Neal Barton's POV


Have we lost our minds

Why are we so intent to play politics to the point we are willing to put our fellow countrymen and allies in peril?

Even in death, you're not green enough

There is an organization called the Urban Death Project, and Katrina Spade is Founder and Director. She writes in the Huffington Post, even when we meet our maker, we will continue to foul Mother Earth.

Thank you, for your money

My, goodness. They love to spend our money. This, from the Washington Times:

I hope they stay there

We try and honor all veterans as much as we can. We know whether you were in combat or had another job that it was sacrifice. Fear, loneliness, and I'm sure sometimes...hope, may have been lost.

Keep our money here

I want to speak with you about something that is rally important to me. And that is supporting our area this holiday season. You can do that by shopping local businesses.

Mitt, go away

I wish Mitt Romney would go back to his yacht or whatever he does now and stay out of politics.

Advice for Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you get a chance to spend it the way you want to . Even if you don't, we all need to reflect and think about the things for which we are grateful. There are many.

What's really going on

I'm reading a great book right now about Roger Ailes. Long before he built FOX News with Rupert Murdoch's money, he was a political advisor.

Who needs rules?

Remember that song by Paul Simon called Kodachrome? It had that line "when I thin back on all the crap learned in high school."

Chandler Police warn of roof scammers targeting elderly

Authorities are warning of scam artists preying on East Texans in the Chandler area.

Obamacare, the lost jobs

This last week, we delved into the intricacies of Obamacare-- about how the law was sold on a false premise.

Lies and more lies

It's time to sign up for Obamacare again, you ready? Gallup shows the approval rating for this turkey of an insurance program thrown at America through crooked deals and lies. People know it's a mess.

No degree required

Let me first say I am a college grad and in no way am I putting down higher learning. But, the world is changing and maybe everyone doesn't need a degree in Russian literature.
