Get Ready 'Cause Here I Come

 
Just in time inventory means that products get to the factory, grocery store, gasoline station just in time to be assembled or sold.  There is no more inventory on hand than what is needed to last until the next delivery date, which in some cases will be every day, or at most, every week.
 
So when the tornado comes, or the earthquake strikes, or the tsunami hits, there is only a three day supply of food in the supermarket, a two day supply of gasoline in the gas station.  How will you get supplies after the first day?  In most cases, there will be panic buying at best and looting or destruction at worst.
 
Then what do you do?  You have two main choices, you can hunker down or evacuate.  Sometimes, like in a flood, you have to leave.  Other times, like after an earthquake, it might be impossible to leave.  In any case, you need a plan, and supplies.  Make your plan now before the incident.  Gather your supplies, enough for at least a week, and a month is better, if you plan on surviving in some reasonable shape; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Lawfare in Scandinavia

http://frontpagemag.com/2013/dgreenfield/muslims-gang-rape-12-year-old-norwegian-girl-get-community-service/

All over Scandinavia, Muslims immigrants are raping European women.  They are receiving sentences of a fine or community service.  Some of these Muslim men are as young as 14 years old.  Some of them have multiple rape victims.  Some of the victims are as young as 12 years old.

These peaceful, law abiding nations have invited Muslims into their countries to save them from homelands that are war torn, poverty stricken and oppressive.  They have repaid that kindness, not by learning the language, or becoming good citizens of the host nation, but rather by going on crime sprees.

They are conducting lawfare.  They are continuing Jihad against the Western European nations by using the liberal nations own laws against them.  In these host nations, being convicted of a terrible crime has a social stigma and is rare.  To these Muslim criminals, they see criminal convictions as a badge of honor that they are bringing the West down, using our own laws against us; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

In God We Trust

Church-in-a-box … A Russian military Orthodox chapel

Back in the days of the Cold War, we used to speak about holding the line against the godless Communist aggressors.  Now that the Cold War is long over, the Russians are turning to God and we Americans are turning away from Him.

The Russian army developed this Russian Orthodox trailer for their troops.  Thanks to President Obama and his lack of leadership, foresight and ability to reach across the isle and compromise, military chaplains have been locked out of military bases during the government shutdown.  Other chaplains have been harassed and threatened because they refuse to perform homosexual marriages.

The United States calls itself, "one nation, under God."  We have drifted far away from that.  We need to get back to being one nation, under God.  If we could only follow the 10 Commandments think of how much better our country would be, no murder, no theft, alone would save tens of thousands of lives and increase our quality of life.  In God we trust; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Thanks to my daughter Sarah for the photo.

All About the Love

http://conservativetruth.org/article.php?id=3742

The progressives are always looking for more way to spread the love.  First it was people just loving each other, without benefit of clergy.  Who needs that piece of paper.  Then it was if you don't love the one you are married to, but love someone else, then drop them and go with your new love.  Because it's all about love.

Then it was about the love between two people of the same sex.  Because it was all about the love.  It was all about consenting adults.  Who cares what happens between two consenting people in the privacy of their own bedrooms?

The liberals like to move the goalposts.  Who cares what happens between two consenting people in the privacy of their own bedrooms?  Society cares, because if the two people are doing drugs, doing child molestation then it's not just about the love.  Unless, you are a progressive liberal.  They want to legalize drugs and child molestation.  All over the nation articles are being written that extol the virtues of the sexual exploitation of children, and that's not progressive, it's evil; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Courts Force Same Sex Marriage

http://onenewsnow.com//culture/2013/10/21/%E2%80%98judicial-oligarchy%E2%80%99-ushers-in-nj-same-sex-%E2%80%98marriages%E2%80%99#.Um70dU3n8fg

The United States is a democratic republic.  The people vote for representatives who then run the nation as the people want it run.  The will of the people has consistently been to reject same -sex marriage as a sham.  The people know that there is no such thing as same sex marriage.  Marriage is between two adults of the opposite sex.

The people know that marriage is a sacrament of God.  It is one man and one woman bound together to raise and care for a family.  Any other arrangement is not marriage and is not Biblical, natural, normal or proper.

Yet the fools who run our courts think they are so enlightened, so privileged, so above the common herd that they can rule from on high, like the pagan gods of Mt. Olympus.  As a result, they twist common sense, they obscure the natural laws and the historic precedents to force homosexual "marriage" on the people.  The state of New Jersey is the most recent state to make a mockery out of marriage.  It's no longer government with the consent of the governed, it's about judicial fiat, mandating what the people would not vote in for themselves; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Dead Dogs are No Fun

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/22/jerky-treats-dogs-cats-sick-dead-fda_n_4144476.html

Dog treats from Communist China have killed 600 American dogs and sickened over a thousand more.  We should immediately ban all pet foods from Communist China.  Dog food, cat food, fish food, bird food, horse and cow food; all animal foods and pet foods from Communist China, banned immediately.

Old people have had their dear pets die.  Little children have had their first doggie die.  Lonely single people no longer have someone who loves them meet them at the door.  Pets are a valuable part of peoples lives.  Some people only have their pets as friends and companions.

The Communist Chinese do this kind of thing all the time and we keep letting them get away with it.  Children's wooden toys painted with lead paint.  Time and again the Communist Chinese do bad things to Americans and we keep letting them do it; we need to take a hard line and stop all Chinese animal foods; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

De - Americanize?

http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/afp/131013/de-americanised-world-needed-after-us-shutdown-china-media-0

The Communist Chinese are claiming that the world needs to be de-Americanized.  They claim that all nations should be equal, but they really mean that all nations need to be subservient to the People's Republic of China.

The Communist Chinese are gradually trying to take over the world.  They have put industrial centers at each end of the Panama Canal.  They are working to create missiles to destroy American aircraft carriers.  They are building their own aircraft carriers to project Chinese power against Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, and most importantly, Taiwan.

The Communist Chinese are all over Africa, and unlike most Western Nations they are not opposed to bribery to gain an advantage.  As Communists, their only morality is to forward their Communist ideology.  The world does not need more totalitarian, Communist dictatorships; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Conspiracy

Much of what we see on the Internet is like an I Love Lucy episode.  Lucy overhears a part of a conversation, draws an outrageous conclusion, and then runs around acting stupid for the next 30 minutes.  People see some thing, they have a bit of information and rather than try to verify it, they make assumptions and run around for 30 minutes doing something stupid.
 
I have been a soldier and a cop and a security guard and I know a lot about how business and government work.  I majored in history in college and so I know how things used to be.  President Obama is not a Muslim, he is not a communist.  He is a fool who honestly thinks he is doing what is best for the nation.  He has no knowledge of history, he does not know how international politics works, he does not understand how unique the USA is in history. 
 
He does not understand business.  He calls himself a Christian, but I suspect he is only a nominal Christian who never really gives god any thought at all.  He is dangerous to our economy, our liberties, and our rights.  We need to oppose him on nearly everything.  But we should not allow ourselves to be distracted by silly conspiracies and machinations that are not happening.  Two people can keep a secret, as long as one of them is dead; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Women in Combat

A recent article was extolling the virtues of the new US Navy aircraft carrier, the Gerald Ford.

For the first time the Navy will have no urinals on this carrier. Gender neutral toilets mean berthing can be swapped between male and female without concern and one unit means fewer spare parts and repair.
 
A toilet has a lot more parts than a urinal and uses a lot more water than a urinal, so that's putting the happy face on a problem.  You can also put more urinals in the same amount of space as a toilet and they are cheaper and faster to use than a toilet.
 
Women on warships has been a abject failure and is a political decision, not a military one.  In the Gulf War several ships lost large percentages of their crews because they chose to get pregnant rather than stay and fight.  How did that happen when crewmembers are not supposed to be having sex with each other?
 
Sexual harassment and inclusion have become more important than the ability to fight.  Commanders are relieved because they are not respectful to women, how would that have worked in WWII, would General Eisenhower have been relieved of his command for having an affair with his female driver?  Or Truscott, or Admiral King, or Gavin, or Bradley?  Today, they probably would have been relieved and we may have extended or even lost the war as a result.  Women have no place in combat; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Space

http://www.thespacereview.com/article/2369/1

As the United States continues it's decline as a superpower, there is another opportunity for us to reverse that trend.  The International Space Station is wearing out.  It is possible to keep it in space for a few more years, perhaps even a decade, but doing so does not serve Americas space interest.

The United States needs to aggressively commercialize space exploration.  We need to encourage American companies to invest in and commercialize space.  The government should insure that companies that go into space invest their money here, hire Americans and bring the money earned back to the USA. 

One way to do that is to cut taxes, and de-regulate industry, not only for space but all companies.  Companies should not be looking over their shoulder every time their hire and fire, promote or demote an employee because they are worried about a lawsuit.  They should be able to do that for any reason or no reason.  They need to keep a fair share of the money they make, and not pay it in taxes.  The Income Tax needs to be decreased and simplified.  Foreign nations should not be encouraged to assist us, so that the advantages would stay in America; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Communist Submarines

http://www.defencetalk.com/china-completes-development-of-new-ssn-49153/

Unpatriotic American businessmen shut down a factory in your neighborhood.  Excessive regulation caused by politicians who don't know how business works made it very difficult for businesses to expand and to grow.  At every turn the business was sued for discrimination, for environmental problems or some other reason.  Even when they won most of the lawsuits the time, effort, and potential cost was excessive.  So they moved the business out of the country.

Rather than move to another state with a better business climate, or to another free, democratic nation, these businessmen moved the company to Communist Chinese.  The Communists learned modern business and industrial technique.  They gained Western capital to expand their countries infrastructure.

Then they shipped those products back to the United States and we purchased them because either the products were not made in the USA anymore or the Communist products were so much cheaper that we could not pass up a bargain.  The Communists then used the profits and the taxes to build brand new nuclear submarines with torpedoes and missiles on board to threaten our allies and yes, even America.  We have only ourselves to blame, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Call Evil Good, and Good Evil

http://www.mrctv.org/videos/national-cathedral-dean-homophobia-and-heterosexism-are-sin

Isaiah 5:20

King James Version (KJV)
"20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"

Yet today there are those who call homosexual behavior normal and call normal sexual behavior abnormal.  The church in many places is falling into sin.  Once churches begin to ordain women as priests, then their Biblical standards fall away and nothing is truly forbidden or sacred any longer. 

Then in the name of fairness they look to homosexuals and permit them to become priests.  Later, they look to homosexual marriage as "normal."  They refuse to see sin as sin.  They marry men and women who marry and divorce and marry and divorce until they are participating in serial monogamy. 

Nowhere in the Bible are their female Jewish priests, nor apostles who are women.  There are many married couples and none of them are same sex couples.  God set us these things for our examples.  God specifically called for his priests to be men.  He punished Sodom, because of their sins.  We violate Gods' laws at our peril as a nation; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Taiwan vs Communist China

http://www.defencetalk.com/taiwan-warns-of-potential-strategic-shift-in-east-asia-49344/

Taiwan warns that Communist China will have enough military power to attack and take over the island in only a few years.  The United States has always guaranteed the safety and independence of Taiwan.  They have been a stalwart ally of the United States.

The United States should be selling new, modern weapons to Taiwan.  President Obama refuses to sell the newest weapons to Taiwan.  He is fine with sending weapons all over the Muslim Middle East, but won't send any to a long term peaceful ally who faces invasion.

The Communist Chinese have made no secret of wanting to invade Taiwan if necessary to take over the island.  This has been their goal for over 50 years.  Only the strength of the United States has been enough to prevent that from happening.  Once again, the United States has proven to be a wavering ally.  We need to cut imports from Communist China and do the right thing by Taiwan; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Nuclear Weapons

http://defense-update.com/20131006_russian-strategic-missile-force-rvsn-modernizing.html?utm_source=feedblitz&utm_medium=FeedBlitzRss&utm_campaign=feedburner/defenseupdate

The United States is dismantling nuclear weapons.  The USA is not developing and fielding new systems to replace old systems.  President Reagan called this concept "build down."  Build new and better, more accurate weapons while decreasing the overall numbers.  President Obama has a different idea.  Don't build more weapons, just dismantle the weapons we have, no matter what improvements our potential enemies make to their weapons.

Iran, North Korea, Communist China, and Russia are all potential enemies with nuclear weapons programs.  Communist China in particular has a mysterious program, and no one knows how many or what kinds of weapons they have or are working on.

Iran and North Korea have made threats to use nuclear weapons against the United States and our allies.  Rather than respond effectively, President Obama has simple stated over and over that he wants all nuclear weapons to go away.  Give up our greatest advantage, while our potential enemies grow stronger, that's not a good idea; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Christian Persecution

http://onenewsnow.com//culture/2013/10/08/ten-commandments-display-back-up-near-supreme-court-after-vandals-toppled-it#.UmB8X03n8fg

A private religious organization has an 800 pound granite stone with the Ten Commandments on it.  The stone sits across from the Supreme Court.  Several people who don't believe in religious tolerance, Christian ethics, obeying the law decided they don't like it so they pushed the stone face down onto the ground.

The police have video of the incident and are investigating.  They have two persons of interest.  It is interesting that whenever Christians in this nation are exercising their rights they are often attacked by people on the other side.  Recently a cross that stood on public ground, unmolested for decades was toppled by anti-Christian vandals.

A man was distributing Christian literature in a public place, a DMV office parking lot, and was arrested.  Had he been distributing condoms or advertisements for a strip club, certainly their would have been no arrest.  Yet, because he was a Christian, he was arrested.  Eventually, the courts decided in his favor, but only after massive court costs.  Christian persecution by criminals and by government is going on right here in the United States; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Chaplains in the Military

http://www.albertmohler.com/2013/09/17/can-evangelical-chaplains-serve-god-and-country-the-crisis-arrives/

President Obama is destroying the United States Armed Forces.  Many chaplains are unable to perform homosexual same sex marriages.  They are unable to lie and claim that homosexual activity is not sinful.  As a result, they will be hounded by those in the military who are trying to call evil good and good evil.

Chaplains will be required to violate the teachings of their churches and permit sinful actions rather than condemn them.  Soldiers who go to those chaplains for guidance about sin will be unable to give proper guidance without being considered as hateful; because sin has been normalized by President Obama.

Eventually, such chaplains will be forced from the service.  They will be required to condone, respect and participate in acts they denominations consider evil.  Homosexual marriage is an abomination and an evil.  It is an oxymoron, as two people of the same gender cannot be married.  Marriage is a sacrament of the church and is not subject to the whim of a transitory politician like our president, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Cut Science to Save Money

http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/End_of_an_era_for_AFSSS_999.html

President Obama continues to degrade the American ability to operate in space and to defend the nation.  The US Air Force unit that had the job of scanning Earth orbit and tracking items in space.  Since President Obama killed the American space program, he has now killed this program as well.

Other assets will take over some of these duties, but it's not the same as having dedicated people performing this function.  President Obama has never supported the space program in any form, and space is often not popular with many of his supporters.  The Air Force will save $14 million dollars. 

At a time when the national debt limit is $17 trillion dollars, I am glad we could cut $14 million.  I am sure markets will rebound at the news of this huge cutback.  As usual, the government is nibbling at small projects that do science rather than do anything that will really aid our economy, create jobs, make our national defense stronger or allow us to regain our previous position as the leaders in space exploration; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Russian General Winter

http://en.ria.ru/military_news/20131014/184143129/Russian-Commandos-Train-for-Arctic-Combat.html

While American and Western European liberals bemoan "global warming," it's not unpopular everywhere.  Russia is a large and cold nation.  They have many hungry mouths to feed.  It's difficult to sail from one side of the nation to the other.  If the polar ice melts even a little bit, it could mean a lot of good for them.

Imagine the benefits to Russia of being able to sail a ship from Europe to Siberia for most, maybe even all of the year.  Moving oil and other bulk cargos by ship is just about the cheapest way to move them.  Imagine a warm world where Siberia is a vast growing area, able to grow one or two harvests per year.  Having a massive food surplus would give great power to Russia.

The Russians are training their army in fighting in Arctic combat. While the Russians have always been good in cold weather war, the Arctic has special requirements.  So cold your motor oil freezes, your windshield becomes brittle, and your rubber tires flat on the bottom when you park for a short time.  As the Arctic becomes warmer, resources now hidden will be revealed and more accessible.  As usual, President Obama makes speeches while the Russians take action.  Our Alaskan National Guard should be strengthened.  Our tanks and armored vehicles need to built in specialized Arctic versions, and our aircraft modified in sufficient numbers to operate a credible force in Arctic regions; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Communist China Wants Asutralian Oil


 
President Obama has gutted our military.  He has cut aircraft carriers from the fleet.  He has degraded our militaries combat power because he added women to combat units.  He damaged morale because he added open homosexuals.  He has cut procurement of new weapons.  He wants to cut our nuclear weapons down to zero.
 
Communist China is increasing military spending in double digits amounts for years now.  They have developed new weapons technologies, including anti-satellite technologies, and anti-aircraft carrier missiles.  We don't know how many nuclear weapons they have.
 
Communist China is also looking to expand their holdings in the Pacific.  As Americans withdraw from the Pacific the Communist Chinese will move to fill that gap.  I suspect Australia is the long term goal.  They have plenty of people to fill it.  Communist China is not our friend, they are not yet our enemy, but they are dangerous; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Shut Down

http://bangordailynews.com/2013/10/07/news/hancock/acadia-national-park-rangers-cite-seven-for-violating-closure-order/

The government is shut down but there are still rangers around to give tickets to people who dare to enter a public park.  How come during a shut down we have rangers to give tickets to people who are not doing anything wrong, but we can't control our borders?

Maybe we should declare the land along the Mexico / USA border a national park and have park rangers patrol it.  Then whenever Mexicans cross the border, even during a shutdown, they will be arrested.

Our nation is drowning in debt, yet we still permit millions of illegal aliens to remain here.  We are trillions of dollars in debt, yet we think our problems will be solved if we just borrow a little more.  We need to cut the Federal government back to a more manageable level.  The Federal government should cut out the Department of Energy, and Department of Education and save the money; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Communist Chinese Satellite Weapons

http://defensetech.org/2013/10/03/chinese-satellite-grabs-another-in-orbit/

The Communist Chinese are working on satellite weapons.  They know that our space ability makes it much easier for the United States to project power.  We communicate with satellites.  We spy on our enemies with satellites to look down on them and to listen to communications.

President Obama foolishly stopped the American manned space program.  For the first time since the 1950's the USA has been unable to send men into orbit.  We used to be able to send astronauts into space to repair broken satellites.  We can't do that now.

The Communist Chinese can do that with robots.  We don't have that technology either.  The Communist Chinese are trying to develop techniques and technologies that will allow them to beat the United States in a regional war.  They want to be able to capture Taiwan despite the presence of American aircraft carriers, they have been developing anti-carrier missiles.  A portion of every dollar we spend on goods produced in Communist China goes to help the Communist Chinese military; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Abortion

Last Sunday I stood for life.  MRS Bunkermeister and I stood on a street corner with signs in opposition to abortion.  There were over 100 people there, also protesting against abortion, in favor of life.

The pro-abortion people tell us that abortion is just the removal of unwanted tissue.  They say it's not a human life.   Yet, when pro-life people ask that woman look at an ultrasound of their pregnancy, they fight as hard as they can against it.  Why is that?  It's because women who look at an ultrasound of their "tissue" often change their mind and don't have an abortion.  If it's about choice, then why do pro-abortion rights people care if people choose life?

The reason is not because pro-abortion are pro-choice, it's because they are pro-abortion.  They want women to have abortion, not just the right to abortion, but to have abortions.  They want abortions because they make money off of abortions.  Hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars go to pay for abortions, and President Obama and his Obamacare will give abortion providers even more money, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Be Prepared

http://www.stolinsky.com/wordpress/index.php/2013/09/08/technology-unreliable-servant-dangerous-master/

Computers are wonderful tools, but we do a poor job with our tools sometimes.  People often have too much access to information, Bradley Manning, the homosexual, private who released information to the media is an excellent example.  He was upset about his treatment in the Army and so he was able to use his computer to access vast amounts of information that he had no reason to be able to obtain for legitimate purposes.

As the USA becomes more wired, more hooked in to the Internet, it also becomes more vulnerable to disruption.  Our enemies, in Iran, or North Korea, or Islamic Terrorists or others could use this interconnection to disrupt our economy or even our lives.  Traffic signals are often controlled by computer.  Imagine if all the traffic lights turned red and stayed that way.  Think about the disruption that would cause.

Supermarkets get deliveries everyday.  If the electricity was cut off by a computer disruption, how long would your supermarkets be able to provide food, if the trucks can't get gasoline because the pumps won't pump gas without electricity.  We need better anti-virus software.  We need better planning for terrorist attacks and better civil defense.  We need more resistant electronics that won't be damaged by EMP.  We need to be better prepared; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Regulations

http://www.upi.com/Top_News/Analysis/Outside-View/2013/09/17/Outside-View-Obama-policies-make-inequality-a-lot-worse/UPI-43721379390580/#ixzz2fBPf6wPb

The Occupy Movement and the Obama Campaign made the charge that the Republicans are the party of the rich.  Since President Obama has been in office, the rich have gotten richer and the poor have gotten poorer.  The top 10% hold half of the nations wealth.

I have no problem with people being rich.  I think all Americans should be rich.  I think if we could unleash free enterprise, there would be a lot more rich Americans.  The government regulates too much of our economy.  We should look to the pasts to draw conclusions for the future.  In the past there was much less regulation and far more ability to make money.

Businesses need to be able to start without the government interfering at every step.  We need a tax structure that is not so complicated.  Every dime Americans spend on tax preparation is money wasted.  Every special tax district is an unnecessary complication for business.  We need to repeal laws not write more; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Insane

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/09/rich-lowry-gun-control-opinion-97025.html

A crazy man went on a firearms rampage at the Washington Naval Yard.  Now another crazy man has set himself on fire at the Washington Mall.  Despite all the talk about doing a better job of dealing with people who are mentally ill, these two incidents show we are doing a poor job of helping them.

People who are mentally ill and a danger to themselves or to others should be kept in confinement until they are no longer a danger to others or to themselves.  In California, such people can be held for up to three days, but after that, they must be released unless they are judged to still be a danger.

The problem with that system is that they are nearly always considered "well" unless they want to stay and they have the financial means to keep them in the hospital.  How many people have to be killed by the insane before we find a way to lock them up for their safety and the safety of others?  There needs to be a system of review so people are not locked up for no good medical reason, but we can't continue to have killing sprees by the insane and do nothing about it.  That's just crazy; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Army

The US Army has from the beginning had to choose between fighting an insurgency or a full scale war.
 
Fight Indians or fight Germany?
Fight Pancho Villa or fight Nazis?
Fight the Soviet Union or fight the NVA?
 
In peacetime it's expensive to maintain a large powerful standing army with the latest gear.
In a major war, you can't do without it.  In wartime, the Army gets tailored to fit the battle we are fighting now.  So in Viet Nam and Iraq and Afghanistan we are lighter, swifter, nimble, deployable and mine resistant as well as air transportable.  But if we had to fight the Soviet Union, or Russia, or Communist China, or North Korea we need to be armored, powerful, heavy, strong, capable, in order to win that difficult war.
 
Tanks are of limited value in an insurgency.  They are essential in a major war.  The first part of Iraq was a major land conflict and we rolled over the enemy, because we had been planning to fight that war since the beginning of the Cold War.  We even trained in the desert.  The second part of that war required going back to the tactics of Viet Nam and the Indian Wars.  Small patrols, strongpoints, winning hearts and minds.
 
The bean counters don't like to keep two Armies in being to be able to fight both wars, so we always cut back on one or the other.  That's why we planned to replace all the M113s but when the Cold War ended there did not seem to be much of a hurry and so many projects languished.  When the War on Terror happened, we spend the money on other things.  We need to maintain two armies, and be able to expand our Army on a moments notice by keeping assembly lines open; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Shut It Down

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/10/05/Feds-Try-to-Close-the-OCEAN-Because-of-Shutdown

The Federal Government is shut down.  I say leave it shut down.  The nation is at war and has been since 2001.  What have you done for the war effort?  How about if we shut down all non-essential government services until the war is over, that is, until we win?

The President is simply trying to play politics and is making sure that every project that is popular is getting high profile cuts and the main stream media is right there with him.  I don't think we should be paying the Federal workers who are not working either.  When private employers send employees home they don't get paid.  Let them take vacation, or cut some holiday pay.  No work, no pay.

Maybe they should start laying them off and cutting positions.  If these jobs are non-essential and we are trillions of dollars in debt, maybe we should only be doing essential jobs.  I suspect most of us don't miss a thing with the government shut down, I don't; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Homosexuals got their photographs taken in front of numerous Roman Catholic church altars.  Then they got all set to exhibit those photos in a gallery.  The Church threatened them with a lawsuit to prevent the exhibition.  There is a law in Italy that prevents people from disrespecting a religion.

Then this group of photos gets posted on the Internet.  Homosexual behavior is condemned by the Roman Catholic Church, it's considered a sin if it is done in thought, word or deed.  Despite this, homosexual activists seem to think that they should be accepted in the Church anyway.

Their minions in the main stream media keep hounding the Pope and other church officials as if they have the ability to change Church doctrine.  The doctrines of the Church on such matters are immutable and have been the same for 2,000 years and were generally the same for the Hebrews prior to that.  Just because it's fashionable, does not mean it's acceptable; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Courts

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Onion_Field

I am re-reading the Joseph Wambaugh book, The Onion Field.  It's a story of two career criminals who kidnap two LAPD officers and murder one, for no reason, while the other escapes.  They are both captured within a day, and both confess, the officer who escaped provided eyewitness testimony to the kidnapping and murder.  They were both sentenced to death.

The liberal criminal loving courts overturned the death penalty claiming it was cruel and unusual punishment.  A police officer was kidnapped, taken miles away, shot in the face, then shot four more times in the chest and the death penalty is a cruel or unusual punishment for that crime?

The courts have done little in the United States for the last 70 years to forward the desires of the average American.  They have constantly thwarted the clear will of the people, restricted our rights and denied common sense.  They have even, in some cased, relied on Sharia Law and International Law to develop an excuse to let criminals back onto the streets.  Our criminal justice system needs a complete overhaul that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Shut it Down

http://onenewsnow.com//ap/politics/govt-shutdown-no-progress-on-ending-stalemate#.UkxoA03n8fg

The Federal Government has been shut down over funding for ObamaCare.  The President says he has no reason to negotiate.  He also says that elections have consequences and he will do what he was elected to do for his constituents.  That also holds true for the Republicans.

I hope they keep the government shut down for months.  If we only open essential services then the rest of them are unnecessary in hard times.  Millions are out of work and our debt is sky high.  Why then is the government providing services that are not absolutely necessary?

If a particular service is really needed, then the Congress should pass funding for those specific services one at a time.  Perhaps it's a good time to weed out more than just ObamaCare.  The Democrats have played this same card before, they have failed to fund things Republican presidents wanted and now the Republicans are doing the same to a Democrat President.  It's the way the system is supposed to work; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Gun Free Zones

http://www.newswithviews.com/JBWilliams/williams259.htm

Massacres happen in gun free zones all over the world.  In Nigeria, fifty college students asleep in their dorm rooms were murdered by Islamist Extremists as they slept.  In Kenya, in a shopping mall, shoppers were gunned down, or captured and executed if they were not Muslim, by, Muslim Extremists.

In the US a Muslim Extremist at Fort Hood, Texas gunned down US Army solders, who were unarmed and in a gun free zone.  Now at the Navy Shipyard, another gun free zone, Americans were gunned down by a lone madman.  Since President Obama the following mass murders have happened, each one in a gun free zone:

Ø     April 3, 2009 - 13 killed, 4 injured: Binghamton, N.Y.
Ø     Nov. 5, 2009 - 13 killed, 32 injured: Ft. Hood, Texas
Ø     Aug. 3, 2010 - 8 killed, 2 injured: Manchester, Conn.
Ø     Jan. 8, 2011 - 6 killed, 11 injured: Tucson, Ariz.
Ø     Oct. 12, 2011 - 8 killed, 1 injured: Seal Beach, Calif.
Ø     April 2, 2012 - 7 killed, 3 injured: Oakland
Ø     July 20, 2012 - 12 killed, 58 injured: Aurora, Colo.
Ø     Aug. 5, 2012 - 6 killed, 3 injured: Oak Creek, Wis.
Ø     Sept. 28, 2012 - 6 killed, 2 injured: Minneapolis, Minn.
Ø     Oct. 21, 2012 - 3 dead, 4 injured: Brookfield, Wis.
Ø     Dec. 14, 2012 - 27 killed, one injured: Newtown, Conn.
Ø     June 7, 2013 - 5 killed: Santa Monica
Ø     Sept. 16, 2013 - 13 killed, 3 injured: Washington, D.C.
 
Anytime a location is considered a gun free zone, it should be set up like an airport.  Everyone is screened, all their baggage checked, and no one gets in without screening.  Armed guards have to be everywhere to insure no one with a gun can enter and do damage.  Otherwise a gun free zone is just a killing zone.  Perhaps it's time to realize that a gun free zone only gathers victims together so that those who have guns can kill them; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
