Classic Climate Change



I read an article recently in which a liberal claimed that someone was a "classic climate change Denier of the highest order."  This is what passes for debate these days.  If a person is wrong on the facts, then argue the facts.

If a person is right on the facts, then don't argue the facts, call them names and attack them personally.  The whole "Global Warming" debate has degenerated into name calling.  Many of those who claim to be scientists are unable to explain the lack of warming they have predicted.  There have been several scandals where the scientists data appears to have been falsified.

Rather than give up on global warming is caused by capitalist nations who must surrender control and money to the Third World, they have changed the debate.  It's now Climate Change.  So data showing temperatures increased or decreased feeds their narrative.  That way the facts no longer matter, but then that was true all along.  That's the view from a classic climate change Denier of the highest order and the Hysterical Right Wing.

Character



There is a meme making it's way around the Internet that shows Colin Powell and a quotation by him saying that many Republicans are racists and that's why they oppose President Obama.  Of course the quote is not cited as to the date or time, and it does not explain why Colin Powell considers himself a Republican if racisim is such a problem in his party.  

There are stupid people in all political parties. I oppose President Obama for the same reasons I oppose Hillary Clinton, Jerry Brown, Joe Biden and Al Gore, their policies. The Democrats have controlled all of our largest cities for decades and they are falling apart. Crime is rampant, jobs are scarce and the only solution they have is more regulations and higher taxes. 

The morality of our nation is falling farther down every year. Divorce, abortion, homosexual behavior are increasingly common, random sex, are destroying the soul of our nation, yet the Democrats, including President Obama, and Hillary Clinton, celebrate these behaviors.  I believe we need to oppose people based on their policies.  I am opposed to President Obama for the same reason I oppose all Democrats, the content of their character; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Abortion

The right to keep an bear arms shall not be infringed.  Yet that right is infringed constantly.  The right to an abortion is not even listed in the Constitution, yet it is rarely infringed.  The government ignores the will of the people and permits the death toll to climb to 50 million aborted children.

If you are fourteen years old and want a pistol, the government will buy you one and not tell your parents.  If you want a gun there is no waiting period or background check needed.  If you need a gun right away, you don't have to show identification or have to get fingerprinted.  If someone is opposed to guns and pickets a gun shop they might get arrested. 

No wait, that's abortion.  I got those two confused, apparently.  Abortion is murder, it takes the life of an innocent person.  The right to keep and bear arms is the right to self defense.  It is a God given right that the government should not take from us; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Gasoline Prices



In California we pay more for gasoline than just about anyone else in the nation.  There is a high sales tax.  We also pay a state tax on each gallon of gasoline.  These taxes are supposed to go to our transportation system.  Most people think that means to build and maintain roads.  Naturally the government uses the money for other projects after they "borrow" it from the highway fund.  Of course, it seldom if ever gets paid back.  

California government requiring extra additives in gas sold here increases the price.  California government allows existing refineries to expand in place.  California won't let new refineries be built at new locations.  

That has the effect of increasing the prices by creating artificial shortages. It decreases competition because new companies can't build refineries here.  It prevents using new technologies to make fuels because the old plants may be too expensive to upgrade.  Every time a Californian pays an extra dollar per gallon, know that a large part of that dollar is due to a corrupt, immoral, and anti-business state government; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Trump

Donald Trump is doing well in the polls and in the debates.  I am not sure he would be a good president, but I am glad he is running.  Many people are supporting him.  I think that his popularity is not so much because they like Donald Trump, as it is that the dislike so many others who are running.

In the past few election cycles the Republicans have trotted out tired, old, white guys who act entitled to the position of nominee.  They speak in boring platitudes and act as if we should vote for them only because they are the nominee, not because they stand for what the people want.

Conservatives have been taken for granted in the Republican party ever since Ronald Reagan was president.  Conservatives need to be energized, because it's the conservatives who get out the vote, give money, and work hard for the campaign; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Death Penalty



The death penalty is a deterrant to future murders.  Many people don't want to risk death to complete a criminal act.  Those who are put to death will never again kill anyone.  People who work in prisons and have to guard death row inmates are constantly at risk for attack and even murder.

We have overwhelmingly voted in favor of the death penalty in California at least three times.  We have recalled three State Supreme Court Justices who overturned the death penalty.  Never before had a Supreme Court Justice been recalled.  

Yet, we still have over 700 inmates on death row.  We have changed our death penalty method to lethal injection from the gas chamber to make it more humane.  Yet, we still have no executions.  We have only executed about 3 people in the last 20 years.  If the death penalty is not applied swiftly and routinely, then the clear will of the people is thwarted, and justice is denied to the victims, the families and to society; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

The Pope

The Pope came to America and he read an address that was only a few paragraphs long.  About a third of it was about climate change.  Where is global warming in the Bible?  Why is the Pope coming to the United States to lecture us about climate change?

The United States just legalized homosexual same sex marriage.  The courts are hearing cases were adults are trying to marry children, and were close relatives are trying to marry each other.  The United States has gone from 90% Christian to 70% Christian in the last 50 years. The United States does well over a million abortions per year.  The number of divorces is about equal to half of the number of marriages.  Millions of Americans live in sin and vast numbers of children live in single parent households.  Obamacare has sued Catholic healthcare plans that won't pay for abortions and birth control.  Tens of thousands of Americans are murdered and commit suicide each year.  Our homeless number in the hundreds of thousands.

Still the Pope chose to essentially ignore those many moral issues and instead lectured us on global warming.  The temperature may or may not be growing.  We may or may not be able to do anything about it.  The moral issues of our day could be solved in an instant if people would only turn to Christ and repent.  The shepherd should not be telling the sheep about their car emissions, but rather about their souls; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Taxes







In 1955 dollars that's 3,5 million dollars today. Tax rates had nothing to do with your parents and grandparents being able to own houses and cars, they were not provided by the tax payers. We did not go to the moon in the 1950s, we went in 1969. 

The middle class existed long before 1950. The post WWII boom of nearly full employment and President Eisenhower kicking out 1.5 million illegal aliens to keep jobs here at home as well as high tariffs to keep out foreign goods.  This helped to fuel our economy. 

High taxes on the rich only encouraged them to tie up money overseas or in investments that lost money on paper.  We were terribly short of consumer goods in the 1940's.  From 1942 until 1945 there was no civilian car production.  Soldiers returning from war wanted houses to start families.  The home building boom and the new technologies invented during the war allowed us to tax people at high rates and still have a booming economy; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
