Rats. Those wily little rodents are much in the news lately, after our President took jabs at Maryland Representative Elijah Cummings who represents Baltimore. It seems that more than one news outlet in that area has done stories, and documentaries describing the rat-infestation problems in Baltimore. It is well-known that rats follow humans wherever they go, or live, and have been since time immemorial (probably since humans settled down in towns and engaged in agriculture). Cities with endemic poverty, like Baltimore, have more rats than other places.
New York City has its own rat problem, in various neighborhoods, says a story in Pravda on the Hudson (hat tip, Prof. Paul Rahe of Hillsdale College), better known as the New York Times.
Los Angeles is also home to an excess of rats, who have brought with them ancient diseases like Typhus, that have not been seen in America in over a century.
Even Austin, Texas has its own rat infestation.
Seattle, which has one of the largest homeless populations in the US, is plagued by new infestations of rats, which like the abundant trash they can find in the homeless camps scattered around the formerly-beautiful city.
And what do all the cities mentioned above have in common? They have been run for decades by, you guessed it, DemocRATS.
