Posted on 05/03/2012 3:30:24 PM PDT by SmithL
To the folks at Weston Wear, it was like getting salt rubbed in their wound.
The day after a marauding band of Occupy protestors smashed the Valencia Street clothing stores windows, the owners got another jolt a city citation notice for having graffiti on the plywood they had put up over the vandalized windows.
It was just a head scratcher to us, said Bridget Moore, the store manager. It seemed there was no thought why we had a bunch of plywood up.
The stores four windows were smashed in the Monday night protest ostensibly held over income inequality and Weston Wear had them boarded up later that night. The next morning, Moore said, she discovered a small graffiti tag on the plywood.
. . .
Moore said that Tuesday afternoon, less than 24 hours after the protest turned violent, she found a city notice of citation taped on the plywood saying they had 30 days to remove the graffiti or face an escalating $500 fine.

Weston Wear should know the way to San Jose.
Any really concerned store owners need to move out of that craphole called Oakland. Whining gets no sympathy from me.
Why anyone continues to try and do business in San Francisco these days is beyond me.
Well my house got broken into today and I have to get a permit before replacing the front door, should have the permit in two weeks.
I don’t know how plainer the city can make it to the business owners, that they are not wanted.
Time to move.
Yeah, they oughta move to San Franciusco.
Just another reason why California has been rated as the worst state to do business for the 8th year in a row.
There is nothing the state or local gov’ts do to encourage businesses. Unbelievable!
Those at Weston Wear need to generate a game plan and defend their rights to live and prosper and change what comes out of the San Fransisco government or get the hell out of bizzaro land and move somewhere sane and be happy forever after.
[ Well my house got broken into today and I have to get a permit before replacing the front door, should have the permit in two weeks. ]
Seriously? You need a permit to replace broken property? Where the hell do you live? Nazi germany?
I sughgest the following replacement: http://www.homedepot.com/Doors-Windows-Security-Doors/h_d1/N-5yc1vZbvpt/R-202327072/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&storeId=10051&superSkuId=202933680
They look pretty nice and unlike a screen door you can have it locked while you sleep and door behind it open to aloow cool air to flow in without compromising security.

Disagree: Time to go Galt!
Well, you don't expect them to survive on the scraps they get via taxes do you?
I'm about a dozen posts late.
Tampa Florida. Have a new door all picked out.
There is simply something really weird and unhealthy living in a place where it neither snows or freezes. May be good for fruits and nuts but not so good for the long term mental health of Europeans whose brains evolved in cold dark climates. California is one strange place.
They’ll find freedom & prosperity in San Antonio that they couldn’t even imagine in San Jose.
that’s life in pelosi-ville.
And the difference is?
How does the city/town even know about it to require a permit? The police report is followed up by the city/town?
Nice how we all have quietly become wards of the state and criminals if we take care of ourselves...
Maybe someday the big quake will come and California will slip into the sea never to be heard from again.
Keep in mind, FR’s servers and owner(s?) are in CA.. So may islands remain for them ;)
[ And the difference is? ]
The feeling of satifaction from “going galt” as opposed to scurrying to a new location????

They may want to move now that they have wrecked the place. Stay out of Texas. Stew in the utopia you have unleashed upon your own heads.
Well I could probably install it myself without a permit. However, I can’t hire someone licensed to install it without a permit.
Since I want it installed correctly I’m going for someone who knows how to do it. I’ve tried hanging an entry door before, not gonna go there again.
Hey before you do that.....
For reasons we wont discuss here, my local Sheriff’s department busted my front door in with a battering ram years ago. Shortly thereafter I moved (crooked cops suck, this one was eventually caught). The frony door had a huge dent in it so I was running around measuring and shopping for a door.
My neighbor had a brilliant idea. The door was steel on the outside, so i went to Auto Zone and got 15 bucks worth of Bondo and hardener. 1 hour later, with the exception of the faux grain on the door that wasnt in the bondo, I had a perfect door....
Never been to California have you? It gets down to -40 below here in the eastern part of the state some winters and we generally have the highest snowfall in the U.S. every year.
I tend to agree. Liberals move from place to place destroying cultures in their wake like a bunch of locusts. Texas is growing fast enough.
Gotta worry about Hurricane Obama ripping all the conservative servers out Nationwide after November. Meanwhile we here at FreeRepublic declare our intentions to not vote or vote third party...I see bad things on the horizon.
The government motto is never pass up an opportunity to steal some money under color of law.
One of my kids is actively working to head East out of the CA NIRVANA prior to dropping a Gradkid.
Cool pic of the LA Great Wall.
Inland CA rocks.
Well then-—there’s only one thing left to do for SF’ins to fix that mess. Keep voting DemoRat ad infinitum.
Yes it does!
It is amazing, isn’t it?

Funny thing about San Jose. Every Cinco de Mayo the mobs in the downtown used to go around throwing bricks and rocks through windows. Our business was in the Fairmont Hotel in downtown San Jose. Yes, the little bastards threw bricks through our windows destroying the finish on a $60,000 Bosendorfer piano. Glad we got out of there fourteen years ago.
Can’t even imagine what it is like there now.
I guess Dionne Warwick hit song is very outdated now.
No shit! LOL
Don’t confused the monkey’s...........
Sorry about the triple poat. I’m in a theater about to see Avengers
There is something really strange about a guy who knows nothing about CA and it's weather making stupid remarks on FR. Yes, there are some weird people here and lots of useless low life politicians, there are also many good people still living here.
Not only does it snow here in CA, depending on what part you happen to be in at the time, it also freezes, has up to 80 MPH winds, the occasional tornado, many fires and lots of mudslides and rain.
The conservatives live mostly in the NE portion, all those counties are blue but we are outnumbered by the population centers such as SF, Oakland and LA, not to mention Sacramento. All those illegals vote democrat and that is the problem here. Too many socialist and communist in office.
Remember FR is based in CA.
You forgot to mention we get some of the hottest weather in the country as well. I also remember witnessing tornados and funnel clouds in the Central Valley one winter.
FReepers like to inslut California, and heaven knows the state deserves it, but you same FReepers need to understand that there are still lots of conservatives here who refuse to run away. I choose to be politically active and fight for my state. It is my home. My guess is that the ratio of Democtrats to Republicans is maybe 60/40. That’s ~13,000,000 republicans more or less.
Without this state you would not have Free Republic or had President Reagan.
Funny also, how if you scratch these leftist wackjobs in California, you find most of them are from out of state anyway. I tell those people to go home and mess up their own states.
