Letter to the Editor: On Biden’s Achievements as President

February 7, 2022

To the Editor,

Constantine Scaros complained that President Biden had exacerbated the highly lucrative pipeline, Keystone Pipeline XL project. He stated that houses need to be heated and autos have to be fueled like, without it a disaster was approaching. There already are 185 oil pipelines and 34 under development. There was no good side to the project. Had it been completed it would have emitted a ton of greenhouse gases. More importantly, it would have endangered wildlife, much of it already facing extinction. That pipeline was going to Canada anyway. So, it could hardly affect our heat or travel plans. But, he forgot to mention that that pipeline’s permit was issued by our tax-evading, draft dodging, billionaire, Donald Trump.

An even more important fact is that that pipeline was invading, unlawfully, the Sioux Indian Native American tribal land and they have been fighting to protect their properties and their water for centuries. It benefited only the trans-national corporation. The Native American Rights Fund had sued the Trump administration for numerous violations of their existing laws. But to Trump money is the Trump card. Never is it mentioned that Trump refused to adhere to the safety measures issued by science and the doctors when the epidemic began. And, he is the main reason why so many died. Yet, when he was affected he ran to Walter Reed, the best hospital.

To date, Pres. Biden, thankfully, has recognized National Indigenous Peoples’ Day (same day as Columbus Day). He criticized Kellogg’s for threatening the workers with dismissal when they had the right to organize under the, Protecting the Right to Organize Act. He ordered the removal of all lead pipes in homes and apartments. He ordered COVID test kits FREE. Recently, he put before Congress an act to make repairs to all bridges and other dated structures. (Noticed the bridge in Pennsylvania?) All this in the first year of his presidency. What had Trump done but cage and separate South American and Mexican children from their parents, install his own children as White House advisors and cause heightened hatred and January 6th that divided the country.

Mr. Scaros criticizes our president for speaking without a mask, well, I have to add that he also doesn’t wear one when he eats. Mr. Scaros has given the Biden administration a C minus. But, I give Constantine Scaros a D.
