101 reasons to not live in SF
A San Francisco judge ruled Thursday that the city's "Care Not Cash" initiative violates state law.
As we all know, the will of the voters means nothing when you live in the socialist city of SF.
Proposition N was the brainchild of San Francisco Supervisor Gavin Newsom. Thursday, Newsom said that he was disappointed in the ruling, but the battle was not over. He planned to introduce the voter-approved initiative to the supervisors in the coming week.
Well, Gavin, don't hold your breath. When you talk about the "representative" government of SF, they mean representative of the homeless, the drug addicts, the welfare recipients.... everybody but the taxpayers. I hope the board of supervisors passes this legislation, because the homeless problem in SF is a huge stain on a beautiful city. There are areas I regularly avoid because I know it's where all the panhandlers are. The $320/month cash handout in SF is what attracts the homeless to this city-- it's more than triple what they get in comparable cities. Just give 'em their $59/month and let's move on. Cash handouts don't get people off the street-- services do. The cash can be put to much better use than what it currently buys, such as drugs and alcohol.
It will be interesting to see what happens with this, but I won't get my hopes up any time soon.
