What gets left in San Francisco?

© 2018 Jim Spence - Once upon a time, San Francisco was deemed to be a romantic place by millions. Tony Bennett recorded the hit song, "I Left My Heart in San Francisco," back in 1962 after it was written nine years earlier by songwriters: Douglas Cross and George Cory. Cross and Cory must be spinning in their graves.
The transformation of San Francisco has taken it from an interesting metropolis where hippie flower children hung out, to a disaster area and health hazard. Very few people think of San Francisco romantically anymore. Places like Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington are not far behind.
What has gone wrong with the city by the bay?

Human excrement in S.F.
Forget the absurd soda pop taxes and wildly expensive housing. Perhaps the city has lost its romance because San Francisco seems bent on attracting thousands of unemployed vagrants. Welcoming the most unproductive people in society seems to be a passion in San Francisco. Accordingly, it is home to an army of drug addicts who congregate there, simply because the city provides incentives to do so. San Francisco hands out free needles to anyone who asks. Heroin users avail themselves of the taxpayer-funded syringes and toss them on the sidewalks when they are finished shooting up. It isn't the only thing that gets left on the sidewalks.
San Francisco is also a sanctuary city for illegal aliens.
MS-13 gang members love the locale because they can operate there with little interference from law enforcement authorities, who are themselves handcuffed by those who are elected to public office by millions of Democrats. 
San Francisco is also hostile to all armed service recruiting. Protests in front of recruiting offices for the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines are routine.

San Francisco is a city that has been represented by Nancy Pelosi in the U.S. House of Representatives for decades. Not surprisingly, the city has been identified as the dirtiest city in America. Bums defecate and urinate on city streets as a matter of routine. Armies of city employees can't keep up with the pee and poop. It is a wonder that a cholera epidemic has not broken out there yet. Of course, San Francisco has been run by Democrats for as long as anyone can remember. The idea of voting for change via a GOP candidate is unthinkable.  
Recently, I ran across an update to the lyrics of the hit song “I left my heart in San Francisco.” It seems appropriate though I doubt it will hit the top ten.

The pretentiousness of Paris, seems somehow sadly gray
The glory that was Rome, just wasn’t enough about being gay
I've been desperate for relief, while searching for public facilities in Manhattan
I'm going home........to my city by the Bay

I heard a chorus of wind-breaking by bums, as I arrived in San Francisco
A bush sitting high up on a hill, it called to me
Dropping my pants near the rails, where little cable cars climb halfway to the stars
The morning fog, might chill my private parts.....I don't care

Bodily function relief beckons for me......in San Francisco
Sometimes I let it all go, into the blue and windy sea
While I dodge the excrement left by others in, San Francisco
All the golden stains on the sidewalks, still shine for me

The lyrics and the stark images kind of tug at your heart and make you want to honeymoon there, don’t they?
