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.”
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.
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!
Tuesday... I have to struggle not to talk about this every day. I know that that would be counterproductive if I did, and I never want to get to the point where you say, "Come on, Rush, get off of it, move on to something else." That would be very bad. That´s why I don´t repeat a lot of points that I make. That´s why I don´t push my own stuff all the time, ´cause this is a program about the issues and the country and so forth. But Tuesday, October the 29th, my first book since 1993 -- 20
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
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
A new round of finger-pointing will kick off Thursday morning when a House committee grills four contractors involved in the development of Healthcare.gov, the troubled site where uninsured consumers are supposed to be able to sign up for health insurance. CGI Federal and UnitedHealth GroupUNH -1.23%’s Optum/Quality Software Services Inc. subsidiary, the two leading contractors that helped develop the site are expected to get the most questions at the ominously titled hearing “PPACA Implementation Failures: Didn’t Know or Didn’t Disclose?” According to a House Energy and Commerce
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.
President Obama’s top official in charge of the Obamacare rollout had few answers for CNN’s Sanjay Gupta when he questioned her about the glitches plaguing HealthCare.gov in an interview Tuesday night. “We are not at all satisfied with the workings of the website,” Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said. 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
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
