Well, let’s see: Israel continues trying to bring Hamas under heel, Ukraine is still battling for its very existence against Russia, Pakistan and Iran are trading missile attacks, China remains a malevolent force in the world, fentanyl and other synthetic drugs are killing Americans at an increasing rate, the leading Presidential candidates from both parties are foolish, doddering, corrupt old coots, and we’re now $34 trillion in debt and have no way of turning that back around. So what is on the agenda of my (and our host’s) United States Representative, Ted Lieu (D – Publicity)? Behold:
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

What a waste of a Congressional seat. Rep. Lieu has now represented me for over eighteen years, first in the California Assembly, then in the California Senate, and now in the United States House of Representatives. He is a showhorse, not a workhorse, and his entire political career has been about small-bore initiatives designed to win over some important Democrat interest group so he can continue his climb up the political ladder. He’s absolutely the sort of clown who gives ingratiatingly ambitious politicians such a bad name.
