I will soon be making a “Store” page on my site to sell some of the stickers you see (and link to buy the other “Econ Legends” you see). There will be an evolution string for both parties (Republican to Dem, and the one you see… Dem to Republican); The “tougher” Christian fish, the counter to “COEXIST” (the reality); and the “Pause Button”
“There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever seen growing up here,” San Francisco Mayor London Breed told KNTV. “That is a huge problem and we are not just talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.” (DAILY CALLER)
A website and related app that allows local residents to request maintenance or non-emergency services from the city has received 16,034 complaints with the keyword ‘feces’ in the last week at the time of this writing, and many pertain to human waste in public places.
The point is, here, that when a city becomes very Left leaning in it’s culture and years run (city council, mayors, etc.), it becomes a “shithole” city. LITERALLY.
“The city suffers from an excess of [human] excrement on public streets and even in the innards of subway escalators, where it renders them unusable.” (FAST COMPANY)
…HotPads used “reports made to 311 in San Francisco from DataSF,” mapping 4,000 data points (a.k.a. poop sites) from January to June 2013.” Mapping S.F.’s most pooped-upon neighborhoods–and their paradoxically pricey real estate
Most of us might guess this list, but in case we need confirmation, the top 3 poopy neighborhoods are:
Mission District – 16th Street BART Station
South of Market
But prices therein do not reflect the frequency of feces. Witness:
Poop strewn though it may be, the Tenderloin has enjoyed some new-found glory (and inflated home/rent prices) in the recent past, thanks to a tech surge led primarily by Twitter anchoring itself in that area. See Redfin’s data at right.
Of all of these pooped-upon neighborhoods, SoMa has increased in value the most dramatically, thanks to a combination of new construction, UC Mission Bay, and the aforementioned tech boom in the city. Again per Redfin, “The asking price of homes for sale in SoMa has increased 96% since December last year, while the number of homes for sale has increased 83.3%.”
A web developer named Jennifer Wong created interactive maps entitled “(Human) Wasteland” that illustrate the concentrations of human excrement in San Francisco, as reports Reuters.
The maps are intended to shed light on the amount of individuals living homeless in San Francisco. Wong created the maps using a city database that organizes telephone complaints to the Department of Public Works about human poop and urine….
….But she says perception is sometimes the reality to clients. The drive to get to her parking space is often trashed, where people have also used the bathroom, and she says the homeless on the street make for an uncomfortable arrival for her clients.
So she’s considering not renewing her lease and moving elsewhere.
“Who wants to come to a place where there’s litter on the streets, the bouquet of urine is in the air, I mean it will eventually take a toll,” she said….
One commentator said this of a story reported on the issue:
Finally an example of a run down, shot-up, burned out, poverty-stricken, urine-soaked, rat-infested, crime-ridden, feces-friendly city run by democRATS actually delivering on their promise of Free Shit!!
Survey: 34% of Portlanders considered leaving because of homelessness
….The average Portlander sees someone living in a tent and someone panhandling five times a week. Residents said they see drug paraphernalia and human waste or urine more than twice a week….
Los Angeles, etc. It is all the same story. Many of these places pass out free, sterile, needles to the drug addicted… offer food and comfort, and a “no harass” policy for the police. Then they raise the taxes to grow these services on the businesses affected by them.
How dirty is San Francisco? An NBC Bay Area Investigation reveals a dangerous mix of drug needles, garbage, and feces throughout downtown San Francisco. The Investigative Unit surveyed 153 blocks of the city – the more than 20-mile stretch includes popular tourist spots like Union Square and major hotel chains. The area – bordered by Van Ness Avenue, Market Street, Post Street and Grant Avenue – is also home to City Hall, schools, playgrounds, and a police station. …
The Investigate [sic] Unit spent three days assessing conditions on the streets of downtown San Francisco and discovered trash on each of the 153 blocks surveyed. While some streets were littered with items as small as a candy wrapper, the vast majority of trash found included large heaps of garbage, food, and discarded junk. The investigation also found 100 drug needles and more than 300 piles of feces throughout downtown.
If you think Russia spent money to get Trump in office, that was the biggest waste of money in history.
This admin reversed the policy of the Obama administration, which stood silently when Putin’s Russia annexed Crimea and attacked Ukraine. The Trump admin has sold the Ukrainians lethal defensive weaponry, including anti-tank missiles designed to destroy Putin’s Russian tanks in the hands of separatist rebels. (THE HILL)
The Trump administration has expelled 60 Russians, labeling them “spies” pretending to be diplomats. (DAILY WIRE)
About 300 men working for a Kremlin-linked Russian private military firm (many were Russian special operatives) were either killed (about 200) or injured in Syria on orders from the Trump administration (WASHINGTON TIMES)
Now, President Donald Trump approved sanctions on 38 different Russian companies and entities in response to Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, its presence in Ukraine, and support for the Assad regime in Syria. These entities include 7 Russian oligarchs, 12 companies they own and control, 17 Russian senior government officials, and a state owned Russian weapons trading company…. even sanctioning a member of Putin’s family. (DAILY CALLER)
President Trump is pressuring Germany to stop paying Russia BILLIONS of dollars a year via the gas-pipeline deal (YOUTUBE).
If Putin paid for Trump, Trump is a smart mother-effer, because he first used Russian interests to get the White House, and then immediately turned on Russias interests.
Putin, then, is an idiot, and Trump? The smart-as-hell-tactician.
A Muslim student at Michigan University challenges Ravi Zacharias on Christianities seemingly lack of ability in keeping the “law” like Islam and Judaism do so well. How can Christianity be true if it isn’t doing that which God demands? (I have recently enhanced, greatly, the audio in the file from my original VIMEO upload… and reconfigured slightly the visual presentation.)
Here is another example of media bias many people, either with their own biases or “not catching it,” do not notice. Rick Wilson is said to be a Republican, but as you can see (and hear), CNN is padding their guest spots with like minded people — not a diversity of thought. The Left gives “diversity” lip-service, but in reality, they want a homogenized way to talk and think. Totalitarianism is the name of the Leftist game.
Here are some articles about Rick “Latte” Wilson:
CNN Guest: Trump’s Base Wants to Deport Anyone “Darker Than A Latte” (DAILY CALLER)
GOP strategist: Trump base wants “anyone who’s darker than a latte deported” (THE HILL)
Rick Wilson: Trump’s Base Wants “Anybody Who’s Darker than a Latte Deported” (BREITBART)
A Leftist site notes Rick’s [rhymes with?] defense later of his statements… keep digging (ROUGH Language Ahead):
Wilson later defended his comments in a series of tweets:
A caller asks Dennis Prager a question… I only include the response by Prager as the caller drug-on-and-on Good short way to see the issue[s] at hand.

✦ California’s Climate Extremism: The pursuit of environmental purity in the Golden State does nothing to reverse global warming—but it’s costing the poor and middle class dearly (CITY JOURNAL)
Here is a great summary of a dummed down article of the above (via WE ARE SC):
since 2007 has reduced emissions by 10 percent, below the national average of 12 percent,
The state is home to a remarkable 77 of the country’s 297 most “economically challenged” cities based on levels of poverty and employment, suffering the highest poverty rate of any state, well above the rate for such historically poor states as Mississippi.
California now has the greatest income inequality in the nation,
out-migrant households had a higher average income than those households that stayed, or of households that moved in to the state.
minimum or near-minimum wage jobs accounted in 2015-16, notes the state’s Business Roundtable, for almost two-thirds of the state’s new job growth.
Dennis Prager plays some Donald Trump, comments a bit… then Prager starts to get into the real reason he is discussing this… MEDIA BIAS. The New York Times is caught lying (red handed – or keyboard). This is a great example of how the Left creates narratives out of thin air… and I bet more than a few swallow this stuff.
