Isn't This The Way They're Supposed To Do It?

Sheriff Lee Baca - like all the tax addicted blowhards before him - has come hat in hand to the county asking us to hike the sales tax to pay for more police protection. Because the county and cities can't seem to stop spending money on things like restaurant television shows, hospitals that kill people and crap like LA Cultural Affairs.

But at least one bright spot in the form of the Councilwoman from my home - Wendy Greuel comes somewhat to the rescue. According to the Daily News, Wendy will propose - imagine this - that fatcats tighten their belts and put that money into the LAPD!

Greuel, with support from City Council President Alex Padilla, will introduce a resolution today to promote efficiencies in city government and use half of any cost savings to hire new police officers.

I hope the other idiots see the wisdom in this. What a concept! Along with the hidden $340 million Zev and the county idiots found, maybe Sheriff Lee won't need his tax increase. And especially something as destructive as a sales tax increase which not only drives business & commerce out of the city but disproportionately hurts the poor.

Go Wendy!

-Mayor Sam
