President Obama Likes Symbols

http://news.yahoo.com/s/realclearpolitics/20090216/cm_rcp/obama_is_big_on_symbolism It is easier to bring symbolism rather than actual results. Typical of so many liberals, it is all about how you feel. How you make others feel is more important than the actual results that you bring to them. Symbolism rather than substance is so much easier and it is immediate. You don't have to wait for results, you get instant results because all you need to do is make people feel better, not make them better. Liberals so often talk about feelings, not results. It is only important that you tried, if you did your best than that is all we can ask. Of course, I don't want that surgeon working on my mother. I don't want that airline pilot flying my wife. I don't want that tax man giving me advice on my return. What matters, is results. Thomas Edison invented the first practical incandescent light bulb. That's why we remember him. Not the fact that he tried, thousands of times to make it work. In the real world your feelings, your intentions, how much you care don't matter much. What matters is the results on the ground. We can spend millions in aid for Africans in distress, and we will feel better. But if the aid only goes for projects that are never finished, for projects that only line the pockets of corrupt officials, then the project was a failure. Liberals are in charge of Washington right now, but they won't be in four years if they don't get results on the ground; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Dead Teen

Teen Girl Found Dead in Army Barracks "The Army is investigating what the girls were doing in the barracks and whether drugs or alcohol were involved, he said. The presence of the two civilian girls "in the barracks at 3:30 a.m. is likely a violation of any of the units' barracks visitation policies," he said." What! Why do soldiers have two girls in the barracks at 3:30 a.m.? When did that even become possible? And why are two civilians of any kind in the barracks at that time of night? We are at war, during wartime the base should be a secure facility, not one where two girls can be smuggled into barracks buildings. In this unfortunate incident these two girls were probably murdered. What happens in the next incident when the two girls are suicide bombers and they explode the barracks and kill a couple hundred soldiers? Why do individual barracks have their own visitation policies? Why aren't they Army wide? The Army should determine who is on Army bases and when and what they are doing. This is a sign of poor discipline, in my opinion. I know if troops were staying off base they can have any visitors they want at any time they want, but barracks are different. Apartment buildings are generally not terrorist targets, but barracks certainly are; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Apostrophes'

British City Gets Rid of Apostrophes A British City has gotten rid of apostrophes in all of its street signs and other official documents. The purpose of signage and documents is to communicate information. The apostrophe does little to communicate information but it often is misused. Few people seem to remember how to use them so they are often misused. Communication is getting more ubiquitous as people have telephones, computers, text messaging, and the type of writing that gets used now is so brief, so shortened the apostrophe is surly on it's way out. That's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Iraqi Elections

Iraq: Good News Is No News By Charles Krauthammer Iraq held national elections recently. You probably heard nothing about it in the news. The news did not bother to cover the story because no one was hurt. No car bomb explosions, no suicide bombers, no sniper attacks, no blood, no violence. The people voted in large numbers and there were no major boycotts of the election. None of the Radical Islamist political parties did well in the election. The United States of America under the leadership of President George W. Bush and with the assistance of over thirty allied nations has won the war in Iraq. The main stream media has refused to cover the story because it would make them look bad. For all these years they have been quoting radical Muslims, weak willed Americans that Iraq was a quagmire that we would never get out from. I think America will need to keep troops in Iraq for the next fifty years, just like we have done in Germany, and Korea. The Iraqis have dangerous enemies all around them, Syria, and Iran being the two most threatening. With American troops there backing up the Iraqi military they would not dare attack Iraq. The internal threat has been reduced and every day the Iraqi police continue to gain training and experience. We won the war, now I hope that President Obama does not lose the peace; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Two Californias Are Better Than One

Two California States? Could be another East and West Germany - CA Political News by Stephen Frank There is a move to split California into two separate states, one mostly agricultural and the other mostly urban. San Francisco and the coastal region down to Los Angeles would be one state and the remainder of the state would become a second state. I think this is a great idea. California is essentially bankrupt. The liberal parts of the state want to spend money on every project they can think of doing. They want every liberal social idea to be put into effect immediately. The conservative part of the state does not want government to do much and they don't want to spend one penny more on it than they have to spend. They want everyone to own guns and support traditional marriage. California is such a huge state that cutting it into two parts and making it two state will still have two giant states left over. West Virginia spun off from Virginia so there is precedent for a state splitting into two. I was born and raised here, but I would be thrilled to cut the state in half so I can live in the Hysterical Right Wing one.

Children With Babies

Boy Becomes Father at 13 - "I Thought It Would Be Good to Have a Baby" - ParentDish The media falls all over itself to tell us how wonderful it is to have a thirteen year old boy become a father. The interviews with the boy shows how foolish and naive he really is and how unable his is to take care of a child. Children having children is not news and I don't understand why the media is all over this particular incident. All this does is make it more acceptable and more attractive for kids to have kids. Children having children. Parents acting as if they have no responsibility towards their children. Others trying to justify the foolish acts of children and the inaction of foolish parents. Traditional conservative Christian values reduce these types of problems. While those with traditional conservative Christian values still do things the should not, the rate of illegitimate births in the 1950's when most Americans held traditional Christian values was much less than it is today. I am glad the boy wants to be a father to his child, at least that is a start. One of the few things worse than children having children is children having abortions, children killing children; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

I Swam The Atlantic

Woman Who 'Swam Atlantic' Didn't Really The main stream media just takes any story and runs with it no matter how implausible. After the story hit the news someone figured out she would have had to swam 250 miles per day! That's over ten miles an hour. That's pretty fast, some cruise ships don't go that fast. This is typical of the main stream media these days to just print anything no matter how apparently stupid the claim. The idea of checking on a story before printing it has fallen by the wayside. Days or weeks later the truth comes out and the new story gets little or no attention, the damage is always done by then. The lack of common sense among reporters is pretty discouraging. For someone to swim 250 miles a day they would have to swim over ten miles per hour, every hour of the day. Clearly impossible. Simple common sense would tell them that, no wonder the media leans to the left; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Go Zones

Bishop warns of no-go zones for non-Muslims - Telegraph An English Bishop says that some parts of the UK are now no-go zones for non-Muslims. The reporter then goes to some Muslims and asks them about it and they deny that such no-go areas exist. So I suppose that ends the matter. No point in dressing up like a Christian and visiting those areas to observe what happens. No point in asking the Bishop to go to those areas and observing what happens to him when he goes there. Just ask a couple Muslims if that is true and take their word for it. Back in the day we used to have journalists who were not afraid to investigate what was happening in the worst parts of town and the worst parts of the world. Now it seems that journalists are afraid to do more than exchange a few emails make a couple phone calls and call it done. What happened to the fearless crime reporters who would go up against machine politicians and gangsters and write the truth? They seem to have gone away. The English Bishop has made an important allegation against the Muslims in his country. If it is true then it is wrong on so many levels. Citizens of a nation should be free to move about the country without fear that some citizens will attack them because of religious persecution. It would only have taken a simple walk down the street to verify the Bishops story. The reporter should have taken that Bishop straight to the heart of the worst area and walked down the street with him. They should have had an undercover film crew hidden down the block, with the reporter wearing a hidden microphone, and not told anyone, including the Bishop that they were going to film any incidents. Then show what happens, either way; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Death To Christians

IslamOnline - Contemporary Section An important clarification, in case you become a Muslim and then change your mind about it later, modern Islam requires that Muslims who convert to Christianity must be executed. How nice. If Christians convert to Islam, Christians say they will probably go to hell once they die of old age. If Muslims convert to Christianity, Muslims say they will go to hell immediately when they are murdered. If you don't think that there is a conflict of cultures, if you don't believe that Islam is not compatible with Western Civilization, then you need to read the articles on Islam Online. These are contemporary articles, written today by Islamic teachers to teach today's Muslims. This murder of people who convert from the Religion of Peace to follow the Prince of Peace is going on today in the world. Islam condones these killings and in fact, requires them. Radical Islam is not compatible with Western Civilization. It never will be because they don't believe in the free market of ideas, they don't believe in the rights of women, they don't believe in the rights of people who don't believe they way they believe. Just look at how the Taliban blew up ancient Buddha statues in Afghanistan. They could not stand the competition of another religion in their country and so they destroyed it. Not the type of freedom that makes Western Civilization so historically powerful; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Inmates Released From Prison

Judges order Calif. inmates released - Life- msnbc.com At a time when California cities are laying off police officers because they can't afford them, judges have ordered inmates to be released from prison due to overcrowding. Why are we going to risk public safety by releasing these inmates? These judges care more about criminals than they do about the general public. They would rather see criminals on the street, doing crime, victimizing innocent people, shooting cops than have them sleeping in bunk beds in rooms that are overcrowded. It is too bad that the prisons are overcrowded. It is too bad that they don't have the space that they should have. The solution is not to endanger the lives of the public by releasing them is not proper. Cut the pay of the guards, or cut the pay of the legislature, require the legislature to spend more on prison construction, make them hire private prisons to house these people. Move these criminals to lower security prisons, that are cheaper to run. Perhaps the judges could move money from other parts of the budget to prison construction? What is the standard for prisoners? How come Russia and China and Iran seem to have overcrowded prisons but don't release prisoners as a result? Murderers, rapists, robbers, really don't engender much sympathy from me. Perhaps if the prisons were less pleasant, criminals would try and avoid going back there? When people die or get raped or robbed by one of these early release prisoners, can we sue the judges? Will they apologize? If the people and the legislature and the governor are okay with the prison conditions, then perhaps the judges should leave the problem alone; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

North Korea

North Korea, trying to jolt Obama, warns South - Yahoo! News North Korea says that they are no longer going to deal with South Korea because it has not gotten them anything. They still want to conquer South Korea and they know the US is their greatest obstacle to do that. North Korea has counterfeited US currency in an effort to destabilize our economy and to allow them to buy things that are embargoed against them. They use intimidation, assassination, and criminal acts as part of their normal way of doing business. There is a treaty that they want the United States to sign that will eliminate land mines. Liberals point to the places in the world where land mines have been sown usually by irregular forces and say how terrible the toll is that land mines take every year on children. Irregular force won't be bound by the treaty on land mines. Irregular forces will still sow them anyplace they want to and without properly marking them. Regular armies plant land mines and map the minefield so the mines can be removed later. New technologies for land mines can cause them to be deactivated after a set period of time so that when they are not longer needed they can become harmless. North Korea also wants a nuclear free Korea and a Korea free of foreign troops. Of course they do, they are afraid of the nuclear weapons and American and UN troops will continue to prevent them from conquering South Korea. Now the Obama Administration is offering them many carrots to appease them. I though we learned the value of appeasement at the start of the Second World War; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Republican Platform

Republicans get elected when they act like Republicans. When we put forward candidates like John McCain who got famous by fighting against Republican policies and candidates, we lose. We lose because other Republicans don't trust those candidates to act like Republicans on Republican issues. When we don't trust a candidate, we don't give them money and we don't work for him and sometimes don't even bother to vote for him. Republicans need to start now to find a presidential candidate for 2012 and a mighty host of congressional candidates for 2010 who will work for the following: Strengthen National Defense Energy Independence Secure the Borders Stop the Earmarks Stop the Corruption English as the National Language Flat Tax Reduce Size of Government Healthcare Reform Traditional Marriage Defend Life Reform Lawsuit Abuse Defend Gun Rights Term Limits Republicans don't just need to make sure nothing else bad happens, they need to roll back legislation. They need to repeal bad laws. They need to have the text of the new laws printed up and distributed during the campaign for us to check out before the election. The RINO needs to be extinct; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

High School Pole Dancing

Pole Dancing Classes for High Schoolers? - ParentDish A high school asks a pole dancer to come and demonstrate her dancing as part of a fitness program. Eventually the parents discover what happened and complain and naturally the government officials who run the school deny it happened, then try and remove the evidence from Youtube. Perhaps they should have had fan dancers, snake dancers and belly dancers too. I am sure the 14 year old boys who were there watching would have been equally educated by their fitness routines as well. Parents should be able to send their kids to school safe in the knowledge that they will not be taught behaviors that are outside the mainstream. Parents have a right to control what their children see and hear and it is not up to the school to teach children about things that even most adults don't want to be involved in. This is typical behavior for governmental agencies. They do something they know to be wrong, then they deny that it happened. Once there is proof that the bad thing happened they try and suppress the truth. Finally when the truth leaks out they try and use some flimsy excuse as to why what they did was not wrong, by lying about what actually happened. While I am sure pole dancing requires physical strength and stamina and skill, it is not done for fitness; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Anti Jihad

Defying Islamic Supremacism - We Are All Geert Wilders Now - Anti-Jihad League of America While Muslims saw people's heads off with a rusty steak knife for being Christian or Jewish, secular people in Europe call for the arrest of those who complain about it because they are hateful. Why is it that liberals in the West cry for free speech but they are quick to sue when they hear something they don't like? Why is it that liberals in the West think that if we are just nice to our enemies they will suddenly stop being our enemies? And being nice to them includes not actually mentioning just how terrible they are! Radical Islam is not compatible with Western Democracy. They want Sharia Law for the entire world. That is part of their basic philosophy. Radical Islam wants the entire world to be Islamic. Not just Islamic but radical and Islamic. They don't want freedom of speech. They don't want freedom of religion, or to allow others to be atheists. They want everyone to be Islamic. They will persecute everyone that is not a part of their religion; that itself is part of Radical Islam. Those in the West who keep calling for political correctness are restricting our freedom, and preventing the free flow of ideas. Those in the West who want to blame the West for what Islam attacking us are wrong. The West is content with allowing Islamic nations to live their lives without interference from the West. Islam is not willing to allow the West to exist, it is that simple, they have forced Islam on others since the beginning of the religion and they continue to do so; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Islamic Persecution

Compass Direct News : IRAN - THREE CHRISTIANS ARRESTED FROM HOMES IN TEHRAN While church leaders in the UK run schools for Muslim children, religious leaders in Tehran arrest Christians. Islam has not always been the dominate religion in the Middle East. Remember your Bible stories in the New Testament. The Apostles left Jerusalem and went all over the area and spread the Word of God to the Gentiles. Those churches were destroyed a thousand years later when Islamic armies came in and took over. They destroyed church buildings and all Christians and Jews were treated as second class citizens. Christians were forbidden from proselytizing their religion and any Muslim who converted was murdered. Sharia law was imposed and Christians had to pay taxes and could not testify against Muslims. Contrary to what Hollywood and our textbooks want to tell you, being a Christian in Islamic nations is not easy, nor well tolerated. A film maker in the Netherlands makes a movie that accurately depicts the violence Islam does and he is prosecuted for hate crimes. Muslims march in protests, chanting for death to Christians and Jews and there is no condemnation. Iran arrests men who have converted from Islam to Christianity, and the world community ignores them. It will be difficult for us to win this war, when only the other side is fighting; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Foolish Church

Church vows to keep faith with its schools, despite Muslim majority - Times Online The Anglican Church continues to show how irrelevant they have become by running schools with a majority of Muslim students, even schools with only Muslim students. They then go on to state they won't use the schools as a way to proselytize the word of Christ, nor even require daily Christian prayer. The Christian Church has a duty to spread the word of Christ to the world. Jesus himself commanded his church to do this duty. One of the methods that Christians have used to spread the Gospel is by Christian education, often beginning at the primary level and extending to university. What is the point of doing this work if the school is not going to proclaim the word of Christ, or insist on Christian prayer? The Church of England has become more and more liberal over the last century. As they have become more liberal they have moved farther and farther away from the teachings of the Bible and closer to secularism. What a surprise that so few now attend church. What point is there in going to a church that does not actually believe anything? That's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Obama, Nonbelievers Friend

Obama's Nonbeliever Nod Unsettles Some The United States has always been a Christian nation. Don't let those revisionists fool you, it is Christian principles that founded this nation and it was founded by nearly all Christian men. The few Jews threw their lot in with the Christians because they knew the new American nation would protect the rights of minority religions because it is not Christian to force people to convert. Now President Obama has given the nod to those who don't believe in his inaugural address. How sad that our nation has declined to the point where he found it necessary to mention atheists in his address to the nation. Is he going to mention every special interest with ten percent of the population now? The Unites States needs to return to it's roots as a Christian nation. The founders were aware that Christianity was essential for the nation to survive. Christian charity was important to provide those services that were not proper for the government to provide by forcibly taking money away from people to give to other people. Christian values protect the rights of minority religions, opposed to atheists and Muslims who actively work against Christians, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Free Trade On Ideas

20 Muslim nations ban U.S. religious workers We need a new free trade agreement. A free trade in ideas. A free trade in religious belief. Christian missionaries must have the same rights to travel and try and sell their "product" as shoe salesmen, car companies, and arms dealers. If Muslim nations don't want our people to speak their minds, their beliefs, then they don't need our shoes, and cars, and guns. Just about the only thing the Muslim world exports is oil and Islam. They use money from the oil to buy manufactured goods and food from the Western nations. They use the converts to Islam to influence Western politics and prevent action by Christian nations to stop the spread of Islam. In the bad old days of the Cold War against the Evil Empire of the Soviet Union, we used to use ideas of freedom and democracy to eventually bring them down. We need to do that now. The greatest weapon we have is the Sword of the Lord, the word of Christ. We should negotiate with Muslim nations to allow freedom of speech, freedom of religion. The word of Christ should be taught there in a free market of ideas. Those who don't want our ideas, can do without our goods. At the very least, their peoples religious leaders should not be allowed to preach here; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Super Predator

FOXNews.com - 'Super-Predator' Humans Force Evolution in Animals - Science News Science & Technology Technology News Humans have forced animals to become better because of the evolutionary pressure of humans. Humans not only hunt them for sport or food, but also due to habitat degradation, where humans encroach the wild places and animals live in urban areas. Humans have become the super predator that prey on animals, and that's okay with me. Animals need to be managed like any other renewable resource. Study the habitat, determine how many animals there are and then harvest no more than the stock can maintain. If the stock is stressed and then breeds faster, than that is good. Animals are a renewable, sustainable resource. Wild animals are an important source of food, hides and other materials for humans all over the world. The proper management, including hunting of these wild things is important both to the animals and to the humans; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Sex on Mars

Lust in space: Nasa must iron out the kinks in space sex if man is to settle on Mars - Telegraph Another stupid waste of taxpayer dollars. We are years away from any attempt to put a man on Mars and decades away from any long term settlements. I suspect that if you have a few married couples on Mars for a few weeks, they will figure it out. The government spends far too much money on things that are so obvious to the average person. I fully support the manned exploration of space. But the same ideals that allowed America to develop the West and Alaska are the same ideas that we should apply in space. Private enterprise can take us into space. Private individuals and private companies should be encouraged to go into space and onto the Moon and Mars. The "common heritage of mankind" ideas should be jettisoned. If a private company goes to the Moon and mines a ton of gold, they should own it and use it as they see fit. This same collectivist thinking has stymied the development of deep sea mining. We need to drop it in our drive for the stars; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Void Same Sex "Marriages"

Will Prop. 8 be retroactive? Opinions differ (OneNewsNow.com) There are many who say that Proposition 8 will be retroactive and the same sex "marriages" that were performed are now null and void. With our State Attorney General Brown going against the will of the people and attacking rather than defending Proposition 8 that becomes even more difficult to determine what is really happening. It is the duty of the State Attorney General to defend the laws of the State of California. If he personally disagrees with those laws he should recuse himself or resign. Proposition 8 passed and many believe it should be retroactive. It is my hope that the law will be found not only constitutional, but also that the effect will be to void those same sex marriages that were performed before it was passed. Since California will not recognize same sex marriages that were performed in other states it does not seem logical that they should recognize those performed here either; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Bailout for ACORN

Newsmax.com - Obama’s Bill Hands ACORN $5.2 Billion Bailout Thank goodness the corruption that Chicago politics is known for continues under the Obama Administration. It is good to know there are still traditions you can count on in the new administration. President Obama has a bailout bill with $5.2 billion dollars of taxpayers money for ACORN. The organization that is accused of voter fraud will now be rewarded for their illegal activities by getting billions of dollars so they can continue to do those things that have gotten them in trouble in the past. The pornography industry has also asked for a bailout. I am sure with the zillons of dollars the government is spending they will be able to find some money for them too. After all, Wells Fargo Bank tried to refuse Federal money and was told they have to take it. It must be difficult trying to get rid of all that cash on hand. I remember back in the Army we had to use up all our budgeted money or we would not get the same level of funding for the next year. It never occurred to anyone that we were spending money just to spend money and that perhaps we did not actually need the same level of funding next year. It never seems to occur to the government that they don't need to spend money; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Child Safety

Pool Owners Ignore Child Safety Measures The media keeps telling us that the government is stalling on enforcement of child safety measures for pools. The media reports the statistics for entrapment as only 33 deaths between 1985 and 2004. Since this is such a tiny number of deaths in relation to the millions of dollars that must be spent to bring pools up to the new standard they have to then speculate that the numbers are "grossly underestimated." Cite the figures and then if the figures don't support your argument, just claim they are underestimated. Of course, they don't give any reasons to support that argument. CDC - Childhood Injury Report 66% of children were killed due to transportation related deaths. If people really want to help children, save the lives of children, then make cars safer. Make the parents put kid in the proper child seats. Buy more traffic lights. Do more traffic enforcement near schools. Have more crossing guards near schools. The millions of dollars they want to spend to upgrade swimming pools could be better spent and same many more lives if used to save kids in traffic accidents. Mandate the new pool drains on new pools and remodeled pools; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Pay Illegals

Newsmax.com - Stimulus Bill Would Give Payments to Illegal Aliens The Obama Stimulus Bill would give payments to illegal aliens. Rather than round them up and send them home so that there would be a job for an American worker, we are going to pay illegal workers a stimulus check. A stimulus check that is financed by the taxes of you and me and your kids and grand kids to someone who is breaking the law just by being here. This is a hugely bad idea. Illegal aliens need to be deported immediately. They don't need checks, they don't need health care, they don't need schools, they don't need American jobs; they need a one way ticket home. Republicans can regain political power. One thing they need to stand firm on is enforce the borders. Deport illegal aliens. Build the border fence. Don't give any benefits to illegal aliens of any kind. Raid those businesses that employ them. Send the Homeland Security agents to every Home Depot and arrest and deport every one. Protect the nation from the invasion; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Iran & Nuclear Missiles

Iran launches first domestically produced satellite http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/feb/03/iran-satellite-launch-omid This is the same Iran that is working on nuclear weapons. Launching satellites, working on nuclear weapons. That does not seem like a good idea for us. If they can launch a satellite they can launch a nuclear weapon. That was the same message the Soviet Union sent to the West back in the late 1950's with the launch of Sputnik. Back then it was front page news everywhere and the Western world responded rapidly. The US increased science education at all levels in schools. The US Space Program got a huge boost to bring us into competition and eventually ascendancy over the Soviet program. It was a call to action. Today Iran Launched a Satellite. That should be a headline everywhere. It is a challenge to the West. How will we respond? What will the Obama Administration do about it? What will the rest of the Western World do about it? How about Russia and China? Is a nuclear armed Islamist Fundamentalist state with nuclear weapons and satellites in their best interest? Both of those nations have had problems with Muslims inside their countries. How about India? They get hit by Muslims nearly every day. India is trying to operate an aircraft carrier and other power projection weapons. This could get interesting before it gets very, very bad; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Waterboarding

Holder Says Waterboarding Is Torture The man President Obama wants for Attorney General says waterbording is torture. This is typical of the problems presented by the Obama administration. First is the way this looks internationally. This is a high ranking official in the new administration saying that the US has been torturing people. Thanks for that huge propaganda victory OBL is saying from his cave in Pakistan somewhere. The second problem is that methods to extract information from people are not always nice. Waterboarding leaves no markes, and does no actual physical damage to people. Our Special Forces train by being waterboarded by each other. Does that mean we are torturing our own soldiers? Who does he think this is being done to? These are not a couple armed robbers who might steal a couple hundred dollars or who may kill a few people. These are unlawful combatants who use their own suicide as if it were a legitimate military techinque. Finally, what does he propose we do to these folks? Take away their cable television and hope they will tell us what we need to know? Where are these people going to go? Will we just release them and hope they are nice to use afterwards? Our enemies are not going to go away, and they are not just going to like us because we let them go; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Superbowl Ads

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/jan/29/nbc-rejects-pro-life-video-featuring-obama/ NBC naturally rejected a pro-life advertisement that shows a fetus that grows into President Obama. Liberals are all about free speech, open discussion, free flow of ideas, unless it might change someones opinion to a conservative viewpoint. Then we need to block the advertisement because it might be offensive. We have to have the Fairness Doctrine because someone is listening to Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity. The media never want to show a fetus as it is growing in the womb because it is a baby and it looks like a baby, even when very small. Mothers can't kill a baby. They can terminate a pregnancy, they can have a procedure to remove the tissue, but they can't kill a baby. Showing a fetus as a baby, putting a human face on abortion causes most women to rethink the morality of abortion on demand. Once an egg is fertilized, there is a unique human being created; all the rest is simply development of that person. Abortion is killing a human being, and the media does not like to show us that because it is generally run by liberals. Big businesses make big bucks performing abortions and they don't make money if you think abortion kills a person; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Inauguration

Media waxes poetic over Obama's inauguration (OneNewsNow.com) I am so over the media and President Obama. I can't count the number of times they have compared him to President Kennedy and Camelot. They even took a photo of one of President Obamas children crawling on the floor under the desk like baby John John. It was cute when he was two, it is just silly when she is ten. Just as it seemed that President Bush and his family could do nothing right, it seems President Obama and his family cannot do anything wrong. I am already tired of having to read about every article of clothing that Mrs. Obama puts on; of course when Sarah Palin wore expensive clothing it was terrible. When Mrs. Obama does the same thing, it is stylish and worthy of emulation. The media is filling our heads with fluff and ignoring all the dangers that face us every day. The deficit is out of control as President Obama continues to spend outrageous amounts of money on bailouts. The North Koreans are rattling sabres and yet the media just ignores it, because it might make President Obama look bad. We are in for a long administration with problems that continue to pile up with no solutions; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
