Socialist Democrats don't care about your progressive values. Only theirs matter for themselves.

    You should see the slew on videos on this.

    People lined up and down the street by the hundreds, bags of feces laying on the ground, needles and syringes everywhere, and the incredible footage of literally dozens of people at any given place lined up on the walls shooting their arms up with Heroin or other drugs and can barely move themselves much less articulate in any fashion.


    If the Socialist Democrats take charge it won't be San Francisco anymore looking like this. I'll be pretty much the entire country if they have their way.

    So many homeless in Cali. The state has a huge uphill battle to help all those folks. Hopefully they can figure out something to tackle this huge problem.

    Yeah, because if that's what the future looks like under the left, then I'd hope people would make a change.

    I've seen it, it's a nightmare. The state govt needs to focus on that problem and help those folks rehabilitate and rejoin society.

    I live by Angel stadium. The homeless here took over the canal -hundreds of them with tents as far as the eye could see. Very sad.

    The thing is that funds are there. L.A County has a billion dollar fund to help the homeless and mentally ill but they are just sitting on it.

    Well if the free 'clean' needle give away is any indication........

    It's so ironic. They want to control and regulate everyday citizens, but the drug addicts are given free rein to lay anywhere and shoot up in plain sight using government supplied syringes.

    They make plans and conduct studies and focus groups and then magically the plans get scuttled, the studies are ignored and the focus groups break up and then we are back to square one again. They spend more money on making plans they never carry out, funding studies and creating focus group rather than actually doing any work meanwhile we have these disabled people dying in the streets.

    So try to be clear on why you call the troubles in not just SF but major urban centers everywhere, including outside of the US. Why do you think "wealthy liberals" cause people to use drugs that aren't good for them? How is it that you think "wealthy liberals" influence people who, presumably to you, I suspect, otherwise wouldn't bother?

    Tell me why you think that coming down hard on people who have developed unfortunate addictions...maybe tossing them in jail, or worse...will help ensure that others don't fall prey to the same addictions. The historical evidence seems to suggest that they do...and not prodded by either liberal or conservative people, no matter how poor or wealthy they are.

    In other words, you seem to be laying blame for a very difficult societal ill at the feet of people who have liberal values and who are at the same time wealthy. Could you provide just a few points to make that connection clear and understandable? Or are you just giving vent to your own hatred of political viewpoints other than your own?

    Okay, you have described what you think "they" are not doing. Now tell us what you think "they" (or possibly even you) should be doing.

    Criticism of efforts by others that perhaps fail is really, really easy. Finding solutions and implementing them is really, really hard. On which of those are you focussing your efforts?

    Good grief. Way to lay out your biases transparently for us, I guess.

    How sad, sanctuary cities invite thousands of undocumented migrants when there's not even enough resources available to adequately care for legal American citizens. ....:(
