Careful, It's Dusty Out Today...

Jacqueline in Texas sent in this story. It's a good antidote to the previous one.

Boss selling restaurant to save employee with brain tumor
Along Highway 105 in Montgomery, you'll find the Kaiserhof Restaurant and Wunderbar. You'll also find a waitress extraordinaire named Brittany Mathis.

"I have my good days and my bad," said Mathis.

The 19-year-old employee doesn't look or sound sick, but she is -- and everyone at the authentic German restaurant knows it.
So, how does her boss handle it? Does he fire her before she can sue him for medical insurance? Does he cut her hours so he doesn't have to pay her health insurance? No, he went the opposite direction.

He's going to sell the restaurant and help her pay off her medical bills. 

Now, he's getting out of the business anyways, saying he wants to spend more time with his family. Given how the restaurant business works, that's not surprising - 15 hour days are a short day. Thing is, he owes her exactly nothing, yet he's going to help her out at this crucial time, because that's what people do.

And that's why the leftists can't stand the thought of self-reliance - because it means one less person dependent on government largesse that they can control at some point in the future.

That is all.

Gonna have to look that restaurant up. Might be worth the trip (Texas is a BIIIIG place, y'all) just to leave a large tip!
