    High minimum wage, Healthy Families, it's all just window dressing to make rich liberals feel good about themselves while they go around gentrifying every neighborhood they can find, pushing the non-rich into worse and worse areas. That city's even worse than New York when it comes to that.

    You need a license to drive, a license to run a business, but any idiot can buy a gun.

      Not really sure how you suggest we handle being a city that more or less everyone in the damn world wants to live in, in a state that has outlawed most sensible price controls for housing (except the few that San Francisco does have.)

      And yes, I have a lot of problems with the affordability of housing here. But then, I know two professional musicians, several artists, and a bunch of people who work in pet stores who manage to live in the city, and I'm sure they'd be just delighted to know that you look with scorn and hatred upon the policies that are, y'know, keeping them alive and able to live here.

      Classy!
