New Details on Tennessee Gunman Emerging After Deadly Attack on Military Centers

Gary Kaltbaum: Well, look, I think our youth are fine. I think some of our youth are not fine. I have no interest in being Dr. Phil in getting one of these people in a room and talk it out. The bottom line is evil is evil. If they want to get in with places like ISIS, that all they have in life is to murder people and rape people and destroy, god bless you, guess what's going to happen? You're either going to be dead or going to jail for the rest of your life, simple as that.

Ben Stein: Well, insanity and evil, no respect to persons, look, we have something like 35 million people in the -- maybe more -- in the age group from 20 to 30, only incredibly tiny percentage of them turn out to do anything terroristic or alleged to be terroristic. Our young people are basically fine people, sure a lot use dope, also a lot start tech companies. But these people don't represent anything but their own insane selves.

Charles Gasparino: I mean, listen, we have sex education in schools, you know, we might want to address this stuff. We teach our kids a lot of stupid stuff, you know. Understanding terrorism and this sort of appeal, it's starting to appeal. They're starting to try to appeal to this demographic that they believe there are exploitable. I don't know why schools don't step up to the plate. I see why, it's too politically correct to do that, but that's my opinion.

Dagen McDowell: But like some of the people who knew the shooter down in Chattanooga, in high school, described him as not an outsider, so even interaction with people at school, very often someone radicalized by a terror organization, not related to the Chattanooga shooter, but they're doing it on the Internet where no one else is seeing what they're doing because they're on the Internet, that's where they're essentially living. Frankly, Charles, nice car doesn't cure crazy.

Adam Lashinsky: The school -- when I went to school -- and I don't -- when you went to school, roughly the same time – I don't think things have changed schools teach current events, what's go on in the world. We should teach more of it.

Hillary Clinton's Profit-Sharing Plan Fueling Fierce Debate

Gary Kaltbaum:  Charles, when I hear Hillary Clinton talking economics and corporations having to share, two words come to mind and that's oy vey. Bottom line for me is, look, the bottom line is -- well done, Ben -- look, corporations are dealing with 70,000 pages of tax code, 70,000 pages of regulations, mandates, fees, health care, you name it. Now you're going to tell them what they have to pay everybody else. Very simple, if you demand mandate companies, more pay, higher pay, they are going to react in a way and it's less people working at higher cost to consumers.

Adam Lashinsky: What -- what Clinton suggested was a tax incentive for companies which is a time-honored and, by the way, conservative and capitalistic practice.

Ben Stein: Well, it is a little bit scary. And I think we're going to have problems. My beloved L.A. raising the minimum wage it will drive garment manufacturers out of town. The idea of mandating profit sharing is not a bad idea. It's going to teach people how to care about profits and they want to get in on it as much as they can by buying stock beyond whatever's mandated by the government.

Dagen McDowell : I saw this – I just saw this – I saw this as a kind suggestion from Hillary Clinton about I'm suggesting that you share your profits because if you don't, I'm going to come in and share them for you.

Charlie Gasparino: The problem with the approach that was, you know, exemplified in the speech and was obtuse you couldn't understand what she was saying, how to would be paid, how would this work. Hillary Clinton, right now is running the most fatuous campaign out there.

Jetblue Releases New Etiquette Video: 'How Not to Board a Flight'

Charles Payne: The way the airlines treat us is a crime against humanity. I am really mad at the airlines.

Dagen McDowell: Flyers are just mad because the planes are actually full, and they got used to being on planes when they were going bankrupt, and, by the way, if you act like a 3-year-old, Jetblue is going to be your daddy, and that's what's going on. People act like children.

Gary Kaltbaum: My only complaint is prices keep going up. Look, I think it's convenient. I think the airlines do the best job. There's a lot of people flying.  I don't know where ben is coming from on how bad this is, but I fly just about every week. They do a fine job.

Adam Lashinsky: Well, you're a big guy, Charles. I sympathize with you being squeezed into those seats. I think they do a really good job of moving us around the world safely.

Charlie Gasparino: I will say this. You go on a flight, and you see people, no doubt about it, but the airlines make it worse.
