When we look at outcomes,why is it that the Marxist/Socialists always come out as a destructive force instead of having a success that raise up the Social milieu. Just remember fools, you voted for this.

Want to bet that the funds for upkeep and repairs was squandered on some social program for illegals. Democrats have run the place since Fiorello La Guardia was mayor.

Subway station ceiling tile crumbles

 The Borough Hall subway station in Brooklyn is more than 100 years old and is known to have water problems. That issue led to a ceiling collapse on Wednesday.

A 10-feet-by-10-feet section of ceiling tile came crashing down onto the 4/5 subway platform. Luckily, only one rider suffered a minor injury to the arm and didn’t require medical attention.

New York City Transit President Andy Byford responded to the scene and encouraged the transit workers who banged away at the ceiling to make sure any other loose pieces came down. He said that crews believe that water that leaked into the ceiling and loosened the tile. [snip]

The grumble of New Yorkers won’t be happy to hear what they probably already know: that this isn’t an isolated incident. All one needs do is look around to see that the infrastructure is crumbling. [snip]

The Fast Forward plan calls for 150 station renovations over the next five years and another 150 in the five years after that. Whether it has the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who runs the MTA, is unclear.

Subway service was restored by the end of the evening rush hour.

But the problem of the aging infrastructure will persist.

NYC’s infrastructure is deteriorating faster than the maintenance programs can process. Raising taxes won’t solve the problem; the city needs a serious reallocation of tax dollars.

First the East Coast, now to the Left Coast Socialism turns society on it’s head. Can anyone explain how this benefits the Country.

Neighbors Concerned About Fights At Homeless Encampment

HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA) — A violent fight at a homeless camp in Hollywood was caught on camera. Residents say it happens all the time and they are fed up and fighting back.

As CBSLA’s Tom Wait reports, the video of the fight was recorded by a frustrated neighbor late at night. We’re told the two people going at it live or hang out in an encampment just outside of Poinsettia Park, near Hollywood.

The video is one of several sent to us by residents in the area. Last month there was another fight at the same encampment. Exasperated neighbors have called the city and LA City Councilman Paul Koretz’s office who represents the area but so far no action to remove the tents has happened.

Neighbors say they do not want to come off as insensitive to the problems of the homeless but they also say the encampment is not just a nuisance — it’s a safety issue.

“I’ve seen people in the streets yelling at cars. Kids playing. Running across the street. No one really wants to walk down the street,” said neighbor Brian Bickerstaff.

“It’s like that everywhere. Like anywhere it’s a big number of homeless people,” said neighbor Chris Fisher. [snip]

Thank the progressives. California is a craphole bought and paid for with taxpayer dollars. Since these are potential voters for the Left, be assured they won’t be chased away.

Ponder this

In general, the art of government consists of taking as much money as possible from one class of citizens to give to another.

Idiot’s Corner

It’s a wonder the Left Coast doesn’t slide into the water from the weight of the stupidity of the politicians.

Democratic lawmakers on Tuesday advanced a proposal that would restrict the circumstances under which California police officers could use deadly force. Senator Steven Bradford gives his views on the bill he is co-authoring,

Police say no deal on California bill to restrict their use of force

Law enforcement organizations are unlikely to compromise with advocates of a proposal this session to restrict the circumstances under which police officers could use deadly force.

Their staunch opposition significantly diminishes the prospects for Assembly Bill 931, which would increase the state standard for lethal use of force from “reasonable” to “necessary,” to become law. Though the measure on Tuesday passed its first policy committee, it faces a lengthy and complicated path ahead in a Legislature historically hesitant to cross law enforcement.
