Confederate Flag

Many people are calling for the banning of the Confederate battle flag.  They claim it is a symbol of hate as evidenced by the Charleston shooters hate filled rants and mass murder.  The Charleston shooter was evil and deranged. 

He claimed to be shooting people because he hated Blacks and wanted to start a race war.  The Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooter was fantasizing about conducting a mass murder for years before the actual shooting.  He was obsessed with Batman and the Joker.  We did not ban Batman as a result.

The people who do these mass shootings are legally sane, they recognize that what they are doing is wrong, but they are mentally ill.  Their shootings are their way of acting out their mental illness.  Rather than stifling free speech, we need to do more research on mental illness and violence.  We need to do a better job of training psychologists to recognize potential mass killers; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Born That Way?

God tells us that homosexual behavior in thought word or deed is a sin.  Some try to excuse homosexual behavior by saying that homosexuals are born that way.  It does not matter if homosexuals are born that way or not. 

If pedophiles are born that way does it excuse their behavior?  If pyromaniacs are born that way do we allow them to set fires?  Most men are born to like women, but we require abstinence until marriage to one woman for life.  No society should make it easy for people to act out their sinful behaviors.  We have laws against murder, theft, and in some cases lying and adultery.  These laws and social norms are there to help the weak to see and know how to behave properly.

We are humans and we are responsible for our behavior.  God created humans to do His will, not our own will.  Some of us will have a more difficult time doing God's will than others will have.  It is still our duty to overcome or thorn in the flesh; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

What Standard is the Standard?

The Bible tells us that man and woman were created for each other.   The Biblical standard for marriage is two become one flesh, one man and one woman for life.   Once you drop that standard, what standard do you use? 

If it is okay for two men to marry, why can't two brothers marry each other?  If two brothers can marry why not mother and son, or brother and sister?   If two men can marry each other, why not three men? Or two men and one woman?

If we allow 12 year old girls to have abortions, why not let them get married?   If we allow 12 year old girls to get married, then why not allow 35 year old men to marry 12 year old boys?  Or nation has become sick and we need to return to God or we will fall apart; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Constitution

The Supreme Court says that same sex marriage is a right guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States.  Where in the Constitution does it say that exactly?  When the Supreme Court decided ObamaCare, they went back to the original intent of the Congress at the time and said the Congress intended to cover as many people as possible so ObamaCare is legal.

In the same sex marriage case they did not do that.  At the time the Constitution, homosexual acts were illegal in every state.  Some states even called for the death penalty for sodomy between consenting adults.  When the 14th Amendment was passed, calling for equal protection under the law, homosexual acts were still illegal in every state in the Union.

The Supreme Court perverted the rule of law, the Constitution and and intent of the framers and Congress by ruling that same sex marriage is not only Constitutional but required to be recognized by the whole nation.  This ruling is typical of a court that sees itself as the maker of laws, not the interpreter of laws; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Same Sex Marriage

The Supreme Court of the United States ruled today that same sex marriage is not only legal, but it must be recognized by every state.  The Supreme Court has overstepped their boundaries, again.  They have created law and rights were no law and no right has existed before.

The people have not voted for same sex marriage.  Few legislatures voted for same sex marriage.  Courts all over the nation have been forcing same sex marriage on the people for years.  The Supreme Court has done what local and regional courts have been doing.

The Congress will respond with several weak attempts to protect religious organizations from having to perform same sex marriage, but President Obama is unlikely to sign them into law.  Even if they do manage to pass and become law, they will only be the law for a few  years until the Supreme Court overturns them again; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Falling Apart at the Seams

While the United States is self destructing with high taxes, high regulation of business, and moral decay, our enemies are busy.  ISIS is still on the march across the Middle East.  Our President wants to limit our response to air strikes, despite the fact that everyone says air strikes alone won't do the job.

In Ukraine the Russian invasion continues as despite several cease fires the fighting has never really stopped.  President Putin to keep the West off balance has begun overflights of areas that have not seen Russian aircraft since the days of the Cold War.  He knows that if he makes everyone in Europe nervous about their own border they may be less likely to defend Ukraine's border.

Iran is on the way to building intercontinental nuclear missiles.  The Obama Administration wants to sign a deal with them so badly that they are willing to accept that as inevitable.  The US has gone from Iran will never get nukes to Iran will get nukes and that's okay.  The United States is falling apart, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Censorship

On Facebook a while back someone wrote that the news should censor people who deny that climate change is caused by human actions or that they don't think that climate change is a critical issue facing the world today.

The science is settled.  There is no reason to continue to discuss the issue, and it's all about the science.  If the science is settled, then why do we need to continue to fund research into climate change?  If global warming is happening and there is no longer a need to discuss it, why should be keep paying for discussions and publications about it?

Liberals used to be for free speech.  Now that liberals seem to control much of the media, it seems they care for free speech only when it suits their agenda.  Don't allow people who support Israel to write articles.  Don't let racists write articles.  Don't let people who deny global warming write articles.  Don't let people post photos of the Confederate flag.  Don't post anything that is sexist.  Don't write anything that offends Islam.  I believe that free markets will eventually determine what is true, right, and beautiful.  Even the free market of ideas; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Biblical Values

The Bible has been the standard of moral behavior for the Western world for nearly 2,000 years.  As the influence of Western nations has grown, that same standard has been picked up all over the world.  Thou shalt not steal.  Thou shalt not bear false witness.

Lying and theft are considered immoral acts.  Murder is an immoral act.  Many cultures did not recognize those acts as immoral until Christian influence was strong enough to overcome their traditions.

In my lifetime, these standards have fallen away.  People steal and others rush to their defense, claiming "fairness" or some other standard, rather than the Biblical standard.  People lie and we are told it was okay, because everyone lies, or that there is no objective truth.  People murder innocent babies in the womb, and we are told it's not murder, because it's the right of the mother to kill her children.  Our great nation needs prayer, and a return to Biblical values; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Cause of Death

 http://www.npr.org/.../how-many-die-from-medical-mistakes...

People worry about how many people are murdered in the United States by firearms.  Of course, that is a concern.  Like any problem, it is important to put the problem in context.  In 2013 there were over 16,000 murders in the USA and over 11,000 were done with firearms.  That means over 5,000 people were stabbed, or beaten to death, or poisoned, or otherwise killed without a gun.  Seems to me if someone wants to kill, this shows they will find a way to do it.

Also, most suicides are done with firearms in the United States.  Oftens these "gun deaths" are lumped in with the murders to increase the number of killed and to make it appear as if more are murdered by guns.   The number of deaths by "assault rifles" is typically fewer than 500, and the number of people killed accidentally by firearms is fewer than 100 and the lowest it's been in over 100 years.

Almost 4,000 people accidentally drown per year.  Is there a national campaign to fill in everyone's swimming pool?  40,000 people are killed in car crashes, and everyone drives or rides in cars.   At least 200,000 people die per year due to medical malpractice. It's third after heart disease and cancer.  No one seems to care that your doctor may be the cause of your death; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Confederate Flag

I don't particularly care about the Confederate flag one way or the other.  If the people of South Carolina want the Confederate flag as the symbol of their state, that's their business.  Some say it stands for racism.  Some say it stands or heritage, or history, or state pride.

I suspect that like many symbols it stands for whatever you want it to mean.  Nazi's us the swastika for a symbol of their political party.  American Indians use the swastika as a symbol of good luck.  Hindus use the swastika for religious purposes.  The Confederate flag, like the swastika is used by many different people for many different purposes.

The United States was a slave nation from the beginning of the republic until December, 1865 with the ratification of the 13th amendment to the Constitution.  That time includes all the period of the American Civil War.  Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, were all slave states and they did not succeed from the Union and in the District of Columbia slavery was legal.  Yet, we don't worry about showing the flags from those states or from the USA during the Civil War.  If we totally ban the display of the Confederate flag, will we really have less crime, less racism, and fewer problems?  I doubt it; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Background Checks

If I thought that background checks really made any difference I might favor them, but they don't matter. Guns are low technology. In California we have a ban on certain rifles. One man made his own at home and went on a killing spree. How did that background check work out? 

What other constitutional rights do you think should require governmental approval before you exercise them? Should ownership of a printing press require a background check? How about abortion? Should that require a background check? 

What happens when the background check costs $10,000? In Orange County where I live the background check for a concealed weapons permit is several hundred dollars, and is non-refundable. Most permits are not granted. So a single mom, working late at night at a restaurant can't afford to apply for a permit because it costs too much. Her ex-husband, stalker won't be bothered by that law; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Charleston, South Carolina Murders

 http://www.cnn.com/2015/06/18/us/charleston-south-carolina-shooting/index.html

We have 800,000 police officers and over a million private security guards in this nation who every day go out and work to prevent or stop criminals from hurting people. That's several times more officers than were ever sent overseas to fight Radical Islam. We have had over 1,500 police killed in the line of duty since 9/11 fighting criminals. 

The motive of this evil man was race, but the guy who murdered a similar number of innocent people in Colorado was Batman. These type of killings are done by dysfunctional, evil, deranged people and they will find an excuse to do these crimes no matter what society does. Columbine was just about getting a high body count so they could be famous. 

We need to do a much better job of treating the mentally ill. I read today that this suspect has been treated for mental illness, clearly whatever treatment was not working.  Nearly every one of these mass shooting have been done by a person who was mentally ill; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Make Greenland Green Again

Years ago we were told that by 2015 New York City would be underwater because polar ice will have melted.  How's that prediction working out?  There has been no noticeable change in ocean levels.  We were told that there would be widespread famines and food riots by now due to global warming.  When did they happen?

The whole Global Warming alarm-ism has become political.  If you favor abortion and gay marriage then you favor destroying Western economies, increasing taxes, and lowering our standard of living to fight Global Warming.  It's nonsense.

The Earth has been warmer and cooler than it is now, and it was not caused by man those times.  Even if man helped it along now, it is still part of the natural cycles of the Earth.  So over the next couple hundred years people may have to move farther north or farther south to get to cooler lands.  Maybe Norway and Canada will have longer growing seasons, maybe Greenland will be green again, I am okay with that; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Global Warming



We were told that overpopulation, pollution, nuclear winter, were going to kill us all.  The solution was always essentially the same.  Western Nations must disarm, increase taxes, transfer money to the poor and poor nations, and their citizens needed to give up rights and lower their standard of living.

I am not doing in favor of doing any of that.  Government officials flying in private jets and riding in limousines telling me I can't have air conditioning in my house or have to pay more in taxes so they can junket all over the world have zero credibility with me.  Vice President Al Goe in his 10,000 square foot home telling me that my 1,200 square foot home is a problem is simply a joke.

China, India and Germany are all using more coal, but the US needs to drive dinky roller skate cars to help the environment?  Please.  My whole life I have been told we are on the edge of doom and the solution is always been the same.  As a kid we were told we were approaching a new ice age.  Maybe we should look on global warming as having solved that problem; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Denialist

The people who believe in Global Warming / Climate Change or whatever it is this week have picked up a technique from other leftists.  They have come up with a perjoritive term to use for people who don't share their religion.  "Denialist.

Denialist.  If you label someone, then you don't have to grant validity to any of their research, facts or opinions.  Hater, racist, homophobic; does not matter if the label is accurate, all that matters is the label has been applied.

In the media driven, sound bite hungry world the left has figured out if they simply develop a label for Conservative, traditional or Christian ideas, they can then chant that name over and over and avoid any real engagement in debate.  If you are a denialist, you are anti-science, ignorant, and favor the 1%, so there is no reason to discus any topic with you further; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Impeach President Obama

Often on the Internet I read about people who think President Obama is a traitor or needs to be impeached.  If that's the case, write your congressman and senators and tell them and tell them why the Congress should take action.  It is up to them to impeach or try a president. 

For the rest of us, conservatives need to be for something and not against things all the time. I oppose President Obama on his policies and I give him the respect due to the President of the United States. If you think he is a traitor or should be impeached, then lay out the case for those two allegations. In addition, tell us what you think should be done policy wise on those issues where President Obama has gone wrong. 

 I believe he may be the worst president in the history of the nation, but simply slamming him, or Hillary Clinton will not win a conservative election in 2016, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Police Hater

  http://www.breitbart.com/video/2015/06/13/cnns-whitfield-attack-on-dallas-police-hq-courageous-and-brave/

In a free society we can agree to disagree on some issues. The cop forcing the girl in the bikini down on the ground and pulling his gun for example. It was a judgement call on his part, I think he made the wrong call, but I think he made a mistake. 

I don't think he was evil or had criminal intent. It was just poor tactics and we can disagree on that. In this instance she is praising evil as courageous and brave which are positive attributes. As a society we should have some standards that are above right or left and support for the system, the establishment, the nation is one of those standards. 

If you don't like how the police do their job, then work by voting or peacefully protesting for change. Don't praise those who shoot up police stations, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Dulusional

'“No challenge – no challenge — poses a greater threat to future generations than climate change,” President Obama said in his State of the Union address on Jan. 20. He believes the primary cause of man-made climate change is CO2 emissions.'

Secular humanism is destroying the religious heritage of this nation by pushing the homosexual agenda.  Radical Islam is destroying Western Civilization itself, to the point of destroying museum displays.  Russia is conquering nations that the United States as pledged to defend and we are not.  

Communist China is on the move in Asia.  Aids and Ebola and other disease are spread across an area wider than ever before in history.  Crime, particularly crimes of violence have taken a major upswing in America and our debt continues to grow.  Yet President Obama thinks that the Earth warming a bit is our "greatest threat."  Is he foolish, delusional, willfully ignorant, intentional misleading, or an enemy of the nation?  I can think of no other options; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Abortion

We are all sinners. A woman who has an abortion is committing a sin. We should consider her a sinner, like the rest of us are. Abortion does not occur in a vacuum. Where is the man, and what is his responsibility? Where are her family and what support have they provided? 

What is society doing to encourage her to keep her baby rather than kill it? How old is the woman, a 12 year old has less ability to understand than a 22 year old woman. If a man has sex with a woman she is his responsibility if she gets pregnant. The child is his also. St. Joseph did not urge Mary to have an abortion, he was going to put her away privately; that is take care of her, but not marry her, due to her supposed infidelity to him. 

That certainly is a good example to us all. We must urge recognition of sin, repentance of sin, and reconciliation to God, through our Lord, Jesus Christ.  That's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Abortion

There is a commandment that says, "Thou shalt do no murder." I define murder as the willful killing of an innocent person by another. I define human life as beginning at conception. An innocent human being being willfully killed is a murder.  Fifty years ago the Leftists screamed "Baby killer" at American soldiers returning from Vietnam, because that was the worst slur that could be made against someone.  Now the Left advocates the murder of innocents.

 I can think of few reasons why an abortion would not be a murder. An abortion done to save the life of the mother, with the consent of the mother or father of the child might be one such case. In cases of rape, incest, or physical or mental deformity of the child, the child is still innocent and still has a right to live. 

Human beings are made in the image of God and we cannot judge their value based on their method of conception or their physical or mental perfection.  Abortion due to the sex of the child, or the race of the child or to avoid inconvenience of the mother are evil; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Get Rich Slowly Scheme

Too many people in this nation stay on welfare and seem unable to get into the working class.  It's not a secret how to get out of poverty, but it does require discipline and self control.  It requires waiting for satisfaction tomorrow, not taking what you can get today.

Stay in school as long as you are able and learn information and skills that are timeless. Don't have sex until your are married and then only have sex with your spouse. Don't get married until you finish school. Work hard at your job and pay all your bills. Save as much money as you can and buy a house or condo as soon as you are able to afford one, even a modest home. 

If you do these things you will be able to maintain a middle class lifestyle, maybe even become rich; barring an unforeseen circumstance.  Certainly we all face setbacks, a major disease, a death in the family, but they are seldom enough to keep us in poverty forever; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Wish Hope Love?

I saw a coffee cup that said:

Wish
Hope
Love

The quotation is supposed to be Faith, Hope and Love.  It is from the Bible.  The most important of these is love, but faith can move mountains.  Wishing does not move mountains.  The coffee cup world has determined to wipe out even a simple quotation from the Bible.

The Bible is the greatest book in the history of mankind.  What kind of hubris is necessary to change a Bible quotation, thinking it is a better idea than quoting the original?  This is typical for America today, changing our history, our culture and our religion, for nothing in return; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Robots

Robots have a lot of value in the civilian world.  I think that disabled people who use wheelchairs, or crutches would be much better off if they could be carried by a robot.  Robots can go up and down stairs and can go places wheeled vehicles can never go.

Imagine if every person who uses a wheelchair could have a robot pair of legs to replace their damaged legs.  It would mean the end of ramps, elevators and other expensive architectural modifications.  It would mean billions of dollars in work, manufacturing robots as aids to people who have mobility problems.

This technology needs to be developed in the United States, and it needs to stay in the United States.  We need to keep it from Red Chinese military and industrial espionage.  We need to insure it is manufactured here, and not in other countries.  The benefits need to be for Americans, since Americans are paying for the development of the technology; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Robots

DARPA is the government organization that does and sponsors research for the US military.  One of their biggest projects now is robots.  They want to make robots to carry loads, rather than have soldiers carry them.

Soldiers today often carry loads of fifty, to eighty pounds.  The helmet, body armor, ammunition, water, and weapons are heavy just on their own.  If a patrol is going to last for a couple days, particularly in extreme weather, there is a lot of extra gear that is needed.

In the desert it can take a lot of water to survive running around outside.  Water is heavy, one pint is one pound.  Robots will be a great option to replace individuals carrying loads for soldiers.  I think that robots in the private sector will also be an important commercial product too; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Mercy Killing?

The Hippocratic Oath says: "Nor shall any man's entreaty prevail upon me to administer poison to anyone; neither will I counsel any man to do so. Moreover, I will give no sort of medicine to any pregnant woman, with a view to destroy the child."

In World War Two history classes we were taught that the Nazis were evil.  We were told they killed babies.  We were told they killed old people and the mentally infirm.  Later, they killed healthy people because they were not Germans.

Here in the United States we are doing two out of three of those.  We kill babies.  We kill the infirm, and the old.  How long before we kill people just because we don't like who they are?  It is wrong to kill the innocent, even if they ask you to kill them; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Radical Islam

This post was published at 9:11 a.m.  All my posts are published at 9:11 a.m.  We need to remember the fact that our nation is at war.  We have been at war since the beginning of the republic.  The Radical Muslims have been at war with everyone else since the beginning of Islam.

Nearly all of the places listed in the Bible are now Muslim controlled territory.  At one time they were all Christian with a few pagans.  The Christians went from place to place and spread their religion.  The Muslims showed up with swords and told the people to covert or die; or at least spend their lives in subjugation. 

Columbus sailed to the New World in 1492.  The reason they were able to finance his mission in that year is that's when the last of the Muslim armies were kicked out of Spain.  Dracula, Vald the Impaler, was noted for putting his enemies on spikes.  His enemies were Muslim armies and they were in Romania.  The West as been at war with Radical Islam since the beginning of Islam; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Red China

http://www.military.com/daily-news/2015/06/02/pentagon-acknowledges-weapons-on-chinas-artificial-islands.html

The Red Chinese are building artificial islands in the Pacific.  They plan on claiming all the ocean around it so they can extend their power and influence in the South China Sea.  Now they are placing weapons on those islands.

They are dredging up the reefs.  Interesting how the international environmentalists get all bent out of shape when anyone in a Western nation does anything that damages a reef.  Yet they allow the Red Chinese to destroy a reef so they can project power, without a peep.

Communist China is as expansionist as any other Communist nation.  The liberals like to tell us that China is different, but they are not.  Until recently the Red Chinese did not have the money, and technology and military power to expand.  Now they have all three and are flexing their muscles; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Close the Borders

http://humanevents.com/2015/06/03/immigration-advocates-frightened-by-99-pound-blonde/?utm_source=coulterdaily&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl

The United States needs to control it's border.  There is no reason why we can't build a fence along our southern border to keep people out.  Good fences make good neighbors and that's true.  If the Mexicans won't stay in Mexico, then we need to build a fence to keep there there.

We need to control our border to prevent people coming here who drive wages down.  I don't support a government mandated minimum wage.  What we need is a free market solution.  Keep illegal aliens from coming here and wages will have to go up.

We have drought in California, we also have three million illegal aliens.  How much water does three million people use?  If we send them home, we will have saved a lot of water for people who are legally here.  I favor immigration, but it needs to be on our terms, not simply an open border; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Tolerance

Is there no dysfunction that is still considered a problem?  A man thinks he is a tiger.  So he gets himself tattooed with tiger stripes, has his ears modified, and gets plastic whiskers put through his mouth.  Rather than being sent to a mental institution where he can be cured of his delusion, he is paraded around on television as if he were a hero.

An Olympic champion decides he is a woman and rather than being treated for his disorder, he is surgically mutilated and filled with drugs.  His picture, dresses as a woman, is posted on magazines and on the Internet.  Even the president says how brave he is, rather than how dysfunction and sad he has become.

Our society has become tolerant of any form of degradation and sin.  We think it is okay for two people of the same sex to get "married" to each other, as if the sacrament of marriage is only about income taxes and inheritance.  I pray for the recovery of our once moral and great nation; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Friends and Allies

People have friends. Nations have allies. Britain and the USA are allies with a special relationship. But how many troops did Britain send to Vietnam and how many troops did the USA send to Northern Ireland? Friends may sacrifice for each other, but nations operate in their own best interest.

Nations often have parallel interests. The Soviet Union and the US vs Nazi Germany. The Soviet Union was not our friend, but they were our ally against Germany. Just as today the Russians and the USA have a common enemy of radical Islam, but we differ on Ukraine and Syria. Sometimes we work together and sometimes we don't.

Sometimes individuals who trust one another, and are friends may also control entire nations.  President Reagan was friends with Margaret Thacher.   I am sure that meant the US worked more closely with Britain than we otherwise would have to win the Cold War.  Still, each nation must do what is best for it at the time; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
