Krugman: NRA an ´insane


Original Article

Posted By:James Leyva, 2/4/2013 11:15:48 AM

The current debate over guns has revealed the National Rifle Association as an “insane organization,” Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman said on Sunday. The New York Times columnist said on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday political roundtable that some pro-gun advocates “have this vision we’re living in a ‘Mad Max’ movie.”

That beady eyed little liar who finds it amusing to hang political opponents in efigy would know insane.

Krugman is not a neutral, competent commentator on the subject of sanity.

Seriously - Krugman commenting on ´insanity´ is a bit like a rabid dog commenting on dental hygiene...

Never a dull moment. I grew up in NYC. Guns were illegal there, and I can´t count the number of guns I saw in Manhattan.

Curiously - liberals can´t seem to get a handle on how stupid they are in this area. No law of *any* kind - will deter a criminal. Tip to Paul - that´s why they´re known as criminals.

Elsewhere, there are actually people known as ´journalists´. Krugman jumped that shark some time ago...

This a man who supports abortion - millions are killed. So, who is exactly insane?

Let these progressive, liberal, socialists,
Democrats rant. Gun owners will not vote for these nuts for a host of reasons.

insanity is, Paul, doing the same thing over and over (like deficit spending w.o results) and expecting a different outcome.

The NRA should send him a thank you note, that stupid statement should be worth another half million new NRA members. If I were not already a member, I´d be signing up today if for no other reason than to irritate that baboon. I might consider starting a new membership in his name just for fun!

Typical liberal tripe. So the NRA, which has over 4 million dues-paying members (grassroots organization if ever there was one) is ´an insane organization´ but Krugman (one man - hopefully one vote), who has been wrong almost every time he opens his mouth is sane? Typical.

The Krugmans of this world have created the coming "Mad Max" scenario that they fear so much.

It´s not the NRA that feels the need to alter the language,corrupt the culture, suppress free speech, debase the currency and borrow our children into oblivion.

But should that scorched earth,post apocalyptic world come to America I plan to have a bigger and faster and louder dune buggy than Paul.

I am a member of the NRA and basically, part of the organization. I am not insane, but, maybe according to a liberal and the media, I am because I support the Constitution. It has held us in good stead over almost 250 years. Until the current administration and its media friends who are trying to negate it came along, it has served us well.

The NRA is a civil rights organization.
Krugman, delusional as always, and his ilk are doing their incompetent, irrational best to make a Mad Max scenario actually come to fruition.

The concept that police actually have a duty to make you safe as an individual has been litigated repeatedly and refuted.

FACT: You, individually, have exactly as much security as you bring with you, and no more. The police provide an investigative capability to try to catch crimials AFTER the crime, and general peace keeping. This is not a complaint about police, just a recognition of how the world really works. Sometimes they do arrive in time to stop a crime, but it is sadly, unusual.

Krugman lives on another planet, in addition the fact that he is delusional.

Mackenzie Weinger? Paul Krugman? In a sane world, these two know-nothing idiots would be mocked, ridiculed, and laughed at by everyone. But we live in upside-down bizarro world where jerks like these two worship choom-boy Barry Soetoro for his skeet-shooting and his curtain-hanging.
The NYTimes is a cesspool of queer writers and columnists who seem bent on changing everything traditional and weakening our nation and our resolve, and to that purpose I must say to them...SCREW YOU!

It was that every time I saw Krugman´s portrait all I could see and hear was "Hamster Dance"; now the mere mention of his last name or seeing it in print fosters the same reaction.

President Obama plans to travel to Boston Wednesday to defend his mandatory health insurance program, a visit to the intellectual birthplace of the law as the White House attempts to recover from computer problems that have plagued the new marketplace website. Obama will deliver remarks at Faneuil Hall, from the same spot where Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor and Obama’s rival in the 2012 election, signed the Bay State’s landmark health care law in 2006. “It is the Massachusetts experience that shows you what happens when people put politics aside and make sure that people are covered,” said David

The company chosen by the Obama administration to oversee the repair of the new federal health insurance Web site faced questions from lawmakers a year ago about whether it was an appropriate choice for earlier work on the site, given that it is owned by the country’s largest health insurance company. Columbia-based Quality Software Services Inc. — known as QSSI — was purchased by ­United­Health Group in September 2012, months after it was picked by the Department of Health and Human Services to help set up the Affordable Care Act Web site. That called for work on three areas: build

Health Law Fails to Keep

As technical failures bedevil the rollout of President Obama’s health care law, evidence is emerging that one of the program’s loftiest goals — to encourage competition among insurers in an effort to keep costs low — is falling short for many rural Americans. While competition is intense in many populous regions, rural areas and small towns have far fewer carriers offering plans in the law’s online exchanges. Those places, many of them poor, are being asked to choose from some of the highest-priced plans in the 34 states where the federal government is running the health insurance marketplaces, a review

In a federal court building in downtown Detroit, beginning on Wednesday morning, the largest municipal bankruptcy filing in U.S. history comes down to a single question: Is Detroit bankrupt? Federal bankruptcy judge Steven Rhodes will begin hearing arguments on the crucial issue of whether Detroit is eligible to restructure its debts and liabilities under Chapter 9 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code that applies to municipalities. The hearings will pit retirees, pension funds and unions trying to preserve retirement payments to city workers against Detroit´s state-appointed emergency manager, charged with righting the city´s finances.

She said the volume of people coming to the site “caused some problems but it also exposed some additional problems.” Sebelius would not answer questions about reports of prelaunch testing that may have signaled problems with the site before it opened to the public, nor would she give specifics

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it."

I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
