President-elect Barack Hussein Obama has promised to raise taxes and redistribute the wealth in a move right out of the Socialist Handbook.
We need a way to combat his promise and I have one. I’m going to stop leaving tips for those who provide a service and those in the hospitality industry in an effort to pre-empt the future president’s promised tax increases.
The reason for this is simple, those that earn tips don’t make $200k or $120k or whatever the latest figure Team Obama is using to define the middle-class. That means some of my money, according to the Chosen One, is going to be taken from me, against my will and given to them. Well I’ll be damned if I’m going to pay them twice.
Young people, hispanics and blacks, who dominate the hospitality industry, voted overwhelmingly to increase my taxes to make life easier on themselves. They were selfish, so now it’s my turn.
From now on when my family goes to dinner and the baby makes a big mess, I’m not leaving 25%, I’m not leaving 15%, I’m leaving nothing.
No more Christmas tips for the UPS guy, mailman, yard guys, or cleaning crew. I just can’t afford to pay them twice.
When traveling we won’t be leaving tips for the baggage guys, cleaning ladies, or cab drivers. No tips for room service or valet.
We’re tightening our wallet because you voted to take from me and my family.
As Obama said to a quiet crowd while backpedaling in his Grant Park speech, things are going to be tough and you’re going to have to work hard.
