Article from Fox News by John Stossel.
San Francisco is one of the richest cities in the world. It’s given us music, technology and elegant architecture.
Now it gives us filthy homeless encampments.
One urban planner told me, “I just returned from the Tenderloin (a section of San Francisco). It’s worse than slums of India, Haiti, Africa!”
So I went to San Francisco to make a video about that.
Read the entire article at Fox News.
I left the USA in 1988, because the bureacrats kept stopping my underground dome house construction in rural PA. We came to Mexico, where we have built 20 houses, mostly WITHOUT ANY PERMITS at all, and we sold them to willing buyers every time…..
Before I retired my business ventures took me to Frisco fairly often. One of my major customers was in downtown and my company participated in conference/exposition there every other year. I always enjoyed my visits. I would no linger consider going there for any reason.
I was wondering if you were related to Mike Higginbotham who used to own the Shakey’s Pizza Parlor in Reno.
He was a great guy and used to sponsor a lot of law enforcement events.
Thank your politicians.
Just a crap hole city in a real crap hole communist state!
la is just as bad..
Some more insanity Cortes, Warren, Maxine Waters, Booker, Sanders and more.
If it’s one of the richest cities in the nation and so called liberal. I would truly love to know why these people aren’t card for in a prior manor? The city that talks it but doesn’t walk it! Hypocrites to the max!
If it’s one of the richest cities in the nation and so called liberal. I would truly love to know why these people aren’t cared for in a proper manor? The city that talks it but doesn’t walk it! Hypocrites to the max!
and california elected Gavin Newsom the reason for this ………when will people OPEN their eyes!!!!
People cannot open their eyes because America has become a dumbed down society (thank you Obama), they not longer care unless it’s free or it’s sensationalized by the media for some crap allegation. S.F. has demised since the 60’s, and those who live there don’t know what to do to get out. The voting polls work against them so no matter how hard they try to change things it doesn’t work. Remember Chicago back in the 1920′ , Al Capone? The dirtiest most corrupt city has not changed and only put more corrupt officials in place. What it would take is practically a bomb dropping on Chicago to wake up. Now, NYC, when you elect AOC a bartender to office with 16,000 votes, how do you expect to do a clean up? She’s proud that Amazon is not moving there with 25000 jobs and revenue of $25billion. This is the sickness that prevails in America. The common sense people are shrinking, maybe due to the influx of immigrants I don’t know. The blacks are unhappy because they can’t rule America, will never allow us to forget the slavery, yet NONE of them even know about it. They don’t care about finding out by asking grandparents etc. it’s been genetically instilled in them that they have been wronged. Well, the people of America who have been wronged are the Native Americans. Go visit a Pueblo. The government needs to stop giving out free money/phones to everyone who does not want to work. They can clean the highways for all I care, but our illustrious government won’t even make them do that. We live in a dumbed down America, being taught crap in colleges by crappy profs, who should be fired, forget the freedom of speech….it’s been misused. I’m for getting tough on these people, I’m tired of fighting a war almost everyday with dividers or those inciting riots. And when you have a Pelosi who is brain dead and needs a psychiatric evaluation while she holds up America from a Wall, while SHE HAS A WALL around her property? I’d LOVE to move some MS-13 gangs, some human traffickers, some drug people, some murders into her property to where she is overwhelmed and police can’t help. Wonder how she might feel when it hits close to home. Enough.
