Welcome to San Francisco

Boy, the bleeding-heart lefties are doing a great job solving the homeless problem in San Francisco. I took the pic below earlier today. It is inside the Powell Street BART station stop. There were so many homeless in the station that I couldn't get an angle shot wide enough to capture them all.

A friend of mine, who lives outside the city, has decided to take his car in every day and pay $20.00 per day in parking, so he doesn't have to pass by this, which includes the smell of urine and an occasional human dump.

The Powell Street station is right under the Westfield Mall, which includes Tiffany, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, etc. Across the street is the Powell Street cable car stop which is mostly used by tourists.

  1. I say establish a 'camp' with fences & guards - largely open air but with some buildings - and put the homeless in there. Any charity can visit anytime and provide food, lessons, job training etc. Any charity which has unused shelter spaces can take a matching number of homeless. But otherwise the homeless stay in the camp and have no right to the streets. Does anyone agree?

    4. Maybe not fisicious, but definitely fascistic.

      We did. It's called the United States.

  2. Only if you agree that we also establish a 'camp' with fences and guards, and then put people like you in there. If any of us are interested in your comments, we'll come and visit you. Okay?

  3. Hell no. Poverty is not a crime. Your suggestion advocates a Singapore-type police state.

  5. What is the solution to the problem of the homeless living in the subway?

    1. Making them private property is a start, and allowing charities to set up homeless shelters without onerous and bullshit regulations (aka, allowing a women and children shelter without handicap access or separate toilets for men and women---since men would be banned) would help them immensely.

      Too bad the technocratic "liberals" that control SF (and Chicago, NYC, LA, ATL, etc.) make private charity impossible.

    2. Answer: I say establish a 'camp' with fences & guards - largely open air but with some buildings - and put the Federal Reserve, IRS, NSA , etc. in there. Any charity can visit anytime and provide food, lessons, job training etc. Any charity which has unused shelter spaces can take a matching number of politicians. But otherwise they stay in the camp and have no right to the streets...

      [There fixed!]

    3. Why the hell would men be banned from a shelter?

  6. From what I've heard, the state with the worst homeless problem is Hawai'i.
    People reach the end of the line - to their way of thinking anyway - and spend their last dollars on a plane ticket. "If I'm broke, at least I won't be cold..."
    Ooops. A few thousand others thought of that idea first, Einsteen.
