Saturday morning mimosa

I'll now pass the mic to Joseph Mailander.

This is a very strange time for Los Angeles, which now resembles New York City in the seventies: a nearly bankrupt, fully corrupt, failing citystate.

The Mayor should obviously resign, but he won't.

Mailhandler should resign from blogging, but he won't either.

What is this, his 19th blog?

Anyone who thinks the mayor is stepping down without a push from Feds is living in fantasy land and doesn't know a thing about the real Antonio, or just about any politician.

Villaraiogsa made a gentleman's deal with the D.A.'s office that he wouldn't run for Governor and then he wouldn't be indicted, either.

It works like that. So until a higher political power decides to push him out the door, he's staying.

Joseph, once again, hits it out of the ballpark with this one, and hammers Tony with a lot of inconvenient truths. Oh, for a mayor and a city government that actually worked for us instead of against us!

Great work, Mr. Mailander.

Spot on. More departments headed by the club of "interims:". Mercedes Marquez left for Washington DC; Bratton for NYC; Boks out; Nahai out; Adelman out. That's five with no permanent appointments. Goldberg just appointed an "interim" AGM to replace one of her own picks who left.

Better yet the City should resign from the Mayor. Los Angeles as a city is a fallacy, always has been. We are not New York, Chicago or San Francisco. Never will be.

Time for a City of Hollywood, City of Venice, City of Sunland-Tujunga, City of Van Nuys, City of Lincoln Heights, City of Wilmington, et al and one little village named El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Angeles del Río de Porciúncula.

What a week!

Zuma Dogg threatens to shut down his blog unless he is paid. He does it. He doesn't get paid. And he resumes blogging anyhow.

Mailander starts his 15th blog in three years, but still keeps bothering us here.

When is Phil going to branch out on his own? After he gets those 240,000 valid signatures? Or when he gets a 15 minute break from working his "entertainer" job at Six Flags.

Is Phil that scary old guy ("Six Flags, More Flags, More Fun!") on those commercials?

The sad news is that up until 1932,
we were the City of Tujunga! Los Angeles annexed us by having a hoard of voters move here long enough to vote for annexation. They all moved out the day after the election.

Why in the world would the Mayor resign? He has accomplished his only goal, which is to stay in office.

The overwhelming majority of people in this City pay no attention to local politics. He may even be elected to higher office, because the media, for the most part, simply re-publishes his press releases.

Plus, what is he supposed to do if he resigns? He has no qualifications or experience that would do any good in the real world.

Hey you all forgot about sleazy Huizy losing people to. The poor young girl Celina has left. Good for her finally coming to her senses. How many employees is that in two years something like 18 staffers. Huizar is going to campaign and I hear there is a bombshell video that will haunt him and ruin his chances.

I sure hope that when Jose Huizar was LAUSD school board member, there wasn't $15 million dollars of "grease" sent through the school board to make sure the decision makers hands were greasy and the purchase of Taylor Yards would slip through their fingers, allowing Mereulo to get the deal while the LAUSD board secretary ran interference. That would have sucked!

Now that the Meurelo-Maddux revenue stream has gone dry with recent bankruptcy, the mayor needs new streams of revenue and influence. So off to the public money off LAUSD and DWP. The mayor already has control of the school board, and it's not a random coincidence that the mayor's ally, David Freeman, is back in control of DWP with Nahai's departure.

Obama thought he neutered Hillary by making her Sec of State, but as Obama tanks with G-force velocity, Team Hillary waits in the wings, waiting for an encore curtain call.

Villaragiosa would STILL be part of any Team Hillary revival effort (I guess partners in crime stick together through thick and thin).

And I guess that's because Bill and Hillary (CLINTON) have enough juice to keep Antonio from being indicted so they can use him as their "Latino Mayor of L.A." mascot, again, since that still carries a lot of weight with the people they need it to carry weight with.

Just out of curiosity, why do you visit Mayor Sam? You don't like Zuma, you don't like Joseph Mailander, you don't like Phil. Who or what do you like?

I love your Clinton conspiracy. Never having thought of it myself yet being a serious Clinton fan, I find it to be intriguing and in fact, an incredibly awesome theory.

That's not a bad role for your Mayor to have either. If there is anyone in the city who could find fault with that, then I guess they're Bush/Cheney kind of freaks and fuck 'em. Most of the city will be proud. This will be the first time I ever agreed with the stupid masses.
