LAUSD Bill Goes To Assembly

The California Senate passed Villaraigosa's LAUSD bill.

The Assembly will rubber stamp it, the the governor, and will then all claim a victory "for the children."

Net impact on education: basically nothing, other than to blur responsibility so much that Villaraigosa will be able to claim responsibility for any improvement, and deny responsibility for any backsliding.

Not a Mayoral staffer (though I am good friends with many of them, they're good people, btw).

Just wanted to toss some mud in your eyes, Wacko. You're a loser, and you support hopeless causes. You will never be a winner, like the Mayor's staffers.

Ha-ha! (in Nelson Muntz character)

For once, Wacko and I are on the same page, sorta.

Good news = ADV takes credit

Bad news = he had nothing to do with it.

But, maybe that's not all bad. Who gives a shit who takes credit, if something improves a bit.

Either way, Antonio's staffers will go out of their way to make him look good related to this, so he can be re-elected.

He's short-timer in every job, and the sooner they can drag up enough "credits" to make him look like he's accomplished something, the sooner he's on to his next gig, and L.A. can elect someone who can actually solve problems.

Having "a mayor" responsible for schools isn't necessarily a bad thing -- just having one in "charge" like ADV, whose attention span is not quite as long as the square root of the half-life of a housefly's adolesence.

(But Wacko, you know there are people in L.A. that disagree with you other than the mayor's staffers? Judging from your tortured attempt at getting elected, about 3.88 million of them).

One or two of those could be blogging, as well.

Something tells me that AV plays the usual game that most politicians play... they will double-cross every bridge they come to. In light of my comment, I dare to say that he is quite the two-timer (witness his affair with a staffer while holding an elected state legislative office).

Now if only the voters could see the gnome inside this guy. They could actually elect someone else, giving him the dubious distinction of being both a two-timer and a one-termer!

You forgot...and increase the power of the teacher's union of whom MAV's wife is very involved. Basically a weakened Board presentls less of a check and a blance against the union. MAV won the real victory after all.

5:03PM/Mayor's own "Excellence in LA Schools"

I wouldn't say, "triumphs" quite yet. You see, the Bill is so shady, the only way Mayor Viagraosa could get it put through the Assembly was by having an amendment added regaring "Severability."

You see, previously, if the courts(state/federal) found anything wrong with the Bill, they could axe the bad stuff, and the rest of the Bill would remain.

So, The Mayor had to compromise by conceeding the severance part, cause under the new amendment (that assebly will now "pass" tomorrow) -- if the courts find anything wrong/improper/unconstitutional,
THE WHOLE BILL GETS TOSSED OUT.

And we already know LAUSD and others including Zuma Dogg and his staff of legal experts will file at both the state and federal level. And there's so much unconstitutional and improper stuff (according to State Senate Legislators), Mayor V. and his compromised, unethical Bill, that was never put to a vote by the people, even though his own committe said it MUST be put to a vote of the people, will almost certainly be thrown out of court and we'll be looking at Eric Garcetti and Zuma Dogg as the only two viable candidates for Mayor of L.A. in '09.

And finally, I want to remind all of The Mayor's harshest critics:

I'm sure The Mayor WANTS to fix the schools and succeed, if for no other reason it's good for his career. (The People's TRUE checks and alances, these days.)

So, the worst thing I can say about this Bill is that whatever initial intent the Mayor wanted to have, this Bill has been so compromised, so many politicians and special interest groups had to be cut in, so many amendments had to be made, it isn't gonna accomplish the goal anyway. But personally, I think the Bill stunk to begin with -- even though The Mayor may have thought it was good, but now it's a disaster that will be tied up in court, then thrown out anyway. But ven the proponents say it is a gamble anyway...so let's see where the dice fall.

ZUMA DOGG,

For the sake of George Runner's political survival. He better hope that AB 1381 is overturn in the courts, He and "Assburn" were the two GOP votes that gave "BOSS POLLO" the margin needed to pass. In regards to Dean Florez, watch for the newspaper with your political life wrapped in it. One most give Florez credit for standing up to "Tijuana Rose" and Fabian.

There was so much bullshit associated with this bill I'm amazed at just how ignorant people can be. Antonio had to promise so much he'll never be able to deliver.

I can hardly wait for the Clowncil members to get hard. Word is there scrambling to find the right way to argue their corrupt way they put Measure R on the ballot.

Once upon a time we were all on a school playground, playing as youth's often do. There were of course bullies who went around and shook other kids down, threatened them with "you won't be a part of the popular group if you don't do as we tell you to do." We all got shook down, even the City Hall staffers.

But now we're all well over the age of consent (except the City Hall staffers) and we are unwitting participants in the deja vu summer of our school age youth. There are bullies out there who would shake us down. We know who they are.

Usually bullies have some sort of flaw that they don't want exposed. They can't bully you if you ignore them and don't rise to the bait. It drives them wild when you say NO, as they are perverts at heart...just like City Hall staffers.

Ah, but with age also comes reason does it not? But then again we're not dealing with reasonable people, we're dealing with bullies. Their names? Nunez, Romero and Villar. Frommer. DeLeon. Huisar. Cedillo. Garcetti. Weiss. Padilla. A partial list, but we could name more.

IF we were smart, we would speak in a language that creeps like that understand. Even a City Hall staffers, blog monitoring slaves that they are, understand some things.

What language would that be? Forget the language of cash, because there's developers like Barr, Majestic, Muerelo and others; probably even Libaw-Horowitz just waiting with the teats of the cash cow in their hands. Even City Hall staffer know a good pair of teat when they see one.

No, it's not the language of cash. It's called The Box (i.e., the ballot box) because what goes into it determines who goes to the ball and who stays home with a broken pumpkin. For the next 8 weeks, Padilla and DeLeon will be practicing their News At Eleven smiles. MAV will undoubtedly give them tips and pointers.

DeLeon and Padilla are the targets. Take them out first. Don't let them into The Box by voting for them. Perhaps if both of them are picked off, and Measure R is defeated, then March Madness will mean something more than college basketball. Even City Hall staffers won't be as perky as a cheerleader in a brand new bra.

This is it. Are you willing to sail with a pirate crew? Or are you going to stay chained to an oar?

City Hall staffers. Bugger. Just a bunch of perverts.

8:42 - if making insinuations that I am gay is the best you can do, then you aren't worth the time or trouble of drawing and quartering.

Padilla and DeLeon should be made to walk the plank. Runner and Ashburn should be left on a deserted island with Dick Mountjoy and NO RUM.

I would leave 8:42 there to, but that would spoil all the fun, savvy?
