John Stossel joins Reason TV to ask the Question: Is this the End of Tipping?
Activists and Nanny governments have been on a tear to “help” workers by raising the minimum wage. This may sound to many like a great idea, that is until your job is the one that gets the axe because your company can’t afford to pay everyone the increase.
But what about restaurant workers who make relatively little in salary, but instead earn the majority of their pay in tips. Many of these workers don’t want the minimum wage increase, as they make far more in tips.

San Francisco: The City of Bans
At times, it’s impossible to guess which things progressives want to ban — and which ones they want to mandate and subsidize. Think of New York City’s approach to electric bicycles. My guess would have been that the city would subsidize those environmentally friendly modes of transportation like other liberal cities do, given how much cleaner they are than taxis and buses. But until last April, officials there had viewed them as unsafe and intrusive and even had confiscated e-bikes from those caught riding them on the city’s streets and sidewalks.
NASA has revealed an incredible image of a gigantic ‘whirlpool’ of algae in the Baltic sea.
Every summer, phytoplankton spread across the northern basins of the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, with blooms spanning hundreds and sometimes thousands of kilometers.
Blooms this summer off of Scandinavia seem to be particularly intense, NASA said.

GOP Sens meet with Trump to get him to support weak-on-crime laws
You can’t make this stuff up. The president criticizes the Koch brothers for their stance on crime and immigration. He then peppers every one of his candidate endorsements with an assessment of that candidate’s views on crime. Clearly, the president is the only one who even focuses on this issue. Good for him. But thanks to jailbreak Jared Kushner, Trump is getting sucked into one of the Koch’s biggest priorities – passing a bill that will retroactively release a number of violent drug traffickers and criminal aliens from federal prison…during a time when we’re experiencing one of the worst drug crises in our history!

Abortion Pill Fast-Tracked by Clinton Kills 22 Women, Causes Infections, Hemorrhaging — FDA Makes it Easier, Cheaper to Get
A controversial abortion drug rushed through the government’s approval process by the Clinton administration has killed nearly two dozen women and produced serious adverse effects in thousands of others, according to records obtained by Judicial Watch. Nearly 100 women who took the drug (Mifeprex) had ectopic pregnancies, the records show, and hundreds of others required blood transfusions and hospitalization. Judicial Watch has investigated the government’s handling of Mifeprex, also known as RU-486, since the Clinton administration aggressively shoved the abortion pill through the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) approval process in an effort to appease radical pro-abortion activists.
