    The last two Republican presidential debates have both featured the audience cheering about death. I personally think the reaction last week, when they cheered the number of executions in Texas under Perry, is far scarier.

    Funny how the press didn't bother to find out about who these audience members were and what they believed / represented....
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I'm sure they were all democratic union members.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    I personally cheer when a murderer is put down .. it's justice, to me... and I like justice.

    One of the Tea Party biggies, a former Flight Attendant, was on CNN with Don Lemon before the debate.

    She was telling him that 'Bankamerica was laying off 30,000 people because of Obamacare' (!) Unchallenged by Lemon of course.

    Like I said, I see nothing wrong with what was yelled out in Tampa. It was politically incorrect at worst.

    What exactly is wrong with cheering on executions? The death penalty is a policy we on the right proudly support..

    You should never enjoy it, even if you agree with it. You do it relcutantly, just as you go to war with a heavy heart. Someone will be hurt by this, someone innocent. Killing anyone, for any reason, just or not, effects someone else.

    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.
