SJR8 Straight Out of Fight Club

Mark and Paul talk about SJR8, why it is fake tort reform designed to let foreign companies write off killing your family as a cost of doing business, and that might not be the worst part of the bill!


UPDATE: They have amended the resolution to double the damages, but its still wrong. And even if this was the "right" number for today, they proposed to hard-wire it into the state constitution where it is very difficult to change and normally takes two years to change anyway. You know what does not take two years to change? The value of the currency you are paying damages with! If we have a dollar crisis and the dollar loses half its value too bad. We would have hard-wired in numbers calculated in a fiat currency with no intrinsic value.
