"Machete" a Summer Blockbuster?

Acclaimed film director Robert Rodriguez has a message for Arizona in this trailer for "Machete", in theaters later this year. Arizona's controversial SB1070 that was recently signed into law by base pandering Republican Governor Jan Brewer, has sparked a rash of boycotts aimed at Arizona, including one enacted today by the City of Los Angeles.

Rivaling the danger of any of our various social component tolerating hate crime is a social component tolerating parodies of hate crime. I'm disappointed. It's not funny, it's irresponsible. I'd distance myself from this basura--far.

panic is.

How many signatures Phil? David Hernandez is asking for people to mail back the recall petitions so they can be counted. You have been saying that your mailbox is full of signed recall petitions everyday. Which is it?

Let's get busy and replace the City Council. They just showed their ignorance and how they are truly good for nothing! They are taking L.A. down! They only know how to pass insane motions that have nothing to do with our city while they let us burn to feather their own egos. Hahn and AV top the list of idiots. Most should be recalled and/or kicked out of office. Remember this when it's time to vote. Let's kick them out. We deserve better.

Does this mean we should boycott LA businesses because we oppose Council's rate hike votes?

"Janice Hahn for Lt. Gov."- get her out of L.A.---please.

The CMs do everything half-assed. If they want to declarae a boycott, then boycott, not pick-and-choose.

They are so lame. The pandering to Latinos might be understandable, considering how poorly they normally act.

But why shift away from budget and city business THAT ACTUALLY MATTERS TO Los Angeles' well-being? Maybe they can't resist the opportunity to shift heat away from their own failings.

How about that Ed Reyes?- He continues to say and do things for votes;
He said he'd be deported if he went to Arizona? His loss is our gain. But he's so wrong, but doesn't let accuracy get in his way.

Reyes ahould try studying what he's going to say in advance to be sure it's credible instead of adding more distortions that show how dumb he really is. He's so foolish but seems to think it's a good thing. He must have some thick skin to not feel the comments on incompetence and his blantant lies. Just a lot of plain stupidity.

And if an aide prepped him, that guy or woman needs to be looking for a new job. Really, they all should do that.

And Koretz just lost all his already-wobbly brownie points as a newcomer to the Counci with his incisive analysis of history. Welcome to the ship of fools.
So how much more has the L.A. deficit increased in this lost day of work on reducing the city payroll? It's an example of their Typical choice of priorites.

Has the actual city layoff figure risen above 100 yet? Tony's only been talking about layoff since his April 2009 State of the City speech- glad he's not a fireman or there'd be a city full of ashes by the time he's out of office.

in l.a.
