This was a fun little game. I'm not too sure why they said 18 seconds was "brilliant" though. Felt more like a low average time to me.

In another post about the increase in the minimum wage, I wrote:

""Barack Obama will raise the minimum wage"...from the Obama website.

Free market indeed. Nothing more free about a market than dictating labor cost. Excuse me, comrade, while I read the latest dispatch from the Politburo. Businesses have to pay their employees, right? When the cost of doing business increases for a company due to increased labor costs, they have to do one of two things - cut the workforce or raise prices. Just which of these two options helps the American worker? When a "mom and pop" small business suddenly has its' labor cost rise, through no choice of their own, what will they do? Who is more suited to withstand an increase in labor cost, Mega Corp or Mom and Pop's General Store? Goodbye, Mom and Pop's.

I'm sorry. I forgot - we are "hoping" for a "change" in the economy. If your idea of "change" is the government deciding labor cost in a "free" market, then I "hope" you are not the worker who loses your job."


This is what I was talking about.

Hope and Change, indeed.

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss will be performing at the Asheville Civic Center this Saturday night. I didn't know anything about it until I saw it in today's paper, or I might have tried to get tickets and go.
