Seems to be working well for China.

The answer to 90% of the worlds problems is people taking care of their damn selves and families.

I do however feel that the reason people spray paint on buildings is because there is no outlet for their artistic desires. I think we as a city should provide designated buildings/floors/canvases for those who want to express themselves in spray paint art. Said buildings could be city owned and not in use currently and that would provide a good place for artists to express themselves and would also possibly jump start a new art district in the city. And that would be a great thing!
I suggest you clean the California smog off your glasses.

No outlet for their artistic desires?? Umm, no, that's called gangsta wanna-bees marking their territory....like a feral cat. Has nothing to do with someone wanting to "express themselves". Get a clue, son.

Charge "city fees" to all of the churches to make them pay up for city services that they use.
Scatter them out of town into the surrounding cities and let people in San Antonio think for themselves.

I don't know if I'd say that about China. They are a great place to be right now in everything from business to happiness levels. Anyways, my "baby" comment was tongue in cheek.

Wrong. Moderator cut: see comment

I am from San Francisco and would love to see San Antonio progress into a more accepting and comforting society. We need to empower minority owned and operated businesses and become more diverse as a city.

We need to encourage and promote all lifestyles.

San Antonio has potential. We just need to progress one day at a time.
Where in the Bible that the only sin is hanging on? Also I get the feeling SF is not open minded towards conservatives, either fiscally or socially, the military, and Bible-believing Christians.

As far as SA, I'd love policies that help us move us towards a more laissez faire traditional liberal economic view, less taxes and regulations that allow people to keep what they earn, pursue happiness, and be charitable as they see fit to causes they see fit while protecting the rights of those unable to protect themselves, like unborn babies. That would be truly progressive.

And by minority do you mean White people? because they are the minority in this city.

Well, many that remain in that state do; but I have met a lot of them that escaped here because they saw how bad it has deteriorated and knew things were much better in Texas!

The difference is, they embrace all that is good about this state, and much like most of us that adopt this wonderful land as our new home, we accept and become part of it.

It's a small minority who arrogantly think that they are smarter than the rest of us and need to change us for the "better." Right, all one has to do is look at the smothering pile that is their former state to know how badly such ideas end up!

Not ironically, so dribble presents itself during the same week that we celebrate the Battle of the Alamo. Those who fought so devotedly for Texas would want us to do the same, and as God is my witness I will stand up against such foolish suggestions!

"Narrow-minded?!?" I don't care what some liberal bozo calls me, much like I don't care when they think they can take away my Constitutional rights such as those guaranteed by the Second Amendment. Californians can sacrifice their freedoms to a tyrannical government, if anyone tried such nonsense in Texas they'd leave the state with their tails between their legs.

ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ!
