more businesses should add these line items to their bills so regular citizens realize why they are dumb for voting left and that money isn't free.

Minn. Restaurant Charging Customers Minimum Wage Fee CBS Minnesota

Quote:
People eating at a Stillwater restaurant Tuesday noticed a new fee added to their bill.

Owners of the Oasis Cafe are charging a 35 cent minimum wage fee. They say it’s to offset the cost of an increased minimum wage for tipped employees.

Customers have mixed reviews about the new fee.

For some, the thought of charging customers this fee sent them to social media to vent.
“You’re essentially blaming customers for the increase when you charge for it the way you do,” one customer wrote on Facebook.

Another said: “It’s Oasis way of blaming our government for trying to set a fair living wage. It is political grandstanding.”

Oasis owners fired back on Facebook, saying: “Thumbing my nose at the law change, you’re right. Part of my thinking was to shine a light on this matter, which I truly believe is in the best interest of both my business and employees.”

Many eating at Oasis on Tuesday said it’s not a big deal to pay a little extra to keep a small business afloat.

“I don’t take issue with it really,” Jordan Felt said.

The Oasis management says they estimate the pay increase is costing them more than $10,000 a year.

So, there's a town in the middle of this country that's a no-fly-zone and under a media blackout...

Nobody is robbing St. Louis Ink Tattoo Studio anytime soon. Or County Guns, for that matter.
The two north-county businesses share a storefront in a Florissant strip mall less than ten minute drive from the epicenter of last night's riots in Ferguson. After nightfall, what began as a community's peaceful demonstration against the Ferguson Police Department's shooting of unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown turned increasingly violent. Crowds plundered a QuikTrip and burned it to the ground, and local news began reporting brazen raids on other stores in the area.

After hearing of the roving bands of looters, Mike Gutierrez knew he had to protect his tattoo shop. He brought a posse with him, including Adam Weinstein, owner of County Guns, who was acutely worried about criminals getting their hands on his merchandise.

"We didn't want them coming in here and then running around with a bunch of free guns," Weinstein told Daily RFT when we arrive at the store around 12:30 a.m. this morning. Weinstein was outfitted with an assault rifle, pistol and tactical vest. Gutierrez cradled his own rifle in his hands.
notice how they do a better job than the police at protecting private property, and they dont have to march up and down the streets, with tanks, teargas, and rubber bullets shooting at upset and innocent citizens in order to restore peace.

The police are acting like Hamas who hurl bombs at israel and then cry for peace when israel lobs them back.

FTFY.

Also, you capitalized Hamas but spelled Israel with a small "i" twice. This means that you're an anti-semetic, anti-American terrorist sympethizer, which puts most of the stuff in the "why you should be hateful and afraid" thread into a much more logical context.

There's no excuse for the looters/rioter, no. But there's a lot of upset citizens getting a bum deal right now.

Police can't even trespass you from a private property unless the business/property owner asked for them to leave, and I don't think that was the case.

so the way around it is to criminally kidnap a person:

After being placed in a holding cell, he was released with no charges and no explanation. He was denied information about the names and badge numbers of those who arrested him.
