  1. If you are going to SAAAn Francisco be sure to wear some dingle berries on your bunghole ! Come to think of it in the video of a young Scott Mckenzie singing this back in the 60s , his mustache looks like two little tiny turds ! Was this prescient or what ?

  2. 00:42 hey Jon, maybe you should be part of the solution instead of complaining about the problem.

  3. I lived in San Francisco in the early 1980s, it had its seedy areas, but generally was a decent fun place to live. I compare it to Hemingway's version of Paris in the 1920s in his "A Moveable Feast." It was, over the years, my family's favorite vacation destination. In 2009 that began to change. My wife and I saw things on the streets that were troubling to us. Over the next 10 years we have heard nothing but a growing sense of frustration and anger from our friends who still live there. I am glad that tourism is failing. Loss of revenue is the only thing that will get the attention of the city leaders. I fear that it will have to get much worse before changes are made.

  4. Sorry, but that's what you liberals get. I hope it gets so bad tourism goes to zero. Maybe then you'll wake up to reality. Maybe..but I doubt it.

  5. You can't trust this video,if MSNBC,CBS,CNN,HLN,NBC,PBS,ABC DIDN'T REPORT IT THEN ITS NOT RELIABLE….DEMON-KKKRATS RUIN CITIES THIS IS THE FUTURE OF AMERICA, KICK GOD OUT,LEGALIZE POT,DEMASCALATE MEN AND BOYS,TREAT THE POOR AND LAZY LIKE VICTIMS, CREATE BIG GREED GOVERNMENT

  6. If they are going to give free needles out,then put those needle return boxes on every corner.
    That would not cost thousands to do,well maybe a few thousand,but not what they're paying for clean up!
    I would make the ones sign a waver that receive those needles,saying if you DON'T RETURN THEM PROPERLY ,IF WE FIND ONE ON THE STREET,WE CAN REVOKE THIS PROGRAM FOR EVERYONE!
    WHAT GOOD IS TO GIVE CLEAN NEEDLES TO STOP DISEASES,IF THE NEEDLES' END UP HURTING THOSE INNOCENT OF USING THEM?!
    CHILDREN,ANIMALS,PEOPLE STEPPING ON THEM!!
    HOW CAN THAT PREVENT DISEASE?!
    THESE PEOPLE ARE STUPID THAT RUN OUR GOVERNMENT OR THEY'RE SABOTAGING AMERICA FOR EVIL GAIN ON PURPOSE!!
    I THINK IT'S THE LATER ONE,ON PURPOSE!!
    3RD World LEADERS TURN OUR CITIES INTO NIGHTMARES!

  7. what's new, everyone supports the Democrats. live with it. been going on for 25 years, glad you noticed today. Democrats own the law and FBI and Republicans. suck it up. American citizens have to. WHILE ALL of Congress bitches. I wish it would sink in the ocean

  8. So the government is solutionless,by the way I am Lamborghiniless,I suggest financialess is a more correct label and gives a lot clearer vision to help these people

  9. STOP GIVING THEM CHANGE AND MONEY! IT IS YOUR OWN FAULT, THE DRUGS ARE NOT FREE. WHERE IS THE MONEY COMING FROM????????

  10. Well as long as yall keep electing Pelosi and the rest of her Coven you ain't seen how bad it will get !

  11. FACT….RICH WHITE PEOPLE TAKE MONEY FROM HOMELESS PEOPLE….BUTT AT THE SAMETIME….( DONT WANT TO SEE THE SAME HOMELESS PEOPLE THEY TAKE MONEY FROM )….THAT IS….( MENTAL ILLNE-$$ )….RICH WHITE PEOPLE CREATE THE PROBLEMS BUTT DONT WANT TO SEE THE PROBLEMS THEY CREATE….THIS IS WAY BEYOND MENTAL ILLNESS….( THIS IS EVIL AND BEYOND )

  12. These vagrants causing all these problems aren't "homeless" they're drug addicted or nuts or both. Using the word "homeless" get;s them sympathy. They're VAGRANTS!

  13. SAN FRANCISCO IS AN OBAMA VILLE- JUST LIKE INDIA, PAKISTAN, ARABIC HELLHOLES, SOUTH AMERICAN, MEXICAN, AND AFRICAN 3RD WORLD HORRIBLE DISASTERS-WHICH ARE NOTHING MORE THAN BIG HUGE GIANT SLUMS! I FOR ONE DO NOT WANT THIRD WORLD CHARACTERS RUNNING MY GOVERNMENT. PEACE.
