Thought San Francisco’s Quality Of Life
Couldn’t Get Worse? Think Again

Original Article

San Francisco garnered national headlines with the election of its new district attorney, a progressive, which means there will be zero progress made in the homelessness crisis, and little if any made toward reducing crime in the city and county. Chesa Boudin, a one-time deputy public defender who has never tried a case, was elected in a close race, and will assume office in January. Before he had a chance to decide if the new drapes in his office were going to be socialist red or blue state blue, Boudin announced that he would not prosecute quality-of-life crimes such as “public camping, offering or soliciting sex,

Well, it's what their American and non-American voters want. Will be fun to watch. I don't think tourism is important to the left any way. Although there will be people just driving thru SF just to see the spectacle. Social justice in action!.

With the strict gun control laws in California (and other places - e.g. New York), normal people won't even be able to protect themselves - which is the goal of those in power. Which is too bad, because with a neutered police force and the state and local governments encouraging and legalizing illegal activity, normal people are going to have to protect themselves.

The tales of the decline of San Francisco are not fiction, they're reality. To elect someone so anti-law enforcement as Boudin to the role of DA is just shocking. Occasionally, the "reporters" of the local papers go out and do in-depth articles about how the various communities have been effected by the thousands of homeless and drug addicts and alcoholics who inhabit the city. It's one thing for the tech/finance/professionals rich, but the effects on what's left of the middle class are severe.In addition to the absolute filth of much of the city, in many non-affluent areas, residents can't go out of their apartments in daylight without confronting often aggressive out of control people. One thing I would like to know, is how do the police keep the homeless out of certain neighborhoods (e. g Nancy Pelosi's) while allowing the homeless to live on the sidewalks and in alleyways in other neighborhoods? And remember SF is a very small city.

Ok, pet peeve number 324. Whats with these writers telling me to think again? It isn't cute or clever, its just obnoxious. Its right up here with saying "period" after some proclamation, as if the discussion is over. What? Does everyone want to start arguing like Jack Klugman or Telly Savalas again? That's one part of the 50's I don't want to bring back.

I hope things get much, much worse in SanFranStinkHo. The only way people will ask for change is after experiencing the reality of their desired outcome. The sooner they sink into chaos, the sooner there is a possibility of coming back. But, if they don't come back......I don't actually care.

Number 7 - Nancy Pelosi lives in a gated community, very exclusive and far removed from areas the homeless frequent. She will never be touched by what is happening to the “little people” in her city. When relatives or friends from out of town visit we have always recommended - no! Strongly talked them out of! - any visits to “The City” (as locals call it) but instead head to Monterey and Pacific Grove. Both are lovely seaside towns that up until the last year or so were clean and safe. Homeless have just started to move in though and their welcoming atmosphere is beginning to change. The area DOES value their tourists so it will be interesting to see what the towns do. LE in other nice areas of the Bay Area (think Atherton, Menlo Park, Saratoga, Los Gatos, etc) simply pick up the homeless and drop them off in less advantaged towns. A solution that is working for now ... until it doesn’t. Does anyone around here not see the future?

I have lived in SF for 40 years now. I became a conservative after seeing how nasty and corrupt the people who run this city are, not long after arriving here. My wife and I have friends who don't speak to us anymore, it used to be crazy but civil- not now. The charm that drew me here four decades ago is nearly all gone. Two liberals I used to get along with at work, both lost their cars last week, one stolen, the other totaled by a hit and run. No comments from either because they know the thief and the hit and run driver will face no serious consequences.

The new district attorney says that soliciting sex is a "quality of life" issue. In the world were I grew up I learned that sex outside of marriage was always wrong and impeded you quality of life here and hereafter. The new DA probably never read the book. The people who HAVE read the book will benefit from it.

Second Lt. Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, an aviation officer in the Saudi Air Force, opened fire at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Fla., on Friday, killing four people and wounding many others. In doing so, he showed yet again that the prevailing politically correct obfuscation and denial regarding the jihad threat is not only wrong, it’s dangerous. If we had a realistic approach to the jihad threat, Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani’s victims would be alive today. Before he embarked upon his killing spree, someone who appeared to be Alshamrani ranted on Twitter about the evils of America. First, he rejected the George W. Bush explanation for jihad terrorism,

Many Americans remain nonplussed over revelations in the House Intelligence Committee’s Impeachment Inquiry Report that its chairman, Adam Schiff, not only secretly subpoenaed telephone records from President Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, but also obtained responses that detailed dates and lengths of phone calls to Trump attorney Jay Sekulow, ranking committee member Devin Nunes, and Hill reporter John Solomon. That Schiff self-disclosed this action as a rightful part of his committee’s information gathering is equally stunning. Every bit as bad, it appears that national telephone carriers AT&T and Verizon, who so tout their corporate concerns about subscriber privacy, responded to such obviously politicized demands without a whimper.

President Trump arrived in London on Dec. 2 for the 70th anniversary summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). He was also right on time for Britain’s high-stakes general election. The vote that will decide the future of Brexit — and in a real sense the futures of both the UK and the EU — takes place in just a few days, on Thursday. This confluence of events posed a tricky issue for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Well before Trump’s arrival, much was made over the president’s intentions: Would he wade into domestic, UK politics as he rather gleefully did during his state visit over the summer?
Portland considers “mandatory rest spaces”

Portland, Oregon, like many cities on the left coast, is struggling with a growing homelessness crisis. But what can they do about it? One idea that’s now being floated is to change the building codes so that all new structures (including private property, not just government buildings) include spaces for people to “rest” and “feel welcome and safe.” This understandably has prospective property owners concerned, since the wording is all quite vague and suggests that they will be forced to allow the homeless to camp in and around their buildings.

On December 7, 1941, my grandmother’s father, like so many other Navy men stationed at Pearl Harbor, assumed all the gunfire down at the base was a drill. It was a Sunday, and he was sleeping in on a day off from his duties as an officer aboard the USS Nevada. His daughter told him around 7:30 a.m. that the family had not received their newspaper. She asked if she could borrow the one next door to read the funny pages. Worried that she might actually steal a neighbor’s newspaper, he rolled out of bed to keep an eye on her. He went to the kitchen and started making coffee.

Pundits have a ready explanation when one of their favorites loses or ends a campaign: The voters just didn't get to know the candidate the way media do. He or she was too wonky, or eager to please, or insular, or revealing, or uncertain for the masses. The electoral process made it impossible for him or her to connect with voters. The classic example is Hillary Clinton, who has reintroduced herself to the public umpteen times over the decades.
