Home Depot Goes North

Even more reason to open a Home Depot in Sunland-Tujunga.

One of the "arguments" the nutcase NIMBYs who oppose Home Depots anyplace anywhere is that there are "too many" of them.

Soon there will be one less Home Depot. The Glendale store is closing to be replaced by a high-density housing development.

In the meantime, enjoy the following video:

Joe B loves capitalism!
He also loves Los Angeles.
He also respects the law and is fighting to make sure that corporations and developers do the same.

What about this video?

Check out 11:03 for an interesting tidbit from Jim Alger about the source of No2HD funding. Mayor Sam, this deserves its own thread.

Jim Alger created a plan whereby he would tell Neighborhood Councils to buy equipment from Do-It-Center if a % of the profits went to No 2 Home Depot. If any money was left over, it would go to the Congress of Neighborhood Councils.

Proof is on this video about 11 minutes in.

This has implications for the Congress of Neighborhood Councils, No 2 Home Depot, Jim Alger, and Joe Barett. Something is really wrong with this picture and the City should launch an investigation.

Mayor Sam, why don't you feature this video and the controversy on a new thread?

Wendy Greuel might be able to get away with it, but not NC. I can't make it through the video, but I'll just assume you got it wrong, cause that's the stupidist thing I've ever heard.

Scroll forward to 11 minutes. You don't have to watch the whole thing. I didn't get it wrong, Jim Alger says it clearly.

Zuma Dogg, watch the video if you really want to be a public advocate.

Is Mayor Sam covering up the video story because he is friends with Jim Alger and Jim used to advertise on the blog and contribute as Councilman John?

Zuma Dogg, why don't you watch the video and comment on it? Scroll just past 11:00 and tell us if the story is correct.

Great video, Mayor Sam. We need more of those, for a change of pace.

Maybe Nate Holden will start blogging for you, if you put enough of those videos on. LOL!

The NC system is being used to extort money from businesses to fight the opening of competing businesses!

Remove Jim Alger from the NC system!

Zuma, just watch the video. It is the stupidest thing you ever heard, plus it is probably the most illegal. Just scroll past 11 minutes, you don't have to watch the whole thing. Don't you think that Alger is shady anyway?

Joe Barrett appeared on Alice, for God's sake! He obviously knows a lot about retailing and urban planning.

Let's give "Joe B." a chance to explain the Jim Alger/Do-It-Center controversy. He deserves it.

You want some cheese to go with your whine?

You want some corruption (Congress of Neighborhood Councils leader Jim Alger) to go with your ignorance (No 2 HD leader Joe Barrett)?

But this idea is so ridiculous, it doesn't even matter. Let them pursue it...it will never be allowed. But it sounds good at the meeting, and gets people fired up, so fine.

Jim was talking about something that had already happened. It doesn't matter if it's "allowed," Jim did it anyway. Months ago!

At 9:00 p.m. you said I can't make it through the video, but I'll just assume you got it wrong

At 9:30 p.m. you said Man, you don't get my sense of humor. I watched it.

Which is it, Dogg, you couldn't make it through the video or you watched it? Do you even know what Jim Alger said?

Where is Mayor Sam on this issue?

So I don't wanna chum the waters.

Zuma, you churn waters when it comes to Mayor V. vs. Supervisor Zev, etc., but not when it comes to Jim Alger? Are you and Mayor Sam still on his payroll, even though he doesn't post ads anymore?
