Satan is Pro-Abortion

http://www.gopusa.com/commentary/2013/07/08/barber-hail-satan-the-new-pro-choice-mantra/?subscriber=1

The Texas Legislature has been debating abortion for some time now.  Pro-life protestors were outside the Legislature and singing "Amazing Grace."  Pro-Abortion protestors began chanting "Hail Satan."

It seems to me that even if the Pro-Abortion people were in fact Satanists, it would be a poor marketing ploy to invoke the name of Satan during a protest.  Most Americans are Christian and to invoke the name of the Evil One is at least poor decision making.

Of course the poorest decision to make is to have an abortion.  It is the murder of an unborn person.  The womb should be the safest place in the world.  Women have a right to be safe and their babies share that right.  We should be making the world a less dangerous place for children and women by banning all abortions.  Choose life, just like your mother did; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Islam Tv

http://savingourfuture.com/2013/07/tv-station-to-air-muslim-call-to-prayer-as-christian-calls-it-treason/

In the United Kingdom, a television station will begin broadcasting the Muslim call to prayer every day.  As the Church of England is abandoning it's traditional Christian heritage, the vacuum is being filled by Islam.  It is only a matter of time before Islam takes over all of the United Kingdom.

Islamic nations forbid the building of Christian churches.  Islamic nations forbid Christians from trying to spread the faith.  Islamic nations forbid anyone for converting from Islam to Christianity.  Islamic nations forbid people from passing out Bibles.  Most of these crime rate the death penalty.

How ironic that Muslims don't respect other religions the same way.  They try and spread their religion to Christian nations.  They try and get their religious publications distributed in Christian lands.  Their laws are incompatible with the values of secular or Christian Western democracy, yet our own laws and our own foolishness require that we submit to their continued attempts to bring Islam to the Christian world.  All the while they reject a free market of ideas in their lands; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Bible


The Bible contains all the information that is necessary for salvation.  So a description of what Jesus looked like, or what heaven is specifically like is not needed for that purpose.  In the military we spoke of people having a need to know. 
 
If we are attacking the enemy tomorrow we don't have to tell every cook, and bottle washer what is happening, they don't have a need to know.  So I am sure there is much that we might like to know but there are over 125,000 words in the New Testament in English.  If it's not in there, you don't need to know, nor do I.

Just like the Bible tells us not to be involved with witches and people who tell the future, they don't say it's not real, they say don't get involved.  Not all information is either necessary or helpful.  When you need to know, you will find out.  You did not need to know how sex works when you were four. I am sure you figured it out by the time you needed to know, or someone was there to teach you; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

A Prediction of War

How well has the average person done in predicting the next war? Even the military and politicians have done poorly. Who can predict 5, 10 or 20 years into the future? If you need a nuclear missile submarine or aircraft carrier you need to built it long before you need it. From design to fully operational is what? Ten or fifteen years time?

Who in 1904 predicted WWI, French, UK, Russia, vs Germans and Austria-Hungary?
Who in 1929 predicted WWII, French, UK, Soviet Union vs Germans and Italy?
Who in 1931 predicted Pearl Harbor?
Who in 1940 predicted the Korean War?
Who in 1954 predicted the Viet Nam War?
Who in 1969 predicted the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan?
Who in 1972 predicted the Falklands War?
Who in 1991 predicted the 9/11 attacks?

War is hard to predict. People often predict wars that never happen, like the Cold War going hot. Most of these big wars were predicted by a few voices crying in the wilderness but they were generally ignored or in no position to change the course of their nations history.

Great powers, the USA, UK and others; must plan for a range of military action and have to err on the side of caution. If they lose the next war, they may not survive; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Russia & China


http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/asia_pacific/china-to-join-russia-in-beijings-largest-ever-joint-naval-exercise-with-foreign-partner/2013/07/02/a1bbd30a-e2e4-11e2-8657-fdff0c195a79_story.html

Communist China is holding massive naval exercises with the Russian navy.  It's just like back in the bad old days of the Cold War.  Huge Russian and Chinese fleets playing wargames against imaginary Americans, Japanese, and South Korean fleets.  Russia has been another policy failure with both the Bush and Obama Administrations.

Too often we have pushed them away when we should have been aiding them.  The Russians are facing a continuing war against Muslim extremists in their nation.  We have criticized their tactics, but we have failed to subdue Radical Islam in either Iraq or Afghanistan doing it our way.  We should be aiding them and trading with them, instead of trading with Communist China. 

China offers no political freedom for it's people.  While Russia is still not an open Western democracy they offer much more freedom to their people than the Chinese.  I believe if we engaged them in mutual cooperation against Radical Islam, international drug smugglers, and stability in the Middle East we could accomplish much, and not force them back into the camp of the Communist Chinese; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

COEXIST

In a democratic society I can understand the concept of COEXIST and also in a world of different people COEXIST is a nice thought.  The devil is in the details, however.  As Christians we are called to the Great Commission.  That requires us to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Still, that spreading is a non-violent preaching of the message.  I don't have to approve of the religion of a Jew, Muslim, Communist, Mormon, I have to attempt to convert him.  Yet, that message to convert them does not require that I revile them or hate them or oppress them.
 
Foolish people in our society think that Radical Islam hates America because America did not build enough orphanages, and schools in poor Muslim nations.  They fail to understand that Radical Islam hates us because they hate everyone who is not also Radical Muslim.  In the days of the Cold War the Communists called them Useful Idiots who did the work of the Communists, but were not Communists themselves.

Today we face challenges from many different directions.  As a Christian and as an American I am happy to coexist with everyone, just allow me the freedom, and others, the freedom to practice our religion, and control our property and conduct our affairs as we have for the last 200 years in this nation.  Instead I see other nations, and often even our own government trying to take away freedom rather than spread it; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Iranian Nuclear Weapons

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2013/06/27/us-ospreys-israel/2447419/

As the United States continues to secede it's role as the worlds only superpower to Communist China, we are arming our allies with weapons to perform duties we should be doing.  The United States is providing the Osprey, air tankers and new radars for jet fighters to Israel.  This will provide new capability to Israel to strike against Iran to stop their nuclear weapons development.

As the United States has unilaterally disarmed, cutting our nuclear weapons, cancelling programs, and scaling back operations the vacuum created is drawing in our enemies.  At least, for now, we have a few allies who are not willing to just sit by and do nothing.  Israel knows they must keep a strong defensive posture because their enemies are not willing to live in peace and harmony with them.

As a presidential candidate, Candidate Obama said he would meet with Iran, without preconditions, and solve the nuclear crisis.  The continually criticized the Bush Administration for their failure to handle the Iranian nuclear problem.  Now six years into his Administration, President Obama has also failed to stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.  No one knows how long it will be before Iran has a nuclear weapon, science does not operate on a strict timetable.  It could be next week, it could be next year.  I do know that Iran having a nuclear weapon will not make the world a safer place; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Girls Allowed


http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jun/27/special-operations-forces-are-worried-about-adding/?utm_source=RSS_Feed&utm_medium=RSS

President Obama wants to fully integrate women with men in the military.  This shows his severe lack of knowledge about how the military works.  If this were a good idea, then every professional sport would be coed.  Women don't compete in professional football, or basketball because the average woman is physically weaker than the average man.

Non-sexual male bonding is a very powerful force.  It has been around for as long as there have been men.  It is the reason that men fight in small units.  They are afraid of letting down their partners and afraid of being seen as cowardly.  It has motivated soldiers since the beginning of time.  Once even a single woman is introduced into the group, the force does not work.  Men try to compete for the woman and try to protect the woman.  Not only does society establish this role but so does genetics.

Putting women into combat will seriously degrade the fighting strength of the US military.  The Armed Forces are not designed for social experimentation.  They are there to protect our nation against our enemies.  It is wrong, both morally and practically to add women into combat.  Not a single general has said this will make our military more effective at fighting our enemies; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Return to Subic

http://www.reuters.com/article/2013/06/26/us-philippines-usa-idUSBRE95P1EP20130626

For decades the United States held many military bases in the Philippines.  Then anti-American hysteria caused the government of the Philippines to ask the US military to leave.  Now the fear of the Communist Chinese has caused the people of the Philippines to re-evaluate their need for security and allies.  They have realized that their true friends are the people of the United States.

The Communist Chinese have been expanding their navy and his been threatening all their neighbors.  They claim islands that are not Chinese as their own.  They use paramilitary forces to intimidate their neighbors.  The Communist Chinese even use civilian fishing boats to ram the naval and coast guard forces of their neighbors.

The United States may once again have a naval base in Subic Bay in the Philippines.  The problem is, the United States navy has been neglected for the past six years.  The ship building program is too small.  Our navy is smaller than it was during World War One, almost 100 years ago.  The Obama Administration is failing the United States, and is failing our allies; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Self Defense

 3 minute video

This is a video to train ordinary citizens to protect themselves from an intruder in their home.  It's too bad that every child does not learn this in high school.  It's too bad this is not shown on national television, in prime time every week on every channel.

The video discusses the need to flee if at all possible.  Even leave the house and go outside if you can to escape an intruder.  If you exit the house, go to a neighbor and ask them to call the police.  Obtain a weapon, a firearm is best.  Certainly a Taser, pepper spray or other weapon would be better than nothing.  Don't shoot at people who are outside, when you are inside.  Only shoot to protect yourself or the life of another innocent person.  Then it is important to contact the police as soon as possible.

Remembering that the police will take a few minutes to arrive, at best, it's important to find a secure place to wait.  Lock yourself in a bedroom or a safe room if you have one.  When you call the police, make sure to describe yourself, give them as much information about the intruder as you can.  If the intruder tries to break into your bedroom, warn him you have a gun and will shoot.  Warn him several times if you can.  Tell him you have called the police and that they are on the way.  If you have to shoot, remember warning shots are generally a bad idea; you may hit someone else.  Self-defense is your right, self-protection is your duty; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Communist China & the Navy

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jun/13/china-draws-a-line-in-the-ocean/#ixzz2WyVyGv4p

It was not that long ago that Communist China had a coastal navy that was so weak they could not even attack Taiwan.  Now they have a blue water navy that is holding joint exercises with the Russians and patrolling off the coast of Hawaii.  They are operating an aircraft carrier and working on more of them.

The Chinese are using American money from the goods they sell to us to finance the fleet.  American lose jobs and our economy is weakened because the Communists have taken a long term strategy to defeat America.  Destroy our economy with cheap goods, build their navy as we are forced to cut our navy.  Then the Chinese will be in a position to threaten Taiwan, Japan, maybe even New Zealand and Australia with their new offensive navy.

In the meantime the Obama Administration has promised a token number of Marines for Australia and failed even to fulfill that promise.  Nicaragua has authorized the construction of a canal between the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean to rival the Panama Canal, and it's being built and operated by the Communist Chinese; while the Obama Administration does nothing.   Communist China is on the march, and America is on the defensive; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Martin vs Zimmerman

The testimony of several witnesses and the evidence all indicated that Martin was sitting on top of Zimmerman, Martin was punching Zimmerman in the face, causing a split lip, two black eyes and a broken nose as well as injuries to the back of his head.  Martin was uninjured apart from a cut to one hand (from punching Zimmerman).  Fearing for his life, Zimmerman fired one shot and that killed Martin.
 
To avoid great bodily injury or death anyone may use deadly force in response to protect themselves, that's the law in every state.  Legally, Zimmerman was the victim, and Martin was the guilty party.  The evidence made that clear from the beginning.
 
Each of us is made in the image of God.  We should not celebrate the death of Trayvon Martin.  We should be sad that a young American was heading for a life of drug abuse and criminality, and his behavior lead to his death when he found a victim who was not prepared to die that night.  We should pray that God will help this nation redeem a generation of young people who are wasting their lives; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Wrong on Rights

"I believe when two people love each other and are solemnly committed to each other, they should be permitted to participate in the tradition of marriage, which provides social stability, economic equality, and the ability to make decisions for a spouse in a time of crisis."

I sent an email to Senator Dianne Feinstein in opposition to same sex marriage, and this is a portion of her response.  It is a very sad and dangerous response.  It says that she is willing to permit a tiny portion of the population to dictate to the majority.  It says she has no morality based upon any immutable standard.

The Bible says that marriage is between one man and one woman.  God created Adam and Eve.  As a result, Western society has had the same standard for marriage for over 2,000 years.  Dianne Feinstein says that does not matter.  The other, more disturbing aspect to her answer is that it also applies to incest, pedophiles and other perversions.  It's just a matter of time until they too want these same rights; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Abnormal Marriage


 
This article indicates there is controversy about homosexuals being allowed to participate in a marriage of two people of the same sex.  There is no controversy.  Traditional Christian churches that follow the same religion that Christ and the Bible have taught for 2,000 years believe that “Marriage, throughout human history, has been defined as a permanent and monogamous relationship between one man and one woman."
 
There is no controversy.  Those organizations who call themselves Christian Churches, but consistently reject the teachings of both Christ and the Bible, sometimes have other views on what constitutes marriage.  Those same groups share very little in common with traditional Christians and therefore it is not controversial that they don't believe in the sacrament of marriage as taught in the Bible.
 
The media, often staffed by non-Christians or non-religious people, seeks to depict controversy where there is none.  They seek to make it appear as if we have the option to pick and choose what parts of the Bible we will obey and what parts we will ignore.  God's laws are not ours to change, we get to obey them to bring us closer to Him.  We ignore them at our own peril; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Zimmerman vs Martin

Several of the witnesses said they heard Zimmerman calling for help and saw Martin on top of him.  Several other witnesses were not sure who was calling for help or who was on top.  Police arrived about 2 minutes after the shooting.  Martin had and injury to his knuckle, consistent with punching someone in the face and a single gunshot wound fired from one to 12 inches away.  Consistent with Zimmerman's story.
 
It's too bad that Martin was killed that night.  At 17 Martin should have been considering which college he would attend or which branch of the Armed Forces he would join; I have not heard any conversation about him doing either of those things.  Far too many American youth are tied up in using marijuana, having extramarital sex, participating in senseless violence and other self destructive behaviors.
 
Yes, George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin, but no criminal act was committed and George Zimmerman was found not guilty by a jury of his peers.  Now President Obama is pushing for a civil rights claim against Zimmerman.  I think that is a form of double jeopardy and should not be followed through  The state tried Zimmerman, and that's enough.  That's how our system is supposed to work, not trial by the media, and not a Federal trial if the state trial result is not want was wanted; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Martin vs Zimmerman

 
The Wikipedia article on the shooting is very complete and avoids much of the media hype.
George Zimmerman thought Trayvon Martin was acting in a suspicious manner.  Martin was 70 yards from home when he was shot.   If he felt he was in danger why didn't he go home?  He had a cell phone and was on the phone with his girlfriend.  Why didn't he ask her to call the police, or why didn't he hang up and call the police? 
 
George Zimmerman had called the police and had waited over 5 minutes for them to arrive.  Zimmerman should have remained in his truck, but there is no legal requirement for him to do that; it is a matter of poor tactics.  Zimmerman says he was surprised by Martin coming out of nowhere.  Again, poor tactics, poor situational awareness on the part of Zimmerman.  Had Zimmerman been looking for Martin, he should have had a flashlight; he says he was looking for a street sign so he could direct the police to the specific location.
 
Zimmerman says Martin punched him in the face, and pounded the back of his head onto the ground.  He had two black eyes, and a broken nose, and cuts on the back of his head; wounds consistent with that claim.  The police reported his back was wet, as it would be if he had been laying on the ground, in the grass.  Again, consistent with his claim of events.  Zimmerman said he called for help during the incident.  It took over a month for the investigation to be completed and for Zimmerman to be charged; that's not an unreasonable time; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Attack North Korea

http://www.wnd.com/2013/06/ex-cia-chief-to-obama-strike-north-korea/

Officials are urging a strike on North Korea to eliminate their nuclear weapons.  I agree we should not permit North Korea to build nuclear weapons.  How are we going to follow up after we have struck their nuclear weapons program?  North Korea may not just sit idly by and allow us to bomb their missile projects and nuclear sites.

Are we prepared for a North Korean attack on the South?  Is Japan, Communist China and South Korea ready for an attack by North Korea on any of it's neighbors?  What if North Korea still has one missile left?  What if that missile hits Tokyo?  Are we ready for that fall out?  Perhaps we should be training and equipping South Korea to attack North Korean nuclear and missile sites.  Then the nation that would be most effected by such a strike would have the ability to make that attack against North Korea. 

I agree we need to do something about the North Korean nuclear weapons.  We need to do it soon.  I would rather we find a way to destabilize their regime.  North Korea is starving but is not on the verge of collapse.  We need to find a way to collapse their nation.  We should be dropping leaflets, Bibles, small food packets, handguns, and tiny gifts on them to create a dissatisfaction and an underground movement.  We need to be waging a covert war of ideas against them so they will fall from within.  President Obama, and Secretary of State Clinton have bungled our foreign policy for years and this problem has continued too long.  Our military is in disarray after putting women in combat units and allowing openly homosexual people to serve as well as the sequestration disaster.  While an attack on North Korea is a good idea, I am no longer sure we could carry it out as we once could have; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Political Free Speech

http://www.gallup.com/poll/163208/half-support-publicly-financed-federal-campaigns.aspx?utm_source=alert&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=syndication&utm_content=morelink&utm_term=Politics

Polls show that some Americans want the Federal government to finance election campaigns.  Our Federal government is broke, they can't pay for the things that they have to pay for now.  How can they be expected to pay for election campaigns?  Who will get the money?  Anyone who says they want to run for public office gets a few dozen million dollars?  The fringe candidate that always gets .5% of the vote gets just as much as the popular grass roots candidate?  Why does that make any sense?

America is about freedom of expression.  If you can't get your message out now, how will having the government spending the money make it better?  An incumbent already has a huge advantage, by giving everyone the same amount of money to spend that just gives incumbents an even larger advantage. 

Are we really going to tell other people they can't spend their money on political advertising?  They can't run ads for our against abortion, immigration, tax reform or any other important issue?  This is America.  I think any candidate who is running for office should be allowed to spend as much money as he wants to spend for any office.  I would require that every dime be accounted for, both where and from whom it came from and where it was spend.  I would not permit money to be spend by foreigners to be used to influence our elections.  Other than that if a billionaire wants to spend a few hundred million to run for office or on a friend who is running for office, that's okay with me.  It's called freedom; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Communist China Owns Okinawa?

 http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/14/world/asia/sentiment-builds-in-china-to-press-claim-for-okinawa.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

The Communist Chinese are escalating their war of words against our ally, Japan.  There are now Communist scholars who proclaim that Okinawa and other isles in the Ryukyu chain are rightfully part of China.  This is typical of Communists, make outrageous territorial demands and compromise only when there is a benefit to them.

The Senkaku Islands have been claimed by the Communist Chinese and they have sent ships and aircraft there to challenge Japanese sovereignty over them.  Now by claiming Okinawa as Chinese the Communist add a new bargaining chip to the mix.  They could claim that if Japan gives them the Senkaku Islands, China will drop it's claim on Okinawa.  Of course, if Japan were foolish enough to give into those demands, China would soon begin claiming Okinawa was not Japanese territory.

Communist China has hinted that Okinawa should be an independent country.  They claim Japan has only held the islands fully since the 1870's.  Of course, by that standard the USA should give up Hawaii and Alaska, Guam, Wake Island and many other Pacific Islands.  Chinese ships may have cruised the coast of California, and there is a Chinatown in both Los Angeles and San Francisco.  Perhaps Communist China would like to press a claim for California as well; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Praise God

http://www.gopusa.com/theloft/2013/06/22/student-who-spoke-of-god-constitution-receives-apology-from-school-district/?subscriber=1

Across the nation high school students are giving commencement speeches that mention God.  As a result some have been silenced by their microphones being cut off, some have been threatened, some have been punished.  The school says they are doing this because the student deviated from their approved speech.  Many say it is because the changes to the speech glorify God.

I have no problem with schools asking for a copy of the students speech before it is delivered to the students.  I do have a problem with any significant censorship of those speeches.  The administration should review the speech to insure the content is not libelous, or profane.  Other than that, the content should be unaltered.

If a student wants to complain about a specific teacher, or use language that would not be proper for a G rated audience, then the school should require changes.  Students who want to praise God for their success should be allowed to do so, there is no legal reason why they should not be allowed to do so; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Cut Government Spending?

http://www.defensenews.com/article/20130708/DEFREG02/307080019/Pentagon-Begins-Furloughs-650-000-Civilians

"Pentagon Begins Furloughs of 650,000 Civilians" the headlines shout.  Wow, that's too bad, 650,000 people being laid off.  Well, actually, no.  Wow, that's too bad, 650,000 out of work until the new fiscal year on September 1st.  Well, actually, no.  What than?  650,000 government workers get an unpaid three day weekend all summer long!

For the next 11 weeks hundreds of thousands of Defense Department civilian employees will get additional day per week off without pay.  It amounts to about 8% of their pay.  Then why not simply cut their pay 8% and keep them on the job?  You can't cut their pay, they would then have their retirements cut if their pay was cut.

You can't cut their pay because this is only temporary and pay cuts are permanent.  We can't cut their pay because then they would have to do the same amount of work for less money, just like everyone in the private sector has had to do in the last five years of a slow economy.  You can't cut their pay because the big government unions won't let you; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

A blog is a World Wide Web Log.
 
I write three of them and I post to all three every day and have for over five years.
 
Hysterical Right Wing is about politics, social commentary, and current events.
 
SGT Says is about public and private law enforcement.
 
Bunker Talk is about miniature wargames, toy soldiers and military history.  On Bunker Talk I usually include five photos of my collection, in five years that's 10,000 photos of toy soldiers, tanks and such.
 
I write these blogs as a way to give back some of the information I have been able to gather in my 57 years as a person and to try to inform folks about ways to stay alive, give back to their community and to worship God, and to have fun.  Unless you have tens of thousands of readers per day, you can't make a living at it.
 
Visitors can also make comments about each blog entry.  Some comments are moderated to keep out the wackos but I try to read every one and respond to every comment.  I ask that comments be kept shorter than the blog entry.  Thanks for reading, tell all your friends, I am still hoping for tens of thousands of readers, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

India Bombing

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/07/india-muslims-strike-site-holiest-to-buddhism-with-nine-serial-explosions.html

Muslims are suspected as the suspects in a bombing attack on one of the most holy places to Buddhists in the world.  India sees acts of terror and murder almost every day, committed by Radical Islamists.  These attacks are usually ignored by the Western Media.

Radical Islam is an evil and dangerous religion.  They will not tolerate other religions.  They will not tolerate even other Muslims who are not radicalized.  Remember it was Radical Muslims who destroyed a pair of giant Buddhist statues in Afghanistan.  These statues were 1500 years old and since there were no Buddhists left in Afghanistan were not being worshipped.  Still, it was too much and despite protests from the whole world and United Nations, the Taliban destroyed the statues.

Radical Islam won't live in peace with other groups.  They won't live with other peoples statues, buildings or even other people if they can help it.  Many holy sites from Buddhists, Christians and other religions have been taken over and then destroyed completely or been turned into mosques.  That's the goal of Radical Islam; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Poor

What is the solution to our problems of poverty?  The first thing is to raise the expectation of people.  Elected officials, movie stars, singers, anyone in the public eye should conduct themselves in a decent, moral fashion. They should not have children out of wedlock, sing about murdering police officers, glorify the gangster lifestyle or degrade women.  We need a revival of Christian values, rather than midnight basketball we need Christian outreach so youth don't waste time with gangsters.

The old in the projects can babysit the young while their young parents can be taught how to read, write, and apply for jobs.  They can be taught computer skills and other job skills that are marketable.  They need to be encouraged that having a low paying job is better than welfare.  Supporting themselves is better than being taken care of, to be an adult who functions in society, not sponges off society.

Women need to say no to sex until they are married and men need to respect their word.  Men need to get married and take responsibility for their children.  We need to change to a low rate flat tax for all taxpayers so the complexities of tax management are done away with.  The money that is freed up would power the engine of commerce and we would have many more jobs; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Poor

With all the poor living together they would form gangs based on their neighborhood and race.  Then they would prey on those not in the gang or not from their neighborhood.  That made the surrounding neighborhoods less safe.  Police would not like to go in there because the gangs would not talk or report crimes, everyone else was too afraid of the gangs to testify against them.  Since they all lived there for free there was no option to move away.
 
I have worked the projects here in Southern California and about 10% of the people in them are decent and are stuck, I feel bad for them.  I have also known many 4th generation welfare families who all live together in the same complex.  This is my baby and we live here, that's where my mother lives and that's where my grandmother lives they will tell you.  The society is dominated by women because a single woman with children gets a free apartment.  More kids gets you a larger apartment, up to about three or four.  They never marry because they don't want benefit to be lost.  As a result them men drift between women and jail or prison.
 
They live with their mother, then go to jail, then they live with their grandmother, then go to prison, then they live with their baby's momma, then go to prison, then they live with another baby's momma, then go to prison forever or get murdered.  A few years ago Time magazine did an article that said the largest cause of death for young male Blacks is murder by young male Blacks and the second largest cause of death was suicide.  It's a problem for all Americans, yet the Obama Administration has not made it any better; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Poor

There was a theory in urban design that you put all the poor people together in subsidized government housing it would allow them to live inexpensively, access government services easily because they would be close by.  The kids would be given all sorts of advantages, playgrounds, tutors and such and they would work their way out of poverty in a generation. 

The poor would be living in government owned or government sponsored buildings and not subject to the abuse of slum lords.  It was a model project that was copied all over the country.  What they did not realize is the unintentional consequences of their actions.  If a 16 year old girl gets pregnant, she got her own two bedroom apartment, one for her, and one bedroom for the baby.  Every 16 year old girl then got pregnant because it was a way to get a free apartment and not have to be under the supervision of the parents.  All their role models were people in poverty so there was no stigma attached to taking welfare. 

The baby's daddy would move in with her, they would not get married because his income would be enough that she could not keep the apartment.  He would either work or do crimes to help support them.  Without having to pay taxes or rent they could live pretty well even on minimum wage.  Deal a few drugs on the side and you make pretty good money.  Under the Obama Administration we have more people on food stamps than ever before and more and more people falling into poverty.  What is he doing about it, that's the question here at the Hysterical Right Wing.

Useful Idiots

There is a popular bumper sticker that indicates we should coexist.  It is spelled out using symbols of various religions as if they were letters.
 
In a democratic society I can understand the concept of COEXIST and also in a world of different people COEXIST is a nice thought.  The devil is in the details, however.  As Christians we are called to the Great Commission.  That requires us to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Still, that spreading is a non-violent preaching of the message.  I don't have to approve of a Jew, Muslim, Communist, Mormon, I have to attempt to convert him.  Yet, that message to convert them does not require that I revile them or hate them or oppress them.
 
Foolish people in our society think that Radical Islam hates America because America did not build enough orphanages, and schools in poor Muslim nations.  They fail to understand that Radical Islam hates us because they hate everyone who is not also Radical Muslim.  In the days of the Cold War the Communists called them Useful Idiots who did the work of the Communists, but were not Communists themselves.  These bumper stickers seem to have a similar owner; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Victory in Afghanistan

http://english.ruvr.ru/news/2013_06_19/Four-US-soldiers-killed-in-mortar-attack-on-Afghan-base-5743/

The United States does not negotiate with terrorists.  Except under the Obama Administration.  President Obama is so interested in escaping from Afghanistan that he has agreed to negotiate with the Taliban.  We have always refused to do that because they intentionally murder innocent women and children in their war against freedom and democracy.

President Obama has given a deadline to American participation in the war.  His precipitous rout from Iraq has left that nation in near chaos.  Thousands have died since American turned tail and ran away.  Ending a war without victory is defeat.  President Obama gave us a defeat in Iraq.  Now he proposes to bring defeat to the war in Afghanistan.

On the day we begin negotiations with the Taliban they kill four Americans.  That is what they understand.  They understand strength.  They showed strength by killing four Americans.  The only way to trump that is to kill 400 of them the next day.  We did not do that.  We showed weakness, we were wringing our hands and crying over our dead.  Rather we should have showed greater resolve to end the war in victory.  President Obama does not care about victory.  He put women in combat and allowed homosexual perverts to serve openly in our military services for the first time in our existence as a nation.  Neither of these will save us from the Taliban or bring us closer to victory.  Our enemies are laughing at us and we are farther from victory than ever; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Communist China

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424127887324798904578531781367548350.html

Communist China is continuing to threaten the Pacific region.  They are building up their navy, moving from a coastal defense force to a blue water navy.  The United States under President Obama has cut defense spending 7%.  We have told Australia we will put 2,500 Marines there to insure our commitment to that nation; that's nothing.  In WWII the US Marines lost over 3,000 killed and wounded in three days attacking Tarawa, a fly speck of an island.  Does anyone think that 2,500 Marines will make any difference to the defense of Australia?  We have not even fulfilled that pledge.

The Communists are adding aircraft carriers to their fleet.  The US is cutting our fleet of aircraft carriers.  President Obama has approved the inclusion of Communist Chinese ships in US Navy fleet maneuvers this summer, off Hawaii.  Why do we even allow Communist Chinese ships to be off Hawaii?  President Obama wants the Chinese military to work with the US military to increase understanding.  Perhaps if we had worked the with Nazis we could have better understood the Kreigsmarine before World War Two. 

The Communist Chinese military does not need to understand the United States Navy.  They are our potential enemy.  They less they know about our navy the better.  We should be hiding secrets from the Communists, not trying to help them understand us.  President Obama is like so many other liberals, he thinks that talking can solve any problem.  Evil is not stopped by conversation; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Fire Fighting

http://www.wptz.com/news/national/Official-19-firefighters-dead-in-Arizona/-/8869978/20781058/-/fts81g/-/index.html

Nineteen firefighters were killed while fighting a brush fire in Arizona.  They were just overcome by a fast moving fire and suffocated or burned to death.  A fire can move as fast as the wind, literally it can move 100 miles an hour sometimes.  You simply can't run away fast enough.

We forget how dangerous fire is because many of us never are around brush or house fires.  Our fire fighters are so good that they contain them for us.  Every year about 60 fireman are killed in the line of duty.  It's typical that they die alone or in 2 o 3 man groups.  A ceiling collapses, and kills a couple of them working on a structure fire.  It is rare that so many will be killed all at once.

People don't realize that we are still fighting fires they way they were fought 1,000 years ago.  Generally, we throw water on them.  Certainly specialized fires, like burning metal, or oil are fought in new ways with chemicals and foams, but ordinary structure fires and brush and forest fires we simply use a hose to pour water on them.  We need to do more basic research on ways to stop fires and prevent them from happening.  We need to do a better job of alerting the fire department to fires.  Insurance companies, builders, fire departments and the government need to insure our buildings are safer, more fire resistant, and develop better ways to fight fire.  We also need to do a better job of retrofitting homes with fire sprinklers; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Crime Prevention

Self defense and firearms are only a small part of the whole personal safety equation. Simple things like keeping plants trimmed away from windows, have porch lights and lights all around the house, having good locks and using them are all basic and inexpensive things to do.

A quality firearm will easily cost $1000 and there is a lot you can do for a thousand bucks. Don't get me wrong, guns are great, nearly everyone should own one, but there is a lot of other things you can do to prevent criminal attack against yourself at home.  Pick up your mail and newspaper every day, and if you are not going to be home, have a neighbor pick them up. 

Have lights on in the house, even if you need to use a timer so they come on when you are not home.  A radio tuned to a talk station can give the illusion that someone is home.  A small barking dog can be a good way to alert you to an intruder.  Take a few steps to secure your home, before you go to guns; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
