FINALLY




After several years of trying to explain to people just how bad California is, the TRUTH is coming out for all to see and I hope is embarrassing the powers that be, here in California.In fact, I know, it embarrasses them and that is why they keep shifting the blame or the story onto something else. The recent reports about the downtown streets of San Francisco; trashed with dirty needles, human feces, piss, and vagrants. San Diego dealing with Hepatitis C from dirty streets and human feces. LA with miles and miles of encampments. These are not exaggerations. San Francisco would rather spend 30 million on cleaning the streets than to actually do something about the vagrant problem.

I am also pleased that FINALLY, people from other states are canceling their convention plans, vacations etc. I believe in consequences as a way to enlighten those who refuse to hear other sides. Make it tough for them. Hit California in their wallets. Their arrogance needs some serious correction! I'm glad that the US NEWS report showed California dead last for quality of life.

I'm glad the TRUTH is coming out. The Golden State smells like s#*t.

  1. Years ago, NYC was a sh*t hole. Beggars on every street to wash car windows whether you wanted or not. Homeless sleeping and ******* in the streets, high crime, time square was a scary place. Rudy Giuliani kicked them out...where I don't know, ACLU said they would sue, he said "screw you" the city changed over night, tourism took off and business flourished. I think it may be slipping south a bit now with the current administration.

    1. I remember that. I stayed a week with friends in NY city in the 90's when Giuliani was mayor. I found the city to be cleaner than San Francisco. I was impressed.

  2. I saw that report, Debby, and was amazed. Those of us that live in other parts of the country always kind of think of California as the Golden State so it is sad to know how far it has fallen. xo Diana

  3. WOW. Tell us how you really feel. That's good, IMHO. I was in SF many years ago, late 90's. I never saw so many vagrants on the streets. I used to work in downtown Detroit in the 60's and 70's and it was pristine compared to the vagrants in SF. My one trip to LA in the 70's, where my ex used to live, left me eager to leave. If cities do not deal with the problems early on they only get worse. And being PC is BS, IMHO.

    1. City officials are afraid of doing anything that would upset ACLU and other groups. Something has to be done.

  4. There are always bad areas in every state. And Southern California is a bit too crowded for my taste, but there are beautiful areas in northern California. The housing in California is really high, but that's because people want to live in a state with so much diversity - we have the mountains, the oceans, the rain and the sunshine, all in one state. And the old towns like San Diego that go back for a hundred years are classic. I think we have different view points about California, Debby. : )

    1. I love California but I live in a more rural area and the homeless and criminal activity has risen so yeah, that gives me a POV that would be different from others that do not have to see it every day.Plus my old stomping grounds, the bay area - San Mateo is seeing crime and these cardboard communities right off 101. Its sad to me to see my state in the current mess that it is in. Plus expensive housing just moves out our poor and middle class. and moves in an elitist population that we don't need more of.

      That's okay if we don't see eye to eye on this.It all depends on what you see daily.

  5. I'll commiserate with you since I'm in Los Angeles county. I live about 12 miles from downtown L.A., but still we're seeing homeless in our area. So far we're not overrun yet, but every morning I check my backyard to make sure no one has decided to jump our wall and set up camp.

    Once my wife retires (in a year or two) I want to get out of the state and move closer to my grandkids and kids back east. It's sad because CA has such great weather and natural features. However the government is insane.

    Yeah, I'll vouch for what you've said here.

    1. Wow Arlee, I feel your pain. If my kids moved out, we would probably follow. Sad to see our state in this mess.
