Neal Barton's POV


What's wrong with our country?

Watch the video above for Monday's Point of View. You can email me at or facebook me at KETK Neal Barton.  

Leadership void

What in the world is going on with the president and who is advising him?

Rebuild the Secret Service

The Secret Service is once again on the hot seat and they should be. This has become a joke.

Austin, the people's money waster

Once again, the People's Republic of Travis County wastes the public's money. Just like what is happening to Rick Perry happened to Tom DeLay.

Are we being told the truth?

Let me ask your opinion. Are we ready for Ebola? I don't know, I really don't.

No plan for ISIS?

I'm still stunned and amazed yesterday when the president actually said at a news conference that he doesn't have a plan to deal with ISIS.

Political mish-mash

There is so much news going on right now. First of all, our president is rumored to be thinking of doing a deal with the United Nations.
