Fair Sex


In political talk I think it is important to speak about one another with dignity and respect.  Whenever I write about the present occupant of the Oval Office I refer to him as the President or President Obama.  I never use any of the other terms I hear some conservatives use about the President.  I think we owe him respect due to the office he holds.  When I was in the Army we had a saying, "You salute the rank, not the individual."  I think that is a very important lesson for all conservatives to remember.

I find it appalling when I read about some of the terrible things that liberals say about conservatives, especially female conservatives.  They are brutalized by words that attack them for a lack of sexual credentials that apparently one can only posses if they are liberal.

I have found many conservatives to be intolerant.  Usually their intolerance comes from religious values that they refuse to compromise.  For example, abortion is a sin, therefore I cannot tolerate this behavior.  Liberal intolerance is directed at women because to be female in America means you must be liberal.  According to liberals only liberals can address women's issues.  To be an American woman you must be pro-abortion, anti-gun, pro-welfare, and in favor of homosexual rights, same sex marriage and high taxes on the rich; according to the liberals.  Liberals are all about diversity, except diversity of opinion; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Guns or Votes?

 
The Constitution says people have the right to keep and bear arms.  It also says the people have a right to vote in elections.  Liberals want people who buy guns to have to show identification, such as a driver license or government identification.  Liberals think that requiring people to show a driver license or government identification to vote is racist and illegal.
 
Liberals want people to buy guns to have to sit through a waiting period, three days, five days, ten working days or more.  Liberals think that voters should be able to register to vote and vote at the same time, without having to register in advance.  Liberals think that guns should be registered, but voters should not be registered.
 
Liberals think that voting should not require any particular qualification to avoid even the most casual requirements to vote, even lowering the age to vote from 21 to 18 in many races.  Liberals think that people who want to own guns should be fingerprinted, have background checks, be limited in the number of guns they can own, demand guns be stored in a certain manner and so on ad infinitum.  I think if you can be trusted to vote you should be trusted to buy a gun and the requirements for each should be pretty much identical, strict or liberal.  It's the right to keep and bear arms that protects the right to vote, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Drones

The US military is using many new drones to replace and supplement manned aircraft.  Robots are replacing humans in many military missions, both on the ground and in the air.  Some of them have weapons and others only carry sensors.
Drones alone are neither good nor evil. We need the Congress to develop some guidelines for the use of drones.  Then they need to pass a bill, have it signed into law by the President to give some guidance to civilian, law enforcement and military drone users in the USA and overseas.
This would be a good topic for discussion in this election year.  There are many drones that are just about to be fielded or are just beginning to be used.  I have little concern for drone use overseas to spy on or attack America's enemies.  I am more concerned about drone use here in the USA to spy on Americans.  Unlike a police helicopter a drone can stay on station for hours, days, and perhaps even weeks and months.  I think any use of drones to spy on American citizens that would exceed the ability of a manned helicopter should require a judge to approve of the use of the drone.  I think on going surveillance by a drone should be reviewed periodically by a judge once it has begun, perhaps weekly, but at least monthly; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Doom & Gloom

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon%E2%80%93Ehrlich_wager

Back in the late 1960's a book was published that predicted doom and gloom for the human race.  Population was spinning out of control and we were all going to die of starvation, in the cold, in the dark.  The only way out was of course, huge government programs.  Raise taxes, restrict human liberties, cut back on freedom.

An economist bet the author that the author could pick any five commodities and that in terms adjusted for inflation the actual prices would go down over the next ten years.  Sure enough, they did.  No doom.  No gloom.  Things were actually better for the world's population, without all the huge spending and government programs.

Free markets work fine to adjust behavior.  If gasoline is expensive enough, people will ride buses, use electric cars, walk to work, ride a bicycle.  If not, they drive.  Let free markets work and people will in the long run figure out what is best for them in individually, and that will solve the problem for the most people; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

France

http://www.wimp.com/missinghusband/

Often those of us in the right wing complain about the French.  To us, most Frenchmen seem leftist, and anti-American.  Often, ungrateful for what the USA did for France in both WWI and WWII.  That is true about many in France.  It is not true about everyone in France.

Many French people remember what the USA did for them in two World Wars.  Many of them share the same values as Americans.  Many Frenchmen are good people who work hard and don't want to live under repression of the right or the left.

France helped us gain our independence from Britain during the Revolutionary War.  They provided the Colonies with naval forces to offset the British navy, and they provided troops, money and equipment too.  Until the middle of WWII the US was very close to France.  I hope that we can remember our common heritage and work together in the future to fight radical Islam, economic disasters, and Chinese Communism.  We face many threats together and together we can win against them as we did in the Revolution, and two World Wars; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Abortion is Murder

http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/duke/120221

Abortion is murder.  If the baby was conceived by a 15 year old girl then in that case, an abortion is murder.  If the fetus is going to be born with a grave genetic disease, then in that case, abortion is murder.  In the event the fetus is the result of the rape of the mother, than it that case, abortion is murder.

Human life begins at conception, everything else from that point forward is simply development.  Technology allows us to keep children alive who are born as small as 8.6 ounces, just over one half of a pound!  Babies as new as 23 weeks routinely survive now, out of 37 weeks for a normal baby.  Who knows how far further innovation will take us?

If a child gets pregnant she should have the baby, and in most cases, give it up for adoption.  There is a shortage of babies to adopt and the pregnant girl will feel better that she did not have to kill her baby.  People with grave diseases are humans with the same right to life as the rest of us, and so an abortion for a disabled baby is not appropriate.  Having an abortion after a rape is like killing an innocent bystander to the crime.  Certainly the victim should be permitted to give the child up for adoption if she wants, but having her kill her child only makes a second victim of this terrible crime of violence.  Man was made in the image of God and it is murder to destroy innocent images of God; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Free Speech

 
The people of the left are always for free speech, unless it is speech they don't want to hear.  Prominent leftist have rushed to say that Rush Limbaugh should be taken off the air.  They don't understand that American freedom permits speech, even speech that is cruel, hateful, mean, foolish or just plain wrong.  It is especially true of political speech. 
 
Rush Limbaugh does a radio show that is primarily political speech.  It is uniquely protected by the First Amendment to the Constitution.  He or the companies that employ him should not lose their licenses because certain people don't like his speech. 
 
I believe if they don't like what he says then they should complain to him, the company he works for, and the companies that advertise on his program.  They too have a right to free speech, just as he does; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Home School

http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/exclusive-homeschooling-families-cant-teach-homosexuality-a-sin-in-class-sa

In Canada the state is requiring people who home school their children to accept homosexual behavior as normal and proper.  The state has given in to the homosexual lobby and is indoctrinating children to believe that something Western culture has said is sinful is now proper, and acceptable.  One of the reasons that parents select homeschooling is that they don't believe the government schools teach the type of values that reflect the values the parents have for their children.

Now the state is reaching into the home to tell parents they must not teach their home schooled children that homosexuality is wrong.  Those parents must violate their moral beliefs.  The state has over stepped it's boundaries.  Homeschooling regulations should only cover those subjects that are necessary for a child's education, math, science, reading and similar topics.

Values education is the realm of the parents and should not be mandated by the state.  In California the schools are teaching the homosexual behavior is normal and acceptable.  In some states the Catholic Church may not participate in adoptions because they won't place children in homosexual households.  The Federal Government is violating their own Defense of Marriage Act and permitting homosexuals to marry on military bases.  Homosexual behavior is a sexual sin.  No different from cheating on your spouse, or having sex with children.  It is morally wrong and should not be taught in the public schools, and certainly not required in home schools; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Manpower

Unless the enemy attacks you and declares war there is always some doubt about when an enemy is about to attack.  We saw that doubt with Iraq and with Afghanistan.  Both wars were necessary, both wars were fought half hearted and so they have dragged on for a decade.  The US military knows how to fight wars and how to win wars.

You win a war by mobilizing your nation, making a declaration of war and sending an overwhelming number of men to fight the war.  Men, not women should fight our wars.  We need to be serious when we fight a war.  Political correctness, social engineering have no place in the military forces.  We need to keep women out of combat and homosexuals out of the military.

There is no one who can claim that the military forces of the nation will be more effective because they have women in combat roles or homosexuals serving openly in the armed forces.  This nation faces many threats and it is the duty of the military to save the nation from attack.  They cannot do that unless we provide them the proper manpower to do the job; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Deserter

 
In 1984 a man deserted the US Air Force and went to Sweden.  He works for the Swedish government and now he wants to come home. I think he should be arrested and prosecuted.  He swore an oath to this country and now he wants to simply forget that oath and come back.  I was in the US Army Reserve in 1984 and I remember there was concern that we would have a war with the Soviet Union back then.  Cold War tensions were high. Still, most of us did our duty.
 
If someone was a conscientious objector they could come forward and they could be transferred to a non-combat position or even be discharged in some cases.  This man did not do that, he simply ran away.  Actions have consequences and since he ran away from his duty he needs to be punished.  He did not think about his family, his friends, his community or his nation, he simply ran away.
 
Thousands of Americans died in the Cold War.  Men in training accidents, men on patrol, at least two nuclear submarine crews died in the Atlantic, men shot down in spy planes, soldiers patrolling the Korean border and many others did their duty and gave their last full measure of devotion.  This man ran away and he should not be pardoned, or forgiven without payment in full being made; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Rich Get Richer!

 
The richest 1% of Americans have gotten richer in recent years.  I think that is great news.  I am not one of them, but I don't begrudge the success of other people.  When the rich get richer I am happy that they are doing well financially. I think we need to do more to help the average American get rich too.  I don't view the economy as a closed system.  If you get rich there is less for me.  I think the system is open and if you get rich, maybe I can get rich too. 
 
The government spends too much money.  So they tax too much, and borrow too much.  That means interest rates go up, money gets hard to get and we have less disposable income to invest or spend.  We need to drastically cut govenment spending.  All government employees should immediately go on Social Security as their sole retirement system.  All government employees includes elected officials.  The Department of Energy, the Department of Education, the Department of Housing and Urban Development should be abolished immediately.
 
God asks for a tithe of 10% of your income.  I think the US government should have an income tax of 10% and an import duty of 10% on all imported goods, with no deductions.  I think there should be an additional import duty of 10% on all goods that are imported from nations that deny basic liberties to their own people.  There should be a 10% tax on all estates over a million dollars, adjusted annually for inflation.  Everyone should enjoy economic liberty, firearms freedom, religious freedom and when we import goods from nations like Saudi Arabia that denies religious freedom, or China that denies free speach, or the UK that denies firearms freedom, then we are encouraging their oppressive behaviors.

No Second Term


http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/debtlimit.asp

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better."
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006


When Barack Obama was a US Senator he considered raising the debt ceiling to be a sign of failure.  Once he became President, he suddenly embraced rasing the debt ceiling and has spent huge amounts of money.  He has wasted money on bailouts for Wall Street and for the auto industry.  We have laws the permit bankruptcy, and those companies should have gone bankrupt.  They would have reemerged from bankruptcy with smaller debt, new contracts, and no federally backed debt.  They also would have been smaller companies with less political clout.

The Democrats wanted to appease the big unions so they bailed out these companies.  They also failed to pay the debts that the companies owed, again we have bankruptcy courts to deal with these problems.  President Obama has been unable to significantly bring down the unemployment rate in this nation.  He has also created trillions of dollars of more debt.  All this while doing things he condemned when he was a Senator.  President Obama does not deserve re-election; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Radical Islam

US soldier refused service at Muslim-owned Texaco station


Why are Muslims even in America? They are in America because it is a Muslim tactic to take over lands by infiltration, by moving there and taking over from the inside; they are doing it all over Western Europe.

Remember all those places in the Bible where St. Paul wrote letters to Christian churches? Those places are all Muslim lands now. That's what the Crusades were really about, taking back lands that had been taken over by Muslims from Christians. History and the news have been distorted so we as a people don't know that. Instead we are told Islam is a religion of peace. That is false. Islam has generally been spread by the sword or by infiltrators working from within a nation to bring about it's downfall.

Muslims are not supposed to live in non-Muslim lands unless they are making money for Islam, learning skills they can't get in Islamic nations, or working to infiltrate and destroy the nation from within. There are plenty of websites that are run by Muslims that explain this, I was on one a few months ago that spoke of Muslims who live in India have a duty to overthrow the government of India because they are a Hindu nation. Radical Islam is a continuing danger to this nation; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

California Lottery

 
A man won the California lottery and is supposed to get $70,000 a year for the next twenty years, and yet, he still hangs out with auto thieves.  Some things like drinking alcohol, smoking, and gambling are adult activities that should be legal, but highly regulated, and only for adults.  As a result, the state should not be encouraging gambling.
 
The lottery was sold in California as a way to solve the problems in the state school system.  We were told the schools were desperate for money and that the lottery would solve their money problems. Now years later and the schools are crying that they don't have any money anyway.  By using a lottery to fund the schools we allow the state legislature to avoid having to make important decisions on where the money needs to go in times of hardship. 
 
We also send the message to kids that gambling is a good thing and it helps the community.  Gambling is addictive to many people and does not help the community.  It often destroys lives and should not be used as a source of government funding; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Iranian Submarines

 
If Iran wants to build a nuclear submarine then they can make all the uranium they want to and claim they are not building atomic weapons, they are building submarines.  That will allow them to avoid non-proliferation treaties because it is okay to build atomic powered submarines.
 
I suspect they will not actually build a nuclear submarine.  They will fool around with building one and to assist them with that project they will buy one from Russia, or China or someone else who wants their oil.  They will buy an old, crappy one and claim it is for research.  They will claim they are making nuclear fuel to keep it fueled.
 
Iran is playing the West for fools and it will continue to work.  They have played us for fools for decades and we do little or nothing to stop them from supporting terrorism, destabilizing Iraq and Turkey, and threatening Israel and the United States.  We need to take more steps to free the people of Iran from Islamic totalitarianism; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Islands For Sale

A private owner may be about to sell islands to Japan that are also claimed by Communist China.  The problem is the Chinese don't want the Japanese to buy them.  There are minerals, fisheries, and other reasons why China is playing hard ball with the nations on their seaward borders.

The Chinese are working on new missiles to destroy American aircraft carriers so they can negate American power in the region.  They are harassing Vietnamese, Japanese and other research vessels in the region to try and increase pressure on those nations to stay away from areas China claims.

The Communist Chinese are trying many ways to expand their territory short of war.  Asymmetrical warfare is what the Chinese study.  They want to project power without having to go to all out war.  They want to claim those islands and exploit their riches.  They want to export so many cheap goods that they can destroy the economies of their potential enemies.  I think the Japanese should buy the islands and develop them as soon as possible.  The Chinese are looking for cheap victories, and a strong hand is they way to handle them; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Russia

The United States and Russia have more in common than we have dividing us.  President Obama and his administration have failed to move the United States and Russia to a period of greater understanding.  The United States needs to stand by it's allies.  Poland, Germany, France, the UK and all of Western and most of Central Europe are our allies.  They face the same problems and threats as Russia.
The United States and Russia also face many of the same international threats.  The US and Russia should be working together to find solutions to international crime, Radical Islam, a resurgent Communist China and international trade.  Both are powerful nations and we have worked together in space and other areas to our mutual benefit.
The Obama Administration has had a poor track record with Russia.  The Obama Administration, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have failed to stand up to Russia when they should.  Russians respect strength and when it is in our best interest we need to oppose them, like on missile defense.  When it is in our mutual interest the US needs to convince the Russians we are not a threat to them and that we can work together to solve problems; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Morality Needed

Criminals need to go to jail for the crimes they commit.  Criminals who murder people need to be put to death.  People should be safe from crime in their homes, their schools, churches, businesses, neighborhoods.  Crime is a terrible thing and must be stopped.
The way to stop crime is not with midnight basketball games.  It is not stopped by spending money on parks or welfare.  It is not stopped by excellent health care, or good schools.  Crime is stopped by morality.  When people think it is immoral to take things that don't belong to them then locks, guards, lights, dogs and fences are not needed.
When people behave in immoral ways they rob, cheat, steal, rape, murder and otherwise harm their fellow man.  No one commits a rape because there was no basketball game available.  No one robs a liquor store because they don't have nice parks to hang out in.  Our nation needs a moral revival, one based on the traditional values of hard work, saving, honesty, integrity; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Traditional Marriage

Liberals spoke of following the science when they had data to show that the global temperatures were increasing.  When the science is against them, they find excuses to avoid looking at the science.  The psychological effects of homosexual behavior have been downplayed for years.  Not because of scientific research that shows there are no ill effects.  Rather they have been downplayed because there has been no such research.
Psychology has been co-opted by homosexuals and political activists who place their political agenda above science.  They ignore the ill effects because it does not mesh with their politics.  Unsafe sex practices, STD's, suicide, and other mental and physical problems are simply brushed aside because they don't fit the political agenda.
When most societies through history have done the same thing there is usually a very good reason for it.  Nearly every society has had marriage and nearly all of them have been between one man and one woman.  Same sex marriage is historically unknown.  Homosexuals will tell us there have always been homosexuals, and they are right on that fact, but they have never been allowed to marry each other.  There are good reasons for that; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Silence

A white woman married to a black man wrote an article that called for the elimination of Black Studies programs.  She claimed they did nothing to solve the problems of Black Americans.  As a result thousands of people were riled up by the leftist professors who wanted to save their jobs and who do all they can to stifle any opposition to their positions.  They created petitions to fire the woman who wrote the article because the left only believes in diversity of race, and gender, not diversity of opinion.
Diversity of opinion can be valuable because it lets us see different sides of an issue and may point out flaws in our arguments we had not realized.  In the academic realm it is surprising how resistant educators are to differences of opinion.  Global warming is a fact.  God does not exist.  Evolution is not a theory but a fact.  These are settled matters in academia, there is no debate.
I think we should be free to debate any issue.  We should debate in a civilized and mature manner.  While I loath President Obama's political actions and beliefs, I always refer to him as President Obama.  It is appropriate for as long as he holds office.  When I was in the Army we were told to respect the position even if we don't respect the person who holds it.  Liberals do whatever is needed to silence debate, and that's just too bad; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Climate Change

Global warming skeptics as knowledgeable about science as climate change believers, study says | Fox News

The left all think that climate change is being caused by the industrialized nations of the Western world.  They think the only way to solve it is to keep Western populations down, stop capitalist nations from expanding their economies, and generally destroy the high standard of living in the developed nations.  They used to call it global warming, but since that has proven to be a false premise they have changed the name to climate change.

When I was a child we were told the world was heading for a new ice age.  It was due to natural cycles in the worlds climate.  We were told by leftists that overpopulation was the terrible thing that was destroying the natural world and that Western nations had to stop growing so that the world would not be destroyed.  No matter what the problem the solution is always the same, destroy Western civilization.

Conservatives are just as concerned about the environment as liberals.  We live here on the planet just as the liberals do. The difference is that liberals are simply looking for an excuse to destroy Western civilization by any means.  They use overpopulation, global warming, climate change or any other excuse to bring down capitalism; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Love Not Hate

Opposition to same sex marriage is not hate, it is in fact love. Sex acts by same sex couples is a sin.   As Christians we stand against sin as a way to save the sinner from acts that will condemn him to hell.   As a Christian I want everyone to experience the love of Jesus Christ.
 
As a result I work against those who would lobby for "gay" marriage. I work against those who support any couple who live together in a sexual relationship, straight or gay.   I work against those who engage in any sexual sin. Cheating in your marriage, homosexual marriage, pre-marital sex, are all sinful.   Jesus called us to speak the truth in love.
 
Jesus does love all of us, but he also says if we love him, we will keep his Commandments. Those who engage in same sex marriage have not kept his Commandments, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Communist Chinese Threats

=

The Communist Chinese have been throwing their weight around in the Pacific Ocean.  They have been making threatening noises at the Philippines, Japan and even Vietnam.  As the Communist Chinese destroy the West economically by using their cheap labor and undervalued currency as a weapon against advanced economies, they are using the money they get to gain military might.

That military might is being used to intimidate the maritime nations that are near China.  There are fisheries and potential oil reserves in those regions, so the Chinese are trying to force other nations to give up their complaints to local islands or shoals.  These nations have economies that are generally not subject to the time of cheap goods dumping that hurt advanced economies.

The Communist Chinese need to be confronted by the other nations of the world.  We need to confront their espionage.  We need to cut our budgets so we don't have to borrow so much money from China.  We need China to pay their debts to the US.  We need to build up our military so we can be ready to defend our allies.  The Communist Chinese are dangerous, we need to respond to that danger; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Girls & Guns

 
If you have never taken your daughter to the range, then June 9, is national take your daughter to the range day.  I liken firearms to automobiles.  People who are responsible enough to use a motor vehicle can use a gun.  If you feel uncomfortable with your child driving, then they should not have a gun.
 
Women are the fastest growing demographic in the firearms market.  More and more women are learning that having a gun is good fun, can be a comfort when they are afraid and alone, and that it is their right to keep and bear arms. 
 
When people are first exposed to firearms I like to start out with a .22 caliber, a rifle is best.  The recoil is low and the noise is low compared to most guns.  Always start with a safety briefing and give a short over view of how the weapon operates.  Many community colleges have firearms classes and most gun shops and ranges have instructors.  Always wear eye and ear protection on the range, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Atheists

 
Christians blessed a highway in Florida so that drivers would be safer on the road and it could be used for good.  Atheists tried to use unholy water to unbless the highway.  Atheists are strong in their belief that there is no God.  They want to foist that belief on others, no matter what the cost.
 
Atheists can't simply live their lives and try to ignore the occasional Christian who tries to convert them.  I just politely say I am not interested and close the door to the Jehovah's Witnesses who come to my door; without being cruel, or ridiculing them.  Atheists can't do that that.  They have to ridicule those who believe in God.  They have to do that to feel superior.
 
It's not just a case of live you life the way you want to, the atheists have to try to force others to give up their religion.  As a traditional Christian I hope everyone comes to Christ.  I don't try to ridicule others who are not religious and I don't try and make them feel foolish for not being a believer.  If people want to be Muslims, or Jehovah's Witness or even atheists, that's their choice and as long as they don't directly bother me, or only a tiny bit, then I don't care that they believe that way.  Atheists are as intolerant as they claim the religious people are; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Japan

=

Japan is upgrading their fleet of fighter aircraft.  This is good news that an ally is trying to make their military stronger.  We need to have strong allies in the Pacific Rim because Communist China is redoubling their military forces.  The Japanese are important allies and their defense is important to the United States.

Japan is upgrading their fleet of fighter aircraft.  This is bad news that an ally is trying to make their military stronger.  We need strong allies in the Pacific Rim because Communist China is redoubling their military forces.  The Japanese are important allies and their defense is important to the United States, but in WWI the Japanese were an important ally to the USA but that was a short lived condition.

Japan is upgrading their fleet of fighter aircraft.  That is both good and bad news.  It's good news because we need strong allies to counterbalance the growing Communist Chinese threat.  It's bad news because it shows the Japanese and others no longer feel that the United States will protect them like we have.  The USA has done a poor job to standing by it's allies against the Communist Chinese.  President Obama has allowed our military to become too weak.  He has sold our businesses to the Chinese and our debt and is giving a potential enemy too much power over us, and the Japanese see that too; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Christian Persecution

 
In the UK they will tell you that speaking against Islam is a hate crime, but now the government itself is acting against Christians.  They are telling Christians that they cannot wear a cross of crucifix at work.  Are they also preventing Muslims from wearing head scarves, burkas, or turbans?  Are they forcing Sikhs to shave their beards?  I suspect not.
 
This is part of the decline of the Christian Western Civilization.  The UK has gone from having an official Anglican religion to preventing Christians from wearing crosses at work.  I think that freedom of religion belongs to everyone or to no one.  If Christians can't wear crosses at work then no one should be permitted religious expression at work. 
 
The British court tried to claim that since it is not a 'requirement' that Christians wear the cross that their wearing of the cross is not protected.  Each Christian has to determine for themselves how they express their religious belief in public, it is generally not ordered from their church.  This is just a way to oppress Christians and avoid having to place similar restrictions on other religions; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Guns and More Guns

Americans are buying guns.  Not just men, but women too.  Gun ownership is at an all time high.  The Liberals have tried everything they could to stop the private ownership of firearms and despite their best efforts millions of more people are buying guns.  Many Americans are worried that President Obama in a second administration will make moves to ban many firearms.  I believe that is a real danger should he win re-election.
 
It is important for freedom that we have the right to both own guns and to carry them for hunting, target shooting and personal defense.  The right to have guns is pointless if you have to keep them locked up in gun safes.  Accidental death by firearm is at an all time low.  Gun owners have shown themselves to be responsible. 
 
There are no shootouts in the streets of Florida over every little traffic accident.  That was predicted by anti-gun activists when Florida passed a law allowing nearly any state resident to obtain a firearms permit to carry a concealed weapon.  If you believe in democracy, then you should believe in personal firearms ownership.  If the people are responsible enough to vote for president and other officials then they should be able to determine if they are in danger and need a gun to defend themselves; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Billions of Dollars, Millions of Jobs

The US Senate passed a bipartisan transportation bill.  Senator Boxer put out a press release that explains the bill will save 1.8 million jobs and create almost a million more jobs.  Three million workers who have jobs related to transportation that are dependant on funding from the Federal Government?  Three million workers out of a workforce of 160 million workers?  So more than one percent of the workforce is employed as a result of this bill?

That seems a tremendous intrusion into the workforce by the Federal Government.  Why should such a large percentage of the workforce be dependant on the Federal Government for transportation spending for their livelihood?  In general, road construction is a local function.  Highway construction should be a state function.  Interstate highway construction should be a Federal function but that can't require such a huge expenditure.

I suspected this bill from the beginning.  I suspected the cost of the bill is horrendous give the value it provides.  I suspected the number of people directly employed as a result of this spending is a tiny fraction of what they are claiming.  The Federal Government is all but bankrupt.  They need to stop spending money they don't have.  They need to stop borrowing money from Communist China to pay for things that the states should be doing or that should not be done at all, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Jobs

Who owns your job?  Who should determine who gets to work at your place of business?  When the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed many Republicans voted against it.  They voted against it not because they did not want Black people to be discriminated against, but because they wanted to to apply only to the government.  The government belongs to all the citizens and it should be equally accessible to all citizens.  Private companies belong to their private owners and they should have the freedom to serve who they want, hire and fire who they want for any reason they want.  That's freedom to use your property how you want to use it.
If a company discriminates against women, minorities or others it is up to the people to use their freedom and not purchase their goods or services.  They are free to hire who they want to hire.  You are free to shop there or on as you see fit.  If a Muslim owned company does not want to hire non-Muslims, why should they be forced to hire Muslims?  If a bar wants to cater to homosexual patrons, why to they have to serve straight patrons?  If a hair salon want to only do Black hair, then why do they have to serve other kinds of customers?
You don't have a right to go to any bar, get your hair done where you want.  It's not in the Constitution.  It's not an inalienable right.  Companies are owned by people and when you require companies to do something you are restricting the rights of people.  Companies will spring up to service the needs of people if there is a population that is not being served.  That's how capitalism works, we don't need government micromanagement over every decision to hire or fire, or which customers to service.  That's one of the many ways our nation is becoming less competitive internationally.  In the article I linked, a state agency did not want to hire a man with a beard.  He was awarded almost $300,000 because he claimed religious discrimination.  That would drive most companies out of business or at least out of California.  Yet our politicians continue to make new laws that drive out business and keep unemployment high; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
