Drones

Drones have been in the news a lot recently.  They have interfered with landing commercial aircraft.  They have been found hovering in a guys backyard and he shot it with a shotgun.  They have interfered with police and fire operations too.

There needs to be regulations governing drones.  I don't want so many that drones become useless, but we need some to stop them from becoming dangerous.  We need to talk about this and find out what is a good idea and how to address these concerns.

There should be some way to identify who owns a drone.  If the drone is used improperly they should be able to be tracked down.  If a drone is lost, or crashes, it would be good to be able to return it to the owner.  I don't want a complex or expensive system, just a simple, practical one; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Abortion Money

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2015/07/30/heres-a-stomach-heart-kidney-fourth-undercover-planned-parenthood-video-purportedly-shows-official-pushing-sale-of-intact-babies/

 
When pro-life activists try to get legislatures to ban late term abortions the abortion activists try to say there is no reason to do that because so few happen.

Pro-abortion people don't like bans on partial birth either.  At one time they say they are rare.  The next time they say they are critical.  If they are rare, they are not critical.

Now with the recent videos being released we found out the real reason that pro-abortion people want late term and partial birth abortions.  They want the money.  They want to profit off of the fully developed body parts and organs of full grown humans.  The love of money is the root of all evil; that’s the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Hunting







There is nothing wrong with hunting. Like any activity, it must be done responsibly. You don't hunt in game reserves, you don't hunt animals out of season, you don't hunt animals that are endangered in the area you are hunting. 

You don't hunt without the proper licensing and if necessary, guides. The meat, and skin should not be wasted. Deer are not endangered in the USA because the millions of hunters are paying billions of dollars for their maintenance. 

This guy may have hunted this lion illegally and for that he needs to face a court and if convicted he should do his time and pay his fine. Remember too that people should be presumed innocent until guilty, everyone deserves a fair trial and a right to make a defense. Also threatening to kill people who killed an animal may also be illegal and certainly is not appropriate; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Donald Trump

Donald Trump is running for president.  I am glad he is running.  I think he has some good ideas and I think he would be a better president than Hilary Clinton.  I also think he would not be a great president.

I believe there are better Republican candidates than Donald Trump.  I think he should be given a cabinet post where he could use his skills, such as the Secretary of the Treasury, or Secretary of Commerce, or even Secretary of State.

He has great negotiation skills, he knows money and he knows business.  Those skills have been greatly lacking in our national government for a long time.  I also think he is causing some of the Republican candidates to run towards the right.  Too many of our Republicans have been pretending to be conservatives, but are moderates or even leftists.  We need to make the RINO extinct; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Bring Jobs Home

The United States needs to bring jobs home.  Too many American products are built in China, India, Japan, Germany.  We need to bring those jobs back here and make those things here in America.  Manufacturing jobs are often good paying jobs.  We need full employment as a goal.

Every American who is physically capable of working should be working.  American governments should require contracts be filled with American products.  American companies should be encouraged to bring back jobs from overseas.

Illegal aliens need to be sent home.  Every job taken by an illegal alien is a job that should be done by an American.  There are 24 million foreign born workers in the United States.  There are at least 8 million unemployed Americans.  If we send back even half of those foreign born workers, then America would be at full employment; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Military Firearms Rights

 http://www.foxnews.com/us/2015/07/18/first-4-marines-killed-in-tennessee-terror-attack-idd/?intcmp=ob_article_footer_mobile&intcmp=obnetwork


There were four Marines and one Sailor murdered in a terrorist attack in Chattanooga, TN.  They were not authorized to carry firearms for self protection.  Despite this, at least two people there fired back at the attacker.

The Second Amendment grants Americans the right to keep and bear arms.  American's rights don't end when they leave the front door of their house.  Their rights don't end when the put on the uniform of the military service.

It is despicable that the Federal government has for decades prevented American servicemen from carrying guns for self protection.  These are people who are putting their lives on the line for us.  The least we can do is to let them carry a gun to protect themselves; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Islamic Conquest

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muslim_conquests

Radical Islam has spread over a huge part of the world by the sword.  Radical Islam was in Spain.  The real reason that Christopher Columbus sailed in 1492 because that's the year that the Muslims were finally defeated and driven out of Spain.

Dracula was a hero in his nation because he stopped the Muslims from conquering Romania and Eastern Europe.  He did that about the same time that the Muslims were being forced out of Spain.  Radical Islam has tried to take over Europe several times, but have not been able to do so.

Now they are using a new tactic.  They move into Europe and America as refugees, students, displaced persons, and immigrants.  They don't want to become French, or British, or Americans.  They want to take over by moving in and having large families.  They start Islamic law and retain their Islamic customs in their new homes.  Honor killings, and terrorism, and a failure to assimilate are the hallmarks of their new conquest; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Ticket

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CBh3wzXd3vg

I work part time as a police officer and have for over twenty years.  If you are stopped by the police, this is what you do and everything should turn out just fine.  It's not difficult and you will save yourself a lot of trouble.  

Don't say anything except answer direct questions from the police.  Hand them your drivers license, registration, and proof of insurance.  Stay in the car and stay still unless they ask you to exit.  Don't ask them to explain or argue, you are unlikely to win in the field.  Sign the ticket. 

 If you don't like what happened, phone the station and complain to the watch commander.  If you think the ticket was inappropriate, go to court and explain to the judge why you are not guilty.  Follow those few steps and situations like this will never happen; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Trump

Donald Trump is saying a lot of things that many Americans are thinking.  For decades Americans have been told that Washington will control our borders.  Just give this one amnesty for the illegal aliens here now, we will stop more from coming, again.

We always get the amnesty, but we never get the fence built.  We never get employer sanctions.  We did get part of a fence, that was a virtual fence.  A line of sensors that told the Border Patrol that aliens were crossing the border.

Of course, there were never enough Border Patrol agents to go round them all up in response to the sensor activations.  Cities were allowed to flaunt the law and declare themselves sanctuary cities, and not turn over illegal aliens to INS.  How can they do that?  Who is calling them on it?  Why haven't we secured our border from criminals, and terrorists?  We need to do that, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Gun Safety

All of us make mistakes. The right to keep and bear arms comes with it the responsibility to bear them safely.   If you handle guns enough it is likely you will have an unintended discharge. It only takes a fraction of a second to make a life changing error. That's why the basic rules of firearms safety are so important. That's why they even overlap to some extant. 

All guns are always loaded. If you consider the gun is always loaded then you are unlikely to do foolish things with them because you think they are safe to handle. Never point the muzzle at anything you are not willing to shoot. So even if you think it's unloaded and you have an unintended discharge, you won't hit anything important. 

Keep your finger off the trigger until the sights are on the target. Most guns discharge because someone pulled the trigger. Finger off the trigger prevents that. Always be sure of your target. I thought it was a deer is not the same as I was sure it was a deer; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Climate Change

I don't care about global warming.  Maybe it's happening.  Maybe it's not.  I don't think that humans can really have that much of an effect on the planet that we can cause the climate to change.  The climate changes all the time anyway.

Volcanoes spew out tons of carbon dioxide and we can't do anything about that.  Forests catch on fire and spew out tons of carbon dioxide and burn off trees.  There are plenty of natural forces that effect the climate.

In ages past, continental drift moved continents to whole new spots on the globe.  Sun spots also determine out climate.  Will we have to stop continents from moving if it makes one warm up?  Or do we only fight climate change if it's man made?  I think the whole thing is foolish; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Best For the Nation

Ronald Reagan used to say there is an 11th Commandment.  Thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican.  It's one thing to disagree on policy, it's another to say bad things about someone.  The Republicans need to do a better job of getting along.

The goal is not to win at all costs.  The goal is to insure a Republican is elected president in 2016.  Republicans need to avoid poisoning the well.  Any Republican is better than any Democrat for president.

We have to do what is best for the nation.  The presidential race is not about individual egos.  It is about what is best for the nation.  For example, I did not think that John McCain would be a good president.  I voted for him for president in the general election because he would have been much better than President Obama; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Guns

I think that everyone should be required to learn firearms safety and gun handling in high school, including range time with a sample of handguns.  Both revolver and semi-automatic handguns should be trained.  Nearly any high school could be provided with these facilities at low cost.

Then the 2nd amendment should allow most people to carry firearms.  Criminals, by definition of being a criminal, don't worry about the law and carry guns whenever they want to have them.  That's part of the freedom of being an outlaw, you are not constrained by the law.

Those convicted of violent felonies, and those who are mentally ill and a few others excepted. I think if you want a gun free zone, that's okay, but should have the type of screening done at airports to keep armed people out and unarmed people secure.  What we have been doing is not working; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Gun Free Zones

The recent murder of five Marines at a recruiting station is an excellent example of how our War on Terrorism has failed. It is also an excellent example of how liberal firearms policies and wishful thinking are getting Americans killed every day.

That Marine Corp recruiting station was a gun free zone.  There is a sign to that effect on the door of the office, surrounded by over a dozen bullet holes, fired by someone who was not stopped by sign on the door.  A criminal, madman, or terrorist with a gun is only stopped by a good person with a gun.

I think during basic training every soldier should get about three days of handgun, use of force training, not unlike that given to security guards and police, and then have their ID endorsed for CCW out of uniform and open carry in uniform, then it applies everywhere.  I think this would help to save lives; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

History Lesson

The United States has fallen out of lone superpower status.  Not so much because we are not a superpower, but because we have allowed our power to be negated by half measures, and foolish decisions.

In World War Two, the United States went to war against the Germans.  We drove the Germans out of France and toppled Nazi Germany.  We did not stop there.  We destroyed the Nazi government and forced all Nazi's out of power.

In the war to liberate Kuwait we drove the Iraqis out of Kuwait but we stopped there.  In WWII we did not liberate France and allow the Nazis to stay in power.  We eventually were forced to topple the Iraqi government but we allowed them to bring in a new government that was not stable, did not represent the people and was not overly friendly to America.  We have lost our way and we need to learn the lessons of history; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Highway Construction

I often drive 50 miles into Los Angeles County.  It takes as long as three hours.  It's all freeway miles.  It should take less than 50 minutes to go that far at 65 miles per hour.  The roadways are paid for out of gasoline taxes.  California has some of the highest gasoline taxes in the nation. 

Our gasoline also is subject to sales taxes so that as the price of gasoline goes up, the taxes increase too.  So the state has collected more and more money for roads in the last ten years.  Yet, despite this the state has done a poor job of improving our existing roadway and of building new roadways.  In the last 30 years

California's population has doubled, yet we never finished even half of the projected freeway system.  California is becoming a failed state in terms of transportation; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Guns

In California, good people are almost never able to legally carry a gun around.  If they get caught with a gun, they can get a year in jail.  A year in jail is a long time for an otherwise lawful citizen to serve in jail.  So an unarmed person fears the criminal, but not the police.

For most people their lives would be ruined.  Taking a year off from work, the legal expenses, the loss of reputation, and the stress on the family is devastating.  For a regular person, this can destroy their whole life.  So a good person with a gun fears the police more than they fear the criminals.

Criminals on the other hand, have no fear of going to jail.  It's just the cost of doing business.  A gun makes it easier to commit a robber, rape or murder.  If they are willing to commit a crime that could lead to five years or more in prison, or even death, they certainly are not concerned about carrying a gun.  So a criminal with a gun, fears neither the police nor the unarmed citizen.  Criminals fear the armed civilian because they know the civilian is more likely to shoot them than a police officer is to shoot them.  We need to let good people carry guns; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Immigration

Every time an illegal alien kills or rapes someone it is a double tragedy.  It is always tragic for one of these crimes to happen to anyone.  It is a double tragedy because the illegal alien should not be here to commit any crime.

Our nation is at war.  We are in a war against an enemy that does not use large conventional armies.  Our enemy strikes in ones or twos or other small groups.  They infiltrate our society and pretend to be average citizens, or typical immigrants.

This nation needs to be secure from all enemies, foreign and domestic.  Part of that means that we need to keep out all illegal aliens, who might commit acts of terrorism or crimes.  We need to track those who overstay their visas and kick them out.  We need to protect our citizens, it's criminal that we don't; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Stay Strong

The first thing we need to do is insist on freedom of religion for all American forces.  American troops should be free to practice their religion as they have always been free.  That means handing out Bibles on their off duty time if they want to do that.  That means having prayer meetings, and wearing Christian or other medals and symbols.

American fought and died for those freedoms, we should not be denying those freedoms to our troops because we might offend the enemy or an allied soldier.  Part of accepting American help is accepting Americans as we are, if you don't like it, don't take our help.

American troops should not be changing the way they operate to celebrate Islamic holidays.  We are not an Islamic nation and we should not operate like one.  We are perceived as weak by our enemies, they don't have a concept of inclusiveness, it is victory or death for them.  We must stop looking weak in front of our enemies; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Shoot Journalists

http://beforeitsnews.com/politics/2015/07/pentagon-journalists-are-unprivileged-belligerents-who-can-be-shot-or-killed-on-sight-2725720.html

As usual the media is giving half the story and using an inflammatory headline to frighten people into thinking the US military is the bad guys.  ISIS and such often record what they are doing to make propaganda videos and recruiting videos.  I hardly consider them to be journalists.

Just as official US Army signal corps photographers are also unprivileged belligerents. Just because you are holding a camera does not mean you are not taking sides.  ISIS and other terrorists often take pictures of what they are doing so they can be used against us and show their power and spread terror.  

A man filming beheadings while people shout support is not an uninvolved individual.  That photographer is an integral part of the event.  Information is power and controlling the narrative is important in the war on terror; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

War on Terror

The United States has huge opportunities all over the world.  There are many nations that are in trouble with radical Islamist terrorists.  We should be working together with those nations to increase freedom, democracy, and peace.

The first thing we need to do is to get the president and his military and political advisers to devise a strategy to defeat radical Islam.  It is not something to be degraded, reduced, diminished.  It needs to be destroyed.  Just as we destroyed fascism in World War Two we should do the same with this ideology.

It will take a combination of politics, religion, money and troops to defeat this enemy.  We should not forswear any option in this battle.  We should consider it as World War Three and spare no effort to destroy it, or we will fight it forever; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Laser

http://www.stripes.com/news/iranian-vessel-pointed-laser-at-navy-ship-helicopter-in-gulf-of-aden-1.357370

The US Navy often operates in the waters around the Middle East, including the Gulf of Aden, off the coast of Iran.  An Iranian ship pointed laser beams at a US Navy ship and a US Navy helicopter.  The ship and helicopter did nothing about it.

In California it is illegal to point a laser at a police officer or at an aircraft.  The reason that it is illegal is that the reasonable assumption is that the offender is pointing the laser to target a weapon.  Modern military weapons often use a laser target designator to direct weapons to the target.

An Iranian ship pointing a laser at a US ship is an act of war, an act of aggression.  It should be met with overwhelming firepower in return.  There is no reason whatsoever to point a laser at a US ship unless intent to shoot them or intimidate them.  Back in the old days, no nation would dare to do this to an American ship.  We have lost our respect; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Justice

They recently unsealed some court documents and found the Bill Cosby was telling people he had drugs so he could dope women and have sex with them.  Why were the court documents sealed in the first place?  

I am opposed to court documents ever being sealed for any reason.  Courts are public services and their activities need to be public.  Everyone deserves due process, even murderers, even Bill Cosby.   I never thought he was "innocent."   The guy used to hang out at the Playboy mansion, what was he doing there, reading the articles?  

Still, I am always suspicious of women who show up 20 or 30 years later with a complaint. Nearly impossible to prove or disprove after that much time, that's why there is a statute of limitations on most crimes.  Where where you on June 7, 1991 at 6:30 p.m., who were you with and can you prove it?  Victims need to report crimes right away, justice delayed is justice denied; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Immigration

Donald Trump is not a professional politician.  He is a businessman.  As such he is used to speaking his mind without first running his opinions and turn of phrase past a focus group and a polling company.  He just tells what's on his mind.

As such, he will say many things that professional politicians will never say.  His recent speech on immigration was a excellent example.  He spoke in generalities and spoke about the crimes that illegal aliens commit.  Those who don't like him will jump on his every perceived error and call for him to drop out of the race.  Instead, they should continue to convince us that his stated policies are wrong, rather than try to shame him into quitting.

Certainly most illegal aliens come here for a better life, but there is a process.  Part of the process is to weed out those who don't belong here, and especially those who have made crime a career.  We need to take better control of our border.  We need to protect the jobs of Americans, and we need to protect Americans from crime and terrorism; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Death

I have been posting about a number of issues over the years.  Sometimes the issues have gotten better, and sometimes they have gotten worse.  One of them got better just today when the California legislature shelved the assisted suicide law.

God gives life and it is up to God to take innocent life.  We have become a nation that is perversely obsessed with death.  We abort thousands of babies every week.  We claim it is a right to murder innocent children.

We watch senseless movies about torture and murder that just become more and more graphic.  We have deranged people commit mass murder and we find ourselves nearly unable to blame them for their crimes.  We watch movies about zombies and we make vampires into good guys in our fiction.  Our nation needs to celebrate life and give up our obsession with death; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

DMAC

Some states are saying they will not longer issue marriage licenses.  The idea is that the state will no longer determine who can get married, it will simply record marriages recorded elsewhere.  That way the state is not endorsing gay marriage.

This is a surrender to the evil forces behind a redefinition of marriage.  Now, seemingly any organization could perform marriages.  There may not be any sort of restrictions on marriage.  I suspect it will be only a short while before every perversion is trying to register their marriage.

There is also the practical circumstances.  There are financial advantages to being married.  Perverted marriages will claim those advantages.  Filing joint tax returns, health and life insurance.  They will require recognition and government approval in other areas, like adoption.  We need a Defense of Marriage Amendment to the Constitution; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Immigration

People who come to live or work in the United States should follow the rules to come here.  The United States is a great nation and we need to act more like a great nation.  One thing nations do is control their borders.

We need to control our borders.  No one should enter the United States without our permission.  No one should stay longer than their allotted time.  The US offers aliens the chance to come here and study, worship, and even work. 

Too many take advantage of our good will and come here to smuggle drugs, or commit crimes or terrorism, or take jobs that Americans should have.  We need to build a wall along our southern border to keep aliens out.  We need to require state and local police to cooperate with immigration authorities.  We need to protect our people, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Government Says

The government says you have to hire people you don't want to hire.
The government says you have to bake cakes for people you don't want to bake cakes for.
The government says you can't name your sports team a name some people might not like.
The government says you can't carry a gun to protect yourself.
The government says you can't save rain water that falls on your own property.
The government says you have to sell your house to the people they want you to sell it to.
The government says you make a mistake on your taxes because you followed the governments advice, you are wrong.
The government says your church can't talk about politics or their tax exemption will be taken away.
The government says it's legal to kill innocent babies in the womb.


This Independence Day, think about the rights we have lost, the individual freedom we no longer enjoy and think about what you can do about it; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Confederate Flag

Some say the Confederate flag stands for slavery.  They say the American Civil War was just about slavery.  They say the flag is a racist symbol.  Well, sort of, there is a lot more to the story.  Several Northern states were slave states too, and they did not leave the Union, as was Washington, D.C.  They don't tell you that much to they?  Does that make the "Union" flag racist too?

How can a slave state not leave the Union?  They could stay in the Union because the issue of slavery was not the whole story of the American Civil War.  The North wanted a high tariff to keep manufactured goods from other countries, mostly Great Britain, out of the country.  They wanted a high tariff because they wanted to sell high priced manufactured goods to the rural South.  The South wanted a low tariff so there would be price competition with the North.

The principle that lead to the Civil War was a dispute over the rights of States to determine what happens within their borders, States Rights.  The issue was slavery.  The Northern states wanted to eliminate slavery and impose that on the South.  An immediate cession of slavery would have meant economic and social disaster for the South.  Slavery was slowly dying all across the civilized world, and it would have died a natural death on it's own, even without the war; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Confederate Flag

Some people like to display the Confederate flag.  Some people don't like it.  I am from California, so I don't feel like I have a dog in this fight.  My family is from Kentucky, and California was a free state, but leaned to the south.

Personally, I don't care what flag people want to fly as long as they are good, patriotic Americans.  I don't believe that flying the Confederate flag makes anyone less of an American.  In the Spanish-American War the people of the South cheered the American Army as they went off to fight in Cuba.  I think that was the final reconciliation of the Southern people to the Union.

Since that time the Confederate flag has mostly been used by people to show pride in their Southern Heritage.  Not slavery, that was only a small fraction of the Southern people who owned slaves.  Rather, respect, hard work, politeness, Southern hospitality.  Sure some have used that flag for racist purposes, but unless someone is wearing a white hood, it does not generally stand for racism; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Stolen Valor

Sometimes I read on line about a person in public who is dressed in the uniform of our nations military.  Frequently there will be a video of an active duty soldier or a real veteran calling out the person in uniform as a fraud.

I think it is reprehensible to wear military uniforms and present yourself as a true member of our armed forces or as a veteran.  It is even worse to claim that you were awarded medals for your service that you did not ear.

People who do this sort of thing seem to be equally divided between poor demented souls who are hardly more than children playing dress up to evil criminals who belong in jail. I do think it should be illegal and people should be arrested and prosecuted for it.  I would make an exemption for theatrical performances and for reinactors.  I would make the penalties minor for a first offense but increase them on subsequent offenses or if someone received something of value by wearing those uniforms; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
