Eighth Street

The Seguin EDC plans to use recently awarded CARES grant funds to extend Eighth Street in Rio Nogales Industrial Park.

As hard hit as Seguin was by the coronavirus pandemic, the city is in the beginning of a comeback and receiving federal dollars to help.

CARES Act grant funding to the tune of $860,000 is slated to enlarge the Rio Nogales Industrial Park on the city’s north side. The road construction will serve as a welcome to more business and a safety feature, said Josh Schneuker, director of the Seguin Economic Development Corporation.

While some may see this cash award from the CARES Act as well deserved and necessary, I see it as a sign of financial incompetence on behalf of the people in Washington.

Does anyone not understand that every dollar that is being spent, EVERY dollar, is borrowed? Does anyone recognize we have a National Debt which is over $28 Trillion, or 129.83% of GDP? Does anyone recognize the threat that Washington poses to our national financial health - a national security concern?

If you don't see the above, then count yourself as educated. If you knew the above and still believe this 'grant' is logical and needed, then shame on you.

I condemned the idiotic and unpatriotic behavior at the Capitol on the 6th of January with millions of conservatives, but if this is what is considered reasonable governance, then Congress fails to see why rational people are afraid and becoming restless.

We have spent our money, spent our kids college money, and now we're stealing from our kids lawn mowing money. Pathetic.
