Dear new “tech generation” that has just landed in our fair city of San Francisco… and think that major changes need to be made for you…

… I would like to address this to all of you.  You know who you are.  You are incredibly arrogant to believe that you have a right to the really REALLY unbelievable attitude you seem to feel you deserve towards our city and its residents that already live here…  Here is a response to a response from an article that i read in support of these tech assholes who are (to me personally) out of their fucking minds…  Here you go.. I think it explains it pretty well to you all.

This is the problem we have with you all and your point of view….

Ps.  i am a little bit mad.. If you go and read the threads above mine, you can see where this agression lies….  I do apologize for the tone in this setting for you….

Six Sisters Houses, San Francisco

“What the F*** I mean is who the hell do you think you are to think that you have any right to come into a world class town and abolish its history.  You godam tech narcissists think that the world owes you a world of gratitude and the ability to take whatever you see that you want.  Again, i have to ask you… Who the F*** ARE YOU? … other than some ignorant uneducated in ANY OTHER field than the tech industry egomaniac?  Are you serious here?  You are going to look back (i would normally expect but with you lot, i am just going to hope.) and feel so ashamed.  Ashamed of your shortsightedness, ashamed of your greed, ashamed of your insensitivity and ashamed of your choice to want to destroy history for many generations to come.  You at that point SHOULD feel ASHAMED!  SHAME ON YOU!!  I think it is time for you all to open up some books… real books,  Not some C+ manual.  Take a look (and then… try to..) read some of them.  You will soon learn just how deeply entrenched the REAL (curent or former) SF means to people outside of your little foggy bubble.  Right about now, i bet that most of us “old timers” would actually chose to give up “technology” and go back to the dark ages if it were to mean that we could have our people filled with soul and compassion and diversity back as our neighbors.  I know i would trade you and all of the tech that you so praise in a HEARTBEAT.  I lived once without it and did just fine… i am sure I could survive just fine… Dont so much know how well you all would do though.  Cant wait to find out maybe someday.  When that happens, i am grabbing my popcorn and chair and catching a front row view of your well deserved melt down!!  As well as i am pretty sure quite a few others.  You aint makin any friends here with that f***** up attitude of yours and it needs a re-evaluation… FAST!!”

If you want to read the actual article and ALL of the comments (beware they can get a little agressive.  Clearly this is a passionate topic for all involved)… you can read it here…

What needs to happen in San Francisco for the rental market to ease…. (or at least a place to start!)

Image

 

This rental market is too far spinning out of control!! This is becoming a huge blith on the lives of all that have to be here. Some drastic measures are going to need to happen soon by our city officials before the rental rises are going to keep charging up like a freight train. I personally right now, without an act of god, see it reversing any time soon let alone level off.

Bottom line, we need to get more rentals infused into our city

…. Where oh where are we going to find them? Lets see, we can build more cheap ugly high rises, we can force out our minority and low income residents,

OR… We can start cracking down on ALL of the illegal leased rentals being rented out at insane prices for a weekend as vacation housing on sites like AirBNB. Not only are all of these rentals that are being included in the numbers for the city being paid for in 2-4 nights for the month rent and sitting empty most of the time, they are not being charged any of the hospitality taxes that a regular-on the grid- bnb or hotel is. It is a massive loophole that is definitely an invisible factor to the lack of available rentals. The landlords should crack down about this stuff too. If a landlord finds a tenant sub leasing their apt. out, and it is not written into the lease, that is just cause for eviction i believe. I am sure the landlord would rather be making the money off of the people needing a place than a tenant!

And.. i think we need some city sponsored and funded low income housing built. Fast. But not cheaply! That is just my observation of a couple places we could make a few adjustments to try and help ease the strain a little.

The city made a LOT of hidden deals with a LOT of companies within the last year to have them bring their businesses here. They can not do that and bring in all that new revenue without providing necessary basics. Sometimes it takes money to make money and they need to take that cash out of their pockets and build some more housing for all of these people that they just enticed to come live here. It seems very corrupt down in city hall these days, because this is really the city’s problem and the city is the only single source that can fix it.
