I was in Portland OR when they first put the NO SIT NO LIE law into effect, and then by chance I was also there when they deemed it UNCONSTITUTIONAL...

I travel with a chair. I have trouble getting up and down from the sidewalk anyways. Does anyone know if a chair is ok? what about busking?

Another question: this isn't fucking with Berkley is it?

I haven't been to Cali since 2009. I am going to be there this summer though. WTF.

I think you'll fine with the chair. I've used little stools and shit to get around sit/lies in a buncha cities. Police seem to respect buskers with chairs, its weird. Another good trick is to stash your pack while busking and you're a lot less likely to get fucked with.

As a haight kid this really pisses me off. I hardly ever spend time there anymore but the park seemed like home to me for years. I really hope we can beat this like we did in portland. I feel bad for all you people who rank on SF, you missed out on one of the best cities in america.

I pretty much just keep telling myself "this too will pass." Some of the cops hate us, but a lot of them like us believe it or not. They don't wanna waste time doing this shit, eventually the mayor will be off the haight and people won't wanna pay the cops just to drive around the park on a dirt bike all day harassing travelers. Watch out for that guitar playing cop though. He's not the worst one in the world, but he does have a nasty trick involving dead songs, plain clothes and busting kids for L. Never really seen him fuck with someone for pot though.

When i was on the streets of newyork i was being harassed I was being harassed constantly flying a sign Because the cops realized the tourist were enjoying the many different crazy things i would write. its not ok for a homeless person to have a funny sign but its ok for a old man to be in a bikini with his wrinkly ass shaking and grown men in just underwear lol But i fully clothed cant ask for money for weed, Or ask for change to piss off strippers whats this world come too

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $32.77 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $32.77 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $32.77 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $32.77 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
