    Unemployment (as of Dec):

    National- 9.7

    San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont, CA Metropolitan Statistical Area- 10.1

    Unemployment Rates for Metropolitan Areas

    California: ~12%

    So their unemployment is lower than the state average and only slightly higher than the national average.

    They have universal preschool for those who wish to send their children, universal healthcare, and universal after school programs for youth.

    Healthy San Francisco:


    They boast California's highest performing urban school district.

    They put salad bars in the schools to encourage healthful eating and a healthy populace.

    Paid sick leave is mandated

    Employers' Perspectives on San Francisco's Paid Sick Leave Policy

    The crime rate is the lowest in a decade.


    Now, it's not perfect. Like most cities in the current economy, their arew budget cuts to be made and I strongly disagree with their sanctuary city policies. Overall, however... I'm not seeing how 'San Francisco Values' are necessarily so evil.

    You bet it's not perfect. At 6.6 BILLION for the budget, they're spending twice as much as the entire state of Idaho. :eek:
    What's more, there's not a whole lot of accountability for their spending. Projects run over budget, sometimes to the point where they're having to have another referendum to get money, programs overlap and are not expected to prove results, and they can't get rid of their dead weight.

    San Francisco has a black population lower than probably any other big city -- 7 or 8 percent, and DROPPING.

    Its "minority" population consists mostly of calm, clean Asians.

    And homosexuals have no children.

    San Francisco is nice, but not everywhere can be San Francisco.

    SF is verging on insolvency just like much of CA (I can say this, I live in the Bay Area). High real estate prices have made the demographics of SF a bit out of the norm; but even these have fallen, resulting in less property tax revenue.

    There is a huge supply of vacant commercial real estate in the Financial District and SOMA. Another indicator of bad times ahead for The City.

    Values in S.F---You're joking right? From the streets of Haight/Ashbury to now--:lol::lol:

    They've suddenly come up with "values"--while they continually re-elect NANCY PELOSI?
