A Status Report on the People's Republic of San Francisco

From Joe D’Alessandro, president of S.F. Travel, the city’s visitors bureau:

“The streets are filthy. There’s trash everywhere. It’s disgusting,” D’Alessandro said, adding he’s traveled the world, and San Francisco stands out for the wrong reasons. “I’ve never seen any other city like this — the homelessness, dirty streets, drug use on the streets, smash-and-grabs.

“How can it be?” he continued. “How can it have gotten to this point?”

Notes the San Francisco Chronicle:
Remember, this is the man whose job is to glorify San Francisco, which tells you something about how far the city has sunk.
SFC columnist Heather Knight SFC writes:
In January, I told you about hotel managers and owners speaking out. Kevin Carroll, executive director of the Hotel Council, which represents 110 hotels, said at the time, “People say, ‘I love your city, I love your restaurants, but I’ll never come back.’” 
In February, I told you that the Union Square Business Improvement District, which assesses extra property taxes to pay for services in the shopping mecca, was having to train retail workers on what to do when a severely mentally ill or drug-addicted person wreaks havoc in their store...
[T]he Game Developers Conference, which drew 28,000 international gaming professionals to Moscone Center last month, found itself in the public eye after some tweets from frustrated conference-goers went viral.
An Australian gamer tweeted that San Francisco “is a dangerous city” and the conference should no longer be hosted here. He cited a mugging, credit card theft and the general feeling of being unsafe. Others chimed in with stories of car break-ins, a knife fight and assaults. One attendee tweeted that all the developers he’d talked to were “still shell shocked after this year.”... 
San Francisco is one of the great cities in the world, and it’s like you’re in the Third World,”[Ron Olejko, senior director of meeting services for the American College of Rheumatology] said, adding that for now, San Francisco is still in his rotation, but more for the image than the reality.
But, hey, you can't blame the City Attorney, he has only held his post for the last 17 years and he is acting to fix the three-week-old scooter "problem."

  1. San Francisco is Exhibit A as to why a Private Property Society (PPS) is needed.

    Be careful out there Robert.

  2. Sure, most of the homeless are not illegal immigrants in SF, but maybe now RW you understand how those of us who want to heavily restrict immigration feel. And I don't care whether they have jobs or not, the issue is diversity brings in these kind of issues and sucks.

    I've been to SF but would not want to live there even if I had money.

    1. Re: He-Who-Fantasizes-About-White-European-Males,

      --- but maybe now RW you understand how those of us who want to heavily restrict immigration feel. ---

      You mean feel like a Communist? Because there's a difference between removing homeless persons from public sidewalks and quite another to restrict PRIVATE PROPERTY OWNERS from hiring, renting to, buying from, selling to and even marrying immigrants. Your comparison implies that YOU take all property inside the imaginary political line as ***communal property*** and not property owned by people who are NOT you.

      Thank you, Labby. You have once again shown your true colors, even if unwittingly.

    2. Torres, you have yet to show me that white Europeans are not superior and we owe just about everything we have to them. I know you are more of a libertardian cuck who won't move to Africa or a ghetto minority neighborhood with all those 'natural libertarians'. Yes, most of the countries of the world are garbage compared to white run ones. You are as stupid as the leftist who think all cultures are equal.

    3. White libertarian: "OSHA sure us a hassle."

      Black libertarian: "The cops killed my dad."

    4. Re: He-Who-Fantasizes-About-White-European-Males,

      ─ Torres, you have yet to show me that white Europeans are not superior ─

      I will have to take your word for it because, unlike you, I am unwilling to suck white European male schlong to find out.

      Leaving aside your race-specific homoerotic fantasies, your response fails to address what I posited: That you're comparing the removal of vagrants and the homeless from ***public*** sidewalks with the removal of immigrants from the US and that, for that comparison to work, all land would have to be public, communal, bereft of private ownership. Since most immigrants live in privately-owned land, that means property owned by NOT you, then one can conclude that you're a Communist. That's how you feel, isn't it? You said so yourself.

  3. I don’t think there’s any analogy between keeping someone off the sidewalks and keeping someone out of an entire country.

    1. Are you sure? Turd worlders bring their own problems. Bad enough we have our own ghetto population that can't find the natural libertarian inside themselves and keep a fairly clean violence free community.
