Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton has announced she is running for president.  Jeb Bush is considering running for president too.  I believe that we should not have an oligarchy running the nation.  I think it was wrong for the second George Bush to run for president.

I think that we need new people in Washington.  We don't need the same tired old faces rotating in and out of the White House.  We don't need to select from a tiny click of people, and particularly select from people in the same family.

I think it is particularly egregious for Hillary Clinton to run for president.  As a former First Lady she should have devoted her offices to public service performing some greater good. Certainly their could have been a homeless shelter, or research into a dreaded disease that could have benefited from her assistance in fund raising and administration.  By running for senate, by being Secretary of State and now by running for President again I think she is simply demonstrating her arrogance, her pride and her desire for power; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Rich Got Richer

 
The richest American saw their incomes increase last year, the bottom 80% saw their incomes decline.  It is good news that the rich are getting richer.  It is bad news that the poor and middle class are suffering.
 
The government needs to work on job creation.  That does not mean government jobs or government subsidized jobs.  It means creating real jobs that create real wealth.  Rather than require transfer payments, encourage the rich to invest their money.  Encourage them to buy airplanes, yachts, new houses and fancy cars.  
 
Middle class people can then be employed flying airplanes, making yachts, selling houses, customizing cars and doing other good paying jobs.  We need to move away from the politics of envy, and covetousness.  We need to encourage the rich to employ people, to give to legitimate charities, and to bring jobs back from Communist China; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Jobs

http://cnsnews.com/news/article/ali-meyer/americans-not-labor-force-exceed-93-million-first-time-627-labor-force

 The percentage of the American labor force that is not working is over 60%.  There are over 90 million American adults who are not only not working, but they are not even looking for work.  Some of that can be explained by Americans getting older and so they are retired.

The greatest explanation is that Americans have stopped looking for work because there is no work to be found.  Unemployment has remained high and most of the reason it has been falling in the last few years is that people are giving up looking for work.

The US needs to bring back jobs from overseas. We need to develop new technologies and keep their manufacturing here by cutting taxes, cutting regulations, and giving every possible incentive to create jobs.  We need to turn on our economy, create millions of jobs, deport illegal aliens so those jobs go to Americans and get people working again; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Liberal Media

Over the last few years of watching television with my wife I have told her about the liberal media slant that is shown in so many television shows and movies.  One show we like is Bones.  It's a crime drama about a woman forensic scientist who works with her husband an FBI agent to solve murders.

He is depicted as a conservative Roman Catholic and she is a dispassionate, atheist.  When the show started there was a bit of give and take between them and sometimes one or the other would make a point in their favor.Over the years the show has drifted and the true colors of the liberal media have shown through. 

The FBI agent lived with a woman without benefit of clergy.  He had sex and even a child with the woman without them being married.  Now their witty repartee has been reduced to the atheist lecturing the Roman Catholic on the logic and benefits of atheism and the foolishness of Christianity.  The FBI agent is reduced to replying with little more than a shrug and a grunt.  The liberal media makes everything political; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Pro-Life

http://www.lifenews.com/2015/04/06/pro-abortion-obama-attorney-general-nominee-loretta-lynch-gets-republican-support/

President Obama is trying to get a pro-abortion nominee for Attorney General through the Senate for confirmation.  The Republican party platform has an anti-abortion plank in it.  The majority of Senators are Republican.  It would seem she is doomed.

But wait.  At least five Republicans have come forward and said they are willing to vote for her nomination.  Why is that?  This has been the problem with Republicans for the last 40 years.  They don't follow their own stated principles.  This is way people say there is no difference between the two parties.

Those Republicans who vote for her should face strong challenges in the primary and should not get national Republican money in their re-election.  The Republican leadership needs to discipline their members and get them on board with the platform.  We voted Republican because we are pro-life, having them vote pro-abortion is a betrayal of that vote; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Women in Combat

http://www.military.com/daily-news/2015/04/05/surveys-special-operations-troops-doubt-women-can-do-the-job.html?comp=1198882887570&rank=2 

Surveys show that American special operations troops doubt that women can do the job as well as men can.  They are also concerned that the standards will be lowered so that women can qualify for the job.  The military already uses a multi-tiered physical fitness standard with lower standards for women and older soldiers.

Of course they will lower standards.  Gays serving openly in the military and women in combat has nothing to do with combat effectiveness.  It has to do with political correctness.  It has to do with getting women and gays into positions of power that they have been denied.  No general ever said we would have won a particular battle if only we had more women or homosexuals in our units.

I have seen them pass women who were not qualified only because they were women.  They will officially or unofficially lower the standards until they get the number of women they want in these units no matter what the cost in readiness; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Brontosaurus

http://www.popularmechanics.com/science/animals/a14948/the-brontosaurus-is-back/?src=TrueAnth_POPMECHANICS_TW&utm_campaign=trueAnthem%3A+Trending+Content&utm_content=5523c87704d3015452000001&utm_medium=trueAnthem&utm_source=twitter

The science is settled.  There is no reason to discuss the issue any longer.  Anyone who does not view these facts the way we do is simply denying the truth.  The people who think that way should be censored and their views not published.  I have heard all this about global warming.

People who support global warming don't seem to know how science works.  You create a hypothesis, make predictions based on the hypothesis and then collect data to compare to the prediction.  Then you refine your hypothesis.  It is a continuous process.

We see this today with Brontosaurus.  He was found to be an Apatosaurus.  The science was settled, everyone knew Brontosaurus was defunct.  Until scientists looked closer at the data and found that maybe he is a real dinosaur after all, and not an Apatosaurus.  Maybe science should look at global warming again too, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
