Abortion is Murder

Maryland Abortion Doctors Charged With Murder

Two doctors playing games with abortion law have been arrested after botched abortions were performed just over a year ago. They were crossing state lines to avoid various abortion laws and caused a ruptured uterus and injured bowel on a woman who was having an abortion by them.

The US government does not require reporting on the number of women who have abortions that result in complications, or even death. It is one of the many dirty secrets of the abortion industry and abortion rights groups. They claim that abortion is safe only when it is legal. Abortion is not safe, even if it is legal. At best a baby is killed and the mother has serious physical and psychological trauma.

This abortion clinic was keeping late term aborted fetuses in the freezer; they had 35 of them including at least one that was as old as 36 weeks, which is essentially full term. Somehow I don’t think the proper and most dignified procedure for dealing with dead babies is to stock them up in the freezer. Abortion doctors don’t care about their patients, they have abandoned the Hippocratic Oath and care only about money; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Job Searching

When selecting a candidate in a primary election there are several factors to consider. The first factor is the candidate should fully support the party platform. There is no point in electing politicians who don’t actually believe what the party believes. If you want to do that, vote for the guy from the other party. The next factor is the consistency of the candidate. Past performance is the best predictor of future behavior.

If a candidate was once pro-abortion, why do they now claim to be pro-life? Unless there is a major life changing incident then it may be the candidate has simply changed their position for political purposes. The other part of this is to pin them down on their definitions. A formerly pro-abortion candidate who is now pro-life needs to explain not only why they are now pro-life but exactly what that means to them and what they intend to do about it. A candidate who says they are pro-life but does not believe in imposing their views on others through legislation is not really pro-life.

Another factor to consider is the personal life of the candidate. The candidate should make a reasonable effort to live their life in conformance to their ideals. Certainly none of us is perfect but a presidential candidate who constantly speaks of the need for a strong national defense should be a veteran. A candidate who wants the Christian vote should regularly attend a Christian church with main line Christian beliefs, that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Ban it, Don’t Tax it

Adult Film Condom Proposal Qualifies for June Ballot NBC Los Angeles

The Supreme Court of the United States opened a Pandoras box when they legalized pornography. As usual another step in social decline that was never voted on by the people but was forced upon us by the courts. Now in Los Angeles they want a law that will require adult film stars to wear a condom in pornographic movies.

They want to tax the adult film industry and have them patrolled by regulators who will insure that the actors are wearing condoms when they perform for the camera. They think this will reduce the spread of AIDS among adult film workers. What this will really do is give more revenue and power to the city government and cause most of the adult film industry to move from Los Angeles to other cities that don’t have this requirement.

Apparently there are so few industries in California that actually produce anything they are reduced to regulating the pornographic industry. Rather than regulate it, this is one industry that should simply go away. Fifty years ago we had standards and we did not have the constant bombardment with pornography that we have today. It has been shown to be addictive, harmful to women, and generally degrading to society. Rather than simply taxing it we should ban it; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Let’s Pretend

Girl Scouts' Inclusion Of Bobby Montoya, 7-Year-Old Transgender Child, Prompts Troops To Disband

Children like to pretend. They like to pretend they can fly. They like to pretend they are a dog or a cat. Children like to pretend they are soldiers, or monsters or the mommy or the daddy. When they have difficulty breaking away from that pretend world it is up to the adults to remind them who and what they are in real life. Little Bobby Montoya is a little boy who likes to pretend he is a girl. It is the duty of his parents to remind Bobby that he is not a girl and that he is a boy.

Rather than do their duty, Bobby Montoya is permitted to wear his hair like a girl and dress like a girl and pretend he is a girl all the time. Others are encouraged, even required to buy into his fantasies, his pretend world under the penalty of lawsuits and bad publicity.

Bobby Montoya was allowed to pretend he was a girl and his mother forced the Girl Scouts to take him as a girl. Rather than accept his pretend world, at least two scout leaders have done the right thing and disbanded their scout troops rather than force the real little girls to have to eat, sleep, change clothes with a pretend girl. They are instead joining a group called the Heritage Scouts who uphold the values of the real world and don’t let boys pretend to be girls. I commend those scout leaders for taking leadership in this instance; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Foreign Policy Failure



In yet another stunning foreign policy failure the Obama Administration, President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton have apparently permitted an illegal sale of restricted military technology to go to Communist China. A French company had American technology and sold that technology to the Chinese for us in their space program. The Chinese space program is run by the Communist military. It is illegal for US military technology to be transferred to the Chinese military because of the human rights violations of Communist China.

It can cost billions of dollars and take decades to develop new technologies, particularly military space technology. The two shortcuts to that are to steal it or buy it. The Communist Chinese government has been running computer hacking attacks against American companies trying to steal secrets for some time. Now the State Department has actually been blocking an investigation into the Chinese buying American technology from the French.

We need to realize the Communist Chinese are not our friends. The Communist Chinese are a one party system that oppresses its people, denies them basic human rights and will murder or imprison anyone who challenges that system. Communist China is at best an aggressive competitor and at worst a potential enemy of the United States. President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton seem to have forgotten that; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Democrats & Money


The Main Stream Media likes to portray the Democrats as the party of the little guy, the working man, Joe Lunchpail. Rather for at least the last few years the Democrats have been the party of the lobbyists. They have raised over 30% more money from lobbyists than the Republicans have raised.

They also have a large number of very rich people who give them money. George Soros is probably the most famous example but there are many other millionaires and billions who give cash to the Democrats. The Hollywood elites also provide large sums of money to the Democrats all the while talking about how they represent the common man.

The common man works for a living and identifies himself as a Christian. The common man supports the US military and is straight. He is opposed to homosexual rights but favors gun rights. He wants our nation to be strong and he wants our budget in order. Very little of that sounds like the Democrats; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

There are several things the United States can do to bring about a recovery and make us a stronger nation. Give scholarships to students who study subjects America needs. Engineers, computer technicians, nurses, doctors, and other technical subjects are needed by the United States. Stop providing subsidies for lawyers, diversity studies, and other college subjects that only provide a drag on the economy. Turn 50% of our law schools in to medical schools, bring down the cost of medicine and cut the number of frivolous lawsuits.

Increase the size of our National Guard and military Reserves. We need a strong national defense but don’t need a huge standing army. The military can be in readiness with strong reserve forces and they are much cheaper than a large standing army. We need to loan money for businesses to expand and repeal laws the hamper expansion. In California the state requires each supervisor to have two hours of sexual harassment training every year, what a foolish waste of time and money. I suspect the Chinese and Japanese don’t require that, and they don’t have 12% unemployment either.

We need to consider a tariff on all goods imported from Communist nations and Islamic nations that deny their people freedom of religion. That is a basic human right and we should not permit that to go on without some response. Why not save some American jobs and generate revenue at the same time? We also need to develop nuclear power, it is safe and clean, new plants don’t have the meltdown problems we saw at Chernobyl or Japan. We also need to drill and refine more oil in this nation and off shore. We need to build new oil refineries too, not just continue to expand existing facilities. Many of our problems we have brought on ourselves and so many of them we can fix ourselves; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Flat & Fair Taxes

>> Read more on the payroll tax at heritageaction.com.

God wants you to tithe ten percent of your income no matter how much or how little you make. If you make a lot, he wants you to give more according to your ability. The Federal Government can’t decide how much you should pay. They want you to pay more or less of a percentage of your income based on how much money you make. But they want to tamper with that system so that if you invest in politically connected or politically correct investments, they will cut your tax burden and so the rich in many cases will pay less than the poor.

We need a flat tax, one where everyone pays the same amount on all their income. Rent, wages, investments, capital gains, everything should be taxed at the same rate with few or no deductions and everyone should have to pay something. The poor get the benefits of national defense, and law enforcement and they should have to pay something for it too. They will have more of a stake in how our taxes are spent if they also have to pay taxes.

I would eliminate all the deductions for just about everything. Deductions are simply a way for the government to perform social engineering by subsidizing things that are politically connected. Why should renters subsidize those who have enough money to pay for a mortgage? Why should the rich get all kinds of deductions the poor can never get? The Congress needs to radically simplify and reform our tax system, that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Internet Freedom


Knowledge is power, and the Internet provides a great amount of power to the individual. Repressive communist and Islamic governments all over the world want to censor and regulate the Internet. Other governments want to tax the Internet. They see that there are two billion people on line with a half a million more added every day.

With numbers like that, they know that even a dollar per user per year could put a lot of money in the pockets of government. Imagine having to pay a nickel for every email or a penny for every web search to the United Nations to distribute as they see fit. Think about having to pay a dime in tax every time you click on a website in Communist China and what they could do with a few hundred million dollars. Even some states like California have tried to tax Internet sales.

Television is heavily regulated all over the world because it used the public airwaves. As a result in some nations there is little or no television at all and much of it is heavily controlled by the government. Is that what we want from the Internet? Official news from official sources only and a heavy tax burden on top of that? The power to tax is the power to destroy. Government regulation of the Internet will only lesson our choices and destroy our ability to gather and exchange information; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Guns at the Post Office

Please consider chipping in a generous contribution to help win this case.

The US Postal Service is going broke but they still have enough money left to us to infringe on your right to keep and bear arms. The US Postal Service says that you can’t carry a gun when you visit the post office, even if you have a concealed weapons permit. They say you can’t even leave your gun in the parking lot while you go inside and transact your business. That’s outrageous.

The right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Unless you go to the post office to mail a letter, pick up a package or buy some stamps. Then you need to keep your guns at home. You can’t go to the gun store, buy a gun keep it in your trunk and then stop off at the post office, because that would be wrong; according to the post office.

The Post Office has no authority to prevent you from carrying a gun to the post office, if you are carrying a concealed weapon it is no business of theirs. The whole point of the right to keep and bear arms is that you can bear them, that is, that you can carry a gun around with you in places open to the public. The post office is not a secure facility like an airport or Federal Office building where armed guards are there to protect you. It is an open facility where any criminal or crazy person could walk in and start robbing or shooting, they will disregard any little sign on the wall that prevents the carrying of firearms, leaving only the honest, law abiding people disarmed; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Al Who?

Timbuktu: Foreigners Kidnapped, Murdered

Kidnappers kidnapped foreigners in Timbuktu. Murderers murdered foreigners in Timbuktu. For eighteen paragraphs this article tells us how foreigners are being murdered by murderers and kidnapped by kidnappers. They spend a lot of time telling use they are harmless tourists and that they are European.

It takes them eighteen paragraphs to get around to telling us the kidnappers and murders are from Al-Qaida. They never actually indicate they are Radical Muslims. Certainly we would not want to offend Radical Muslims by writing articles that associate them with kidnapping and murder, that would be Islamophobic.

This is why so many people in the West are ill informed and don’t think we are in a war against Radical Islam. The main stream media worries too much about offending the enemy. How much did we worry about offending Hitler in WWII? We are at war with Radical Muslims. The Radical Muslims kidnap innocent tourists. Radical Muslims murder innocent tourists. This was not an accident. It was not an isolated incident. This was not because the victims did anything wrong. It is not George Bush’s fault, it is not because we did not build enough orphanages or schools or hospitals in the Third World. It is because Radical Islam is evil and they are at war with the West; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Packers' Walden arrested on suspicion of battery - NFL - Sporting News

A professional football player has been arrested for battery against his live in girlfriend. The league is not sure what they will do about it. I have an idea; immediate suspension, without pay until his case is adjudicated. If convicted give him a lifetime ban him from professional football in any capacity.

I have an even better idea. How about suspend him for as long as he is living in sin with his live-in girlfriend? Professional sports players used to have morality clauses in their contracts that prohibited them from doing anything immoral or embarrassing to the sport. Living with a girlfriend without benefit of clergy is immoral and should merit a suspension until 30 games after it stops. That might reduce the opportunities that players have to beat their girlfriends.

Where are the liberals on this? There is no excuse for domestic violence, so why do the main stream media tolerate it with sports stars? Did anyone believe that OJ was looking for the real killers? Certainly not, but the media continued to give him positive play until he finally went to prison. Don’t have sex with any man unless he marries you first. Following that advice would keep a lot of women out of a lot of trouble; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

My Job

Workplace Religious Discrimination Complaints Double Over 10 Years

If I own a company and I hire people to work for me, it is my job. It does not belong to the employee. It does not belong to the government, it is my job. If I want to have everyone work next Tuesday then that should be up to me to determine, not the government. If I want everyone to be off on Christmas Day and work on Easter Day then that should be up to me, not some judge.

We wonder why companies move to other states or other companies. We wonder why companies won’t hire anyone even if they are sitting on a pile of cash. We wonder why businessmen say that the government interferes too much with business. Then we permit lawsuits for religious discrimination. The lawyers for these lawsuits say the issue is so complicated that each case has to be handled individually. How can the average owner of a dry cleaning business be expected to know how to avoid religious discrimination if lawyers are not even sure of the law? Yet these lawsuits and the fear of lawsuits cost companies millions of dollars wasted that could go to making them more competitive or more profitable.

If a barbershop wants to hire all Muslims to cut hair that should be their right. If a grocery store expects everyone to work Christmas Day, then they should be permitted to do that. If a company does not want women to wear a headscarf at work then that should be up to the company to set their dress code. If I don’t want my employees to wear beards then Amish need not apply. Private business is just that, private. The government should not interfere with private decisions taken by employers about who they hire, who they fire, how they schedule, who they train, that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

China & Protectionism


Communist China is still a repressive state controlled nation. We forget that they don’t have freedoms we take for granted here in America. They have some economic freedom but they still have a one political party system. They still have a government owned and controlled media and they still don’t have freedom of religion.

As a result the Communist State uses organs of the State to carry out State policy. Recently the Chinese have been sending signals to America not to buy American. They don’t want to lose the economic power they have over the United States. The Chinese are now using their State owned and controlled media to attack American companies doing business in China.

Some American businesses like WalMart out-compete their Chinese rivals. As a result, the State controlled Communist Chinese media is taking minor violations of local law and blowing them up into major incidents. The United States needs to press China to continue to reform. They Communist party needs to share power with other parties allow religious freedom and divest themselves of the press and permit a free press; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Moving to China

Mary Bach, Consumer Activist, Wins Lawsuit Against Walmart -- Over 2 Cents

This is exactly why so many businesses move to other countries. A woman went to Walmart and purchased a product that scanned for a cent more than the posted price. The checker realized the error and offered her the correct price. The woman refused and rather than take her penny refund she went to court. In any rational world the judge would have tossed her a penny and told her to get out.

Rather, the judge issued her a judgment and Walmart had to pay here money. She has sued Walmart many times and won. Each time it has been over some petty trivial incident like this one. No individual, let alone a giant corporation with tens of thousands of employees and millions of products for sale can be error free. It is simply impossible. So this woman makes her living by suing companies over the most trivial mistake under the guise of being a consumer activist. Perhaps remembering that we should do unto others as we would have them do unto us would be a good idea. A little Christian charity goes a long way towards making up for a small error here or there.

The reality is that these nuisance lawsuits do not help consumers. Walmart probably spent tens of thousands of dollars on executive time and lawyers trying to defend this lawsuit. Every dime of that money means higher prices for the consumer. Every dime wasted on lawsuits over a penny mean that Walmart is pushed towards moving out of that state and moving other operations to other countries. This is simply how that woman makes a living and the media puts the happy face on it by calling her a consumer advocate. Well she does not speak for me; here at the Hysterical Right Wing.

Alabama Leads the Nation

Janet MurguĂ­a: A Lot More Than Just Angst In Alabama

The state of Alabama has passed a reasonable bill aimed at removing illegal aliens from the state of Alabama. Despite the claims illegal rights groups this new law will cost very little in time or money for the state and will pay back benefits many times the initial costs. Every illegal alien school child taken out of school will provide more teaching time for children who belong in this country.

Every illegal alien who is arrested and deported is one more person who will not be using the scare resources of Alabama. They won’t be using gasoline, fresh water, and government services or holding a job that should be done by a person legally residing in Alabama. At a time of over 9% unemployment, even low paying jobs are welcome and better than long term unemployment. Most of the opponents to this law play the race card and complain that it is motivated by racism. They propose no other effective solutions to the problem of illegal immigration but rather expose open borders, even reconquista and giving large tracts of land to Mexico.

The citizens of Alabama are endangered every day by criminal illegal aliens who rob, rape and murder citizens of the United States. Every one of them who is deported makes this a safer place to live. Some teachers don’t like this law because they fear that their jobs will be cut if thousands of illegal aliens are forced out of the state. Some police chiefs don’t like this law either. That’s because they worry more about the rights of people who don’t even belong here than they do about the rights of Americans to secure their borders, provide services to citizens, and for people to be safe in their communities; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Divide and Conquer



President Obama seeks to divide America. The failed presidency of President Obama wants to make up for a lack of positive initiates and successes by dividing Americans into tiny demographics and then playing them one against another. The President can’t point to anything he has done to make this a better nation for all Americans, so he will point to failures, play them as success to specific demographics that may vary from the main stream on that one point.

He will tell homosexuals that he has ended the era of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. He knows that will not sit well with mainstream Americans, or veterans. Many Black Americans don’t accept homosexual behavior. So President Obama will tell Black Americans that he is one of them and he is working hard for them in the way a white Republican president will not.

President Obama will tell liberals he has withdrawn American troops from Iraq. He can’t claim victory, because the war is ongoing. President Obama will tell the youth that he wants to spend billions of dollars on a jobs bill and tax the rich to pay for it. He will leave out that he spent hundreds of billions and failed to stimulate the economy, bailed out Wall Street and Detroit automakers. Toss each little group a tidbit and hope they will be happy with that; that’s the Obama campaign for 2012; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Change Without Progress


I like progress, but I don’t like change. If something is changing for the better, I am all for it, if it is just change for the sake of change, or if it is getting worse, I don’t like it. This article suggests several changes in our future and I think he is right about a number of them. The Post Office may be going away, and I am okay with that. Private companies should be allowed to carry first class mail, but they should be required to deliver Monday through Saturday and to every address in the nation as the Postal Service does now. Checks are going away, I believe this one too. I buy a lot of things on line and pay many of my bills on line. It saves the hassle of getting a stamp and all that. It’s automatic and free; those paper checks don’t write themselves.

The newspaper may go away; I think it will simply become fully electronic. I blog three blogs everyday, I don’t print them. I have readers all over the world; they would be hard pressed to get a printed copy of this every day from California in Japan, Poland, or New Zealand. Lots of newspapers already publish on line and many magazines have had paper editions go away.

Book are soon to follow, at least for most books I think this is true. Mrs. Bunkermeister has a Kindle and she loves it. As they become more capable it will be harder to avoid the electronic reader. I still love books for taking notes, and having ten of them spread out on my desk as one time but maybe someday we will all own five or ten e-readers. The land line phone is going too, I have Internet phone and the wife has a cell phone. It’s too expensive to put up more lines; many developing areas will never have land line phones.

Music, television, DVDs are all going away. I agree it will all be cloud computing. All our electronic music, movies, television shows will be seamlessly kept in the great computers in the sky. I think this will mean many in music, and television and the movies will have to take smaller salaries and smaller royalties. I also worry about big brother making specific content unavailable or altering it to appease the political correctness of the day. Just as you don’t own Kindle content, you just are licensed to read it and the license can be revoked or the content changed at any time without warning. The author of the article bemoans the loss of privacy too, but I think it is an overrated illusion anyway. Two hundred years ago we all lived in small farms and villages and everyone knew everyone and everything you did was common knowledge then. Now the village is electronic and worldwide; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Free Trade, Fair Trade

I believe in freedom. If I want to buy some consumer goods from China, I should be free to do just that. If I want to sell consumer goods in China, I should be free to do just that. If I want to make consumer goods in China and sell them in the United States, I should be free to do that. If I want to make consumer goods in the United States and sell them in China I should be free to do that.

The government should not subsidize my manufacturing of consumer goods in either country. There should not be tariffs against the importation or exportation of consumer goods from or to either country. The currency transfer, taxes and labor laws, environment laws, trademarks, copyright, trade secrets and other laws should be similar.

Just as the fifty states have somewhat different rules I would expect the US and China to have some variation in the rules too. In general they should be quite similar.

If they have a 25% tariff on an imported consumer product than we should have a similar tariff, in the say, 20% to 30% range. If they lower their tariff, we should lower ours. If they raise their tariff then we should raise ours. Free trade is a good basis in understanding between free peoples. When one side manipulates their currency, restricts imports, restricts consumer sales, violates copyrights, trade secrets and trade marks, as Communist China does to the United States, then trade is neither fair nor free. We are in a trade war with Communist China, but the American side is not fighting back. We need to develop a trade policy now to eliminate our trade deficit with China by either selling them more consumer products or reducing the importation of Chinese products to the United States; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Hormuz is Closed

Top signage Iran will use when they close the Strait of Hormuz:
1. Closed due to wet paint.
2. Closed due to construction.
3. Closed for the holidays.
4. Closed due to new management.
5. Closed for termite abatement.
6. Closed for lunch.
7. Closed for siesta.
8. Closed due to retirement.
9. Closed due to going out of business.
10. Closed due moved, no forwarding address.
Any of these would be as valid as any excuse they would use; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

JSDF, its Not Just Godzilla



The Communist Chinese are raising their defense spending over 10% in the next year. Japan has been consistently cutting defense spending for the last decade. North Korea is testing new missile systems and is probably building nuclear weapons. Both Communist China and Communist North Korea have threatened Japanese interests in recent years.

The Japanese are in need of new fighter planes. President Obama should be urging them to buy American fighters to replace their aging fleet of planes. The Japanese have also been trying to upgrade their fleet as well. Perhaps they could purchase a new or even used American aircraft carrier.

Closer defense ties with Japan are essential. The United States and Japan have been traditional partners since Japan opened to international trade in the late 1800’s. Only a few years before and during World War Two have the US and Japan been at odds. We need to work harder to have closer military and trade relationships with Japan. Their interests are our interests in the new Asia; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Muslim Christmas

Muslim Christmas Celebrations Recognize Jesus In Islam

Islam tries to put on the happy face and claim that they too recognize Jesus as a prophet. They like to point out that they accept the Old and New Testaments as holy books. That’s all true, as far as it goes. The problem is they don’t accept Jesus as the Son of God here on Earth. Jesus said he was the Messiah and that he was the Son of God. Scripture also teaches that a prophet must be correct in every prophecy or he is not a prophet sent by God.

If Jesus is the Son of God then he is not just a good man or a prophet. He is God incarnate. If people say they revere Jesus as a prophet but not as the Son of God then they are denying the very nature of who Jesus said he was; he is either the Son of God or a liar or a crazy person. If he is a liar then he is no prophet. If he is no prophet then we have no reason to revere or worship him. If he was a crazy person, then he is also no prophet and we still have no reason to revere or worship him. If he is lying about who he is then we should not worship a liar.

Jesus is the Son of God. He is the Christ, one part of the Trinity. He is both man and God. If we call him less then we are denying his own teachings. A religion that says one of their prophets is a liar does not seem to me to be an internally consistent religion. Islam says many things that contradict the teachings of Christ. Islam does not worship the God of the Christians because they deny the divinity of Christ, no matter how many Christmas celebrations they have; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Christian Persecution


A Christian family with a large property has been fined twice by the City of San Juan Capistrano for holding meetings in their home that exceed fifty people. They claim the couple needs to have a conditional use permit if they are going to have ongoing meetings at their home. The family is holding a Bible study. They are not a church; they are not taking up a collection.

They meet twice a week to discuss the Bible. Christians have held meetings in private homes since the earliest days of the Christian faith. The city of San Juan Capistrano was founded by Roman Catholic priests and is the home of the oldest building in California, a Catholic chapel. It is ironic that now that city is using its power to persecute Christians for having friends over to pray and study the Word of God.

A conditional use permit does not simply entail filling out a couple forms and paying a couple hundred dollars. It requires studies; approvals and can cost tens of thousands of dollars as well as be denied by the city. They may also require structural changes in the home and property that could also cost tens of thousands of dollars. The city should not be determining who can visit a private home. Unless there is loud noise, public drinking, fighting and other criminal acts, people should be allowed to study the Bible in a private home, on a regular basis, even if a few of the neighbors don’t like it, that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Buy American


My doctor says I have to try to stay out of the sun. As a part of my sun avoidance program, Mrs. Bunkermeister and I went to a local shop to buy me a couple hats. Seeing how I am a Western lawman, I opted for a cowboy hat as my first choice. Right there on the red, white and blue little tag was “Made in the USA.” The hat was a Stetson and I purchased that for business casual use.

I also wanted a more casual hat, perhaps a boonie hat or something similar. The store had olive drab and Army camouflage boonie hats. They even had the tags as found on military issue hats for size and care instructions. Only by looking at the underside of one of the tags was it clear the hat was made in Sri Lanka. I checked out many other hats and many of them implied they were made in the USA but were in fact made in Communist China or Sri Lanka or the Dominican Republic.

One of the hats even had the name of the company and “USA” in the logo, giving the impression that this foreign made hat was American made. I think one thing we might do that would cost very little is require every product to be clearly labeled with the nation of origin in large letters near the logo of the company. I think that nations that are Communist or that enforce Sharia Law should have that on the label too. Making it easier to buy American would help us to support each other in this time of economic crisis; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Make a Crisis


The leader of a major union gave a speech recently. During the speech he said that the people need to take their pain and suffering caused by the economic crisis to the rich people. His speech is very much like the information being put out by the Occupy Wall Street people. It is no coincidence that his union also supports OWS.

I think the OWS protests were planned months before they happened. I think they were planned to coincide with the Republican primary season. That way they can deflect the news coverage from the Republican attacks on the failed polices of President Obama. I think in some ways it has backfired because so many of the OWS are so radical they even make President Obama seem moderate. These people are generally the same anti-war, anti-business, anti-American protestors that show up at the WTO, G-20 and any other establishment meeting.

The OWS protesters have actually been few in number; they were talking about 4,000 protesting in Oakland on November 3rd, the day of the general strike. This is the same city that gets 30,000 people to turn out for a football game. I think the OWS has been a failure in that they have not captured the imagination of the American people, they have put out a confusing message, and they have essentially accomplished nothing. With winter coming I suspect there will be few of them in place in a few weeks; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Trade Deficit

The Communist Chinese sold Americans more than $273 billion in 2010 than the Chinese bought from America. There are many reasons for this imbalance. The Chinese have a tariff on everything they import from the USA that is much higher than the tariffs on Chinese good imported to the US. We should immediately match their higher tariffs.

The Chinese steal intellectual properties and the authorities do little to prevent it. The US government needs to take a more active role in prosecuting Chinese businessmen who steal or coerce intellectual properties from American companies. The US government should also begin targeting Chinese companies for espionage by American clandestine forces.

The Chinese also don’t provide their own people with the economic freedom to buy American products. American companies should be opening shopping centers, supermarkets, car dealerships, insurance companies in China to permit the Chinese consumer to buy American products. We need to limit Chinese investment here until they permit more freedom for their own people to buy American products; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Free Speech, Unless We Disagree


The Israeli Ambassador to the United States was invited to give a speech to a group of students at the University of California, Irvine. During the speech and group of Muslim students planned to disrupt his speech by shouting out during the event. After they implemented their plan to prevent his speech they were arrested.

Universities always like to talk a good game about freedom of expression, but when it comes to expression they don’t like then they do more than protest, they take action to prevent the speech from happening. In this case an ambassador from a foreign nation was invited to speak and he was shouted down by pro-Palestinian protestors who did not want an Israeli to speak in public.

If they wanted to protest they could have carried signs and marched in front of the venue. They could have asked pertinent but difficult questions during the planned question and answer period. They could have scheduled their own speaker to talk about events from their point of view. Rather, they choose to be rude and disruptive to a guest and one who represents a foreign nation in this country, an important ally to the United States. People who hire a hall have a right to hear the speaker they arranged to hear, without disruption from third parties; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Cut Spending


President Obama keeps telling us that we need to tax the rich and to increase spending. President Obama also keeps redefining what he things rich is, sometimes it’s people who make a million dollars and sometimes it’s people who make a couple hundred thousand dollars a year.

The fact is we all pay too much in taxes now. Why should we thing that the Federal Government will do a better job of spending money that rich people will? Rich people don’t just earn money and then put it under their mattress. Rich people spend money that in turn employs people. They buy a car and the car dealer makes money. They remodel their house, they buy clothing, jewelry, they throw parties and all this economic activity provides jobs for people who provide those goods and services.

If the government taxes those rich people then politicians will determine where that money goes. Do you really think they will do a better job of distributing that wealth? The government can’t give you money unless they take it from someone who has earned it. We need to create more opportunities for people to earn money in the private sector. Eliminate government regulations that make it hard for small businesses to operate. Simplify the tax laws so businesses can operate easier. If tax laws are simpler than there are fewer places for the rich to hide their money and they will pay their fair share of taxes; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Gibson Guitars


Gibson Guitars has been in business for decades making specialized guitars used by artists all over the world. Unlike many businesses, they are creating high quality American jobs creating value added products. Jobs like this are exactly what America needs to keep the economy strong.

The Federal Government has claimed that Gibson has illegally imported some wood from India. They raided the Gibson guitar facility and seized a million dollars worth of wood and stopped production of guitars. The Federal Government may even consider people who have a Gibson guitar may be in violation of the law.

Gibson says the transactions were legal and the wood was imported properly. President Obama is moving about the country trying to get people to create jobs while his Justice Department is putting people out of work. With all the violence, drugs, and terrorism is tracking down wood imports the best use of Federal law enforcement authorities? It seems to me the Justice Department could have handled this much better; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

King of Communism


Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was opposed to the War in Vietnam. Two of his close advisors were members of the Communist Party, USA. The same Communist Party that took money from the Soviet Union. The same Soviet Union that was providing weapons and advice to the Vietnamese Communists.

When a monument to Dr. King was constructed, it was carved by a Chinese sculptor from granite from China. We have plenty of excellent artists here in the United States and plenty of excellent granite. It is a disgrace that money in China on this monument. It is also a shame that we are spending money on a man who was giving support to our enemies during a time of war.

While Dr. King worked for civil rights for Black Americans, he was undercutting the efforts of patriotic Black American heroes who were fighting and dying in a war against Communists in Vietnam. There were many other choices for Black Americans but since too few American know our history they put up a statue to a man who does not deserve it; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
