The death of “The City by the Bay”

San Francisco upscale mall shoppers greeted with “gifts” in elevators

San Francisco, previously a destination vacation spot for Arizonans longing for urbane elegance, high-end shopping, spectacular restaurants and live theater performances, is no more. 

It has fallen prey to its far-left politics, with democrats Gov. Gavin Newsom and Mayor London Breed running governments that would be the envy of Karl Marx. Newsom, who has spent California into bankruptcy, refers to his wife, Jennifer, mother of 4 of his children, as “First Partner” rather than First Lady so as not to offend the state’s large homosexual community. Mayor Breed has announced her latest scheme, launching what she terms, Housing for All, a strategy to fundamentally change how San Francisco approves and builds housing. Among her priorities is implementing what she calls “Mayor’s Roadmap to Downtown San Francisco’s future,” seemingly unaware that San Francisco was previously known for its vibrant downtown. Kuleto’s, the unparalleled Italian Restaurant in the Villa Florence Hotel, closed after thirty years as has the hotel, which was plagued by homeless addicts blocking the doorways amid hypodermic needles and piles of excrement on the sidewalk. 

The San Francisco Standard headlines its report, “Downtown San Francisco: Human Waste Increasingly Found in Westfield Mall Elevators, Staff Say.”

Desperate to distinguish herself, Breed dedicates a page to informing that “she is first African-American woman mayor in San Francisco’s history.”  She is not the first female nor is she the first black, but those traits, over which she has no control, are paramount to her.

    There are no consequences for criminality in democrat-run San Francisco. Want something? Take it.

    Next we will need an article titled The death of “The Left Coast” as the disease of liberalism infects the Pacific Coast from San Diego to Seattle.

    • Frankly Speaking says:

      For the mayor to regard her skin pigment as a political advantage is why San Francisco has become a crime ridden disaster. We haven’t vacationed there in several years, though it was always a favorite destination. Loved the Union Square area, North Beach and Chinatown. Great shopping, great restaurants. Now street thugs have taken over, causing irreparable harm to the city and boldly stealing expensive merchandise with no consequences.

  3. Observer says:

    Even stores such as Target are not immune to ever increasing theft, the result of which is passed on to customers in higher prices.

  4. AZ Conservative Guy says:

    We are no different than California. We have a radical liberal in the governor’s office and a dem Phoenix Mayor and majority of the council members. The farce is that the city elections are “non partisan.” Believe that and I’ve got a bridge to sell you. Jim Waring boldly put Republican on his signs during one cycle, but I don‘t recall him repeating that action. He‘s now termed limited, with his current term ending April 19, 2027.
