San Francisco, Open Air Toilet

Tell me that this does not brighten up your day. Unless you happen to live in San Francisco, home of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, it certainly will.

You recall the cries of faux outrage when Donald Trump said that certain nations were shithole countries. Well, guess what, America now has its very own shithole city. There may be others, but San Francisco has become an open air toilet.

People have overcome all laws of human hygiene. I hope this makes San Franciscans feel liberated.

Apparently, the arc of justice has just punished the city for its virtue preening and posturing. San Francisco is probably more “woke” even than New York. It has opened its arms to migrants around the world. It has offered sanctuary to the poor, the destitute and the downtrodden. Not so much because it is going to help these people, as in, getting them jobs, but because it makes all San Franciscans, especially those who have more money than anyone has a right to have, feel virtuous.

Anyway, high tech gazillionaires have destroyed the housing market… so more and more San Franciscans are now living on the streets. And they have turned the streets of San Francisco into shitholes. If you are going to San Francisco, the old song said, make sure to wear a flower in your hair. Now you know why: to mask the stench.

The San Francisco Gate has the story, or, should I say, the poop:

Between 2011 and 2018, San Francisco experienced a massive increase in reported incidents of human feces found on public streets.

In 2011, just over 5,500 reports were logged by the San Francisco Department of Public Works; in 2018, the number increased to more than 28,000.

Notably, this is a chart of only documented reports — the actual amount of feces on San Francisco's streets is likely even higher than these statistics suggest.

"I will say there is more feces on the sidewalks than I've ever seen growing up here," San Francisco Mayor London Breed told NBC in a 2018 interview. "That is a huge problem, and we are not just talking about from dogs — we're talking about from humans."

It is not new. But it has been getting worse. Lucky that San Francisco has a new “woke” mayor in London Breed. She is working hard to clean it all up. Oops, but the problem has gotten a lot worse under her watch. Hmmm.

San Francisco has struggled with a feces problem for years. The city even employs a "Poop Patrol" that attempts to keep the streets clean and focuses on the Tenderloin neighborhood.

But the problem is bigger than just keeping the streets clean — the issue appears to be related to the city's struggle to accommodate its homeless population amid skyrocketing rent prices and a decreasing supply of affordable housing.

2017 survey of San Francisco's homeless population counted nearly 7,500 people living on the street. That population faces limited public resources, and public bathrooms are no exception.

Whether the Poop Patrol is able to reverse the trend on San Francisco's streets remains to be seen, but there's an indication that the crew is a bandage on a problem much bigger than dirty streets.

No shit, Sherlock.

I recommend that the city and he state solve the problem of “limited public resources” by confiscating the wealth of all the “woke” tech titans. They all believe in leftist schemes, so why shouldn’t they pay for them.

I'm happy the homeless have a place to go with a reasonably benign climate and free needles. I will also be happy when they accept, joyfully, with open arms and non-appropriative leis (strings of colorful TANF cards?), thousands of undocumented refugees who will benefit the economy and provide vibrant, diverse communities.

My neck of the woods just has far too many deplorable, irredeemable, bitter clingers. The homeless and refugees would be constantly triggered and oppressed if they moved near me.

I'm cheering for the bums. I support the efforts to feed the bums because it insures x2 poop on the streets. Whatever is bad for San Francisco is good for America.

True story. 9 years ago I took the day off and waited in line to see Dylan at the Warfield. We're there, wife and I, sitting in folding chairs, having a beer, long line, and the bums are swarming everywhere. One particularly insolent bum walked up to the mostly full trash can, looks at all of us, and dumps in out on the ground, sifts through a bit, and then sits down on a bench next to the giant mess he made. It was magnificent. He stood in front of an entire line of San Francisco's citizens and showed them exactly what he thought of them. And they never said a word. I could tell by the look on his face that he was baiting them. I thought he was a city treasure. He was exactly what those people deserved. I hope he drops a deuce on the hood of their new Prius.

Needless to say, he walked off and left the mess, and the cowards just smoked pot and bitched about George Bush. I tried to light a cigar at one point and nearly started a riot.

Dylan was dreadful, and you can't have a cigar anyplace, even outside, except among the bums--so add that to the list of their virtues.

The plague cannot come fast enough to that shitbog. Let the bums have it.
