Truth

President Reagan was elected and re-elected because he told the truth as he saw it.  He did not pander to his audience.  He tried to explain why conservative principles and American Exceptionalism make this a great nation.  

That's why President Reagan won elections. He was plain spoken and said what he had to say. At least if you disagreed with him, you knew where he stood and you knew he was not going to re-imagine himself or evolve on issues.  Even those who did not vote for him could respect his honesty.

President Obama campaigned on a pro-marriage platform, he also said that raising the debt ceiling showed a lack of leadership, the also said he would close Gitmo and criticized President Bush for keeping it open. Once he got power, he reversed himself on those issues.  Republicans need to follow President Reagans example and not try to be all things to all people.  They should try and be conservative Republicans who believe in America; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Gun Rights

Who in Germany in 1930 would expected total gun confiscation and death camps within the next 12 years?  We need guns to defend ourselves against tyranny, because you cannot predict the future.  The Second Amendment is the final protection for the other amendments.   Do you want the police to have the ability to lock up anyone they think is a potential threat?  Do you really want to give them that much power?   California already has some of the toughest gun laws in the nation.  

This killer in California who killed six people, also used knives to kill three people. Some of the worst mass murders in the USA have been with gasoline in arson fires, airplanes, dynamite, and automobiles. Why should we punish the innocent for the acts of an evil, demented young man? 

Should there be a ten day waiting period for an abortion? Should people be required to undergo a background check for an abortion?  Should you have to be 21 years old to have an abortion?  Abortion is not even mentioned in the Constitution, yet people on the left have kittens if you mention even the slightest restrictions on abortion rights.  Why should gun rights be any different; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Gun Control

After their guns were seized by the government, the British and Australian people started losing more an more rights.  In the UK hate speech is a public offense in the UK and they have metal detectors set up on streets to look for weapons. 

Yet, despite this, criminals are getting worse, and the police are now often carrying guns.  Look at the two Muslims who murdered a British soldier in the street in broad daylight. He was helpless to defend himself.  The police response was fast, but pointless in terms of his survival.

Why do we trust our government with nuclear weapons but we don't trust our next door neighbor to carry a ten shot pistol in his pocket? When seconds count, remember, the police are only minutes away; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No More Gun Control

Police response takes about 90 seconds in the best communities. The average shooting takes about three seconds and happens less than six feet away. You can't even dial 911 that fast. If I trust a good citizen with the care of babies, the ability to drive a car, the right to vote in elections, then why are they not responsible to carry a gun? 

Criminals by definition don't care that it is illegal for them to carry a gun. Guns are 100+ year old technology and a decent gun can be made in any home machine shop or garage. There are as many guns in the USA as there are people and a quality gun will last at least 100 years. You will never get rid of the guns here. 

Every nation that confiscates it's people's guns simply becomes more and more repressive. Every Communist nation, Nazi Germany confiscated their peoples' guns. In the UK people not only have had their guns taken away, but are no longer allowed to use force in self defense and they are considering bans on knives.  The largest genocide in recent years was done all by machete, in Rwanda, over a million people killed, without any guns.  Their victims did not have guns either; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No More Gun Control

I have spent my whole life as a soldier, security guard and police officer and have been a firearms instructor for over 40 years. In California we have some of the strictest gun laws in the nation. We require background checks, and waiting periods. 

We limit the number of guns you can buy at one time and almost no one here has a concealed carry permit unless they are a police officer. We even have a special police unit that raids peoples homes and takes their guns away from them if they are judged to be mentally incompetent. Yet we still have the most murders of any other state. 

 Our prisons are so full that we have to release criminals early. The average person is unable to defend themselves from attack. As a woman, old person, or disabled person, how can you defend yourself from an attack by one or two young men, unless you have a gun?  A gun is your only hope in those circumstances; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

China vs Japan

http://www.defensenews.com/article/20140426/DEFREG03/304260026/1001/DEFSECT

In 1935 almost no one would guess that the Japanese would attack Pearl Harbor in 1941 or that the Germans would invade Poland in 1939.  Yet, now looking back on historical events, it seems almost inevitable that these battles would happen.

Japan has placed a radar on one of their islands.  It is in the South China Sea, part of the area Communist China has suddenly claimed as their property.  Now that the United States has for years showed weakness, vacillation , and failed to back up our allies, the Chinese are moving in on our friends in Asia.

Japan does this, Communist China does that.  The United States is the only one powerful enough to stop the inevitable march to war.  Yet, we constantly bow to China's wishes.  We allow China to use unfair trade practices, espionage and threats to weaken our economy.  We need to stand up for the American middle class, for our allies in Asia and stand up to Communist China; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No More Gun Control

 http://www.tpnn.com/2014/05/26/santa-barbara-gunmans-family-calls-for-gun-control/

A deranged young man stabbed and shot a number of people here in California this weekend.  Already the liberals are saying this would not happened if there had been more gun control.  California already has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, obviously they don't work.

Rather than continuing to focus on doing more of what does not work, why not work on fixing the problem.  We need better care for mentally ill people.  The parents of this killer knew he was a problem, and yet he was still driving around armed in public ready to kill people.

We need people to get married and stay married too.  This killer, like nearly all the young men who committed mass murder, are from broken homes.  Liberal like free love and no fault divorce so they don't want to look at what causes these men to become killers.  Men need to marry women and stay married and take care of their kids.  Kids need to go to church and learn values that say every life is precious, every soul is unique; that man is created in the image of God and should not be wantonly destroyed.  More gun control will do nothing to stop this type of deranged killer who will use a knife, a car, a bomb or other weapon till; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Mental Illness and Guns

The United States has a problem with mental health.  Mass murderers are not gun crazy, they are not gun nuts.  They are generally, just crazy, just nuts.  They are nearly always either seeing a mental health professional or they are refusing to see one, even though everyone around they says then need to see a doctor.

Our mental health system is broken in part because our mental health professionals do a poor job.  They time and again make mental health decisions based on politics, money, the law, or some other basis unrelated to science.

We as a society need to get the mentally ill homeless off the streets.  The insane students out of the schools and the mentally dangerous out of society.  We need to do better research into mental illness and it needs to be preformed without political agendas.  We need to stop trying to take guns out of the hands of innocent citizens and do a better job of keeping them away from the mentally ill, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Transgender Soldiers

http://bigstory.ap.org/article/apnewsbreak-transgender-troop-ban-faces-scrutiny

A panel has said that the US military should drop the ban on transgender troops.  As usual, there is not a single military reason to drop this ban.  Not a single soldier said if only we had transgender troops at the Invasion of Normandy on D-Day we would have defeated the Germans in half the time.

The panel lies and says there is no medical reason for transgender troops not to be permitted into the military.  There are several reasons this is not true.  The first reason is that they generally require a lifetime supply of hormones and other drugs to keep them alive and comfortable.  If we permit transgender troops into the military then the next thing we will be doing is paying for them to have their operations, both under military medical care and later under the Veterans Administration care.

Finally, the main reason is that people who are transgender are mentally ill.  They believe they are not male or female like they were born, but are something else.  Mentally ill people do not belong in the military.  They psychological community has for political purposed decided that transgender people are mentally normal and physically ill.  Getting your genitals surgically mutilated will not change your sex; your DNA remains the same; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

NewSpeak

Liberals like to use NewSpeak.  Terms that are like those from the book 1984.  A dis-topian future society that causes people to speak one way and mean something else.  It requires people to maintain a fiction that something they know to be a lie is actually the truth.

Pro-choice is such a term.  It indicates that they favor people having the ability, the right, to choose between multiple options.  It sounds as if it is a moral positive.  We have elections and we get to choose.  We have multiple products in the open marketplace and we can select what we want.

What pro-choice actually means is the ability to murder another person.  Pro-choice refuses to admit that there are two people involved.  Pro-choice means that one person will decide life or death over another person.  Pro-choice has almost become a mandatory event, that is to be a liberal woman does not only mean that you may select to murder another person, but that you will make no other selection; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Use Marijuana to Make Paper

I keep reading on Facebook that people want marijuana to be made legal.  They post all the important things we can do with marijuana like make paper, make fuel and make industrial textiles.

I am sure that most of the people who support legalization are interested in the opportunity to make paper, fuel and industrial textiles.  It's illegal because people abuse it and spend their lives stoned all the time.  Remember all these illegal drugs, heroin, cocaine, marijuana, and such were legal at one time.  Until recently they were illegal everywhere in the world for about 100 years.

Before we legalize them again, we need to consider why they were made illegal the first time.  Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it's mistakes; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Godzilla

The Wife and I went to see Godzilla. It was great! Not only was it the best Godzilla I have ever seen, but it was one of the best movies I have ever seen. There are several surprises, and a good solid story. The US military are depicted as well trained, and brave. There is lots of military equipment, the special effects are terrific and the acting is very good.

I have seen almost all of the Godzilla movies and own about half on VHS or DVD. This is the best of all of them. In some ways it's like Cloverfield with much of the movie focused on the people and told from their point of view.

The trailer shows a few moments that seem rather odd, but they make perfect sense in context. I will certainly be getting the DVD.  There are also several homages to the original movie.  A newspaper headline declares "Godzilla, King of the Monsters" was my favorite, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Monday, May 19, 2014

Movies

Godzilla was a great movie.  The American military looked good.  They are shown fighting the good fight, coming up with innovative solutions to problems.  Liberals don't like movies that make the American military look good. 

That's why since 9/11 we have only had one or two pro-USA movies and plenty like Hurt Locker where the "hero" goes AWOL, or Three Kings where the "heroes" are criminals.  Hollywood is very liberal. 

I can't name three pro-American military movies made about the War on Terror since 9/11. World Trade Center and Zero Dark Thirty are the only two major motion pictures I can think of about 9/11 that were pro-American.  Too bad that in 13 years Hollywood can't bring themselves to support the troops, or the nation that defends them; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Lemonade

http://www.realfarmacy.com/cops-shut-down-lemonade-stand/ 

I saw this on Facebook recently.  It happened many months ago, but it goes around as if it just happened.  Watch the video. This was a group of adults who set up a lemonade stand on the grounds of the Capitol Building. There is no commercial activity allowed there. 

Clearly the group was intending to get arrested from the moment they arrived. This was not two ten year old girls on their front lawn. The cops showed up and tried to get them to leave and they refused. 

There is a growing number of professional protestors who violate the law intending to be arrested and getting video to show they were abused or their rights infringed.  Then they tell a heavily slanted version of their story that they were just a little lemonade stand.  This was on the Capital lawn, the cops did not know if this was a diversion for a terrorist attack, the start of a riot or any number of other potential problems.  People like this cost the taxpayers money, waste the time of the police and generally make a nuisance of themselves; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Jobs

http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2014/may/15/pratt-whitney-relocation-texas-florida-georgia/

Pratt and Whitney makes aircraft parts.  They have been in business for decades and have had good profits.  The cost of doing business in California has gotten so high that they have had to close their major plant in San Diego.  The California unemployment numbers are still high, and even worse is the massive number of people who have simply given up looking for work.

Over 500 people will lose their jobs as California continues to loose jobs, particularly in manufacturing.  We have been told that low wage jobs will go overseas and to Mexico, but we would all maintain high dollar value, high technology jobs here in America.

California has had such a poor business climate that Texas, Florida and Georgia are taking our jobs for themselves.  That leaves Californians without those high tech jobs we were told we would have.  High taxes and heavy regulations are killing our jobs and destroying our middle class; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Natural Order of Things

Decades ago men were paid more than women because women were expected to stay home and raise the children and men were expected to provide for their families.  Women who did work often lived with their parents, siblings or other relatives, so their living expenses were shared with others.

Then women demanded "equal pay for equal work."  Of course like many liberal ideas, that was not really what they wanted.  Radical women wanted "equal pay for the same job" even if their work was not as good.  So the male coal miner and the female coal miner were to be paid the same, even if the female was not as productive in this physically demanding job.

Radical feminists also wanted to be able to live alone and not depend on their family for support, even their husband.  That would make divorce or single parent households easier to manage.  Much of this was really about the destruction of the traditional family.

The labor pool has also been effectively doubled, thereby forcing down wages as the demand for jobs increased.  So now both parents frequently have to work in order to support a family.  These are some of the reasons why the middle class has suffered so much in the last 50 years.  The destruction of the traditional American family and the American middle class has taken a long time and continues to this day; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Japanese Self Defense Forces

http://www.defensenews.com/article/20140511/DEFREG03/305110018/Japan-Take-Major-Step-Toward-Collective-Self-Defense

When the United States fails to keep up it's defense commitments and fails to provide leadership in the free world, other nations step in to fill the gap.  Communist China has been allowed to us American money and American jobs to build up their military power.

As a result, Communist China is using this new power to bully their neighbors.  President Obama says the US will send Marines to Australia to bolster their defenses, and allow the US to project power in the East faster.  Yet, President Obama failed to send all the troops promised and  even those were only a token amount.

So Japan has realized they may be on their own in a conflict with Communist China.  So Japan is looking to work towards collective defense with some of their neighbors.  They are working to be able legally and practically to project power beyond Japan.  All of this because of the continued foreign policy failures of the United States; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

School Spending

A recent study found that the United States students are 36th in the world compared to other countries.  Some people blame the United States for not spending enough.  We are not 36th because we don't spend enough. 
 
Roman Catholic schools spend much less per student and yet they turn out excellent students. If we spent more time on math and science and less on putting condoms on bananas we might have higher international scores. We spend more money on welfare and education than we ever have.  
 
Yet our test scores are declining and our people are poor because we no longer follow the values of hard work and individual responsibility that are still followed in places like Japan and China.  We spend too much time worrying in school that a five year old boy kissed a five year old girl, or that a little boy ate his pop tart into the shape of a gun.  We need to spend more time worrying about reading, writing, and arithmetic; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Free College Education

Recently some friends were discussing that Nordic countries give free college educations to their citizens.  They remarked that we should do that here.  Well, nothing is free, someone is paying for it. Are your taxes too low? If you did not choose to go to college should you pay for some other kid to go to college? 

We have free education through high school, and we have low cost city colleges and community colleges and state colleges and universities. We have the freedom to go to UCLA or USC but you get the benefit, you pay for it yourself, don't expect someone else to pay for your schooling. 

Does most scientific innovation come from Norway and Sweden or from the USA? Or all those Norwegians going to college to study 17th Century Dutch lesbian poetry?  The United States has the best schools in the world, that's why people come here from everywhere to study, but the cost of excellence is not cheap; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Police, Citizens, Criminals

How can we insure that our local police are always on the side of the local people?  There are several things we can do to preserve our liberties and keep our police properly equipped with the needed equipment.

First, insist on local control of police agencies.  Federal money and State money often bring Federal or State control.  The Federal and State government should provide free or low cost surplus equipment to local agencies but that equipment must be without strings of any kind.  Federal and State governments should also provide intelligence and scientific assistance when requested, but again without strings.

Second, local police should be limited to those weapons that are legal for purchase and use by local citizens.  If local citizens can't get a concealed weapons permit, then neither should the police.  If local citizens can't get high capacity magazines, then neither should police.  If local citizens can buy automatic weapons, then neither should police.  Police are not fighting a war they are fighting crime and they should be limited to the same weapons citizens are allowed to carry.  Citizens face the same criminals in their world as the police; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Gun Control

Recently people have noticed that many police agencies have been buying more and more armored vehicles, patrol rifles and submachine guns.  As a police officer, I recognize the need for police to have these types of resources for several reasons.

There are many domestic and international terrorists that are every day planning to attack Americans in their homes, businesses and governmental buildings.  Police need armored vehicles, and great firepower to defeat these attackers.  Police also face gangs that are often using military training to gain an edge in their gang wars.

I too, however, share the concerns that private citizens have that their liberties may be in jeopardy from a more militarized police force.  As Los Angeles police say, their business is to "Protect and Serve" the citizens of their city.  Militarized police could be a tool for oppression; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Episcopal Church


http://www.aol.com/article/2014/05/04/first-openly-gay-episcopal-bishop-annnounces-divorce/20879923/

Decades ago the Episcopal Church, USA was a God-fearing, orthodox, and traditional church.  Since that time they have left the traditions of Christianity and the Bible and gone their own way.  As a result the church has lost millions of members.

The church failed to discipline bishops who spoke out against the faith.  Then they began to ordained practicing homosexual men.  They ordained women as priests.  They ordained homosexual women, and eventually even made homosexuals and women into bishops.

As a result of this hearsay, lying, and destruction they ended up with a divorced openly homosexual man as the head of the church.  He eventually got "married" to his male lover.  Now he and his "husband" are getting divorce.  This man has left a legacy of destruction, his marriage to his wife, his church and now his homosexual partner.  A sad state of affairs for him and the church; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Benghazi

Congressman Trey Gowdy held a press conference and asked many questions about the Benghazi incident.  One of his concerns was the reason no reinforcement were sent to help the ambassador when he called for help.

One of the reasons cited was that help could not get there in time to save them.  This certainly is an interesting idea.  How can you know how long the ambassador could hold out against the attack?  Since you cannot know that, you cannot say that help could not arrive in time.

There are also questions about what the Libyan government and our allies did about the attack.  The host nation is responsible for the safety of diplomats.  We also had allies who may have been closer and might have aided us, yet no one seems to know if we even bothered to ask for help.  I think there are many questions that need to be answered; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Pedophilia

Haters gotta hate. It's just bigotry. It's just a lifestyle. They can't help how God made them. It's all about the love. Using the Bible as a weapon is not Christian. 

You can't judge someone. Does any of this sound familiar? It's the same argument used against traditional marriage and against homosexual perversion that is taking over our schools, courts and legislatures. Now those arguments are being used by pedophiles. 

Next try will be by bestiality and polygamy practitioners. I have always thought that someone convicted of rape or pedophilia three or more times should be executed. First time should get five years in prison and the second offense ten years, no parole; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Dumb Idea, Smart Gun

California has made smart guns mandatory once they are offered for sale here, all guns have to use the technology. If it were just a new feature offered to people who were interested, then I would not care at all.  Some are worried that smart technology can be used to track your gun, like your cell phone.  Does the government need to track your weapons?

It's true that children who just find a loaded gun would not be able to fire it unless they had the ring or bracelet. However, accidental gun deaths are at their lowest ebb in about 100 years. It's about as likely as getting killed by lighting. 

Teen suicide and poor driving and murder kill thousands of young people and we don't do much about that. Instead politicians want to take away my gun rights because it's another excuse to take power from the people, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

Smart Guns, Dumb Idea

Liberals are pushing Smart Gun technology.  It is a type of gun that requires the shooter to wear a special ring or bracelet so that the gun is enabled to fire.  The idea is that the police officer, security guard or gun owner is the only one who can shoot the gun.  So if the gun is taken away or stolen the thief can't use the gun against the owner or authorized user.

It also means that you have to wear the ring or the bracelet all the time.  It means your wife can't use your gun.  It means that the government is determining what type of gun you can have, and that's an infringement on our constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

It's more expensive than regular guns so it makes it harder for the poor to afford a gun. The technology is not mature and is unreliable, a poor trait for a self defense gun. It can be hacked because it is computer based so that your gun won't work. It makes gun repair more expensive. Very few guns offer this technology so the market is severely limited to a couple type of guns. The right to keep and bear arms does not specify it has to be a specific type of gun; therefore this is an infringement on that right to have the types of gun you want. It's like saying your right to free speech only exists on the Internet but not in print on paper, on television, in movies or in person or on radio.  Smart guns are a dumb idea; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Democrats

There are over 1,800 murders in California in the average year.  That makes California the murder capital of the nation.  Yet California politicians don't seem to find more money to hire police or to build more prisons.  Apparently they don't care about the regular folks as they live in private gated communities and have their own personal body guards and private security forces.

We have the death penalty in this state, and have for decades.  We have about 800 people on death row, yet the state can't seem to figure out how to execute anyone.  The most common cause of death in death row, is complications from old age.  No justice for the victims.

Our state has been run by Democrats for decades.  We have a Democrat governor  and we have a Democrat legislature.  We have Democrats in the Senate and we have Democrats running the major cities in our state.  Our state and cities are near bankruptcy and yet the only thing they can come up with is higher taxes.  The Democrats have destroyed our once great state; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Tax the Church

Recently I have been reading that people are interested in taxing the churches.  The same people who tell you that there is no war on Christians.  The same people that tell you this is not a Christian nation.  

They say we need the money to pay for Food Stamps and other programs for the poor.  The government takes in more money now than they ever have done before.  Yet the liberals still want more money.  Christian schools get better results than public schools.  Religious charities do better than government schools yet the liberals want more money for government schools and want to take it from churches.

We need more jobs, smaller government and the right to keep our own money. Stop looking for other peoples money to take away and start looking for ways to solve the problems of high taxes and big government.  Our solutions involve more freedom, not higher taxes; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Saudi Arabia and Missiles


http://defense-update.com/20140502_saudi-arabia-unveils-part-strategic-missile-force-deterrent-move-iran.html#.U2QUizhOVes

Another international policy failure by the Obama Administration.  This is what happens when our nation becomes irrelevant, unreliable, and timid.  This is what comes from leading from behind.  This is what happens when we leave the war in Iraq half finished; there is no substitute for victory.

Saudi Arabia has revealed that they have a strategic missile force.  The purchased it from Communist China.  When we don't supply our allies with weapons they think they need, then they become allies with other nations and get those weapons elsewhere.  Then they deploy them when they think we have become unreliable.

It used to be that the nations of the Middle East that were friendly to the United States could count on American help in the event of an attack.  Now that the US is proving to be timid when facing Iran and Russia, Middle Eastern nations are turning to Communist China as protector.  They are looking around to find other allies, other currencies and other markets for their products.  It's further evidence of the decline of America and Western Civilization; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Humanism

http://www.armytimes.com/article/20140424/NEWS/304240056/Army-recognizes-Humanism-religious-preference

Ironically, the US Army now allows Humanism as a religious preference.  I think it is an outrage and a terrible idea to elevate humanism to the level of a religious preference.  The Obama Administration has seemingly been trying to destroy the moral fiber of our Armed Forces, this is just another example.

The Army recognizes pagans as chaplains now.  They permit women in combat.  They allow openly homosexual people to serve.  They are permitting illegal aliens to serve in the military.  A recent report says the military should permit transgender people to serve too.

Not one of these changes in the military will make our Armed Forces stronger.  Not one of them would have helped us to win the war in Korea, Viet Nam, Iraq or Afghanistan.  No general has said we need these changes to make a more effective force.  The average American has not been flooding the White House and Congress with demands to make these changes.  These are all liberal notions, ignored by the main stream press that are being foisted on our military; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Robot Wars

http://tiny.iavian.net/1ul4
 
The Army is working hard to introduce more robots into ground warfare.  Since 
the Viet Nam War the US Army has become more and more casualty adverse. 
Certainly no one wants friendly soldiers to die, but the nature of war is 
that people will die.
 
If war becomes so clean that no friendly troops die, there is a concern that 
we may be more willing to engage in a war, thinking that we can conduct war 
without risk to ourselves. That is a dangerous assumption. 
 
There are always risks in war. Robots computer systems can be hacked an 
immobilized or turned against their American handlers.  There is also the 
possibility that the enemy could attack our civilian populations, rather than 
limit their attacks to our robots. Robot warfare is still warfare, and it 
required human soldiers anyway; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
