A large medical convention that has been coming to San Francisco since the 1980s is looking for a new host city because of the dirty streets and the homeless issue plaguing the area, according to San Francisco Travel, the city's convention and visitors bureau, reports KRON TV.
A friend of mine is the general manager of one of the largest hotels in San Francisco. He tells me that the number one complaint from hotel guests is the homeless situation.
The problem is most acute in the downtown area near the major hotels and if you make a wrong turn, within two blocks, you are in the thick of it in the Tenderloin district.
Whenever a mayor attempts to clean up the streets, the crazed lefties howl and file lawsuits preventing any cleanup.
Here's a peek:
It should be noted that none of this floats into the private sector. The Westfield San Franciso Centre mall is in the heart of it, homeless sleep right outside the Bart station entrance to the mall but the private security keep the filthy out of the mall itself which houses, among other stores, Bloomingdale's, Abercrombie & Fitch, Burberry, Amazon Pop-Up, Bose, Godiva Chocolatier, Banana Republic, Nordstrom, Rolex and Tiffany's. The #PPS works, or even being close to it works, because the lefties can't muck it up and if we really let the private sector alone private charity combined with respect for private property would solve the homeless problem in no time.
