Let's look for a silver lining:

Obama gets his agenda boxed by some pro-gun Democrats, RINOs as well as conservatives, neo-cons, paleo-cons, libertarians and/or Tea Partiers as a coalition. Instead of the wedge he wanted to increase between the Republicans, he brings in more of them in the 2014 Congressional elections. Just like events following Obamacare. Then what follows is the HC exchanges do not get funded for his HC to work.

Ha! Ha! Our system of checks and balances will have worked.

My impression of Jackie Chan is that he's kind of a goofy, dumbed down version of Bruce Lee for children. His movies mostly suck but occasionally provide entertainment when paired with a better actor and a decent script/director/producer.

After 1776, America was the leader of this trend. Such countries are the most prosperous, have the largest middle-classes and investment opportunities. But things have moved in the direction of Civil/Roman law since. This would include positivist laws. ( many of our lawyers). There's also colonial law, English common law, Islamic law, Jewish law, Christian law and few other types mixed in. The ones with the least amount of natural law are the riskiest. More corruption follows too.
That is interesting. It's something that makes sense to me intuitively but I've never seen the data.

Jackie Chan is a big fan of silent movie stars Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton so a lot of his films have the same old style, physical comedy tones to them. I like Jackie, he choreographs some of the best fight scenes with some of the most unusual weapons ever. Watch The Big Brawl some time, he fights off a couple of sword wielding bad guys with a saw horse.
But he’s off his rocker here. Maybe he’s been away from doing business in China so long he’s forgotten what it’s like.

I'm not a big fan of slapstick or physical comedy in general.

Yeah, I have yet to see any book on economics make this point, at least this way—not even by the Mises, Fee, Independent Institute, Lew Rockwell. Eventhough one of the places the book is sold from the Mises site. Reading the list and the kinds of laws, which is at the back is an interesting read.

I’m good with some, not with others. It depends on delivery. Like John Ritter and his pratfalls, I never could stand that.

What about Jim Carrey? He uses great physical humor.
