Years ago you spoke of food / retail deserts. Behold the rebirth and for the same reasons as before.  History is repeating itself.

One of the wealthiest cities that probably spends more per capita for the homeless than almost any other US city. And gets very little (if anything) in progress for solving the problem.

People with nothing move to where they can get something/anything. Republicans pretend to support self-reliance, and so provide little if possible. This is, of course, Christian™ - to deny those in need.

And, because we allow the super rich people (remember that corporations are now people, too) to suck up wealth and dodge taxes, the others are left with little. Little food. Little safety. Little hope. Tell them to poo somewhere else all you want; they can’t. Living on the streets eating out of trash is their version of keeping alive. Some are drug addled; some are crazy; some are just screwed over. Since they’re so different there’s no good expedient solution - but the GOP thinks that hurting them or shoving them elsewhere is good policy. Again, it’s Christian™.

A sanctuary city doesn’t mean it has adequate resources, but it means they don’t hate/fear/torment the people coming from somewhere else. So, of course the GOP mocks that intended kindness and tries to scuttle it when possible. It embarrasses them to be so parsimonious, hateful, and seen.

Newsome was Lt Gov when California declared itself a Sanctuary State in 2017.

Not endorsing anyone here, except Dimon's more articulate and rational approach urging people to listen more:

JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon joins moderator Andrew Ross Sorkin at The New York Times DealBook Summit to discuss the 2024 presidential election, whether the business community should be speaking out on politics, why he’s eager to help the U.S. president regardless of who’s in the White House, and more.

Or, following your line of thinking, Manchin wants something from Biden in return for staying out of the race. 

AFAICT, Manchin loves the spotlight and is milking the end of his 15 minutes for all it's worth.

Biden stopped DNA testing of minors arriving with adults to establish if there was a genuine parent/child relationship.
So someone arrives with a kid and says the child is his daughter, there is no attempt made to verify this.
Once inside the country the kid is handed off to someone/anyone and the 'parent' takes the money given to 'family units'.
remember that the USA is the biggest market for child sex trafficking.

Also - estimates are that around 100 000 single, fighting-age Chinese men have crossed the border ( concievable if 22000 have been arrested), and made their way into the country. Ordinarily, 100 000 men equals roughly 5 combat divisions.
There you go.


Now...you can argue with me about it, demand evidence etc...and understand that I am not interested in convincing you of what you don't want to be convinced of, I don't care anymore beyond how it affects me directly.
Or you can maybe go and find out for yourself, if you care about the possibility of it and think it may be problematic.
There is plenty to be found if you care to look.

Alternatively, if this is the kind of thing you are in favour of, then carry on as you were and don't cry when you or someone you love gets blown up somewhere, or when the Utopia you are hoping for in the USA turns out to be 'not what you were expecting'.

I would posit that most of the far left in the USA today are not up to the reality of said Utopia.
You will not llie it and you will not survive it for long.

And also remember....normally the traitors and activists inside of a country are among the first to be put against the wall and shot in the head when the occupying regime takes over, because they are clearly not to be trusted.

Finally, do not think for a minute that the LGBTQ-alphabet soup folks are going to be better off under a Communist regime. That is not how it works.
Watch them being thrown off the roofs like a human waterfall.

Have a nice day, folks.







Holy shit man, that's a lot.  You're not paying attention if you don't follow the money, a good deal of which is funding these gangs that cause people to run from their homes.  America, the great experiment, is rotting from within and frankly, that's what you guys get for dismissing the voices of reason for thousands of years.  If women had a respected voice, we wouldn't be in this shit right now.

Manchin ?  I would find it hard to trust anyone who trusts Manchin.  Same goes for Kamala.


Man, if I was a supporter of an old guy who had a history of real-estate failures, repeated infidelity, welshing on contracts, and literally ZERO political experience of any sort being shoved into the role of President, I don’t know if I’d be so quick to critique politicians’ resumes.
