Knives

http://t.lt02.net/q/DnqK2iwUjRe-R-ygZo725k54Zb_sKZGgVkX1SwF2APmW5PcQduHxw-Kf-

Charles T. (Chuck) Buck of Buck Knives passed away recently.  My God have mercy on his soul.  He was a great American and a great businessman.  His company was family owned and has been in business for decades.  I have owned and purchased many Buck Knives.

Years ago the business climate in California was so poor that many companies were leaving the state.  Many moved their manufacturing overseas.  Often to Communist China.  Buck Knives stayed in the United States, and moved to Idaho.

Many companies look only to profits.  While companies have a duty to stockholders and no business can stay in business without profits, it is important to consider other factors.  Keeping important manufacturing processes in the United States, like making knives for the military, police, sportsmen and others is important.  Thanks Mr. Buck for keeping Buck Knives an American company; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Family

Genesis, Chapter 1:
27 So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.

28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”

 Chapter 2
21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof.

22 And the rib which the Lord God had taken from man, made He a woman and brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.”

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife; and they shall be one flesh.

Chapter 3
 16 Unto the woman He said, “I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception. In sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.”

From the very beginning of the Bible the plan for mankind is made plain.  That man and woman are made in the image of God.  Man and woman are intended to be with one another.  Man and woman are one flesh and should always be together.  

There is no doubt.  There is no confusion.  This same theme runs all through the Bible that one man and one woman are intended by God to be the basis for society and civilization.  The family of a man and a woman brings forth children.  The family takes care of them and makes the children into good citizens, productive, law abiding and holy.

If the man or woman die, then they are to find another mate or to be taken care of by the other family members.  By extension, the church is also a part of the extended family and can also help to care for the sick, the fatherless, and the widow.  Failure to abide by God's plan leads to disaster for the individual, the family, and society; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Destruction

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JEYX_CbwAD8

ISIS as radical Islam always does, is destroying statues in Mosul.  Just at the Taliban destroyed the Great Buddhas and entered museums and broke up statues.  They pushed over museum displays and pulverized them with sledge hammers.

There is no reason for this terrorism.  It serves no purpose except to show these people as the barbarians they are.  These statues are no longer worshiped.  They are not religious artifacts.  They are part of the priceless heritage of mankind.

Radical Islam is a barbaric ideology.  It does not respect other religions.  It does not respect women or children.  It even continues to perpetrate the slavery of Black Africans.  Recently in Nigeria Radical Muslims were selling young Black women for $12.50 cents as slaves.  Pray for their souls, pray for protection from them; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Genetic Condition

Some people claim that there is proof that homosexual behavior is genetic.  That it is built into the system of homosexuals.  The further claim that this means we cannot discriminate against them because for them, homosexual behavior is normal.

This is simply a lie.  There was one biological study that showed there was a difference in the brains of homosexuals and straight people.  That study was conducted by a homosexual man and has never been duplicated by any other scientist.  His findings were simply wrong.

Even if there was a genetic basis for homosexual behavior does not mean that the behavior is appropriate.  Some people are attracted to animals, children or close relatives.  If we find this behavior is genetic do we throw out the laws against bestiality, pedophilia and incest?  I think not.  We know there are people with psychological compulsions to set fires or to steal.  We don't permit them to burglarize stores or burn them down.  We provide treatment for them and help them to overcome their condition and lead normal lives.  We should do the same for homosexuals, just like we did fifty years ago; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Abnormal Behavior

Recently I have had a few discussions about homosexuals getting married to each other.  I believe this is an abomination to the Lord.  I do not believe this immoral activity should be permitted in a civilized nation.

No civilization has ever permitted homosexuals to marry one another as if they were a normal, straight couple.  Certainly the example of every society in history should be a good one.  If this were a good idea, someone would have done it already.  It is a very bad idea and we should not permit this to happen.

Homosexuality is not a normal psychological condition.  Humans are male and female so that we can procreate and continue the species.  Homosexual behavior contradicts this imperative.  Homosexuality used to be considered a psychological disorder by most psychologists.  Only due to political lobbying and protesting by homosexual activists did this change.  The change was not due to any psychological or scientific studies that determined homosexual behavior was normal; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Firearms Safety

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

1.1 Treat firearms as if they are loaded
1.2 Point the muzzle away from non-targets
1.3 Keep fingers off the trigger
1.4 Be sure of the target and of what is beyond it

If people always follow the firearms safety rules they are less likely to have a firearms related accident or negligent discharge.  If you treat all firearms as if they are loaded, then you don't make the assumption that the gun is unloaded when it is loaded.

If people keep the muzzle pointed away from non-targets, if the gun does discharge then any rounds will not directly hit a person.  The concept of keeping the muzzle in a safe direction is a final protection if the firearm discharges unintentionally.

If people keep their fingers off the trigger they are unlikely to have the weapon discharge.  The vast majority of firearms discharges are due to the trigger being pulled.  Sometimes a sympathetic grip as a person starts to fall or struggle may cause a finger to tighten and pull a trigger.  Follow the rules of firearms safety; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Children

Who owns your minor children?  Who has authority over them?  Does the government own your children?  Do you own your children?  Are they owned by someone else?  God owns your children and you and society hold them in trust for the Lord.

It is your duty as a parent to take good care of your children.  Feed them, clothe them, teach them, instruct them in the ways of the Lord.  Bring them up to be good Christians, good citizens, people who will bring credit to the Lord, to the nation and to your family.

Too often we read that parents abuse their children, both physically, sexually, and mentally.  We read that parents fail to care for their children.  These behaviors are inexcusable.  Our duty is to take care of our children. It is our responsibility to have sex only with our lawfully wedded wife or husband, and so we have children only when we can adequately care for them; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Marijuana Leglaization



Alcohol has been part of every society for thousands of years and we still have problems with it. Will marijuana really improve our nation? Will it help to keep us competitive with other nations? If it causes only half of the 10,000 traffic related deaths alcohol causes, is that okay?

Many well known mass murderers have been heavy marijuana users including George Hennard who shot up Luby's Cafeteria in Texas and 23 were killed and 20 injured.  Jared Lee Loughner attacked U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords, and he killed 6, and injured 13 people in the attack.  Is there some effect on the minds of a small percentage of the population that leads them to mass murder?  Not only do we not know, we are not even looking.  

The people in the media who want marijuana legalization often ignore marijuana use by criminals or simply indicate "drug use" or "convictions for drug use" in stories they write. Marijuana was illegal for 100 years everywhere in the world for good reason, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Marijuana Legalization


Marijuana is used to diminish the ability of the user to think clearly.  Who in society do you want to use marijuana regularly?  Police officers?  Firemen? Doctors?  Lawyers?  Perhaps school bus drivers, airline pilots, and nuclear reactor technicians?  

If it's legal, why can't they use it?  Will our society be better off if members of our military smoke marijuana regularly?  If marijuana is legalized, they almost never tax it, so the associated problems are not paid for by the users.  And how do you tax something grown at home?  

Should children be allowed to smoke it?  How about pregnant mothers? Back when the whole legalize marijuana campaign got started we were told it was so old ladies who had cancer could get their appetites back.  Then it was all sorts of vague illnesses.  Finally, it's just to get high with, as I knew it was always intended to be; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Marijuana Legalization


Most people drink alcohol without ever having a problem with it. They don't drink and drive, they don't beat their wives. It is perfectly fine to have an alcoholic drink with dinner or with a friend. Most people don't drink until they are drunk. 

The only reason to smoke marijuana is to get high. If you did not get high, you smoke more of it. You are inhaling a smoke into your lungs, we know how bad that is for tobacco, is marijuana likely to be that much better for you after 20 or 30 years? 

We know marijuana also causes impairment, but we don't have the same set of legal standards and measuring tools we have for alcohol. Marijuana can stay in the system for a couple days. Marijuana should stay illegal, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

CCW

There is a bill to require reciprocity for concealed carry permits in every state.  If you have a concealed weapons permit in one state, it would be good in all 50 states.  This is just what they have for drivers licenses.  If you drive in one state, your license is good in all states.

I have read that liberals are using scare tactics to try and prevent the passage of this bill.  They claim it will allow domestic violence abusers and stalkers to legally carry weapons.  This is a foolish claim.  In most states people convicted of violent crimes are ineligible for concealed weapons permits.

The other issue is that people who are violent criminals don't carry concealed weapons permits, they carry guns.  They are willing to do terrible, violent crimes don't carry about weapons permits.  Do you think car thieves care that their drivers licenses are up to date?  It's just another ploy to try and keep guns from law abiding people, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Public School Teachers

In a recent conversation someone mentioned how public school teachers are underpaid and they have to spend so much of their own money to provide supplies for the kids.  That teachers put so much money into education bit is getting old. 

 Catholic schools spend much less per child and turn out better kids. Home schools turn out better kids and cost less per child. Police spend a lot of their own money doing their jobs too. I get a $500 annual uniform allowance, last year I spend $650 buying uniforms and equipment, not counting dry cleaning and etc. 

 Lots of workers spend their own money to make their jobs more effective. The average worker in the USA is paid $48,900 per year and the average public school teacher $58,000 per year. So teachers are doing okay.  No one should become a teacher because they want a great income, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

WMD

http://www.nytimes.com/2015/02/16/world/cia-is-said-to-have-bought-and-destroyed-iraqi-chemical-weapons.html?smid=fb-share

The CIA has been buying weapons of mass destruction from people in Iraq.  They then have destroyed those weapons.  The leftist media keep telling us there are no weapons of mass destruction, which is simply a lie.

The Russians, Chinese, French and British all said Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Saddam refused to cooperate with the UN as he agreed to do to dispose of his WMD arsenal.  There were over thirty nations who joined the coalition to overthrow Saddam.

Saddam used chemical weapons against the Kurds and against Iran. The Bush Lied meme is a typical leftist lie, repeated over and over again without regard to the truth.  For the media and the left is all about domestic politics.  They don't care about the truth, the end justifies the means for them; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

I Hate When That Happens

Hate crime is a thought crime.  Hate is defined not as the absence of love or animosity towards others, but a failure to embrace the progressive agenda.  Ironically, racial minorities are some of the most commonly convicted of hate crimes against other minority populations.

If tacking a few years or the death penalty onto a hate crime will reduce murders, than why not tack a few years or the death penalty and reduce all murders?  Because the goal is not to reduce murders.  It is to make certain privileged people better than others.

Eventually hate itself will be a crime.  Speaking the Word of the Lord is defined as hate speech.  Telling the truth about a liberal politician is called hate speech.  Speaking out for traditional Christian or American values is called hate speech.  How long before it is also a crime?  It already gets people fired; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Judges

I remember being at the Orange County Fair and stopping at a pro-life booth. They had plastic models of a fetus at 5-6 weeks, it was the size of a peanut. I handed it to my daughter, she was about four years old and said, "Sarah, what is this?" without skipping a beat she said, "A baby." 

A child instinctively knows what the Supreme Court can't figure out.  Too much of our lives are being run by judges who don't care what the law says.  They don't care what the people want, they only care about forwarding their leftist agenda or making a name for themselves in the law books.

In recent years same sex marriage has been put to a vote by the people, 37 times.  It has lost every single time.  Yet judges continue to say that same sex marriage is the law.  Homosexual behavior was illegal in every state at the time the Bill of Rights was written, yet judges keep telling us it is a constitutional requirement.  We need to start impeaching judges who can't figure out what common sense, the will of the people and the Constitution require; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Shipping

International shipping used to be done by guys moving heavy wooden boxes and burlap bags around.  50 years ago they started putting cargoes into containers.  That reduced breakage, spillage, and theft.  It made unloading much faster and easier.  It was no longer a low skilled labor intensive job.

It is now a highly skilled job.  Drop one container on the bottom hull of a ship and you sink it.  Drop a container on a man and he is squashed like a bug.  It's a skilled job that pays excellent money.  Their work rules are very restrictive and so it's a relatively easy work day.

Still the writing is on the wall for many of these jobs.  Technology is being developed that can take much of the human factor out of these duties.  Containers could be moved around without the need for people to operate the machines.  These high paying jobs could be going away; created greater efficiency, less cost, fewer loses.  Might be a bad time to go on strike for higher pay; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Shipping

Dock workers are essential to move cargo to and from America.  Dock workers often make three or four times the amount that average Americans make.  You would think that in times of high unemployment, underemployment, and a low labor participation rate, people would take care to keep their jobs.

Still that did not stop dock workers from going on strikes and work slowdowns in the West Coast of the US and Portland in particular.  With a governor who is involved in scandals, he has had no time to help resolve this problem.

With a city that cares more about people movers and bike trails than it does about moving heavy cargoes, the infrastructure has fallen behind.  As a result at least on major shipper has said they are moving their business to Seattle and taking their $80 with them.  Good buy jobs; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Drug Testing

 http://reverbpress.com/news/another-gop-fail-0-2-percent-tennessee-welfare-recipients-found-use-illegal-drugs/

This article says that people who get welfare test positive for drugs only .2 percent of the time, versus 8% of the general population who are believed to use drugs.  They claim that over 80% of Republicans favor drug testing of welfare recipients.

I find it difficult to get upset that politicians are doing what the people who elected them to do. Also, does why does drug testing find such a small percentage of positive results. I used to be an HR manager and when we suspected people were using drugs and sent them to a drug test they typically simply did not show up for appointment because they knew they would test positive. 

What happens to those who don't keep their appointment or if they refuse a test and what percentage of the applicants fit that category? Is drug testing keeping welfare recipients from doing drugs since the positive test results are lower than the general population, or is that number an over estimate?  I suspect these numbers are not the full story; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Unpatriotic

http://www.cnbc.com/id/102410190

University of California Student Association voted to divest from investment in nations they consider to be violating human rights.  They included the United States of America from that list.  So any companies that do business in America will not be getting their money.  This is disgusting that in a time of war these educated fools think America is the problem.

I think the reverse should be implemented immediately.  Stop all Social Security payments to students, and end all Federal funding for the school.  Stop all Sallie Mae loans and Federal student loan guarantees also.

No American owned business should do business on campus.  They should not sell American made products in the book stores, and American businesses should not recruit on campus.  This is the typical crazy leftist foolishness that happens on schools where they believe they can get away with anything no matter how stupid.  Perhaps the State of California should also cut all funding and close the schools; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Hearts and Minds

ISIS is murdering people by cutting their heads off and by burning them alive.  They are training little children as young as 6 years old to be suicide bombers.  They are killing anyone who is not their version of Islam.

In the meantime, President Obama seeks to draw parallels to inappropriate behavior by Christians in the past with the behavior of ISIS today.  Who's side is he on anyway?  Much of this war is about winning the hearts and minds of people.

President Obama is comparing our side to their side and drawing moral equivalence between the two.  We are doing a poor job of fighting Radical Islam.  President Bush did not do a very good job, but President Obama has been terrible that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Brian Williams

http://www.caintv.com/nbcs-brian-williams-admits-he

NBC news anchor Brian Williams says he admits that he mis-remembered his story about having been shot down in a US Army helicopter in the Iraq War.  I don't believe him.  You don't mis-remember something that important.

I think he was lying to make himself seem that much braver.  I think he should resign immediately and leave the news industry.  If he does not resign, then NBC should fire him, immediately.  He should be black balled from the news industry.

He should be relegated to writing stories about cooking, and gardening and supermarket grand openings.  He has lost his credibility.  News media is bias enough without actually falsifying stories, particularly for their own self-aggrandizement.  I don't believe his explanation, I don't accept any apology.  He was stealing the valor of better men than he or I and he needs to go, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Vaccinations

I think everyone should be vaccinated for the various communicable diseases that are common to where you live.  Certainly we need to be aware of the concern that the government is forcing us to do something, in inject a chemical.

That is not a decision to be taken lightly.  There are other things to consider, however.  The first is the common good.  Not everyone who gets vaccinated for a give disease will actually become immune, so other people getting the disease can spread it to them if everyone is not vaccinated.  We have an ethical duty not to give diseases to other people.

Vaccines have proven to be a safe way to prevent disease and even eliminate disease.  While sanitation and other factors are important in drive disease rates down, they alone do not seem to be enough to eliminate disease.  I was vaccinated, my child was vaccinated, and I encourage others to vaccinate their children too; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

They Say You Want a Revolution

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

This article says the super rich are panicked and are building bolt holes where they can go to hide from the revolution that will come here in America.  They are worried about income equality and they are afraid they make and own too much. 

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, all over the world.  There is always the possibility of war, earthquake, famine, flood, revolution.










If the super rich were so concerned they could give away large amounts of their fortunes.  They could cut the costs of the products, goods and services they provide.  They could do any number of high profile things to prevent this revolution if they really thought it was coming.  I think we are a long way from revolution; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Marijuana

http://www.onenewsnow.com/ap/politics/maternal-pot-use-under-microscope-in-colorado?utm_source=OneNewsNow&utm_medium=email&utm_term=16780259&utm_content=626013470181&utm_campaign=17682#.VNLO5C7VqZY

Legal marijuana continues to bring up problems that were overlooks by those who were in a hurry to legalize this dangerous drug.  There was a reason that marijuana was illegal in the whole world for about 100 years.

Now people are realizing that perhaps heavy marijuana smoking by pregnant women is not a good idea.  So the legislature in Colorado is proposing putting up warning signs and labels so pregnant women won't smoke marijuana.

Legalizing and de-criminalizing marijuana is a terrible idea.  All it will do is allow millions of Americans to become dependent on marijuana and throw their lives away.  It will eventually lead to an increase in crime as they steal to support their habit.  This will turn out to be a disaster; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Five Pillars?

http://www.aol.com/article/2014/11/13/stronger-muslim-faith-worksheet-question-angers-north-carolina/20993373/?icid=maing-grid7|htmlws-main-bb|dl18|sec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D563569

An elementary school has sent home worksheets that require kids to fill in the five pillars of Islam.  Why is it that children can't learn the 10 Commandments but can learn the five pillars of Islam?  Kids get sent home for having a Bible, but the teachers assign non-Christian religious homework?

This is typical liberal madness.  The vast majority of Americans are Christian, yet liberal judges and educators consistently deny the majority religion from the use of public accommodations.  They stop prayer groups, they prevent pre-sporting events prayers, and public displays of Nativity Scenes, and the 10 Commandments. 

Yet, they teach children the five pillars of Islam.  This is the typical political correctness of the left.  Deny the contributions of the majority and pretend as if the Muslims have made any significant contribution to the history of the United States; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Labor Participation Rate

http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS11300000

The labor participation rate is the number of people in the population that are not employed, and not looking for a job.  The unemployment rate is the number of people in the population who want to work, but can't find a job.

The ideal is the number of people who are unemployed will go down and the number of people who are participating will go up.  So the maximum number of people are working.  When our economy is booming unemployment goes down and the participation rate goes up.

During the Obama Administration, the unemployment rate has been slowly going down.  The President and Main Stream Media give the impression that it is good news.  It is only good news if the people are getting jobs.  Most of them are not getting jobs.  They are falling off the grid and are no longer looking for work.  The labor participation rate shows where these people went; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

War In Iraq

http://www.ijreview.com/2014/11/202433-isis-christian-clash-443/

A Christian militia has retaken a town in Iraq from the ISIS terrorists.  All over Iraq ISIS was capturing towns and displacing,or killing everyone that was not of their specific Muslim religion.  Now Christians are fighting back.

The US news media likes to ignore what is happening in Iraq.  They know it makes President Obama look bad that he snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.  So they simply ignore the story when they can.

It's one of the hallmarks of the main stream media. They seldom lie, they simply don't tell the story.  We should have sent a million troops into Iraq, denied their sovereignty and rebuilt them from the ground up.  We did that with Nazi Germany and we did that with Imperial Japan and it worked just fine.  President Bush decided to wage war on the cheap, and it failed to change the population.  President Obama withdrew our troops too soon, and the whole thing fell apart; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Japan

http://www.aol.com/article/2015/01/31/video-islamic-state-group-beheads-japanese-journalist/21137527/?icid=maing-grid7|maing17|dl1|sec1_lnk3%26pLid%3D607051

ISIS has killed a second Japanese hostage.  Japan must be one of the most inoffensive nations in the world today.  They sent a small number of troops to Iraq and apart from that they have only performed relief aid missions all over the world.

ISIS murdered two men in cold blood.  The death of these two men will accomplish nothing except to further demonstrate, if any further demonstration is needed, that ISIS and radical Islam is barbaric and evil.

Perhaps Japan will reconsider the danger that radical Islam poses to all civilized people.  If I were Japan, I would not permit Muslims into their nation until this threat is over.  The nature of radical Islam is such that as long as there are Muslims this threat will continue to exist, Islam has always been spread by the sword; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
