Daytrip sent in this link to ZH, and it typifies what we’ll probably see up and down the coast and rich people battle it out with everyone else who is left. The wackos will be the most obvious on the front lines in the beginning, but eventually there could be a real revolution by regular people who are sick of the divide. The comment section is as important as the actual advertisement:
P.S. Government and law enforcement won’t be getting in front of this – there will need to be some violent clashes before any attention is put on this topic.
Why’s everyone so quiet?
I mean, why, when an absolute poster boy city for the democrat mind-set, with NO opposition to be mindful of, manifests itself as a low security mental hospital, complete with human excrement literally wallpapering the place, is nobody from that party questioning its long-term viability?
Or is this just an extension of the mindset? “Well, we have to comport ourselves to the fact that slipping on sh*t in front of Barnes & Nobles is an integral part of the human condition. In fact, it’s a sign of civic health. It’s a reminder that fascism is dying in our great city! Sign the petition to remove the suicide nets off the Golden State Bridge! Suicide nets are an existential micro-aggression! Eff Trump!!”
San Francisco Compared to Some of the Dirtiest Slums in the World:
Strobe lights beam create dreams
Feces dust spores spread Hepatitis C
on a warm San Franciscan night
I wasn’t born there
But I had some die there
There’s no place… left to go…
You know how Maiden Lane got its name, right?
Everything old is new again.
Good post! Last time I was in San Fran I witnessed firsthand about 50 used needles laying on concrete next to a trash can. Had never seen anything like that in my life.
San Diego better take notice as our downtown area has been getting worse and we do not want this taking over here.
It may be too late for San Diego. A few months ago my husband and I were at Horton Plaza. We used to eat at the Panda Inn and they up and closed on us. As we turned around to take the escalator back down, we passed a large, neat pile of human feces. Horton Plaza is going down, fast! Lots of other eateries closed. Shops closed.
But, this homeless problem seems to be all over. We just got back from Honolulu, HI and we saw homeless people all over the place. Tents, shopping carts full of belongings, etc. I guess if one is going to be homeless, might as well be in a temperate paradise.
But, there’s also “working” homeless. Which are people that actually have jobs, but can’t afford to rent/buy any actual housing. So, they live in their cars/tents out on the streets and still work their day jobs!
Something seems out of whack!
Horton Plaza is being ‘re-purposed’ – they want to turn it into office space (?).
You’re right Eddie89 though, there are two segments here that need to be addressed separately.
The homeless with mental illness need special help. You can’t just give them a job or place to live and walk away.
But those who are employed and functioning fine and just can’t afford a home could be addressed easier – they just need cheaper housing options.
The weather is so temperate here that tent cities should be a natural alternative.
Those who cannot afford a home and have to live in a dang tent on the street should not be living in a coastal overpriced area in the first place and move to an area they can afford which is pretty much 90% of the rest of the US.
You can buy a new home in the midwest and down south for a little over $100k. Then you could live in a actual house and not on the dang street. Utilities are also drastically cheaper with no tiered rates.
Wow Eddie, that is absolutely gross! I sure hope they are washing those sidewalks and streets often with bleach! Nasty!!! If this type of problem ever creeps into our suburban areas I will most def be hitting you up Jim to get the hell out of here lol.

A worse threat than the homeless would be armed insurgents coming over the border in groups of hundreds or thousands. Can the Border Patrol handle that? What if they are trained guerrillas with substantial weaponry? We are a little too close!
Now that would be scary!
Good thing we have a strong military presence located right here.
