Chasing The News Again

Remember us?
It would really be nice if our City Council members were pro-active in chasing down real problems our City is having than coming up with feel-good legislation based on whatever is in the news at the moment.

On the docket:

13-0056
Motion (Perry-Parks) requesting that the Office of Finance, the City's three pension fund systems, and any other City investment entity, report on the feasibility of divestment of any City funds from companies that produce, manufacture, sell, or market assault weapons, high volume ammunition magazines, high caliber ammunition, and related equipment. 


Community Impact Statement: None submitted


Considering that the City's pensions are in huge financial trouble, it might be fiscally negligent to divest these securities, assuming they own them to begin with. Since President Obama has set his sights on the NRA, gun sales have skyrocketed. The stocks of these firms must be through the roof. Now that's a fiscally prudent move for the retirees.

There you go again, Higby, attacking black leaders who actually stood up to the machine against which you personally rail every minute of the day.

Methinks that if they were white, you'd be championing them like you used to do with Krekorian.

You're not a fan of Herb Wesson, either I take it.

I can personally attest that Higby is repellent toward blacks. Not Latinos, but blacks only.

When is Bernard Parks termed out of the horseshoe? Not soon enough. He will be getting his LAPD Chief's pension, plus a pension for his council service, so he may not want to run for office again, considering that there will be a very crowded political playing field that will be largely occupied by Jan Perry when she loses her Mayoral bid and goes after a state Assembly seat. Wanna call me a racist just because I happen to think these two clowns have always been part of the problem and never the solution? Have at it.

Sunland/Tujunga? Isn't it Sunland-Tujunga? Would someone use a slash to throw off their identity, Michael? I believe I have heard these words before.

Michael just learned that in today's america, when you are white and say anything critical of black politicians it means you are a racist.
