Is San Francisco’s Collapse a Warning for Our Future?

by Newt Gingrich

San Francisco is clearly in a period of dramatic decline.

When the city has to hire a “poop patrol” to find and remove human feces from the streets, there is something clearly wrong. In addition to dealing with the filth, taxpayers must dole out an estimated $184,000 per year for each patroller, according to Business Insider. 

Nordstrom announced its flagship San Francisco store is closing after 35 years in the city’s downtown. It is following brands such as Saks Off 5th, Anthropologie, Coco Republic, and Whole Foods Market. At least 17 stores have left the Union Square area.
