Council CLAIMS They Want More Community Participation, Then They Make You Wait 3 HOURS For Public Comment You COWARDS!

* MAYOR PRO TEM ZUMA DOGG WOULD LIKE TO APOLOGIZE TO ALL THE PEOPLE WHO TOOK TIME OFF, AND SPENT THE MONEY TO SHOW UP TO CITY HALL TO PARTICIPATE IN THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS, ONLY TO HAVE TO WAIT THREE HOURS. (Most people, just left without participating, after waiting hours.) HEY Expense report abusing cowards -- You can spend all the money you want on "Community outreach" banners -- but it doesn't work if you make people have to wait three hours for two minutes, then you don't really pay much attention anyway.

* Oh no...Must be problems in CD 14, because ZD's Batphone is down, only receiveing voicemails, not accepting incoming or outgoing. Problem is, no gas money to get to Sprint, so it ain't gonna get fixed till I get some donations, y'all. (Leave a voice mail and I'll get it though.)

BUT, I can tell by all the voicemails on my phone, there must be problems in El Sereno with a recent NC election, y'all. I think the results are being challenged, y'all. I'll get an update and holla back, y'all.

UPDATE: ZD just heard Carlos Morales of "The Voice" (El Sereno newspaper) on Public Comment. (Thanks for waiting 3 hours, Carlos). He says, Regarding Eastside Adalante area during the elections, NO OUTREACH or proper and fair notification in El Sereno. CRA claims newspaper ads were placed in both English and Spanish in El Sereno Star in Feb. Only thing, the publication has not existed since the '90's. And the other papers it was publicized in, don't make it to El Sereno. (You're taxing those people, how come you don't want them to vote? ZD says, either re-do the elections, or have El Sereno sucseed, like the Valley is starting to now again talk about doing.)

* MEANWHILE -- It's 12:20 F-ING PM -- and these ass-kissing Councilmembers are STILL kissing ass, two hours and twenty minutes past the 10am starting time. (So even if they start 20 minutes late, and ZD will give them that, CUT BACK ON THE MEANINGLESS DOG AND PONY ASS-KISSING SHOWS. You sit there and time ZD down to the second, but you have no probelm wasting two-hours, after you have been kissing-ass,OUT OF TOWN all week. (Do that on YOUR time pal, not OURS!)

Zuma Dogg and the people of Los Angeles would like to make a motion to pull the plug on all that meaningless, politicial posturing, photo-op bullsh*t. That way, if NO CM is allowed to waste City time and money of the "Freaky Friday's", they won't be forced to out smooch each other. (At least take Miriam's advice and move the waste parade to the end of the meeting, after important business, like Zuma Dogg & Miriam's public comments are done.)

MAN, am I glad I didn't go to the meeting today: I would have been furious to have my valuable time wasted like that. I mean, the only thing Councilmembers lose, is some time collecting money from contributors at lunch. But, other people are ACTUALLY talking to and doing things for the people; since y'all don't do a G-D damn thing for anyone but your lobbiests.

AND DON'T YOU DARE MAKE MY REALITY CREW WAIT NO 2 HOURS WHEN THEY SHOW UP. You're only Councilmembers...my reality show crew is HOLLYWOOD, *******.

* It's 12:33pm, and I'm sorry the dog and pony shows are over, cause -- it's time for, "Oh no, not Parks", and his ridiculous waste of time and money bid for the Olympics. No committee in their right mind will give it to L.A., till City Hall takes care of a few things, first. (You can't have any pudding if you don't eat your meat...HOW can you have any pudding if you DON'T eat your meat....HUH, Don't kick your feet.)

And even if, for some shady reason, Antonio is able to pull a "Garcetti" (some shady string pulling) and get the Olympics here, WE DON'T WANT IT. Can you imagine the nightmare about ten years from now, when we don't have enough highways, roads, parking, police, and all the disruption it will cause the over-crowded City. (After all, you're expecting another 4 million people, right?)

Everyone would like to go back to those magic golden eras of the past. But you can't go back in time. It is a different City now, because of your actions and policies. It's frustrating, I know. It seems like L.A. SHOULD be the best City in the world to host the Olympics. Unfortunately, I don't think the City can make any kind of promise that they will be able to manage the extra burden on the infrastructure. (I wish I could go back and re-create the days days of my past. But I can't. And neither can L.A. Otherwise, we'd be sitting at Arnold's with Fonzie and Zuma Dogg sipping on milkshakes.)

* GARCETTI TAKES PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE JAB AT CM ZINE: It's not enough Garshady has to bully comment public speakers; now he's gotta turn his passive agressiveness to his own colleauge, CM Dennis Zine. CM Zine wanted to comment on the Olympic agenda item. And after the CM spoke, Garshshady had to add, "Winston Churchill once said, 'Everything had been said, but it hadn't been said by everyone." THAT'S A SLAM -- RHODES SCHOLAR STYLE, Y'ALL (Pulling out the WC reference.)

* It's 1:00pm, and they are FINALLY taking public comment. How rude. Take the public comment speeches first, *******.

* And thanks to Doug McIntyre of 790-KABC for requesting "a "hemp" t-shirt from Zuma Dogg" on the air! Yeah, yeah! ZD will be back on the beach, selling them soon, y'all...Cause Matt Dowd is a better attorney, that 500 City Attorneys -- and the ban is gonna be kicked to the curb, like a cheap ho, which is what these fools at City Hall are.

Zuma, those three hours could have meant you could get Mr. Anteater downstairs a proper trim.

So that you can become the porn star/politician that you've always dreamed of.

Cum to think of it, Politics and Porn are quite similiar, it requires a lot of c**ksucking to get the money (shots)

It's one thing that those council persons will never let go of, doing a lot of head-patting, back-slapping and certificate-giving to buy loyalty for a relatively cheap price (How much did the indigenous residents, aka Indians, receive for Manhattan?).

What IS expensive is the time lost. They each get paid quite a bit more than a pretty penny. None is a volunteer.

They don't get real business done.

They keep people waiting until they feel like it, costing everyone time and weakening whatever faith the public had that the council is "doing it's best."

Guess what? I think this is the "best" they can do.

Since Councilman John (Alger) and ZD had a falling out, we have seen all kinds of vicious attacks by anonymous posters directed at ZD. These attacks remind me of the anonymous attacks against; Smith, Englander, Shaw, Sarno and DeYoung. All of these folks had some kind of conflict with Alger.

Hang in there ZD.

Easy to say, "any day but Friday", but there are only three days, and sometimes a lof of shady fraud, waste and abuse happens on Friday.

I can't give those corrupt community wreckers a day off, just cause they feel like hoppin' on the "waste parade" float, cause each one has to flash their phony smiles to the constituents watching throughout the City of ruins.

It reminds me of something Eric Garshady once said: "WInston Churchill once said, 'There is nothing that hasn't been said, but everyone wants to fu king say it." (Or something like that, y'all!)

Point is: Let's make it fair and fun. Here's how ZD says it should be done, and WILL be done, first day on the job after '09 Mayoral elections:

On Freaky Friday's "Waste Parade", each presentation is limited to EIGHT minutes. Unless Mayor Bradley shows up, ain't no one in the City need much more ass kssing than that. ESPECIALLY HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL TEAMS. WE DON'T NEED TO HEAR A MARV ALBERT RECAP OF THE WINNING TOUCHDOWN. FOOTBALL DON'T MEAN SH*T, Y'all.

You wanna go more than eight minutes for some high school kids. Maybe you can have the team of kids with the highest schoolastic achivement scores show up and tell folks how they did it. THEN, It wouldn't annoy the City when Tom LaBong has to waste valuable quorum time to tell one of his cheerleading stories. (But I LOVE ya, Tom! Everyone likes Tom, they are just annoyed by the in-proportionate amount of time he talks about FOOTBALL, as opposed to LEGISLATION.

BUT HERE'S THE SOLUTION: When you are paying tribute to these photo op-props during "presentation and proclamations" on "Freaky Friday" -- ANY Councilmember can buzz in to speak...THEN, the computer will select up to THREE Councilmembers to speak on behalf of the recipient pawn, and will keep track of proper rotation. Three ass kissings should be enough to cover it all.

If you want your comments translated, that comes out of your time, pal...not ours. In other words, say it in any laungauge, but translations count against YOUR time, not the next guys. Otherwise, ZD wants his comments translated in Mandarin Chinese, y'all! So Council may want to consider giving presentations in ONE language, because Dr. Deming says it's pretty inefficient to be saying huge, long-winded presentations -- only to have to say them, all over in another language.

2:57 What is your obsession with Alger? He isn't even in town, he's been handling his fathers burial in Florida. Have you no shame? ZD has been being attacked since day one on this blog and seems adult enough to take it.

Any stupid excuse to take a shot at Jim huh? Oh, and DeYoung attacked Alger in an email blast. No one attacked the other way or did you forgt the story that ran over it as you try to write revisionist history.

ZD, as for thie subject at hand Friday has always been a cluster fuck demonstration of how the City Council considers the public less than dog shit. Doubt that will change.

It may not have been said, but certainly insinuated.

True, there is a pattern. Remember the scathing attacks against Alger as well. Routinely some moron goes after Walter Moore... etc.

The pattern is that people who feel they can smear someone anonymously will do so for whatever perceived gain they can find. The attacks got so bad Sam had this board moderated for a time.

People hate Zuma, Alger, Walter, or just about anyone who stands against the politics as usual crowd. When they post slanderous attacks anonymously there words shouldn't be given a second glance.

What I notice is ZD seems to be focused on issues and some anonymous poster continues to post some really hateful stuff. Stuff that seem far over the top in comparison to attacks on ZD prior to the Alger fallout.

See the 2:00pm post!

Was there any reason for Councilman John (Alger) to call Sarno cabage patch. What did name calling have to do with N/Cs, nothing but Councilman John did that routinely.

Now it is happening to ZD. Like I said, Who is next on the hit list?

Very good point Zuma. What needs to happen is you need to rally community members as many as you can get and speak out at public comment about the circus these clowns have created. They didn't meet for 2 days and instead of taking care of business they waste time. I thought last year each clowncil member had 5 mins. per presentation. This group has to be the most unprofessional knuckleheads in the nation. They are an embarrassement to the system. You're right though Zuma that the PUBLIC should have more of a priority at their meetings. YOu need to keep this issue ALIVE to all the media you deal with. Embarrass their butts over and over, spread the word, keep talking about the insanity of clowncil chambers.

funny how the rules on their presentations (time place and manner), has gotten itself tied up in committee, just like Weiss' event fee waiver (wee favor).
but didn't the decorum rules go thru with a bullet.

and wow, at least we proved the great Jim Alger always reads this blog. nice to see you back Jimmy, I look forward to your ongoing political forays.

Alger has a lot to say that is meaningful.

You are the one who keeps complaining about others not paying attention to you, carrying on, ranting and raving and dancing and singing jsust to create attention. Yet, when he posts something meaningful, you choose to delete it.

Shamed on you; you deserve the miserable life you lead, begging for gas money, coffee money, food money and attention.

Go ahead and delete me, too. Pretty soon you'll have no one to delete.

"nothing affects this city LESS, than Jim Alger." hmmm... then why was he "Outstanding Young Californian" last year?
Citizen of the year this year?
Vice Chair of the Los Angeles Neighborhood Councils Congress and the man who organized the defeat of the DWP 18% rate hike saving rate-payers 10'S OF MILLIONS of dollars?

Sounds like he has an ENORMOUS effect on Los Angeles... Certainly more than a mutt from Malibu.

There were a lot of comments on this thread slamming ZD -- than ZD resoponded to the slams with defensive comments.

NONE of it, had anything to do with anything, except, ZD is an idoit, and everyone else is the best.

But it wouldn't have been fair for ZD to delete the anti-zd posts, but leaving up my defensive replies. SO I TOOK MY COMMENTS DOWN TOO.

And people claim I have something to gain by perpetuating a beef. Not the case, at all. So the ball is in your court.

If you feel ZD deleted something so important and it was so unfair...re-post it for all to see. you can have the last words...and hopefully we can move on to other issues, I mean issues.

If you don't like any of this...go somewhere else.
