From first hand experience I don't see how Houston could not be one..."day laborers" just hanging around.

No offense to anyone, but we practically beg them to come here.

Dallas is still a real city (have a job and afford a house) instead of a boutique city(where it is impossible to find a job that affords you a house). Someone wrote an article on the SFGate stating that San Franciscans are better off renting instead of buying; plus now days no-one really wants to be an owner. I was surprised to see that over 90% of the respondents went against of what the guy wrote. Nearly all of them wanted a place to call their own. That shows you that there are lots of unhappy and frustrated people living in the Bay Area. Most San Franciscans are still renting cold, tiny and outdated apts.

San Fran by a long shot. Dallas was given the "standing 8 count" .00001 seconds into the first round in this poll. lol

Moderator cut: personal attack

SF Bay Area is a great place for people in the business, law, medical, technology, engineering and architectual fields whereas you dont have to be a left-winged liberal to find an attraction to SF. Nor an illega/bum/gangbanger, but you do have to be an idiot to make such implications. The city easily attracts everyone from the senior executives to the young associates. Being in the law field, I am particularly aware that SF's legal community is tier 1 with New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, DC, as is SF's other fields. Not trying to say Dallas is weak on any particular level, but it just doesn't match up with SF's strengths.
The Bay Area also has a few great schools such as Berkeley, Stanford, UCSF and others that attracts young students everywhere

So you see, you dont have to be a liberal nut or a gangbanger/illegal/bum to live and enjoy San Francisco. But again, anyone that implies that you do is just being an idiot.

BTW, though H-Town is not a sanctuary city per se, the city's practices are still that of a sanctuary city. I havent lived there though in a cpl of years but last time I heard the city has not made any drastic changes. So you can argue that it's not all day, but if it looks like a duck, acts like a duck....

San Francisco.

Once Dallas gets a non-laughable transportation system, and starts to build up and not out, then maybe I'll consider it. The positives of San Francisco are far too great to mention, so I'll just end this post here.

I've been to San Francisco, my brother and sister-in-law live in Burlingame.
It is a cool city and it certainly is in a beautiful setting but I just do not see what all the hype is.
It is small, congested, and is a national magnet for freaks.
It is progressiveness run amok.
