Wacko Jacko Strikes Again

Anybody catch Wednesday's Council Session? Seems that some members are getting a bit testy. One in particular is the target today. He goes by Jack Weiss.

Tuesday's meeting brought on a full on pissing match between him and Janice Hahn. They were discussing LAPD overtime at the airport
and Weiss said something about how the LAPD should take over, that it's a proven fact they are the only ones who could appropriatley respond to an attack "when" it happens. He was going off about that issue - which is his favorite - and then Janice Hahn took the mic.

"You know Jack, I don't know why you have to keep harping on this issue. You lost when this issue came to council, and you lost when this issue went before the voters. It's been proven that the airport police are the most qualified so it's time to move on..."

Then Weiss got back on the mic. "Yes Ms. Hahn - and that's what I'll call her - Ms. HAHN - you need to not take things so personal. I'm not concerned about feelings, I'm concerned about public safety" blah blah blah

To which Hahn gets back on stating, "Jack - you know what with ME it is PERSONAL, it's all personal" blah blah blah

Then, there was the Reyes/Smith exchange....They were honoring LaBonge's COS Kathy Irish when Ed Reyes pushes his button. He stands up and says "I know that some of my colleauges want to take away presentations, but I think it's important to honor people such as yourself who have served the city for so long..."

Then Greig Smith presses his button, stands up and says "Umm yes, I think that Mr. Reyes is refering to me, and usually I wouldn't stand up, but this time I feel compelled to say something"

Then Weiss and Smith start talking to each other as Padilla is asking what items the councilmembers would like called special. Weiss is so busy talking that he misses his item.

Then Weiss starts yelling "did everyone see what Padilla tried to do? He tried to pull a fast one so that I couldn't call my motion special!!!"

Jack -- Get a fucking clue. Pay attention. Do your job. Shut your trap. And pull your head out of the Mayor's ass.

Attagirl, Janice Hahn intellectually kick Jack Weiss in the nuts.

What's funny about this whole situation is that a almost a year ago when the city was discussing a sales tax for local police and Jack Weiss did the same thing to Janice Hahn.

Payback is a bitch!

I saw Eric Garcetti all by himself in the housing committee yesterday. No drama there. Just a room full of staffers and interested parties, and one councilman keeping the whole thing going. Where were Bernard Parks and Ed Reyes?

Eric should be in Washington with the big boys instead of these council babies. Reyes is another idiot! You can't trust him at his word and he flip flops as badly as Zine. He's lost a lot of clout and is another kiss butt to AV

Do you really think Eric Garcetti should be in congress?

Whose seat would he run for?

Jack... you really need to get a life and a clue. The Airport Police and LAPD will both freak out if there is a terrorist attack at LAX. Having 22 LAPD Officers at LAX won't stop a terrorist attack. Stop trying to be "Rico Suave" hanging out with Antonio. You don't have the looks or the charisma. Pay attention to the issues that are presented in Council instead of grandstanding for another position! The City of Los Angeles Police Officers and constituents deserve better from you.

Gotta hand it to Janice. She's not afraid to mouth off to the idiots that sit around the horse shoe including lame Antonio as she did during campaign when he stood up to grand stand and defend himself for not voting for a citywide tax to get more cops. His constituents stormed city hall after voting 70% for a countywide tax to get more cops that little midget totally ignored them and voted NO. If it was anyone other than Hahn who suggested the city tax you better believe Antonio would have voted YES. AV let politics get in the way of his little ego. the hell with what the people wanted.

Janice Hahn is nothing more than a loud mouth with nothing particularly interesting to say.

Actually, for the record, it was a Tony Cardenas motion to section 245 a Board of Airport Commissioners decision. It would take 10 votes for the Council to assert jurisdiction and there were only 10 members present, so Alex tried to slip it by so nobody would vote against it. It was back on the agenda after being voted down 5-6 the day before.

Jack was actually the only one paying enough attention to notice what Alex was trying to do. While he does some stupid shit sometimes, he was on the ball this time

A battle between mental giants - Jack Weiss & Janice Hahn. Tweedle dee and tweedle dumb, both losers, both wrapping up their petty inconsequential political careers.

Anyone who thinks Eric Garcetti is a good politician is a fucking idiot. He's a weak, back-stabbing whiteboy from Encino trying to pose as a Latino from Echo Park. Get a fucking clue.

Jack, if you were quoted accurately here, then it's "personally", not "personal". Learn to speak English. Oh, wait, this is L.A. - nevermind.
