He came, he saw, he offered nothing specific.In his first high-profile visit to San Francisco as secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Ben Carson paid a quick visit to a public housing project in Potrero Hill, dodged an invitation to meet with the mayor, and left — all in the space of about an hour.Carson came a week after the Trump administration said it was exploring ways of addressing California’s homelessness crisis, including spurring more housing development. His purpose in visiting the housing project was to “listen” and gather facts, Carson said.The secretary showed up at 11 a.m. in an SUV, rolled quickly past

Ben Carson is not a grandstander. He would be collecting facts, would have no interest in meeting with Newsom. There is no way that that would have been a good use of his limited time.

By ‘help’ they mean money and it should not be given unless there is a plan, a strategy and plenty of oversight. There is no reason to dump taxpayer money into their slush fund. They obviously cannot manage their city.

For decades San Francisco has poured ever more money into resources for the homeless. And always, more homeless arrive, and overwhelm the system. Additionally, the (literally) rabid Leftists that run the city have so restricted and taxed construction (and commerce) that building new housing (other than high rise structures filled with breathtakingly expensive condominiums) is virtually impossible. The streets and many neighborhoods have become cesspools, filthy, with human excrement and used needles. The (mostly tech employed) rich stay in their fancy high rise prisons, venturing out other than at rush hour, means likely being accosted by aggressive homeless and car break-ins are a constant. And Ben Carson is expected to give our federal tax dollars to this Leftist created Hell? Why? What would be accomplished? Please, NO!.

The homeless problem is not a housing issue. Until a person’s mental, physical, and work ethic issues are addressed, you can give them a mansion and they will have it destroyed like their tent cities.

San Francisco political officials are now in power and were in power when the homeless issue grew to its current out-of-control status. They have badly mismanaged their responsibilities and authorities. This article appears to absolve San Francisco political officials from responsibility and accountability for the mess THEY created and attempts to saddle HUD with fixing the situation. Are San Francisco political officials willing and able to cede their responsibilities and authorities (including decision-making powers) to HUD or are they just looking for money squander on yet more policies that have shown to have failed in the past? If money is the answer, get it from the taxpayers of San Francisco, NOT from federal taxpayers!

Secretary Carson is a problem solver. All of us have said at some time or another, "You don't need a brain surgeon". Well, this time, we have a brain surgeon, and it sounds like he came, he saw and he zeroed right in several causes of homelessness in the city of San Francisco. Carson suggested that both over regulation and opposition to housing have contributed to the increases in homelessness. He further said that, "The places that have the most regulation also have the highest prices and the most homelessness. Therefore, it would only seem logical to attack those things that seem to be driving the crisis." Obviously, he knows you cannot solve a problem until you are aware of its causes: over-regulation, opposition to new housing and high prices. Sounds like a person who wants to solve the problem if you'd work with him.

There is more than a housing problem - but that certainly is on the edge of the ring - a one bedroom condo in SF - 500 sq. ft. is $600,000 right now. Don't even get me on a rant about the horrors of 'rent control', Section 8 housing & 'affordable' housing - that all results in disasters & 'un-intended' consequences. Mostly alcoholism and other drug abuse along with untreated mental illness are the big problems. The biggest problem is that these lazy, virtue signalling hypocrites are Leftists who think they know everything - and have conned the voters into thinking that utopia will bloom from Leftism's half-baked ideas. So in their misguided compassion (and perhaps a hidden desire to destroy the USA) the city officials refuse to round up the homeless drunks and put them in jail to dry out. They refuse to arrest the desperately vexed mentally ill and take them to a mental facility. They refuse to arrest & fine those people who defecate on the street, thus putting the law abiding citizens at risk for horrid diseases. In the past, even spitting on a public street was against the law for very sound public health reasons. They reuse to arrest the illegal aliens who are often homeless too, alcoholics or criminals. When complacent people are 'pushed' consistently by outside forces (like the city government) they will often do something on their own to fix their situations. They will move. They may really get a job. They may go back to where ever they came from. They will think twice before pooping on the street. Etc.

SF has the nerve to ask us, the tax payers to help them. These loud-mouthed socialists who claim to know it all and have plunged ahead with their unworkable policies now expect us to come to the rescue. And all this while calling Trump names and saying how evil and corrupt he is. This shows you how stupid and wrong-headed the Left is. I’m sure Ben Carson took one look at SF, shrugged his shoulders and said, “You did this! What the eff do you want me to do!” Then he was gone.

Let me add this. SF is a sanctuary city in a sanctuary state, in defiance of Federal law. The state has a big surplus as well and it’s the governor's city. They have nerve asking for our aid! There’s all that wealth sitting out there in that area. Why don’t they help? The Left is so full of compassion, aren’t they?

Richard Jewell saved countless lives at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Ga. Working security, the man found a backpack with three pipe bombs in it. He alerted police and helped to evacuate the area. Though his actions were nothing short of heroic, Jewell was then at the center of a media firestorm. With outlets reporting incomplete and false information, Jewell was painted as a prime suspect. It didn’t help either that federal agencies went along with this narrative and
