They Still Don’t Get It

“Unacceptable. Absolutely unacceptable,” said Supervisor Hillary Ronen.

“We’re losing tourists. We’re losing conventions in San Francisco. All of this is happening because we aren’t addressing the root cause, which is we need more temporary beds for street homelessness.”

Then there is this insightful ditty from the same individual —

“We’re not going to make a huge dent in this problem unless we deal with some underlying major social problems and issues,” she said.

“There’s a human tragedy happening in San Francisco.”

The Liberal Mind must have been guaranteed there would be not maths for their progressive (er, regressive) views. This is a simple matter of supply and demand.

  • You provide free housing, you get more people who want the free housing. Lacking that they sleep in the streets. Providing MORE just increases the problem.
  • Provide free needles, you get more people who want free needles. And of course not conscious of their own self worth they don’t consider others and dump their trash on the streets.
  • Ham string the police from taking the necessary steps to get the people off the streets and they stay on the streets.
  • Make your town look like a dump an yes, people will not wish to visit.
  • Raise the taxes to provide all the services and soon the productive people move out and you lose all around in not having the revenue to run the city.

The real tragedy happening in San Fran is that the city leaders don’t have the guts to do what is necessary to clean up the situation. Their ‘compassion’ is killing the city.

    If this is a Progs idea of ‘progress’ they need to consult a dictionary.

    Wait. Can’t we just be nice and solve all the world’s problems?
    Can’t we?
    With other people’s money. Of course!

    In San Francisco (and most liberal meccas), there is no effort to solve underlying problems. Rather than working to get people off drugs, the emphasis is on needle exchanges and safe places to “shoot up.”

    It’s almost that progressive cities are in competition to attract the homeless by seeing who can offer more.

    drdog09 – Their ‘compassion’ is killing the city.

    You can say the same thing about our country. Accept the world’s uneducated and unskilled. Because of diversity, don’t encourage them to conform. In fact, the left praises them for their unwillingness to conform.

    I’ve in California almost all my life, and it isn’t “compassion” that is killing this (alleged) State, it is corruption, and lust for power.

    The Left OWNS this State, and they maintain that ownership by sucking BILLIONS from the dwindling population of tax payers and funneling that money into “programs”. The “programs” become a river of money flowing past the greedy fingers of those politicians. The amount that actually reaches those who are supposed to benefit is but a fraction.

    AND, if they ever addressed the root causes and made a difference, then the money for the “programs” would dry up. They NEED the problems so they can suck more money.

    Dependency…that is the goal!

    Biden’s biggest gaff yet? He claims to have consoled the Parksiders as VP (even though he was out of office two years,

    Imagine a gaffe-a-thon between Biden and Pope Francis.

    within a fairly short while, several guards and other personnel from that jail facility are going to have “accidents” too. No loose ends…that’s the Clinton mantra.

    JimNorCal #12 –

    I’ve known one person who committed suicide – my former dentist. He was the last person you’d suspect to commit suicide – easy going, friendly, active in my parish and the local Catholic school.

    For some reason dentists have a higher than the average suicide. The suicide rate among dentists is 1.67 times that of the average American. Perhaps Epstein went to dental school for a semester or two.

    Now the lawyers need lawyers…..

    The New York Times reported Sunday that lawyers Jeffrey Schantz and Darren Indyke recently hired criminal defense attorneys to represent them. According to the Times, the pair were “involved with some of his trusts and other entities in New York and in the Virgin Islands.” Court documents show Epstein’s vast fortune is valued at least $559 million.

    Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell on Saturday morning at the Metropolitan Correctional Center. Law enforcement received a telephone call at 6:39 a.m. local time that the hedge fund manager was suffering from cardiac arrest. He was later pronounced dead at NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital in what is believed to have been due to an apparent suicide.

    Epstein was facing charges of sex trafficking that stemmed from activities over a period of three years in the early 2000s. He served a 13-month prison sentence in Florida in 2008 after he was charged with similar offenses, and was forced to register as a sex offender. His attorneys unsuccessfully lobbied for bail and house arrest on the new charges, but a federal New York judge declared him a flight risk and a danger to the community.
