Neal Barton's POV

No such thing as a 'do-nothing' government

One day, right before Christmas, I almost spilled my coffee when I heard people, mainly uninformed journalists, complaining we had a "do-nothing congress."

Marcus and Scott had a better year than the president

Here we are in an East Texas deep freeze. Scott Chesner and Marcus Bagwell told you, months ago, this winter would be rough, simply by looking at the position of the jet stream.

What a way to spend a 'vacation'

I'm sorry but I have to re-visit this from Thursday.

A ship stuck 'on the rocks'

I'm sure you all have seen the media reports concerning the 52 crew-member ship being stuck in the Antarctic ice.

Poll madness

If the news is too bad, stay away from and don't report it. Sound ridiculous? Even juvenile? Enter President Obama's pollster. 

What difference does it make? A lot.

Many in Conservative media are refuting a report in the New York Times. The Times is reporting that Al Qaeda had nothing to do with the attack on Benghazi back in 2012.

It's not melting

Here we are with snow in the Pacific Northwest and already recovering from a wintry burst of weather across the country a few weeks back.

Green bullets, indeed

I spent my lunch hour looking for the best priced ammunition and after reading the following, I realized I'll soon be paying even more than I am now.

Let's not forget about these guys

There is no one who has respect for the military more than me and as you get older you realize what sacrifices have been made so we could have and keep our American way of life.

We need a good guy with a gun

I can't think of anything worse than a school shooting. The past few years every time there was a school shooting, some very naive and, I guess, well-meaning folks, usually politicians, aim to start grabbing guns

Shame on you fake Santa

Have you seen the new "Greenpeace Fake Santa?"

Did the president say that?

Oh, boy. You can keep your insurance and doctor, period. That's that's what the president said, period. Click the video to see what I mean. Did the president say that?

There are consequences

A lot of news has happened since we last spoke. Today, I see some fast food workers will go on strike for one day, soon.

A little bit of this, a little bit of that

Here we are on the eve of Thanksgiving again. The president wants us to remember him before we eat our meal and praise the healthcare plan he has laid out before us.
