Japan vs China


Japan is worried about Communist China. Japan our best ally in Asia is worried about Communist China, but almost no one in the United States seems to know anything about the problem. Rather, AOL News is telling us about a man with an obscene license plate. That story has run as a headline for at least two days now. Japan and Communist China are close to war and the US news media is more concerned about some movie actor who is having an affair than they are about matters of life and death.
Japan and China both claim sovereignty over several islands near their coasts. The Japanese seem to have the better claim in my opinion. The Communist Chinese want the islands because they are after the off shore oil rights, fishing rights and rights of passage that control over those islands would give them. Just as the old Soviet Union used to do, the Communist Chinese are nibbling away at the edges of their nation, trying to take over whatever territory they can. Nepal, Mongolia are hidden away and so Communist China quietly took them over, but these islands are out in the middle of the sea and are claimed by another powerful nation. It will be no easy matter for the Communists to simply take these islands away from Japan.
The United States is an ally of Japan. We have a mutual defense treaty with them. If China tries to take these islands by force, will the US be at war with Communist China? If Japan tries to get the islands back will the United States be with them in the battle, will we defend the Home Islands from attack? This is another international flash point the Obama administration has unable to defuse and so generally chooses to ignore. Too bad the Chinese and the Japanese are not ignoring it; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

RIP Neil Armstrong


When I was a kid my did worked for several aerospace companies. He worked on all the Gemini and Apollo programs. He was just one of hundreds of thousands of tiny cogs in the giant wheel that got men to the Moon. American men, before the Soviet Union. We proved that America is a great nation and that we could do anything if we simply put our national will towards a lofty goal.

Neil Armstrong was a great hero to me and millions of American. He was the first man on the Moon and he was an American. Many of our great allies helped us with the Moon and space program. Japan, Australia, Israel, Britain and many others provided facilities, technology and other aid. Still, it was an American program and it would not have happened if America was not the leader.

In the second half of my lifetime I have seen president after president cut our space program. Now our President has killed manned space exploration by Americans for the first time since we went to the Moon. Then he had the gall to post a photo of himself looking at the Moon to acknowledge the death of Neil Armstrong. This was an insult to Neil Armstrong and to all those Americans who gave their lives, and there were many, in the race to conquer space; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Politics


The left sees every issue as political. There are no moral, ethical, or religious issues, only political ones. That way the left never has to face religious opposition to their policies. If everything is political, and nothing is religious, then the religious have no right to speak about things that have nothing to do with religion. Since nothing that happens outside the church building has anything to do with religion, but rather is political, then the church cannot use it's pulpit to speak against ideas the left favors.

Abortion is one of those issues. To those on the left, it is only a political issue. It is the mother's right to choose to have an abortion or choose to carry the "tissue" to term and give birth. There is no religious aspect to that discussion, it is just politics, and to the left religion has no place in politics.

To those of us who are religious, the most important aspect of abortion is religious. The politics are irrelevant. It is not a right of the mother to harm her child. It is the right of the unborn child to be carried by the mother until birth. It is the responsibility of the mother to care for her child. That child was conceived and created in the image of God Himself, and an abortion is the destruction of the image of God, and that's a religious issue; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

12th Sunday After Trinity


Each Sunday has two lessons from the Bible, then a sermon based at least in part on one or both of those lessons is presented by the preacher.  I was honored to present the sermon that follows these two lessons for the 12th Sunday after Trinity Sunday.  I also wrote the sermon.
St. Paul Ephesians 6:10-20

Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power. Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand therefore, and fasten the belt of truth around your waist, and put on the breastplate of righteousness. As shoes for your feet put on whatever will make you ready to proclaim the gospel of peace. With all of these, take the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

Pray in the Spirit at all times in every prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert and always persevere in supplication for all the saints. Pray also for me, so that when I speak, a message may be given to me to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it boldly, as I must speak.

John 6:56-69

Jesus said, “Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever eats me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like that which your ancestors ate, and they died. But the one who eats this bread will live forever." He said these things while he was teaching in the synagogue at Capernaum.

When many of his disciples heard it, they said, "This teaching is difficult; who can accept it?" But Jesus, being aware that his disciples were complaining about it, said to them, "Does this offend you? Then what if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh is useless. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. But among you there are some who do not believe." For Jesus knew from the first who were the ones that did not believe, and who was the one that would betray him. And he said, "For this reason I have told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted by the Father."

Because of this many of his disciples turned back and no longer went about with him. So Jesus asked the twelve, "Do you also wish to go away?" Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom can we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and know that you are the Holy One of God."

The sermon:
 
+ Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart be alway acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength and my redeemer.

It probably won’t come as a big surprise to you that the Bible is full of great stories.  Today’s Epistle and Gospel are two of the best.  If you ever taught Sunday school, then you know that the Epistle is a good one, particularly for little boys. 

They love the literal aspect of the story.  They get to wear the “whole armor of God.”  A belt of truth around their waist, and a cardboard breastplate of righteousness are fun things to wear when you are ten.  They get a shield of faith.  What ten year old boy does not like carrying a shield?

Then they get the plastic helmet of salvation!  They get to wear a helmet.  Can’t you just imagine a Sunday school, with dozen little boys dressed up in cardboard breastplates, and cardboard shields and all wearing plastic helmets?  How much fun they must have playing dress up like that.

Then comes the best part; the Sword of the Lord!  They get a sword, how cool is that?!?  I can just see the organized chaos of twelve little boys waving swords around in Sunday school.  Can’t you just see that image?  It’s great fun.

The Bible is more than just great stories.  It is the inspired Word of God.  It is a message to us, when St. Paul wrote a letter to the Ephesians, he was writing to them and God, through St. Paul was writing to all Christians, everywhere, and for all time, not just in Ephesus.

A Christian man was arrested, because it was illegal in his country to be a Christian.  He was executed because he would not deny his faith.  He was beheaded.  Was I speaking of St. James, son of Zebedee?  He was the first Apostle to be martyred in 44 A.D.  Or of Christians beheaded this year for being Christians in Mali, Pakistan, Tunisia and many other nations?

St. Steven was stoned to death and was the first Christian martyr.  Christians have been stoned in 2012 in Pakistan, Iran, and even right here in Dearborn, Michigan, USA.

“Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power.”  Christian persecution has been around for as long as there have been Christians.  We live in a nation that when I was born Americans by 95% said they were Christians.  Now our nation responds to pollsters and only 75% say they are Christians.

It becomes more and more difficult to be a Christian in today’s America.  Christian values are assaulted at every opportunity.  I am involved in several Internet groups.  On one of them, a member mentioned he lost a close family member and I said I would pray for him and for the family member, and included a very short prayer in my posting.

I was told by other members of the group that they were too intelligent and too well educated to be Christians.  They did not believe in superstition.  Not only were they writing insults, but they also wrote that they did not intend to read any more of my responses to anything on that website!

The same oppression, disbelief, and hostility that faced the Apostles 2,000 years ago, is faced by Christians today.  The world refuses to listen to us.  The world insults Christians.  The world even murders Christians.

How are we to respond to this onslaught?  The same way that St. Paul told the Ephesians to respond; to put on the whole armor of God.  It is our protection against the world and its indifference, its ridicule, its hostility and oppression.

Our struggle is not against the people of this world.  It is against evil.  Evil comes in many shapes and forms.  Evil is found everywhere.  Evil is the enemy.  Only good can overcome evil.  Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Know your Bible.  Know what it says so that when evil speaks a lie, you can respond with the truth.  “The Sword of the Lord, the word of God.”  If you have not prepared you won’t be ready when the time comes.

You need a strong faith because the world will fire flaming arrows of evil at you.  Your faith will protect you.  Just as Jesus told the woman, your faith has made you whole; your faith will keep you safe from the assaults of this world.

To do these things you don’t need real swords, and real shields and real breastplates, you need prayers.  You need to pray for your church, pray for your clergy and pray for those around you.  It is your prayers that will change the world.  It is your example that will speak to people, as well as your words.

Why bother?  Why do all this?  Why subject yourself to the hassle, the rejection, even the animosity of others?  This brings us to the Gospel for today.

Jesus said, “Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever eats me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like that which your ancestors ate, and they died. But the one who eats this bread will live forever."

The Hebrews were given Manna from heaven to eat.  It was the bread of life for them as they wandered in the wilderness before getting to the Promised Land.  It was their bread from heaven.  When Jesus came down from heaven he came as the bread from heaven of the New Covenant.  He is the bread of life.  He instituted the communion of the bread and wine; the flesh and the blood of life. 

When people heard that it was hard for most of them to believe what Jesus was telling them.  They could not or would not accept it.  As a result, they left his teachings.  The world was persecuting Christians, and Jesus was telling them a hard saying.  Why bother to put up with hard sayings on top of the persecution the world brings?

The Apostles knew the answer.  When Jesus asked them why they stayed with him, they gave the correct answer to Him.  They stay because there is no place else to go, once you have the truth, nothing else matters. 

So when your friends leave you, and your boss won’t promote you, your own neighbors don’t want any part of you and even your own kids make fun of you and don’t want to talk to you.  Do as it says in the Epistle, “…stand.”

Read the papers and see that other Christians say that there are many routes to heaven.  Listen to the radio and hear people say that Jesus is not the only route to salvation.  Watch television and see someone tell us that everything is holy.  But none of that matters.  What matters is what does the Bible say? 

“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.”

Just as Jesus did.  You don’t have to answer every accuser.  In Mark the Bible says: “And the high priest stood up in the midst, and asked Jesus, saying, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee? But he held his peace, and answered nothing.”

Mark: 14: 60, 61a,

He said nothing, but he did not recant his beliefs.  He did not go along to get along.  He stood firm.

Let’s look only at the words of Jesus in today’s Gospel, he said, “Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them. Just as the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever eats me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like that which your ancestors ate, and they died. But the one who eats this bread will live forever. Does this offend you? Then what if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh is useless. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. But among you there are some who do not believe.  For this reason I have told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted by the Father.”

This is a difficult saying.  We have to believe that Jesus is the way to salvation.  We have to drink his blood and eat his flesh and no one can come to him unless it is granted by the Father.

When I read this selection I think of the Apostles response and I think again of that Sunday school with a dozen little boys wearing plastic helmets, and cardboard breastplates.  I see them in my mind.  I can imagine the Apostles feeling very small and childlike when they have heard the words of Jesus and they have seen others fall away.  Then Jesus turns to the Apostles, those little boys and says in a stern voice:  “Do you also wish to go away?"

I see them standing there, faces looking down at their feet.  Simon Peter being the only one who is brave enough to look up from the ground and answered him, saying in a little boys’ voice, "Lord, to whom can we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and know that you are the Holy One of God."

Come, let us eat his flesh and drink his blood together in this holy Eucharist.

Ammo!

 
The Department of Homeland Security is buying 450 million rounds of ammo.  That's enough to shoot everyone in the USA.  The National Weather Service is buying ammo too!  It's also a non-story.  The Glock Model 22 handgun is the most common police handgun in the United States and it's.40 caliber.  The agency I work for has 36 regular full time police and 15 part time reserve officers.  We qualify every month at the range and typically shoot as many as 30 rounds per month.
Do the math: 36 + 15 officers + 51 officers.
51 officers shooting 30 rounds practice a month = 1,530 rounds of ammo per month.
1,530 round of ammo per month times 12 months per year + 18,360 rounds per year, so round it off to an order of 20,000 rounds of ammo in a year for practice at one of the smallest police departments in Los Angeles County.  Jacketed hollow points are standard for police use since at least the 1980's because they provide good stopping power and are less likely to over penetrate a body and injure an innocent person standing near the criminal.  That's the same ammo nearly every police agency and security agency in the nation uses.
 
Domestic police work is not the same as international warfare and is not covered by the Geneva Conventions. In warfare you want to disable the enemy if possible not kill him. An injured enemy causes the other enemy troops to have to care for him and takes many more resources out of the fight. The goal in law enforcement is to stop the suspect immediately from stabbing people, shooting people or whatever he is doing, therefore hollow point bullets make perfect sense.
I suspect the Weather Service has buildings full of expensive computers that they have to guard from international terrorism, domestic terrorism and just regular criminals and so they probably have police or security guards that they have to buy the ammo for so they can do their jobs.  Nothing unusual about any of this. I am a security and police firearms instructor and I have had as much as 20,000 rounds of ammo in my car on the way to the range for a day of training. Nothing unusual here.
Oh, and you use the same ammo for training that you use on the street so it has the same ballistic properties, recoil and weapons functioning that the duty ammo has. A hollow point will feed into the chamber differently than a pointy bullet and will fly through the air differently too.  These articles are being written to scare people when in reality there is nothing scary about them; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Election

A California congressman has announced his immediate resignation.  His reason was that he did not think anything would happen for the rest of this session and he got another job with a law firm.  The people elected him to serve his term.  It is his obligation to serve his term unless he has a grave medical condition, or is resigning due to a scandal.
I was opposed go Governor Palin resigning her governorship of Alaska before her term was out.  I think every politician should be required to serve out their term of office and should not be permitted to run for election to any new office as long as they are serving as an elected official, except to run one time for re-election.  So any congressman who wants to be president should have to wait until their term is over and then the could run for president.
The penalty should be for them to forfeit the right to hold any elected office.  The people should get the representation they voted for, and it is morally wrong to resign from office or to run for another office while still holding office.  No private sector job will let you spend you day looking for work while you still work for your old company.  Why should elected officials be any different; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

DADT

When I went into the Army they actively screened out homosexuals. If they found out someone was homosexual, they removed them from the service. The Army recognized as far back as General George Washington that homosexual behavior is abnormal and incompatible with military service.
Homosexual activists told us they just wanted to serve like everyone else. So under political pressure the military adopted a police of don't ask, don't tell. If someone was homosexual they could serve but they could not tell anyone they were homosexual nor could anyone ask if another soldier was homosexual. This policy was a total failure. Hundreds of soldiers every year were kicked out of the service as homosexuals refused to keep their perversion a secret.
As a result of this failed policy, President Obama has given a new policy, one that permits homosexuals to serve openly. This policy will not create any new advantages to the US military. It is strictly social engineering to make political points for the Democrats and President Obama. The military has taken this even further than required, they are permitting marriage ceremonies by Military Chaplains. They are celebrations to congratulate soldiers who are homosexual. The moral decline of our nation accelerates under President Obama; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Space

The United States military is highly dependant on space for a variety of critical missions. GPS provides not only navigational data but also targeting data. Radios and telephones need communications satellites to provide near instant connections all over the world. Our ability to use spy satellites to check on potential enemies is critical to our ability to respond in a timely manner.
The Communist Chinese have a robust space program. They are launching all kinds of satellites and are working on a manned space program. Unlike President Obama, the Communist Chinese think that having a manned space program is important for a nation that wants to be the most powerful country on Earth.
The US spends more money on cosmetics, on pet supplies, and many other non-essential things than the entire NASA budget. The US needs a manned space program. We should have a full time space station orbiting the Earth, a full time Moon base and we should be landing on Mars by now. We as a nation have dropped the ball and need to make up for lost time. The US Army had a plan for a permanent manned Moon base by the early 1960's. We are so far behind that we need a crash program in space; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Trade Deficit

 
The US trade deficit is 600 billion dollars per year now. That's $600 billion we could be using to hire American workers, pay American taxes, buy American products. If we spent all that money here, we could hire 12 million American workers at $50,000 per year.
American companies are subject to minimum wage laws and in most states if they make a mistake and fail to pay the money correctly they risk going out of business. American companies are subject to laws on racial, age and religious discrimination. If they make a mistake, they run the risk of being put out of business. There are thousands of Federal laws that need to be struck down that impede American business. If states want to enact them, then they can pay the price of regulation.
Foreign companies don't have all those restrictions. They don't have millions of lawyers ready to sue companies for $5 mistakes that will earn the lawyers millions of dollars. They don't have all the other regulations we have here, yet those foreign companies compete directly with American companies. Even if we are better, we can't compete against all that; we need to drastically cut taxes, regulations and give business owners more freedom; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Communist Spies

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/united-technologies-acknowledges-coverup-of-sale-of-military-software-to-china/2012/06/28/gJQAM2XU9V_story.html
=

One of the reasons the United States Armed Forces are unbeatable is that we have the finest technology in the world.  Now United Technologies has been found to have sold military technology to Communist China.  This is a major blow to the United States.  We have to have the best technology because we want a small military force and we don't want to take any casualties if they can possibly be avoided.

The FBI is responsible for counter-intelligence work in the United States, that is detecting spies and stopping them from spying on us.  President Obama has wasted their time investigating local police and civil rights violations that can be better handled at the state level, rather than protecting the nation against Communist Chinese spies.

The US can spend billions of dollars and decades to develop a technology and then an enemy can take it all away in a flash for next to nothing.  The protection of the nation against espionage is critical for our national defense.  We need the FBI to focus on defending the nation against our real enemies, the Communist Chinese; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

South China Sea

The Japanese are worried about the Communist Chinese. Japan and China spend much of the 20th Century at war with each other. It is possible, the 21st Century may replay some of that warfare, only this time it will be a Chinese military that is aggressive and expansionist.

Japan depends on importation of raw materials to make it's economy function. Japan needs oil from the Middle East and that has to come by sea. Japan has to export manufactured goods, like automobiles to earn the money to pay for their imports. Keeping the sea lanes open is critical for Japan.

A Communist China that claims large parts of the South China Sea is a great danger to Japan. Japan depends on those sea lanes for it's very survival. That does not even consider the rich oil and fish resources in those disputed areas. Japan cannot afford to sit by and allow Communist China to take over those areas without a fight. President Obama has presided over a huge decline in the ability of the US Navy to project conventional power. The USA needs a powerful navy to counterbalance the growing power of Communist China; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Natural Marriage

http://townhall.com/columnists/patbuchanan/2012/08/03/on_the_chickfila_front_of_the_culture_war/page/full/
=

A man states that he believes that marriage should be between one man and one woman.  He gives money to organizations that believe as he does and lobby to help keep that as the law.  Soon afterwards dozens of elected officials and public figures call for a boycott of the mans business for his "hateful" attitude.  The elected officials say that they will block his lawful business from opening in their cities.

In nearly every state, same sex marriage is illegal.  Same sex marriage has never been voted in by the people.  It has only come about by judicial fiat, or state legislatures who voted against the will of their constitutes and forced it on the people.

In the name of tolerance and inclusiveness and diversity the leftist media have vilified a man who has only said the wants people to do what is legally required in a majority of states and that has been the norm in nearly the whole world forever.  I support Chick-Fil-A, my wife and I have eaten there twice in recent days, a 200% increase in the last five years.  Natural marriage is what God wants, it's what Chick-Fil-A and I stand for; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Cross

The Constitution of the United States prohibits the government from establishing a state religion. There is no requirement for a separation of church and state. That's from a letter written by Thomas Jefferson years later. Now the liberals have mutated that into freedom from religion. Liberals hate religion because it sets immutable stands of behavior. It prevents them from doing whatever they want to do to the people.
Even the slightest hint of traditional religion is anathema to them. A city seal has a tiny cross on it, because one of the major buildings in town is a Christian church. The city seal shows a skyline with all the major buildings in silhouette. Liberals don't like reality in a city seal if it reflects a reality they don't like. So the liberals threaten lawsuits and get the city to remove the cross.
There real agenda is to remove Christ from the city, no merely the cross from a city seal. The are offended by the symbol that limits their ability to endorse homosexual marriage, child sex, euthanasia, abortion and other immoral activities. As a result, they do all they can to invent reasons why the Cross of Christ cannot be displayed; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Corruption


http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/members-of-congress-trade-in-companies-while-making-laws-that-affect-those-same-firms/2012/06/23/gJQAlXwVyV_story.html?wpisrc=al_comboNE

Crooks, that's what these people are in my opinion.  If you work for a company and you get inside information about a new product that is doing well and the stock will go up and then buy low to take advantage of that knowledge, you go to jail for insider trading.  If you work for a company and get inside information about a new product that is going to bomb, perhaps the product was supposed to be very profitable and they find a hidden flaw that will crash the stock price, and you sell off before the information makes it to the street, then you go to jail.  Insider trading of stocks is illegal, unless you are a member of Congress or their family.

Over a hundred members of Congress and their families are using insider information to get rich.  Members of Congress should not even be trading in stocks at all.  Their money should go into a blind trust for them until they return to private life.  That's right, they should have no control over the stocks they buy and sell and the information they have should be confidential or open to the whole public.

This is what happens when we have a professional Congress.  Most of then serve until they die or so old they can hardly walk.  That's because it's too lucrative to give up your position when you have all their perks and the ability to perform insider trading.  This is part of the massive restructuring we need to do of our government to make it more responsive to the people.  We can start by overturning the Senate in November; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Rioting



Too many people are concerned about the military training for riot control in the USA. For much of the post WWII era and even more so in the post Cold War era the US military has been conducting low intensity conflict, nation building and peace keeping mission all over the world. Places like Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Haiti, the former Yugoslavia and many other places the military function more like police than soldiers. We seldom fought stand up enemies with tanks, artillery and air support. When we do, they get crushed like bugs.
Our military has fought wars more like the British in Northern Ireland with a few terrorists with a few bombs, snipers and mortars. While having air support, armor and other military equipment is important for those deployments, they are not the day to day weapons employed. It only makes sense to have Military Police in both the Army and Marines train for MP missions.
I am 57 years old and live in Southern California. Every five years or so the region has been rocked by massive civil unrest due to racial tensions, anti-war politics, or whatever. It only makes sense for the military to plan on intervention in those types of situations. When I was in the Army Reserve we did riot training in the early 1980's. Part of the mission of the military is to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. That means they sometimes have to deploy against those "domestic" enemies. It is right for them to have rules of engagement, training, policies, and procedures for those instances where they function in the USA. Remember Kent State? Poorly trained National Guardsmen fired on protesters and killed four of them.

Haters Gotta Hate

Shocking Video: Attacked by "Tolerance" (Peaceful Traditional Marriage Supporters Violently Assaulted) - RPVNetwork

Practice what you preach.  A group of Roman Catholics were standing on a street corner and with signs protesting against homosexual marriage were repeatedly attacked by homosexual activists.  They drove past and screamed obscenities at them and flipped them off.  The homosexual activists threw beer bottles at them and injured one of the Roman Catholics with a big lump on the head.

They stood there with signs and several women approached them yelling obscenities at them, and one even sprayed tear gas on the Roman Catholics.  A man driving by sprayed insect poison on the men holding the signs.  Another man walked up to them and tore pages out of a Holy Bible and threw the pages at the Roman Catholics while yelling at them.

At least two different men walked up to the Roman Catholics and grabbed their signs and tore them up.  Another one spit on the Roman Catholics.  All this done on a public street, in full daylight, while being videotaped.  That's the view of tolerance held by those who support the left and the homosexual lobby; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

War


The Indian Navy has been buying heavy ships including an aircraft carrier from Russia. This allows the Russians to influence Indian naval policy. It allows Russians to earn foreign cash and to keep their shipyards open and working. In the meantime the US continues to suffer from high unemployment, and jobs in the ship building industry are hard to find.

As the United States under the Obama Administration continues to degrade our ability to project power and undermine the strength of the military at every opportunity, India is stepping up to fill part of that vacuum. There has been no one argue that the US military would have won the Iraq War quickly if we only had openly homosexual soldiers serving in the US Army. Yet that has been one of President Obama's major military achievements in the last four years. No one thinks the War in Afghanistan would suffer fewer casualties if only the US Marines had women in combat positions, yet President Obama is evolving in that direction as well.

War is a serious, life or death business. It is not the place for social experimentation. We need to go back to the military of the late 1950's. Women filled only a few support roles, because it was certain that even supply and maintenance troops needed to be combat ready, something we have seen in this last war. Homosexuals were barred from service because it was shown that their presence was bad for morale and discipline, and they had been banned from service as far back as George Washington's time. We need to make changes to our military to make them stronger, better, at keeping America safe, not to make them more diverse, more inclusive or more politically correct; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Murder

The United States has been at war against Radical Islam for over ten years.  How many movies, TV shows, actors and comedians have supported that war and taken our enemies to task?  Very few.  How many movies have we had that portray Christians in a bad light?  Sin City for example has a corrupt priest as a main character and they appear over and over again in recent movies.
The media knows they can put a crucifix in a jar of urine and insult a billion Christians with little backlash.  They also know that if they so much as tease Radical Islam they may have to pay with their lives.  Which is the greater danger to Western Society?
The media have failed to perform their duty to warn of us of approaching danger.  In the years prior to the Second World War the media was filled with stories of Japanese and German spies, saboteurs and impending war.  Now that we are at war the media seems to consciously ignore the danger.  In one movie based on a book the enemy was altered from Radical Muslims to Nazis.  Radical Islam will kill more Americans this week than have been killed by Nazis since the end of World War Two in 1945.  Hollywood needs to wake up and do a better job of alerting us to the real dangers in this world; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Heretic Movie

A new film that angers Christians.  A new film that totally distorts the life of Jesus Christ and for some reason that causes anger among Christians.  Christians believe that Jesus Christ was the son of God, fully God and fully human by nature.  He was born of his mother, Mary who was conceived by the Holy Ghost.
A movie that depicts Jesus as simply a man, denies the divinity of Christ and is a direct challenge to the precepts of Christianity.  A movie that says Mary was raped by a Roman soldier and conceived a son as a result also denies the divinity of Christ.  Right there are at least two direct challenges to the basic tenants of Christianity.
With so much wrong in the world I would think that publishing movies that oppose a major religion that has as one of it's most central ideas, "Thou shall love your neighbor as yourself" is a poor idea at best.  To Christians this movie is an advertisement for heresy.  This is just another opportunity for Hollywood to mock Christians.  Far too many in the movie business are threatened by the standards of morality Christ and His Church hold, so they are always looking for a chance to degrade Christianity.  So rather than provide the traditional uplifting entertainment that used to be the norm, Hollywood instead looks to depict heresy; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

We Are Not the 99%

I keep reading articles that say the human being and chimpanzee have 99% of the same DNA.  Well, it turns out that's false, naturally.  Still it keeps coming up because the secular humanists who want to hammer home the humans are descended from apes and we are really no more than animals keep bringing it up.  It also keeps getting pushed forward by the animal rights people who foolishly are pushing for "human" rights for chimpanzees.
An unborn human has 100% of the DNA of a born human, do they get the same rights as other humans?  After all their DNA is identical to all other humans.  If simple DNA matching was enough to confer human rights, then we would have made abortion illegal decades ago.  Of course, chimpanzees and humans will have significant overlap in their DNA.  We have four limbs, two eyes, red blood, two nostrils, one head, one heart, a bony skeleton, just like dogs, cats, and lizards.  All that structure requires DNA and so, naturally, it will be similar.
Over the last 30 years more DNA testing has been done on humans and chimps and found that we really have less than 72% of our DNA in common.  The same chimpanzees who are described as being humans closest living relatives are over 28% different than us.  That's a big difference.  If you don't think so, how about a 28% pay cut?  That's a huge difference, and one we need to remember; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Give

I live in Southern California. In my lifetime I have seen numerous riots, earthquakes, floods, landslides, blackouts, brown outs, tsunami alerts, and just about everything short of a volcano. I believe we all need to be prepared for an emergency, a crisis, a problem. But realistically, how many guns do you really need in the event of a major sociological breakdown?

I have heard of people who have ten, twenty or more AR-15 type rifles and are buying more. People who have 50,000 rounds or more of various types of ammo, and are buying more. President Obama has been a disaster for this nation due to is irresponsible spending and bungling foreign policy. A President Romney will be much better for this nation. There will still be decades of work ahead.

Donating money to his campaign rather than buying a sixth assault rifle is a better investment. Donating money to a Political Action Committee that supports the Republicans is a better investment than another month's supply of food to go with the years supply you already have in storage. Giving money to keep the House and win back the Senate is better spent than buying another 10,000 rounds of ammo to go with the 100,000 rounds you already have; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Diversity

 
Liberals have been telling us for decades that our strength lies in our diversity.  This has a grain of truth in it, but in general, it's not really true.  Is Canada a stronger nation because a big chunk of it speaks French?  They have separatist movements and tension over the English and French languages.
 
In the United States we have race riots every decade with many people killed, injured and left homeless or without jobs.  We have to have lawyers and trainers and advisers tell everyone about their jobs and how to walk the minefield of "diversity."  Companies large and small are driven out of business because someone fails to get promoted or gets fired and suddenly a giant lawsuit is the result.  How does that strengthen the nation?
 
If diversity is such a strength, why do we have to mandate it by law?  If it is such a good idea, why do we have to constantly keep telling each other it's so wonderful?  Wouldn't it be self evident that it was a good idea?  Traditionally, in America, new arrivals take on the dominant culture and become American like the rest of us.  That is where our strength lies.  Not that you can move here from Poland and continue to be Polish for the next 100 generations.  Rather that you can come here from Poland and in one generation be as American as anyone else; that's our strength, and that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Work

I recognize not every one has much money. We conservatives need to focus our efforts and use our money most effectively. Realistically, how many of us can take to the woods and live off the land? Or retire to our bunker and hunker down until things get better in ten years?

America is at a tipping point and we need to use our limited resources wisely. The people who call you on the phone asking for a contribution are telemarketers looking for cash. If you want to work for a campaign then go to their local headquarters and ask what you can do for them.
 
Your local NRA or similar organization can certainly find something for you to do, but show up on their porch, that will get their attention. Someone has to post those signs on every telephone pole, it might as well be you; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Guns

How many people on this site purchased a gun because they were concerned that President Obama might get re-elected? How many of them purchased thousands of rounds of ammo, store food and supplies because they are worried that President Obama might get re-elected? How many of those same people are not going to vote for Mitt Romney because the is too liberal, or Mormon, or a RINO?  How many of those same people gave thousands or at least hundreds of dollars to Rick Santorum or someone more conservative, more Christian, or more Republican than Mitt Romney during the primary?

The time to vote against Mitt Romney was in the primary election. Those of us who did not want him as the presidential candidate for the Republican Party have already missed our chance to select someone else. This is not the time to stockpile ammo, food, and guns. Spend that money on the Romney campaign, or give it to the NRA Political Action Fund or to other conservative organizations that will campaign either for Romney or at least against President Obama.

Too many of us on the right are planning on some guerilla warfare. Ready to form a militia or take to the wilderness when the Islamist DHS comes in their black helicopters. This is a democracy, it is imperfect, there will be voter fraud and illegal campaign contributions; just as there always have been. But we can't use that as an excuse to sit back and let the other side win. We must stay engaged in the process. If on election day, we lose, because President Obama wins re-election, there is still plenty of time to stockpile guns, ammo, food and supplies; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

American Merchant Marine

http://nssavannah.net/

In the 1940's and 1950's the United States Merchant Marine was the envy of the civilized world.  We were so powerful that the United States actually constructed a nuclear powered civilian cargo ship.  Within a few years, Communists and their fellow travellers were protesting against nuclear power and so the concept of a nuclear merchant ship died.

As free trade advocates pushed to open American markets while keeping foreign markets closed, the American Merchant Marine died.  American politicians failed to take steps to keep American merchant ships competitive.  American unions pressured to keep wages high and uncompetitive.  American government officials failed to require the same standards of foreign flag ships entering American ports that they required of American ships.

As a result, the American Merchant Marine died and we lost thousands of high paying jobs, and a vital part of our national defense.  Nearly every product made in China, Japan or India and imported to the United States is carried by a ship, often by ships from those nations.  How about if we put a tariff on every cargo carried by a foreign flag ship?  How about if we require every ship that enters American waters to pay the same wages and hours rules as the state they are headed for from the point of loading?  The United States needs a strong merchant marine; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Christian Persecution

http://www.westernjournalism.com/american-muslims-stone-christians-in-dearborn-mi/

For the last few years a group of Muslims have held a street fair in Dearborn, Michigan.  With permission of the city, they block off about fifteen blocks and set up various booths and rides for people to enjoy.  A Christian group as seen this as the perfect opportunity to witness to a group of non-Christians.

Since it is a public street and open to the public the Christians have every legal right to be there enjoying the opportunities presented to them by the fair.  They handed out leaflets near the entrance to the fair. and were told by police they had to leave.  They moved a block away were were again to told they had to leave, and were threatened with arrest.

This year they asked for a free speech zone to be created near the entrance so they could have a booth or area where they could preach and the city and police department ignored their request.  The Christians showed up anyway and were pelted with bottles and milk crates.  When the police arrived the attack stopped but the Christians were threatened with arrest and forced to leave.  Why did the city of Dearborn threaten non-violent Christians with arrest but fail to arrest a single Muslim who was committing a violent attack against the Christians?  Is this the future of America?  I hope not; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Strategy

In my opinion, pay for the lowest ranking troops is actually too high. At least up to E-3 and 0-1 soldiers should not be paid a living wage. Those on their first enlistment just need enough money to get by. Instead we have determined to pay them enough to raise a family on, right from the beginning. Since most of the military is low ranking people we end up paying way too much for personnel. Instead the lowest ranks should barely get by and the savings should be spent on equipment.

We also need a much larger National Guard and Reserve force. We should have the men and equipment to fight a major war. What happens if we end up in a war with Syria or Iran in the Middle East and then North Korea attacks South Korea or Communist China attacks Taiwan?

I have always wondered how we would deal with a worldwide threat these days. Communist China, North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba, Syria, Iran are all regional powers, but in different regions. What would we do if they all formed a new Axis and decided to attack all at once? I think we would be stretched beyond our ability to cope. Our dependence on Communist China for electronics, many of which go into military gear is disturbing.  We need a new and better global strategy; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Bad Love


A man who has been an activist for homosexual rights, and an open homosexual, and who sat on the San Francisco  Human Rights Commission has been arrested for child porn.  He was a leader in his community, even receivingthe honor of a week named in celebration of him and his contributions.  He had images on his computer of babies having sex with adult men.  Babies is the only way to describe children under the age of two and even one year old.

Naturally, the main stream media have buried this story.  This accused criminal was the first one to call for domestic partnerships in a lawsuit.  The relationship between homosexual men and pedophiles is very disturbing.  The same justifications that homosexuals use for their immorality is the same justification used by pedophiles.

It's all about love.  We don't have to be bound by tradition.  We don't have to limit ourselves to Christian ideas, we have separation of church and state in this country.  What two people do in private is no one elses' business.  These are the lies we hear frequently from the homosexual community.  They apply equally to the pedophile community too.  It is no surprise to me that they are often one and the same; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Movie Murder


If a business has the right to declare their premise a gun free zone, and I believe they should have that right, it's their property after all, should they then also have the duty to protect those people on their property from assault by people who may ignore the signs and bring guns in anyway?

 At Disneyland Park in Anaheim, they have a no weapons policy, but they search everyone who enters and they have armed police officers on site in addition to their high fences, cameras everywhere, and ubiquitous private unarmed security guards. They seem to do a good job of keeping the park safe so that you can move to condition white and not have to worry as much as you would out in public about criminal activity.

I would think that the theater owners should have provided that level of protection if they did not want people with guns entering and committing criminal acts. The suspect entered and then left via an exit that he then propped open and returned that way after equipping himself. That seems a huge breech of security on several levels. Perhaps if such owners lost a few multi-million dollar lawsuits they would either permit lawful firearms to be carried there or provide better security; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Fire the Teacher

Reveal Sex Fantasies in Order to Pass-College Instructor Allegedly Required Students to Masturbate.....‘Pure Terror’ - Patriot

College is about learning.  College is not about fulfilling the sexual fantasies of the professor.  If this professor was a supervisor or manager in any business in the country he would have been fired and sued for his behavior.

Students should have have to reveal personal information about themselves to pass any college class.  Learning is about compiling information and being taught how to analyze it.  It is not about your personal sexual experiences, masturbation or fantasies; that is your personal business and not the business of your school or college professor.

I am in favor of academic freedom at the college level, but everything has limits.  Professors should be teaching students information that will help them in their careers and lives after they graduate; rather this professor seems more interested in fulfilling his own prurient interest.  He should be fired, his class should not be taught any longer and he should not work as a teacher again; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Intervention

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2166780/Penn-State-officials-covered-Jerry-Sandusky-child-abuse-talk-Joe-Paterno.html#ixzz1zK2lWnHT

A man was in the shower abusing a small boy.  Another man saw that and told his boss about it much later.  The boss passed the information on to his bosses.  No one did anything.  My point here is this, the proper course of action was this.  A man sees another man abusing a boy in the shower.  The man observing the act should punch the abuser in the nose, save the little boy, call the police immediately and name the abuser.  Period.

There is no other honorable course of action for a man to take in this situation.  The only other course of action is to observe the act, and call the police and then try to intervene if you were unsure you could prevail in a physical confrontation with the abuser.  Even then, you have to try.  We are talking about the life of a child.  Nothing is more precious, nothing is more important.

Penn State should have been banned from football for the next hundred years and given such heavy fines they would not recover for decades.  The individuals in the football program should become pariahs in the world of sports.  The complaint that other kids worked hard to get to Penn State to play football and should not be punished is a red herring.  They can go to some other school or play some other sport.  It's college sports, it's not curing cancer; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
