Homeless

Once convicted of homelessness, I would not put the homeless in regular jails.  I would create a new system of low security housing, based on the old open bay barracks of the military.  The inmates would be required to do all the maintenance themselves.

The guards would monitor everything by camera and could respond whenever someone is in distress or in a fight.  The inmates would do all the food preparation and dish washing.  The longer they are there, the more training they would receive to maintain the facility.

They are there because we treat stray dogs better than we treat the homeless.  People who are so mentally ill they can't make it in society should not be tossed away like trash.  They need to be cared for and helped along their path; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Jail the Homeless

Being homeless should be illegal.  It should be illegal because many homeless people are addicted to drugs or alcohol.  Many homeless people are mentally ill.  A fair portion of them are addicted and mentally ill.

If they are arrested, then they are put in jail.  In jail they get a clean, dry, warm bed.  They get free meals, three times a day.  They get free medical care for whatever illness they have.  They get free clothing and they get to bathe.

People arrested for being homeless should be tried like anyone else accused of a crime.  They should then be sentenced, depending on the number of previous convictions of homelessness and drug abuse status.  A first offense should bring only a couple days and night in jail.  Just enough to get cleaned up a bit.  A second offense, should get a month in jail.  Third offense, three months, and a fourth and subsequent offense a year; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Debates

Donald Trump is staying out of tonight's Republican presidential debates.  I have not been happy with the debates from any of the networks.  Rather than be an opportunity for the electorate to see the various candidates present their views and policies, they have become opportunities for the media to abuse the candidates. 

The moderators make speeches, and try to get the candidates to argue with one another.  They are more interested in pressing a liberal agenda and making the candidates look bad then they are about informing the people.

I think the Republican party should host the debates.  They should select whoever they want to ask the questions.  They should have all the Republican candidates in the debates, even if they are low in the polls.  As long as a candidate makes it to the ballot he should be able to debate.  The party should host the debate and then allow the networks to show it, unedited and live, and rotate through them; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Hunting

Why is shooting an animal worse than killing a cow in a slaughterhouse?  Traditionally, animals killed by hunters are eaten, and all the various parts used for leather, etc.   Hunting licenses also are used to pay for rangers, habitat preservation and wildlife management. 

There are more deer in North America now than when Columbus landed because of fees paid for by hunters.  Hunting a male lion permit costs $25,000.00 plus all the various fees for the safari, etc, typically $1,000 per day. 

How do you expect the poor people of Africa to make a living without hunting?  Farming destroys wild animal habitat.  Poaching pays a lot, and wastes animals.  How many non-hunters do you know who have donated $26,000+ for African wildlife preservation?  Hunting is actually good for animals; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Student Loans

Colleges are making lots of money off of student loans.  The government uses taxpayer dollars to loan money to students that they spend on college tuition.  The colleges then employ staff and make a profit on the deal.

The students are then stuck with large loans and in a soft job market have little incentive or ability to pay them back.  Many students get the loan payments deferred so they are not paying on the loans at all, often for years and sometimes never pay them back.

The colleges should loan the students the money from their own funds.  As it is now, the schools have no stake in the outcome of the students lives.  If the student never graduates, the school has their money.  If the student never gets a job in their field of study, the school still has their money.  If the student never pays back their loan, the school still has their money.  The only one in the system who  has no risk is the school; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Terrorists

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-34814203

France has very strict gun controls.  Of course, bombs and grenades are outlawed for civilian use.  Despite this a group of Islamic radical terrorists murdered at least 130 people and injured over 350 more people.

Some of them had traveled to Syria and back again.  They had been identified as possible terrorist suspects, but this was useless information to sit in a file rather than stop their behavior.  They had been posting on social media that they believed in jihad.

The people of Paris were innocent civilians going about their business.  No different from the people in the Charlie Hebdo attacks.  The West has worried too much about humanitarian concerns when we should be worrying about victory in the war; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Serious Debate

Every election cycle the main stream media will always do several things.  The Communist Party, USA will endorse the Democrat nominee.  The main stream media will report it once and then ignore it.  The KKK and Nazi's will endorse the Republican nominee.  The main stream media will play this up and ask the candidate about it, over and over again; hoping the nominee will make a mistake in his response.

The Republican nominee will be depicted as unintelligent.  Rather than debate his ideas, the media will interview people who will tell us he is "stupid," and an "idiot."  It's easier to call people names than it is to debate their ideas.  Labeling them as ignorant means they don't need to be debated.

The media will complain that the Republican nominee hates women.  They will talk about how the nominee disrespects women, does not pay them enough money, and generally dismissed women as unequal to men.  Again, they won't debate particular policies, they will simply try to give the impression that Republicans are racist, ignorant, women haters.  They have done this at least since the Reagan Administration; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Covet Not

You shall not covet.  Don't lust after things that are not yours.  Don't long to have that which is not for you to have.  Longing and lusting often result in actions.  Lust for a woman can lead to adultery.  Longing for things often leads to theft.

There has been a whole political campaign of late, based on covetousness.  Give us free college.  Give us free healthcare.  The government cannot give anything that it has not first taken from someone else.

Free exchange of material possessions is freedom.  God asks that we be good stewards of the gifts he gives us, but he asks, not forces us to help others.  Charity that is forced is not charity.  Charity must come out of the goodwill of the giver; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Navy

http://news.usni.org/2015/07/09/navy-studying-implications-of-distributed-lethality-in-wargames-series

The American Navy is too small.  Our navy is smaller than it was before Pearl Harbor was attacked by Japan, in 1941.  As recently as the Reagen Administration we had a 600 ship navy.  Since that time we have whittled away at it as the need for a large navy has increased.

As a result of this tiny navy, they are looking at ways to make the navy do more with fewer ships.  They are adding weapons to ships to make more ships able to defeat enemy ships and planes.  Ships designed for specific purposes are now intended for more general combat.

For over a decade we have been at war.  We fail to use the force needed to end the war.  We neglect our navy so we can't fight a conventional war.  Russia and Communist China are moving into deep water again and we not ready; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Truth

You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.  Everything from perjury to gossip is rife in our nation today.  Even a recent president perjured himself in a court hearing.  Whole websites are devoted to gossip.

By bearing false witness you destroy a reputation.  By speaking things that you don't know to be true you destroy what can take a lifetime to build, an honest person trying to live an honest life.  Perjury is so common now that it is seldom even prosecuted in courts any longer.  It is expected the accused will lie to avoid conviction.

Truth is from God, and when we lie we move farther and farther from truth and from God with each lie.  It is important to tell the true.  We not only risk damage to other people's reputation, but also damage to our own soul; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Say No to Castro

President Obama has recognized the government of Cuba.  He wants to normalize relations with them.  He is exchanging ambassadors and opening our embassy.  He is hoping to normalize trade with them and do other things that will help the economy of Cuba.

He has done this without any concessions from Cuba.  The sanctions were put in place because Cuba is run by a brutal dictator, Fidel Castro and his brother.  They have murdered people and put thousands of people in prison.  Cuba is so bad people risk their lives to get here for freedom.

The sanctions should have stayed in place until the Castro brothers died.  Then we should have done our best to force political change in Cuba.  The Cuban people deserve freedom, not continued Communist oppression.  President Obama has done the people of Cuba a dis-service by recognizing the Castro government; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Theft

You shall not steal.  It is not right to take things that don't belong to you.  That's very simple, very straight forward and clear.  Yet often people try and justify theft.  There is no justification for taking from other people.

What if I steal bread from the baker to feed my starving children?  What happens to the bakers children?  Will they starve if their fathers food is stolen?  What happens when your children are hungry again tomorrow?  Will you steal again?

What if the baker resists having his bread stolen?  Will you harm him to get it?  Will you break another commandment and murder him?  Every situation is different, but the rules are the same, don't steal; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Adultery

You shall not commit adultery.  Don't have sexual relations with anyone unless you are married to them in the eyes of the church.  This would eliminate all homosexual sexual relationships.  It eliminates all incest, and rape. 

Think of all the unwed mothers who would no longer be either unwed or mothers.  That alone would solve so many problems in our society.  Think about the marriages that would be saved if people did not have affairs. 

Think about all the domestic violence and even murders that would not happen if people stayed faithful to this commandment.  The ten commandments were written for our instruction and learning.  They are written to make stable societies, happy families, and good people; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

No Murder

You shall not murder.  The word is murder, not kill.  Sometimes it gets translated as kill, but that is incorrect.  God commands us to kill to enact justice, as in the execution of a murderer.  He also commanded the Israelite's to make war and David was inspired to kill Goliath.

Murder is the destruction of an innocent person; a person who is made in the image of God.  This is why abortion is morally wrong, it is the killing of an innocent person.  Jesus says we are to love our neighbor as ourselves. 

It is immoral to murder our neighbor and immoral to murder ourselves, that is to commit suicide.  We should never kill unless it is morally justified.  Hating someone who is innocent is also a form of murder, it kills there personality as an individual.  Violence should only be used when other methods have failed to resolve a problem and the issue is one of life and death; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Honor Your Father and Mother

Honor your father and your mother.  Ask a group of thirteen year olds if they do this all day every day.  I suspect if they told they truth they would all say they do not honor their parents.  Children are being told in the media and even in the schools to think for themselves and do what they want.

If we ask older people, if they honor their father and mother, we might also get another answer.  Do you take care of your older parents?  Do you listen to them when they talk to you, or do you disregard what they say?

Do you think you know more than they do because they can't operate the latest computer, or maybe can't drive any longer?  Our parents deserve respect and honor.  Our society has failed to do that, to the point were we now simply consider them a bother.  They get put in a "home" or even sent for euthanasia.  That's not honorable; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Monkey Business


There are a million and a half abortions in the USA every year.  Many of those are late term, even full term abortions.  Some of those result in the death of the woman.  The US government spends a billion dollars on abortions every two years.

While humans are being thrown out into the trash, lawyers are working hard to give human rights to chimpanzees.  Great apes are not human.  Great apes are animals.  Great apes are not made in the image of God.  

Animals rights people say things like chimps have 95% of the DNA of people.  Of course they do.  Most mammals are very similar life forms.  With millions of pieces of DNA it only takes a small percentage to make a huge difference.  Chimps are not people.  Chimps don't get human rights; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Sabbath

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.  One day a week should be set aside to worship the Lord.  We should go to church so that we can be with other Christians.  The people are the church, not the building, so be with other Christians, doing Christian things.

God has given us our whole lives, if we are grateful we should give a small part of it back to Him.  Read His word, worship in his church and spend some time in thought, thinking about Him.  In general, we should not work on the Sabbath.

It is important to spend time with God.  If you love someone, you spend time with them.  You need to be there to be reminded of how important God is to your life.   When we set aside one day, we are able to focus on the most important thing in our life; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.  Words and names have power.  Taking the name of the Lord God in vain is a powerful expression of your thoughts towards the Lord.  Casual swear words cheapen our relationship with other people and with God.

When you know someones name you have a relationship with them.  It is important that your relationship with God be a good relationship.  Using the name of the Lord as a swear word is a poor way to have a good relationship.

God should be respected.  God should be worshiped, not used as a bad word.  God should be the focus of our lives, not the focus of a bad relationship.  We are created in the image of God and God loves us.  It is important that we respect the Lord; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Graven Images

You shall not make idols.  Do not make graven images that you worship.  Don't make your own gods.  There is already a God of the universe.  We don't need to make another.  Too many people in the past worshiped statues of carved wood or stone.

Today people worship other things.  They often worship their own bodies.  They watch every morsel they eat, they worry over every chemical or vitamin they eat.  They go to the gym every day and never miss an opportunity to look in the mirror or take their own picture.

It is important to take care of ourselves.  But we should not worship our bodies.  We need to worship the Lord God.  We need to insure that in our desire to stay healthy we also keep spiritually healthy.  We need to keep our focus on God, not just on ourselves; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

You shall have no other gods before Me.  The first commandment.  Don't worship the false gods of fame or fortune.  Many Americans try to become famous.  Sometimes they even try doing things that are evil, just for the attention.

A girl with a purple hairstyle is saying "Look at me."  She worships the god of fame.  She wants to be noticed, to be famous, even if it is just for purple hair.  She has given up the worship of the Lord God and instead longs for the transitory delights of fame.

A man works hard to earn money.  He works day and night.  He works at work, and during his commute.  He works holidays and weekends.  He has given up worshiping the Lord God and instead longs for the false security of fortune.  There is nothing wrong with wanting to be liked by other people.  There is nothing wrong with taking care of your family and obligations.  Neither of these should be the focus of our lives; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

New Years Resolutions

January first is a new year and often seen as a time of new beginnings.  How about we try and do just ten resolutions this year.

  1. You shall have no other gods before Me.
  2. You shall not make idols.

  6. You shall not murder.
  7. You shall not commit adultery.
  8. You shall not steal.
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  10. You shall not covet.
If we all only did these ten things, our lives would be greatly improved; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
