utilizing customer service tips to making up the hourly taxable wage up to federal minimum wage standard. Huh ? These tips are enormous when compared to taxed income. It should be unlawful to place a tip jar or donation jar in a business. It puts frugal spenders in a bad light.

"In its poll from Apr. 4-7, Gallup surveyed 1,005 adults by telephone and asked, “What do you think is the most important problem facing the country today?”

Respondents answered in the following order:

Economy in general 24%

Unemployment/Jobs 18%

Dissatisfaction with Government 16%

Federal budget deficit/Federal debt 11%

Healthcare 6%

Gun Control 4%

BBBWHAHAHAHAH!

Gallup poll. Only 4% of the public think gun control an important issue. Congress got it correct this time in killing the bill.

The majority of elected representatives voting the voice of the people said " No" They saw what was in the bill befor voting.Where oh where do they come up with these percentages ? 90 %. Ninety percent of Americans support the latest gun bill ? Were you asked ? Didn't think so. When the greater majority clearly says no odd marriages, the talking heads didn't go on TV and say Americans overwhelmingly oppose same gender stuff. No. They said fewer people oppose than previous. Take another bite from the back side of the apple while nobody notices.

The simple solution to this problem would to create a law that says if you commit a crime, using a fire arm, you go to jail for life. No questions, no excuses. A law like that would delineate exactly who a responsible gun owner is. But our politicians are too cowardly to take the problem head on. They would rather take away our personal freedoms and allow the real criminals to roam free. We need LEADERS with nads! Not these jack wagons who in their own opinion consider themselves leaders, some of us know the difference!

This awful bill would have violated HIPAA and doctor-patient confidentiality by letting doctors put your name in the national criminal background check system without telling you, simply because you ever were prescribed an anti-anxiety drug or sought counseling. Yeah, even if your dr. prescribed an antidepressant for insomnia or back pain, you would be deemed too crazy to own a gun by Joe Manchin's bill.
