I predict a lot of war brides and demands for citizenship and voting rights for them.

It will target so-called “'Rat reservoirs,” which are areas where Democrat populations survive and thrive, such as public housing, welfare offices and government offices.

One City Council member described the 'Rat problem in as “an epidemic.”

"They take in more in government resources than they pay in taxes so we pander to them and encourage them while finding others to tax the hell out of."

I live in a suburb outside of Buffalo. Three of four years back Buffalo implemented serious rat control activities; mostly trash cans that were rat proof. This drove the rat population out of the city and into the suburbs.

As long as they aren’t deep fried with transfats and salt eat them. And wash it down with a 15oz soda.
