Neal Barton's POV


I want my money back

Back when I was a kid growing up in the 60s, then president Lyndon Johnson launched what he called the "war on poverty."

Ae we at war...yet?

Well, I've been away for a week. Have I missed much? When I left, we were not at war with ISIS. Then, the president intimated we were, but not enough to use the tired old phrase "boots on the ground."

Bush prophecy

Remember back when the Hollywood elites and the Washington Inteligencia said we need to bring all of our troops home? Bush said no and he was called a dummy.

This is beyond politics

Imagine a family vacation: Bag packed, kids in the back of the car, wife all set. You get to the interstate and say "where are we going?" 

The maturation of the president

Brit Hume on President Obama: "This is man Megyn, who's vision of the world has turned out to be a mirage. His own sense of the world on how it would react to him has also turned out to be a mirage.'s the truth

Remember when Al Gore was in the middle of all his glory during the inconvenient truth days? Back then, media spotlight was on him as he promised the world was going to hell in a handbag.

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.

Be like Mexico?

California Governor Jerry brown said this week all of the illegal aliens are welcomed in California. Many governors in America don't agree.

BK has it their way

Remember years ago when Ted Kennedy decided to put a whipping on rich people and had the yacht tax there in the northeast raised because taxes were too low.

Why not Chicago

Today was Michael Brown's funeral in Missouri. The White House sent three representatives to the service.

A marine's letter to ISIS

A military veteran has penned a brutally scathing message to the Islamic State militants in the Middle East who are slaughtering innocent men, women, and children.

Yes, we'll......get back with you

What in the world is going on? First of all even Egypt and Russia are telling the US we better get our act together. Egypt and Russia? They are pointing to the doins' in Missouri. Our leadership in the world is gone as well.

Let's do this differently

This Rick Perry indictment has been the funniest thing I have seen for a while when it comes to politics. Do we call this the politics of desperation?

More facts come out

The name of the officer who shoot the teen in Missouri name was announced Friday. I'm still not sure why.
