This tragedy would never have happened if not socialism. Why did Rachel Carsen hate birds?

If only there were some kind of deadly persistent pesticide you could spray on everybody willy-nilly (except rich white people) to prevent malaria. Alas, DDT is not only illegal (where ever rich white people are found) but it proved to be persistent, to build up in inviduals and the food chain, and to be fatal to innumerable organisms besides insects. Besides, even as it triumphed in the war against malaria (1942-1945) in the Pacific Theatre of Operations, it was losing its power to kill insects due to a little chink in its armor called "evolution".

And so it is still possible to spray brown people with DDT in Africa (provided they aren't close to white people) but penguins die in London because they have no natural immunity to a TROPICAL DISEASE. Envrio-Socialism is clearly perverse and unnatural, like Rush Limbaugh's diet of Dominican teen pool boys.

For anyone in or around St. Louis, check out the Penguin & Puffin Coast at the St. Louis zoo, which has no admission fee. But, if you shell out a few bones, you can visit the penguins up close and personal style.
