Krugman: NRA an ´insane
organization´

Politico, by MACKENZIE WEINGER

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...

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

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.

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

President Barack Obama delivered remarks Monday at the White House addressing the mounting criticism of the troubled rollout of the Obamacare website. Here are the 10 notable quotes. 1. “Nobody’s madder than me about the fact that the website isn’t working as well as it should, which means it’s gonna get fixed.” 2. “You can get your questions answered by real people, 24 hours a day, in 150 different languages. The phone number for these call centers is: 1-800-318-2596. I want to repeat that: 1-800-318-2596…although I admit that the wait times probably might go up a little bit now that I’ve read the number out loud on national television.”

President Barack Obama averaged a 44.5% job approval rating during his 19th quarter in office, a decline of more than three percentage points from his 18th quarter. That is one of the largest quarter-to-quarter declines of his presidency, behind a nine-point drop in his third quarter and a six-point drop in his 11th quarter.The 19th quarter, which ran from July 20-Oct. 19, is now the third in a row in which Obama´s job approval rating has declined. The current slump followed five consecutive quarters -- the 12th through the 16th -- of higher job approval.

Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton formally endorsed Virginia gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe on Saturday, signifying her first high-profile public foray into elective politics since leaving her post earlier this year. Mrs. Clinton helped fire up an overflow crowd of an estimated 800 people at the State Theater in Falls Church there to support Mr. McAuliffe, a former Democratic National Committee Chairman and prolific fundraiser who was a rainmaker for President Clinton during the 1990s.

Congress is trying to get Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius – who in any sane government would be “former HHS secretary” by now – to testify about the disastrous ObamaCare rollout. She is reportedly resisting these demands, which again should be grounds for dismissal. In the Obama era, top officials have become entirely too comfortable with refusing to testify, invoking the Fifth Amendment, and committing perjury. But you can see why Sebelius would be reluctant to answer questions from Congress, because on previous occasions, it hasn’t gone well for her.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday.

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
