held by the illegals who Sharpton is supporting?
Now San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera is calling for a boycott of Arizona. What kind of moron is this so called attorney? Here is a guy who is an officer of the court who is expected to uphold the law and he is calling for a boycott of Arizona because he does not like the law they passed. If this law is unconstitutional then the courts will sort it out. Is it appropriate for parts of this country to call for boycotts because they happen not to like a particular law in another state?
Suppose California passed a gay marriage law and the rest of the country boycotted that state. Do you suppose people like Herrera (whose name and actions show where his loyalties lie and they are not to his country) would be up in arms?
I say screw San Francisco. Boycott them. California is on the brink of insolvency and it should not take too much more to push it over the edge. Start with San Francisco and see what happens from there. If we can hurt it enough they might need to get rid of Herrera. I have an idea where they can send him.
I like what Arizona did and I will wait to evaluate, on a case by case basis, whether or not there is “racial” profiling going on (can’t happen because Hispanic is not a race). If things turn out badly then they can fix it but it is time that the states started taking an active role in this mess because the federal government has no desire to fix it. The feds want to grant amnesty to all the illegals and be done with it so we can start over again and accumulate another 12 million illegals so they too can receive amnesty in five or ten years.
Arizona decided that this was not satisfactory. I could not agree more. I think that people should have to provide the same documentation to get a home, a loan, a driver’s license, a job, and assistance that I had to in order to join the Army and in order to get the job I currently have. If it is good enough for me it is good enough for them and if they cannot show the proper documentation then they need to get on out of here.
As for me, I think I will take a week and visit Arizona sometime this summer. Maybe they will stop me and ask if I am here legally. That would be fun and I would be happy to comply. I won’t even scream that they racially profiled me.
Don’t “profile” in Arizona but play the race card in DC.
Barack Obama released a new video this weekend and it is a desperate call for votes in the November election. In it he asks young people, women, African-Americans and Latinos to come out once again and vote in November (he ignored you for a while but now he needs you). He is begging for the help that these groups gave him in 2008 because he knows his party is going to get its head handed over on a platter in November. Mr. balls to the walls Obama is working hard to cram as much legislation through because after November he will be a lame duck first termer and Viagra won’t be able to help his impotence.
In his call to arms Obama neglected to ask for help from a group of people who ensured his victory and that would be the millions of white folks who voted for him in the last election. I guess he figures those folks are not that important. Let’s face it though, he needn’t ask blacks to vote for Democrats. Those votes are a lock. The Latinos, those folks supported him and now that he is trying to give them all amnesty they will be real happy. However, the group that overwhelmingly pays the bills in this country was excluded from his request. That is the one group that gave him the election because he could not have won without it.
Not that it matters. All politics are local and the local races are what will matter. Obama will lose a lot of them in November. It will be death by a thousand cuts.
And I will love watching it play out.
Be sure to visit Arizona this year and boycott San Francisco.

The libtards of Berkeley California have been fighting a Marine recruiting station for some time now. The hags of Code Pink(o) protested everyday, the city council said they were unwelcome and then did everything possible to make it easy for the antagonists to continue. To their credit, the Marines never mopped the street up with these low life scum bags.
These people are absolute cowards. They certainly act tough when there are huge numbers of them and TV cameras around but then they wait until the cover of darkness to vandalize the recruiting station. That’s right, these maggots vandalize the recruiting station at night when no one is around because they are cowards. The only difference between them and the terrorists who use cowardly acts to intimidate people is that the libtards don’t scare anyone. If you scream boo at them they wet their panties. After the most recent attack on the station some libtard reported on it and was actually happy that it happened. Here is what someone named Scarlet wrote:
At 9PM on March 18th, the eve of the 6th anniversary of the war in Iraq, a group of persons wearing masks smashed the windows and splattered red paint at the U.S. Marine Corps Recruiting Center in Berkeley, California.
The center has been the target of protests for the last 18 months, and stands as a symbol of U.S. militarism and imperialist wars. The act of property distruction stands alone as the embodyment of frustration of a people whos government does not listen to or care about them.
Police have not made any arrests but are reviewing the tape, said Sgt. Mary Kusmiss. A sledgehammer and a crowbar were found in a nearby garbage can nearby, and are being reviewing as evidence. After breaking windows and improving the Marine Corps logo at the center, the group wearing masks and dark clothing scattered in three different directions, police said.
As of the time of this posting, no one involved has been arrested. The act was easy. You and a few friends could have pulled it off any day.
NO MORE IMPERIALIST WARS!!!
NO MORE GOVERNMENT!!!
SMASH THE STATE!!!
Scarlet is happy that some maggot used a sledgehammer to, in her words (assuming Scarlet is a she) “improve the Marine Corps logo.” She seems to think this station stands as a symbol of imperialism and militarism and that the vandalism is because of the frustration caused by government not listening to the people.
For some reason these left wing retards seem to think that it is OK to go around and damage things if they don’t get what they want. Like spoiled children they throw tantrums when big daddy government does not do their bidding. They justify illegal acts and acts of violence by saying they are not being listened to.
Now we know these cowards did this at night, not because they are afraid of the police because the cops there in Berkeley are probably sympathetic to the cause, but because they have something bigger to fear. These cowards did this at night when the Marines were not there because they know the Marines will stomp the living hell out of them and keep stomping until their intestines squirt out of their anuses.
Since these libtards seem to think that it is perfectly OK to raise hell and damage things when they are not listened to perhaps the Marines should kick up a little dust because no one had listened to them when they asked to be left alone.
How about we put a platoon of Marines in Berkeley and they walk through the streets in a long formation abreast of each other and just slap the hell out of anyone they come across? They could say that the local government did not listen to them and instead pandered to the cowards thus creating an atmosphere where this kind of stuff happens. They could justify their slapping liberals around by saying that this is the frustration that occurs when government does not listen.
It would be great to see a platoon of Marines just walking through town and seeing how many of the opposition has the guts to attack them in the daylight. I say none, zero, zilch, nada because they are cowards. The Marines could just go around beating the hell out of people who look at them them the wrong way.
None of this will happen because, unlike the limp wristed, latte drinking, cowards who vandalize under cover of darkness, the Marines have integrity and discipline.
What I would like to see is for the Marines to put 3 or 4 troops in front of that building to guard it. They could pull guard duty there and just beat the living hell out of anyone who tries to vandalize.
Of course, they would never get the chance because the bed wetting liberal pansies who do this kind of stuff don’t have the testicular fortitude to do it when there is any kind of opposition.
Who knows though. The East Bay website is out of San Francisco so maybe they will send in the Pink Berets…

The city of San Francisco will be voting on whether to legalize prostitution. OK, technically it would not legalize prostitution it would just keep law enforcement from enforcing the laws sort of like the way they do with regard to illegal aliens.
My question is, isn’t prostitution already legal there? Nancy Pelosi has been whoring herself out to special interests and making big bucks on it. She has been happy to sell herself to the highest bidder and this has been going on for quite some time. It is a family trait inherited from her father, another whoring politician.
The prostitution is gaining legal status all across the party as the Obamessiah himself is whoring out election night. Barry O plans on selling quality seats for election night coverage to the media. Those who don’t pay get blocked standing room only access. And as far as all the donors who gave small amounts (over and over until over the limit) you will be ignored in favor of the big dollar donors. Typical dictator, Socialism for the peasants and riches for Dear Leader.
Yep, prostitution is already legal in San Francisco and within the Democratic Potty.

A tiger escaped from a zoo in San Francisco and killed one man and injured two others before police were able to shoot it and put it out of its misery. The three men were minding their own business when the tiger appeared and decided to have one of them for lunch. I imagine the moonbats did not perceive the tiger as a threat and that if they only reasoned with it, all would be well. This is how I think the conversation might have gone:
Moonbat 1: Here it is, another Holiday Season, and Chimpy McBush still has troops in Iraq in his illegal war. There was no threat to us and he used his doctrine of preemptive strike to upset the entire Muslim world. We cannot bring democracy to a region that does not want it.
Moonbat 2: If only we would have tried diplomacy and talked to Hussein we could have seen that he was no threat and we would not be in this war that costs billions of dollars and instead used that money for AIDS research and on paying for services for illegal immigrants.
Moonbat 3: Look, a tiger. Now most neocons would see this tiger as a threat. But if we are nice to it then it will not hurt us. Here kitty kitty. Listen to him purr, Ahhhhhhh my arm!
Moonbat 1: Oh God, the tiger is eating Stefan. (sounds of screaming and tiger chewing).
Moonbat 2: Call the police. We need a gun, who has a gun? Oh man, Ahhh.
Police show up and kill the tiger. One moonbat dead and two injured.
If this had happened in Texas the conversation would have been:
Texan 1: Look at that damned tiger. Where’d he come from?
Texan 2: I don’t know but call the cops. I’ll shoot the damned thing if it gets close.
Texan 3: Here he comes. (blam, blam, blam, blam, blam, blam [reloading sounds] blam, blam, blam).
Texan 1: He’s dead. Thank God we shot him before he attacked anyone. Who wants the head for his den wall?
Texan 2: Good thing we are allowed to carry guns. I would hate to see what would have happened if this had been San Francisco.
The lesson: Sometimes preemptive strikes are good and people are only safe if they are armed.
