Political Campaigns

In the ideal political campaign the politician should never say anything bad about his opponent.  He should only say what his positions are on the issues.  The job of the candidate is to sell his product, himself, to the voters.

In the ideal political campaign the politician should never send his minions to disrupt the opponents rallies.  In the free market of ideas we should be free to compare ideas without the distraction of people shouting and protesting.

In the ideal political campaign every dime contributed to the candidate would be made public.  The name and city of the donor and the amount they have given should be public knowledge.  There should be no limit on how much money an individual can give.  All money should be given by individuals, not unions, businesses, or other organizations; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Police Deaths

Eleven police have been killed in the line of duty so far this year.  Last year it was March before the first officer was killed in the line of duty.  The President sends representatives to the funeral of thugs who get killed attacking police.

The FBI investigates local police departments, even when there is no evidence that they did anything wrong; despite local and state investigations already in progress.  The media ignores attacks on police or downplays them.

This weekend a young police woman was sworn in on Friday.  She worked her first shift on Saturday, and was killed before the shift was over.  The President did not speak to the nation about it, and the celebrity who won an Oscar spoke about global warming.  Another sign our nation is in decline; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Scare the RINOs

Donald Trump keeps winning elections and caucuses.  The establishment and RINO Republican politicians finally seem to be interested in working together to fight a common foe; Donald Trump.  They can't fight radical Islam, but they can fight an outsider.

I don't know if Donald Trump would be a very good president, I have many concerns about his social agenda.  I don't think he cares about abortion, and stopping the homosexual agenda among other things.

I do believe he may be good for the economy.  I think he may be able to stop some of the inbreeding and corruption in Washington.  There are too many insider deals and special privileges given to elected officials and their friends.  I hope the establishment gets scared enough of Trump to change their ways, but I doubt it; that's that view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Hillary Investigation

Recently on Facebook I have seen an anti-Hillary Clinton meme that says "those who are under criminal investigation should not be allowed to run for office until they are cleared of all charges."  This seems very appealing because Hillary Clinton is an unsympathetic character and most conservatives don't want her to run for election.

If an unscrupulous person were running a law enforcement agency, they could come up with a reason to investigate almost anyone.   That would give them a veto over almost anyone running for office.  Any state or local police organization could prevent someone from running for president, governor or other office, just by opening an obviously unfounded, politically motivated investigation.

Even if it were only for Federal crimes, that means the FBI could be used as a political tool to falsely accuse people of crimes, only to clear them just after the election.   I loath Hillary and I think she is guilty, but we are innocent until proven guilty and our rights should not be taken until we are proven guilty.  We lose our rights to run for office, vote, or own guns only when convicted, not accused; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

RINO vs Trump

Recently, Donald Trump has been winning elections.  I am now reading articles that Carson and others need to drop out of the race.  They are not being told to drop out because they have no chance of winning.

They are being told to drop out for the good of the party.  They are being told that Trump is bad for the Republican party.  The party elites like to control who runs and what they do when they are office. 

That's exactly why people like Carson and Trump are running in the first place.  That's why Trump in particular is doing well.  Conservatives, both Republican and independent are glad to see Trump run because he is not part of the Republican in Name Only power struggle.  I am not convinced Trump will be the best choice for president, but I am glad he is a wake up call to the Republican establishment to stop taking conservatives for granted; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Insiders

Jeb Bush has dropped out of the race for President.  I think this is a good thing.  We should not select presidents from a tiny group of Washington insiders.  His father and brother were already president and that plenty for any family.

Hillary Clinton should also drop out of the race for President.  It's bad for the nation to have a husband and wife as president.  We have 300 million people in the nation, certainly we can find someone from a family that has never been president.

Too often we have been electing Washington insiders as President.  We need people with experience in the real world.  People who served in the military, people who owned and built businesses.  We need people who have had to live under the laws created by Washington; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Autopsy

I had a conversation with some people about Justice Scalias' death.  Many of them are complaining that there was no autopsy.  They are concerned that a 79 year old man with high blood pressure and a heart condition has died in his sleep.  They claim there is come conspiracy to murder him so that President Obama can stack the court.

These same people, if there was a autopsy would claim it was faked.  They would say it was all part of the conspiracy.  They would say that Obama's minions were able to murder the justice and then fake his autopsy.

There was no murder.  There is no conspiracy.  Our nation has many problems, and many of them are directly the result of President Obama and his terrible policies; both foreign and domestic.  There is no way to keep a conspiracy of that magnitude under wraps for very long and anyone would be foolish to try such a thing; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Communist Stock Exchange

http://www.bloombergview.com/articles/2016-02-17/congress-is-wary-of-chinese-deal-for-chicago-stock-exchange

A company that is partially owned by the Communist government of China is planning on buying the Chicago Stock Exchange.  They want to gain greater access to American markets and get high technology for Chinese companies. 

Neither of those goals is good for the United States or for American companies.  This is typical of the deals that are signed with Chinese firms.  The Communist government owns some small portion of nearly every Chinese company.

That allows them to know everything that goes on in the company.  The Communist government than can help other companies, because they own parts of them.  The Communists can also use the company and their information and skills to further their political agenda; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

RIP Justice Scalia

 http://www.aol.com/article/2016/02/13/supreme-court-justice-antonin-scalia-has-died-at-the-age-of-79/21312334/?icid=maing-grid7|main5|dl1|sec1_lnk2%26pLid%3D68372240

Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia has died suddenly.  He was a constitutional conservative appointed by President Reagan.  He has stood by his conservative principles and not legislated from the bench.

This is a test for the Republicans who control the Senate.  Are you a Republican or a RINO?  Can conservatives count on the Republicans standing firm in their principles or not?  We don't need anymore progressive, liberal, far left judges on the court.

They need to block ANY nomination by Obama until after the election.  Period.  It's time to play hardball or get out of the game.  Any Republican who votes for an Obama nominee should be kicked out of the party; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Obey The Law

 http://www.policeone.com/social-media-for-cops/articles/74369006-Police-refute-claim-Princeton-professor-was-arrested-due-to-race

If you don't believe the police should arrest people in obedience to an arrest warrant, when should they make an arrest?   If you don't believe arrest warrants should be issued for parking tickets, then have the state legislature change the law. 

The professor had nothing happen to her that does not happen to most people in similar circumstances who get arrested for a minor crime.  Obey the law or pay the fine or suffer the consequences. 

Police are reactive, and only get involved when people violate the law.  Enforcing minor laws is all part of their job, what is the alternative?  Maybe she should slow down a bit so she does not get stopped for speeding, that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Victory

President Obama keeps telling us he is going to  "degrade and destroy" ISIS.  Somehow that does not seem inspirational.  Degrade them sounds like we are going to make fun of them, or perhaps we are going to gradually wear them down.  

It is good to here that he intends to destroy the enemy, but he does not seem to know who the enemy is in this war.  He claims they are not Muslims.  ISIS says they are Muslims.  If you are not sure who the enemy is, how can you destroy them?

"In war there is no substitute for victory," said General Douglas MacArthur.  Degradation does not seem like victory.  Even a pledge to destroy ISIS does not actually sound like victory.  Where is the victory?  What will victory look like?  What are our goals in the war against Radical Islam?  How will we know when we have won, when we don't even know who we are fighting or what our victory conditions are?  Degrade and destroy is no substitute for victory; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Gasoline

The summer blend of gasoline used in California is supposed to burn cleaner.  It also costs more so the state gets more sales tax, since sales taxes are based on total price. There is also a separate tax per gallon, and we pay the sales tax on the per gallon tax too; tax on tax. 

No one else uses this blend. We have only one refinery in Southern California and they won't let us build more refineries here in California due to over-regulation. So companies build refineries in other states and then truck or pipe the gasoline here, to further increase the cost. 

The liberal Democrats don't want you to have a car, they want you to ride in a public bus.  A public bus driven by a union bus driver, so they can control where you go and when you go there.  We need to drop the summer blend and use the same gasoline as everyone else; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Responsibility

President Obama had two years of Democrats in control of the Congress.  He did not stop the wars, close Guantanamo, or do much else for those two years.  Democrat President Harry Truman used to say, "The buck stops here." 

Part of being a leader is to take responsibility and to set the example.  President Obama has failed to do that in his presidency.  President Obama simply tries to pass off blame onto President Bush.  Even it if was Bush's fault, it's Obama's responsibility once he took the oath.  If he could not get the job done, then he should not have run for a second term.

I believe that President Obama has failed to do much of what he promised to do in either of his runs for office.  Our nation is worse off in almost every measure.  We still have major wars in the Middle East, our economy is very slow, more people are on food stamps than ever, and vast numbers of people have given up even looking for work.  Jimmy Carter is now the second worst president we ever had; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Japanese Jesus

https://churchpop.com/2016/02/02/japanese-christian-art/


Since we don't have a description of Jesus we cannot know what he or the Apostles looked like other than speculation. I actually like that different cultures interpret Jesus in their own style, culture and race because it makes Him more the Savior of all Mankind, rather than just one type of people.

So when I get a Christmas card that shows a Black Baby Jesus, or a Hispanic one, or some other type of Christ Child, I am pleased that all people can celebrate Him together; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.

Fences and Jobs

To build a wall with Mexico we put a tax on every transaction that sends money out of the country. Mexican illegal aliens send about $20 billion to Mexico each year. A 10% tax would bring in $2 billion per year. That buys a lot of fencing. 

Many American factories closed and were shipped to Communist China, and Americans lost their jobs. US companies did that because the Chinese hourly labor costs were less, fewer regulations on almost everything, and much lower taxes. If we cut taxes, decrease regulations and put a 10% tax on everything imported from China, then many of those jobs will come back to the USA. Nothing is free. Do teachers and doctors work for free? How do you pay them if health care and college is free? You take money from other people in the form of taxes. That causes more people to stop working or take jobs overseas. It also increases prices because costs are increased by increasing taxes. 

What jobs will all these college educated people be doing? How will your degree in gender studies translate into a nation with more jobs? Bernie Sanders has never worked for anyone in his life nor has he ever run a business. I have done both of those things and know how business works. Higher taxes kills jobs; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
