I guess they were they highest bidder? Did they need to hire a lobbyist, a fixer, an expediter, to get this deal through? I know not.

Double Double Parking: How Much of Bush Street Should We Illegally Dedicate to Illegal Parking Every Weekend?

Thursday, June 4th, 2015

This church feels its entitled to park in the left lane of Bush every Saturday, but now it wants the middle lane as well?

San Francisco could stop this if it wanted to, but it doesn’t want to. This behavior from SFGov violates our Establishment clause, does it not?

Clement Street on a Clement Day: Home of the Inner Richmond Pocket Farmer’s Market – Sunday Sunday Sundays

Friday, March 6th, 2015

It’s a little small, huh, on a dreaded sunny day, of Winter 2015.

But the people who like it like it, certainly.

Wednesday, January 28th, 2015

King-American hauled off to UC at least one Jetta occupant:

The area around USF seems more like a college town these days, with tons of stus milling about the surrounding blocks, as compared with a couple decades back – IDK why, perhaps that’s just my impression…

What’s This, the Sunday San Francisco Chronicle Costs “Only $3.00?”

Tuesday, December 30th, 2014

I could do without the “only” part, frankly.

What’s that, it costs $10 to make a Sunday paper and get it to you, the Reader? Yeah, maybe, something like that.

But even so, I could do without the “only” part.

Frankly

If the NIMBYs of Alamo Square Don’t Like the Bay to Breakers Party, Then What About This Monstrous Radiation Machine/Cell Phone Tower?

Thursday, May 15th, 2014

Be afraid, NIMBYs.

Be very, very afraid.

And make sure to inventory every slight you experience this Sunday and then repeat all of them to everybody you know for the the following two weeks so that everybody can now how  you, the poor millionaire homeowner, has suffered uniquely owing to this street party what existed long before you were even born.

And just look at it – it’s pointed right towards you! Arrrgh!

Our U.S. Military Conducts Exercises in Plain View at Ocean Beach – Coast Guard Rescue Boats Practice Practice Practice

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Thusly:

Hey, you know who doesn’t train for this type of water rescue? The SFPD, which is sort of funny because they have the exact same kind of aluminum-hulled rescue boat, Marine One or whatever they call it.

Am I saying that the SFPD Marine Unit should try to replicate our Coast Guard and practice alongside the Coasties? No.

But I am saying that it’s absurd that the SFPD operates a heavy surf rescue vessel. We should give it to the government of the Philippines or something like that.

IMO.

White San Francisco Progressives Oppose Free Sunday Parking But Berkeley “Progressive” Randy Shaw Does Not – Why?

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

I’ll tell you why.

It’s because east-bay government contractor Randy Shaw is in the tank for Mayor Ed Lee.

So whenever Mayor Ed Lee changes his position on some issue, Randy Shaw just might very well put on his cheerleader uniform (it still fits!) and start waving his pom-poms.

Thusly.

“All San Franciscans should cheer Mayor Ed Lee’s plans to return to Sunday free meter parking.”

Is Randy Shaw a “journalist?”

“San Francisco’s Tenderloin is the city’s last remaining working-class neighborhood. And it is the only residential neighborhood in the city without any residential parking program.”

Is that true? NOPE!

“Tenderloin residents cannot park in front of their apartments or SRO’s…”

Suffer the poor SRO residents who can’t park for free all day long right in front of their buildings like a rock star! East Bay resident Randy Shaw weeps for them.

“Free Sunday parking should be sacrosanct.”

All right Randy, you know what we should do?  We should poll all the mansion dwellers of Berkeley, CA and then use the results to determine parking policy for San Francisco, why not?

And Randy? Why not work on spending our money better?

Attention SFMTA: The Big Beneficiaries of Charging for Parking on Sundays are Placard Holders and Rich People

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013

Well, here you go, the first four vehicles I saw on this block of Clement in the Inner Richmond District on a recent Sunday had handicapped placards and the fifth one was a new Jaguar.

See?

Is this what you want, SFMTA? Placard fraud ripping you off and richers paying you a few shekels per hour?

Oh, it is?

Well then, keep up the good work.

‘Cause I’ll tell you, all these drivers appreciated the easier parking opportunities I’m sure.

Oh, and your goal of 15% of the parking spaces on Clement being free at any given time will never ever come True.

Just saying.

On It Goes…
