  1. Is it just me or is the video not loading?

  2. I’ll have to check it out later. Hopefully you guys get to skewer someone like Matt did on his previous episode. That union hack got his ass handed to him.

  3. It’s pretty hilarious to watch someone argue that alcohol prohibition was successful, and violent crime went down during prohibition. Apparently mobsters weren’t that violent. Who knew?

    It’s incredibly cool to see all these Reason staffers on FOX during Stossel’s show. There haven’t been enough media outlets for libertarian ideas to get equal exposure versus the typical Red/Blue exposure. I hope the ratings are working out so more of this continues.

    Great work Mr. Gillespie, Mr. Sullum, and Ms. Postrel. And of course thanks to John Stossel for making this all happen.

  4. Special episoode eh

  5. When are Sullum and Donald Fagen gonna make a new record?

  6. Great job guys.

    “””It’s pretty hilarious to watch someone argue that alcohol prohibition was successful, and violent crime went down during prohibition. Apparently mobsters weren’t that violent. Who knew?””

    The LEO was trying to exclude crime caused by prohibition when he made the violence claim. I like the way he mentioned the drop in domestic violence. If you were drunk and beat your wife prior to the 18th amendment, it counts, but after the 18th, it doesn’t count because it was alcohol related, according to his crime went down if you exclude alcohol related crimes idea. What a tool.

  7. Dum it down for me Stossel!

  8. Well done, guys. Thanks for putting this up. It’s good to have stuff to watch when there is nothing on TV. Which is most of the time.
