Secrets

Bradley Manning released thousands of classified documents and he is in prison.  Eric Snowden is on the run in Russia.  Hillary Clinton has been accused to at best poor handling of classified materials.  Several others in the Obama Administration have leaked classified information too.

It seems to have run rampant that the narcissistic, self indulgent people are convinced that the rules don't apply to them.  They can handle classified documents how they want.  They can decide if and what they will release to the public.

They will determine how they will handle such documents.  They don't care about the law.  They don't care about best practices.  They lie and obscure the truth.  We need a special prosecutor to look not just at Hillary Clinton, but the security controls of the whole administration.  Knowledge is power and we are giving up too much power to our enemies; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Narcissism

It is important to have good self esteem.  It is important to feel good about yourself.  Every human is made in the image of God.  We are all valuable because we can worship God.  We can all contribute to society in some way.

In our society we have taken self esteem and feeling good about yourself to extremes.  We have become a nation of narcissists.  We care only about ourselves.  We don't want to do anything unless it is for our immediate and personal benefit.

We shout out, "Who is God to tell me what to do!"  We see our fellow humans as less than ourselves.  We see something bad happen and we think only to videotape it, rather than to help.  We want a film to show our friends.  We are too narcissistic to care that we are bankrupting our nation with welfare.  We need to get better at being part of the human family; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Jobs

People need jobs.  Not public sector make work programs.  Not jobs where the Federal government pays for some and the private sector or local government pays for the rest.  Real jobs in the private sector. 

We used to import shoes from Communist China and they were $40 a pair compared to the similar American made shoe at $200 a pair.  It was a good deal for people who lived in America and did not work in the shoe manufacturing industry.

Now the Communist Chinese shoes cost $200 and and the American shoes are generally unavailable unless you look hard for them.  They ran most of the American shoe companies out of the shoe business.  And we lost all those jobs.  But unpatriotic American businessmen took all those jobs, sent them overseas and made a fortune.  We need to bring those jobs back and put Americans to work; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Jobs

I am glad Donald Trump is running for president.  While I don't expect him to get the Republican nomination, I do hope he will support whoever does get it.  I think he has been keying into many of the concerns that average Americans have had that Republicans in Name Only, the main stream media and the Democrats have just glossed over.

We have to go to the supermarket and see foreigners who don't speak English pay with an EBT card, our money.  We see our neighborhoods that used to be safe, become hotbeds of crime because illegal aliens are living in large numbers in houses and apartments made for a lot less people.

We see no jobs for teenagers in our cities because adult illegal aliens are doing them.  Want a first time job mowing lawns, busing tables, or working in a car wash?  Forget it, they are all filled by people who should not be here.  We still have high unemployment and the lowest ever labor participation rate.  People need jobs, not amnesty; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Japan and WWII

Seventy years ago the United States dropped two atomic bombs on Japan.  Japan started the war and committed many war crimes.  People keep complaining that Japan needs to apologize for their actions in the war.  They also complain that the people of Japan need to be punished for World War Two.

I hold specific governments and particular individuals responsible for their individual actions. The government of Japan of today is not the government of WWII. The vast majority of people in Japan today have no responsibility for what happened in WWII.

I do not believe in the collective guilt of a nation or society. Japan is a great nation and an important ally of the West. The people of Japan today have nothing to apologize for because they did not do anything wrong; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Rangers Lead the Way

  http://allenbwest.com/2015/08/obama-is-going-to-army-ranger-graduation-this-week-to-force-this-to-happen/

If the President says women will be in the Rangers then there will be women in the Rangers.  No matter how qualified.  Ranger school is very difficult and most men don't pass.  There are only a very limited number of places in the school open for soldiers  If the President says women will be in the Rangers, then there will be women in the Rangers.  No matter who else won't get a slot.  

Rangers are an elite combat force.  Rangers don't sit in offices and operate computers or control drones.  They go on dangerous missions, often behind enemy lines.  They are required to be in top physical condition.  It's not a job for women.

Did Obama run on a platform of putting American women in combat roles?   Is there a huge groundswell of Americans agitating for women in combat?  Do the American people know what happens when American women have been captured by Radical Muslims?  Women should not be in combat; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Gun Rights

The Veterans Administration and the Social Security Administration have been trying to take away the guns from millions of Americans.  They seem to think that if a person can't take care of their financial affairs they should not own a gun.

The ability to handle money is not the same as the ability to handle a gun.  A person who is poor at math or who just not want to bother with money should not have his gun rights taken away.  No right should be taken away without a hearing.

The Second Amendment is a right, not a suggestion.  Social Security and the VA should never take away the gun rights of people who no longer control their money.  People should not lose their rights unless they have a specific reason.  Only after a hearing by a judge should someone lose their rights; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
