Saw this in the morning while I was waiting for the dentist:
This is supposedly a world-class city where starter homes go for $1.5 million. Filled to the brim with junkies, thugs, freeloaders, bums pissing/shitting on the streets, and the worst part, it's all an accepted part of life. The SF budget (city of $800k) is like $10billion which is bigger than the budgets of ~15 US states and yet they can't keep shit off the sidewalks. I think the situation in America is hopeless.
I have visited numerous countries over the past many years and have never seen anything remotely close to the situation on the west coast. In Mar 2017 I was in India for business and decided to check out a nearby slum and sure, I saw poor people begging, peddling goods, and even sleeping outside, but I never saw someone shooting up, exposing themselves while drugged, or piles of shit/bloody needles lying around. I've been in China, and yes, the air may not have been the best, but I never saw a bunch of junkies running the place with the police standing and watching.
I've visited most large US cities and have lived in three. I am failing to see why so many people flock to them - high taxes, high crime, poor public transit, a huge % of the population on welfare, terrible schools, thug types wandering around all day with the police standing around, corruption, rude as f**k cops, and very high property/rent prices in some areas.
Yeah because SF represents all American cities lol. This websites cracks me up. Everyone knows the SF Bay Area is special kind of place for retards, autistics and Asians. No thanks!

No SF does not represent every city, but that still doesn't change the fact that most major American cities are overpriced, overtaxes, crime-infested shitholes.
It's bad in LA and other populated areas in California also. Record number of homeless and car dwellers for many cities.
True. California also has the most number of poverty level counties of any state. Unless one can live in the wealthiest few pockets (SJ, siliconvalley, BH, Irvine, etc.), or accept living in central-cal smaller cities turned into 'Little Mexico' towns or the pot farm ghost towns of northern cal.
20 or 30 years ago if you went to the "city" you could feel the energy in the air. That's gone now, I'm not exactly sure why. Private shops have been replaced by corporate America like Subway and Starbucks, healthy-looking active people have been replaced by people who have no zest for life and walk like zombies.
