Seven Ways Trump Is Taking Back America's Culture
Andrew Breitbart famously said, “Politics is downstream of culture,” and while establishment Republicans seem unwilling to defend America’s culture and values on many fronts, President Donald Trump is already changing the country’s politics by taking back its culture from progressives.

It's a start, but until we claw back academia from the progressive scum that have infiltrated it from top to bottom we have a long and arduous road ahead of us.

Restaurant Union Member: 'Tipping is a Horrific Legacy from the Days of Slavery'
That is a great quotation. It means absolutely nothing, is historically inaccurate, and is like a flashing light on her head warning others of her blinding stupidity.
Trupti Patel, a member of ROC United who spoke at the press conference, said she’s heard many “horror stories” of sexual harassment from her fellow restaurant workers who keep quiet over fear of losing their jobs. She argued that restaurant servers should not have to rely on tips to earn a living wage.

“Tipping is a horrific legacy from the days of slavery. I know this nation is better than that. Why would we want to uphold something like that? So when you want to pay somebody $2.13 per hour, you still want to encourage all those bad mindsets,” she said.

Mary Campbell works in food service at the Pentagon and uses food stamps, Medicaid and section 8 housing assistance. Campbell said she earns $9.08 per hour and does not receive health benefits.


The last time I checked, slavery was involuntary. Is there anyone here familiar with the coercion used by restaurants (and the Pentagon!) to keep these people from leaving those jobs and looking for other, better paying jobs?

Misanthropic Humanitarian is otherwise engaged, thus the ONTbyDildoTM last night and tonight. For a peek behind the curtain of the complex machinery that keeps AoSHQ running like a top, it's a fair amount of work to produce an ONT, even a slim one such as this evening's, and I am in awe of folks like Maetenloch and CDR M and Misanthropic Humanitarian who did it or do it more than once each week and don't bore us into comas.
