That's because math is racist....or something.

 
Portland should be cut loose and set adrift and then sunk by a cruise missile.

Even the soy in the Mayor's body is embarrassed by him

California's Prop 47 leads to rise in shoplifting, thefts, criminal activity across state
SAN FRANCISCO – In a lighted garage on one of San Francisco's busiest streets, a young man in baggy trousers and messy brown hair pulled down his pants. He had been hiding two pairs of stolen jeans with the tags still on them. He handed them to another man waiting nearby, took some money, pulled up his pants and headed back into another store on Market Street — home to the city's high-end designers and big-chain retail shops.

The incident wasn't a one-off. These brazen acts of petty theft and shoplifting are a dangerous and all-too-common consequence of Proposition 47, a referendum passed five years ago that critics say effectively gives shoplifters and addicts the green light to commit crimes as long as the merchandise they steal or the drugs they take are less than $950 in value.

Over in the City by the Bay's famous Tenderloin district, Cassie, a 21-year-old mother of two and a former heroin junkie, told Fox News that when times were tough, she too has stolen from stores.

"If my babies need diapers or formula, who is going to get that for me? No one. I have to do it," she said. "They ain't out here arresting people for (shoplifting) and everyone knows it."

Proposition 47 is seen by critics as one of California's biggest blunders. Supported by the state Democratic Party and championed by the American Civil Liberties Union, the referendum was passed by a wide margin in 2014. The idea behind it was to reduce certain non-violent felonies to misdemeanors in order to free up resources for cops and prosecutors to focus on violent offenders. That meant downgrading drugs, fraud and shoplifting to misdemeanors that carry little to no jail time.
Since Proposition 47 was passed, there has been an increase in theft across the state. Cities like San Francisco have seen organized crime rings turn shoplifting into a well-organized racket involving desperate thieves and unscrupulous black-market resellers.

Among the nation's 20 largest cities, San Francisco now has the highest rate of property crime, which includes theft, shoplifting and vandalism.

Del Seymour, founder of the non-profit Code Tenderloin, told Fox News that fencers – often from Mexico and Guatemala – set up shop in the middle of the day and night around the city's United Nations Plaza area. He said he's also noticed that the stealers and dealers have gotten bolder by the day, The retail heists taking place, he said, aren't some small-time operation but instead a sophisticated network of international dealers who cross the border to buy stolen goods. What's worse is that a majority of the handoffs happen in view of San Francisco's City Hall.
Seymour believes San Francisco is stuck in a cycle and, until it's able to pull itself out, the problem will continue. Drug addicts, who are often homeless, need money for a fix so they walk into a store, steal merchandise, sell it for half the value and use the money they made to buy more drugs. Seymour added that the mayor and elected city officials have been spending too much time and money trying to coddle addicts and have done nothing to eliminate San Francisco's drug problem.

"My thing is – and I tell them this all the time – if we end the fencing, prosecute the fencing or do something with the fencing, people won't have money to buy the drugs," he said. "Most of the drugs bought are from shoplifting and breaking into cars. If they don't have a market for those goods, they won't break into cars or (shoplift) anymore."

I wonder how many of these fencers are Illegals protected by SF's sanctuary laws.

Seriously, would anyone shed a tear at this point if the big one hit?

in Cali, giving people a puddle of AIDs intentionally is also a slap on the wrist. With the progressive leadership and the state as it is, I'd rather live in the Amazon jungle. As far as I know, Amazonian tribes have to deal with Bubonic plague, typhus and homeless people shitting mountains of feces right outside their hut.
FFS Typhus is what the remnants of the surrounded 6th army suffered from in Stalingrad. That's how bad Cali is now

Battle Ground sex ed decision could be test case for next legislative sessionTrending
Open house on health curriculum legislation canceled amid safety concerns

BATTLE GROUND — Faced with the opportunity to adopt medically up-to-date sexual health education curriculum, Battle Ground Public Schools instead took a step back.
The north Clark County school district’s board of directors two weeks ago decided by a 3-2 vote that sex education will not be taught if it’s not required by state law, except for lessons on puberty taught in fifth grade.
“I have not heard of anyone else who has gone backward like that,” said Laurie Dils, supervisor of the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction’s sexual health education office.
The decision made Battle Ground a test case for the political football comprehensive sexual health education could become in the upcoming legislative session, which starts Jan. 13. Some state legislators, including Rep. Monica Stonier, D-Vancouver, hope to see scientifically accurate and consent-focused sexual health education mandated across Washington.




But opponents, including Patriot Prayer leader Joey Gibson, are fighting further attempts to put comprehensive sexual health education in place. Gibson and a small group opposed to the curriculum appeared Monday night at a Planned Parenthood Votes workshop at the Battle Ground Community Library.
The political action committee previously scheduled an open house to discuss upcoming work in Olympia on sexual health education requirements but moved it due to perceived security risks upon learning of intended protests at the event.
A question of equity
Stonier and Rep. Sharon Tomiko Santos, D-Seattle and chair of the House Education Committee, introduced a bill earlier this year that would mandate comprehensive sexual health education to all students by the 2022-2023 school year. Washington is one of 21 states that does not mandate sexual health education, according to the Guttmacher Institute. While there are standards and expectations for what is taught when a district chooses to offer sexual health education, individual districts, such as Battle Ground, can decide not to offer the lessons at all.
Under the proposed legislation, all districts will be required to adopt accurate, age-appropriate, inclusive curriculum that includes lessons on multiple forms of contraception, including abstinence. The curriculum must also teach affirmative consent, defined in the bill as a “conscious and voluntary agreement” to engage in sexual activity. Parents will be able to opt their children out of the curriculum, just as they can now.




“We’ve seen the statistics and the data,” Stonier said. “Kids having access to scientifically appropriate sex ed actually reduces risky behaviors.”
A similar bill passed out of the Senate along party lines last session but fizzled out after Santos failed to schedule it for a vote on the floor. Santos said the original bill didn’t give communities adequate time to prepare families and school staff for the changes.
It appears this bill could attract bipartisan support. Rep. Paul Harris, R-Vancouver, said he’s likely to vote “yes” on some version of the bill.
“Kids need to understand personal consent,” Harris said.
The effort, and Battle Ground’s vote, has caught the attention of Planned Parenthood Votes, the political arm of the reproductive health organization.





“We don’t believe the level of information you have for your sexual health and to have healthy relationships should be dependent on what school districts you grow up in,” said Courtney Normand, Washington state director for Planned Parenthood Votes.
Dils, with the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, described the availability of sexual health education as an equity issue.
“Where somebody lives shouldn’t affect the accessibility of medically accurate sexual health information,” she said. “It protects student health.”
Opposition remains
Still, those who oppose comprehensive sexual health education, such as Rep. Vicki Kraft, R-Vancouver, vow to fight the legislation.







Battle Ground school board meetings have attracted dozens of outspoken critics of the proposed curriculum for the last year. Tina Lambert, who first recommended changes to the district’s sexual health education policy, noted that opposition is why she voted against the curriculum.
“With the community being so polarized on the issue, I didn’t feel comfortable going forward,” Lambert said.
Kraft has been particularly critical of Family Life and Sexual Health, or FLASH, a widely used curriculum developed by Public Health — Seattle & King County. FLASH includes a series of lessons on anatomy, consent, maintaining healthy relationships and birth control methods, including abstinence. Kraft has claimed the curriculum also contains explicit information on how to have sex.
That’s a talking point echoed by Gibson, who criticized Planned Parenthood Votes’ advocacy for comprehensive sex education.



“I want to know why it’s so important for them to push sex ed on kids,” Gibson said. “I think it should be left up to the people.”
Normand called assertions that the curriculum teaches students how to have sex “ridiculous and damaging,” saying programs like FLASH give students the information they need to make safe choices whether they have sex or not.
“It really takes away from the conversation we ought to be having, which is ‘Do young people have what they need to make healthy decisions?'” Normand said.
Troy McCoy, president of Battle Ground Public Schools Board of Directors and an outspoken supporter of the comprehensive sexual health education curriculum, voted against changing the district policy. McCoy said while he has to respect the will of the board, he understands how the decision can come across to an outsider as “narrow-minded.”







“My concern is for the health and safety and wellness of the students we’re serving, that we’re supposed to protect,” he said.
In the meantime, McCoy is optimistic about what changes the state might make. He’s disappointed, however, that the Battle Ground school district was a casualty in the politics of sexual health education.
“It’s sad to me that Battle Ground became a battle ground,” he said.

Well there is a bunch of nasty shit that follows the fecal oral route so don't be surprised if something else nasty shows up:

Diseases
The list below shows the main diseases that can be passed via the fecal–oral route. They are grouped by the type of pathogen involved in disease transmission.

Bacteria

Protozoans
Helminths


Hmm I wonder if these antivaxers are at least vaccinating for Polio... prob not. Hmmm might want to invest in iron lung futures.

How many virtue signalling millionaires and billionaires (who constantly talk about social justice) live in Cali? If they had a small whip-around they could raise enough cash to solve it overnight, yet all they do is let their arses leak all over twitter about orange man bad

Remember with shit, garbage, rotting food aka harborage what else do you get... rats which carry fleas which in turn may carry the plague... and I am not kidding. They let this shit cook for long enough especially with a population with a depressed immune system (drug addicts) just rife for it to happen.

Absolutely, things is though, the libtards in Cali only care about immigrants before they cross the border, once they cross the border, libtards are fine with them living in those conditions in Cali, a state that has a cow fart tax (WTF?!).

No one cares about homeless immigrants already within the borders, they (Libtards and the media) only care about the ones at the border throwing rocks at border guards.
