The Obama Administration is pushing to allow homosexuals to serve openly in the US military services. They say it is not a big deal, and that many serve now and so why not just let it happen? This is big deal, and it's not just about straight soldiers being uncomfortable in the showers, the restroom, the foxhole, and the bed. When an openly homosexual soldier shows up with his "lawfully" wedded spouse from Iowa, will the "spouse" be entitled to dependant benefits, as a traditional married couple? If two openly homosexual male soldiers what to marry each other, in Vermont, will the military have to recognize the marriage? What happens when to homosexual male soldiers want to get married to each other, will the military chaplains be forced to marry them? Will same sex marriage become legal and forced by permitting homosexuals to serve openly in the military? Will Roman Catholic priests and other traditional Christian chaplains be forced to go against either the regulations of the military or the teachings of their churches by being required to perform same sex marriages for military homosexuals? Homosexuals serving openly in the military is a huge problem; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Associated Press: US rifles not suited to warfare in Afghan hills When I was in Junior ROTC in high school, in ROTC in college and the Army Reserve I had occasion to use a number of American Army rifles. The M-1 Garand, the M-14 and the M-16. Since then as a police patrol rifle instructor I have used the M-4 series, modified M-16 types, in police training. While I never served in combat, I have been using these rifles for almost forty years. The US Rifle M-16 is an excellent weapon. It has been in service about fifty years, and that's a great run for any weapons system. It does have it's limitations. When we first started using the M-16 rifle we were told it was a close range weapon for jungle warfare or city fighting. We were told the Army units in Europe were planning on keeping the M-14 because it was better for the longer engagement ranges of open country in Europe. As time went by the M-14 was withdrawn and replaced by the M-16 series. The M-16 is lighter, easier to fire, and since the rounds are much smaller, troops can carry the same amount of ammunition or more with less weight. In my opinion there are two reasons for this change. The Army does not want to teach marksmanship in peacetime, so they save money and make things easier for the volunteer Army. They other reason is that female soldiers and smaller male soldiers have difficulty firing the heavier M-14 with it's much larger bullets. So rather than make it difficult on the female soldiers, we simply change the standard, and then they all pass firearms training, because they don't have to fire the more difficult M-14. Being diverse is more important that being competent; that's the view of the Army, but not the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Newsletter While the liberals who run the City of Los Angeles are siding with illegal lawbreakers against the State of Arizona, California Assemblyman Van Tran along with Assemblyman Mike Feuer has been working on the passage of AB 1650 that would prevent the State of California from investing with companies that do certain business with Iran. Arizona is part of the United States and is facing a terrible invasion of illegal aliens, mostly from Mexico. They are trying to bring law and order back to a border that his rife with drug and human smuggling and murder. They are trying to make sure the taxpayer dollars of the people of Arizona are not spent on welfare for people who don't even belong in the United States. At a time of economic slowdown, we should not be looking away when people enter our nation with their hands out asking for money. We should be shipping them back home where their own nation can take care of them. On the other side of the world and ideology, is Iran. Their president frequently makes threats against the United States or our allies. He is going full force to make nuclear weapons and long range missiles. Despite UN resolutions, and international pressure he continues to long for massive destructive power. The City of Los Angeles, would do well to look at the deeds of Van Tran and worry more about American jobs, American lives, American interests, than those of foreign nations and their nationals; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

North Korea Warns of War if Punished for Ship Sinking - AOL News As feared, North Korea torpedoed a South Korean ship in international waters. At the time, many apologists for North Korea told us that this could not have been an act of war by North Korea. They told us that North Korea would never do such a thing and it had to be an internal explosion caused by the South Korean ship malfunctioning. Now the international tribunal conducting the investigation has shown proof that the North Koreans did in fact, sink the ship, killing many South Korean sailors. North Korea then immediately says that all out war will result if anything is done about their sinking of the ship. They deny any involvement and they say they will risk war with the US and South Korea rather than accept any punishment of any kind over the attack. Naturally, the main stream media keeps telling us that there is nothing we can do over the attack. Unfortunately the US has unilaterally disarmed in the last twenty years since the end of the Cold War with the Soviet Union. There are still many nations that seek to do us harm, North Korea, Iran, Venezuela, and the non-government forces of Radical Islam. North Korean needs to pay a heavy price for the sinking of the South Korean ship, and killing of their sailors. We need to station our navy there to support South Korea in a show of force. I would even send additional ground troops to South Korea as well; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

FOXNews.com - L.A. Mayor Dismisses Warning That Arizona Could Cut Off Power Over Boycott The City of Los Angeles has been so co-opted by the illegal aliens that they voted to stop doing business travel to the state of Arizona to protest their new anti-illegal immigration law. Now the state of Arizona has fired back. Arizona provides 25% of the electricity to the City of Los Angeles. Arizona has said they may cut that electrical energy, in retaliation. It is not the business of the City of Los Angeles to tell the State of Arizona how to conduct their business. The City of Los Angeles has certainly not solved the problem of illegal immigration to their city. The citizens of LA have to pay millions of dollars for crime, schools, and welfare for illegal aliens. If the city had solved the problem then they may have a point, to ask others to emulate their example. Yet, they have not solved that problem and don't even seem to offer any suggestions on how to stem the tide of illegal aliens coming into the US. I hope that Arizona actually follows through with their threat of cutting electricity to Los Angeles. While I don't live in LA, I would be willing to do without 25% of my electricity I if did live there, if it would help our illegal alien problem. In fact, illegal immigration makes all of our shortages worse. We are short of water, electricity, and our roads are jammed. Having millions of illegal aliens here only makes all of those problems worse. I wonder if all the illegal aliens went home, how much improved all those problems would be? We need to take control of our borders, if the Federal government won't then the States should step in; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Associated Press: Calif. bill aimed at molesters would cost millions The main stream media says it is too expensive to save our children from child molesters. It would cost millions of dollars to lock up a few hundred child molesters for live and monitor a few thousand more who are allowed out of prison. I say we cannot afford not to lock up these evil men who do terrible things to our children. It costs millions of dollars to locate, investigate and try each of these criminals when the commit these despicable acts against children. It is money well spent to lock them away and never let them out to do these bad things ever again. If we don't have enough money to lock up these bad guys, then we need to figure it out. Perhaps we need to develop a more minimum security prison system that does not require the construction and as many guards to operate as our present system. A prison out in the desert so far that an escapee would die in the heat might be a good option. Privatize some of the prisons to provide cheaper alternatives to the present system. Cut other programs, are parks, or roads, or legislative salaries more important than keeping child molesters away from our children? I can think of few things more important than keeping our children safe from child molesters. This law needs to pass, these evil men need to go to jail and stay in jail, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

North Korea says they will respond with all out war of they are punished at all for their torpedo attack on the South Korean ship. The West says that we must be careful, use a measured response. Too often we allow little runty nations to threaten us, and even attack us and our allies without them having to pay a price. Somalia captures American and allied ships and holds them for ransom and kidnaps our citizens. Iran threatens us with nuclear weapons and we chat about it, but do nothing. Venezuela threatens to create an anti-American block in South America and we praise him rather than oppose him. There was a time when other nations paid a price for killing or kidnapping Americans or those of our Allies. In the early 1900s a Chinese warlord kidnapped two American Christian missionaries. An American Naval gunboat sailed up river, deposed the warlord, installed a pro-American ruler and freed the missionaries. Afterwards he cabled Washington with the results and of course they approved. Today too may despots kidnap, kill or threaten Americans with little or no consequences. We allow or enemies to become too strong and the bemoan the fact that it will be difficult to fight them. President Obama takes American missile defenses out of Central Europe to appease the Russians, but the real threat of Iranian missiles is still there. In the meantime Poland and the Czech Republic are unhappy because they stood against Russia banking on American support, which President Obama took away. So we appear weak to our Allies, our enemy Iran and our competitor Russia. America is in decline. If it was up to me we would sink every ship North Korea has over thirty feet long; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Miss USA Winner Rima Fakih's Pole-Dancing Photos Add to Misgivings for Muslims - AOL News A Muslim American has won the Miss USA pageant. Then later, pole dancing photos of her surfaced which seem to distance her further from traditional Islamic roles for women. She also says that she celebrates both the Christian and Muslim faiths. What? Both Christianity and Islam are exclusive faiths. Neither of them claim that a person can be both at the same time. They both claim to have the exclusive method and doctrines for salvation. How can a person claim to celebrate both faiths? I suspect it is because that person is not true to either of them. While I am pleased that an Arab American has blended into the melting pot of American culture and participated in the Miss USA contest, I don't think we should be celebrating this as a huge breakthrough in Islamic - American relations. I think that the average Radical Muslim would want to do her great harm because of her Americanization; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2010/may/19/sex-offender-suspect-two-crimes/ This criminal gets sent to prison for ten years in 1995 for rape. He gets out, not in 2005 but in 2000, serving less than half of his sentence. Then he is given ten years in 2004, but again he is out in 2010, serving a bit over half his sentence. He has been given 20 years in prison and has served fewer than ten years behind bars. Once he is out on parole he took off his GPS bracelet. So much for the high tech monitoring system that tracks his whereabouts so we don't have to worry about him. He is supposed to check in with his parole officer once a month, and he gives his address as a Wal-Mart. So much for supervised release. He does not even have a real address. Now that he is out, apparently homeless and unsupervised he turns right back to crimes. He according to news reports tried to kidnap a boy, then a girl, and ended up stabbing her. This is the state that is wise enough to release prisoner early to save money. The same state prison system figured this guy was safe to release after serving nine years out of twenty years, sentenced for violent crimes. Criminals like this guy are why we have a three strikes law, so they can stay locked up forever. How many years will it be before the little 12 year old boy and the 14 year old girl are over their trauma? Ten, twenty, or more? Given this guys track record, he will be out of prison long before they have solved their psychological problems; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://news.oneindia.in/2010/05/19/somalian-siezed-us-ship-no-imprisonment.html A pirate was part of a group that attacked and took over an American ship off the coast of Somalia. American sailors were terrorized until they were saved by the US Navy. One pirate was captured and taken back here to the USA for trial. This is where the problem starts. He is apparently not going to go to prison. There is concern at the United Nations that individual nations don't have the legal authority to conduct trials of pirates captured off the coast of Somalia. The "government" of Somalia claims that suspected pirates should be turned over to them for trial. So, Western Nations that are being victimized, having millions taken in ransom, and their people murdered and kidnapped are supposed to depend on third parties to prosecute those who victimize their citizens in international waters? Historically, there is a method of taking care of piracy on the high seas. Any pirates that are captured could be tried on the Navy ship that captures them. If the captain of the ship finds them guilty, the pirates could be hung from the yard arm. Ship captains have great power and are very knowledgeable about the laws of the seas and the danger of unrestrained piracy. Pirates should not be tried in the US, Somalia, or by the UN, they should be tried at sea; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Vanity Fair's Young Hollywood Whitewash - DailyFinance Vanity Fair magazine ran a cover with nine women on it. They were all up and coming young actresses. All of the women are White. Immediately people began to criticize that none of the women were Black or Hispanic. Nine women out of the thousands of women who act in America. "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." Too many people have already forgotten those words. In that speech there is no indication that every group should be represented in every gathering. There is no indication that people should be sorted by race. Had Vanity Fair had a special issue of up and coming Black women or Hispanic women actresses would anyone care? Why is it that a simple photo that shows a few women on the cover of a magazine creates such despair? If we are to be a color blind society, then I would expect that some magazines would have all White people on the cover and some with all Blacks or all Hispanics on the cover, and no one should care. It was a story about actress, not a story about race; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Sex sting in Poconos nets former chief U.N. weapons inspector PoconoRecord.com Scott Ritter who was one of the United Nations weapons inspectors in Iraq before the war was arrested for attempting to solicit sex with a little girl on the Internet. He was actually talking to a police officer. He is alleged to have performed sex acts on a web camera. This is at least the second time he has been involved in a sex scandal involving young girls. The first time he claimed it was simply a smear to discredit him. He had been highly critical of the Bush Administration and their handling of the Iraq weapons inspections. I don't know if the charges against Scott Ritter are true or not. There is no reason to suspect the police in the most recent incident had any idea who they were dealing with. They are police from a small town in the Eastern US; they frequently do stings to try and catch child predators. The left certainly is known to rally around those with sexual dysfunction, the whole gay agenda has opened the way for many other types of sexual perversion. Their lack of traditional values extends from politics to sexual activities; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Patrick Henry was a great American patriot. He wrote in 1776: "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For that reason alone, people of other faiths have been afforded freedom of worship here.” I hear liberal all the time telling us that America is not a Christian nation. They frequently go on to quote the separation of church and state letter, out of context, written by Thomas Jefferson. They rarely ever quote any of the other Founding Fathers. If you read their works, their speeches, their private papers, you will find that nearly all of them were Christians. They were not only Christians, but they spoke and wrote frequently of their belief in the Almighty God of the Bible. When people try and tell me that the United States is not a Christian nation, I try and explain to them that while the Government is not endorsing a specific Christian denomination, the Founding Fathers expected the nation to be composed primarily of Christians, primarily ruled by other Christians. They expected that they would respect the rights of the pagan Indians while attempting to convert them. They never expected significant numbers of non-Christians coming to the United States, nor the rise of secular humanism as a religion; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

BBC News - The brigadier who saved Sierra Leone A British Brigadier General was sent to Sierra Leone to rescue British citizens and other Europeans from a capital under siege by rebel forces. The rebels were poised to topple the government and since they were terrible blood thirsty criminals the citizens were justifiable afraid. The Brigadier had a battalion of 800 soldiers to rescue the foreigners. He made an assessment of the fighting abilities of his troops, the government forces and the rebels and determined that he could avoid a bloodbath and disaster by intervening in the situation. The General deployed his forces and destroyed the rebels. The General did most of this before he got permission from his government. This is how major nations behave. In the 19th Century communications were much slower than they are now. Generals and admirals were supposed to be able to analyze the situation and take the actions that were best for the interests of their nations. American, French, British and other nations toppled governments, deposed despots and wiped out warlords to keep their countrymen safe and to prevent evil and cruelty all over the world. When the skirmishes were over, they would telegraph their governments with the results. We need more of that today, rather than micromanagement from Washington every time a pirate captures a ship or a despot kidnaps an American; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Islamic world has been at war with the rest of the world since the beginning of Islam. The Middle East was once Christian. Those Epistles in the Bible were generally written to churches that have since been destroyed by Islam. I can't think of a single Islamic nation that I would want to live in and only a handful that I would want to visit, and that only for a few days. Radical Islam is a danger to the West. Secular humanism is nearly useless in fighting against it. Political correctness only serves to mask who the real danger is, because it is not politically correct to call Radical Islam a danger to the West. We have to fight terrorism, a tactic, not Radical Islam, an idea. That's like saying we had to fight Blitzkrieg, but not the Nazis. Even the totalitarian Soviet Union and Peoples Republic of China were unable to stop the spread of Radical Islam within their borders. If European leaders don't stand up soon, they won't be able to do so. The demographics are against them. They encourage their citizens to avoid having children while the Muslims in their nations have large families. They allow massive legal and illegal immigration from Islamic nations who bring Radical Islam with them. That's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Dennis Prager : Left Is Certain of Tea Partiers' Motives, but Finds Terrorists Inscrutable - Townhall.com The left, including most of the media, seems to look toward the white, Christian, male as the suspect in any terrorist attack, but can't understand that a man who is a Muslim extremist might attack because he is a Muslim extremist. Islam has been spread by the sword since the beginning. The Middle East became Muslim because Islamic armies conquered the region and destroyed all the Christian churches. Radical Islam continues to try and spread their religion by the sword. They tried to blow up Times Square and the media wondered if it was Tea Party people. They have a radical Muslim US Army officer, shouting Islamic slogans as he murdered people and the media seems to think he suffers from some kind of medical condition. We are at war. Radical Islam has declared war on Christianity, on The West, on the United States. It's too bad that those very groups are not fighting back, are not even able to speak the name of the enemy. Radical Islam is our enemy. They are attacking us everyday. We need to fight back and speak the truth about our enemy; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Cross taken, vets offended - reward offered (OneNewsNow.com) This is how the left operates. A man wanted to commemorate the loss of tens of thousands of American soldiers in the First World War. So he went out into the desert in the 1920's and erected a cross. A cross just like those that commemorate the graves of the fallen American soldiers. Then after over eighty years of display on public lands, one person complains about it being a Christian cross on public lands. They find some liberal judge who says the cross is suddenly illegal after all that time. So the veterans get together with the Congress and they determine that they can deed the land over to private ownership and take some similar land in exchange. Naturally, this is not good enough for the leftist, anti-Christians. They say the land deal is not good enough and the cross has to be removed. For them it is not really about a cross on public land, it is about destroying all public displays of Christianity. So they go back to court and the judge makes them cover the cross while they try and figure out what to do about the cross. They cover a memorial to thousands of World War One Americans that had stood undisturbed for over eighty years without a problem. So they go to court and finally the court determines the cross is okay and can be uncovered. Soon after it is uncovered, the cross is stolen. The leftist hate the true cross of Christ. If they can remove it with the courts they will remove it that way. If that does not work, then they will go outside the law and just destroy it. They real battle never was about the separation of church and state, it was good versus evil and by stealing the cross we know who the evil ones are; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

LA Council Bans Official Travel to Arizona to Protest Immigration Law - AOL News The City of Los Angeles has banned official city travel to Arizona. The city council members are so lying about what the Arizona law means. They claim that just because they don't have their passport in their pocket they can be stopped and deported immediately. How foolish. The police have to have a legitimate reason to stop you and have to suspect you are here illegally before they check your citizenship status. A California Drivers License would be enough to indicate you are a legal American. If someone is driving they are required to have their license with them. How many adults go out of the house without their wallet and documents? I never leave home without my license and numerous other forms of identification. Rather than run around and claim that this law is racist and evil, why don't we wait and see if anything bad happens in Arizona. This law has not even go into effect yet. If the law works, and illegal immigration decreases significantly in Arizona, then the other states should do this too. If the law does not work, then perhaps other states can try something else. I suspect that most of the people who oppose this law simply don't want illegal aliens deported at all and they suspect this law will actually work; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The main stream media will tell use for the next few months that Ms. Kagan is a moderate. They will tell use that she is mainstream. They will tell us that her views reflect those of the American people. Eventually, the alternate media will reveal the truth about The main stream media will then tell us that she is very special. They will tell us Elena Kagan is very smart. The MSM will tell us that she is very well qualified. The MSM will tell us that she is speaking for people who have been under-represented on the court. They will tell us everything, except the truth that America needs to know about her. Elena Kagan is an extreme radical. She threw military recruiters off of a college campus. To my mind that alone is enough that she should never hold any position of trust in the US government. The military in the US is not political and obeys the orders of the civilian authorities. They should never be tossed off of a college campus because the college authorities have a problem with military policies, and yet she did that. An anti-military radical does not belong on the Supreme Court; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Right-Wingers Boo Roger Ebert in Cinco de Mayo Controversy - AOL News AOL calls American patriots "Right-Wingers." When was the last time they called a group "Left-Wingers." They never said that of the leftist who heckled President Bush. Then they go on to defend Roger Ebert who sided with the aliens against Americans at a high school where those displaying the American flag were sent home from school. They said it was Cinco de Mayo and that those displaying Old Glory were not joining in the spirit of the holiday. Why should Americans join in the spirit of a foreign country’s holiday? Why should the majority accept the will of the minority? In a school that is 40% Hispanic and 50% White? Why should we assume that just because someone is Hispanic they are automatically less of an American than the White people? Why isn't wearing a Mexican flag at an American school a provocation? When has it become a provocation to display the American flag in America at an American government institution? What flag was the school flying out front? It should have been the American flag. It should be the flag that all of us, White, Black, Hispanic or anything else, should be flying if they are to live here in the good old USA; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Comedy Central considers series mocking Christ (OneNewsNow.com) Comedy Central was concerned that Radical Muslims were targeting them due to the offensive nature of a show they broadcast called South Park. The South Park show was mocking Islam. So when Radical Muslims called them on it, Comedy Central immediately censored their shows. Despite years of complaints by Christians that Comedy Central was mocking Christianity, they continue to mock Christ on their show. Now, as if that is not enough, Comedy Central is considering a show, with the basic premises being that Christ is a main character and they will mock him as the main point of the show. The entire premises is heresy and offensive to Christians. Comedy Central does not mind, however, because Christians don't blow people up, they don't murder them on the street, and they don't destroy their buildings because they are mocked for their beliefs. I have not heard the Comedy Central is making any more shows that mock Islam. Comedy Central is typical of the liberal left. The talk about freedom of expression but what they really mean is freedom for them to devalue the traditional values of Western society. They back down whenever they are threatened. They back down because they lack moral courage. They back down and then hide behind Christian soldiers and Christian police who risk their lives to protect them; all the while mocking their beliefs; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

CULTURE NEWS: Pastor Jailed for Saying Homosexuality is Sin For over thousands of years the church has taught that homosexual behavior is a sin. This is spoken of many times in the Bible. “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination” Leviticus 18:22 The secular humanists, homosexual lobby, and other enemies of Christ have worked together to prevent the ancient Word of God from being preached in public. This in the UK where once thousands of missionaries went out all over the world to preach the Word of the Lord. Now, they choose to arrest those who speak that same word. A preacher speaking out against sin was arrested for speaking out against homosexual activity. How soon before this happens here in America? How soon before policical correctness makes criminals out of those who would speak out as part of their First amendment rights? How soon before lawsuits start, followed by police arresting preachers? The UK and the US are Christian nations and we need to remember that, not persecute those who speak that truth; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Graham v. Obama: Preacher's Kid Knocks President Over Islam Stance The Sword of the Lord is the most dangerous weapon the West has in the war against radical Islam. Radical Islam is not compatible with modern life in Western nations. It is oppressive to women. It does not permit women to go to school beyond elementary school, and often not even that much. It does not permit women to drive automobiles. Radical Islam does not even allow women to leave the house unless they are in groups or with a close male relative. Ask your mother, your sister or your wife or daughter to live like that for a week. Oh, and have them mutilate their genitalia too; as required by Radical Islam. Hope that they are not a victim of rape, because they will mean their death for adultery. The Word of Christ brings a God of love to the world. It replaces the submission of Radical Islam with the love of Christ. We are to love one another, we are not to enslave our own wife or mother. Everywhere American troops fight, we should be fighting for freedom, freedom from Radical Islam. Freedom of religion, so that the Word of God can be faithfully preached; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/36981179 Three American high school kids are kicked off of the campus because they were wearing American flag designs on their clothing on Cinco de Mayo. The staff was concerned because their are a large number of Hispanic students at the school and worried that it might cause a fight. There was also a concern it was a sign of "cultural disrespect." Cultural disrespect? To show love of your own nation, inside your own country? If the English want to wear the Union Jack on the Fourth of July, in London, I am okay with that. If the French want to wear the Tricolor in Normandy on American Independence day, that's alright with me. If the Mexicans don't like Americans wearing the American flag in America then too bad for them, no matter what day of the year it is! It is the duty of the school staff to insure the safety of the students at their school. The staff needs to protect the students from those who would attack them. Not send the potential victims home. If then need to call in the police to protect the students, then the police must be called. I seem to recall that in the Eisenhower administration even National Guard and Federal troops were called in to insure students could go to school in safety. Americans should always be free to display our flag, in America; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://pdf.patriotpost.us.s3.amazonaws.com/2010-04-29-alexander.pdf The US Army may be conducting wargames with members of the Tea Parties as the opposition forces. When I was in the Army our opponent was International Communism, primarily the Soviet Union. For much of that time we did not name the Soviet Union as our potential enemy during wargames. We often used fictional nations in the Middle East or Eastern Europe as our potential enemy. Eventually, we did name the Soviet Union in wargames as the potential enemy, but that was in a time when nearly all of our national leadership had spoken publicly about the rivalry between the USSR and the United States and the potential for war between those two nations. I find it very disturbing that an Army exercise would take place that names the political rivals of the sitting administration as the "enemy" forces. Training members of the military that other Americans are the enemy is very disturbing to me. Even if the exercise is about domestic terrorism or domestic unrest, I would think that it would be more realistic to name groups that have carried out domestic terror attacks in the past, rather than name peaceful protesters as the enemy. It would seem to me that if nothing else, they could simply make up a group with imagined grievances against the government to conduct their wargames. Their politics would not effect the military response to civil unrest. Putting down a riot or civil unrest or attempted revolution would be handled the same way on the ground by the troops if the rioters were illegal aliens, environmental extremists, abortion foes, right wing militias, or Muslim extremists. This type of scenario writing, using real, non-violent political opponents of a sitting administration as the enemy in a wargame is unacceptable and un-American; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://clashradio.com/column.html Franklin Graham was invited to participate in the National Day of Prayer at the Pentagon. Later, he was dis-invited because there were complaints that he had called Islam "evil." I think Islam is evil too. I guess that means I won't be going either. Perhaps Osama Bin Ladin could go to the Pentagon and offer a few prayers in the name of Islam. When we look all over the world we find evil being done in the name of Islam. Women are treated like second class citizens. They can't go outdoors without an escort, either other women, or a close male relative. In many nations women are not allowed to even have a drivers license. In fundamentalist Muslim states women who are raped are often executed for having sex outside of marriage. Is the oppression of women a value that we consider proper in this nation? Do we condemn those nations who do not? Do we dare to call that evil? Franklin Graham is a fundamentalist Christian. He does not fail to speak out against that which he considers evil. He considers the oppressive practices of radical Islam to be evil. I do too. I think it is right for all of us to speak out against that which is evil. Our own government should not penalize us for doing that; by bowing to the pressure of the evil ones; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

http://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2010/0422/Flying-car-Dept-of-Defense-OKs-new-Jetsons-like-vehicle Okay, I know what car I want next. DARPA says they want to build a flying SUV for the Army. The flying car is the solution to many of the problems we are faced with today. Cities and states don't have the money to build and maintain roads and bridges. Many areas are so built up that they can't widen existing roads or build new roads without destroying too many homes, schools and businesses. The flying car will relieve the need for new and improved roads for those congested areas. With a range of a couple hundred miles this will allow commutes of up to a hundred miles to allow people to live and work at locations that are much farther apart than is practical today. These vehicles will take off, fly and land without operator control, the machine will fly itself. The pilot can take over if there is an emergency. There are 40,000 people a year killed in traffic collisions here in the US. I imagine a flying car that flies itself could dramatically reduce that number. The economy suffered a loss of billions of dollars every year due to gridlock and slow traffic. There are so many people who are late to work, or products that don't arrive on time because of a lack of vehicle infrastructure. If an American company can make a flying car many of those problems would go away very quickly. Then American companies could hire thousands of people to replace our domestic fleet of cars and light trucks. I want a flying car; it will change the world; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

LEX18 Lexington, KY News, Weather, Sports, Kentucky Guilty Verdict In Palin Hacking Case The prosecution scored a three out of four guilty verdicts in the case of the man who hacked into Sarah Palin's email during the recent election. Naturally, the main stream media tries to soft pedal the whole affair. I read several reports of this story and most of them simply call the suspect a "student." That makes it seem like he is some innocuous high school kid. Rather, he is a twenty-two year old adult. He is old enough to vote, he is old enough to buy alcohol, and unlike his more patriotic betters, he is certain old enough to serve as a soldier in the US Army. Most of the reports are written as if he his simply some kid making a prank. They fail to mention that he is the son of an elected official. The son of a Democrat, who is an elected official. The main stream media lies to us every day. They seldom lie to us directly, they more often lie to us by omission, or by slanting stories so that we feel sympathy for the criminal. In this case we have an excellent example. Much of the media has tried to show the criminal as a victim, saying that he faces up to 50 years in prison for a simple prank. The 22 year old son of a Democrat elected official should know that hacking into the email system of a Republican governor who is running for vice-president is not just a simple prank. Maybe that's what Watergate was after all, a simple prank; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Polanski Breaks Silence Over US Extradition Case - AOL News Roman Polanski was accused of having sex with a thirteen year old girl. They say he drugged her, got her drunk, sodomized her and had raped her. He was convicted of an offense related to the incident and then fled the country before he could be sentenced. There has been a warrant out for his arrest for decades. Despite this he continued to make movies and to be the darling of the Hollywood elites. In nearly every story I read about him, they always tell us what a great movie maker he was during his self imposed exile. Personally, I don't care how good someones movies are, if they are having sex with little girls. Especially, if he is drugging them and having sex with them against their will. The moral decline of Hollywood is such that they don't care about the morality of the people who make movies. They don't care about the morality they depict on the screen. When you have perverts making movies, they make other movies about perverts, because they make movies about what they know; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
