Reactionary Government

The spotted lanternfly was first noticed years ago. New York State was trying to watch out for it since 2017. Staten Island had its first confirmed case in August 2020. All agencies and jurisdictions were made aware.

Our amazing government just let you know to be on the lookout for egg masses last week?

Maybe stink bugs won’t ever reach here either — oh wait, never mind.

Always the reactionary government you enjoyed, always what you shall have.
