    His attorneys should make a latches argument against her. This took place back in 2007, now it is suddenly a legal issue? Also isn't the civil statute of limitations expired, from a decade ago? Oh an a celebrity make a defamation claim made by another celebrity trying to publicly defend himself from her own statements against him? Totally, frivolous. If this is real, handle is criminally and be done with it. The presents of Gloria Allred makes this thing stink to the 9th Circle of Hell.

    I really don't know what you mean. Are you suggesting that there doesn't need to be compensation, and people should just forgive? If so, then I'll say once again, that's not a solution, but an admission that there is no solution. This line of thinking is reminiscent of the communist response to economists pointing out the problems with communist production: namely, since communism will produce very little, people should just want less.

    Based on the reports, it's not clear to me if Lee just wants the additional credit or wants it to be refundable (aka welfare). If the latter, I am Jack's broken heart...:(

    The one reason to be open to the possibility that Trump may do some good is his choice of Gorsuch and the other judicial picks he has made. Because of that I am taking a "wait and see" approach to some of these "draining the swamp" theories.

    @PierzStyx Would you answer my question re Farms A and B? As owner, Bob's income equals the profits of the farm, and so he has an incentive to maximize its profits; whereas Steve the manager has no such incentive, since his income remains the same regardless of the profitability of the farm. Isn't that true?

    If you mean that plaintiffs have costs in a state system, sure, but lower than they'd be in a stateless society. Moreover, our current system is far from the model for a state system. The major driver of cost is lawyers' fees, which could be dramatically lower if legal licensure were abolished. Beyond that, go to loser-pays, and the successful plaintiff has no costs at all beyond the trivial taxes required to support the court itself (and even that could be eliminated by going to user-fees). Both parties always agree on the contract at the time it's made. But the whole point of a contract is to hold both parties to their agreement over time. If you can't do that, you don't have contracts at all for all practical purposes. There may be (evidently are) people who are willing to abandon contracts altogether in exchange for statelessness, but - as I said earlier - those people are putting anarchism before liberalism, which is all about property rights, including property rights established by contract. The question was: how does a victim of a vandal (or any other property rights violator) get compensated?

    The post you're referring to: A world in which contracts can't be enforced is a world where far fewer contracts are made (because the risk to the lender is much higher). That means fewer mutually beneficial exchanges. I don't know how anyone could think that's a good thing.

    The basic problem in both cases is that the force-wielding entity is expected to forgo using that force for profitable aggression. ...I guess out of zeal for liberty. With national defense, there's the additional problem that the service is non-excludable.

    There's a difference in incentives, as I explained. Suppose there are two farms, A and B. A is owned and managed by Bob. B is owned by no one, and managed by Steve, who draws a fixed salary. Which farm is likely to be more profitable, and why?

    From 2011, Chronic FBI law-breaking: Compelled by a lawsuit, the government was recently forced to release files detailing abuses by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in investigating cases between 2001 and 2008. … the 2,500 heavily redacted files show evidence of chronic abuse at rates far surpassing any previous estimates … In a recently released report analyzing the files, the EFF asserts that between 2003 and 2006 there is evidence that as many as 17,000 abuses may have occurred, “or an average of 4,250 serious intelligence violations per year.” … the FBI “engaged in a number of flagrant legal violations,” including “submitting false or inaccurate declarations to courts; using improper evidence to obtain federal grand jury subpoenas; accessing password protected documents without a warrant.” … Government protocol requires that when such potential or actual abuses are discovered internally, they must be investigated, and a report documenting the abuses needs to be filed with the Intelligence Oversight Board (IOB) … in response to evidence of rampant violations in the FBI’s investigations … “…n average, 2.5 years elapsed between a violation’s occurrence and its eventual reporting to the IOB,” … Further, which abuses are reported is clearly at the FBI’s discretion…

    and the first arctic tanker load goes to.... (wait for it) Desperate Britain Forced To Import Russian Gas From Sanction-Targeted Project http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-12-14/desperate-britain-forced-import-russian-gas-sanction-targeted-project We said two days ago that it’s been a tough week for anybody who needs to heat their home or put gasoline in their cars in Britain. The litany of negative events and mishaps includes extremely low temperatures, the shutdown of the Forties pipeline due to a hairline crack and an explosion at one of the Europe’s biggest gas hubs in Austria, which further tightened UK supplies. As we noted, the price of gas futures surged by the most in 8 years. The timing of the gas hub explosion, as we head into Winter, couldn’t have been worse either.

    Federal Bureau of Investigation, FBI: A Brief Overview of FBI's Long History of Law-breaking and Abuse of Power A 1924 American Civil Liberties Union report warned that the FBI had become “a secret police system of a political character.” In the 1930s, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court feared that the FBI had bugged the conference room where justices privately wrangled over landmark cases, as Tim Weiner noted in his “Enemies: A History of the FBI.” In 1945, President Harry Truman noted that “We want no Gestapo or Secret Police. FBI is tending in that direction.” And FBI chief J. Edgar Hoover compiled a list of 20,000 “potentially or actually dangerous” Americans who could be rounded up and locked away in one of the six detention camps the federal government secretly built in the 1950s. From 1956 through 1971, the FBI’s COINTELPRO program conducted thousands of covert operations to incite street warfare between violent groups, to get people fired, to smear innocent people by portraying them as government informants, to sic the IRS on people, and to cripple or destroy left-wing, communist, white racist, antiwar, and black organizations (including Martin Luther King Jr.). These operations involved vast numbers of warrantless wiretaps and illicit break-ins and resulted in the murder of some black militants. … Sen. Frank Church (D-Idaho) issued a damning report on FBI abuses of power that should be mandatory reading … we learned five years ago that the FBI explicitly teaches its agents that “the FBI has the ability to bend or suspend the law to impinge on the freedom of others.” … an FBI academy ethics course taught new agents that subjects of FBI investigations have "forfeited their right to the truth." … the 2015 Washington Post bombshell about false FBI trial testimony that may have sentenced 32 innocent people to death? … the Branch Davidians — 80 of whom died after the FBI assaulted their ramshackle home with tanks and pyrotechnic devices and collapsed much of the building on their heads even before fires burst out. …
