Balloon Clubs Beware, Biden Is Coming For You

Dear Editor,

Isn’t it amazing the level of overreaction this administration can achieve?

Before I go further and to respond to the expected screaming and insults, I realize mistakes can and have been made by others. But let’s be real. Shooting down a balloon club’s balloon without trying to confirm the nature and status of the target is, to say the least, beyond stupid. This is yet another act of overreaction by this administration and their lack of thinking things out.

I am referring to the downing of a balloon belonging to that subversive organization, the Northern Illinois Bottle Cap Balloon Brigade, an amateur balloon organization. In fact, according to Aviation Week, “descriptions of all three unidentified objects shot down Feb. 10-12 match the shapes, altitudes and payloads of the small pico balloons.” By the way, those missiles cost $400,000 each.

They even had the FBI interrogating the balloon club.

Has it come to this?

Anticipate there to be some sort of legislation (sponsored by Democrats) to require balloon clubs to be registered and controlled by the federal government (obviously for a price) and all the red tape and creation of a new federally funded position like a balloon czar. Expect there to be mandatory balloon registration. I also expect some government mouthpiece to step up and set federal balloon standards.

Folks, if anybody doesn’t think this administration and the doddering individual at the head of it needs to be allowed to continue in this way, then it’s too late for us.

What’s next, registration and licensing for model airplanes and drones?

Whoever runs against this man and doesn’t use this kind of overactive thinking and the orders given without thinking it through, obviously doesn’t want to win.

In the meantime, only God can help this country until the next election.

Carpe diem.
