San Francisco's homelessness department is seeking $20 million in additional funding to extend an encampment program that already funds tents that cost over $60,000 a year. This week, officials from San Francisco's Department of Homelessness and Supportive Housing went before the the Board of Supervisors' Budget and Appropriations Committee and requested $20 million over the next two years to keep six 'Safe Sleeping Village' tent encampments running. The city's six encampment sites provide tents for the homeless as well as three meals a day, around-the-clock security and bathrooms and showers,

I’d be requesting $40 mil. Take care of Inflation for the cost of materials, and get some 2-br tents. Make it homey. Homeless like nice things, too.

"Homeless Department". I remember in the 1990s, we were part of the Welfare-to-Work, but we were from the private sector. I remember spending time in the City and County Offices, where all the City and County workers would stare daggers at us. Every time we put some one to work, it was one less person that needed 'help.' The current Homeless Industrial Government Complex just loves 'helping' people to remain homeless.

"Aren't we wonderful people" is the motto of San Francisco. truthful answer...NO. You expand and create more poverty by your actions and waste the resources of a once beautiful city.

Remember when the city was giving homeless people shopping carts, or not prosecuting shopping cart theft? Same example of only perpetuating the problem, not solving it. Do they also register them to vote and drive them to the polls? Oh wait, they have ballot harvesters now. I'll never visit SFO again.

San Francisco voters have the local government they've voted for. They are OK with what's happened to the city. Too bad. San Fran used to be such a beautiful city. It's going down and nothing will slow it down, much less turn it around, until this creeping seediness spreads into the neighborhoods of the truly wealthy.

$60K is chump change to the Pelosis and their ilk who just want to keep the homeless from camping in their gardens, and to hail with everyone else.

I remember when they were called vagrants and were arrested and the ones who were mentally ill were placed in mental institutions that are now closed by Democrats because everyone “deserves to live in a free society” no matter how dangerous they are. Democrat logic, an oxymoron.

Providing tents for people to sleep in is compassionate? How about helping them beat their addictions so they can be self-sufficient? Or providing them with mental health treatments to help them get well? That's compassion, not this. Leftism isn't compassionate, it compounds the problems.

I'll offer to provide tents for only $20K each, as many as they want. Since I can buy them new for a couple of Benjamins, at worst, and more likely under $100 each, this could be a nice profit, about 10,000 percent . SCAM. SCAM. SCAM. as usual for Dems.

San Francisco, which is known to be a foreign country to many Californians, does strange things. We used to love to visit there for a fancy weekend at the Clift, equally fancy dinner at l’Etoile, lunch at the Tadich Grill, a jaunt to Sausalito, Saks Fifth Avenue… and then, blessedly, home… Some things are best remembered without any attempt to recreate them.

Democrats and the fake news media are clearly in a panic over the push to audit the results of the 2020 election.

Donald Trump’s latest rally was another greatest hits of media attacks, 2020 election falsehoods and long-held and more recent grievances, and while it drew a large in-person crowd in Wellington, Ohio, it did’t get an audience on the three major cable news networks.The reason: They didn’t carry it.

John Langley, who created the widely influential reality series Cops, has died at age 78.The producer died Saturday from an apparent heart attack while in Baja, Mexico, as he competed at the Coast to Coast Ensenada–San Felipe 250 off-road race. Although Cops remained a popular series for decades, it was pulled off the air in 2020 amid concerns about its pro-police viewpoint after former Minneapolis Police Department officer Derek Chauvin murdered George Floyd. (Photo) Langley came up with the idea for Cops with Malcolm Barbour in the 1980s, but it wasn't until the aftermath of a 1988 Writers Guild strike that he was able to get it on the air.

Members of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops are trying to clarify their position and deal with the confusion caused by their announcement last week that they would create a teaching document on the Holy Eucharist or the meaning of Communion. The statement caused many to speculate that the church was looking to deny President Joe Biden and other pro-abortion Catholic politicians from receiving Communion. The speculation was misplaced, said the bishops.“There will be no national policy on withholding Communion from politicians,” the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said in a Q&A document dated June 21.

A Rorschach test for the American people, many view it as little more than an expensive racket to excoriate white people.Whatever your thoughts, it’s certainly divisive.The country is now more divided than at any point in recent history; further division is the last thing America needs. Unity is what is required. Not some sort of Marianne Williamson-inspired, flowers in our hair unity, but a commonsense sort. Whether our country can recover political unity will depend on the United States remaining a safe, functioning, sovereign nation. That seems like a goal worth rallying around.

As the Marxist revolution oozes forward, I occasionally wonder what will happen to the useful idiots when the commies seize absolute power in this once great Republic. I believe that most AT readers are familiar with the term, but for those who need a brief refresher, a useful idiot, as defined by Wikipedia, "is a derogatory term for a person perceived as propagandizing for a cause without fully comprehending the cause's goals, and who is cynically used by the cause's leaders." In my opinion, this definition can be applied to a majority of the young, brainwashed radicals who have no idea about the true history of Marxism
