ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?

Dear Editor:

We now have virtually an open southern border allowing illegal immigrants, terrorists and criminals (many with COVID) to disperse throughout the country. The situation is so bad that the press was not allowed to visit the facilities and the border agents had a gag order placed on them. Now that the press has been allowed access we know why they were originally restricted. The First Amendment and the Second Amendment, as well as the oil and gas industry, have been attacked. The federal government is trying to take away (HR-1) states’ rights plus so many executive orders I have lost count (what happened to the U.S. Constitution?) A $1.9 trillion “COVID” relief bill was passed with only about 9% going to COVID relief. You cannot read Dr. Seuss but the Emmys can feature a presentation that would make Larry Flynt blush. Biological males participating in female sports / activities. Elite liberal universities now have separate graduation ceremonies based on race, identification, social status, etc. So much for unity. What’s next, separate water fountains? They also have been discriminating against Asians in their admissions process. (So, who has been promoting hate against Asians?) Gasoline prices are going up, plus the federal government is suggesting raising the gas tax as well as the income tax and the death tax. Then there is the woke cancel culture. And now our secretary of state is reprimanded by the Chinese delegation at their in-person meeting in Alaska. Are you happy with what President Harris and the Democratic Party are doing to our country? Oops, I meant President Biden. “At least we do not have to read President Donald Trump’s tweets.” Fair trade? Not from where I sit. The Democrats are just getting started.

CRISIS IN VISION

Dear Editor:

Just saw the news that the House Democrats passed not one, but two, amnesty bills. With the numerous critical items facing our country now, the House Democrats act on amnesty as if that was a pressing issue facing us while ignoring the ever-growing border / humanity crisis, the ever-growing homicide /crime rates in Democrat ‘governed’ (???) cities and ‘President’ Biden’s reluctance / inability to hold a solo news conference in the past 60 days. Why aren’t the above actual priorities of the DNC, Pelosi and Schumer???!!!

THE REAL CULPRIT

Dear Editor:

A recent letter submitted to the Tribune proclaimed officer Derek Chauvin innocent due to the actions of Mr. Floyd and the fentanyl in his bloodstream. There is no video showing Mr. Floyd violently resisting arrest, but rather pleading for mercy and asking for his mother as he lay defenseless in handcuffs on the ground as Chauvin’s knee gradually deprived his body of oxygen for over 8 minutes. This as three other armed officers looked on. Floyd actually said “They’re going to kill me.” He was right. If there ever was a clear-cut case of police homicide, this is it. Chauvin was in complete control of a defenseless human being. He is fully responsible for his actions here. The vast majority of police officers are good people trying to do the job right. Chauvin’s actions here are a stain on their integrity.

SAYING IT OUT LOUD

Dear Editor:

Thank you to Mr. Andrew Gayre for having the moral courage to publicly and without apology state the facts surrounding the death of George Floyd. Additionally, I share his opinion and stated sentiments regarding the settlement to the survivors. Further, when criminals are made heroes, as has happened in this case, we have to know that the world has lost all sense of right and wrong. God help us all!

BRANHAM FOR POS. 4

Dear Editor:

I wish to voice my support for Janie Branham for Humble ISD school board in the upcoming election. We have come to a point where every election is the most important election ever, so we must ensure that the best candidate available with experience and roots in the community is elected. For the open Position 4 on the board, that person is Janie Branham. Belief in the fundamentals of public education is at the core of her being, both as a parent and as an educator. As a parent, her twins have been in Humble ISD since first grade, so the expectations that you and I have as parents and taxpayers in the district are also hers. Further, she has been active in the Humble parent-teacher organizations at the elementary, middle and high school levels. Additionally, she brings in over two decades of experience as a teacher to public education, teaching in Houston ISD. While she worked there, she was responsible for raising funds directly for schools and brought in businesses from the community to talk to the students about the job world. Her combination of life experiences with education will guide her as a contributing board member as Humble ISD continues to navigate the COVID-19 educational environment. We don’t know what the immediate future will hold. To better guide the continuing success of Humble ISD, we should take the opportunity to add an experienced educator and dedicated in-district parent to the Humble ISD school board, a woman who has invested time and resources to the community and is deeply committed to the success of all students in our schools. Janie Branham puts in the time and the effort and is worthy of a position on the board. Election Day is on May 1, with early voting commencing on April 19.
