2) How much does it cost to prosecute a public urination case or any of the other "quality of life" crimes as the article describes them? Let's throw someone in jail for a month for camping in public. :? Or you could tackle the homeless problem by...wait for it...providing homeless housing...with toilets. It's a win-win.

A city in Alberta (maybe Lethbridge or Medicine Hat?) discovered this a few years back and virtually eliminated homelessness and saved money by building beds.


Lethbridge has the highest, longest bridge in North America. At least it did back in the 70s.

And you know that, because you slept under it. :coffee:

A homeless man dumped a bucket of “hot” diarrhea on a Los Angeles woman near the Hollywood Walk of Fame — an unprovoked attack that’s left her with PTSD, she said this week.

Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

Oracle will move its annual OpenWorld conference to Las Vegas because San Francisco is too expensive

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/12/10/oracle- ... forum.html

Oracle is moving its annual OpenWorld conference from San Francisco to Las Vegas and it signed a three-year agreement with the Caesars Forum for the move.

The San Francisco Travel Association estimates the move will cost San Francisco $64 million a year.

The travel group told members that Oracle cited San Francisco’s high hotel prices and “poor street conditions” as reasons that attendees were unhappy with the city.

Of the 345,547 ammunition background checks performed, only 101 stopped the buyer because he or she was a “prohibited person” who can’t legally possess ammunition, according to state Department of Justice data.

Yet another 62,000 ammunition purchases were rejected as well. Those people left empty-handed because their personal information hadn’t been entered into the state’s system, or the information on their identification cards didn’t match what officials had entered into the California gun registry database, which retail sellers must review when they do the ammunition background check.

Course this might not be overturned in the lib CA courts, but it will in the Fed Courts..

Poor California.....I don’t know how they became the nation’s largest economy and most populous state. Why and how could any corporation operate there? You would think that earthquakes, wildfires and drought would drive everyone out of there! If I were a Californian I would much rather come to the dank, cold, grey East Coast where people are hyper politically active and engage 24/7 about politics. It’s a much higher quality of life, man!

691,145 Californians left last year. What states did they go to?
