My dad brought something to my attention. He told me that radial tires can't be run in different directios, meaning you can't put the tires from the right side of the vehical on the left side. Has anyone else heard this? Your info is as always appreciated...

The problem used to be that the radial belts would slightly shift or mold themselves in the direction of running, then switching sides would stress the belts in the other direction, causing belt failure, but like JEEPN said, MOST modern radials don't have that problem.
The "rotation" arrows are there because they indicate the direction the tread pattern affords the best traction. You have uni-directional tread that will fail to provide optimum traction in hard- or rainy-driving conditions.
