Iran has been arming insurgents who are fighting Americans in Iraq. Now Iran is actually seizing Iraqi territory. Is this because they are building nuclear weapons and feel that other nations won't attack them now that they have a nuclear umbrella? Or is it because the Obama Administration has shown such international weakness that they no longer fear attack by the United States in particular? Iran fought an inconclusive war against Iraq for ten years under Saddam. There is no reason to thing that Iran would not be willing to go to war against Iraq again they felt they could gain an advantage, such as more oil. The US must be willing to push Iran out of this Iraqi territory. An immediate response is necessary. Any delay is a sign of weakness and indecision. Weakness and indecision give more power to the enemy. Time to react, and more important, gives them time to make other inflammatory moves. They can also wage a propaganda war against us claiming that since we did not immediately counter-attack that we knew they had a right to be there. The US is a superpower and needs to act like one; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The North Koreans imprison, torture and isolate their people. Being in prison in North Korea is like being inside a prison in a prison. The Obama Administration has not confirmed the capture of the missionary. The Obama Administration will have to grovel and send another special envoy to get him back. The North Koreans are not afraid of the power of the US because the Obama Administration is too scared to use that power. The reputation of the United States is again about to be driven into the dirt by a Third World nation. For a nation to be a major power it must have respect from the other nations of the world. The deterrent factor of nuclear weapons and major weapons systems is useless if no one thinks you will ever use them; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://newsrealblog.com/2009/12/23/chairman-mao-adorns-white-house-christmas-tree/ Rather than celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace, the White House celebrates Chairman of the Communist Party Mao. The greatest mass murderer of all time does not belong on an ornament in the White House. While I agree that he should have hung on a tree, it is too late now for justice to be served to his victims for his many atrocities. Our main stream media ignores him or even celebrates him. Mao was a vicious dictator and oppressed a billion people. Even today his legacy lives on in religious persecution, forced abortion, one party rule, and limited freedoms of today's Red China. Chairman Mao has no place in the White House, even as a Christmas tree decoration. The White House under President Obama has made many foolish mistakes since they have been in office, this is another on; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://is.gd/56XvU There is good evidence that much of the information supporting global warming is false, misleading, or improperly reported. This combines to give the impression that global warming is at best not as bad as claimed or at worst, not happening at all. I have not seen much information about global warming that shows we need to do much of anything to stop it. The story of the Earth is the story of change. The Earth goes through hot and cold cycles and the continents themselves actually move into warmer or colder areas. If the ozone layer is being destroyed, perhaps we could look at doing things that produce more ozone. It can't be anymore expensive than destroying our entire economy and giving up our freedoms; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

I have seen several articles recently about people wondering about seceding from the Union, forming militias, and the possibility of civil war here in the United States. What's that all about. We conservatives lose one election and suddenly we have to form our own country? Many good people have worked very hard to give us our liberties, and the checks and balances in our system. Let's try and figure this out first before we start stocking up on ammunition. Rather than spend $3,000 on an assault rifle, maybe we should each give $3,000 to politicians and political action committees who are working toward the goals we all share. Join the National Rifle Association. Give money to the Republican party, and to those who are bringing lawsuits against the Obama Administration. There is plenty to do now. Inform your friends and relatives of what the Obama Administration is doing to reduce our liberties. Write letters to your Representatives in Congress and your Senators. These are all better, and more effective than preaching revolution; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Domestic Terror Incidents Hit a Peak in 2009 - TIME 2008 was the worst year for the War on Islamic Terrorism here in the United States. The main stream media has generally ignored the fact that we are less safe from Islamic terror than in anytime when the Republicans were in charge. Our President and Congress are interested in health care and spending trillions of dollars that we don't have on stimulating the economy. They are not really interested in prosecuting the War on Islamist Terrorists. Rather, they fall into the trap of closing Guantanamo prison, giving civil rights to foreign terrorists who are not entitled to the rights of US citizens, and trying to get out of Iraqi. The enemies of Christendom are at the gates. What we do every day moves us closer to enslavement or freedom. Our enemies will never stop until they are crushed or they win. We need to focus on the destruction of our enemies, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Rep. Peter King: Why Was Known Terror Suspect Allowed to Fly? -- Politics Daily The War on Terror has become a snoozer for most people. The government is becoming complacent. Even our President is not acting with a sense of urgency. He appoints his own general to run the war in Afghanistan, and then takes months to make a determination to send in 75% of the reinforcements his own general asked to have sent. Now a known terrorist suspect has been allowed to fly on an airliner and he tried to bring down the plane. The enemy only has to continue to wage the war. They know that as long as they keep up the attacks, as long as they apply a little pressure here and a little pressure there that eventually the Free World will just get tired and give up. It worked in Afghanistan against the Soviet Union. They just kept the war going, knowing that they did not have to win in the conventional sense. They just had to out wait the enemy. Now the enemy is just trying to out wait us. We have had troops in South Korea for sixty years. The War on Islamic Terrorists has been going on only since 9/11 and now after only ten years we are tired of it. This is just what the enemy wants, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Mexico City Lawmakers Approve Gay Marriage - Sphere News The decline of Western Civilization continues as gay marriage has been approved in Mexico. Once a bastion of the Catholic faith, they are now embracing the secular humanist religion. The deviant and illegal has now become legal. The protections enjoyed by traditional marriage are now being extended to what was once reviled as ungodly and unnatural. The civilized world has never recognized marriage between two people of the same sex. Now there are more places that have determined that this is a proper role for the state. To go against both God, nature and thousands of years of tradition and the wishes of the majority of their populations to make same sex marriage legal. In the USA 37 states have put same sex marriage to a popular vote and it has failed in every case. Only in those few places were radical liberal activist judges or legislatures who buckled under pressure from vocal minorities has same sex marriage become legal. A sad day for Mexico, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2009/06/05/muslim-child-and-friends-behead-man-while-praising-allah-video/ A video that shows kids beheading a man, while they praise their radical Islamic god. Children brutally killing a man by cutting off his head. When I was a kid my dad too me to the park and we played ball, and Frisbee. Sometimes we went fishing, and sometimes we went to the zoo. We never cut any ones head off. Not once. Radical Islam is a terrible and dangerous ideology. They want to restore the caliphate, and then cause it to rule over the world. They are willing to do that by force if necessary to make it happen. They will have to use force because the secular humanist, Hindus, and Christians don't want it to happen. The Hindus and the Christians are fighting. The secular humanists are doing their best to hamstring us with lawsuits, concerns of fairness, and equality. I don't want to be equal to serial murderers. I don't want to fight fair against those who want to kill me or my wife or my child, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Pregnant US Soldiers in Iraq Could Face Court Marshal - Sphere News Soldiers should be become pregnant when they are in combat zones. In my opinion, soldiers should not get pregnant at all. Soldiers should be physically fit and ready for combat at all times. The stress on our much too small military has caused us to place women in far too many places. There have been many recent stories of women, particularly single mothers, who can't deploy because they have no child care for their children. The military is a unique job. On that job rests the freedoms of our nation. It is not a place for social experimentation. It is not a place for political correctness. It is a place only for the best person to do the job. In the military, service members have to make sacrifices, everyday, in war and in peace. Long hours, physical training, risk of life are common place in the military. Those are not circumstances for pregnant women; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

3D Blu-ray players coming; time to update yours? I wanted a video cassette player the moment I first saw one in the early 1970's. Within a few years I got my first VHS video player / recorder. Soon, I figured out that I could pay $20 a month for cable TV movie channel or I could buy one movie a month. Over a period of a few years, I knew I would have a nice video collection. Eventually, I had over five hundred videos. Then they came out with laser discs. I got a couple hundred of them. Then, they were obsolete and you could not get them or the players any longer. I resisted getting DVD, planning on skipping the format, knowing that something else would come along eventually. Then, a friend of mine who worked for Radio Shack, got me a cheapo DVD player. The dam burst, and now I have hundreds of DVDs. I am now trying to avoid Blu-Ray. And for good reason it seems, now there is a D version. So, another opportunity to replace all my videos, again; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.mercyseat.net Sometimes people tell me that you cannot legislate morality. That phrase is false on it's face. We regulate morality all the time. In California, it is illegal to marry a person you are related to, you can't marry your mother, your father, your son, or daughter. You cannot marry someone under the age of 18 without their parents consent. Both parties must be of the opposite sex to get married. We have all these restrictions because we legislate morality. There is no practical reason to prevent a brother and sister from getting married. In the past, there was a concern about them passing on genetic disease, but the pair could get sterilized and stop that problem. We stop those two from getting married because we as a society have determined that it would be immoral for them to be together as husband and wife. These restrictions have been very constant among civilized peoples all over the world for as long as there have been civilizations. While small groups or for short periods of time there have been exceptions, these restrictions have always been part of the main stream. They should continue to be so, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2009/10/21/nullification-firearms-freedom-act-introduced-in-ohio Many states have ratified firearms freedom acts and others are considering them. The Federal Government regulates firearms under the theory that since the gun makers are engaged in interstate commerce, the Federal Government has jurisdiction. Firearms freedom acts seek to nullify this authority based on the Tenth Amendment to the Bill of Rights of the Constitution. The idea is that if a gun is made in a certain state, is only sold in that state and is marked made in that state, then it is not subject to Federal firearms regulations, since the company is not engaged in interstate commerce. This seems a perfectly proper way for states to get the types of firearms their citizens want, without having to force their views on other states. If California is happy to be heavily regulated by the Federal Government, but Texas wants little Federal interference in the types of guns that Texans are permitted to own, than this seems a great way to achieve that goal. I like it, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.cnn.com/2009/US/11/05/texas.fort.hood.shootings/index.html A gunman killed a dozen people in Fort Hood, Texas. None of the soldiers had weapons. On an Army Base. People that are trained and screened to defend our nation, and they are not allowed weapons, even when on duty. The Second Amendment to the Constitution says the ...Right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Yet, our soldiers can't have guns. They can't carry firearms on the base. They are defenders of our rights, and they don't have the same rights we enjoy. All members of our military should be given permission to carry weapons at all times. A hundred years ago, that was not uncommon. Fifty years ago, troops always had weapons in their barracks. As recently as 30 years ago in my high school ROTC classes we had access to military rifles almost anytime. No mass shootings of students or soldiers then; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

President George Washington, father of our country, proclaimed in 1789: "Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor - and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint committee requested me to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness." Separation of church and state? I don't see that in this document. One would think that George Washington in his official duties would be able to conform to the law and would understand the intent of the framers of our Constitution. There is also mention of both Houses of Congress requesting George Washington to ask for a day of prayer, again these are politicians who were there when the nation was founded. They don't seem to be too concerned about the separation of church and state. Today too many of those in political power seem to be trying to protect the people from religion, as in freedom from religion, rather than freedom of religion. A totally unnecessary precaution, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://downloads.cbn.com/cbnnewsplayer/cbnPlayer.swf?aid=11991 Americans are fighting an enemy that is at war with Western Civilization. The United States of America is not really fighting as if this were a serious war. Too much of what we are doing is for political correctness and not for winning the war. The US and it's allies should not have reconstituted the government of Iraq and Afghanistan this soon. We should have kept those nations under our occupation as we did Japan and Germany after World War Two. We destroyed desire to go to war in those nations and rebuilt them as modern democracies. That is what we should have been doing to Iraq and Afghanistan. Now we have the rebuilt Afghanistan dictating to the US on how to run the war. They have been complaining about how the war is being run and as a result we have come up with new rules of engagement that endanger our troops. The Afghan Army wants to follow a restrictive rule of engagement then they should be permitted to do so, but they should not tie the hands of the foreign troops fighting there; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20091118/ap_on_re_af/piracy A US flagged ship was attacked by pirates, but the were fought off by private security guards armed with firearms and sonic weapons. This is what should be happening to every one of these pirate attacks. The use of private firearms to protect shipping has a very long history. For centuries private ships carried cannon, rifles and other small arms to protect themselves in dangerous waters. This does not require governments to keep thousands of sailors and dozens of ships in the area patrolling to protect ships. The ships can protect themselves if they are permitted to arm themselves. The navies should take action to seize the mother ships and the strike against the harbors where these attacks happen. The navies should be capturing and executing the pirates that they find. The navies should be responding when a ship calls for help, but in the meantime the ship should not be helpless, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.debka.com/headline.php?hid=6393 Islamist Extremists blew up a train station in Russia. This was not long after a bomb attack on the train killed or injured over a hundred people. The Russian and American governments need to realize that we face a common enemy and work together to solve this problem. International Islamist Extremists have replaced International Communists as the greatest threat to international peace. They are attacking Russia almost daily. With their huge Muslim populations in Russia it is easy for those planning acts of terror to move to places in Russia where they can attack a subway, a train, a school. The Russians have been fighting this battle for a long time and it could be helpful if more American police and military officials conducted operations with them to learn the techniques they employ. It would also be helpful if we could coordinate intelligence with them on radical Islam. In the post-Cold War World, the Russians are not really the enemy; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Bret Stephens: Climategate: Follow the Money - WSJ.com Those who "fight" global warning try to pretend that they are simply doing this to fight the evil corporations intent on destroying the planet. They are humanitarians and not in it for the money. Unless you follow the money trail. Billions of dollars a year are being spent on green and climate research and equipment. Companies are being bullied to giving money to support green efforts to be shown as responsible members of the community. Global warming experts publish books, movies and pocket thousands even millions of dollars. Experts in global warming research have found to have suppressed dissent, and manipulated data in order to advance their agenda. Apparently the most important green is the cash, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

mental_floss Blog » The Late Movies: Dogs Welcoming Home Soldiers This video shows how we all should respond to our soldiers coming home from the war. The War Against Islamic Extremists will continue for at least another fifty years and it is important to let our soldiers know that we appreciate what they are doing for us. Even those who take no active combat role face dangers every day from attack. The soldiers at Fort Hood were not even in a combat zone and were killed or wounded by a Muslim Extremist. Everything our soldiers do can get them killed. Car bombs and suicide bombs and active shooters take their toll, even in safe areas. Even soldiers that don't see any combat at all are away from their homes and their families. They work for low pay, they work nights, weekends and holidays in the cold and wet. Our soldiers deserve a great welcome when they come home; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-deathrow11-2009nov11,0,597884.story In California the death penalty is such a joke that the inmates actually ask for it to get better living conditions. We execute so few criminals that inmates sentenced to death are more likely to die of old age, disease or murder by other inmates than they are to actually be executed. Then we wonder how come our crime rate is so high! The US justice system needs to spend more money. More money on crime scene investigation, more money on detectives and training of detectives, to solve more cases. The intent is to solve more cases. Capture more crooks and get good convictions. Then we need to start executing more criminals. In my opinion, anyone convicted of murder with special circumstances should have his appeals over within a year and be executed. Criminals should not wait for decades for the death chamber. Judges should not be able to delay appeals while they study cases for decades when they know there is no legitimate reason to delay. Five hundred murders a year demands a like number of executions, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/russia/6711353/Deadly-Russian-train-blast-claimed-by-Chechen-rebels.html Muslim extremist terrorists blow up a train in Russia. Western media naturally ignores the obvious and simply calls them "Chechen rebels." This is one of the reasons that the populace don't understand the nature of this war. International Muslim extremists work together towards a common goal. They want to take over the world.The goal of radical Islam has always been to take over the world for Islam. They have always spread Islam by the sword. That's why so many of those churches mentioned in the Bible are no longer located in Christian parts of the world. They are not in Muslim parts of the world, that got that way by the sword.One of the goals of our intervention in places like Iraq should be to secure the basic liberties that Western nations enjoy. Freedom of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion should be part of our war goals. German and Japan are friendly prosperous nations now after they were transformed into Western style democracies. That should be our goals now too; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.newswithviews.com/Daubenmire/dave171.htm The phrase "separation of church and state" does not appear in the constitution. Yet our courts, our Congress and many others keep telling us that this or that practice is illegal due to this separation of church and state. How can something that is not the law, be the basis for declaring an act illegal? Prayer in the public schools was legal from the start of the republic until the Supreme Court said it was illegal in 1962. How can hundreds of millions of Americans do something for centuries and suddenly be told that act is illegal? Liberals have been trying to beat down the Christian roots of America for at least the last one hundred years. They have been winning many of their battles in the last sixty years. They are trying to replace the true Christian God with their god of secular humanism. I think the election of President Obama was their peak and we can pray for change, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Yet, humans kill millions of chickens every year. Cows are not endangered. Yet humans kill millions of cows every year. Elephants are endangered, and humans kill very few of them, yet their numbers continue to dwindle. That's because people can't make a living off of elephants. The poor people in Third World countries need to have jobs, incomes, a sustainable way of life. Allowing them to manage their resources so that they can live off the bounty of their nations. Anti-poaching police have arrested dozens of people in an ivory hunting criminal gang. They will now, most likely burn the ivory. Rather than burn the ivory, it should go on the market. Flood the market with ivory and bring the price down. Use the money to set up elephant farms. Give photo safaris and occasional hunting safari's to rich tourists from Asia, the US and Europe. Give the women jobs carving the ivory. Make the exportation of uncarved ivory or ivory that weights more than a couple ounces illegal. Give jobs to people who don't have any. Give hope where there is none and use market forces to save elephants rather than kill them. That's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

December 7, 1941 a date that will live in infamy. September 11, 2001 the date of the World Trade Center attacks. The United States was never attacked because it was too strong. When the US was weak, our enemies took advantage of that weakness and attacked us. Our immigration laws were weak, and poorly enforced so our enemies came here, then overstayed their visas to attack us. We let them in and we let them stay. We need to have an impenetrable barrier for our border. We need to eject those who overstay their visas. Our intelligence services must be strong enough to be able to detect potential threats. They must be able to operate in such a way that they can take action to defend our nation against attack. They must have the confidence of our elected officials, rather than have elected officials threaten to prosecute them. When we capture our enemies they must stay in prison for the duration of the war. The do not deserve, nor should they get, trials in American courts. They are not Americans and should not be given the Constitutional protections afforded to American citizens. We must be strong and prevent the next attack; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://townhall.com/columnists/KenBlackwell/2009/11/14/china_and_forced_abortions?page=full The Communist People's Republic of China continues to force women to have abortions. They try and put on the happy face in the Olympics and by being more open to business development, but underneath it all they are still a Communist dictatorship that does not value the individual. The government wants women to limit themselves to one child. Any woman who fails to limit herself to one child risks a forced abortion. Abortion is not only legal, it is mandatory for many. The godless Communists don't care about the value of the individual human life, they care only about the collective. They have determined that it is better for the collective that women only have one child, no matter what. This oppresses women by causing them to endure a major medical procedure against their will. It also discriminates further against women because Chinese culture values males over females to carry on the family line. That causes many to abandon their female babies, or to kill them. This leads to more males being born than females. Even now male Chinese are finding it hard to find mates because the male / female ratio has been skewed by these forced abortion. Communists, disrupting the natural order of things; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

"Amendment 28: Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators or Representatives, and Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States." I did not come up with this idea, but I certainly think it is a good one. Right now private businesses are burdened with loads of regulation that don't apply to the Congress. The Congress exempts themselves from the same laws that they force on us. If they are good laws, then they need to apply to Congress too. If the laws are not good laws, then Congress will be more interested in repealing them. Congress is exempt from laws about hiring discrimination. So if a Congressman wants to have an all male or all female staff, then they legally can do so without facing charges of discrimination. If they want to hire all Blacks, or Christians, or Muslims, they can do that too, without worries of discrimination. If a private company does that, they have broken the law. Congress should not be able to exempt themselves from the laws they make the rest of us obey; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

US treaty inspections to end at Russia missile plant: report The Obama Administration continues to bungle foreign policy. The Bush Administration was ready to deploy a missile defense system in Eastern Europe, including Poland. The Poles have been great Allies. They stood with us against the Nazis in WWII and when they threw off the yoke of Communist they started dominoes that collapsed Communist in Europe. Then they joined us in the fight against radical Islam and terrorism in Iraq. The Poles were ready to stand up against Russia and allow missile defense to be deployed on their territory. The Russians hinted that if the Obama Administration were to drop missile defense, they would sign a treaty to permit continued US inspections of Russian missile production. Now the Obama Administration has dropped missile defense in Poland and has failed to secure continued missile production inspection of Russia as well. They are making mistakes by relying on our competitors and our enemies to live up to agreements that don't have any leverage behind them. We should have continued with missile defense rather than rely on treaties. Treaties are just paper and they make a poor defense against missiles, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://bit.ly/4pWRTz Iran has said they are starting work on ten new nuclear plants. They have told us they they don't want to build nuclear weapons. They have told us they don't have nuclear plants. Then they told us they had a couple nuclear plants. Now they tell us they are building more of those plants they initially did not have at all. How soon before they tell us they are building nuclear weapons after all? The amount of nuclear material they will be able to make can allow them to make dozens of nuclear weapons per year. Will Israel, Italy, Russia, the United States, France be safer with an Iran with nuclear weapons? The West must act now to stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons. I suspect that when Iran has nuclear weapons they will at first try and blackmail and threaten other nations. If that does not work, I suspect that a few stray weapons will find their way into the hands of terror groups. Then, if that does not get Iran what they want, they will use their own nuclear weapons to get what they want. Iran does not care about how many of their own people will be killed, they proved that in the war against Saddam as long as they achieve their objectives; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/InfidelsAreCool/~3/CH5JXk1paeI/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email The War on Islamic Terror is a war. We are not really fighting it as a war against Islam. We are pretending that Islam does not really have any actual involvement in the war. Those who are Islamic are fighting this war and they get help from other Muslims. The extreme radicals are getting help from moderates. We are not vetting people well enough to keep the radicals from getting information that they should not get. An American Army Major spews radical threats, and we ignore it. Moderate Muslims work for the US government to interrogate our enemies, but they actually help not only us, but the enemy as well. We are not really fighting an all out war, but our enemies are fighting an all out war. Listen to their speeches, read what they write, and watch how they behave. This is happening all over the world. Muslim terrorists attack nearly every day. It is all the same war. We need to treat it as such, and fight for victory; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Local News Maurice Clemmons, man wanted for questioning, has troubling criminal history Seattle Times Newspaper Governor Mike Huckabee released this man when he was in prison in Alabama. Governor Huckabee should never run for national office again. This was a huge error and it came back to roost and took the lives of four police officers in the process. Those officers and yes, even the suspect would almost certainly be alive today if he had not released that suspect. A man is tried, found guilty and sentenced to prison for a very long time. That man has a long criminal history. He did not make a mistake. He did not have an error in judgement. He did something evil. He was caught and he was sentenced. It should take a very good reason to allow that person to ever be free again before his full sentence has been served. The excuse that the man was young and made a bad choice is not good enough. There are other young men who were starting the police academy and working hard to learn the job of police officer. Young men who were taking a oath to serve their communities and die if need be to keep that community safe. Those same young men were killed by the man who was released. Governor Mike Huckabee should never run for national office again; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
http://www.spacewar.com/reports/Taiwan_says_China_starts_building_first_aircraft_carrier_999.html An aircraft carrier is being built by the Communist People's Republic of China. The reason to build aircraft carriers is to project power beyond your borders. The US built aircraft carriers for that reason. Our interests are all over the world. Whenever there is an international crisis one of the first things they ask is, where are the aircraft carriers? The allow the United States Navy to enforce the will of the United States nearly anywhere in the world within a thousand miles of the ocean. The Chinese are building an aircraft carrier. They can then project power beyond their borders. Taiwan is beyond their borders. Having an aircraft carrier will allow the Communist Chinese to attack Taiwan from two directions at once. The Panama Canal is beyond their borders. In the 1920s, and 1930s people laughed and ignored that the Japanese were building aircraft carriers. We did not ignore them so much after Pearl Harbor. We still have a fleet in Pearl Harbor waiting for another Asian Superpower to attack, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

(http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/author/major_shawn_keller/) The government is telling us that we don't need to have the right to keep and bear arms. They are telling us that guns are bad. The best thing we can do is to restrict who can carry guns. Make areas safe by designating them as gun free zones. The military base at Fort Hood was a safe gun free zone. No one was allowed to carry a gun there. The same men and women who carry assault rifles, machine guns, grenades, grenade launchers, machine guns, rocket launchers are not allowed to carry a pistol when not on active combat. There is no case to say that they are not competent. There is no case to say that they are not trustworthy. There is no case to say that they don't have a need for guns. Our soldiers should be armed anytime they are in uniform. So those who protect us, can protect themselves, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The US Third Circuit Court has banned "Silent Night" but allows "Frosty the Snowman." 85% of the people of the United States self identify as Christians, yet the courts claim that singing a song about that Christian belief is such a terrible thing to do that it cannot be tolerated. There are more Christians than any other single group in the United States but their own tax dollars are constantly being spent to tell them that the things that they believe will not be taught in the very schools that they pay for! The motto of the US is "In God We Trust." This is now and has always been a Christian nation. Any reading of the founders will show that they were building a nation on the principles of the Christian Bible, both Old and New Testaments. Yet, our courts act as if the Founding Fathers revolted against the Almighty, rather than the English. A single letter from Thomas Jefferson speaks of a separation of church and state. It is not in the Constitution, Bill of Rights or any other law. It is not found anywhere in the writings of the founders, apart from that one letter. There is a separation of church and state in that there is no religious test to hold office or vote, that is what they were doing, trying to prevent the situation that had existed in England where only members of the Church of England were able to hold power. They were not trying to protect us from little children being taught to sing Christmas carols; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Obama Administration wants us to think that prices for health care will decrease if Obamacare passes. How do prices go down in other industries and will these same factors decrease the cost of health care? A product is made by cheap labor from overseas. I don't think we can outsource our health care any further. The workers spend less time of each individual unit. Do you want your doctor to spend less time with you, so he can see more patients every hour? The producers of the service are in oversupply so they cut their prices to gain market share. There will be no doctors, nurses or hospitals added under Obamacare, so this won't happen to health care. The raw materials go down in price, so the finished product can be cheaper. Do you really think the price of health care is so high because band aids cost so much? Obamacare will not decrease costs because it does nothing to address the market factors that make health care so expensive; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

North Korea threatens South over naval clash - Yahoo! News Why does North Korea still have a navy? North Korea is working on building nuclear weapons. North Korea exports missiles and missile technology. Why does North Korea still have a merchant marine? They use it to carry missiles and missile technology to our real and potential enemies around the world. The United States has the most powerful navy in the world. We should be using it to blockade the North Koreans until they agree to stop making nuclear weapons. Instead, the North Koreans are attacking the South Koreans. The Obama Administration is very busy working on taking over the nations health care, and stopping global warming. They are too busy to worry that our enemies are developing nuclear weapons. We need to take action to stop that work; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

In September we were told by the government that there would be 40 million doses of vaccine for the H1N1 virus distributed. As of November there are fewer than 27 million and nearly six million people infected with the disease and perhaps as many as 4,000 of them have died. This is the same Obama Administration that says there will 20 million doses of the vaccine per week rolling out of the drug companies, yet so far, only have that many are being made. How many more people must die because the Obama Administration is mismanaging this crisis? Fewer than 1,900 people were killed by Hurricane Katrina, an event with only about two days notice. Yet the media hounded the Bush Administration for this tragic loss of life until President Obama took over the office. Now twice as many people are dead, from a crisis that has been brewing for years and the Obama Administration is getting a pass from the media. These deaths were preventable, if there had been enough vaccine. Instead of vaccine, we are told to cover our mouths when we cough and wash our hands. It is the Obama Administration that is washing it's hands, of the deaths of 4,000 people; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

House Narrowly Passes Historic Health Care Bill -- Politics Daily The Obamacare bill is working it's way towards being law. There is still a chance or two to defeat it and if it does pass there will be a lot of resistance towards it. This "health" law is trying to accomplish many liberal ideas under the guise of health insurance for all. More government control of the civilian economy. More government intrusion into the churches. More opportunities to push the gay and abortion agendas. More chances to move towards a ban on civilian ownership of firearms. That's what the liberals want to do, but they know that the majority of the population will not stand for that agenda. The churches are already getting in line to oppose much of this bill and it is not even law yet. I anticipate that there will be many lawsuits filed to prevent the implementation of this bill, should it actually become law. There will also be energised conservatives to run against the liberals who have rammed this bill along in the elections next year; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/InfidelsAreCool/~3/ZgsiU5jU4FU/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email Every year large numbers of Filipinos leave their country to work in other parts of the world. They work hard and send money back to their families in the Philippines. Many come here to the USA, where there is a large Filipino community. Many go to the Middle East as well. The Philippines sent representatives to the United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. They spoke to citizens there about the treatment of Filipinos in those Muslim nations. Their conclusion is that their conditions are so bad that the government will consider stopping people from the Philippines from going there to work. The Muslim world has a long tradition of slavery and even today there are Muslim slave traders in Africa. Now the situation has gotten so bad in parts of the Middle East that workers sent there to get temporary jobs so they can send money home are being treated as little more than slaves. It seems that a nation that practices even moderate Islam can be a difficult place for non-Muslims to live in; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZS7Jdg24j4 The liberals want to take our guns away. President Obama and the Congress want to pass medical legislation that includes gun control measures. They know that the people don't want gun control, so they hide it from us in a medical bill. The government does not trust us with our guns. In Oregon, the government schools and the courts tell a teacher she can't carry a gun. Naturally, the government schools and the courts don't give her a guarantee of safety, despite taking away her right to self defense. When faced with a criminal, who by definition as a criminal will not comply with gun control laws, who has a gun, the best defense is another gun. That's why police carry guns. That's why armored car guards carry guns. The don't carry pepper spray or batons to use against gun wielding criminals, they carry guns. God made men, Samuel Colt made them equal, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Oregon Court of Appeals Rejects English Teacher Shirley Katz's Request to Bring Gun to School A woman got a concealed weapons permit to allow her to carry a firearm for her protection. She is worried that her ex-husband may try and harm her and so she thinks she needs a gun to protect herself. She works as a teacher and the school districts says she can't bring a gun to school. They went to court and the court has said she has no right to bring a gun to school. The courts and the school district have also failed to provide her with a guarantee of protection. So if her ex-husband does show up at school, in the classroom, or in the parking lot, she is on her own to defend herself. She can't defend herself, because the courts and the school district have taken that right away from her. Apparently the school district and the courts trust her ex-husband more than she does. Of course, school districts and courts have also restricted the right of teachers to pray in school, so she can't appeal to the Almighty for protection from her ex-husband either. They also restrict her right of freedom of assembly, so she can't bring several large friends with her to keep her safe either. Perhaps they will require that she quarter soldiers in her home in time of peace, that might keep her safe and violate her third amendment constitutional rights, so the courts might like that. Of course, the incident at Fort Hood does not provide confidence that soldiers could protect her either; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

2012 isn't the end of the world, Mayans insist - Yahoo! News A viral marketing campaign tries to tell people that there is some validity to 2012 being the end of the world. Another movie marketing campaign was placing strange, complex computer devices under bridges and along transportation hubs and creating bomb scares. Companies are trying to sell their products and promote their movies using techniques that seem spontaneous and unrelated to actual sales. These campaigns are irresponsible and deceptive. People should be able to have some trust in the media and to intentionally use it to promote products while using a sock puppet identity is wrong. The other problem with this technique is that it creates fear that the situation is real. People have called police thinking they found a terrorist bomb. People have called suicide hot lines because they think the world is coming to an end as a result of movie advertising. I am very pro-business. But businesses need to be responsible in their products, their practices, and their advertising. Viral marketing is not good business, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Read the Full Story — Go Here Now President Obama has bowed to the Emperor of Japan. This is the first time in the history of the Republic that an American President has bowed to a foreign leader. The President is the representative of the American people and he should never bow to any foreign leader. This is an outrage! President Obama continually makes these kinds of diplomatic mistakes. In the lifetime of many Americans, the Japanese Emperor was a symbol of danger and totalitarianism. We defeated Japan and then after the war we helped them rebuild into a modern and free democratic nation. The Japanese are our great friends and allies. They even sent troops to Iraq to help fight Radical Islam. I have nothing against our Japanese friends. I am opposed to the President of the United States bowing to any foreign leader or royalty. It is un-democratic and un-American. FDR did not bow to the King of England during World War Two. President Obama should not bow down to any royalty today; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Alexis Hutchinson Refuses Deployment to Afghanistan to Care for Infant Son Soldier is to be sent to Afghanistan and suddenly does not have childcare. The soldier needs to get childcare or go to prison. If the soldier faces prison, the soldier will find childcare. There is no excuse to be in the National Guard or Armed Forces Reserves and not have proper care coordinated for children, disabled parents, or even for your dog. I was in the Army Reserve for many years and was able to leave on a moments notice, despite a child and a disabled wife. The nation depends on the military reserve forces and each member of those forces needs to be able to deploy on a moments notice. Hurricane, invasion, terrorist attack, or on-going long term war. Any of those may require deployment and in some cases within even hours. That means no matter what your personal life is like, soldiers must be ready to deploy in hours, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

District nixes cash-for-grades fundraiser - Education - NewsObserver.com A school district wants to raise money, so they offer to sell the ability to improve a grade. The intent of school is to teach children information that they need. Teaching them that they can buy things they should work for is a very poor moral lesson. Schools should be run by people who want to impart knowledge to young people. They should be run by people who see education as a calling, not a career. There are many jobs that should be done by people who need to do the job, police officer, fireman, nurse, doctor, and teacher are some of those jobs. Selling grades is immoral and those who come up with this type of idea should be fired immediately. They serve as a poor example to the children they teach. Children need to earn their grades by their own hard work, not by the size of their fundraising; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

YouTube - 1930s Futuristic Fashion Predictions
This video shows a short from the 1930s about how fashion will look in the future. The clothing is interesting, but not much like clothing that really was worn in their future. Humans are not really very good at predicting the future.
The farther into the future humans try to look the worse our track record has been. I remember being told we were heading into an ice age. For years we were told temperatures were getting colder and that great ice sheets would be covering North America some day.
Now we are being told that global warming is melting our polar ice caps. We are told oceans will rise and there could be serious damage to the ecology of the planet. I don't believe that we can really predict the future that well that we should be too worried about it; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.nytimes.com/2009/11/10/business/energy-environment/10nukes.html?_r=2&ref=global The US is using nuclear materials from weapons deactivated from the former USSR. As the Cold War weapons are being dismantled the materials are being used for the peaceful generation of atomic energy. The solution to our energy needs is to use nuclear power generation. The power generated by wind and solar and geothermal are only 3% of the power used in the USA. Every type of power has disadvantages. Wind requires huge, complex, noisy windmills that only work when the wind blows. Solar only works during the day and requires a large surface area. Geothermal is only best in limited areas. Hydroelectric power blocks salmon from spawning and creates other water problems. Coal can cause pollution unless it is the new clean coal, but also must be transported and mined. Oil is expensive and the money goes overseas, often to our enemies. Nuclear power is safe, clean, and renewable with no greenhouse gases; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Trade-Off: Why we'll solve traffic jams with information, not more roads -- DailyFinance Information to solve is a great idea, but tracking individuals cars, where they go and what they do is not the job of the government. If the government wants traffic to move smoother, they can look to themselves to help solve the problem. The courts generally only operate during the week and during the the day, yet crime operates 24/7. Why not operate the courts 24/7? Get the crooks in off the street and then right to court. Don't hold people in jail from Friday night to Monday morning because the judge wants to take the weekend off, take the suspects right to court and arraign them right away. Making more government services operate at night and on weekends, at least on Saturday, will cut traffic at peak hours. Let the welfare offices stay open from two in the afternoon until ten at night. There is no need for welfare recipient's to have to drive during the same hours as the working people. The unused capacity of the roadways can be better utilized by making the government operate more at night and on weekends, it won't cost any more money, and we can start Monday; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/11/10/AR2009111017588.html Chinese conduct cyberwarfare against America. They hacked the computers of both the McCain and Obama presidential campaigns. The Chinese are continuing to develop their skills at asymmetrical warfare. They know that in an actual shooting war the United States military forces would destroy them in any potential conventional conflict. They, like the radical Muslims, are trying to develop techniques to destroy militarily more powerful nations. The United States is the primary focus of that effort. One way is to attack our infrastructure, starting with our computer systems. Making a super virus, or hacking into our systems to read our mail and discern our intentions. While the Chinese are moving towards a capitalist economy, they still have a centrally directed economy. They are still a Communist dictatorship. The mainstream media too often try and tell us that China is our "friend," they fawned over them at the Olympics, but they are still fierce competitors. The Chinese may be our friends, but the Communists are not; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Historian Steven Gillon's New Book Questions Details of JFK Assassination This new book, according to the article, is claiming that President Kennedy lived a few minutes less than his death certificate says he did. The media looks for any reason to cast doubt on the Warren Commission Report. In all these years there has been no significant information developed that puts the Warren Commission Report in error. The assassination of a President was done by a lone gunman, a Communist sympathizer and admirer of Fidel Castro. Many of the public for some reason cannot seem to get it into their heads that this one evil man performed a horrific deed on his own. The main stream media feeds this ignorance and erodes the confidence in the government. It is extremely difficult to maintain the secrecy of any important event for any length of time. Most people interested in aviation were aware of stealth techno0logy years before it became "public knowledge." Even the most carefully guarded secrets are seldom all that secret; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2009-11-10-sniper_N.htm John Allen Muhammad the so called DC Sniper was finally executed. It took courts seven years after his conviction to finally give justice to his victims and their families. This criminal murdered ten innocent people in sniper attacks. The courts have taken far too long to execute this cowardly criminal. The death penalty serves many purposes. One reason to kill murderers is to have the punishment serve as a deterrent to others who may want to commit a murder. Having years, even decades to live after conviction does not serve as a conviction. Another reason to execute murderers is so that they cannot kill again. People on death row sometimes murder other prisoners, guards, even visitors. Executing murderers means they will never kill another innocent person. Genesis 9:6 "Whoever takes a man's life, by man will his life be taken; because God made man in his image;" that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

If an armed assailant enters your location and begins to murder and would people indiscriminately then you must take immediate action. The first choice is that you go for your own firearm and defend yourself, your loved ones and other innocent persons with your own legally carried firearm. Since that is not an option for most people you need to look at other options. An active shooter generally is trying to kill as many people in the shortest possible time and will usually anticipate that they will be killed also. You still have several options that can work if you are unable to defend yourself. Flee rapidly away from the shooter. Don't hesitate, but run as rapidly as you can away from the shooter. Move out of the line of sight of the shooter. Turn around corners, or go inside other venues. Don't stop to aid others, simply get away. If you make it to a safe place, call the police and they can aid those you had to leave behind. You can also hide or barricade yourself inside a room. This option can take longer and may not be effective. Locking yourself inside a room may work if the shooter is able to move away towards other potential victims that are easier to get to. Hiding in places like closets or cabinets may also work to give you some protection. An active shooter is difficult to defend against if you are unarmed; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.dodbuzz.com/2009/11/04/china-declares-space-war-inevitable/ The Communist Chinese are declaring a space war inevitable. They are working on space weapons and even testing them. The main stream media like to forget that the PRC is still Communist. They like to forget that they have expanded by conquering their neighbors, Tibet, Mongolia, and they have attacked other of their neighbors. The nations of Russia, Vietnam, and India all have to maintain large numbers of troops at their borders with China to protect against attacks from the Communist Chinese. Our enemies seldom make a secret of their desire to attack us and destroy our interests. The North Koreans work on nuclear weapons while we try and talk to them about disarmament. The Iranians work on nuclear weapons while we try and talk to them about disarmament. The Communist Chinese work on space based weapons while we talk about space disarmament. Rather than simply chat with our enemies, we need to take positive action. Rather than wait for another Battleship Maine, Lusitania, Pearl Harbor, or 9/11 we need to prepare for war. The best way to insure the peace, is to be ready for war, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

House Narrowly Passes Historic Health Care Bill -- Politics Daily The House of Representatives have passed ObamaCare. It will increase taxes, increase Federal funding for abortion and provide health care for illegal aliens, and turn over personal decisions to government employees. Our only hope now is that the Senate will be able to defeat the bill. This is a bad day for freedom in America. The Democrats will have to posture to pretend that they will not use Federal funds for abortions, but in the end it won't matter what the bill says. If it is not in the bill, then they will find some liberal activist judge to put abortion funding in the bill after it is law. The same is true for paying for medical care for illegal aliens. If it does not end up in the final bill, the same kind of liberal activist judge will determine that it should have been in there and we will end up paying for the health care of illegal aliens. The bill will tax health care providers to help pay for the costs. We are giving everyone health care and taxing the people who provide health care to pay for the costs of giving everyone health care. How does that make sense? That will only insure greater scarcity as health care becomes less profitable. Why provide a service if you are taxed so high you can't make a profit on that service? This bill will lead to a health care disaster in a few years; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

A recent bill to place "reasonable" restrictions on the private ownership of firearms has been introduced in the Congress. Perhaps we should look to these "reasonable" restrictions and see how they would apply to other Constitutionally protected activities. Based on this bill perhaps we should implement the following: A Federal tax on every abortion of $25. A two day waiting period on every abortion. A background check and check of medical records to insure you are mentally able to make the decision to have an abortion. A national registry of all those who have had an abortion. A written test on reproductive health before getting an abortion. All sound like reasonable limits on the constitutional right to an abortion. Liberals say these are all reasonable when applied to firearms. Why are they unreasonable when applied to an abortion? There is a whole amendment to the Bill or Rights that speaks to firearms ownership. There is no such amendment for abortion, it was a "right" simply made up by the courts; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

"Allahu Akbar!" is what reports say the killer shouted as he killed and wounded soldiers of the US Army in Fort Hood, Texas. Now the main stream media are running around trying to tell us that this attack has nothing to do with terrorism. Some news stories about this incident don't even mention that the murderer was a Muslim. The politically correct media are also trying to claim that the attack was a result of some kind of post traumatic stress disorder. Many people of many religions get PTSD but it seems only Muslims feel the need to act out with a mass murder of soldiers. The West is doing itself a disservice by pretending that Muslims are not our enemies. They are looking away from the obvious motive for this criminal. This is clearly an attack on the US military by the Islamist extremists who the US is at war with in Iraq and Afghanistan; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=114996 A cargo ship with 300 tons of weapons and ammunition has been seized by Israel. The ship had left Iran and was on it's way to Syria. The weapons were slated to go to Hezbollah from there. Three hundred tons of weapons and ammunition is a lot of firepower. Naturally, the Iranians and the Syrians both claim there were few if any weapons and that the weapons were not going to Hezbollah. The Syrians are suspected to taking weapons of mass destruction from Iraq just before the war that toppled Saddam. The Iranians are always talking about wiping Israel off the map and are suspected of trying to make nuclear weapons. The Muslim terrorists of the Middle East are constantly trying to destabilize Israel and our other allies. They want to bring about the rule of Islam all over the world. They want to continue to kill Westerners and remove all non-Muslims from the region. This ship was just one more example of that; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Traditional marriage now 31-0 (OneNewsNow.com) In the United States of America traditional marriage is defined as being between a man and a woman who have reached the age of majority and are not related. There is not a single one of the fifty states that have redefined traditional marriage as a result of a vote of the people. In thirty-one states the people have voted on a possible redefinition of marriage and in no case have the people voted to change marriage. The main stream media give the impression that there is this huge groundswell of people longing to change traditional marriage. Yet every single time it has been put to the people for a vote, it has gone down to defeat. No where in the history of Western civilization has society endorsed the idea of same sex marriage. Marriage is the basis of civilization and society. It is a sacred thing that we all must keep pure and undefiled; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.politicsdaily.com/2009/11/03/republican-wins-in-virginia-new-jersey-build-momentum-for-2010/... Republicans have won several mid-term elections. At least a couple were expected to go to the Democrats, but did not work out that way. In the last election cycle, many people were voting against President Bush, rather than for President Obama. Due to the constant media complaining and their ignoring every good thing that happened in his administration, many people were misinformed and unhappy with the direction of the country. Now after months of President Obama and nearly everything getting worse, rather than better, people are upset. The government has failed to stop the rising unemployment rate, they have vastly increased the deficit and the War Against Islamic Terrorists continues, unabated. Despite Cash for Clunkers, and other gimmicks to try and stimulate the economy, the economic news has not been good. People often vote their pocketbooks. When the economic outlook is bad, they want the incumbents out. Let's hope that the trend continues in 2010 Congressional elections; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The US government owns over 50% of General Motors. Rather than allow General Motors to be broken up and sold off into it's component parts, the Obama Administration purchased over half of this private company. It is not the job of the Federal Government to operate automobile companies. The purchase of General Motors should not have happened. The company has made many bad decisions over the past few decades. The direct result of these poor decisions was that the company was losing money. They were paying employees and management too much money, too many benefits compared to the profits they were making. Rather than cut pay and benefits, rather than sell off divisions, they went to the government for help. The Obama Administration has spent billions of taxpayer dollars to try and save General Motors. People who make much less money than the average GM worker or management have had to pay taxes so that these high paying union jobs would be saved. Unions that supported the Democrats and President Obama, coincidence? I think not, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Muslim nations of the world are trying to band together with the secular humanists to silence those who would speak out against Islamic extremists or political correctness. These Muslims are trying to get the United Nations to endorse blasphemy laws that many of these nations have in place for domestic thought control.
Islamic nations don't permit Christians to speak the Word of Christ. They have laws that prevent Christian missionaries from going there and speaking the truth of Christianity. Islamic nations know that Islam is not able to stand up to Christianity and so they prevent it from being preached there.
The politically correct secular humanists also don't like the preaching of the Christian word. So they too are interested in laws the prevent the teaching of the Christian word. Now they are working with religious Muslims to prevent blasphemy against Islam. Free speech should apply to all religions, not just Muslims; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Obama to Lift HIV/AIDS Travel Ban There are not enough people in the United States with HIV or AIDS so President Obama has taken steps to eliminate this shortage. The travel ban against people with HIV/AIDS has been lifted so that people with these conditions can come here. Medicine should be practiced by medical professionals. People with infectious, deadly diseases should not be allowed to enter the United States. HIV/AIDS is treated as a political opinion, not as a deadly infectious disease. Every rational, typical medical procedure is tossed aside and rather than making medical decisions based on medical information, they are made on a political basis. People with tuberculous will not be allowed entry into the United States because they don't have a loud political group urging that they be permitted to enter the United States. The United States has millions of people without health insurance, and now we are going to further stress the system by bringing in more people with severe diseases that are difficult and expensive to treat. Don't let sick people into the country, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

John Satawa Files Lawsuit to Return Nativity Scene to Public Land A community has had a Nativity scene on a roadway center divider for decades, but now has denied permission to return it for this Christmas. Since 85% of the people self identify as Christians, why can't those Christian taxpayers have a Nativity scene on the roadway they pay for with their taxes? It is the classic case of the tail wagging the dog. A small, vocal minority is "offended" because they see a Nativity scene. Then they go around and get it removed from the public square. Our Constitution does not have a separation of church and state phrase in it. There is no legal requirement to keep the Church out of the public square. The Federal government is not permitted to have religious tests for holding office or voting. There is not supposed to be a state sponsored church. That does not mean that churches and religion have less protection than other groups that might use public facilities; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Weird Car News A new study shows that people with a certain gene can't drive well. Research often says that certain genes create one problem or another. Then people try and use this information to their advantage. I have a gene that makes me drive badly so when I crash my car, it's not my fault. Yet, try and interject some added responsibility, and these same people run from it. If you have a certain gene that makes you drive badly, then you have to pay higher car insurance rates. No, that's unfair. Individual responsibility requires that we each take responsibility for our own actions. If you have a gene that causes a problem or creates a predisposition for alcoholism or other problem, then you have a special burden to make sure that you act responsibly. We each have our own cross to bear, but it does not provide us an excuse to act badly; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

I was listening to the radio news this morning and the announcer said, California could lose as many as five congressional seats if the next census only counts "legal citizens." So the main stream media is trying to scare us that California could lose representation and trying to muddy the citizenship waters at the same time. Tens of thousands have fled the high crime, high taxes, extreme gun control, and government meddling of the California state government. Now that a census is coming up next year there is a likelihood that it will show fewer people living in California than the last time they did a census. Those people who left for other states with a better job climate and lower taxes and fewer gun controls deserve representation. They don't deserve to be denied representation by some trickery to count illegal aliens as a way to boost California's population numbers. The announcer called them "legal citizens." There is only one kind of citizens, and that is legal ones. Illegals are not citizens and the announcer should not have implied that they are citizens, nor should he be pushing the illegal alien agenda of trying to manipulate the census figures by counting them so they can be represented in Congress. Congress is there to represent "legal citizens," not "illegal aliens;" that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.freedomslighthouse.com/2009/10/obama-manufacturing-czar-says-free.html Ron Bloom, another one of President Obama's many Czars, has come out against free markets. I wonder what sort of qualifications you have to have to be a Czar of manufacturing? It would seem to me if you are in charge of free markets, you should be in favor of them. Unless perhaps they think of themselves of being like the drug Czar, you are trying to stop drugs, so the Manufacturing Czar is trying to stop manufacturing. I support fair and free trades and fair and free markets. If another country allows our products in, then we should allow their products in the same way. If another country does not allow our products in, then we need to consider the same types of restrictions and taxes as they place on our products. That seems to be fair trade to me. Most of the time when people are free to buy what they want, they will make the right decision. Governments are forcing people to buy compact fluorescent light bulbs. If these bulbs are the right decision then over time people will migrate towards them once they understand the advantages. Right now, there are many disadvantages to them and so markets are saying don't buy them. So the government forces us to use them anyway. That does not sound either fair or free; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church says: "Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered." They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved." There are tens of millions of Roman Catholics in the United States and tens of millions of other Catholics and other people in the US who believe essentially this teaching of the church. Why is it that our President sees fit to continuously promote those who actively participate in activities that are "intrinsically disordered?" The maintenance of a moral society is certainly an important goal for government officials. I have no problem with people who are homosexual. My concern is when they attempt to foist their intrinsically disordered lifestyle on the rest of us as if it were normal. It is against the normal order of things and should not be taught in public schools, or given special legal protections; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Traditional Anglican Communion is in contact with the Roman Catholic Church to determine methods where the two can be in communion with one another. One of the issues that have forced this issue is the ordination of woman as priests. The TAC does not endorse the ordination of women to the priesthood. We look to the words and actions of Jesus as recorded in the Bible to guide us along with Church tradition. He selected 12 men and when Judas was replaced, he picked another man. Despite having many good women to pick from, he picked only men. Actions speak louder than words as they say. For 2,000 years all Catholic Christians have only ordained men until now, why are we smarter or more pious then they were? Most of those who want to ordain women speak only of equality and fairness, and ignore Christian tradition and the Bible. Not everything in life is about fairness and equality. We can't all be professional football players, mothers, Marines, or priests; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Accountability for Business Choices in Iran Act has been proposed in the Congress. The idea is to get those companies that do business with Iranian to disclose that information. Then those companies will have to decide if they would rather do business with a rogue nation that hides nuclear facilities from the UN and is trying to build nuclear weapons to destroy Israel and other Western nations or with the USA. It is one more way to try and put pressure on Iran to stop their nuclear program. Recently they agreed to have their nuclear material sent to Russia and now they are studying the proposal. As usual, they continue to build towards nuclear weapons and the West continues to talk. Just like with North Korea, Iran will someday test a nuclear weapon and the West will act surprised and say it is too late to act, now that they have nuclear weapons. The West too often acts against it's own self interest. There is no reason for North Korea or Iran to have nuclear weapons. The US and the West have no desire to attack either of those nations. I would like nothing more than to forget about both of those nations and let them go about their lawful business in peace. It is when they threaten the West with destruction that they become a problem; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.westernjournalism.com/?page_id=3255 President Obama has promised more openness and allowing people to know what his administration is doing. In the meantime, his is refusing to release just about any records about his life including his birth certificate. How interesting that his actions don't match his words. But then I suspect that he does not want us to know many of the facts about his life and about his agenda. When I was in the Army I had to fill out a form that told every school I ever went to and every place I ever lived. I had to write down all my relatives and where they lived. I had to tell them about every school that I ever went to also. They wanted copies of all my documents, birth certificate, marriage certificate, school records. All this just to be commissioned as a lowly second lieutenant in the US Army Reserve. They did background checks, sent agents out to my former teachers, friends, relatives, employers and asked about me and my actions during the time I knew them. Seems a lot when the Commander in Chief won't even provide a long form birth certificate; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/financetopics/financialcrisis/5516536/US-cities-may-have-to-be-bulldozed-in-order-to-survive.html The Obama administration has reached a very sad conclusion. They are saying that some cities are so far gone that large parts of them will have to be bulldozed over and the land returned to nature. They are saying that these cities will never recover their former economic vitality and that we should simply bring in the heavy machines and bulldoze the crumbling remains of these cities. I certainly can understand the necessity of knocking down and recycling old, abandoned buildings that are falling apart and are no longer usable or safe. I can understand cities that need to cut service levels in sparsely populated parts of town were few people still reside. I cannot understand why the Federal government must impose it's will on local communities. If anything they should provide Federal tax cuts to stimulate the local economy and even some Federal monies to fight crime or other common urban problems. What I have great problems with is the tone of the Obama administration. They have given up on American cities. They have given up on the American people. They have given up on our citizens living a better life than their parents. They have awakened from the American Dream, and don't want to try and live it any longer; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Vatican seeks to lure disaffected Anglicans Traditional Anglicans have been in dialogue with the Vatican for many years. Several years ago the bishops of the Traditional Anglican Communion set a letter to the Vatican as part of that dialog. They got an answer to that letter indicating that the Roman Catholic Church is interested in continued dialog and wants to continue to work together towards Christian unity. There are perhaps a half a million or more Anglicans who are interested in closer relationships with Rome. In the last few decades, the Anglican church and in the USA the Episcopal church have moved away from the traditional Christian values of ordaining only men as priests and only men who are not leading an active homosexual lifestyle. As the liberals have created an environment that is no longer in keeping with historical Christianity, those who keep to traditional values have been forced to act. All over the world, traditional Christians have been looking for options. Some have found bishops from other nations and other continents to continue their worships. Some have broken away and formed splinter groups. Now their may be an even better option; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

YouTube dogs: congressman wants tax breaks for pet owners Dogs cost their owners as much as thousands of dollars a year. Dog owners who fail to take care of their animals can be fined, even go to jail. Now a congressman wants to give tax breaks to dog owners. There is a concern that some dogs are being turned loose or just turned in to shelters because their owners cannot take care of them in this time of economic downturn. If you have a dog it is your responsibility to take care of him for the rest of his natural life. Turning the dog in to a shelter, having him put down, or turning him loose to run wild are not proper options, just because you have had your income go down. There are many things that people can do to cut expenses or take care of the dog. Buy cheaper dog foods, cut out your cable television, or get another job. Dogs are a responsibility. If you have one, you need to care for it. If you cannot care for it, then you need to find someone who can take care of it. Sell it, give it away to a good family, get help from animal rescue people who can help you care for it. Don't ask the taxpayers for a tax break; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

In Southern California there are many possible dangers. Earthquakes are the most obvious, but I also live in a flood plain, and we have had urban unrest here several times in my lifetime. As a result, I have been planning my survival plan. I figure the worst case scenario is a major earthquake, followed by a tsunami, and then urban unrest for a time afterwards. My survival plan calls for being able to support my family of my wife and myself for ninety days after the incident. With a major earthquake the aqueducts that carry much of our water to us here in Southern California could be destroyed and out of commission for an extended period of time. That means storing enough water for two people for that long. We get water delivered to our home and we are building up a backlog of about 20 of them for our emergency water supply. Every year I try and harden the target of my home to intruders. I add or upgrade locks. I have replaced single pane windows with more difficult to break double pane windows. I have added stronger doors and even had one window replaced with glass blocks. I have been training my wife and daughter how to respond to the incidents and what to do to stay safe. Personal responsibility is part of the Hysterical Right Wing.

AOL Autos - Research, Find and Buy New Cars and Used Cars The research on cars has shown that vehicles are significantly safer than they they were 50 years ago. There were almost as many people killed in traffic collisions then as now, but with over twice the population and driving so much more now the deaths per mile travelled are much reduced. There is still much to do in several areas. Cars still need to be safer. They need to have better crash cages so that people cannot be crushed inside the car under almost any circumstances. A car crashing into a tree or a big truck running into a car should not destroy the passenger compartment. We need to control illegal immigration better. A large number of people who come to this country illegally still drive here and they typically drive very badly. If our local police could enforce immigration laws then they could arrest illegal alien drivers who have no drivers license, and then deport them. Our laws against driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs need to be even more strict. Drunk drivers still kill a disproportionate number of people on the roads and if someone is still drinking and driving then they need to go to jail for a while. They also should have their driver licence revoked for years, without exceptions for work or school or reasons; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

These Are Not Negotiable This links speaks of a list of rights that the writer feels are not negotiable. That at sometime the infringement of our liberties will become so great that they can no longer be tolerated by citizens of the republic. He raises a series of interesting questions, primarily, what would it take for you as a citizen of this nation to feel that you are no longer a part of this state? The government has taken an every increasing slice of our incomes as taxes nearly every year of my life. How much to they have to take before it is too much? How much to they have to take before you just don't have enough left to pay your bills? In California we have had the year of the largest tax increases ever, and now we pay the highest state taxes in the nation. Despite this huge tax burden, our state tells us they don't have enough money to pay for those convicted criminals who are already in our prisons. They tell us they don't have enough money to pay our states bills. There are even some in state government who says we are still not taxed enough! Our tax burden is too great. People move out of state because the taxes are so high and the business climate is so poor, and our state government does nothing to solve the problem; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The stock market is up to around 10,000 points and that's good news. President Obamas' stimulus package has returned thousands of points to the market. There is still much to do. People are still unemployed, nearly 10% nationwide unemployment, and 12% here in California. The Congress is debating the health care bills and many of them include increased taxes. Any increase in taxes will only drive the markets back down and continue to hammer unemployment rates. Credit is tight, people don't have much disposable income and so adding more taxes will be counter-productive. We used to cut taxes to stimulate spending by the citizens and increase the money in private hands. Now the government spends more money they don't have; restricting credit, and making things harder on the people; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
President Obama is trying to bribe the old people by giving them a cash gift of $250 each. It is being thinly disguised as a special bonus for Social Security recipients. President Obama knows that older Americans are not supporting his health care package. This is simply a way for President Obama to try and bribe older people to support his health care package. I understand that people paid into Social Security trust fund. The Social Security system is broke. There is no trust fund. The Federal government collects the money, places it into the "trust fund" and then borrows it from the fund and spends it for today's operating expenses. While the Federal government claims they are going to pay the money back, there are no funds pay it back. The money has been spent. The money is spent as soon as it is collected to pay out funds to people on Social Security now and the rest is "borrowed" and spent to run the Federal government. People paid into Social Security and we should pay them the money they expected to get. They did not pay into Social Security to get special bonuses. No one paid a little extra one month, expecting a bonus payment at some point. There should not be any bonus paid to Social Security recipients, they did not pay for it, we don't have the money, and it sets a bad example; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
