TEOTWAWKI


http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/panicked-super-rich-buying-boltholes-5044084


I think this article about rich people worrying about the poor rising up to overthrow them is just the fantasy of the leftist, Communist, media.  Most of the income equality stuff is just looking at what has always been and making it a big deal.

"Poor" people in America have running water, flush toilets, cable TV, flat sceen TVs, cars, electricity, health care, Obama phones, $200 sneakers, free education, etc.  Things the middle class don't have in most of the world.  Rich people have always had multiple homes, etc all over the world.  There is always the possibility of war, earthquake, famine, flood, revolution.

The rioting in Fergeson was nothing; it was a local problem, magnified by media hype.  A few hundred people converted by a media that made them into a massive protest.  300 people protested Ferguson in New York City and the media acted like they paralyzed the city.  250,000 protested abortion in Washington DC this month and it got ZERO coverage, because the media favors abortion  There is nothing wrong with anyone having a back up plan, but don't move into the bunker in the forest just yet; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Department of Education

Eliminate the Federal Department of Education.  Then use a voucher system to pay for schools.  The school district divides all the money they have by the number of students. The state does the same thing. The parents get a voucher good for that amount of money for each child. 

The parent selects a school for their child and the district then pays that school that amount of money for the year.  So each school that is doing a good job as determined by the parents, gets money. Each school that is doing poorly, as judged by the parents, will get less money. 

Those schools that can't survive go out of business. Money goes to government school or private school. No additional costs to education. Removes the power of administrators and teachers unions and gives it directly to the parents.  No one cares more about the kids than their own parents; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Gender Disorders

There is no such thing as a sex change operation.  If your DNA says you are a man then you are a man.  If your DNA says you are a woman, then you are a woman.  If you feel differently, then you have a mental disorder.

If you have physical characteristics that indicate your sex is other than what your DNA says it is, then you have a physical defect.  Psychology has become a tool of the homosexual agenda.  That's why we cannot always rely on "experts."

Rather we need to rely on common sense and good judgement.  We need to rely on the eternal truth of the word of God, and not what some passing fad says.  Psychology has been trying to bypass their responsibility for poor people who have a mental disease and put the burden on surgeons who cannot fix the mental problems of those afflicted with gender disorders; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Marriage is Under Attack

Marriage is between one man and one woman.  It is for one man and one woman who are outside the limits of consanguinity.  It is for one man and one woman who have reached the age of consent.  It is for one man and one woman, for life.  Only if one dies should the other remarry.

Divorce is an attack on marriage.  Having sexual relations before marriage is an attack on marriage.  Having an extramarital affair is an attack on marriage.  Having sex with relatives is an attack on marriage.  Having sex with people too young to marry is an attack on marriage.  Having homosexual sex is an attack on marriage.  Having multiple marriages at the same time is an attack on marriage.  Having an open marriage is an attack on marriage.

Marriage is a special relationship between two people that was ordained by God.  "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them." Genesis 1:27 one of the first lines in the Bible.  The first miracle done by Jesus was turning water into wine at a marriage.  Marriage is under attack in our society, we need to fight back.  Men, love your wives; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Ghostbusters

http://www.aol.com/article/2015/01/27/the-all-female-ghostbusters-reboot-gets-a-cast/21135766/

I love movies and TV shows.  I have a massive DVD collection and MRS Bunkermeister and I watch TV every day.  I like it when they make sequels to movies I like and when they make a movie version of TV shows I love.

Hollywood does frequently disappoint me, however.  If you make a remake of a beloved TV show, then you anticipate that the name recognition will drawn in fans of the original to make a nice initial box office number.  A ready built-in fan base to see your movie and talk it up to others.

Hollywood gets it wrong nearly every time.  The new Ghostbusters is going to have a all female cast.  A buddy picture with an all female cast simply does not work.  Guys are buddy's in a much different dynamic than women are friends.  I anticipate it will bomb, big time; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Inspired Word of God

What does it mean when we say the Bible is the inspired word of God?  It means the books, and letters in the Bible were written by men, but that He inspired them to write the information they wrote down.  The Bible is not just a collection of interesting stories, they are communications from God, with the writings of men as his instruments.

It's like carrying a long heavy table.  You carry one end of the table and I carry the other.  We need each other to accomplish moving the table.  You did not do half of the work, and I did not do the other half.  It was necessary that we both do 100% to get the job done.

Inspired words are much the same.  God does his part, and the writer does his part, but both are required.  The writer will use his expressions, his history, his knowledge to convey the message that God wants written.  It will give the message that God wants to give, because God has inspired the writer; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Sadness in Canada

http://www.stolinsky.com/wordpress/index.php/2014/10/27/oh-canada/

 A Muslim terrorist attacked the Parliament building in Canada.  He was a habitual drug user and a convert to Muslim.  He stated he wanted to attack Canada because of the Canadian policy of fighting the War on Terror.

He used a lever action rifle.  His previous criminal convictions were enough to prevent him from legally buying or possessing a firearm.  Obviously these laws were completely useless in preventing the murderous attack.

Western nations continue to relay on outdated firearms laws to protect their citizens.  Radical Islam continues to murder their citizens and yet politicians and media act befuddled about the motivation of these killers. As in the Canadian Parliament attack, the only reasonable response to an armed attack by a Radical Muslim is to shoot back, not wait for police; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

VHS

I have owned VHS, Laser Disc, DVD and Blu-Ray players.  I am beginning to suspect there will be no "next format."  I think everything is going to be digital and stored on the Cloud.  I don't think we will own media in the future.  I believe it will be like the Amazon Kindle model where you are licensed to view the content and the license can be cancelled, revoked, or changed at anytime.  

I think movies and TV shows will be pulled if someone finds them offensive, and I think they will be pulled and edited in other cases to make them "better."  I have already noticed DVDs that have been edited for content because one of the main characters was using "racist" language in a show that's 50 years old.  

I would rather own physical copies so I don't have to have my favorite show edited for content, or withdrawn for other reasons.  I don't think old movies or TV shows should be edited unless the original version is also available and the edits are clearly noted on the jacket so the purchaser will be aware of them; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

DVD

I had VHS since about 1978, then got Laser Disc too.  My plan was to skip DVD for the next big thing, but someone gave me a DVD player for Christmas one year and a few DVDs so I started getting those.  The biggest advantage over VHS seemed to be that the DVD did not wear out with use, where the VHS got worse and worse as they were played.  Some of my LIS episodes and other movies and TV shows were in pretty rough shape after a few years.  

So I have been gradually  building up the DVD collection, anticipating I would skip Blu-Ray.  However, when Batman came out in Blu-Ray and the rumor of LIS in Blu-Ray I figured it was time to go with Blu-Ray.  I purchased a Blu-Ray player and Batman on Blu-Ray for Christmas as well as Dick Van Dyke Show.  My wife and I have been watching those and DVD of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, one episode of each every night.

The Blu-Ray of Batman is spectacular. It is fully restored so the prints are excellent, the colors vivid.  VTTBOTS is in color and although it is only DVD the quality is much improved over playing it on a DVD player, we noticed the difference right away.  Dick Van Dyke is black and white, and it also looks great as a Blu-Ray.  Very crisp, clear image, looks brand new, not 50+ years old, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Global Warming & Abortion

Recently I was involved in a conversation with a liberal about global warming.  There was a quotation from a news source that said the Earth had been cooling for the last couple decades rather than warming.  The liberal immediately branded this as false information because it must have come from Fox News.

Once the source of story was determined to be CNN, the liberal then said the information was irrelevant.  So false if it comes from a conservative news outlet but true if it comes from a liberal news media source. 

The liberals like to talk about the science being settled when it comes to global cooling, global warming, climate change, or whatever it is this week, but never want to talk science when it comes to abortion.  Science says human individuals begin their lives at conception, not birth.  The science is settled.  The liberals disregard that and instead rely on emotions, it's a woman's right to choose.  I agree it is a woman's right to choose if she will have sex or not, it is not her right to choose to murder her baby; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Free Markets

Free market economies work just fine, but we tinker with them too much. President Obama has never owned a business but he thinks he knows how to run one. Free healthcare, free college, free time off with pay; how do you pay for all that? There is not a pie that is divided up. 

There is a pie that grows larger with more economic activity. Protect American workers from cheap foreign labor, like Communist China, and illegal aliens and wages here will go up. Those two things are also rightly the job of the Federal government.  Require that all police have the authority and duty to arrest and deport illegal aliens.  Require an import duty on all goods imported from nations that persecute Christians and other religious minorities.  So Saudi Arabian oil gets a 10% tax and Communist Chinese goods get another 10% tax too.  Use the money to balance our budget and pay down our debt.

President Obama needs to stop trying to run everyone elses business and instead run the executive branch.  He needs to stop moralizing about things he does not understand and rather do his real job.  Protect Americans from foreign attacks and prevent Americans from cheap foreign labor; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Perfect Ten




GOD spake these words, and said:

1. I am the LORD thy God; Thou shalt have none other gods but me.

2. Thou shalt not make to thyself any graven image, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, or in the water under the earth; thou shalt not bow down to them, nor worship them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, and visit the sins of the fathers upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; and show mercy unto thousands in them that love me and keep my commandments.

3. Thou shalt not take the Name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless, that taketh his Name in vain.

4. Remember that thou keep holy the Sabbath-day.  Six days shalt thou labour, and do all that thou hast to do; but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God. In it thou shalt do no manner of work; thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, thy man-servant, and thy maid-servant, thy cattle, and the stranger that is within thy gates. For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the seventh day, and hallowed it.

5. Honor thy father and thy mother; that thy days may be long in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

6. Thou shalt do no murder.

7. Thou shalt not commit adultery.

8. Thou shalt not steal.

9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s wife, nor his servant, nor his maid, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is his. 

Why are they called the Ten Commandments?

There are two reasons.  There are ten of them.  We are commanded to obey them.  They are not suggestions, advice, tips for living, or good ideas.  They are commandments, give to us by our Commander; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Ten Commandements

When you hear of the latest outrage that is being perpetrated on the American people by the Republican Congress, just stop and think for a moment.  The Liberal Media is afraid of the Republicans because they know that traditional, American values are still held by the majority of Americans.

They know that the new Republican Congress will try to pass laws to undo the damage done by our society by the present administration.  To stop that, the main stream media will lie, disguise the truth, mislead you and mostly use emotion rather than logic to sway public opinion.

On method I have been using to help me interpret laws is the Ten Commandments.  The liberal want it removed from schools, courts and other public venues because many liberal ideas contradict the Ten Commandments.  Think about the major issues of the day and ask which of the Ten Commandments are being violated.  Often you will find at least one is being ignored, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Plans

The world is a dangerous place.  We need to remember in times of turmoil that we are not really in charge.  God is in charge.  We plan and God laughs is an old saying that I try to keep in remembrance. 

As a kid growing up I wanted to be an Army General and a police officer.  I did get to be a captain in the Army Reserve and I am a Reserve Police Sergeant.  So while part of my dream was fulfilled, it was God's had the moved and changed what I hoped my life would be like.

My late wife and I adopted a little girl, because my wife had a genetic disease.  We raised that girl, and them my wife died.  My new wife and I helped our daughter grow into a young woman, to mature and find herself. My daughter is now a nun.  I believe that was the main purpose of my life to bring that child to Christ.  You never know what God has planned; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Economic Impact

It is unreasonable to expect that decent wages in the United States cannot be grossly undercut by less expensive foreign workers.  Decades ago when the US had a significant technological lead over other nations we could make things here that could not be made elsewhere.  For most consumer goods, that is no longer the case.

The US should also seek to cut every regulation on business that they can.  Every regulation makes American companies less competitive because there is one more thing they have to do in order to say in business. 

Every new law should require an estimate of the economic impact that it will have on business.  Our goal should be full employment.  Laws that have a negative economic impact must be so important that they are worth the hidden tax of compliance, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Fair Trade

By placing a tariff of 10% on all goods imported from Communist China we will do three things.  Pay down our debt.  Pay down the debt we owe to Communist China first.  Don't let them gain interest from us.  Interest money they will use to buy weapons to threaten our allies.

Level the playing field for American companies that compete with Communist China.  They have a terrible record of compliance with copyright, patents, industrial espionage, and currency manipulation.  By imposing a tax we can help to regain some control over our nations economy.

Put pressure on the Communists to permit religious freedom in their nation.  By making China more of a Christian nation they will be more like the West and more interesting in democratic reforms, and less interested in coercion of their neighbors.  People will answer to a higher power than the Communist Party; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Free Trade

Free trade must be fair trade.  We must do more to make our economy business friendly.  We must do more to make the playing field level between us and other nations.  We must also take action to impress human rights on other nations that refuse to recognize them.

The first amendment is perhaps the most important of them all.  Freedom of religion and freedom of speech are two of the most important rights.  We should use our trade policy to help America and to help those in other nations who don't have freedom of religion.

I propose a 10% tax on all imports from foreign nations that don't permit freedom of religion.  Islamic nations frequently suppress Christians and even impose the death penalty for conversion.  Communist nations don't allow a free, non-government sponsored church to exist.  Impose a 10% tax on everything imported from Islamic nations and Communist nations.  Use the money to pay down our national debt; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

ISIS

The world has been at war with radical Islam since the early 600's A.D.  The United States has had conflict off an on since the beginning of the Republic.  Since the 9/11 attacks more Americans have been aware of this threat, but even then most of our citizens are ill informed of the nature of the enemy.

Our presidents and our media have done a poor job of informing people of the extent of the war and the nature of the war.  While we in the West break up these wars into little segments and pretend they are unrelated, they are all the same war.

Radical Islam is not compatible with any other civilization.  It is not simply a religion that you do in private or on Sunday morning.  It is a whole system of government that must be imposed on everyone.  It is a system of conversion, submission or death.  There are no other choices.  Rather the media have constructed a fantasy world were Islam is accepting and inclusive and all are allowed to live in peace together.  This has been the exception rather than the rule.  Over time areas that once were pagan or Christian have been converted to Islam and all others have been driven out, enslaved, isolated, or killed.  This is what ISIS wants to do now, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Special Protections

http://onenewsnow.com/culture/2015/01/08/ms-city-rescinds-ordinance-applauded-by-homosexual-activists#.VLMoZnvVqZY

A town in Mississippi passed an ordinance to ban discrimination against homosexuals.  Later, the city council voted to rescind the ordinance but the mayor would not sign it.  So the pro-homosexual ordinance stayed in effect.

Homosexual behavior is immoral and should not receive special legal protection.  The psychological sciences have been co-opted by homosexual activists.  They brow beat them into reversing their stance on homosexuality as a deviant behavior.  There were no scientific studies, no long term observation, simply politics.

Granting special legal protection to those who participate in homosexual behavior is no different from granting special legal protection for anyone who participates in deviant sexual behavior.  Should be prevent sadomasochists from being fired?  Should polygamy receive anti-discrimination protection?  Our society needs to return to our Christian morality; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Radical Islam

http://onenewsnow.com/politics-govt/2015/01/08/bauer-laments-daily-surrender-by-western-leaders-to-radical-islam#.VLMvmXvVqZY

As a traditional Christian I believe that Islam is a false religion.  As an civilized person, I believe that radical Islam is an evil and dangerous religion.  In a pluralistic society, people should be able to believe what they want to believe about the almighty.

When evil belief becomes evil action, then civilized nations need to take action.  The first thing that needs to be done is to recognize the nature and source of the evil and to verbally condemn it.  Next, the nations need to work together to destroy the evil.

The Western nations need to stop immigration of Muslim to their countries.  Not because all Muslims are bad, they are not.  Rather, because all bad Muslims hide in Muslim communities and facilitate their evil behavior.  As radical Muslims continue their evil behavior, they inspire, intimidate and require other Muslims to become radical.  It's a matter of our survival; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

School

President Obama wants to pay for community college for anyone who wants to go.  Rather, I think we need to abolish the Department of Education.  Education is a state and local responsibility.  President Obama has no business promising free college for everyone.  The Federal government is broke and carrying huge debt already.

If President Obama wants people to be educated, then why doesn't he sponsor a new GI Bill and let returning veterans get free college.  Colleges have been leftist strongholds since the 1950's.  President Obama wants to send more people to college to get indoctrinated in liberal ideas.

Instead we need to train people to do worthwhile work.  We need welders, medical personnel, engineers, computer technicians and scientists of all kinds.  Rather than waste time and money sending people to school with no return to society, send our soldiers to college to learn trades they can use in the military; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Problems

Taxes are too high.  Regulations are too severe and are hurting business.  Fuel is in short supply.  Too many people are unemployed and too many people have fallen out of the labor force.  Welfare and food stamps are at all time highs.  Our national debt is larger than ever before.  Our people embrace drug use and sexual perversion.

The nation is not secure.  We have enemies with nuclear weapons in Iran and North Korea.  North Korean, China, Cuba and Vietnam are still Communist.  Russia is resurgent and has invaded Ukraine.  War still rages in Afghanistan and Iraq; Libya and Syria.  Illegal aliens pour across our borders and then take our jobs and use public services.

We have a shortage of doctors and other medical personnel.  We don't have enough computer technicians, and other engineering and technical people.  Our VA hospital system does not work.  Crime is too high and many people have lost confidence in the criminal justice system.  Our nation is in trouble.  President Obama has done little to solve these problems.  The new Republican Congress must work hard to solve these problems; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Lights Are Dim in the City of Lights

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/video-gunshots-shouts-allahu-akbar-french-magazine-shooting_823281.html

Muslim gunmen shot and murdered twelve people in Paris today.  Four more were critically injured.  They worked for a media outlet that had published things that Muslims found offensive.  I find murder to be offensive.

This was an attack on all of us.  This like the 9/11 attacks was an attack on Western Civilization and Christendom.  Note I publish all my blogs at 9:11 a.m. in remembrance of those attacks.  We have been under siege by Radical Islam since Mohammed left the deserts over 1,400 years ago.  On 9/11 the civilized world was American.

This attack should serve as a wake up call for those who have failed to remember 9/11.  It should be a wake up call for those who think we can negotiate with Islam.  This is a battle to the death between two ideologies.  Today, all civilized men and women are French; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Flying Cars

http://www.theguardian.com/technology/video/2014/oct/29/flying-car-prototype-unveiled-vienna-technology-show-video

Flying cars are the future and the future is here.  A Slovakian company unveiled a flying car late last year.  This is more a drivable airplane but it brings flying cars one step closer.  A flying car, cheap enough to be purchased by the average person and reliable enough to put your kids inside will revolutionize the world.

With drone technology moving along, we need to adapt it to carry people.  Add a GPS system to a drone and you have a flying car.  A flying car should automatically take off, fly and land without any input by the occupants other than to select their destination.  Everything else should be controlled by computers.

An automated air traffic control system can monitor the cars and airplanes to prevent collisions.  Weather sensors can tell if the aircraft should fly or land.  No traffic congestion, no road repairs, no delays would be the result.  We need to jump into the future with flying cars; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Summary

Global warming?  Just another way to destroy democracy and capitalism.
Homosexual agenda?  Force Christianity to accept an immoral practice.
Free trade?  A fraud on the working people, the rich get richer and the jobs go overseas.

Redistribution of wealth?  Government playing favorites by taking from you and giving to me.
Marijuana legalization?  Supported by people who already use marijuana or who want tax money.
Hunting?  A manly sport that should be participated in by all real men at some times in their lives.

Gun control?  A method to disarm law abiding people so the government can do what it wants.
Mass transit?  A job creation project for government unions, and collectivization of the population.
Abortion?  The senseless murder of an innocent life.

That's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Wishful Thinking

In general, the Libertarian attitude is similar to that of the Communists.  Wishful thinking.  We need to live in the real world, not the world as we want it to be.  I don't want my neighbor to have heavy artillery.  Not because I care if he has heavy artillery, or because I think he is irresponsible.  Rather, heavy artillery shells are inherently dangerous, so I don't want to live next door to a stockpile of them.

If we were all responsible adults, with a similar world view and loved one another, then we could hold all property in community like a family and not take any more than what we need and we would work to the best of our ability all the time; that's the Communist view.  It works if you are a close knit family of five or six people but beyond that it falls apart.

Libertarian views that we are responsible adults who should take the consequences of our own actions and generally be allowed to do what we want does not work in modern society.  If you live in the wilderness as a trapper might have done 150 years ago, then I don't care if you smoke dope.  But if you are an airline pilot, my tax accountant, or the guy who works on my brakes, then I do care.  I also think that we can't all be experts on everything and we need to have the government to protect us from criminals, at least to some degree; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Things Change

Air and water pollution, nuclear winter, the population bomb were all going to destroy the planet and the same solution was given.  Rich western nations needed to disarm, give billions away to the Third World and lower their standard of living.

Sorry, but I'm done.  I am tired of smaller cars, smaller homes, increasing fuel costs and constantly being blamed for all the worlds ills.

We were told nuclear energy would be so cheap there would be no need to meter it to homes.  Then the doom and gloom brigade showed up and stopped that.

I want a big house, and a big car and if 100 years from now the oceans are a few feet higher or the temperature a couple degrees warmer, than adapt or die.  Just like the last billion years; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Space

http://defensetech.org/2014/12/11/u-s-funds-development-of-russian-rocket-engine-replacement/

The USA foolishly stopped the Space Shuttle program without a replacement.  We also stopped our expendable rocket program and instead had the Russians build rockets for us to use in our space program.  That meant that if we had a problem with the Russians they could control if we could get astronauts to the space station or not.

President Obama has never properly supported the space program.  The USA should have been on the Moon again and on Mars by now.  We should have a robust public space program and a strong private space program.

Just as the pioneer spirit motivated the Americans of the past, space exploration motivates Americans today.  Spending on space helps us here on Earth.  It provides jobs, intelligence, military capability, and new technologies.  We need to get back on track and get back into space; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

President Obama

I don't think that President Obama is either a Marxist or a Muslim.  I don't think he believes in much of anything apart from his own narcissism and personal power and aggrandizement.  I think he is anti-establishment.  So he plays the race card and tears down the police and military and conservatives and the Christian religion at every opportunity.  

I think he believes that big government has the solution to every problem.  I think he has no knowledge of history.  I think he believes that if something did not work in the past it's only because people did not try hard enough, were sabotaged or were not as smart as he is.  

Like many intellectuals from the 1960s he does not know as much as he thinks he knows, and he has no real agenda, he knows what he's against, but is not sure what he's for, or what things will look like when he's done.  I think he is way over his head in international relations, and domestic affairs.  I think the best we can hope for is gridlock for the next two years; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Doom and Gloom

My whole life people have been telling us the end of the world is near. The solution is always the same. Rich, capitalist nations have to pare back, cut their lifestyle and give money to the poorer countries. The coming ice age was what we heard when I was in elementary school. Pollution, overpopulation, global warming, climate change. It's all hogwash.

There used to be rainforests in Antarctica. Dinosaurs roamed the planet. Things change, sometimes they get better, sometimes they get worse.  We should help the poor.  We should try not to do bad things to the planet.  But improve my life, don't constantly downsize it, or make it harder, or less convenient. 

 I like my fast car, my big house and my plastic grocery bags and my American consumerist lifestyle. I don't care what a bunch of scientists tell me about the doom and gloom that is going to be the result; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
