Down In Kosovo

My friend Dave is in the US Army in Kosovo. It is good to have direct knowledge of what his happening there. Our media never tells us anything. "Greetings everyone, I thought it was time to drop another note from Kosovo. A few days ago, a few of us were invited to the home of one of the women who works on the post for tea with her and her family. We accepted her invitation and rode out to her home in the village. We stopped along the way to try and find some pastries. She asked us why we were trying to bring food to her home when she had invited us. We told her it's a custom in the United States to bring something to someone else's home. When we arrived we met her husband and their son. The home they lived in was built by him and had electricity but no running water. They have to go get water from the well outside. They cooked and heated their home from a wood burning stove and only had power about 20 hours a day. We sat for a few hours drinking tea and getting to know each other. We had brought along a stuffed animal and a copy of the movie Madagascar for their son. He was so appreciative and played with the stuffed animal all night. It made me think of how kids in the United States complain because they don't have the latest video game but this little boy acted like we had just tossed him the keys to a brand new Corvette not a five dollar teddy bear. Later on she translated something her son had said. She said he asked her if it's his birthday. We laughed and asked her why. She said it's because the only time they have cake is when someone gets married or a birthday. The boy figured since we bought him gifts and a cake it must be his birthday!" Thanks to the US Army for doing a great job; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Free The Ant Slaves!

Ant slaves' murderous rebellions - Boing Boing Even ant slaves yearn to be free. Research on ant colonies has shown that ant slaves rebel against their ant masters by killing the young that they are serving. The desire to be free is present even in ants. The people of Cuba deserve to be free. The Obama Administration does that want to work towards that goal. Just as Fidel is on his last legs, they have eased travel restrictions and money transfers to Cuba. This will only make the Cuban Communists stronger by giving them the ability to move into the US and give them money to buy information, influence, technology and power. Cuba has been suffering under the yoke of Communist dictatorship long enough. Rather that ease restrictions we should be putting more pressure on them to reform. The death of Fidel and Raoul Castro an opportunity for true democratic reform could be at hand. The US should be working closely with Cuban expatriates and clandestinely with people in Cuba to move in and help topple the Communist government when the right time comes, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Land Mines Are Your Friend

Rats can be trained to sniff out landmines and explosives The Sun News Critics claim that land mines are very bad and need to be banned. Critics don't know what they are talking about, as usual. Those nations that are advanced and have professional military establishments seldom use landmines anymore. Those armies that use large numbers of land mines are the ones least likely to comply with any treaty against them. Professional armies note the location of every mine, when it was laid and once the mine is no longer useful, the mines are swept up. Militia armies, terrorists and badly trained Third World Armies don't do any of that, and they would ignore any treaties about land mines. Land mines serve useful purposes, even now. They deny the enemy the ability to move into an area unless they sweep up the mines. The most heavily mined part of the world is the border between North and South Korea. Who there would benefit from a removal of the land mines? Does anyone seriously think that South Korea is held back from attacking North Korea because of the presence of land mines? The Communists in North Korea know the mines are a serious obstacle to them and removing those mines would make their continuing efforts to kill and kidnap South Korean citizens, and destroy their property much easier. Doe anyone think that Al Queda will stop planting roadside bombs, land mines, just because some treaty says they are illegal? They already ignore all the other rules of warfare. The treaty to ban land mines is just another attempt by foolish, well meaning Liberals to undermine the military ability of the US and the West, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Pills of Death

Morning-After Pill OKed for 17-Year-Olds The judge has also said the perhaps all age restrictions should be removed from this pill. So I can see the day in the near future when government schools will provide 14 year old girls free abortion pills without prescription and without the permission of the parents. The abortion lobby wants every woman to get pregnant and have abortions. That is how they make money. The liberals don't like people and so they want as many abortions as possible. If that means letting children have them at home without the permission of their parents; that's just fine with them. The culture of death that our society has embraced is now moving onto high schools. Seventeen year old girls can buy a pack of abortion pills and take them every Monday after their wild weekends. This will only increase teen pregnancy rates, and teen abortions; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

UN vs NK

UN Security Council condemns North Korea launch North Korea must be in a panic now. Nine days after they launch their test ballistic missile the United Nations Security Council has placed a harshly worded memo in their file at UN headquarters. I bet after this North Korea will not fire another test ballistic missile until they are ready. Once again, the West shows grave weakness when confronted by an evil power bent on destruction and domination. North Korea considers itself at war with South Korea. All they dream about night and day is the conquest of their free and democratic neighbor to the south. They will try everything they can do destroy South Korea. The rest of the world is asking nicely and typing memos while North Korea is making nuclear weapons and the launch systems to use them against South Korea, Japan, the United States or anyone else that stands in the way of their conquest. North Korea is making these preparations in full view of the rest of the world and the word chooses not to see them and to interpret them in any way that makes North Korea seem innocent; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Everybody Must Get Stoned

Afghan Couple Executed An Afghan couple, one Shite and one Sunni ran off to get married. Due to their religious differences they were stoned to death by other practitioners of the "religion of peace." If two people want to get married in your town what difference does their religion make to you? What type of religion is Islam if you are murdered by a crowd of people throwing rocks if you marry someone of another sect? The couple were both Islamic, but the hatred of these two sects was so great for one another that rather than a honeymoon, this couple got murdered. People try to claim that if we can just negotiate with the terrorists we can come to a basis for an understanding. If two sects of Islam are so opposed to each other that they murder couples who marry, how can they reconcile with Hindus, Jews, Christians and atheists? Radical Islam cannot coexist with anyone but themselves; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Approve or Not?

Obama's Disapproval Rating Reaches New High - Political Machine - Politics Blog, Opinion and Analysis - AOL News The main stream media keep crowing about President Obama having high approval ratings. AOL published a poll saying that over 60% of the people though he was taking the nation in the right direction. I find it hard to imagine with taxes going up, the deficit going higher, the stock market still down, unemployment still high, pirates taking Americans hostage, and all the other problems still unresolved that Americans would be all that happy. Then we get to hear the rest of the story. President Obama has had all time high disapproval ratings. There is not a large percentage of the population that is taking a wait and see attitude towards his presidency. They are already moved into the unhappy with the way things are going camp. I want our nation to do well. I want low taxes, balanced budgets, strong dollar, full employment, freedom of the seas, and peaceful relations with other nations and and end to nuclear proliferation. If those things happen our president will be successful. I want our nation to do well, and if President Obama does well, then that's okay too. My concern is that he won't be able to do the things we both want done and he won't do the things that I think he should do; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Snipers Kill Pirates

Kidnapped US captain freed; snipers kill 3 pirates Instructions on shampoo say, "Lather, rinse, repeat." Lets use that same formula on the pirates. Find something that works and do it over and over again. The Obama Administration wanted the pirate hostage crisis to be ended peacefully and only wanted force to be used if the life of the American sea captain was in danger. News flash, anytime you are kidnapped, your life is in danger until you are freed from the kidnappers! As soon as the snipers were in place and had a shot they should have killed the pirates. Kidnapping is a vicious crime and the greatest leverage that kidnappers hold is the life of the hostage. Kidnappers don't take hostages and hold them for the purpose of holding them prisoner. They take hostages for the purpose of using them as objects for their personal gain. I suppose if the pirates were punching him in the face, that would not be good enough because those injuries would not be life threatening? How about if the pirates were sexually abusing the captain, that's not life threatening either, so I suppose that would not be enough for President Obama to authorize deadly force against the pirates? This is the worse kind of micromanagement. From halfway around the world the President is trying to be in charge of a dynamic life or death hostage taking? The rules of engagement should be if you are fired upon, sink the vessel that fires at you. If American are taken hostage, use every method at your disposal for their safe release; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Criminals With Guns

The media continue to glorify the murders at Columbine and Virgina Tech. Every year when the anniversary of these horrible murders comes around they show us images of the events and pictures of the criminals who perpetrated them. They constantly remind us of the names of these evil doers, continuing to spread their "fame." The names of these people should be stricken from our records. They should not become famous, we should not give them what they wanted to achieve, their names in lights, forever remembered by the nation. The media plays right into their hands, showing videos and websites made by these criminals and reading us their notes. The media should tell us how these people got to be so evil that they were willing to murder innocent people just for their own sick amusement. The media should show us how parents, teachers, friends of others who may have similar problems brewing in their lives can be stopped before they explode and kill others. They should tell us about security measures that have proven themselves to work to protect people from such evil acts. Virginia Tech and Columbine were both "gun free zones." That is a security measure that serves only to save the criminal. It insures that everyone there will be at the mercy of the evil man with a gun in his hand and the desire to shot people. Even if police are only minutes away, a crazed gunman can kill a dozen or more people before help arrives. Having armed security is good but not as good as allowing armed teachers and responsible citizens to protect themselves. It has proven effective time after time in school shootings where a teacher or student with a gun has killed or arrested an armed intruder. Let's do what works, not what is politically correct; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Somali Pirates

Somali Pirates Hijack Ships Somali pirates continued to be unimpressed by the Western navies that prowl their seas. As a result, they continue to prey upon helpless merchant vessels that sail the waters near their shores. These are not the amusing Cap'n Jack Sparrow of the movies. These are cruel, inhuman evil men who force their evil designs on those who are doing nothing wrong. Pirates operate as such because they know that the West will pay them money for the people and ships they take. They are evil, criminals that deserve a prompt and sure punishment. Too many nations are worried about the legal niceties and not worried enough about the lives, ships, goods and mail that are being put in danger by these vicious pirates. Every nation has a right to self-defense as does every innocent person going about his lawful business. No pirate has the right to interfere with the peaceful commerce of merchant shipping. Those who do so should be killed, there is no other way to deal with pirates. Their punishment should be swift and sure. They should be tried on board the ships that capture them and hung within twenty four hours of capture; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Iran

Iran Leader Diplomat Walkout American leaders boycotted the UN address by Iranian leader Ahmadinejad. European leaders attended the event but then walked out when his address was perceived to be racist. A small group of protesters wearing rainbow wigs tossed clown noses at him. So an Islamist fanatic who oversees a nation that is trying to build nuclear armed ballistic missiles to threaten Israel and the west and all we can do is walk out on his speeches and throw clown noses at him. That will show him. It never ceases to amaze me how weak the Western nations are when confronted by evil men representing nations who consistently claim to want to destroy them. For years Iran has made no secret of their desire to destroy Israel and frequently threatens the USA and other nations with total destruction. The nations that he threatens hem and haw and blather and claim that Iran is just misunderstood, that the person making the threat has no real power, that it will be years before they have the ability to attack us, that they are only making threats for domestic consumption, with no real intention of carrying them out. Does anyone seriously think that an Iran armed with long range ballistic missiles is a good idea? Does anyone seriously think that an Iran with nuclear weapons is a good idea? When I ask this question, I often get people who say that America has them so why not Iran? How about because in the last 100 years despite being involved in numerous wars and conquering thousands of square miles and many nations, the USA has always returned those lands to their own people? Rather than constantly threaten to use our nuclear weapons, the US has reduced our arsenal and has helped others do the same. Faced with clown nose attacks, I am sure Iran will back down, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

India

'Slumdog' Child Star Allegedly For Sale The parents of the child star from the movie Slumdog have allegedly tried to sell their daughter. The people of India are in many cases very poor, but they also have a rising middle class. We used to hear all the time about famines in India. Over the years with better farming techniques, and more modern crops they are now able to feed themselves. It is too bad that some still do not value their women and would consider selling a child. There are nearly a billion people in India. We need to continue to try and have good relations with them as they are good allies in the War Against Islamic Terror. There are at least as many middle class people in India as there are in France or Germany. They also have many people who are very rich. Many people speak English and while many don't speak it well, they have many place where people can learn English. The Indian military is very professional. They are operating aircraft carriers and could soon develop the ability to project power. India has a long military tradition and despite looking to domestic issues in the last couple hundred years, that has not always been the case. India should receive more attention in our foreign policy; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

North Korea Wants South Korea

North Korea Rocket North Korea wants to take over South Korea. They have never given up that goal. They know that as long as American troops, backed up by nuclear weapons and with a border containing tens of thousands of land mines that will not happen. The land mine covered border will slow their attack. The presence of American troops will insure reinforcements will arrive soon. If the Americans are in danger of losing the war, they can escalate to nuclear weapons. As a result of this scenario, the North Koreans have implemented a multi-faceted strategy to eliminate the advantages of the Republic of Korea and Americans. First, get everyone in the world to ban land mines. Talk about how terrible it is that little children are killed by land mines all over the world. Speak about how land mines as old as those planted in the First World War, eighty years ago are still killing people. The usual collection of people will support this effort, those who don't understand global politics and those who hate America and those who are Communist supporters of North Korea. The North Koreans constantly lobby for a Korean Peninsula free of foreign troops. Of course, there are no foreign troops in North Korea, they are only in South Korea. They claim that UN, and more particularly, US forces are an occupying force in South Korea. The North Koreans also have tried to secure a "Nuclear Free" Korean Peninsula. Again, this only works to the advantage of North Korea because only the US military has nuclear weapons in or near the Korean Peninsula. The North Koreans will work to develop their own nuclear weapons. This will create a situation where the Americans will be less likely to employ their own nuclear weapons for fear of nuclear retaliation by the North Koreans. They have failed to get American nuclear weapons out of Korea, but even if they did manage that, they would keep theirs. Finally, the North Koreans are working on a delivery system for their nuclear weapons. They want ballistic missiles that they can fire at South Korea, of course, but more importantly, they want to use nuclear blackmail against the United States and Japan to allow them a free hand to attack South Korea. The failure of the US and the UN to stop both the North Korean nuclear weapons programs and the ballistic missile programs are only further signs of weakness that the North Koreans will exploit. President Obama lacks the will to confront the North Koreans in a meaningful way now, I think he will be even less interested when they have nuclear warheads on ballistic missiles that can strike America; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Gun Control Is All About Control

Not only owning the old weapons but firing them is wonderfully fun. I have fired the M-1 rifle many times and it kicks like a mule, but it is manageable if you practice. I own a Colt .45 pistol and it is great. It is my wife's favorite handgun, she says she likes the smell of cordite when the guns are fired . We went to Las Vegas and fired a Thompson, and the Grease Gun too. Both were great on full automatic, not hard to control and loads of fun. My wife liked it so much she wanted to buy a Thompson. They had one in the store for about $1,200, a modern one, but living in California we could not buy one. Too bad. FYI, did you know that in California in 1928 it was legal to order a fully automatic Thompson submachine gun in the mail from out of state, have it delivered to your home, with no waiting period or background check, with 50 round drum magazines and then load them up and drive around with it in your car and that was all legal? None of that is legal now, yet the police are vastly more effective due to better technology and yet violent crime is far worse now then it was then! Gun control has been a total failure in California. Gun control generally does not work to prevent criminals from getting guns; it only disarms the law abiding citizens; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Rats!

Rats can be trained to sniff out landmines and explosives The Sun News God in His wisdom gave us dominion over the creatures of the Earth. And in the humble rat we find a useful friend who can save human lives. It is our duty as Christians to hold the Earth in stewardship for future generations. We have to live a green lifestyle. That does not mean that we must sacrifice our jobs our economies, but we must be aware that the Earth belongs to God not to man. We must take those reasonable steps to preserve the Earth so that our children may enjoy its bounty. Just as that age old pest the rat has proven valuable in scientific research and now in land mine detection, we must look to other animals to provide us with the things we need to improve our lives. I support hunting and fishing, even harvesting of whales and harp seals, as long as the resource is not endangered, as long as the resource can recover. Take no more than what can be used and leave enough for the animals to sustain themselves. There are more white tailed deer in the United States than there were when Christopher Columbus came to the new world. Sport hunting has never lead to the destruction of any species in America. It leads to the preservation of habitat so that hunters can continue to harvest food and clothing and trophies year after year, forever. Being their predator can actual be good for the animals we hunt; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Brazil & White People

Brazil President Blames 'White People' for Crisis - AOL Money & Finance The president of a nation where a few land owners control most of the nation has accused "white bankers" for the recent economic crisis. Where does that leave the people of China, India and Japan? They all seem to have large economies, but I suppose they don't have any influence in the world economy. The economies of the world are inter-related and despite being very conservative I am for free trade. I think that nations should have a core of industries that are protected to insure the nation can feed itself and protect itself. Beyond that they should be open to getting the best deal on the best products no matter where they come from. Brazil is a great nation and has huge potential. Their use of renewable fuels is an excellent idea. They do need to be more careful with their environmental stewardship and take better care of their people. People are the most valuable asset of a nation and teaching them basic skills and insuring a minimal level of health care are important too. Economies go through cycles of up and down, and wise governments prepare for that rather than blame others for their problems; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Just Say No

Tests Show 13-Year-Old is Not a Father - ParentDish The English 13 year old who claimed he got his girlfriend pregnant is not the father of her child. The media rushes to publish gossip rather than news and then it turns out to be false. While I am pleased that the little boy did not sire a child I am still saddened by the entire situation. The morals of the little girl who got pregnant are so poor that it was apparently believable that any number of the neighborhood boys could have fathered the child. The morals of the neighborhood were so poor that many of the boys and parents were unconcerned that it could have been them or their boy. Abstinence is the proper method of birth control for children. It is the only acceptable method for them to avoid pregnancy. There are some things children simply should not do, and having sex with each other is one of those things. Adults should also practice that as well, particularly if they are single parents with children in their household. This is a sad situation and should not be repeated, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Say No to Gore Porn

Harper's Island: The Mystery Unfolds on CBS Television plunges to new depths with this new TV series. I watched a bit of the first episode without knowing anything about it. The show was cruel and disgusting. This is all part of the new mainstream genre of torture porn. Years ago there was concern about violence in movies that was so graphic and so sick that it should be banned or at least given X ratings. Now such video will be shown on a national network in prime time. The degradation of America continues. Study after study shows that watching violent images can desensitize people to violence. Is America not violent enough? How often have we read that teenagers or children saw something on a movie or TV show and decided it would be fun to reenact those events? The senseless nature of the violence is the problem here. There is no moral context to justify the death and violence. There is no redeeming justification for the deaths. These are not soldiers killed in war, robbers killed by police. These are seemingly innocent people who are murdered in perverse and cruel ways. We don't need this on television; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Sue Dad

6th Grader Sues Dad Over Grounding - And Wins - ParentDish Children don't respect their parents. And the court does not respect their parents either. The father of a 12 year old girl punished her by refusing his permission for her to attend a school outing. The girl got an attorney and sued her father saying that it was very important to her that she go with her friends. The judge agreed with the girl. Now the child and father are not speaking. Honor thy father and mother that thy days be long in the land that the Lord giveth thee. Apparently that was never taught in that household, nor in that law school attended by the judge or the girls attorney. Actions have consequences. The father told the daughter if you are on the Internet too much she could not go to the school trip. She was on the Internet beyond what she was supposed to be and so he grounded her. A consequence of the decision she made. The judge then stepped in and usurped the fathers authority and stopped the grounding. I don't want that child to grow up and be around me. She will have an unhappy life, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Nuclear Weapons for Iran

The Obama Administration has said they will participate in talks with Iran about their nuclear program. I feel a giant sucking sound coming from my wallet. Somehow I fear the addition of the USA to the talks will lead to the Obama Administration bribing the Iranians into giving up nothing but everyone will pretend as if they have given up something. Just as the North Koreans promised to give up nuclear weapons programs in exchange for food and then simply failed to comply with almost any of the terms of the agreement. I suspect a similar 'solution' to the Iranian nuclear program can be developed. The Iranians will say they have given up nuclear weapons production and will allow inspectors to check on the situation. The embargo against them will be lifted and business as usual will happen with Iran. Iranian oil will flow to the United States, the Iranians will buy flat screen televisions, computers, luxury automobiles, airplanes, precision aluminum tubing. They will show inspectors empty buildings, empty warehouses, empty filing cabinets as long as the inspectors give them 72 hours notice of an inspection. Then someone will realize that precision aluminum tubing is used to make nuclear materials, and suddenly the whole scam will unravel. Then the West will have to consider putting some of the sanctions back on, at their next meeting. If they are not too busy.

The Sword of the Lord

The Sword of the Lord is the most powerful weapon that we have in the War on Islamic Terrorists. Today in church we prayed this prayer: Let us pray for all who have not received the Gospel of Christ; For those who have never heard the word of salvation For those who have lost their faith For those hardened by sin or indifference For the contemptuous and the scornful For those who are enemies of the cross of Christ and persecutors of his disciples For those who in the name of Christ have persecuted others That God will open their hearts to the truth, and lead them to faith and obedience. Merciful God, creator of all the peoples of the earth and lover of souls: Have compassion on all who do not know thee as thou art revealed in thy Son Jesus Christ; let thy Gospel be preached with grace and power to those who have not heard it; turn the hearts of those who resist it; and bring home to thy fold those who have gone astray; that there may be one flock under one shepherd, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Taxes

Newsmax.com - Rush Limbaugh to NY: Drop Dead Due to the very high taxes paid by the rich in New York City, Rush Limbaugh has voted with his feet. He has announced plans to move his NYC operations to Texas or another state where there is no income tax. One of the many benefits of having fifty states is each one can experiment and see what works best. One thing that works well in Texas is that they don't have an income tax, they make their money on other things or simply don't provide the services that some people feel are essential in other parts of the country. Increasing taxes sometimes has the perverse effect of lowering income. People who don't have a lot of money or who's income does not depend on how hard they work or how many hours they put in, like politicians for example, don't always understand this fact. People work hard and make money when it works to their advantage. At some point you reach an equilibrium where you don't gain enough advantage by working so you cut back on your work and your income declines. When your income declines, your tax rate is not so high and the dollars you add to the system are fewer. So taxes have gone up, but your actual contribution has gone down or remained the same. The rich sometimes work to accumulate things that they really don't need. They work hard to get a third luxury sports car, or a fourth house or a larger yacht. They don't really need those things but they desire them. If they have to work too many hours to obtain those items, because their taxes are too high, they will simply not work as much and do without the extras. They will make do with last years Mercedes, the 40 foot sailboat rather than the 50 foot one, or the home in the city and country and not one at the beach. Of course, the Mercedes dealer will sell one less car, the boat builders may go out of business, and the realtor won't make as much money either, and the government won't collect as much tax on the smaller income. Taxes should be collected to get money to run the essential functions of government, nothing else. They should not be used to create fairness, they should not be used for purposes of social engineering. Everyone should pay at least some tax so that we all have a stake in how the money is spent; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

CPT Stephen Decatur Where Are You?

Top Headlines, U.S., World, Politics, Entertainment and Sports News - AOL News http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stephen_Decatur#First_Barbary_War The captain of a US flagged vessel is being held hostage by pirates from Somalia. The US Navy was founded on the concept of freedom of the seas for American merchant ships. There are few merchant ship that still fly the American flag, but we have a Navy of hundred of vessels and thousands of planes. It is the duty of the US Navy to insure those ships are able to sail anywhere in peace, free to perform commerce and keep trade flowing to and from American ports. The President must order the US Navy to do whatever is necessary to force those pirates to release the captain and insure this never happens again. Almost 200 years ago and American vessels were captured by Muslim extremists pirates and we knew what to do about it then. We sent in the Navy and captured their ships and forced the regime that permitted these barbarous acts to end the raids of the Barbary Pirates. We need to do that again it seems; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Chinese Abortions

America funds China's abortions...again (OneNewsNow.com) Under the Obama Administration, the US government will again be giving money to international agencies that perform abortions. One of them will be spending money to pay for abortions in China. The same China that forces people to have no more than one child or face consequences like forced abortions, job loss and even eviction. The US already has a multi-billion dollar trade deficit with China. Why do they need more American money to pay for abortions? Why can't China pay for their own abortions? Millions of Americans, including me, think that abortion is immoral and we don't want our taxpayer dollars to go towards paying for abortions. The Federal government says they cannot find anything to cut and will have to raise taxes on many American. I certainly don't think that the US government should consider funding abortions for Chinese citizens in China is an essential government function that is so critical that we have to raise taxes to pay for them. This is the first thing we should cut from the budget; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

North Korean Missiles

A Defiant North Korea Launches Rocket North Korea has launched a rocket in defiance of the US, South Korea, Japan, Russia, China and the United Nations. North Korea has simply proved once again that they cannot be trusted to keep their word. They are bound by international agreements not to fire missiles, yet they do so anyway. They are told the international community not to fire the missile and they do it anyway. President Obama will no doubt place a strongly worded memo in the mail to North Korea and a copy will go in their permanent file too. Members of several nations warned North Korea that they may, possibly, consider shooting down the missile, if it looked like it might be aimed at their territory. Well, with an weak international response like that, we can look forward to a massive North Korean missile program. The only thing that North Korea understands is raw brute force. When told we may consider shooting down their missile they threatened to rain down fire on South Korea or the Japanese. So now we not only did anything to stop the North Koreans, but we failed to respond to their threats, so we look doubly weak. The only way to stop this North Korean missile program is to carpet bomb the missile facility when all the technicians are there so they can be killed in the attack. It's the same thing the Allies did to the Germans at Penemunde in World War Two. Of course, now the Allies don't have the courage of their convictions, so we won't do that; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Get Rich Quick

Regulator Sees 'Rampant Ponzimonium' - AOL Money & Finance Now that the economy is slow there are so many people out there who are trying to get rich quick. People who are trying to make up for their losses in the stock market or in real estate. There is an old saying, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!" The old methods of making money apply now just as they always did. Keep your debt low, invest in solid companies for the long term. Work hard and save your money. Don't fall for wild schemes that promise quick returns for little work. Don't fall for quick schemes that you don't really understand. Free market capitalism works to provide the greatest economic good to the largest number of people. Places like Singapore, Japan, South Korea, and Hong Kong have few resources other than the hard work and drive of their people. They practice capitalism and they do well. We would do well if our government would get out of the way of private business and let them make money; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

AIG

Activists Protest at AIG Execs' Homes - AOL Money & Finance The Congress passes a law to bail out AIG and President Obama signs it. The same AIG that gave Candidate Obama $100,000.00. Well, I am certainly glad there is no appearance of a conflict of interest there. Why are big failing companies giving money to political candidates? I am not sure that corporations should be giving much money to politicians at all. Each company is composed of private individuals, why don't they just give their own money to the politicians? Does every stockholder of AIG agree that they should give money to this or that politician? If I am pro-firearms freedom do I want to invest in companies that give money to Democrats? If I am pro-life do I want to own a part of a company that gives money to those who consistently vote in favor of abortion? Now the government has given money to AIG and they want to take control of the company. They want to tell them how much to pay employees. The government already controls too much of private industry. If AIG needed a bailout, then private banks should have loaned them money and let them figure out how to pay it back. If it would not be a good investment to loan AIG money, they should have let the company go bankrupt. That's how private industry works, and that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Too Fat To Work

family too fat to work These people claim they are too fat to work but they are not too fat to go cash that disability check every month. Then they have the gall to complain that they can't make it on the money they are paid. They also complain that they can't buy healthy food to allow them to lose weight on the money they get. If they are so fat that they are disabled, maybe they should be hospitalized for their condition. I guarantee after about six months of hospital food and no visitors they will be thin and ready to work. They are simply looking for an excuse to lounge around and not work. There are so many jobs that require little or no physical effort that you have to be all but bedridden not to be able to work these days. I have no problem with people who have a legitimate disease or injury who can't work. Certainly their are a few and we should help those, because any one of use could end up the same way. Those who can work should have to work, there is much to do and too few hands to do the work; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

I Want to Be George Jetson

Flying Car

There is now an airplane that is also a car. In order to use it in the sky you must have a pilot's license and be able to fly an airplane. In order to use it on the road you must have a driver's license and be able to drive a car. This is a great little vehicle and its' development should be welcomed and encouraged.

This is one way to remove congestion from the surface of the planet and move it into the much more open skies. The real key will be to develop a version that is so simple it does not require a pilot's license to operate. There is another vehicle, the Mollier Sky Car, that has been under development for some time. Their plan is to create a vehicle that will take off and land vertically and fly by computer.

The combination of GPS navigation and computer air traffic control will allow this Sky Car to fly all by itself. The driver will simply enter the location he wants to travel to and push "Go." The Sky Car will then log onto the air traffic control system and take the occupants wherever they want to go. It will free us from the need to build ever wider roadways and long traffic jams. When do we get Rosie the Robot to do our housekeeping? Then we can be just like Mr. Jetson; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Combat Injuries

Plan to bill insurance for combat injuries criticized - Los Angeles Times The Obama Administration floated an immoral and unethical plan to charge combat wounded veterans for the treatment of their combat injuries. While this plan has since been shelved, just the fact that they offered it up as an example shows the contempt liberal Democrats have for our fighting men. This is one of the reasons I don't even like voting for anyone who is not a veteran, and I actually prefer combat veterans when possible. Since the beginning of the Republic the US Government has provided our combat wounded with treatment for their injuries. Now, because they want money and power at any cost, the Obama Administration has proposed that those veterans who have private insurance would have to bill their insurance company pay for their medical treatment. This is unfair to the insurance company to have to pay for a preexisting condition, and unfair to the insurance company to have to suddenly pay for something that was previously paid for by the Federal Government. Since many liberal Democrats don't respect either veterans or private companies these are both good targets in their mind; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

North Korea Captures Journalists

Reports: NKorea military detains US journalists North Korea has detained two US journalists who were filming North Korea from across a river in China. The same North Korea that wants us to trust them with nuclear materials. Tensions on the Korean Peninsula continue to rise but our media simply continues to tell us how beautiful Mrs. Obama is and all about Miley Cyrus. Our politicians are hoping the problem will just go away on it's own. They will continue to hope that until North Korea has developed intercontinental ballistic missiles that can hit first Hawaii and then the mainland. Then they will claim it is too late to take action and blame President Reagan. The North Koreans are capturing journalists, developing nuclear weapons, and preparing to launch a missile, perhaps over South Korea or even Japan. Our media seems to be ignoring the whole affair as if it does not effect us in any way. The US Army has tens of thousands of troops in South Korea. The United Nations is still technically at war with North Korea. A sufficient provocation by North Korea could cause acts by South Korea or Japan that could plunge us into another war. North Korea is not like Iraq or Afghanistan. It could be a big war with tens of thousands of casualties. North Korea could use nuclear weapons. It could get very bad very fast. The US has fought North Korea before and while we won and I am sure we could win again it would be a much different war from any wars we have fought since the 1950s. The US and it's allies should not permit North Korea to launch this missile. We should not simply threaten to shoot it down if it flies in a direction we don't like. In my opinion we should carpet bomb the area around the missile; destroy the missile and kill as many of the scientists and technicians as we can at the same time. That is the only way to insure they won't use this as a further stepping stone to develop the technology to fire intercontinental ballistic missiles at US soil; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
