Oh, So This is Why San Francisco Has a Gigantic, Wasteful, Expensive, Underfunded, Profitable Street-Sweeping Program

Monday, May 18th, 2015

Here’s a block on Laguna:

Of course most blocks in San Francisco get swept waaaaaay too often, even after the recent relaxation in scheduling that some areas enjoy.

So my conclusion is that street-sweeping isn’t 100% a scam for SFGov to make money, it’s just mostly a scam. And who’s going to pay for health care for street sweeper workers a half decade from now? Well, that’s SEP (Someone Else’s Problem), that’s something for the Next Mayor to work out…

The Overflowing Garbage Cans SF Rec and Park NOT LOCATED IN DOLORES PARK – Nonstop Pigeon Parties

Friday, May 1st, 2015

Stenographer-reporters should at least acknowledge a point of view what comes from somewhere other than the politically-connected RPD Spokesmodel and the politically-connected leader of the RPD.

The Simple Joy of Playing Your First Round of Street Tetherball in the Western Addition Northeast of the Panhandle

Monday, March 16th, 2015

Look for San Francisco Chronicle writer and long-time east bay resident CW Get Off My Lawn Nevius* to decry this type of vandalism, you know, after getting contacted, once again, by Yet Another SFGov Department Head.

Oh, our youth, won’t somebody please decry our youth, won’t somebody please harp against the externalizes they generate while consistently ignoring the externalizes generated by older people, such as our Favorite Writer From The East Bay. Oh well, more street clean-up work for DPW:

Ah, memories:

“[Appointed Mayor Ed] Lee has placed Nuru in charge of a city department with a $129 million city budget and 1,200 employees, despite Nuru’s proven history of directing his subordinates to illegally campaign for his mayoral benefactors. You couldn’t even make this stuff up, and even Examiner columnist Melissa Griffin flatly calls the move “stupid.”

Moving on…

Oh, here’s a graphic for Chuck:

Perhaps CWNevius is overcompensating for his and his generation’s crimes of the past?

Mmmm…

*And that’s just the past month!

SFGov’s Semi-Secret Abandoned Mattress Pickup Service, Seen Picking Up Bedding in Golden Gate Park

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

As seen on Lincoln out west in San Francisco County:

Somebody might have been using this mattress to sleep on in Golden Gate Park – I can’t tell.

This might be the RPD parks and recreation people – I can’t tell. (The Recology garbage monopoly people use hydraulics for a streetside summary execution of the box springs* they find.)

Another thing I can’t tell is the difference betwixt San Francisco’s legitimate mattress removal scheme vs. the process of simply wrestling your old bed** downstairs and throwing it down on the sidewalk in front of your door. I think you’re supposed to tell them your address and put the letters RMJ (Remove My Junk) on your unwanted booty.

I’ll look it up when and if the time comes…

*If you wanted to sell me** a box spring, I’d ask you what does it do and how am I going to eventually going to get rid of it. Oh, you say its job is to “support the mattress?” Uh, the same way the a hardwood floor might similarly “support” a mattress? And then people put a sheet of plywood in between the box spring and the mattress for “more support?” So I ask how does the mattress even know what’s under the plywood? Box springs are a scam, man!

**This is an option, a foam bed, on sale, from the Costco.com – SPONSORED LINK, SURPRISE! No, no, just kidding, Gentle Reader. I wouldn’t TBI you like that. Anyway, UPS delivers the box and you say, well, that’s a small box, and then you cut it open and the thing expands and unfolds like a US Navy life raft. Now some people say that foam mattresses are too warm at night, you know, for Frisco. YMMV

What Does RPD Burn in Golden Gate Park? – Is All This Smoke From Wood, Leaves, or Trash?

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

In my thoughts I have seen, Rings of smoke through the trees, but IRL I seen RPD making mad smoke by burning stuff in a wooded area east of the Conservatory of Flowers:
