To the editor: Why is Joe Biden glorifying January 6th?
It is a fairly simple question. Coming from the guy and party that claims to be tolerant, and wants to stop hate and racism, etc.
To me that day was about joining fellow Americans from around Vermont and our great Nation to support our President, and exercising our Constitutional rights. To Joe Biden and the left it was an “insurrection.” A question for Biden and the Left; how does a “so-called” organized group conduct an “insurrection” of the most powerful country on earth without any guns or other means of destruction?
Prior to the January 2021 activities, law enforcement received intelligence of possible protest at the U.S. Capitol. President Trump offered National Guard personnel. Congressional leaders denied the help, why, because the help was coming from Trump and it didn’t fit their narrative.
Today, it is evident by the actions of President Biden and the left that it is about hate, jealousy, and destroying a man! No one of sound rationale thinking believes that Trump had our nation on the wrong track. The GDP was growing, inflation was low, energy cost for Americans was affordable, our southern borders were under control and safe, he was standing up against the wokeism, we were respected around the world and he was holding NATO accountable. America’s strength and resolve was widely known.
Yes, many Americans did not like Mr. Trump for whatever reason(s). That is your issue, not the President’s. President Trump’s strong leadership and doing the right things for every single American was evident. I can say without reservation, that every American has been negatively impacted by the current President’s bad and horrible policies, especially his fiscal policies.
Biden’s celebration scheduled for the Blue Room on January 6th at the People’s House is disgusting! – Greg Thayer, Rutland
To the editor: 125 billionaires each emit about 3 million metric tons of carbon dioxide on average per year, more than 1 million times the amount emitted by 90% of people. – Oxfam International.
The richest 1% — the more than 60 million people earning $109,000 a year — are by far the fastest-growing source of emissions – Bloomberg.
Why then do politicians continue to place the burden of “solving” the climate crisis on the backs of the poor and the working class?
Because billionaires and millionaires fund their campaigns.
Reject regressive public policies (like EV mandates, carbon schemes, and electrification of heating) until the rich are held proportionately accountable for their unsustainable lifestyles.
Leading by example will always effect change more than hypocrisy. – James Ehlers
