    Louisiana Senate Staffer Shunned For Picture of "White" Obama

    See the full story here. What do you think? Was this email offensive or racist? Should the staffer has been suspended without pay? (As an aside, read the comments posted with the article, they are quite humorous)

    What is the best way to pay an employee?

    Salary or by the hour? If you are paying by the hour, would that encourage people to drag out projects in an attempt to make more money? However, if you are paying salary, does that encourage people to limit their production since they are going to get paid the same amount either way? Even...

    Is there anything we think the government cannot accomplish?

    Was reading an editorial in the WSJ by Dan Henninger that I thought was pretty good. In part, he comments: Makes you stop and think, every time something bad happens, the reaction is "where was the government?" Sub-prime lending - Why did the government allow it to happen? Katrina - Why...

    There seems to be a whole lot of arguing the point over whether the Constitution used the language "provide" or "promote." So, without going to check, what do you think the Constitution says? Provide, promote, or both?

    Remember How Democrats Demanded A Withdrawal Timeline in Iraq?

    While some Democrats continued to call for a time line, the vote on that issue was opposed 80-18, so clearly it was not very popular. What I find interesting is the blatant flop-flopping from certain Senators, especially Senator Levin (D-Michigan). Take a look at what he had to say about the...
