TGIF Morning Brief on Betty's First Soulvine Tirade of 2014

 LA Wave Newspaper Columnist Betty Pleasant and South LA Political Officials, are disappointed with Mayor Eric Garcetti for not bring home "Promise Funds", for their respective communities.
 LA Wave Newspaper Columnist Betty Pleasant vents her Soulvine Outrage in the direction of Mayor Garcetti. 
Mayor Garcetti absorbs the "Message of Promise" from Lameduck President Barack "H" Obama.

Memo to Mayor Eric Garcetti, you have a outrage constituent and some disappointed public officials in South LA.
As a loyal Prograssive, you travel to Washington D.C., for another act of income redistribution via President Barack "H" Obama's "Promise Funds", for five Collectivist Dependentcrat-leaning cities and what awaits you upon your return home? Four paragraphs of outrage via Betty's latest Soulvine (with thorns for Mayor Garcetti). We provide this excerpt of Betty's first 2014 tirade.
Pete Demetriou, of the CBS radio affiliate KNX 1070, announced Wednesday morning that five specific Los Angeles neighborhoods will be eligible to receive these new federal funds. Sit down because you are about to be shocked. These five neighborhoods are Pico-Union, Westlake, Hollywood, East Hollywood and Koreatown!!! What’s wrong with this picture?! Your Mayor Eric Garcetti is in the White House Thursday kicking off this Promise Zone thing and he’s expected to be back here in time to serve as grand marshal of CORE’s 29th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Kingdom Day Parade on Jan. 20. Now, I ask you, what’s wrong with that picture?! (lets remember that Betty was a "Sister for Wendy" in the recent mayoral election).

Stop the presses. Wait a minute. An angry city official has just cornered me and he has something to say about this outrage. Ninth District Councilman Curren Price said: “While I am always happy to see Los Angeles receive attention and additional federal dollars, it is very disappointing to see the city’s poorest communities excluded once again. The federal government’s “Promise Zone” designation was designed to saturate the nation’s highest concentration of poverty in the cities with more than one out of three households living below the poverty rate — a rate nearly 10 points higher than any other region in the city. And yet our community will not benefit from this investment of up to a half a billion dollars. As the person entrusted with representing the needs of South Los Angeles residents, I am compelled to express my disappointment with a program that has failed to include our community. I urge federal officials, as well as our mayor as he lobbies Washington for more funding — to reconsider their selection process now and moving forward. South Los Angeles residents have promise — we just need a chance.”

While Betty was keyboarding her outrage, the likes of CD 9 City Clowncil Central Committee Member Curren Price and former Watts Clowncilwoman, turned Congresswoman Janice Hahn, went on the record to the "Old Gray Collectivist Hag on Spring Street" (aka LA Obama Times), regarding their collective disappointment that areas of South LA they respectively represent, were left out of the proposed "Promise".

But in retrospect, the likes of Betty, Price and Hahn should focus their disappointment on the failure of Trillions of Redistributed Tax Dollars spent on a supposed, Five decades-long "War on Poverty" (or 50 year endeavor to grow government, but I digress) and its erosion of the Spirit of Self Empowerment, within the African-American Community. Thus Betty, maybe the "next chance" for community renewal should originate from within, not from another tried and fail Act of Redistribution from Washington D.C.

Your thoughts ..............

Scott, to my suprise Boyle Heights is no longer a poor community, what does that mean to us? No more afforable housing? Maybe Maria Gabildo should start building beautiful condos in Boyle Heights at prime rate. All the yard sales with all that I guess are making money in Boyle Heights. Forget about being the mural capital of the world, we are the Garage sales capital of the world, down soto, euclid evergreen, venders out of the trunks of cars selling what ever. But do they pay taxes?
