Around the Horn Wednesday

Los Angeles City Council is in RECESS. Not much shakin' in the committees, either.

~~~

Down the road a bit, the Government's trial against the Aryan Brotherhood began yesterday. MayorSam stands to lose a couple of key commenters, I think. It's not known whether or not Archie Bunker is implicated.

~~~

The City of Gardena, not a budgeting model, sidesteps bankruptcy, the Daily Breeze reports, by refinancing its considerable debt:

Eliminating the embarrassing prospect of declaring bankruptcy, the city of Gardena has renegotiated the terms of its crushing $25.5 million debt with two banks, city officials announced Tuesday.

The banks in question are Union Bank, which does a lot of municipality banking business in California, and Sumitomo. The problems arose from dumb municipally-owned insurance program coupled with a home-buyer program. The City still offers low income housing assistance.

~~~

Chris Arellano speaks to the Times:
"The race has now changed into questions about me, my past and the things I have done. If I stayed in, that would have continued and that's not why I wanted to run."

Undiscussed in the race since Adolfo Guzman Lopez's report on Chris have been kids, bonds, $172 million dollar pricetags for schools, etc.

Monica Garcia also talks to the Times:
"No doubt I would have liked it to be over. I think the voters made a strong statement," she said. "I would welcome the chance to go to work for the families of this district immediately. We don't have a day to waste, let alone three months."

Monica got 4% of the District's electorate.

The UTLA's AJ Duffy continues to waive the white flag:
"I can't speak for my members," he said. "But my gut feeling is that we will not get back into this race."

That's twice now in the past eighteen hours that the Union head has said he couldn't speak for his members, just before speaking for them.

La Opinion's piece relies mostly on yesterday's LAWeekly site posting. The article notes trying to contact the Arellano campaign by telephone and failing. Not a surprise.

Blogdowntown is surprised to find that the AON garage is---a garage.


Also: As usual, a soothsayer bids you beware the Ides of March. But if you simply beware men in sandals, you should be OK today.

Monica wants to go do what Antonio wants her to do and doesn't care about the students or family.

I want Chick-n-Shit to show us where the LAUSD money was spent. Why hasn't she released the figures???? I want to know how much Jose and his gang spent on furniture, bathrooms, contractors etc. I want to know how much money was spent on land deals and who got those land deals. C'mon Chick-n-shit do your job right and not how Antonio is telling you to do it.

AJ has been a piss poor President of the UTLA. He promised us the world and delivered nothing.

His views do not represent the membership.

Long Time UTLAer

Poor Eric Garcetti - on the losing side once again. 2003: supports Pacheco against Antonio; 2005: supports Hahn against Antonio; 2006: supports felon and liar Arellano.

The Arellano scandal certainly puts egg on the face of Garcetti, Jackie Goldberg, AJ Duffy, Heather Repulsive and the rest of the Arellano Apologistas.

Bad judgement by all of them in supporting this sociopath.

Apparently Mexico is about to export its air pollution to California by truck. Here's the story on how California will not be allowed to apply its emissions standards to Mexican trucks crossing the so-called "border:"

Even as the UTLA's handpicked moron Arellano's Hindenburg campaign goes down in flames like the hot air filled disaster that it was, Arellano's website CONTINUES to trumpet the VERY LIES that sent it down in the first place:
"He is a longtime resident of the district who struggled to earn a Masters of Social Work and a Public Planning degree from USC."

No apology, no remorse, no explanation. Should this classic pathological liar ever try to scam the unsuspecting public agaiun, with or without the UTLA, pk will be there to let youse bozos know the real deal. In the meantime, the literary masterpiece that brought this fool down stands for your sensual delight as a testament to the power of plain old girls and boys telling some power mad fools...."Oh NOOO, honey...I don't THINK SO!!!"

Gee you would think all the
Antonio lovers and Monica Garcia, Huizar and the rest of the groupies would be happy about Arellano. They still sound nervous and running scared because why else would you waste your time posting still negative crap on here. Garcetti is a great council member. There are tons of people who didn't support or vote for Antonio and guess what???? We're all laughing right now cause your little midget hasn't done a damn thing since being in office.

The only audits the school boards need are on performance not on how money is being spent.

Garcetti may be a good councilman, but he's got lousy political instincts.

Let's see who he supports in the AD 45 race. That will be very telling as to whether he's learned anything from his past endorsement mistakes or not.

Garcetti is soley motivated by political stragegy (e.g., his Navy reserve duty) and has not heart and no instincts.


I guess Gil didn't include common sense in the silver spoon he used with Lil Eric.

Garcetti is a good person yes, but not a good politicain. He lacks intestinal fortitude and insight into the communities he supposedly represents. I lost a good friend to gang wars in our part of town, and where is Eric. He still patting around town not doing jack-s-hit in our part of town. I met the man, a real example of a man, but for the political side, he stinks.

Yeah, about as "clean" as a three day old diaper. The fucka LIED until he couldnt lie anymore, and then whines about his "terrible mistake." Puhleeze.

"Good for him not pointing fingers as to where all the dirt thrown at him came from."

If Liarboy wants to point fingers, he should hop over to the nearest mirror and do so. The dirt came out of his own mouth. And his LIES are still posted on his website!!
But thanks for dropping in to kiss his ass...hope you enjoyed that tasty Chris SHIT SANDWICH!!

I read no apology from Arellano in the Times article for lying to those who unwittingly supported him.

He deceived UTLA, Jackie Goldberg, Eric Garcetti. And, he was so brazen as to look Eric Bauman right in the eye and say there were no other skeletons in his closet before the revelations about his lies about his educational background.

Arellano is a con man, pure and simple. And, he duped a lot of good people along the way.

Chris Arellano could be related to Fred Brito. Just think, had he won, he'd be no different than any other politician in City Hall.
Hell, he could even get a coaching job at the University of Notre Dame (until they found out he lied on his resume)

This line pops up a lot: "And, he was so brazen as to look Eric Bauman right in the eye and say there were no other skeletons in his closet before the revelations about his lies about his educational background."

Like Eric Bauman is somesort of gauge of all that is stand-uppish and moral in Democratic Party politics? Bauman would sell his mom in porn for a political appointment.

A moral tale for Arellano - although Turkey Arellano got only to the 2nd branch:

A turkey was chatting with a bull.
"I would love to be able to Get to the top of that tree, " sighed the Turkey, but I haven't got the energy."

"Well, why don't you nibble on my droppings? " replied the bull.
They're Packed with nutrients. "

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.

The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.

Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of The tree.

Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

Moral of the story: Bullsh├Čt might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

What a bunch of hypocrits these Chris bashers/Tony lovers. I'm no fan of Chris but he is sure getting a raw deal. Certainly not the deal afforded Tony the Liar. Chris lied about his shoplifting, Tony lied about the La Fonda stabbing and the Venice Room incident - two very different crimes. Chris lied about his education, Tony the Liar has been li]ying about his education since day 1. Tony says he got kicked out of Cathedral High because he didn't finger his friends during a "race fight" with white students from St. Francis High - Tony got kicked out for dealing drugs.

Maybe if Chris weren't gay, he'd be just like Tony the Liar and he would catch all the breaks.

Between Chris and Tony the Liar, what little integrity they possess, Chris still has more.

Oh puhleeze. When Chris was perfecting his con not that long ago before he decided to make a play for the BIG CON, who do you think he was scamming. G-g-g-g-g-ay people. You Chrisophiles crack me dafuk up with your "whu you picking on Chriiiiiisss...everybody's a crook" bullshit. You all have the moral compass of a school of pirahnas.
