Spot on. SanFranSicko has become a crime ridden cess pool. Once a beautiful city has become a liberal dystopian nightmare.

Very true and happy birthday. Someday soon a day of reckoning will come when the lack of tax revenues will impact the cities ability to pay the very generous pensions of its retired blue collar workers and politicians. We already face public schools closures in the near term for lack of students. Perhaps when the money runs out the Mayor and Sups will be forced to make the city more attractive to tourists and residents alike. That means dealing with crime and tightening the purse strings when it comes to funding NGOs who attract more homeless and drug dealers.

Thanks! Yeah it’s going to get very interesting when the money runs dry. The City will become increasingly just the haves and the have nots. Sadly for those of us stuck in the middle, I think it will be a rough ride.

If we are lucky it will be like 2001 when the dot coms all went bust and then 911 screwed us all. I say lucky because the city became more affordable and attracted a lot of innovation and new jobs. Businesses are priced out right now with the high cost of commercial space and all the regulations. We need a wake up call and we need moderates to run for office and help fix this mess. The far left solutions are making a bad thing even worse. I agree Musk will prolly move Twitter but its shouldn't have been there in there first place. Maybe they can use that as in incubator for new tech ideas.
