If you’ve been living anywhere but under a rock recently, you know that the United States has a whole slew of problems on its hands. And yet, it seems the only thing California Democrats and Representatives Adam Schiff and Ted Lieu are worried about is saving rats.
And no, I’m not talking about people who snitch on others’ bad behavior. I mean literal, beady-eyed rodents.
To prove my point, the duo introduced a new bill on Wednesday aimed at ensuring a more humane treatment of rats. Namely, the bill seeks to prohibit glue traps from being used to get rid of these creatures.
Aptly named the Glu Trap Prohibition Act, if passed, it would ban the use of glue traps for rodents nationwide.
Glue traps are among the cruelest ways to eliminate rodents. They're inhumane and can be dangerous to humans and their pets.
Pleased to introduce a bill today to place a national ban on glue traps. Learn more: https://t.co/UtfDpcL9DO

According to Lieu and Schiff, these kinds of traps are unnecessarily inhumane, as they catch rats or a multitude of other pesky critters in an extremely sticky substance. The creature eventually dies from starvation, dehydration, etc.; for the all too abundant and disease-carrying rat, it’s a fitting end.
But Schiff and Lieu, and, of course, PETA, the Humane Society Legislative Fund, and the Humane Society of the United States don’t see it that way.
So, they want to ban glue traps, which also happen to usually be the least expensive way to rid one’s home or property of rats. And thanks to Biden’s outrageous inflation, we all know how important saving a few bucks is.
Meanwhile, there is a border invasion going on, crime rates are skyrocketing, the Middle East is in crisis, human trafficking, drug overdoses, and inflation are rising every day, and don’t even get me started on how broken our education system is or how divided we are as a nation.
Instead of focusing the nation’s money or time on those larger-than-life issues, these two dingbats are worried about rats…
Seems about right for Democrats, huh?
