West Coast has literally become a dumpster fire

portland is same. city can't/won't clean up trash piles in some places. they're trying to expand a program that pays homeless people $20 an hour to clean up the city.

Despite a rat infestation and once catching on fire, the city has no plans to get rid of a trash pile that spans nearly half a block.

this is delta park. 5 minutes from my house. delta park is a huge park with many soccer fields and all spring/summer long is full of team sports events for kids and adults. also softball fields where there's tournaments for kids and adults. these kinds of camps and RV shambles are all over town. during no-pandemic times they'd be swept sometimes but it's whack-a-mole. portland, like other west coast cities offer a lot of services and sometimes that attracts people from other place to come here but also there's been a multi-year housing crisis, drug addiction epidemic etc etc. 

this road stretches form NE portland to the river near th eairport.  there's bike lanes on each side of the road and it was a heavily used cycling corridor. now it's a boondockers flop.

The number of tent cities and homeless populations in Houston have increased noticeably in the past 2 or 3 years, mostly downtown where all of the shelters, court houses, and police/jails are located.

What do they mean by Anglo-Saxon Architectural Style?
Because if I do a Wiki search I get this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglo-Saxon_architecture
I can't imagine that's what they're after.
I'm sure they actually mean to refer to Modern Stripped Neo-Classical Architecture, right?

just one more argument for a national registry of gun owners. want to buy a gun? your name gets checked in the computer.... basic "ok to sell gun" or "do not sell gun. alert local law enforcement"

etc.

America First sounds like shit straight outta Bioshock Infinite

Nick Fuentes, one of the main guys behind AF, is 22 years old. There's a non-zero cahnce he could have been inspired by that game (also whenever I think of AF i try to keep in mind that it's run by ppl who probably would have been the 6 year olds calling my brother a bitch on xbox live back in the day).

Also whenever I see photos of contemporary San Francisco I get the urge to go to the nearest park with a garbage bag & spend the afternoon cleaning up trash

there's a group called "detrash portland" that has regular meet ups all over town to pick up trash. usually coordinated with a truck w/big bin. they have a pretty good internet/media foot print and post stuff every week about the weight of the trash they collected. 

the last time i was in the bay area for more than a day was in late 90s and even then it was bad. nothing like stepping over a high as fuck teenager throwing up in the gutter.

there used to be an SF blog... bluoz i think it was called.. that documented scenes outside the guy's window and on his block. he lived in the tenderloin near 6th which was a famous mini skid row full of crackheads, IV drug users having sex on the sidewalk and in doorways and passed out naked etc. one blog entry got viral for a bit.. was a dude w/a needle in his arm smoking crack with a bottle up his ass butt naked but with sneakers on.. just having a great time between 2 parked cars in middle of the day. 

edit: blog still exists. he also focuses on positive things as well.. it's not all dystopia.. but lot's of info on local politics and housing rights etc. 

https://www.bluoz.com/blog/

edit edit:

he tags all the blog entries so "crackheads of the day" is one tag for all gnarly street stuff.

agreed. along with nationwide healthcare services reform from the ground up, allowing people with health issues to get the help they need when they need it, and allowing those in authority treating people like him to properly evaluate citizens for danger in these cases.

in a properly progressive America the mental health professionals would of course all have plenty of weapons to loan out to patients in need of gun-based therapy. :watmm:

realistically yeah, if the demographic shift in america continues along it's current trajectory. you're gonna have a lot of white people going "this is fine", but you're also also going to have a significant contingent (mostly disenfranchised young men) who feel like their existence is under threat (tbf a lot of the toxic masculinity callout culture of the last decade was pretty hamhanded, so i can see why young guys already in a bad place emotionally would take it as a personal attack). also for many the idea of white supremacy, neopaganism, tradism etc is seen as being the only way of authentically pushing back against globalist financial capital & the complete dissolution of any sort of meaningful distinction between individuals or groups. basically imo i think shit's gonna be increasingly cray for pretty much the rest of our salad years

its annoying because id support their neopaganism and tradism if it was voluntary and something they wanted to do in isolated communities with free movement of people where they aren't forcing their children to stay or oppressing women.  its just rather the fact that these kinds of things can't maintain themselves when less oppressive  alternatives exist for the oppressed groups of these systems, similar to arrange marriage being a requirement for the continued existence of the more female-oppressive forms of islam.  their pathetic victim mentality makes them think they get to act in self defense to assert their desires, at best, but at its worst instantiation they don't see themselves as the victim but rather the agent who should be and is allowed to create victims ie ubermensch. i feel the only way to fight Ur-fascism is decentralization of power.  its amorphous existence means it can continue forever and the achievement of communism.  you can always invent a new fascism that can apply to the present times.

      Not sure how I feel about this one. There seems to be a certain satisfaction to this movie but it also makes me uneasy.
