Frenzy takes hold

To the Editor;
The impeachment ship is foundering in the breakers of the Mueller report. From blaming Trump election despondency for their obsessive reporting to outright denial, the old guard media is at a loss to explain how their spin got “unspun” before the eyes of the nation. The old ships are taking on water.

The frenzy to destroy a man, to be his undoing, has Americans wondering if they are witnessing a psychosis of sorts. To be so prejudiced against an individual that some in the public eye are willing to abandon any and all tethers to reason, is unsettling to the average citizen. Americans have begun to recoil from the crazed who crave destruction.

Maine was left in the best financial position it has been in decades, but here too the frenzy took hold. Focused instead on a governor who some found offensive in manner and deed, the quest to destroy his accomplishments engaged at full throttle at the inaugural of his replacement. Gov. Mills has left no dollar unspent.

Moving at a frenetic pace, the Democrat-controlled branches of Maine’s government have managed to spend themselves into the red before the end of the first quarter of the first year of Gov. Mills’ first term, surpassing the predictions of even the most cynical prognosticators of doom. Mainers have been barraged by a blunderbuss of tax increase bills leaving the Maine taxpayer feeling fiscally bludgeoned and scurrying to hide their wages in every secret chamber they can find knowing that Gov. Tax Mills cometh. With no less than five bills to increase tax on heating oil and fuel, Democrats have served warning that they will tax anything and tax some more to feed their blood-lust to destroy every iota of the accomplishments of the governor they love to hate.
