San Fransico. Where the hippie movement took hold. Land of Pelosi and Feinstein. Where you have the right to walk around in public neckid…as long as you don’t touch your privates. Home of the homosexual elites. And the home of the Golden Gate Bridge. An engineering marvel in its own right with blood all over its soul. That’s right; it kills people on a regular basis, just by existing. But help is on the way. The board has approved a 76 million dollar net (50 million paid by us) to stop the suicides. A board member was heard saying that “..if the net saves but one life, then it was worth the cost”. I don’t know about all that.
Now the article talks about those being caught trying to jump, for the most part, decide not to try suicide again. Really? Were they given over to mental health institutions and cured? And this cop talks about as soon as they climb to the other side of the 4 foot barrier, it is like having a gun to their head that is cocked and ready to pull the trigger. Why would he say that? Since California has such onerous gun laws, why not make onerous bridge laws? Why a gun and not a bottle of pills? Or a noose? Who really cares. The bottom line is, you will not be able to come from all over the world and commit suicide (with a scenic view when the fog is in) from this wonderful bridge anymore…..unless you really try….with all your heart and soul. It just means that suicides will happen more in the bathroom, or bedroom, or roadway, or backyard tree, or skyscraper, or ocean and river, or any place else.
Another good thing about this net is that if there are 75 million tax payers in the U.S., my share is only 66 cents. I would rather save babies than nutjobs in SF with my money but I guess it is better than having to support sex change operations for misguided homosexual mental defectives. Oh, forgot, Obamacare is already doing that. Well, thee are still 2 years for these screwed up homosexuals to take the leap from the bridge if they so desire. 76 million dollars for a net on a bridge. How much for a net to cover the city? And how much more would it take to build the wall on the border? What a screwy America we live in. Oops. Just had a thought. Will this net be Constitutional, since it will take away an individuals’ freedom of expression? Time will tell.
