The Better Rat Trap

We live in an age of miracles, which 99.9% of the population take for granted without the least thought on how we come to have such mundane witchcraft.

A scant 6 generations ago, the horse or shanks mare was the main motive power of the land for the individual and steam powered devices, fired by wood or coal were the order of the day for long distance travel, be it by land or by sea.

This newfangled thing called electricity was at it’s infancy and the mechanical power to produce it came from swift moving water. The capture of wind for motion was all but gone except for a few remaining grist mills, many of which also used water power where such was available.

You need light, toast, heat, cold or mindless entertainment, just flip a switch. Most know to not stick their fingers into an electrical device, a conclusion arrived at by way of many preceding Darwin award winners. And yet, a sizeable swath of our population seems to think that there are “good” sources of energy and “bad” ones, with zero thought on what maintains their standard of living.

After raising 3 children, educated by the public school system in the 1990’s it became abundantly clear that practical knowledge and the history of advancement of the human race are no longer a subject of interest to educators. A trend that has accelerated to the present, where critical thinking and understanding of consequences for actions taken have all but vanished.

Efficiency has always been the holy grail of humanity, not because of its benefits but because we are basically lazy, so the less work needed to do a task, the more lollygagging there is to be achieved. And boy, are we good at doing nothing, aside from that small percentage driven by this spark for achievement, adventure or fame (some overlap).

Boiled down, if the human has enough food, shelter and distractions, the drive to do more diminishes and in many cases goes negative. Negative? How is this possible you ask? Well let me explain, take a look at all these crowds that form every time there is an untoward event, followed by property destruction which includes burning, looting and general mayhem. This is negative drive, very few animals willfully destroy their habitat given they need to live in it and have a source of food from it.

So now hie thee over to this once marvel of achievement, the windy city named Chicago. Chicago means land of onions in the native language of the original indigenes, so we can infer that the place stank even before being settled by immigrants. Nonetheless, immigrants built a sleepy town on the shores of a lake into a great hub of progress, attracting thousands then millions to live there and work in the mills, factories, steel foundries, rail and ship builders and so on. Even Mrs. O’Leary was not able to burn it all down. (If you like rabbit holes – see here https://www.thoughtco.com/mrs-olearys-cow-great-chicago-fire-1774059 )

It may have been the “second city” compared to NY and the Empire State, but in terms of actual human achievement, production and prosperity, it is arguable which state took the lead in the development of this nation. So onwards to the present day.

Chicago is a husk of what it once was. Heavy industry, manufacturing and innovation are all but gone and the Gary steel mills are much reduced. It does continue as an agricultural hub seeing that heavy rail and ship/barge traffic are needed to move Midwest bulk commodities to market . To some degree, light industry is still present but not very stable. With the city and a good portion of the state being controlled by crooked politicians for at least 5 generations, this leads to an entire ecosystem that exists to support non-productive government officials on the takings from the productive sectors. Can we say “great society experiment”, children? Yes, I knew you could.

This then brings us to a Chicago, where 30 shootings and 4 deaths is a “normal” weekend, with special performance spikes when the weather is hot and there is a 3 day holiday. Note that daily reports are not even mentioned any more, just the week/weekend tally.

Not only is there human vermin, the product of those generations of fatherless .gov for daddy breeders, but apparently these same folks (unexpectedly) create the ideal environment for actual vermin, namely Rattus rattus (and you thought I lost my thread!).

https://res.cloudinary.com/dk-find-out/image/upload/q_80,w_1440,f_auto/50491001_kupidw.png

Now most of us would call Orkin, Truly Nolen or another appropriate critter management firm to take care of the problem private sector, but no, this is simply not done in politically correct Chicago (maybe the rats there just thrive on Coumadin , who knows) where Mayor Light (in head) Foot, ordered the capture of thousands of feral felines in the surrounding lands, to be released in the city proper as the solution (mind they have to be spayed/fixed first at taxpayer expense). Now yon citizens have to put up more tax, cat turds in their tiny back yards (just another tax, really) and feral cat fights every night. I am certain the rats are enjoying the spectacle along with other vermin of the streets.

Happy Sunday, one can always look forward to reading the Monday police blotter report.

Chicago will discover that it is easier for cats to kill birds than it is to kill rodents that are of equal or better size than the cats. If they want to kill large urban rats, they’d be better off turning loose rat terriers, Jack Russell terriers, and related breeds of dogs.

Calls for Fauci to resign

Im just waiting for Allyn to come back and throw in the race card, or call us all Trumpublicans or some other shit.

He will never admit Pres Trump was right…about ALL OF IT.

A Chinese virologist who fled the country for the United States has claimed that the government of Xi Jinping has been covering up the truth about the coronavirus pandemic and that she is gathering “solid evidence” about the real origins of Covid-19. “The virus did not originate in nature and did not emerge from the market in Wuhan,” Li-Meng Yan, who says she… Read more »

It is still the general consensus that this virus was naturally occurring  Not for a very long time, libtard Denial isnt just a river in Egypt My persoinal opinion? The CCP were using SARS- Covid as a prototype through gain of function research to weaponise it and increase its transmission to humans. It was an attenuated virus in testing stages,… Read more »

Fauci “I do not know have enough insight into the Communist Party in China to know the interactions between them and the scientists, sir” It takes ignorance or self-delusion to not know as fact their are interactions between China’s communist dictatorship, and its scientists What was it Allyn said, oh thats right “Does the virus have slanted eyes” I dont… Read more »

You mean that Biden opened a new investigation because of public outcry, after he shut down Trump’s investigation. The media has done a 180 on this, including the NY Times and the Washington Post. But when Trump said it, it was derided. And Biden seems hell-bent on undoing everything Trump did. Like giving sanction relief to Iran, giving up our… Read more »

Naturally occurring? You HAVE to be joking, Ive talked to a DOZEN doctors and NONE of them have ever seen a virus do this shit. Even SARS burned out fast, this thing jumps species, mutates rapidly, shares a massive affinity with humans, doesnt like bats, they CANT FIND the animal that supposedly started this, it isnt ‘pangolins; since there arent… Read more »

Speaking of China’s objective of weaponising the Coronavirus and unleashing it upon the globe, Dr Yan said that the CCP wants to ‘damage enemy society and the economy’. The whistleblower pointed out that China has begun ‘celebrations’ as the economies of several countries have crashed while they have recovered and are doing well. Elaborating on the reasons why China allegedly… Read more »

Nice of you to turn that around DJ, But it doesn’t change the facts that when Trump said it, it was derided. And now under Biden, it’s being considered again. The only difference is that the prejudice against Trump overshadowed the truth. And by the way, how do you know that the Trump investigation was faulty? Do you have some… Read more »

You are so full of it. First of all, Trump called it the Chinese flu because it came from China. Even the Chinese agree on that. All the attacks that I’ve seen on video of Asians have been by blacks and antifa. You’re blaming that on Trump? How about attacks on Jews, which have been spiralling lately? LA, London, NY,… Read more »

https://news.yahoo.com/jill-biden-garbage-dissertation-explained-155913150.html Biden’s style is atrocious, her research is comical, her reasoning is muddled, and as one finishes the final vacuous line of this student-newspaper-style exercise (“A student retention plan requires diligence and effort — but most of all, leadership”), it is impossible not to be reminded that the University of Delaware, which granted Mrs. Biden an Ed.D. in 2007, is… Read more »

You sneer at my sources and then link NPR

Incidentally..when was there ever such a thing as the American language’? You lot got that from Britain, seeing as you took in close to 70,000 convicts before 1775.

I find it hilarious that you cling to “the science says its natural”: with the same fervour that you cling to the new totally discredited “Russia Russia Russia” garbage.
