Red Light Camera Lawsuit: A lawsuit filed against Orlando claims the cameras are unconstitutional -- OrlandoSentinel.com Red light camera are unconstitutional according to a suit filed in Florida. I agree. Cities put them in to make money. The speak about how many people they are going to save by reducing traffic collisions, but they never make the process revenue neutral. The cities always make a huge profit from the cameras. The cameras take a photo of the car and then they send a ticket to the owner. The owner then has to prove he is innocent. What happened to being able to face your accuser? What happened to having your day in court? What happened to being presumed innocent? These cameras are simply another revenue source for local government. They are away to get money and pretend to be fiscally responsible. Just for the record, I have never gotten a red light camera ticket, nor has anyone in my immediate family. These systems should all be taken down and destroyed, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Court orders Christian student to attend public school (OneNewsNow.com) Two parents get divorced and the mother home schools their daughter. The girl scores high on the standardized tests and attends a public school for physical education and a few other courses. The father sued because he does not want his daughter home schooled, but rather sent to public school. The father won his lawsuit because, in part, of the evidence that the daughter had sincerely held religious beliefs. This is typical of the war on religious beliefs. They could not show anything wrong with the way the girl was learning, so they had to show that she was somehow defective because she was too religious. As Christians we need to be careful who we marry. It is important that we not be unevenly yoked. Christians should marry other Christians. They should discuss topics such as how the children will be raised, before they are married. Then these types of problems will not arise in the first place; to be resolved by secular judges. The other thing we need to remember is that marriage is supposed to be forever. Unless there is a very unusual circumstance, we need to stay married. That means we need to choose our partners wisely and know that we may have to endure great hardship if we choose poorly. What God has put together, let no man put asunder; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Black day for English language as phrases banned The Courier-Mail Liberals are restricting speech. They want phrases to be eliminated from documents. How 1984. War is peace and peace is war. Black is white, slavery is freedom. It does not matter that slavery has been gone for over a century. Liberals don't want the word master to be used. It might be offensive. To someone who was never a slave. In a nation that has not had slavery in over a hundred years. In the meantime, real slavery is going on in Muslim nations and these same liberals who are so concerned about hurting someones feelings, when no hurt is intended or even implied, are silent on the topic of real slaves and masters. I suppose if you live in Sudan and are a master to Black slaves, that's okay. If you live in London and speak of a master control computer, you are being offensive; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Why the federal deficit will raise taxes - Aug. 27, 2009 The President is planning on raising taxes to pay for his huge spending plans. He will probably get those taxes he wants from his Democrat Party majority in the Congress. He will probably have to raise taxes even more to pay for his spending. That won't be enough. So he will probably have to cut military spending. He will probably cut troop levels and either lose the war on Terror while claiming victory or work our soldiers far more than they should be worked. With the present spending projections leading to massive deficits and debt service just to keep up. That is not sustainable either. The other way to pay for these spending plans is to grow the economy. With the government running banks, car companies and perhaps even the medical industry, it is unlikely the economy will grow enough to matter, if at all. The only way to pay for the Presidents huge spending program is by inflation. Hyperinflation will solve the President's money problem. If the rate of inflation is double digits for a few years, those huge deficits won't seem so large. Then he can have everyone making $250,000 per year and keep his promise to only raise taxes on those making that much or more; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Senator Ted Kennedy has passed away. Hanging on to power until the last possible moment. Having been a senator longer than almost anyone in the history of the nation was not enough, even when he knew he was terminally ill, he still had to cling on to the trappings of being a senator. Despite decades in the senate, not a single significant bill comes to mind when I think of Ted Kennedy. He served in the senate without distinction, in my opinion. He always championed liberal causes, but even there he has nothing really to show for his time as a senator. He was not an original thinker, he did not have a burning desire to do good for the nation or his state that caused him to push through tough legislation that would change the face of politics. He served his time, collected his paycheck, kept getting reelected term after term, and never really doing anything worthwhile. He was Roman Catholic, but favored denying the right to life of unborn Americans. He claimed to be for freedom, but was willing to take away the Second Amendment gun rights of other Americans. I will not miss him, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

There are many out there who are making charges about "ObamaCare." I have heard these charges and if any of them are true, then the entire bill should be defeated. The government will charge a subsidised rate for insurance that private insurers won't be able to match, running them out of the insurance business. The government will pay for abortion on demand for anyone, no matter their age. The government will pay for assisted suicide. The government will pay for euthanasia. The government will counsel older people to consider suicide. The government will counsel disabled people to consider suicide. The government will provide insurance coverage to illegal aliens. The government will ration care by prioritizing limited resources towards younger, healthier people. I have heard that all of these are in the ObamaCare bill. I have been told none of them are in the bill. It is a sad commentary on our government that we can even believe that these concepts might be true, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/InfidelsAreCool/~3/wLKhe1loSE4/ 450 little girls have been married to their Muslim Hamas adult male husbands. They are following the example found in the Koran and marrying a little girl as their Prophet did. Of course, in Christian lands, men are not permitted to marry little girls. Men don't have sexual relationships with little girls. In modern times these types of relationships are reprehensible. Even if this is only some kind of symbolic marriage, it is still not appropriate behavior between grown men and little children. The Islamic treatment of women and girls is inexcusable. I cannot understand why women would ever turn to Islam. Woman should not vote, they should not drive automobiles, they should not carry weapons, they most marry who their family demands they marry. These are all typical requirements for women who live in Islamic nations. Women are a valuable part of Western societies and as Christians we value women, not oppress women. Islam needs to modernize; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

My Lai massacre: Lt William Calley apologises more than 40 years after Vietnam - Telegraph Lt William Calley apologises for the My Lai incident. Of course, the Communists have not apologised for their violation of the treaties and cease fires. They did not apologise for the Boat People. They did not apologise for the purges, the murders, the terrorists bombs, or for the Killing Fields of millions of people. As usual, the Blame America First crowd runs around looking for Americans to blame for anything bad that happens now or anytime in the past. Bad things happen in war, that is why war is to be avoided when possible. Good nations will place limits on the actions of their soldiers, investigate allegations of wrong doing and prosecute those responsible for the bad things they do. Now America is involved in another war of Hearts and Minds. We are fighting radical Muslims who want to destroy our way of life. They want to convert us into Muslims. They want to terrorize us into giving in to their demands. Continued introspection of previous American illegal acts is only playing into the hands of our enemies; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

BBC NEWS UK Megrahi release 'right decision' The forces of Christendom have lost another important battle in the War Against Islamist Terrorists. The Scottish have released one of those responsible for the explosion of a Pan Am fight and the murder of hundreds of innocent people. The US fought an air battle against Libya as a result of this terror attack. Pan Am one of the worlds oldest airlines was run out of business in part because of this attack. The West tried for years to get Libya to give up the killers responsible for this attack. Now the Scottish have given up one of the killers simply because he has cancer and is not expected to live longer than two months. The killer was sentenced to live in prison, not life minus two months. Did his victims get two months to prepare for death? No, it was sudden and irrevocable, an explosion in an aircraft in flight, nothing they could do except die in terror. Not only is he out of prison, but he was allowed to go home to Libya so the can get a hero's welcome and spend time with cheering crowds and the leader of the nation. An opportunity for the people of Libya to express their gratitude to this hero for destroying the lives of hundreds of innocent Americans and other Westerners. This is typical of the lack of resolve those in the West have for the War. We get tired and we want to quit, like in Lebanon and Somalia. We think we need to show mercy, but what our enemy sees is weakness like in the First Gulf War. In World War Two the US and UK spoke of victory and unconditional surrender, now we have a president who says the victory is not necessary in Iraq. There is no substitute for victory; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Family learned over Internet that son was killed - CNN.com Typical of the main stream media, they make this story into one about the media. It is rather a story about Islamist Extremists recruiting here in the United States to fight wars in Somalia. It is a story about immigrants coming here who are so alien that their adult children do not think of themselves as Americans, but as aliens. It is a story about a huge potential for terror attacks in the United States. At least three men have been recruited from Minnesota to fight a war in Somalia between Islamist Extremist factions. If men will spend thousands of dollars, and give up their safe home in Minnesota, to go to war in Somalia, then they must really have strong beliefs in what they are doing. This is a huge warning to the United States. We must stop bringing more Muslim Extremists into the United States. They are not joining the nation as part of our melting pot culture. They are staying separate, as Muslims often do, and are continuing their wars for dominance in their homeland, using the United States as a safe haven and recruiting station. They are in a position to use their American citizenship to do great damage to this nation if they choose to bring their wars here. Our nation must have stronger rules to prevent people of this type from coming to the USA; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Boxer Rob Newbiggin 'Lost Every Friend' After Revealing Sex-Change Plan -- Boxing FanHouse A professional boxer says he wants to undergo a sex change operation. He also says that he has lost every friend he ever had as a result. No surprise there, real men don't want to consort with men who want to be women. People who want to have sex reassignment surgery in reality have a mental problem, rather than a physical problem in my opinion. Years ago, men who wanted to be women were considered mentally ill. Now however, the medical community has discovered that they can perform long term major surgeries and drug treatments. That means it is in the best interests of the medical profession to treat these people with procedures that will bring in thousands of dollars. Drugs and surgeries are more likely to be covered by health insurance then never ending psychological treatments. They are also more likely to be required by activist judges so that the checks will flow to doctors and hospitals. This is all a big scam by the medical profession to make money, not to treat sick people, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

GEICO Cuts Ads from Glenn Beck's Show - WalletPop A large left leaning insurance company has pulled their advertising dollars from a conservative talk show host's show. Naturally, when conservative companies do this because some show is offensive to conservatives, there is a huge outcry from liberals. They claim conservatives are trying to stifle free speech. They claim conservatives don't want opinions other than their own. They claim conservatives don't want people to participate in free discourse. How is it that when liberals do the same thing, the same arguments don't apply? They don't apply because liberals are allowed to do anything. Liberals think that the ends justify any means, including hypocrisy and lies. Companies have a right to determine where they want to spend there money. If they don't want to support shows that oppose their viewpoints, then they should not advertise on those programs. I think all companies should be more forthcoming about their political viewpoints so their customers can determine if they want to buy from them or from someone else. I certainly would never buy from a company that does not support the Hysterical Right Wing.

Squeaking by on $300,000 - washingtonpost.com A divorced mother and her kids barely making it on $300,000 per year. The values that people have are important. One value that makes a huge difference is that people should be married to one person for life. Unless the spouse dies, the family should stay together. It is not just about commitment to the other person, it is about commitment to the marriage itself and the commitment you make to God when you say your vows. They are vows, not just intentions. If this woman were still married her income would likely be at least $200,000 a year more and her financial problems would be over. It used to be that people got married with the intention of staying together forever. If the other person got sick, then in sickness or health you stayed with them and helped them. If the other person had and affair, or was drifting away from you, then you worked together to repair the damage and build new trust. If nothing else, you stayed together, not because everything was about your own personal fulfillment. It was about caring for the children. Children need a mother and a father in the home to take care of them, to provide for them, to give them role models. Parents used to subsume there own problems and stay together to raise the children because the needs of their children were more important than their own. I would do anything for my child, if that is true, then stay married and love your spouse; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Etiquette for patriotic protest (OneNewsNow.com) How interesting that when the Democrats and other Liberals are protesting, anything goes. Protesting fur? Then throw blood on a little old lady. If you are protesting an economic summit, then break store windows. If you are unhappy with a court decision, then riot, flipped cars over, and murder people. The Bush Administration was constantly compared to Nazis in print, in posters, on television. Yet when Americans go to a public meeting and yell at their elected representatives, then suddenly the discourse is problematic; because it is conservatives who are yelling. The Obama Administration is not only trying to nationalize industry, take away private health care, now they are trying to stifle free speech. They are taking away our economic liberty, and now trying to take away our liberty to discuss why this is wrong. What other freedoms are they looking to take away? That's what I am wondering, here at the Hysterical Right Wing.

Viral Video Chart - Ronald Reagan Speaks Out Against Socialized Medicine We fight the same battles over and over again in each generation. From decades ago, Ronald Reagan talks about his views on ObamaCare. The points he raises are as valid today as they were then. The socialists do all they can to disguise what they really want to do, hoping that conservatives won't remember their history. This audio file reminds us of the fight to keep Americans free is political as well as military. The socialists tell each other what their plans are public announcements, speeches and writings. Then, later, they deny what they said, what they wrote. Not unlike President Obama and his followers who discuss his books and speeches, claiming he never said the things he said or that he really did not mean what he said. The government will tell you when you can do to the doctor. The government will tell the doctor how much he can charge. The government will tell the doctor what procedures he can do on his patients. The government can't pay for Medicare and Social Security, but they will find money to pay for health care for 12 million illegal aliens and tens of millions of Americans. I find that all disturbing; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.politicsdaily.com/2009/08/10/gay-christians-discord-in-the-pews/ A long and naturally, pro-gay article in the main stream media talks about how gays should be included into churches, again naturally, misses the whole point of the Christian experience and teaching. The church is about people who are forgiven. Gay people often feel left out of the mainstream and the church can make them feel a part of an organization where they are accepted. The problem with this attitude is that it is only half of the equation. Forgiveness and an admonition to sin no more. The church as always called homosexual activity a sin and like any other sin it has forgiven it, admonished the sinner to stop doing it, and make amends if necessary. Homosexuality is no different from any other sexual sin. If a married man is cheating on his wife he is committing a sexual sin, just like a homosexual man who is having sex with another man. Both of them are unacceptable candidates for ordination, both are living a sinful existence, both of them need to ask forgiveness and stop the sin. Forgiveness will be given to those who ask, but they must be sincere and they must stop the sin. "Go forth and sin no more." Forgiveness is not approval to continue to sin, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Piracy fears off UK coast after cargo ship disappears in English Channel - Times Online A ship in the English Channel has disappeared and there are those who fear pirates may have taken over the vessel. If it is pirates, I would suspect they are Islamist extremists as the pirates from the African coasts have been. If it is pirates, no matter who they are, then this is a very serious matter. The English Channel is one of the most heavily travelled waterways in the world. It carries thousands of ships of all sizes every year, including many with thousands of people on board. A pirate problem in the English Channel is no small matter. The USA is a maritime power. We get goods from all over the world and we ship goods all over the world. Piracy is a direct attack on the way of life of the people of the United States. Piracy increases shipping costs and insurance costs. Without a way to ship goods the United States will be in big trouble. If the English Channel is not safe, then few waterways will be safe. The US has a vested interest in finding out what happened and making sure it does not happen again, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

New ENDA bill 'turns private sin into a public right' (OneNewsNow.com) The Federal Government is looking at increasing the number and type of people they protect against discrimination. Why is it if I own an apartment building that I can't have the freedom to rent to who ever I want to rent it to? If I want to make a living by renting apartments, then market forces will generally cause me to rent to people who have the money to pay for the apartment every month. Who are what they are would generally be secondary to me. But if I choose to discriminate on any basis, why can't I do that? If it is my apartment building, I should have the right to do with that property anything that I want to do that does not cause direct harm to others. If there is a market for specific people, then again the free market will fill that niche. The Federal Government continues to trample the rights of employers, business owners, apartment owners and home owners to enforce some vague idea of fairness. Why is it fair to have the Federal Government force me to rent my apartment, sell my house, provide a job, service a customer that I as the owner don't want to deal with? People should be free from government interference in where they life, work or buy. Private companies and private individuals should have the freedom to just say no; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

School officials face jail time for meal-time prayers (OneNewsNow.com) School official pray and they are now facing jail time. The First Amendment says we have freedom of religion. It does not say that we have freedom from religion. We don't have the right to avoid all religion in any public place. What the Constitution says is that the government will not respect any establishment of religion. Now the courts and ACLU have made atheism a new religion and are forcing that on the people as a state religion. Anytime someone who is not a Christian wants to complain about Christians, liberal organizations swoop in and find liberal judges to infringe on the rights of Christians. They do this not because they want to preserve our freedoms, they do this because they want to fight the truth of Jesus Christ. Any non-Christian group, Wicca, Radical Islam, tries to pray someplace and the liberals are all over it pressing for their "religious freedom." They want to upset the establishment. They want to destroy the religious tradition of our nation; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Health care for illegal aliens. Abortion on demand. Euthanasia for older Americans. Assisted suicide for those who want it. Gender reassignment surgery. The Obama Healthcare Plan may include all of these, all at taxpayer expense. It may not include any of these. I don't know, I suspect few others really know either. There are several bills and one of them in the House of representatives is over 1,000 pages long. I know there are people with no health insurance. I understand how hard it is to pay for health services without health insurance. There is so much we could do for people without a huge bureaucratic organization taking over all health care. Require everyone to have health care. If you make less than a certain amount then give people a voucher that they can give to a private insurance company for a minimum coverage, to include modest co pays. Eliminate most of the malpractice lawsuits. Make autopsies mandatory one everyone who dies and publish the findings. Make public the outcomes of all surgeries and the track record of the doctors who perform them. Make insurance companies take anyone who can pay the premium and make them keep the person for as long as they pay the premium with no preexisting condition restrictions after thirty, or sixty or ninety days. Have the states administer programs with matching Federal grants to operate county hospitals that will serve those who cannot pay. Combine all Federal healthcare into one agency, so the Senate, House, all Federal employees, the Post Office, Veterans will all get the same health care system. I don't trust any plan that excludes the Congress and the care they get; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.politicsdaily.com/2009/08/04/obama-joker-picture-pops-up-in-los-angeles-and-across-the-inte/ Someone made up posters of President Obama as the Batman character "Joker." Under a picture of President Obama with Joker makeup on, is the single word "Socialist." Democrats are beside themselves anger and use vitriolic terms to disparage this poster. Some have even called the poster dangerous. Dangerous? Their reactions to this poster seem quite extreme. I remember all kinds of negative poster images of President Bush. Did these same Democrats express their fear that posters of President Bush as Hitler were dangerous? I suspect they did not. Funny how the poster of a US President as a totalitarian dictator and enemy of the United States is not really a problem if it is a Republican president. It is also funny how a poster of the US President depicted as a fictional character is dangerous if it is a Democrat; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Obama May Raise Taxes on Middle Class Members of the Obama Administration have been raising test balloons to see how well a middle class tax increase flies. They keep saying on one hand they have no intention of raising taxes on those who make less than $250,000 per year and then on the other hand looking for ways to raise more revenue to cut the deficit. The Democrats know that they have to either cut spending or raise more taxes. They want to spend so much money they could take everything from the rich and they still would not have enough money to do all they want to do. The deficient is so large that something bad will have to happen in the next couple years. The Democrats don't like to cut spending, only by ending the War on Islamic Terror can they cut any significant amount of money from the budget. Of course, now that they are in charge, they don't want to be held responsible for losing the war. Or they can continue to borrow money, but at some point you have to pay the money back and can't go on borrowing more money forever. The only thing left, is to raise taxes on the middle class, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

NJ Corruption Arrests The FBI has been investigating corruption and arrested "mayors of Hoboken, Ridgefield and Secaucus, Jersey City's deputy mayor, and two state assemblymen. A member of the governor's cabinet resigned after agents searched his home, though he was not arrested. All but one of the officeholders are Democrats." What a shocker, Democrats are corrupt. Even under the Obama Administration the FBI is still finding and arresting Democrats who are corrupt. As usual, the main stream media gives us a few minutes of the story and then it disappears from the headlines. If these were Republican politicians we would hear about this from every media source, probably for years. Instead, the main stream media spends weeks on Michael Jackson. They still follow every little aspect of his heirs and their lives. He is not important, nor are his heirs. What is important is our democracy is under attack by this type of systemic corruption that is the Democratic Party; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Hillary Clinton Threatens to Cut Intelligence Sharing With the U.K. -- Politics Daily While Bill Clinton is apologizing to our enemies in North Korea, Hillary Clinton is threatening our friends in the UK. The US and UK have had a close relationship for over a hundred years. We fought in two World Wars together, and Korea, Desert Storm and now the War on Islamic Terror. Yet, the bunglers in the Obama Administration have threatened to cut intelligence sharing with the UK over a trial in the UK. This is stupid on so many levels. First, the legal system in the UK is being used by Islamic terrorists as a propaganda venue to smear both the UK and the US. Too many in the Western World forget that we are waging a war of ideas as well as bombs against radical Islam. The terrorists never forget that. Second, the UK frequently does intelligence gathering better than the US. So for the US to threaten the UK with cutting intelligence sharing is just as likely to hurt us as it is to hurt them. These two nations need to continue to stand together to hold the other nations of Christendom together against the Islamic Terrorists. This type of public feuding serves no one but our enemies; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Laura Ling, Euna Lee in North Korea Captivity http://www.kcna.co.jp/index-e.htm North Korea plays the United States as fools. In North Korea two Americans get kidnapped from the Chinese border and then imprisoned under harsh conditions after being sentenced to nine years hard labor. In America, people come here illegally, live for years and President Obama wants to give them free health insurance. North Korea gets to have a former President of the United States visit them for a photo opportunity. It shows their "Dear Leader" as a man who is catered to by important foreign officials. It shows the United States goes to North Korea to grovel at their feet to beg them to release our citizens. Remember, the media in North Korea is all state controlled. There is no blogging, no Internet, no cable news, all there will be is official North Korean news. A clear propaganda victory for North Korea; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Remains of U.S. Pilot Missing 18 Years in Iraq Found - International News News of the World Middle East News Europe New. The remains of Captain Michael "Scott" Speicher have been found in Iraq and recovered. He was killed in the first Gulf War. Thanks to the US Navy and his family they never gave up the search and he has been brought home for burial. Welcome home, brave hero. I saw this week that Hollywood is producing movies about serial killers, bank robbers, murderers, child molesters, and mass murders. Why don't we have a movie about the life of this American hero who gave his life for what he believed in? Hollywood says they support the troops, but I see very little evidence of that support. On a TV show I was watching yesterday, the murderers were US military personnel in Iraq. So much for support; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/asiapcf/07/26/india.nuclear.submarine/index.html?eref=rss_topstories India has launched their first home build nuclear submarine. They are making nuclear submarines in India. As a kid growing up all I used to hear about India was that they had lots of starving people there. Now we hear about people in India taking American jobs. One of those jobs is building nuclear submarines. How many nuclear submarines has the US Navy launched this year? How many are we building? Do you want the United States Navy to be the most modern and most powerful in the world, or the Indian Navy? The world is changing rapidly. The US is exporting jobs to India and now they are building nuclear submarines. Where will we be in a few years? Why are we trading with Communist China when a democracy that is also fighting a War on Islamic Terrorists is advanced enough to make nuclear submarines? We need an Indian policy; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Hate Engulfs Christian Minority in Pakistan - NYTimes.com The Religion of Peace says that Christians burned a Koran at a wedding. Christians were accused of this defamation of the Koran and so 20,000 Muslims poured out into the street and attacked a Christian neighborhood. They burned down homes and murdered seven people, just because they were Christians. The Religion of Peace does not tolerate anyone who thinks differently from them. They know that theirs is a false religion and so they attack anyone who they think is not a follower of their religion. They even attack other members of their religion if they are not sufficient fundamentalist or enthusiastic in their devotion. The Religion of Peace is no a religion of peace. It is a religion of violence and terror. All over the world, even in areas like Pakistan where 95% of the people are Muslims, that is not enough for them. They have to drive out or murder anyone who is not part of their religion; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Orange County - Waiter, There's a Used Condom in My French Onion Soup - Navel Gazing - OC Weekly A family goes to a restaurant and one of them claims to have found a used condom in their soup. Naturally, lawsuits will follow. What is this really worth? What damage have they really suffered? How often does this happen and who is really responsible? Okay, free dinner for the whole group and a coupon for the next dinner free. Other than that, what else should they get? Some jerk decided to toss a condom into their employers food and then as a society we need to punish the employer? How about calling the police and conducting an investigation for food tampering? Then when someone is convicted the person really responsible can be punished. Too many lawyers are trying to get rich on the criminal acts of others by financially punishing third parties. The restaurant does not routinely place used condoms in their food. It is certainly not in their best interest to do that. I am sure they train their employees all about food safety. They are regularly inspected by the health department. No one should get rich over this; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://unitedagainstnucleariran.com/ibr/industry/hotels President Ahmadinejad is planning on a visit to the United Nations when the General Assembly opens on September 15, 2009. Most businesses open to the public have a little sign that says they reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. He and his party should be forced to stay at the Iranian Mission to the UN and not at a hotel. They should be forced to endure the isolation that they have forced on their own people. As a result of their continuing work to develop nuclear weapons, and then the repression of their own people who protested the election fraud, the Iranian government officials should be denied the ability to stay in a civilized hotel. They should not have cable television, Internet services, or even long distance phones. Their service to the mission should be cut off during their visit. These little bits of harassment should be done to show them that the American people don't believe the Iranian government is acting in the best interests of their people or the world community. In the old days, American intelligence agents would probably tried to gather information on the Iranians during their visit. Democrats in Congress, and our President have been poor practitioners of intelligence gathering in the last twenty years. So there is no reason for the Iranians to stay at a hotel; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

My wife showed me an article in the August 2009 issue of Vanity Fair. They talk about the endowments for Harvard University having lost about 50% of their value in the last few years. The stock market falling is one big reason why they lost money. The other reason is that they have been using the endowments to fund operating expenses, including payroll. The use of endowments for payroll does not ever seem to be a good idea to me. Payroll is a bottomless pit that can never have enough money tossed into it. Pay is always too low, no matter how much people are paid. There is never enough staff, no matter how many employees there are working. Now that money is tight they are calling for no layoffs. I have always figured the way to avoid layoffs is rather than cut 10% of the work force, simply cut every ones pay about 12%. Then you can find out how much people really want to avoid layoffs. Is it worth a pay cut to you to keep your friends job? Naturally, government, unions and non-profit organizations never want pay cuts either; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
