Gavin Newsome once quipped, there’s such a thing as trying to help too much. That would sum up the utopian aspirations of San Francisco, trying to help too much! Hand out free food, get lots of bums, people who can work, but won’t work. Hand out free needles to druggies and you more of the same, plus you get streets littered with needles, most supplied by the city itself. What a plan!
According to one S.F. Public Works Agency they recovered 142,000 needles from the streets and sidewalks in one 3 block area, and that was in just one month. These are dangerous needles laying around on the sidewalk and never far away… human fecal matter. Gross.
The needles must be picked up by city workers and the feces must be washed off. How would you like to have that shi—y job? Yeah, me either.
And what has the City of San Francisco learned from this filthy mess of their own creation? Absolutely nothing.
The elected officials of San Francisco are as ignorant and lacking in common sense as the day they took office. Give the poor a hand! Feed the poor and needy! Provide compassionate care (needles to junkies) they say! But, nary one of these idiots would consider dealing with the miscreants just like you would any irresponsible, out of control dependent. Cut them loose from the strings that bind them to San Francisco! Giving is purely optional – so stop the giving! Get tough! I would like to see them make drug arrests, not hand out needles. Instead of the Public Works using a bucket and a dust pan to pick-up and clean sidewalks, I would like to see the Fire Department out there using fire hoses to wash down whatever needs a good hosing.
If life was tough enough in SF, I predict that those street hustles and druggies that found their way to San Francisco will find their way back to wherever they came from…and it wasn’t California.
Enough with this utopian BS.
