DWP: How Are You Gonna Provide Water To All These HIgh Density, Mixed-Use Projects With No Water From The Delta River?


Zuma Dogg has warned yo azz, time and time again. Villaraigosa, Wesson, Reyes, Council -- you gotta slam on the brakes on your high-density mixed use commercial and housing projects. Don't be a bunch of greedy, ignorant, society destoyers. Haven't you ever heard of "enironmental impact?"

PUBLIC NOTICE: The Endangered Species Act is being violated in the Northern Delta River.

Well, there's a utility company called, "DWP" and they get about half of L.A.'s water supply from this river, via two huge indiscriminate water pumps. These pumps are killing off fish, So a judge had to step in, since politicians refuse to use good judgement, and says the shady, wasteful and fraudulent utility company has 60-90 days to change pumps and replace them with more environmentally friendly pumps-- or this spicket of water will be turned off, by Federal Judge and no more water from the Delta.

This would most likely triple or quadruple rates. Plus, you can't really build any new high density condos or mixed used comercial developments that continue to be approved in L.A. WITHOUT PROPER INFRASTRUCTURE.. (Watch the tract maps and land dedications, y'all.) ZD HAS BEEN TELLING YOUR ASS ABOUT THIS.

Keywords: endangered species act political greed Mad Max scenario stop the density you shady greedy corupt politicians.

WOW -- 3:18am, 3:31am!?!?!

Get the psychological help you need. When you are commenting on ZD's spelling errors at 3am, you got a problem!

I have a good idea for the obsessively compulsed loser: I won't use spell check, and you don't read my stories. Why don't you just stop reading my stories. They are obviously keeping you up at night.

Plus, whether you read my stories, or not, it won't affect the outcome of anything: You have nothing to do with anything in this city -- be it the problem OR solution, since you are only a fan watching in the stands and commenting on me, not the issues.

So whether you read what ZD say, or not -- it won't make 1/1000000th of a difference because you have no influnece or elevated media platform.

Plus, don't give yourself credit by saying "how stupid WE are" -- you have NOTHING to do with anything in this City, so don't say "WE" like you are a part of it --- and I never called anyone stupid -- just shady and greedy. And on my shortest story ever, you complain about ranting -- and the first time I offer DVD & CD for sale, you call it begging?

Get some sleep, then try again, Nr. "Not-A-Contributor-On-This-Or-Any-Blog", because no one cares what you have to say, loser.

BUT, I don't have to have a jobn to tell you how great I am...as a matter of fact -- I'm FUCKING FAN-TASTIC. People tell me all day long, and they wanna make a national TV show about me. YOU, my friend are in as much demand as Soupy Sales.

And oh yeah, any comments of the Delta River problem?

The fact that minor spelling errors, makes it difficult to take in the message, is due to an obsessive , perfectionist nature, that is a formula for a lifetime of misery and unhappiness.

You see, a FUNCTIONAL human being, without these massive emotional problems -- and feelings of rejection -- will read a story and comment on the content/message.

Perhaps, a reader would attack the author for their viewpoint, or the credibility of the issue itself.

However, this individual is so DYSFUNCTIONAL and emotionally disturbed, they cannot even get past the little imperfections in life, that they will never be able to eliminate. But they spend their life, trying to stick their finger in every hole in the damn, hoping for that ONE magic moment, where everything is perfect, and they can have a moment of clarity and innerpeace -- but the moment never arrives, because we do not live in a perfect vaccume. So they are up at 3am, blowing a brain gasket over spelling errors and my employment status. Would the person feel better if I worked at Starbuck's in between blog posts? Would that change the content or spirit of the message?

If ZD shaved and didn't wear a ski cap, would that make you enjoy his typed words more? Would it allow you to enjoy his radio calls.

Look at the things you are focused on and it's no wonder you are a rejected, ineffective loser that no one has ever written about in LA TImes, Daily News, LA Weekly, LA Ctiy Beat, all local political blogs...PBS and VH1 never featured you, John & Ken, Doug Mc, Mr. K, Kevin James never mentions you or the work you do, their callers don't mention you name out of the clear blue sky, you are not working on an LA Weekly article, and reality show producers did not contact you for a show about YOUR life.

And that's enough to make your HEAD EXPLODE!
Order Personal Power now, and I'll give you a $100 discount on my next multi-day seminar.

Zuma,

Gathering the information from "An Inconveniant Truth", we are going to have an overpopulation problem for at least the next several decades. Also, we currently have and will continue to have (unless we change) a problem with global warming which is caused in large part from transportation engines and the deforestization of the environment (urban sprawl).

High density housing is apossible solution to these problems because, in theory, such communities will limit the need for transportation vehicles and allow us to protect and possibly expand "green" space.

The question is whether such a lifestyle would be tolerable to most people and whether the probable consolidation of land ownership would further concentrate wealth and power.

Another possible, yet also limited solution is to create population "caps" on certain geographical areas in order to allow for lifestyles that both fit the ideals of the voting populace and, hopefully, the immediate environmental landscape. In other words, moving all the "extras" inland to Arizona, New Mexico, et al.

The questions then are whether we are comfortable having "big brother" telling US citizens which "states" they can live in and, more importantly whether we can truly solve the global air quality issues by merely moving the air pollutants to another part of the planet.

There is plenty of water available (and apparently more on its way as a result of global warming), whether from other freshwater sources or desalination. All of the possible methods have drawbacks.

I believe our biggest challenge as a community is picking a particular method and having the guts to implement it with its drawbacks in a sober manner. All are expensive, require commitment of tax money, and possess what is commonly called "mitigated risks".

We all know, as a society, we have a surplus of "armchair quarterbacks" around who will lament whatever is chosen and take satisfaction in being a naysayer. Further, they can probably get money by filing lawsuits against of the expensive measures and gain noteriety as a watchdog.

Therefore,on second thought, I have a possible job solution for you that many of your crusading ilk have chosen: wait until a significant financial commitment has been made to an infrastructure project, then sue with the help of a salivating lawyer who has press connections, and "presto!", you have money and a new star is born.

Of course, those environmental problems are further away from being addressed, but what the hell, there's more money in blaming someone else!

Just remember, don't ever propose solid solutions, only knock down those who do and you can keep dipping the well for decades!

You say "in theory". Yes, and I disagree with that theory for this City. It's not that I'm trying to be armchair quarterback, as much as I am trying to warn the planners that there are impacts to their actions. (Call it ying/yang, karma, ecology or enivronmental impact.) Point of the thread was, "you continue to build high density in the fact of inftrastructure problems. And now, you might lose the delta river as a source."

I know all about the concept of mixed-use, high density so as to allow people to live and work without long commutes and all the benefits.

My dream was to live in NYC, and I did live AND work there. And I either walked, to work, or took the subway, and didn't need my car (except to hit the beaches on the weekend) -- and I LOVE THAT! (Only reason I moved to Cali, was cause of the weather, mountians and ocean.)

And it is my opinion that Los Angeles will never be that type of City. Sorry, it just won't. the city (and county) is simply too geographically large and spread out. You can take the subway, but then you need to catch the bus, the rest of the way. Or you take the bus, then you still have to walk several long blocks. Plus, people don't want to take public transportation in L.A. (For these reasons and others) I'm all for the perception,but I don't think you are dealing in reality.

I don't think public trasnportation will ever be motr than a drop in the bucket in this town. Maybe we'll switch over to the metric system, someday, and maybe we'll all jump on the bus to and from work.

Meanwhile, you're building thewhole City under a faulty premise. (No pun intended.)

DON'T YOU PEOPLE SEE THIS??? Meanwhile to all the people who are hollering "let's build high density -- people will take the bus...ZD wants to know, do YOU take the bus? [I know, I know, you take the bus...yeah, right!]

March 27, 2007 9:16 AM

The question is whether our community is willing to compromise their "living environment" preferences for the betterment of the global environment.

I agree that the high density option has particular cultural drawbacks aand I definitely have reservations about its successful implementation, I guess my bigger point is that whether we like it or not something has to be done right now, and all of our options have enough drawbacks to entice consternation and lawsuits which will further hamper their possible success.

The only immediate likelihood I see is that politician's will throw up vague solutions, hire consultants at the taxpayer's expense to iron them out, then write legislation on their fleshed out plans which will solicit more taxpayer paid consultants to advertise the proposal and westside liberal paid environmental consultants to cite its shortcomings, then a local activist(s) will be "created/made" by the westside to personify their "local opposition" which will allow them to fundraise more money for their political campaigns and environmental consultants, then a threatened lawsuit will appear whose settlement will require more taxpayer money for more consultants, planners, and engineers, and then by that time the politician will be running away from the proposal because they're termed out and don't want be associated with a flawed plan and the cycle will be renwed at the next election.

The real beauty of it all is that all of the paid participants can then recycle the monies collected into their campaign fund as those "consultants", both pro and con, become political campaign consultants during election season.

Why would any of these so-called experts want to step away from the trough long enough to take a desperate immediate step to address a critical problem? The "inconvenient truth" is they won't until lots of people die and whoever is in power, locally and/or nationally can be blackballed a'la musical chairs.

Just ask the people of New Orleans why those wall weren't fixed for so long.

Hate to say it bro, since you took the time, and DID provide commentary, however, even still, YOU are the armchair quarterback on this one, too -- because, in reality, you did not offer any solutons either. (Besides the "off-topic" job solution for ZD, which I liked an am going to pursue...you're right about that.)

So you are saying, "WHAT!!! HOW DARE HE!!! I DID OFFER SOLUTIONS, I SAID, "High density housing so people drive less, and "population caps."

However, you then go on to present the opposing argument as well. So all you did is play arm chair quarterback yourself.

Ex: If you say, "Well I think the way out of this is a LEFT TURN. However, some would say, RIGHT TURN." (Thanks a lot...but I didn't see you recommend which way to go.) It's called "mis-matchers" syndrome. A person is so fearful of making a bad decision, they make no decision, only get lost in repetitive loop of "devil's advocate" talk.

So thanks for the pontification of the obvious. But, if you could...which one is it, "Build high density -- or would it be intolerable?

Which one is it, population caps -- or no populations caps. (I know people will say big brother...so which one is it...population caps , or no big brother?)

If you are a leader, you have to make that call and act on it. I didn't see which one you are in favor of?

One thing about ZD -- you know on which side of the issue he stands. And he offers solutons. (We do not have proper infrastructure...stop building high density projects where infrastructure cannot accomodate. And this thread demostrates the problems that lie ahead.

Man, I see why you have trouble leading your community: Anyone can say, you can either turn left, or right. You can take a step forward, or you can stand where you are. BIG DEAL...THIS IS NOT KNOWLEDGE.

A leader must not only understand both sides of the situation, they must make a decision, then act on it. Not just keep rehashing both sides and repeating, We could go left, or we could also go right.

But you're telling ME what I should do. What a loser you are. You pompous pontificator. You can't even read, let alone comprehend, the Deming article that I wrote! No wonder you are so confused and frustrated by the insightful rants of one Big ZD. YOU CAN DO IT THOUGH, TOO, PAL!
Lose the fear, focus on you, not me...media spotlight is not a zero sum gain. In otherwords, you can have the Beatles AND Rolling Stones. You can have Coke AND Pepsi. You can have Tom Hanks AND John Travolta. Maybe if you master that single premise, you can become a functional, contribnnuting particpant to this blog, once again.

But you're still no ZD. But that's O.K. You can be you, and there's more than enough room. Jeez-uz...You think Noel Weiss, or Chuch Tennen, or Matt Dowd, or Red Spot, or Antonio Watch, or Walter Moore, or Mayor Sam or Joe Mailander or so many others lose one second of sleep over ZD? Hell Naw! They continue to lead their lives, and do there thing -- and they all continue to inspire Zuma Dogg.

Good day City Slickers, summer is upon us and yet another valid position is being ignored. Real quick to follow up on the insomniac anony'mouse'..... AMBIEN

After reading many of ZD post for a while now, anyone can see the persistant nature of trying to be helpful. The Great Zuma has learned plenty in his year in service. He shoots stright for the problem and is 'ANNIE OAKLEY' for marksmanship.

I met with former Vice- President some time back and of course the subject of Global Warming came up, yea I asked if he would run for President, usual answer. Anyway, back to topic, with more high density here in town all we can do is hope that mother nature finds a way to curb the population boom. (EARTHQUAKE)

The whole deal about the Delta River is new news to me, but it would be some sight to see Los Angeles dry up like a 'chili saladito' becuse we follow developers solutions to societies problems. Once again I will say that we have become prisoners in our own land. Allowing the world to stop/(LIVE)in L.A., I don't mind if they stop, but keep going to where you came from.

Out in Rose Hills (my part of the city) I have seen (2) small natural water ways dry up in the last 15 years. ~~~~> (in my astronaut voice...... 'Mayor, we have a PROBLEM!) HIGH DENSITY.

Placing a cap on the publics ability to decide where they want to live may be a solution in the future. Right now we need to find a way to reduce population expansion and increase water surplus. Refering to a real investment to be considered. (FUEL CELL)

DWP~~~~> spend $20 million on the future of the residents, produce your own energy, (by-product is water) use the technology we have to be more efficient, and lead this city with confidence.

MAYOR~~~> spend $50 million to follow the Goveners idea of the 'Hydrogen Highway' and reduce emission to pre-1970 levels by the end of the decade.

BLOGGERS~~~> (that means you), stop being so angry about what ZUMA has to say and make a change for the rest of us. Yes it is up to you, do something.

PUBLIC~~~> be thankful 1/1000000th of your neighbors feels it is important that you are living in a united and active metropolis, if you want something done, dial 311.

Pipes is the usual reference to infrastructure.

But in this case, it's about DWP killing endagered fish with thier toxic pumps. So the judge said, if you don't switch em out with eco-friendly water pumps -- you can't use the river at all, y'all.
Except the Federal judge didn't say, "y'all."

Zuma,

The last time I checked neither you nor I are elected leaders of our community and at least I don't intend or pretend to become one. I do have enough knowledge, though, to understand that if we address the ecological problems that face us at least a whole generation of middle to low income individuals will suffer a standard of living below the one we are enjoying today.

This is a dire message in that it is not only depressing but it is also neccessary to accept as soon as possible. That's what I expect from true leaders and/or those that aspire to be. It is secondary as to whether we go "left or right". The important thing is to get on board.

To restate my point, the current political climate is unwilling to take on this task because it would make them immediately unpopular and/or dry up the funnel of money they currently enjoy.

Each year they spend more and more money trying to get less and less votes in a growing population. Why? The people still voting would likely vote anyway and are predisposed in their position. Where does the money go to? Could it be that it is "laundered" from consultant fees to campaign coffers and back again?

To use my two examples, a population cap or high density, both manipulate working class people to either cramped living quarters or long commutes, either by car or mass transit. The illusion of designated low-income housing can either be more realistically described as gilded cages or temporary gilding which lasts as long as the veneer.

Why do you think the middle class is disappearing so fast around here anyway? Illegal immigration is only a symptom of the disease. LA is quickly becoming a city of the wealthy and those who serve them quietly and keep their mouth shut. Just ask the LA Times reporters still hanging around.

Finally, I apologize if I offended you. I understand that you have a character to play and envision yourself as a "pied piper" for the people as such. You have every right to your viewpoint.

It's just frustrating for me to have politicos such as ADV and his ilk continue to waste our time when I know many of his "kitchen cabinet" full well the gravity of the situation yet they are unwilling to address beyond the study/propose/complain/sue/drop/divy up the money cycle that has been so pervasive for many years. Personally, I would applaud any politico who would look working people in the eye and thank them for their sacrifice after they explained the options before us, but instead they'd much rather thank the donors for the sacrifice shown on the check and tell them that they are "really busy looking into that."

If you want to be a working class hero, Zuma, check out John Lennon and drop the act, because the battle is dirty and ongoing.

You say, "It is secondary as to whether we go "left or right". The important thing is to get on board."


WRONG-- WRONG -- WRONG. Getting on board is NOT the most important thing. Moving the ship FORWARD is the most important thing. And a leader is responsible for taking input for advisors, then making the final call -- TURING THE WHEEL LEFT OR RIGHT.

To say being on board is the most important thing ,not left or right IS THE STUPIDEST AND MOST REVEALING THING A PUSSY LIKE YOU HAS EVER SAID. I'M GLAD MAYOR SAM DOESN'T LET "YOU" WRITE OR MODERATE ON THIS BLOG.

4:13pm,

the question i would like to know is who do YOU think it is. I'm just curious as to how obvious it is.

Even though there are more than one ZD opponents on the blog, there is one who I have ZERO respect for, due to weakness of argument -- and an especially crybaby, jealous, two-faced, LOSER! (Just ask anyone who knows him. And I only wish he would chill and just start going back to what he does: Lead his community, in the areas he is good at. The problem this person suffers from, is the same thing DE used to suffer from.

Wanting to be the other guy. I wanted to be Gene Simmons, or Bruce Springteen, or Al Ries & Jack Trout, or whoever was inspiring me.

But I couldn't be those people, because they already were. So I found MY niche, that no one else could ever duplicate, and believe me, you wouldn't want to duplicate. HOWEVER, I still wish I could play guitar like Matt Dowd, and have my own blog as good as Mayor Sam or be as good awesome as Doug McIntyre (especially so early in the morning), or be as shady as Eric Garcetti, or as knowlegeable about the ins and outs of the City from a community standpoint as Red Spot, or as good a writer as Jill Stewart, or actually know what I am talking about like Walter Moore, or especially -- the new thing I wanna be -- the lead singer of Whitestarr. But I CAN NEVER BE THE LEAD SINGER OF WHITESTARR...But the good thing is...the lead singer of Whitestarr wishes he could be speaking his mind against shady fraud, waste and abuse:

So he invited me to be in his reality show tommorow, and we are both gonna be happy...wishing we were a little more like the other guy...but happy we were each able to carve out our own unique niche, that allows BOTH of us to be creative, and have fun...And like Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora, someday we'll look back and say, 'We've seen a million faces, and we ROCKED em all!

If you want your nemises (whoever he or she is) to post under their own name, why don't you do the same?

Do you notice any unequal standard being applied here?

That explains ZD's rants about blogging privilleges. Perhaps he is off his medication? Must be because if it is a contest, Jim wins. He's been published hundreds of times, been featured on CNN, MSNBC, FOX, all local TV as well as out of state. Even the bloggers on here voted him Citizen of the year or something like that over ZD back n January so why would this battle even be occurring?

Of course Jim doesn't run all over town telling people how great he is. He actually works WITH the system to find actual solutions.

Sorry to here about Jim's dad. Losing a parent is always difficult. I'm sure the last thing he needs is blind attacks but it's all par for the course I guess.

Hey man, we NEED the housing for all the illegal immigrants who keep coming and coming.

This sanctuary city of ours is busting at the seams, and no one mentions it at all.

The freeways are total gridlock starting at 2:30 P.M. and continuing until 8:00 P.M.

Let's get the borders closed and the ones we have here assimilated and stop worrying about a few fish and other doo-dad crap that the Fool dances and rants about for alms.

Hell, most folks would pay $19.00 to NOT have to listen to his 2 hour BS rant.

Zuma Dogg, you are correct.. well actually it is the MWD that is being sued, not the LADWP which has it's own problems but you still are correct, water is still the determining factor to development and we are ignoring it.

It wasn't all that long when the city mandated that we could not water our lawns (remember when people were painting there lawns green?), had to go to low flush toilets (you still had to flush twice) and those awful miserly showerheads. Eventually those days passed by but not so much because the drought was over but more so because the agriculture industry has had every bit of efficiency squeezed out of it.

Those days have ended and in fact, those efficiencies are now being reversed with the urbanization of open space and agricultural land in other counties and states. We are now competing for water supplies from Nevada, Imperial and San Diego Counties not to mention ourselves. Recently LADWP had begun returning water to the Owens Valley. The MWD's problem with the Delta smelt is compounding the problem.

Can we honestly keep building in order to meet SCAG's prediction for an increase in population by 30% ? No.

Our policymakers are leadiing us down the road to ruin.
