Paul Krugman Rejected by His Peers

Actually, Dennis, I believe Krugman won (or was given) the "Nobel Prize." Also, remember that the same award was given to Jimmy Carter, Al Gore (for reading something written by another), and Barack Obama, a few weeks after being elected President, and a year or so before he authorized the use of drones, that generally don't know the difference between a radical muslim and a 5 year old girl standing beside him.
On November 27, David Ruenzel, a writer for the Southern Poverty Law Center, and a white, leftist apologist, who had written dozens of articles, castigating whites for their racism, was shot and killed by two black thugs while walking in the Huckleberry Botanical Gardens in Oakland, California. I've said to my liberal friends, many times - when you are confronted by a black thug, he isn't going to know you're a liberal who "feels his pain."
You watch. McConnell, who sometimes doesn't show a great deal of sense, will take "the high road," and reverse the nuclear option. Sad...
If the powers that be want to truly right a past wrong, they might consider doing something for Corporal Ricardo Binns, Vietnam Recon Marine who was awarded a Navy Cross, but certainly deserved the Medal of Honor.

I had heard of this story, and as a former white Vietnam combat Marine (66-67), I'm appalled at this. We were mostly ignored coming home, but to be treated with such disrespect for those who did make it back after risking their lives in war had to be unimaginable. I'm as conservative as they come, but when I see another Marine all I really see is forest green. Same feeling for all my brothers and sisters in other uniforms. I can only hope that this oversight was at the hands of some bureaucrat, who never heard a shot fired in anger.
And these thugs can just come and go across our borders as they please.

Funny, I was thinking the same thing from the "left coast (Washington)." Never understood why he embraced the Democrat party. He'd make a good, solid Republican.
I spent a year in Iraq and two in Afghanistan as an adviser (my military service was a Marine in Vietnam). There is no "safe" area in either of these countries. Roadside bombs, snipers, mortars do not really care if you're a lawyer or Recon Marine. Even the super-secure "Green Zone" in Baghdad gets hit regularly. Getting to and from the Baghdad Airport, requires travelling the 11 mile BIAP Highway, which was considered the most dangerous road in the World in 2005. On the other side of the coin, the left will use the military when it's to their advantage even though they despise it. Lt Lewis Puller, son of legendary Marine General "Chesty" Puller, and someone who left us far too early, lost both legs and much of both hands to a landmine. He spent the rest of his very short life in constant pain. He ran for Congress against a man who was pictured sitting in the cockpit of a fighter, and someone who hadn't even served in the military. This man stated that he was showing his "strong" support for soldiers. He cleverly realized that most limited information people only look at pictures. He won...
Perot ran against H.W. Bush out of hate, contempt and I'm guessing, jealousy. They were both Texas oil men and Bush had outshone Perot in everything. He knew he'd guppied enough limited information people to split the vote and cost Bush the Presidency. He didn't put the Country first - he put himself first. I see the same thing with the Rand boys. They both need to go back to medicine.

Yet, despite the attacks on the media - AP, FOX and several others, you still very little or nothing about it from the MSM.
