    NRA membership up 250,000 in three weeks. That’s $6.25 million in dues. Sure, they’rtre going to fire Wayne LaPierre. But keep trying to divert attention from Fox News’s domination of the ratings (however undeserved that may be)

  • Sam

    @ Pundit,

    “NRA membership up 250,000 in three weeks. That’s $6.25 million in dues. Sure, they’rtre going to fire Wayne LaPierre”

    Too bad our children have to die and be forgotten because of a degenerate organization that only cares about profits. BTW LaPierre receives over a million dollar salary, another degenerate CEO who claims to put the people’s agenda first.

    I’m glad that the NRA dared to f*** with the media, film and video games industries which far more powerful than the NRA. The NRA should expect a vicious attacks ( which they deserve btw ) from these industries to influence younger audiences who are proving themselves to be very valuable in elections. The NRA membership consist of older white males whom importance is diminishing everyday.

  • Ratboy

    @ The NRA membership consist of older white males whom importance is diminishing everyday.

    Is this and uneducated guess or based on some fact?

  • Mark2


    If only those 250,000 people would’ve voted for Romney, maybe he would’ve won the eection…NOT!!! LOL

  • usa8888

    Pundit–Piers Morgan is doing great on CNN and his show last night put the squeeze on the soon to be definct management of the NRA. It appears pundit is stuck in the dinosaur era along with other right wing fringe people. Larry King is at home on the retirement range……….

  • usa8888

    Pundit–the NRA is heavily discounting NRA memberships and the non NRA lobby group added 3 times the number of members in the past week as the NRA>….

  • usa8888

    Pundit–the NRA’s member don’t agree with its right wing fringe leadership and want them changed, according to recent polls….The stone La Pierre and his white haired boss are soon to be fired……

  • usa8888

    THe right wing fringe GOP is trying their best to gerrymander districts in hopes of winning the next presidential election because they know they can never win without a non-rigged vote…….But their aren’t nearly enough right wing kooks anymore to elect the loonies the right wingers are putting forward. Bachmann, who can’t count to 10, is the last of these dinosaurs to come through…..

  • Hoppy

    “The righties usually claim that their right to bear arm is to defend them against domestic tyranny. My question is, what will your rifle do against a tyranny with F-16?s and nuclear weapons ?”

    Well, a bunch of little scrawny guys in Southeast Asia managed to chase ’em back home.

  • Ratboy

    FOX wins everu hour from 5 on overall and in the key demo


    OReilly beats EVERY MSNBC show in the key demo with his……….RERUN!


    And Anderson Cooer only lost the key demo to Schultz by 251 – 250


    :lol: :lol:

  • usa8888

    The presidential election results analysis showed that only lowly educated (only highschool) white males favored Robme and Lian Ryan…….

  • usa8888

    Fox is moving downwards in the demo and MSNBC and CNN are coming up. If Fox loses the old people, they are done…..

  • Ratboy

    @ the NRA is heavily discounting NRA memberships

    Is this an uneducated guess or a fact?

  • usa8888


  • DB

    In the grand tradition of usa888.

    Finally, it is official according to a recent survey, 84 percent of the voters who voted for Obama realize now they made a mistake. The majority of democrats in the Senate now say that Obama should be impeached. A study by somebody now says the majority of Gay people realize their lifestyle is perverted and they hope to change their ways. All of the American people now know Harry Reid is a little weasel that takes bribes. The majority of the NRA has stated they love their management and feel they deserve raises. Another recent study shows that the majority of Americans now realize that Obama is a communist born in Kenya who cares nothing about children but will use them to try go bring even more control of the American people by the Federal Government. Finally, a survey of all the people of the world indicates that stupid people like usa888 don’t realize they are stupid.Another recent study shows that viewers of Mathews, Shultz and Maddow have IQ’s in the teens. This study also determined that Maddow is the least intelligent human on TV except for all the others on MSNBC. You can look all of this up!!

  • betty

    Mr. Greg Gutfeld is the natural heir-apparent for Mr. Bill O’Reilly.
    Bill is 63 and doesn’t plan to continue into doddering old age….such as
    Dan Blather…Tom Brokenlaw…Cris Tingles…Diane Sawya…and that old
    stand-by Baba Wawa.
    Greg is young, smart, sharp, interesting,etc., he’s ready.
    Did I mention ” clean and articulate” ?

  • HRJ

    Can’t we all just get along?

    Guns will never be outlawed. However; guns should be in the hands of responsible people.

  • DB

    HRJ, well that means Obama and the dems in the Senate will never have guns because they are responsible for nothing.

  • betty

    P.S. the SALARY for Mr.Wayne LaPierre….800 Thousand “PLUS”.
    The N.R.A. can thank Mr. Obama for a HUGE Increase in membership A N D in
    gun ownership….with no end in sight.
