LAUSD Bill: Failure To Launch, Or Just Theatrics?

What part of "rubber stamp" do these guys not understand?

The Daily News reports:

"Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata, D-Oakland, admitted he could not muster enough votes to get the bill out of his house, saying several Democratic members had voiced questions or concerns. But he predicted that the votes would be lined up by Monday and it would win approval and move back to the Assembly for final passage."

Apparently some of the fellahs claim they want to "read" the bill. Yeah, right. I'm sure the go through all the legislation they enact with a fine tooth comb.

Smells more like "three-day weekend" to me.

It's neither failure to launch or theatrics. It's the dawning of the realization that the bungee cord only goes so far and that the back lash is not pleasant. Just ask any sitting Republican what the penalty for voting YES is.

I would love to hear how Antonio is going to spin this one. The following is Sleazy Weezy's response to Daily News opinion. This is why Zuma Dogg needs to run for CD14.

Re "What's the deal with José Huizar?"(Their Opinions, Aug. 15):
During my 4 1/2 years as a school board member, I fought hard to reform the Los Angeles Unified School District. I won some victories, and all were against entrenched opposition.

Now that I'm a City Council member, I'm singing the same tune and still pushing for accountability and transparency at the LAUSD. That's why I support the mayor's school-reform plan and why I'm working to end the Wild West atmosphere of board elections with a ballot measure to institute term limits and contribution caps.

School reform isn't about the mayor's deal, my deal or even the school board's deal. It's about getting a better deal for the students and families in LAUSD.

Is Don Perata still being investigated by the FBI? I haven't heard anything on that story for a while.

But Perata knows this bill is important to Nunez, who controls the flow of legislation through the Assembly. Nunez and Villaraigosa are close allies, and some say Nunez could be the next mayor of Los Angeles.

I just happened to tune in to Channel 35 last nite and they were doing a replay of the town mtg. in Boyle Heights with Tony Villar, Tony Huizar, Gloria Romero, etc. It was like watching a 3rd grade pta mtg in Tijuana.

All of the written questions were in Spanish, and AV answered in English and Spanish. Why he bothered with English is beyond my comprehension since it was obvious the group didn't speak English.

AV never could have fooled a group of Westside parents the way he did this group. His answers were so totally incomplete and juvenile! All he did was prance around the stage with his phony, ludicrous, poses. He looked like a circus performer.

HIS people are the only ones who can be persuaded. NONE OF US is falling for his sham!

I hope that legal action is taken immediately after this scam is perpetrated. I'm sure that he won't be able to stand up under the legal scrutiny of this farce!

Just get rid of this unholy alliance of Mexicans. They have nothing between their ears!

Republicans for Rational Reform and Senate Republican Leaders
are making a difference in opposing AB1381.

Good work on your efforts to Stop Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Jackie Goldberg from taking control of the 7 Billion Dollar and 770,000 student LAUSD.

Your letters and polling are giving our Senate Republicans the support they need to stop this bill in the Senate.

The endorsement I received from the California Republican Assembly resulted in all Republican members being contacted and told this bill must be stopped. As a result, the Republicans who were undecided are now on the record in opposition.

Senator Chuck Poochigian of Fresno who is a candidate for State Attorney General has demonstrated the character of his convictions and has risked some political support and has come out in opposition of AB1381.

So this will be a critical weekend in the life of AB1381. Get the message to the Governor Veto AB1381. Write him direct at our web site www.vetonow.com and take the poll! Get those numbers up…

Pass this on to your e-mail groups. Grassroots activism still works.

Have you been to CD14 and consider a city council run?

GREAT IDEA!!! David has been passionate on issues and has gained the support of many from over the hill on the other side. You would be a good candidate for CD14. Jose hasn't done shit and just does what Antonio says he can do. As long as he has that corrupt Gustavo with him he'll never have crediability.

David Hernandez has hit on the key that nobody ever pays attention to.

It's all about one thing and one thing only.

The seven billion dollars.


That is what this takeover is all about.

Actually, we have hit on the $7 billion thing, just so you know. Villaraigosa wants control so he can redistribute tax dollars to his buddies, who in turn will continue to contribute to his ongoing political campaigns. It's a quid pro quo thing.

There are many good people in CD14. Surley one of them will step up to the plate.

Here is a new twist. What if AB1381 passes but we end up with a one term Mayor. Who is willing to step up to that challange? Who would you support and who should they pick to be the Super of LAUSD?

The one term mayor signs were already up at city hall for the EAA strike...

So far only Jimmy Hahn had upset so many of his supporters in so short a period of time. Looks like we have a new winner MAV!

Wow, Walter. Your a genius!

Too bad you haven't read the bill. The Mayor nor the Council of Mayors would have control over the budget.

Your mouth just runs ... the thoughts behind the what you write are simply random and inconsequential.

You haven't read the fine print, because the Mayor will have a large share/stake in who is Superintendent, s/he will also determine how much funds the superintendent can transfer over to LA, in the disguise of Parks, Gang/Drug education, Cultural Affairs.

It doesn't say it directly but much of politics is in it's subtleness rather than it's direct speak.
