New York's bedbug infestation is getting worse, with almost 10,000 complaints to the city last year - one-third higher than the year before."There are lots and lots of people who are having a devastating experience with bedbugs," said Renee Corea, who helped start the coalition New York vs. Bed Bugs after being bitten. "We are already regarded as the most highly infested city in the United States."
New Yorkers called 311 with 9,213 bedbug complaints in the last fiscal year, up 33.7% from the year before, according to records that Corea's group obtained through a Freedom of Information request.
That probably understates the problem, Corea said, because uncounted numbers of New Yorkers call exterminators instead of phoning 311.Other spikes appeared in the northern and eastern Bronx, in midtown Manhattan, in the Rockaways and a section of eastern Queens, and on the North Shore of Staten Island.
Nature, not man's "prejudice", has made peoples unequal. And nature tends to favor evolutionary upwardly mobility. Thus the only way for man to engineer "equality" is to do so downwardly.
In other words you can't make everybody equally intelligent, but you can work to make them equally ignorant.
You can't make everybody equally happy but you can sure make everyone equally miserable.
You can't elevate the third world to Western standards of civilization, but you can push Western civilization down to third world levels by simply bringing the third world here....bedbugs and all.
