Chaos Is A Choice

Well, California’s rulers finally decided to clean up the junkie-strewn and poop-positive streets of San Francisco. But, of course, they didn’t do that because foul boulevards and medieval subways are a problem for normal people. California’s rulers did it because China’s Winnie-the-Pooh-looking dictator Xi is coming to town. You would think that the people of San Francisco would be insulted, but they’re not. Maybe they are into the city’s weird S&M scene on the masochist side, since they keep electing the people who force them to dwell in squalor. With basically a wave of a wand, and a bunch of cops with some support, their leaders cleared out the street vermin infesting the City-by-the-Bay overnight. They would do that for some commie potentate, but not for the people of San Francisco.

We always knew it was possible to have a city that does not look like a living Hieronymus Bosch painting. We saw what Rudy Giuliani did in New York City. If you are of a certain age, and or if you watch those gritty 1970s and 80s New York melodramas, you know that the pre-Rudy Big Apple was a Big Road Apple. It was a skeevy hellscape of criminals, losers, and degenerates. And Giuliani made that all go away. He made it safe. You could walk the streets. You could live like a normal human being. And of course, after a few years, the people of New York City forgot what it was like before and decided that now they were going to elect a bunch of people who take the side of the criminals and creeps. So, it’s no surprise today that New York City is a nightmare again.

What this all goes to show is that this chaos is a choice. It doesn’t have to be that way. You don’t have to have mayors who make excuses for the social pathologies that ruin it for everybody else. You don’t have to tie the hands of the cops. You don’t have to have DAs who refuse to charge criminals with crimes, but who will charge citizens protecting other citizens from the criminals who should have been charged but weren’t. You can stand up and say, “No.” No to crime. No to trash. No to hobos. No, no, no.

But they don’t. And they won’t. They won’t because their own blue voters don’t matter to them. The weird thing is that the blue voters don’t seem to care. They keep reelecting the same people with the same failed policies over and over just because the candidates have a “D” after their names on the ballot. At some point, you have to assume that the voters are pretty happy with the chaos because they are choosing it. It’s kind of weird to allow yourself to be treated with such contempt by people who depend on you for a job. Why do they allow it? Is it to get a virtue signal tingle when they refuse to support putting the hammer down on people upon whom the hammer would come down in any civilized society?

They can fix it anytime they want to. We just saw that. That dirty commie flies into the Bay Area and nobody cares that they ran off all the street people. And as soon as he flies back over the ocean, they are going to let the trash back on the streets. And then the people San Francisco are going to scratch their heads and wonder why their city has turned into an urban toilet. And then they’ll keep voting Democrat.

It’s bizarre. If not a death wish, it’s at least a miserableness wish. Just the other day, here in Los Angeles, one of our main interstates, The 10, was closed down by a fire. Now, you may ask how a fire can shut down a massive construct of concrete and rebar. Well, it would have to be a pretty damn big fire. And it was. Do you want to know what caught fire? A hobo encampment underneath an overpass. It was so built-up with junk and trash and the detritus of broken people that the leadership of Los Angeles just allowed to stay there that when it caught fire it was hot enough to actually crack concrete.

And please shut up if you’re one of those 9/11 truther idiots. I don’t want to hear anything from you right now. Or ever.

The fact remains that this tolerance of deviance has grown so profound that it’s physically destroying our infrastructure. This isn’t just an inconvenience. Interstate 10 is an artery. Millions of people who need it to go to work and live their lives and support their families. The need to use that road, but now they can’t because a bunch of liberals in Los Angeles were afraid to say “No” to a bunch of bums.

It’s not hard. Say it with me: Hey, move your trash. You can’t live under the bridge. You are not a troll.

It appears that the “hobo camp” was neither where the fire started, nor the cause of the damage to the overpass. See the below excerpt of a news article.

“Apex blatantly violated its lease at the Lawrence Street property for more than a decade, even before the company stopped paying rent. Images captured by Google Maps over the years show flammable materials stacked against freeway columns in nearly every year since 2009. Caltrans issued strict storage guidelines in 2018 requiring materials to be kept 20 feet from columns following a fire that collapsed a portion of Interstate 85 in Atlanta.
Nowaid allegedly crammed a dozen businesses onto the 49,000-square-foot site where stockpiles of wood pallets, cardboard and leftover hand sanitizer eventually ignited to shut down one of the busiest freeways in the country. More than 300,000 commuters use the 10 daily and officials estimate it could take three to five weeks to repair the damage.

Company leasing site of 10 Freeway fire hadn’t paid rent in more than a year, illegally subleased spaces

So, under-regulated private business activity has cost untold millions in personal and public damages.

And who should be regulating them in California, one of the most highly-regulated places on earth? Yeah, that’s right… DEMOCRATS.

Your article is total bullshit. Homeless people didn’t cause the fire. A corrupt private business operation caused the fire.

It’s not my article, dumbass, and the homeless probably did cause the fire. They cause about 80% of the wildfires in California.

So, all residents of Democrat-run shit-hole cities have to do in order to get their cities cleaned up is to join the Communist Party?
