Costly self-abnegation

One of the ironies of the 21st century is that many people are too poor to be Woke. Some would if they could afford it. With nearly 85% of voters registered Democratic, San Francisco is arguably one of the bluest cities in America. But only a few people can afford to live there. “The California Association of Realtors (CAR) released its most recent Housing Affordability Index this week and estimated that only 12 percent of San Francisco households could afford a median-priced single family home in the city at the end of 2017, the worst rating in the state.”

San Francisco is losing more residents than any other city in the US, so many in fact there’s a shortage of U-Hauls leaving town. “It costs $US2,000 to rent a truck from San Jose to Las Vegas – but only costs $US100 the other way around, according to local news reporter Michelle Robertson from SFGate.”

    The person who came up with Woke, like the one who came up with Nothing Burger should have been drowned at birth.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
