Progressheviks never rest on the semantics game. That's why illegal aliens are now just "immigrants".And I'm making fun of you, comrade.
San Francisco's thinking, how they go about "problems" is the part you seem to be missing. Next they'll call homeless something else, but do nothing to actually address homelessness. Liberal thinking.
BTW, here you are, again, continuously responding to a thread that has nothing to do with you, while telling me how triggered I am. Carry on.
Huh-uhh! Trump says they're diseased dope smuggling murderous rapey animal invaders! The little kids are the worst! Probably indoctrinated by Al Qaeda & Chavez's Venezuelan Commies!Progressheviks never rest on the semantics game. That's why illegal aliens are now just "immigrants".
Then the rich living there and using the San Francisco area for their tech empires should have no problem paying a homeless tax to alleviate the problem. You believe in the very well off paying their fair share, don't you?It's not my thing either, but the free market has spoken and assigned San Francisco the highest value in terms of what people are willing to pay to live there. You believe in the free markets, don't you?
In 2018 there were 5,644 properties sold in San Francisco and only 2,208 of those were single family homes. Software employees represent more than 50 percent of those buying, according to Compass. One real estate firm estimates an average one-bedroom in the city now rents for $3,690 per month. (Another firm puts that average at $3,551.)
“Now you’ve got all these I.P.O.s at the same time, and we’ll potentially have thousands of young people, all now with money, looking to buy homes,” said Shane Ray, a real estate agent. “You’ll be able to feel it.”
SAN DIEGO (NEWS 8) – Did Prop 47 backfire on businesses?
Businesses in East County said the relatively new law leaves them holding the bag and lets shoplifters off the hook.
Voters passed Prop 47, which can reduce the penalties for some nonviolent crimes, three years ago. It re-categorizes nonviolent offenses like shoplifting as misdemeanors instead of felonies.
Hani Toma is an El Cajon business owner who has grown frustrated with changes that impose lighter penalties for thefts of items worth less than $950.
“That’s encouraging people to steal more, and you can’t do nothing about it,” said Toma.
Opponents said Prop 47 emboldens criminals even if they are caught.
“Usually the person gives a false name. They don’t have an identification. The ticket goes from their hand into the trash and effectively nothing happens. Effectively, in the state of California it is legal to steal up to $950 without punishment,” said El Cajon Mayor Bill Wells.
Proponents, however, said the proposition achieved its core mission of reducing the jail and prison populations.
“Even though the concept of this might be tenderhearted, it is not doing the homeless population any favors to enable homelessness,” said Mayor Wells.
Business owners like Toma said they are the ones left to pay the price of crime. “It is not easy to make $950 a day. We don’t make it in a day. Go to a neighbor liquor store. Steal from him, then what happens?”
eeh, yes. Sounds like they are stating fact? Trump's words do embolden racists. They have talked to actual racist who says so. This is a fact.That politically correct mentality that is behind this example eventually manifests itself in more than just words and emboldens those that look to lower standards for penalizing criminal behavior, no different than liberals claiming Trumps words creates an atmosphere that emboldens racists.
It IS important, but you're not going to like the answer, haha.Its important in the same way that many call illegal aliens undocumented immigrants. Why not call then what they are? Same with pro-life and pro-choice. It should be pro-abortion and anti-abortion.
Oh and heres more sources since you didnt like the OP's.
