This article succinctly describes the modern liberal progressive doctrine using San Francisco as an example. It also describes why my wife and I never, or hardly ever, go into the City. While I have done business in the City, I actually try to avoid it because it is far away (90 road miles, one way) from San Jose, and because the parking problems are even worse than described in the article.
Problems with homeless people and illegal immigrants are not tolerated in San Jose like they are in San Francisco, so you don't see these people on the streets, except in front of Home Depot stores.
Look out America, San Francisco is what progressives want to foist onto the rest of America.
Hat tip Right on The Left Coast.
UPDATE: 1/21/10. Added the title and corrected typos and some phrasing in the post. I still thank that the original article was dynamite.
