Gee, who could have imagined that something like this would have happened -- except maybe for anyone with more than 8 working brain cells!!!! Of course, that is at least 7 working brain cells more than anyone in the city government of San Fornication currently has or they would never have done something this stupid in the first place!!!

A couple years ago, one of my customers -- a small, rural hotel, told me a story about one of their soon-to-be-former employees and her boyfriend running a meth lab out of one of their hotel rooms. The health inspectors and the police shut down about 8 or 10 adjoining rooms. They had to hire a remediation expert, not to DO the work, but to advise what work needed to be done to decontaiminate the affected area. If my feeble memory is correct, that tab was in excess of $10,000 (in a rural midwestern state). I forget what the clean up cost was, but I'd expect it would be multiples of that number. Who knows what this would cost in San Francisco.

I thought laws against meth labs were racist. Breaking Badly. So that’s what they’re teaching in high school now. In the autonomous zone. Where life has bad teeth.

This is going to severely impact the real estate value of this contaminated hotel. But it’s all part of Newsome’s plan to crash the system to institute fundamental transformation of his radical left wing socialist agenda.

This is the type of stuff that gets houses condemned because of all the dangerous chemicals. These hotel owners better make sure they've got their donations to the local politicians up to date, or they might find their hotel sitting vacant for the next 30 years or torn down as a public health hazard.

To me, some photos are necessary to see just what this 'Meth Lab' was. "METH LAB!" brings up a mental image of laboratory equipment, vats, stirrers, mixers, distilling equipment, precision scales, all kinds of stuff. In reality, a couple of years ago in my neck of the woods, the local paper headline read "The cops found a METH LAB!"..... it turned out to be some junk in a 2-liter soft-drink bottle. Not quite what a person would imagine when the paper screams "METH LAB!"

Notice they left the hotel owner's name out ? People who welcomed the city's money to take these people in. How many were there because they were homeless with a virus ? Shouldn't they have monitored the sick people more often?

TikTok, an app known for quirky, short videos, is facing political heat because of its ties to China. US President Donald Trump has ramped up his campaign against the short-form video app. On Friday, the president was reportedly considering an order that would force TikTok's Chinese parent company to divest its US operations. Microsoft is reportedly interested in buying the app, according to The New York Times. (Microsoft declined to comment.) Hours after those reports, Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One that he'd prefer to ban the app, an idea his administration floated earlier this month. "We're banning them from the United States," the president said

Federal agents deployed by President Donald Trump to tamp down the unrest have arrested dozens during nightly demonstrations against racial injustice that often turn violent. Democratic leaders in Oregon say federal intervention has worsened the two-month crisis, and the state attorney general sued to allege that some people had been whisked off the streets in unmarked vehicles.

Andrew Cuomo is begging wealthy New Yorkers to return to the city to save it from economic ruin while fighting off calls from other lawmakers to raise their taxes, a move he fears could permanently drive the top 1 percent out of the city. Thousands of New York City residents fled Manhattan and Brooklyn earlier this year when the city was the COVID-19 epicenter of the world. Many flocked to their second homes in the Hamptons or upstate, while others rented or bought new properties, abandoning their expensive city apartments.Now, six months on with no end to the national nightmare in sight, many are laying down permanent roots.
