    Haha, I'm with you. I thought I had the wrong clip first time I saw it because it was so miserably anti-climatic.

    Where do you get this 2 to 3 people? You must be listening to a really bad audio track. It is obvious that there are a good number of people responding to the question if he should be allowed to die. How many it is - I do not know. But I hear a good deal more than just a couple of people.

    So do I. I think it is just an attempt to minimalize in order not to acknowledge the points here.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    There was nothing honest about your post. That's why you have to make up a sick fantasy about masturbation.

    I am an audio engineer for a living. There is nothing wrong with the sound in the clip that would stop one from honestly evaluating what is there.

    There is one "Yeah", one "Yes", and one sort of "Wheep"(?). Only. These 2 (or three) affirmative sounds are underpinned by nervous laughter on the part of the rest of the crowd.

    You are just as wrong to pin that on the whole tea party movement as a conservative would be to broadbrush liberal environmentalists because of the actions of certain violent protesters or pot smoking tree sitters.

    But I am beginning to think expecting you to understand reasonable logic is a fools errand unfortunately.

    I am not a sound engineer. I did teach school for 33 years and can tell you without looking if its one kid or two kids or a whole bunch of them talking behind my back. This was not two people.

    What logic has to do with your ears is beyond me --- maybe you can explain that?

    You shouldn't discount the Tea Party. They did cause a large amount of democrats in office to be voted out.
