Yep, you read that right. San Fransisco Bay is being raided by pirates. Our government can’t even deal with an issue that was settled on this continent over a century ago.

It’s as if the entity running the simulation that we are living in have tired of Orwell and have moved on to Rand for the dystopian phase of the game.

What author comes next? Please tell me it isn’t Lovecraft or Alighieri.

Rome fell from within long before the visigoths reached the city’s walls.

‘A State of Disobedience’ by Tom Kratman is my SWAG.

Just sounds like every day life has come to pop the delusion bubble on the waterfront — NOT “Piracy”. Marina owners tend to be the real “pirates” because of the costs they charge for ANYTHING.

    I’m thinking this is more watercraft targetet burglary than any true form of piracy – at least until we hear of armed boarding of occupied boats, but I suspect we aren’t far from it.
    I agree with you on costs – reasonable Marina’s, or anything near water, has gone the way of the dodo.
    Of course people are finding options other than paying outrageous fees! They’re doing it on the streets too, and the cops use it as an excuse to generate money there also.

Cool! If I were out there it’d be a cutlass, eyepatch and tri-corn with a blackpowder 60cal pistol to hold off the boarders!

Locals “forming groups and arming themselves”.

Cue Committees Of Vigilance in 3, 2, …

History doesn’t repeat, but it rhymes.

Well, they already had an outsize number of butt pirates out that way. I guess this is just a natural progression of the descent into hell. I just gotta laugh, what the hell else am I supposed to do now?

    Aesop · September 2, 2023 at 2:46 am

    I meant to mention the decades-long epidemic (see what I did there?) of San Franshitscan butt piracy as well.

    I guess we aren’t counting that outbreak?
    That should count as giving AIDS and comfort to the enemy.

    And anyways, this is in Oakland. After hosting the Raiders twice, for 47 years, they really haven’t got any grounds for complaint.

    Cheer? Buy popcorn? Invest in popcorn stocks? Plant a popcorn garden?
    I am.

“What author comes next? Please tell me it isn’t Lovecraft or Alighieri.”

How do you know we’re not there already, and this is just a game those beings are playing?

Hmmmmm. Perhaps I WASN’T born “200 years too late”.

The next author is Douglas Adams:

There’s no point in acting surprised about it. All the planning charts and demolition orders have been on display at your local planning department in Alpha Centauri for 50 of your Earth years, so you’ve had plenty of time to lodge any formal complaint and it’s far too late to start making a fuss about it now. … What do you mean you’ve never been to Alpha Centauri? Oh, for heaven’s sake, mankind, it’s only four light years away, you know. I’m sorry, but if you can’t be bothered to take an interest in local affairs, that’s your own lookout. Energize the demolition beams.

It’s Oakland. So nothing new. Those robberies have been going on for decades. Last time it got really bad around there was in the early 1990’s before Three Strikes was passed. The county DA is a BLM nutcase who refuses to prosecute any crimes committed by “her people”. Before getting elected she was a lawyer who worked defense mostly for gang members. So its been South Side Chicago levels of crime recently. Daily shootings. The recall election process has already started so she should be kicked out sooner rather than later.

I have met some californians who have the deep one taint.

It sounds like Mystery Babylon Be!
They do have a lot of butt pirates in the glorious CPUSA (D) HQ west and the steaming streaming feces map is always a gut busting morale booster, kind of hard to avoid stepping in it in such a shit ridden place.
How about that glorious Fundamental Transformation, si se puede!
You can almost hear the laughter in Beijing, Moscow, Riyadh, Tehran, Pyongyang.
