Some Predictions for 2008

The historic San Pedro Red Car line will be extended to downtown Los Angeles.

The City of La Canada-Flintridge will find that Los Angeles County is holding a $255,088 check for them.

Former California GOP Chairman Shawn Steel will fall flat on his face in his election bid for the Republican National Committee.

For the third election cycle in a row, LA County GOP Chairman Linda Boyd will fail to keep her promise to field a Republican candidate in every Legislative and Congressional district in Los Angeles County.

Alan Rothenberg will get his wish fulfilled of being appointed to the Coliseum Commission.

Bernard Parks will be elected to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. Parks' strong opposition to LAX expansion will be a key component to his victory.

Businesswoman Noel Irwin Hentschel will run for Mayor of Los Angeles in 2009.

Due to the state budget crisis, the California High Speed Rail Bond Act will be deferred from the ballot for the third consecutive election cycle.

Voters will overwhelmingly reject the universal health care plan.

Opposition to Indian gaming Propositions 94, 95, 96 and 97 will come from an unlikely source- Indians who have been disenrolled from gaming tribes. Opposition funding will come from out-of-state casinos.

Rothenberg has the most powerful appointed position in the Los Angeles Commission world.

Only someone who doesn't understand this game would think he wished for the Coliseum Commission.

Go back and check your crystal ball, Sam.

Here's my prediction:

Matt Dowd and Zuma Dog will finalize their divorce and Matt will be free to marry Mike Hunt.

Gavin Newsome will perform the ceremony and Eric Garcetti will be best man.

Higby will, at long last, recognize that ZD has taken this blog to new lows and blow him (off).

Mayor Sam's Blog will soar to Number 1 once the dead wood is gone.

Give it up crybaby. Don't you know when I didn't post for a couple weeks the blog dropped out of the top 20 altogether.

Mayor Sam WITH ZD=Top 10

Sorry Charlie. You are not only a loser, you do not know how to analyze statistics before you are so vocally wrong.

No wonder you can't follow rules and are not in any type of elected position???

SO HATE AWAY...You seem to think without ZD the blog would skyrocket to #1...not realizing when I don't post threads, the ranking sinks.


The Britney Spears Blog gets more hits than mayor sam...go read that one.

If someone posts that Huizar flew to Florida for the Superbowl, last year to pick up shady money for the entire district....and if it triggers a D.A. investigation...does it matter if the blog is #6, or #2. DON'T YOU SEE YOUR OBSESSIVE COMPULSION?

Meanwhile, I hope Jim Alger doesn't get in trouble from his boss for posting here? I know his boss has already warned him out it.

And remember...it's deer season...be careful!

If Linda Boyd and her husband Doug would donate the $35,000 they got paid (personally) by Jimmy Hahn for the Republican Lincoln Club endorsement and the endorsements of all County Committee members, maybe the County Committee would have a few bucks in its coffers to help some reluctant candidates agree to run.

Over half of the comments in each and every thread are posted by Dave Elliott, aka ZD himself.

Is that how you measure blog rank?

And, who actually gives a rat's ass, anyway, except for Elliott and whoever (Higby?) is making some bucks here.

Long term, this blog has sunk to the depths with ZD and his pals hanging about.

Like Hoard Dean and Mike Huckabee, every flash in the pan has its ending...

I predict that in 2008, American citizens and voters of this city and state will revolt because of the kleptocratic city hall and state legislature. I predict a recall for Villar and Schwarzenegger...not to mention the defeat of Nunez.

We will vote down the phone tax, the term limits and the healthcare funding!

Schrillary will NOT be president; and Villar will have no political future! He is doomed after one term. He will NOT be re-elected!

So, Genius, who is going to beat me?

That Pinche Cabron Hertzberg?

Your resident blogger, Walter?

Laura Chick?

Ballless Zev, who wouldn't take a chance?

Forget it, I win in a landslide.

And, Jack Weiss will be my City Attorney and Wendy Greuel my Controller.

And you will still be a friend of Dave Elliott's. Make the best of it.

Who will beat you, cholo???


Answer: Anyone but a Mexican! And when I say
"Mexican', I am NOT referring to Americans of Mexican descent (who also hate Nunez and Villar). Villar and Nunez are reconquista Mexicans...not Americans!!! They should be deported! Maybe they can run for office in their own country...but ALL Americans want them out of our country!

This is America, or have you forgotten. Or did you flunk 2nd grade geography.

Jack Hoff's Official Predictions 2008

One of the Manson Family will die in prison and Captain Jack Sparrow will blog his condolences to “Charles and the rest of the family members on their loss.”

Mayor Sam’s weight will plateau a bit during the holidays, but after Subway fires Jarred (due to a sex scandal), the Mayor’s weight-loss motivation will kick in, he will lose another 50 lbs. and be named the new on-camera spokesman for El Pollo Loco.

For yet another year, Antonio Watch will have to wait to ride the big kid rides at Disneyland.

During an acid flashback, Joe Mailander will post picture after picture of his private parts on Mayor Sam while also doing some of his best blog writing ever.

After three years, Red Spot will finally pass his ESL class at the local community college, whereupon he will immediately be hired by La Opinion.

Hillary vs. Huckabee 2008 – V. P. feelers go out to Schwarzenegger by both parties. He turns both down.

Proposition 93 will pass.

Measure S won’t.

In 2008, California’s credit rating will take a hit on Wall Street, Schwarzenegger and the Dems will raise fees on students and the poor, but not seeing enough money coming into the till, will finally raise taxes on business. When business screams, the Gov. will float a $1 Trillion Bond proposal that should "solve everything."

1. Jack Hoff pens his magnum opus, a collection of love letters to Tony Villar on Mayor Sam and they're published by LA Weekly in a four part series.

2. Sheriff Baca will be caught in bed with Lindsay Lohan.

3. Mike Trujillo, Uli Sanchez and Jimmy Blackman leave the political world altogether to form a Christian mariachi band which makes it debut appearance on the FOX reality show "So I Married a Mexican"

4. Antonio Villaraigosa will convert to Judaism and tell Cardinal Mahoney "A bi gezunt."

5. Captain Jack's mother, unable to take it anymore, will finally have her son committed to a state mental hospital."

6. Eric Garcetti will shock friends and supporters alike when he resigns from office to host a talkradio show on KTALK Progressive Radio.

7. A well known gay, local elected official will reveal they are really heterosexual and had been living a lie for several years. A handful of gay activists will propose a recall but it will go nowhere.

8. Home Depot will settle their lawsuit with the city for $4.7 million and while nobody is watching the property will be acquired by the Spearmint Rhino Corporation who will quietly use a little quirk of planning law to open the world's largest gentleman's club in Sunland Tujunga. The resulting infusion of cash juices up the local community so much that Target, Fresh and Easy and Haines open stores there.
