Letter to the Editor

Fasten your seat belts

Tuesday, January 26, 2021

Dear Editor,

“Put a beggar on horseback, and he'll drive you to your grave.” -- this is an old Irish axiom that my mother taught me as a very young boy

That our new president is on his way to fulfilling the truth of this axiom by becoming the perfect example of such a “beggar” -- there can be no doubt.

He began on his first day in office through “executive” order, by the undoing “of our leaving the “Paris Climate Accord”--with many more to come.

One Democratic Congresswoman, publicly stated that she is concerned that rather than unifying the country, he intends to target or go after those who did not vote for him. So, expect a rough ride for the next four years. The ‘fickle” voters picked a lemon, not a man of wisdom.

  • “Put a beggar on horseback, and he'll drive you to your grave.” _ I don't think that is the actual saying. -- Should be " Put a beggar on horseback and he'll drive the horse to its grave".

  • Accepting reality is a challenge for some.
