Health care law now faces U.S. consumer

President Obama handily defeated congressional Republicans in the political fight over his health care law. But the law will now face a much tougher opponent -- the creativity of Americans determined to gain more control over their own health care decisions. The end result will be a system much different than the president hopes for -- and his opponents fear.

Wages and discrimination

Let's work through an example. Suppose 100 yards of fence could be built using one of two techniques. You could hire three low-skilled workers for $15 each, or you could hire one high-skilled worker for $40. Either way, you get the same 100 yards of fence built. If you sought maximum profits, which production technique would you employ? I'm guessing that you'd hire one high-skilled worker and pay him $40 rather than hire three low-skilled workers for $15 each. Your labor costs would be $40 rather than $45.

E-SPLOST can make our schools better

My mother always tells me people should avoid two topics: religion and politics. While I'm typically not a rule-follower per se, I agree with her on this. However, I'm going to break that rule right now and say that while most people like to pontificate on the "liberal media," I am pretty conservative about a lot of things – especially when it comes to my money.
