San Fran's reparations committee proposes $5 million to each Black longtime resident, total debt forgiveness
Fox News ^ | 1/16/23 | Jessica Chasmar
Posted on 1/16/2023, 1:28:55 PM


San Francisco’s reparations committee has proposed paying each Black longtime resident $5 million and granting total debt forgiveness due to the decades of "systematic repression" faced by the local Black community.

The San Francisco African American Reparations Advisory Committee, which advises the city on developing a plan for reparations for Black residents, released its draft report last month to address reparations – not for slavery, since California was not technically a slave state, but "to address the public policies explicitly created to subjugate Black people in San Francisco by upholding and expanding the intent and legacy of chattel slavery."

"While neither San Francisco, nor California, formally adopted the institution of chattel slavery, the tenets of segregation, white supremacy and systematic repression and exclusion of Black people were codified through legal and extralegal actions, social codes, and judicial enforcement," the draft states.

The draft plan includes a long list of financial recommendations for Black San Francisco residents, including a one-time, lump sum payment of $5 million to each eligible individual.

Amazon perhaps? Nordstrom online shopping offers free shipping and free returns. www.nordstrom.com  Why go through the hassle of shopping in a store when you can do it from home? Saks is also online as are most retail stores. Maybe only democrats shop online in that case it could be democratic policies that is shuttering major department stores all around the country... not just in San Francisco.

"A growing number of retailers and businesses are leaving the area due to the unsafe conditions for customers, retailers, and employees, coupled with the fact that these significant issues are preventing an economic recovery of the area," a mall spokesperson said.

"[Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield] has actively engaged with city leaders for many years to express our serious concerns, which are shared by our customers and retailers. We have urged the city to find solutions to the key issues and lack of enforcement again," the statement added.

The National Retail Federation’s 2022 retail security survey ranked San Francisco/Oakland as the second-most hard-hit metropolitan area by theft in 2020 and 2021, behind Los Angeles. New York City was third while Houston placed fourth.

This is not so much about Amazon as it is about the convenience of online shopping for both the consumer and the retailer. Instead of expensive to operate retail stores in malls and metropolitan areas, Nordstrom and other major department stores that  operate out of warehouses which lessens operating costs like fancy stores, loads of employees including layers of management down to on the floor sales staff, shoplifting and security personnel and damage to the goods.

I had an interesting experience today when shopping at the local Walmart grocery store. While picking up a prepackaged container of raspberries in the produce section I notice an elderly lady standing next to me with two large containers of strawberries she had opened. She was literally picking through them, selecting the ones she wanted and putting them into one of the two containers. The container she kept had nearly twice the amount then the one she left behind. Which was half full with her 'womanhandled' berry rejects. This is disgusting on so many levels. I reported this to an employee. But by then the germy strawberry thief and handler was probably long gone.

Back when my grandmother was buying groceries, there was no such thing as a supermarket. If you were buying fruit or vegetables, you shopped at the greengrocer. Told him what you wanted and he would select and package it for you. Today, people can accomplish almost the same thing by shopping for their groceries online and either picking them up at the store or having them delivered.  Amazon has both online shopping and instore shopping at select Whole Foods Markets with delivery and pickup options.

Southern California was already headed in the wrong direction which is what inspired my wife and I to move to Oregon in the mid 60's. When I was a kid, you could find me at Will Rogers State Park Beach every day from about 10:00 am to about 5:30 pm when it was warm enough which was most of the spring, summer and fall. When I was in high school, this changed to Zuma Beach which was great for surfing.

I miss going to a beach where the water isn't freezing. The ocean at Oregon beaches never warms up. The average temperature of the water is 49°F The beaches in S. Cal average in the 60 °F. You wouldn't think 10°F would make much difference, but it does.

Video shows hellish conditions in migrant camp at California border with migrants huddled under trash bags
New York Post ^
Posted on 5/12/2023, 12:45:53 PM by nickcarraway

Troubling new images reveal the hellish conditions of a makeshift camp on the California side of the US-Mexico border, where migrants and their kids huddled in garbage bags, begging for food.

The trash-strewn encampment — which popped up between a primary and secondary border wall in San Ysidro, hastily arranged by Border Patrol — is filled with people who were hoping to take advantage of the Biden administration’s end to the pandemic-era Title 42 and gain legal entry into the US.

Since that expired and has been replaced with tougher new measures, their future became uncertain. Video shot by a migrant for The Post just at 10pm Western time Thursday — an hour after the health-based regulation expired — showed scores of people huddled under black trash bags and tarps which they had attached along the bottom of the razor-wire-topped border wall.

Reporter sets out to debunk San Francisco horror stories, is slapped with sickening dose of reality instead
American Wire ^ | May 12, 2023 | Melissa Fine
Posted on 5/12/2023, 1:50:43 PM by grimalkin

If you aren’t familiar with San Francisco, it’s almost impossible to know how far the once-beautiful city has fallen or how bad a mark the homeless, drug, and crime trifecta has trashed its iconic streets.

New York reporter Elizabeth Weil wanted to dispel some of the horrible myths about San Francisco for her Curbed.com story, but, much to her dismay, she found those stories are far from “fake news.”

“When I set out reporting, I wanted to write a debunking-the-doom piece myself,” Weil writes. “Yet to live in San Francisco right now, to watch its streets, is to realize that no one will catch you if you fall.”

Weil notes the many vacant offices in the city and cites an article from the San Francisco Chronicle titled, “Cities Are Struggling. San Francisco Could Be in the Biggest ‘Doom Loop’ of All.”

“The phrase ‘doom loop’ was recently repopularized by Arpit Gupta, a finance professor at NYU, in a paper he wrote last year with two Columbia B-school professors called ‘Work From Home and the Office Real Estate Apocalypse,’ about the consequences for American downtowns of workers remaining remote,” she explains.

Applied to San Francisco, the “doom-loopy vision” the Chronicle article painted for the downtown area “was not pretty,” Weil says.

“Workers don’t return, offices remain empty, restaurants shutter, transit agencies go bankrupt, tax bases plummet, public services disappear,” she writes. “According to research from the University of Toronto, cell-phone activity in downtown SF is 32 percent of pre-pandemic levels. That number is 75 percent in New York.”

Five days after the “Doom Loop” article came out, Cash App founder Bob Lee was murdered.

“Immediately people invested in the doom-loop narrative started mouthing off,” Weil writes. “‘You know, where he was killed used to be a good part of San Francisco,’ Lee’s friend Jake Shields told me, as he told anybody who would listen in those first few days.”

Shields, like “everyone with brains” had left San Francisco, Weil reveals:

Never mind the fact that violent crime rates in San Francisco were pretty low, lower than in most American cities of comparable size, lower than in San Francisco in years past. SF was a cesspool! — that was the doomers’ argument. City leaders, along with the rest of the populace, were “too compassionate, like so compassionate that they do not care.”

“The result, according to Shields, was not just an office apocalypse,” says Weil. “It was unmitigated, spiraling, homicidal doom.”

“You can do whatever you want. You can sh*t in the streets,” Shields said. “The logical next step is to start killing people.”

The reporter recounts run-ins with drunks, drug addicts, and the security guards who are forced to deal with them.

“On Market, near 6th, a security guard stood in front of Blick art supply,” she writes. “He’d just ejected a man who had been smoking fentanyl inside the store, a man his bosses suggested he should refer to as ‘an unhoused guest.'”

“In the first three months of 2023,” according to Weil, “200 San Franciscans OD’ed, up 41 percent from last year.”

One security guard likened the state of San Francisco to the “feral ghouls” found in a video game.

“It’s like a wasteland,” the guard said. “It’s like the only way to describe it. It’s like a video game — like made-up sh*t.”

“Have you ever played Fallout?” he asked. “There’s this thing in the game called feral ghouls, and they’re like rotted. They’re like zombies. I go home and play with my wife, and we’re like, ‘Ah, hahahaha, this is SF.'”

Laughing at “rotted” fellow humans?

“There’s only so much pain a person can take before you disintegrate, grow paranoid, or turn numb,” Weil notes.

The guard continued to text her following their meeting, she writes, asking, among other things, “Did I know that some of the street addicts were rotting, literally: their decomposing flesh attracting flies.”

She points to Governor Gavin Newsom’s recent trip to the Tenderloin, ground zero for the city’s fentanyl crisis. Following his brisk walk through the devastation, the progressive politician called out the National Guard.

“Almost certainly it was a political stunt,” Weil writes. “But did it even matter? Something needed to change.”

“A poll from the controller’s office found that San Franciscans felt less safe in the city than we had in 27 years,” she continues. “And of course we did. Everywhere you looked, you saw it billboarded: The social contract had ruptured, and we’d ceased to believe we could fix it. The city often seemed to operate like an incompetent parent, confusing compassion and permissiveness, unable to maintain boundaries, producing the exact opposite result of what it claimed to want.”

This is one thing that is likely not Donald's fault. The problems San Francisco is faced with is more the fault of local and state government. Just as is the case with most big cities with problems in the U.S. including Portland, OR.

S.F. has been slow to spend hundreds of millions for homelessness. Here’s why:

https://www.sfchronicle.com/sf/article/sf-homeless-crisis-unspent-funds-housing-17843541.php

Speaking of Portland, Nordstrom is not closing its store in downtown Portland. When I read this, I was frankly surprised because I thought they planned to close it. They did close their store in Clackamas Town Center, an eastside Portland shopping mall. On the other hand, REI is closing their Portland store located in the Pearl district next year supposedly because of an increase in crime and theft.

Interesting how shopping habits change over time. There is a growing trend to return to the small-town shopping outside shopping prototype. Bridgeport Village in Lake Oswego is a good example of a current trend in retail shopping. Back in the day, shopping malls where the bomb, now a lot of them all over the country are having difficulty getting tenants and staying open. You might find this article interesting, The Pandemic has left a huge impact on mall foot traffic, but you’ll need to sift through the data to see the full picture. https://www.resonai.com/blog/mall-foot-traffic.

Bridgeport Village... a Disneyland like fake small-town environment which some folks suffering from enochlophobia and mild claustrophobia, like me, find easier to navigate.

California Legislature Proposing Unemployment Benefits For Illegal Immigrants
‘Excluded workers’ who are not eligible for regular state or federal unemployment insurance benefits due to their immigration status

By Katy Grimes, May 16, 2023 4:06 pm

The California Legislature is proposing a program to provide unemployment benefits to illegal immigrants coming to and residing in the state.

Senate Bill 277 by State Senator Maria Elena Durazo (D-Los Angeles) proposes income assistance to unemployed “excluded workers” who are not eligible for regular state or federal unemployment insurance benefits due to their immigration status.

Perhaps even more horrifying, this program would be administered by the Employment Development Department and implemented upon appropriation by the Legislature of sufficient funds to carry it out.

Currently, the state’s employers pay for unemployment insurance.

This is the same EDD the massive fraud was perpetrated against during the pandemic. “The current estimate is that the EDD lost about $40 billion to illegitimate claimants, including prisoners (and not just from California prisons), garden variety local scammers, and international fraud rings, all of whom simply walked right into the department’s completely unprotected system,” the Globe reported.
