San Francisco Hippies are Funny

It isnt really a joke, but I find it hilarious... I even voted for the man, twice. I am laughing at them that they are actually putting this on the ballot and then laughing again at the general petty partisan-ness (is that a word?) that is over running the country right now. I hear has President Bush actually is a pretty funny man, wouldn't it be great if he showed up and did a ribbon cutting ceremony.
In the end, we're all "only for a limited time," you guys.

I love visiting San Francisco, actually have another business trip there in the fall. A gorgeous city, a lot to do, with great eats and the awesome Anchor Steam brewery there. And it's a great city to walk.

But you couldn't pay me 500k a year to live there. It's the most liberal city in America, with absolutely no middle class. If there were organized statistics on it, San Fran would lead all major American cities in rich snobby elitest hybrid driving a-holes, and also bums in the street. The streets of San Fran are absolutely littered with homeless people.

And the weather is crazy out there.

You didn't mention any cool stuff like this:

It turns out that BART shut them off many months ago because of complaints that homeless people had employed the small drinking fountain for other uses, including personal hygiene. BART has no plans to reopen the fountain, which is in one of the city's busiest shoppings areas. "They were not using it for its intended purpose," said BART spokesman Linton Johnson, who was politely nonspecific about how the fountain was used. But a veteran beat cop said people used the fountain to wash up, to rinse out syringes and even to urinate. "That wasn't popular with all those tourists and shoppers from Union Square," said the officer, who asked not to be named.


That city is a hell-hole, and the only way people outside of it will care about it is if the big earthquake finally sinks it. They actually pay homeless people to live there, if you can believe that.

For example, while most municipalities offer benefits to the homeless in the form of a small cash stipend and other benefits such as vouchers or shelter beds, San Francisco still gives about one-third of its homeless population its benefits all in cash - as much as $395 a month.

Remind me to introduce you to Yellow Springs, Ohio when you're down my way next. :eek :shock:
