San Francisco Continues To Lead California Nuttiness

In many ways, San Francisco is the western capital of the bi-coastal nation of radical liberalism.  It is the seat of power of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – and has a long tradition of political extremism – California-style.  It is no longer the town where Tony Bennett left his heart.

As with many cities ruled over for decades by the most radical left-wing elements, San Francisco is a city in trouble – at least in terms of habitability.  Ever increasing taxes have not prevented economic disaster.  The average San Franciscan pays approximately 9.3 percent income tax.  That national average is about half of that at 4.6 percent.

If Democrats were really worried about income disparity, they would look to San Francisco, which leads the state of California in the lowest pay levels (under $15,000 per year) and the highest pay (more than $200,000 per year).  In fact, the city has more billionaires per capita than any other place in the world. Not exactly Senator Bernie Sanders kind of town.

With 70 per every 1000 residents, San Francisco has one of the highest crime rates in the nation.  Citizens have a one in 14 chance of being a victim of violent or serious property crime in any given year.  Like its sister city to the south, Los Angeles, San Francisco has a homeless problem – with more than 7000 people taking up residency on the streets.

San Francisco has developed a reputation as a dirty city, with trash lining the gutters and blowing around in wind spouts.  Then there is the human excrement problem.  The city actually has a “poop map” documenting human waste on the fairways.

With all those problems, you would think that the city fathers, mothers and others would not have time for silliness.  But not so.

They joined in the old craze of liberal cities declaring themselves to be nuclear-free zones – as if a resolution can stop an incoming missile.  They did this while drawing much of the electric power from atom generating plants.

In the past few days, the leaders of San Francisco have decided that abortion is the preeminent issue of the day.  With that in mind, they declared economic war on states that pass legislation restricting access to abortion – such as outlawing late-term abortions, live-birth abortions and requiring abortionists have access to hospitals.

Under the new rules, city workers are barred from traveling to the targeted states.  It is not clear if that only applies to official municipal business or also involves a city worker’s family vacation.  Also, the city will not purchase goods from any company headquartered in those states.

What is stunning about this edict is that it involves almost half the states in America – 22 states to be specific.  It includes Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.  Based on legislation pending or under consideration in other states, this list is could grow.

The lunacy is best appreciated when one considers that in each of these states are millions of people who are pro-abortion.  Many of the banned businesses are headed by women and abortion advocates.  They include some of the most desirable vacation locations in America.

Considering the San Francisco leader’s propensity to engage in meaningless symbolic – and even silly – legislation, perhaps they should make earthquakes illegal.

So, there ‘tis.

    California was one of the first states to legalize marijuana, and now magic mushrooms. Combined with its mild temperatures, it is a magnet for homeless drug users living on the streets/tent cities and those with serious mental psychosis.
