Covetness



There is no secret to getting rich in America.  Study hard and stay in school as long as you can.  Start an entry level position in high school and work hard and be the best you can at your job.  Don't have sex until you are legally married and don't get married until you finish school.  Don't have sex with anyone but your spouse.  Focus on your careers until you are doing well and only then should you have children.  

Save your money and invest carefully for the future.  Don't spend on conspicuous consumption items.  Own your own small business and work there as many hours as possible to hire as few employees as possible.  Never stop learning.  And don't worry about how much other people make.  Income inequality has always existed and always will.


Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbors wife, nor his servant, nor his maid, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is his; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Rich

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/11161150/Are-you-among-the-worlds-wealthiest.html#

The richest people in the world got richer last year.  That's no surpise, the rich often get richer.  Who are the richest people in the world?  Everyone with more that $3,650 dollars is in the richest half.  Too often in America we hear about the super rich who own half of the wealth of the world. 

It's true that a few people control almost half of the wealth in the world.  But what is also true is that they change all the time because other people are getting rich and bumping the old ones off the list.  What is also true is the poor are getting richer too. 

In the United States nearly everyone has a car, a color television, a home, electricity, indoor plumbing, clean water and free education up to high school.  By almost any international or historical standard that's rich.  The greatest health hazard of the poor in the US is obesity.  No famines here; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Judicial Activism

http://eaglerising.com/9747/gay-marriage-debate-really/#

In the United States the people at the state level have voted on the homosexual marriage issue 37 times.  It has failed every single time, even in liberal states like California.  Despite this overwhelming evidence that the people don't want gay marriages to be legal, several state legislatures and many judges have decided that it will be legal.

In colonial times sodomy was a crime that received the death penalty.  In the early history of the United States it was illegal in every state and even carried life imprisonment.  It is absurd to believe that the founding fathers ever had any desire to permit homosexuals to marry each other.  In fact, homosexual behavior was illegal in every state until just recently; the courts made it legal.

The people don't want homosexuals to be able to marry each other and they don't want homosexual acts to be legal.  Yet out of control, activist, leftist judges have legalized both of these practices. The Congress and state legislatures have been too timid to write new laws to replace those struck down by the courts.  The courts have gotten too powerful and too activist; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Victory

Kobani is a town on the border of Syria and Turkey. Turkey is a NATO ally of the USA. Kobani is under siege by ISIS and everyone seems to think it will fall soon and there will be a massacre of civilians. Turkey has troops along their border to keep ISIS out, but will do nothing to stop them from taking Kobani. 

The USA has been hitting ISIS near Kobani with airstrikes to stop ISIS, but now has been saying they only anticipate it will require ISIS to pay a heavy price for taking the city. We have the most powerful military in the world and we can't stop 30,000 guys in Iraq from taking over Kobani and perhaps even Baghdad. 

Our president is a fool and he is making America a laughing stock.  He has no strategy to win, no objectives, no idea how to wage war.  This failure to use enough force only makes the enemy stronger.  There is no second place in war, their is victory or death; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Money

I read a lot of complaints from liberals about the Koch Brothers spending vast amounts of money on Republican causes.  The say the Koch Brothers are buying elections and they are using their money to subvert the political process in favor of conservatives.

They seem to ignore the $50 million that is being spent by Michael Bloomberg to destroy the 2nd Amendment.  They ignore it, not because his is a Republican, but because he is a RINO who is spending the money to destroy rights of honest citizens.  The liberals find him an ally so they ignore his "buying" elections.

They seem to ignore the money spent by George Soros on liberal causes, because they are partisans and don't really care how much money is spent.  They only care about forwarding their liberal agenda, not about the theory of spending money on campaigns.  I believe that in a free society people should be able to spend as much  money they want on any political cause; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Morality

Recently a proponent of same sex marriage asked me why I was opposed to same sex marriage.  They did not think I should be opposed to it because it would not effect me directly.  Should I only worry about issues that won't effect me directly?

If global warming creates a problem for society in 20, to 50 years, why should I care?  I live in the USA and it is unlikely to have any direct effect on me, so why should I care?  If police oppress certain populations in our nation and I am not in that group, then why should I care?

"Ask not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee."  As a traditional, conservative, Christian I believe that homosexual behavior is sinful; in thought, word and deed.  So I don't want our society to endorse behavior that I think is sinful.  The same arguments for same sex marriage hold true for polygamy, and for child marriage.  It's all about the love, it won't effect you anyway, what do you care about what two people do alone in the bedroom.  I do care, and I care about the morals and ethics of our society; we all should; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

A Weaker America

http://freebeacon.com/national-security/russia-deploying-tactical-nuclear-arms-in-crimea/

President Obama has made clear that Russia is not supposed to be in Ukraine because Ukraine is a sovereign state.  President Putin has made clear the Crimea and as much of Ukraine is Russian because he wants it to be and has troops on the ground to make it happen.

President Obama has made it clear that he wants to remove many American tactical nuclear weapons from Western Europe.  President Putin has made it clear that he is moving Russian tactical nuclear weapons to Crimea.  That puts them closer to Western Europe and gives them a better range over those nations and better accuracy.

President Obama has been dismantaling our armed forces, downsizing the military, forcing women into combat roles and requiring the services to take open homosexuals.  Not one general has said that having women in combat will enhance our war fighting ability.  Not one general has said that having homosexuals serving openly will enhance our war fighting ability.  President Obama only wants to score points with his anti-establishment leftist friends rather than make our nation stronger.  As we have to face more and more enemies our nation grows weaker; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
