Biden’s supporters are oblivious to the consequences

My last letter to the editor used the “frog in the water” analogy about what is going on in this nation and a subsequent letter to The Herald felt that this was an unfair analogy which, of course, proves my point.

Most of us are comfortably back stroking in nice warm water not even realizing that the heat is going up. The rest of us are trying to jump to safety before it’s too late.

Biden and Harris keep acting as if nothing is going on at our southern border while unaccompanied children are being abused and treated like animals. People including terrorists and criminals and people infected with covid are streaming into our country with no idea where they are ending up and we, the taxpayers, will be footing the bill for all of this. Open borders will eventually destroy this nation. I’m sorry, but if you are in this country illegally you are illegal!

Now Biden is trying to force this multi-trillion “infrastructure” bill, which is about social engineering rather than roads, bridges and highways, down our throats. Meanwhile the taxes on the middle class (are you aware of what’s happening in Olympia?) will be skyrocketing. I’m feeling the heat; are you?

Now there’s an attempt to pack the Supreme Court and the assault on the Second Amendment is going strong. All of this under the watch of “Sleepy Joe” Biden who seems to be oblivious to the consequences of his words, actions, and executive orders. He is a prime example of a career politician who has been in politics too long. Mark Twain once said: “Diapers and politicians should be changed often … and for the same reason.”
