Should airline fares change every second?

The fares for trains, buses, taxis don't change every second. So, why do fares for airlines have to change every second? I understand when the demand is higher people are willing to pay more. But in that case why don't the price of goods like clothes, change every second then? And if it is about change in oil price then why don't the price of buses and taxis change?

I think lives of consumers would be lot simpler if they did not have to worry about the change in price and fly with peace of mind that everyone paid the same price for the same service. If you were travelling by train or bus then you would not have to bother booking months in advance. You would just go to the train station, purchase the ticket and travel. See how convenient. Why can't we have similar experience when it comes to airlines?

Should we bring entire global population to US?

This question was asked by REP. Steve King on http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/310814-2,
time: 00:03:00.

Even though this is a silly question, I would like to answer this with grace. The number of immigrants that should be allowed to come to US should be determined by the demand in the market and not by some magic number proposed by some individual. If there is demand for 6 billion people in US market then trust me US will find a way to accomodate all the people in the world cause that will be in the country's best economic, financial and whatever interest.

Should we deport undocumented immigrants that are member of violent crimes before they commit crimes or should they also have path to citizenship?

This is a question that was asked by REP. Randy Forbes on http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/310814-1 at time: 1:36:00.

They should be treated same as the other american members of the violent gangs. If american gang members are sent to jail before they committed the crime then undocumented immigrants should also be sent to jail and deported, but if the american gang members are not jailed then undocumented immigrants should not be deported until convicted.
