Three sane San Francisco supervisors

San Francisco supervisors have passed a resolution to ask their congressional leaders to impeach President Bush. Exercising what authority the Constitution has granted them in this area, which boils down to the right to express an opinion, they voted 7-3 for the impeachment resolution. I am shocked it was not 10-0! It appears SF has three sane supervisors, which now are probably in danger next election.

I think Boise, Idaho should pass a resolution naming San Francisco as the 2006 laughingstock of the year.

    Hey Pal,
    Given that your one of the FEW Rep. that is willing to listen to different opinions and willing to debate your views when others will just delete posts they don’t like. I thought I'd stop by and see the lay of the land here.

    I gotta agree with you on this one.

    I lived in SF for four years. I am for the most part a pretty down to earth guy that will listen to opposing points of view, but when I lived there I was always shaking my head. It always appeared that the Small faction in the city that wanted Anarchy were never happy unless there was total CHAOS all the time ...and they seemed to be calling the shots.

    However, I still have friends there that say your Pal Arnie has dug a real hole for himself and will have a tough time come Nov.

    Joe

    Ps so your a Vincent Price fan ..huh?

    Even before the Haight-Ashbury days, SF attracted some real freaky people. SF grew as a west coast banking center and got it's start as that, just after the gold rush> Before that, it was just cow town. Cattle traders.

    Anytime you have money as one of your main industries, you will attract all kinds of people. Some balanced and some not so balanced. Sounds like the unabalanced are outnumbering the balanced, these days.

    Joe, thanks for stopping by and making a comment. I don't know a lot about SF politics, but every time I get a glimpse it does seem pretty chaotic. Like them refusing to allow that retiring ship to dock because they are so anti-military.

    Arnold does seem to be spinning his wheels. I think he has spent much of his Hollywood star power. The good news for him is that it does not seem likely the Meathead will be running against him with his illegal issues. I don't know, California just seems bent on self-destruction economically.

    I love Vincent Price! I have quite a number of "old time radio" shows where he starred in. What a great voice. Price and I share a love for Edgar Allen Poe, but my favorite movies of his are the Dr. Phibes.

    LA, What is so amazing is that I love to visit that freaky place. Between Muir Woods, Fisherman's Wharf, Chinatown, the Ocean and being able to drive crazy up and down those hills my whole family loves it.

    Thanks Chris. I think SF simply has attention deficit disorder.

    Yeah, even though I'm glad I don't live there anymore S.F. is by far one of the most beautiful cities in the U.S. if not the world. Too many Freaks for me though.


    There is tons to do there and there is nothing like watching the sun go down over the Pacific drinking a cold one at the Cliff House or watching the lights come up on The Golden Gate on the Marina Green.

    Some of the best food from around the world for cheap to all within a cabs ride..Listen to me I sound like the Travel Channel.


    Next time your there check out Sam’s Café in Tiburon (Marin). You can sit on the dock eat GOOD Calamari and look at the city from across the Bay and it is Ten Degrees warmer than SF.

    Also, at Polk and Broadway there was a Chinese restaurant called Tai Chi that had KILLER food for cheap.

    When I was out there I worked at the Fairmont hotel on Nob Hill. Check that out next time as it has some cool photos from the 06 fire as it was one of the few buildings that made it.


    Yeah, I saw that you mentioned Dr. Phibes. My dad took me to see that as a kid. Pretty wild flick..there was a sequel if I remember. Yep, Vincent Price was a great talent.. I loved those old horror flicks.

    I don't recall much being cheap in SF. We went to a Chinese place and thought things tasted a little funny. We then drove about a mile away afterward and saw some home-made sign saying "dog furs for sale". I think I know where the rest of the dogs went.

    Thanks for the suggestions. My wife and I have been wanting to go for sometime and just might. I may need to go there on business in a couple of weeks, but I may have someone else from my team go instead.

    The Abominable Dr. Phibes was about how the evil genious Dr. Phibes was exacting revenge on a team of doctors that he felt killed his wife. The sequel "Dr. Phibes Rises Again" is about Dr. Phibes search for the fountain of youth he thinks will help bring his dead wife back to life. Crazy, but I like them.

    If you want to go Chinese don't eat in Chinatown that is for the Tourists and you will be charged accordingly. Go out to the avenues as this is where the REAL Chinatown is these days and where all the immigrants and native San Franciscans live. You'll get the authentic stuff there.

    Last time I was there I went out to 2nd and Clement. Some friends and I had some great Burmese and then went to an authentic Irish Pub and had a few and listen to real Irish Music..all within walking distance of each other.
