"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - President Ronald Reagan
It did not get a lot of airplay but George Harrison's "For You Blue" was the B-side of The Beatles' "The Long and Winding Road":
"Because you're sweet and lovely, girl, I love you
Because you're sweet and lovely, girl, it's true
I love you more than ever, girl, I do"
Maybe George would rewrite his song today and sing it to the blues mismanaging our cities:
"Because you are dirty and lawless, I leave you
Because I walk around drug addicts', it's true
I hate you more than ever, I do."
Well, I can have a little fun with the topic but nobody is laughing in San Francisco, once one of most elegant cities in North America.
What happens when you let the criminals and drug addicts become the face of your city? Check this out:
Two-thirds of San Francisco Residents say their city has rapidly declined due to homelessness, crime, and soaring house prices, while a third say they are planning to escape within three years.
A new poll surveyed 1,653 adults from the city, finding that 65 percent said the city was declining, while 37 percent said they plan to live elsewhere in three years.
The city, famed for its Golden Gate Bridge and colorful ‘Painted Ladies’ homes, is being destroyed by Democratic leadership.
The city is now described as a “rancid drug-ravaged pit of human misery” as it becomes another failed city under Democratic leadership.
Yes, the once beautiful city by the bay is now a "pit of human misery" brought to you by the social justice warriors who think that every problem started in 1619 or can be fixed by a rant about racism.
What's the solution? It will take time, but maybe the current leadership can start by enforcing the law, such as locking up those who crash stores for fun.
We say happy birthday to Robin Yount who was born in Danville, Illinois, on this day in 1954. Yount broke with Milwaukee in 1974 and became one of the premiere players in the majors. Overall, he hit .285 with 3,142 hits, 251 HR & 1,406 RBI over 2,856 games with the Brewers. His best season was 1982: .331 average, 210 hits, 46 doubles, 29 HR, 114 RBI plus a well deserved AL MVP.
