Neal Barton's POV


Justice and injustice

Major Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death for the 2009 shootings at Fort Hood. I think justice has been served. I also know he was looking for martyrdom after he decided to represent himself.

Hypocrites: 'Let 'er rip'

Remember when so many on the left were mad at George W. Bush back in the early 2000's? We kept hearing about Bush's war when it came to Iraq and Afghanistan and they kept saying we illegally got in the way.

Someone just lost tenure at Harvard

It is amazing sometimes when facts get in the way of a liberal narrative. Here is the question which was asked. "Would Banning Firearms Reduce Murder and Suicide? This was a Harvard study, look it up for yourself.

Mr. President, leave the schools alone

I like it when President Obama goes on vacation because he's playing golf with the beautiful people and not trying to get into my business. Now, he has a new idea.

Let's be careful about this

The president wants more wi-fi at public schools. How are they going to pay for it? Well, you can just call your pals at the FCC and have them tack on a $5 fee to all cell phones. Voila! Problem solved.

The train to nowhere

We are getting closer and closer to the sign up date for "Obamacare." A lot of it is not ready and the entire thing has turned into a big mess with unanswered questions.

Better get drilling fast

I know the president wants to make our energy plan wind, sun and unicorns, but we need to get going right now. Look at all the drilling we have going on in North Dakota. It's booming.

It's a done deal

Well , they've done it. An update to Thursday's POV The GOP leadership has elected to not allow CNN or NBC to moderate any of their debates if CNN and NBC does programs about Hillary Clinton.

Let's change the debate format

The very weak Republican National Committee chief, Reince Prebus, and I hope I said he name correctly, because I sure as heck can't spell it, has had a great awakening. And, it's about time.

They're finally smelling the coffee

NBC news, not exactly a "right-wing" organization, is finally smelling the coffee. This week they have done another report on "Obamacare." This is a report that may be opening the eyes to some.

A more affordable presidential vacation

President Obama is on vacation at Martha's Vineyard and that's okay. The more he is on vacation, the less time he is thinking about spending money. But, that does bring to me to his vacation.

Gun lunacy in Colorado

My wife and I used to go to Colorado once a year. We had friends there and could find our way around like natives.

Catch me if you can

Evidentially, I hit a chord yesterday when we spoke. I mentioned this is not the same country I grew up in, or it seems. Look at what is happening in sports.

I don't recognize my country

A year ago at the Democratic Nationa Convention is heard this several times. Bin Laden was dead and Al-Qaeda was on the run. Since Bush was gone everyone would like us. We even killed Bin Laden at his house.

Too much PC

This is the kind of stuff you cannot make up. But, for a time in my life I lived there, and sadly, this does not surprise me.
