Homelessness - a tale of two cities

| No Comments

You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy than progressive liberal cities - specifically New York and San Francisco. The politicians do what sounds good, they do not do good. A classic two-fer regarding homelessness:

First, from the New York Post:

Why homelessness gets worse as de Blasio doubles spending
City Comptroller Scott Stringer is rightly raking Mayor de Blasio over the coals over his new budget, which proposes $2.3 billion in spending on the homeless — nearly double the outlay of three years ago.

Yet, Stringer asks, “are we seeing results?” The answer, he makes clear, is no: “The crisis is growing; it is not receding.”

Yes, Stringer wants de Blasio’s job. But the facts speak for themselves.

Second, from Ed Driscoll writing at PJ Media:

A New Entrant For The Fox Butterfield Award
"Despite its spending more money per capita on homelessness than any comparable city, [San Francisco's] homeless problem is worse than any comparable city's."

-- SF Weekly, while running smack dab into the Butterfield Effect, at least arrives at an inescapable conclusion:  "It's time to face facts: San Francisco is spectacularly mismanaged and arguably the worst-run big city in America."

I dunno -- Detroit and Newark, NJ might quibble, but still, glad we've finally reached bipartisan consensus on the horrific fate of a one-party town.

Be sure to click on the Butterfield Effect link - it explains a lot about the state of the media these days. Journalists are supposed to report the news and We The Reader form our own opinion. If we want to read the opinions of other people, we turn to the Editorial page and read those. These days, every news article is an editorial.
