The Open Sewer of San Francisco


How can Nancy Pelosi continue to use up oxygen on the political scene? You must look at her base and degraded base; at the low dregs of humanity that form the foundation of her political support. Is it any wonder that, with supporters such as these her perverted political notions prevail?

I've been here before in The Black Hole of San Francisco @ AMERICAN DIGEST

"These days, the streets of San Francisco resemble the streets of Calcutta." -- Cinnamon Stillwell "Homeless by the bay"

San Francisco, America's top open-air exhibit of failed social policies, never fails to illuminate the lies of social utopianism. Although large sections of this city still retain their charm at a distance -- the swooping helicopter pan shot in from the Golden Gate; the brightly painted Cable Car cresting against sunset -- most soon lose all charm in close-up. Instead, strolling through this city has become like taking a long walk through an endless parking lot at The Homeless Depot.

Scene: A clear and crisp dawn in a small side street near Laguna and Hayes. Plantings in all the window boxes on fussily painted facades. A few very small well-kept front yards. Clean curtained windows. All in all a pretty and quiet moment in the city's morning.

Then, between two of the cars on the street and a bulging shopping cart on the curb, I notice a man who has obviously slept rough for at least 200 consecutive days. He is, like some haggard Tai-Chi dancer, turning in a slow pirouette and gazing intently at the ground. Then he lowers himself delicately down into a squat between an Audi and an SUV.

Seeing no real reason not to stroll past, I do and see that the man, pants to his ankles, is slowly relieving himself onto the curb. I note that he has no plastic bag which dog owners use to deposit the deposit. I was to see this behavior twice more in a single day in San Francisco.

And I was in the better neighborhoods.

But now Zombie brings it all back with

Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco

We here at TLC realize that our fabulous new hit series Sarah Palin's Alaska may not appeal to all our viewers. We understand that a substantial segment of the population has no interest in watching Sarah Palin or taking a tour of Alaska.

And so it is with great pleasure that we'd like to announce a new show carefully designed to appeal to those of you who don't like Sarah Palin, her state, or her values...

One of the very mild examples

I remember 15 or so years ago reading a graphic novel set in a sort of near-future dystopian American large city, and I remember being unable to take it as seriously as it wanted to be taken because every crowded street scene always had, somewhere in the background, thugs and hookers having sex right on the main street in front of a small, cheering audience as the rest populace walked on by.

Well, that'll never happen, I thought. I could only suspend my disbelief so much, after all.

Turns out the only thing that wasn't prescient was an absence of camcorders.

Progress! Sometimes it's just really, really ugly.

And yet they seem to be completely incapable of learning from their experience.

The consistent feature of the Right is their persistent underestimation of the hate from the Left.

San Francisco is the portrait of Nancy Pelosi in America's attic.

And I thought 'The City' was bad in the late sixties when I was a student at SF State!

This is the type of degenerate activity that occured in Weimar Germany in the early twenties. Remember where it led that nation. National Socialism to the extreme and genocide on a never before seen scale.

1978 thru 1980 I worked in Oakland at the airport. Friday evening was my official "night out"; I would take BART somewhere in the Bay Area and have dinner, maybe look around a bit.

Mostly it was Berkeley, already bizarre but not yet totally insane. I rarely went to the City. It wasn't safe, especially in the evenings, and I am not a timid person -- until the last year or so I was happy to stroll through Mexico City at any time of the day or night, and through much of Guadalajara.

Sex on the street corners in San Francisco was already routine by then, as was human excrement in almost any fairly isolated spot. Women often wore voluminous dresses and took the top position, maintaining at least a semblance of modesty, but there was never any doubt what was going on, and not a few providers and receivers of fellatio were oblivious to passers-by, as the others on the sidewalk seemed to be. At that time, though, the phenomenon was mainly visible downtown. The Avenues, Sunset, etc. were still relatively livable.

Having seen zombie's work before, I didn't bite on the link. Simple extrapolation from what I recall is sufficient to raise my gorge. I've never been to India, but from the tales of those who have I would not expect to see the equivalent in Mumbai or Calcutta; I certainly did not in mid-90s Rio de Janeiro.

After viewing that, I need a new word to describe the self-violation I feel.

Jewel, the most recent attempt to create a word to describe what thine eyes have seen is: "OMG!".

"San Francisco is the portrait of Nancy Pelosi in America's attic."

Nope. More like America's Outhouse!

Zombie just reminded me there are certain things that cannot be unwatched.

I need to take a shower... And maybe take some Alka Seltzer after this...

Hey...HEY! Are you questioning their patriotism?

There's absolutely nothing wrong with San Francisco that can't be fixed with tactical nuclear weapons.

San Francisco? They owe a sincere apology to Saint Francis.

As there is a procedure for territories to become states to join the union, shouldn't there be a way for the reverse to happen? Not succession, for that would require the state in question to do something, and clearly the people of Ca are planning on sucking money from the rest of us.

California is a psuedo state, incapable of governing in a federal system of states independence and rights.
