What "The People" Are Fighting For This Week At City Hall


You can read comment 91 on this story's comment page, or I posted the whole comment here: http://zumadogg.blogspot.com

Thanks to Mayor Sam for adding me as an official contributor. Hope I didn't overdo it with my "shock and awe" posting this weekend. Here is a re-cap of the stories I posted that you can read below (See Thurs - Sun), that are also what my friends and I will be fighting for at City Hall, this week, on TV 35.


They are finally getting to this today, from January 15, 2002: Councilmember Jack Weiss, TODAY, called for a comprehensive review of the City's policy on reducng or "waiving" special event costs in an effort to address budget concerns and the possible inappropriate "waivers" of fees and costs for events that may NOT need or deserve financial support from the City. Weiss has asked for an analysis of the total cost of special events in the City, including lost revenue and expenses for police and emergency services, and for a review of other Cities' waiver policies. (Full story below, plus see "Waivers/Payback" story)


Can't wait to find out how much it's gonna cost to fight so hard just to keep the dead issue of City Council's own Term Extentions alive on the November ballot? We all get to find out soon. Cause on Friday, L.A. City Attorney, Rocky Delgadillo, had to jam through a request for a "closed door session" to break the good news as to the legal cost of this important and beneficial issue for the constituents, today.

READER COMMENT: Let's face it folks- Measure R isn't about Council Members being able to find the water fountain in City Hall in four years- it's about PENSIONS. With 10 years of City service, doesn't one get a pension? Two terms equals 8 years, but a third term equals pension. We the taxpayers are tired of being fleeced. (See "R" stories below)


"The middle class is getting reamed. There are a lot of paid advocates for the poor and lower income people; the rich can take care of themselves, but no one is out there for the middle class." - Noel Weiss

ZD hears "The 4128 Apartments at Whitsett" is the next Linclon Place: 20 tenants kicked out, without payment per order of the Planning Dept. Wendy Greuel does nothing to stick up for her district. So, Noel Weiss and Zuma Dogg have to. (See story below.)

Daily News....If there were any doubts about the viability and potential clout of neighborhood councils, the battle over Proposition R should have put them to rest....It was leaders of neighborhood councils who directed the assault against the measure, which would give City Council members a third four-year term in office. The resulting court battle emboldened them and will serve as a focal point for the neighborhood councils to rally around in the weeks leading up to the Nov. 7 election....As the debate over Proposition R continues, the issue and the way it was handled contain valuable lessons.

City officials should have learned that efforts to short-circuit the process should be undertaken only with great risk

Antonio again using students. Angelides endorsement bs rally.

Students attending Los Angeles public schools are not supposed to be used as props for partisan political events. To make matters worse, students missed class when they were not supposed to — all the while enduring political speeches in a steaming auditorium. One group of students had to stand on stage for about an hour, and one girl fainted on stage.

What exactly happened at Foshay Learning Center, near downtown? Was it a cynical, improper manipulation of students? Or perhaps sloppy planning? Or one more sign of a disconnect between the mayor's office and the school district?

Having the event at a school in the first place was a potential problem. Board policy states, "Schools may not be used as a forum for political events — neither individual political campaigns nor political issues."

You're the idiot. Special event waivers were implemented to help non profit organizations who didn't have the money to pay the fee. Why should a corporate sponsor, i.e. LA Marathon get thousands waived when they have tons of corporate sponsors who they profit from and can afford the fee? These waivers have been abused and getting worst. Daily News did a story that puts it in perspective. Money going down the drain that we can hire more cops with.

Billion-dollar plans set for 'Times Square West'
Entertainment complex pictured as downtown hub

By Beth Barrett
Staff Writer

In a bold bid to brand Los Angeles as a world-class live entertainment center, the owner of Staples Center detailed plans Tuesday for a $1 billion, 5.5 million-square-foot sports-entertainment-residential complex that would be one of the largest developments in downtown history.

The LA Live development by the Anschutz Entertainment Group - scheduled to make the formal announcement Thursday at the project's groundbreaking with Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and other city leaders in attendance - would include retail, live theater, premiere movies, restaurants and housing.

It is envisioned as becoming "Times Square West" and the permanent home for a variety of award shows with a Grammy museum that could include an annual "induction" ceremony, in addition to facilities for a major sports/entertainment broadcasting company yet to be disclosed.

"We think L.A. should be the event capital of the world," Timothy Leiweke, president of the company owned by Denver billionaire Philip Anschutz, said in an interview with Daily News editors and reporters.

"Award shows, tourism and content are going to be the most important industries we have. We're not going to be the steel city, we're not going to be the chip city, we're unfortunately not going to be the new technology city, because we missed that boat."

Leiweke said LA Live - a complex with the square footage of downtown Long Beach - is envisioned to dovetail with a proposed 1,100-room, 56-story Hilton hotel adjacent to the ailing Convention Center.

The hotel has become controversial since developers Apollo Real Estate and Wolff Urban Development entered into a proposed deal with the city that includes a $16 million loan from the Community Redevelopment Agency, $4 million in fee waivers and the forfeiting of nearly a quarter-billion dollars in room taxes the hotel is projected to generate over 25 years.

Q: I want to naturalize, how do I get started?

A: First, get CIS form N-400, Application for Naturalization, by calling 1-800- 870-3676. You can get the application as well at the USCIS website http://uscis.gov/graphics/formsfee/forms/.

Q: How much is the filing fee?

A: The filing fee is now $320, plus $70 biometric fee of $390. You may send one check or money order made out to the CIS.

The CIS can waive your naturalization filing fee, but not the biometric (fingerprint) fee. To get the fee waiver, you must prove an ''inability to pay.'' The CIS will consider whether you have a disability, your household income and whether you have received public benefits. Unlike most applications for permanent residence, to naturalize you need not proof you can support yourself without public assistance. You can become a U.S. citizen even if you are poor or on welfare. If the CIS denies your fee waiver request, the agency will send your application back asking that you pay the filing fee.

Council Is Urged to OK Hotel Deal
Two city officials back plan to provide public subsidies and loans to developers of the high-rise. Critics call the proposal misleading.
By Patrick McGreevy
Times Staff Writer

September 8, 2005

The Los Angeles City Council's top two advisors have recommended that it approve $266 million in public subsidies and loans for the developers of a 55-story hotel next to the city's Convention Center, a much higher amount than previously disclosed. The proposal from City Administrative Officer Bill Fujioka and Chief Legislative Analyst Gerry Miller sets the stage for the council to adopt a financial package that includes allowing the hotel to keep $246 million in hotel bed taxes that it is expected to generate in its first 25 years.

The two city officials, however, characterized the bed-tax rebate as a $62-million subsidy because that is the amount the developers can raise immediately for construction by borrowing against the 25-year flow of tax receipts. Although that is the "present value" of the subsidy, the city would actually forgo $246 million.

Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Assn., criticized the city for trying to present the deal in a way that might be more palatable to the public.

"It's misleading," he said.

Councilman Bernard C. Parks, however, said he was not put off by the final deal, saying the bed tax being returned is new revenue the city would not get if a hotel were not built.

"It basically pays for itself," said Parks, who is chairman of the council's Budget and Finance Committee.

The city is also proposing $20 million in loans and building fee waivers.

Building a 1,100-room hotel would help the city attract more business to the Convention Center, which is not earning enough to cover $32 million in annual debt payments incurred for a $500-million expansion, Fujioka and Miller argued in a report released Wednesday.

The city's general fund is subsidizing the Convention Center debt payments by more than $10 million annually, officials said.

"The Los Angeles Convention Center has not been able to attract the large-scale conventions and events that its competitors have been able to attract because of the lack of a convention center headquarters hotel that provides ample hotel rooms within close proximity to the Convention Center," Fujioka and Miller wrote.

City officials said a development team that includes the L.A. Arena Land Co., a firm owned by Denver billionaire Phillip Anschutz, is obtaining $180 million in private loans for the project, but that the city financing is needed for the project to go forward.

Critics of the deal, some of whom have sued to block it, say it is unfair to other hotels that have to compete with one receiving public subsidies. Coupal, who is not part of the lawsuit, said there is also the risk that the subsidies will fail to make the hotel and the convention center profitable.

"The fact that private capital won't come in and build the hotel should be a red flag to city officials that this project may not be viable," he said.

In arguing for the City Council to approve the deal in the next few weeks, Fujioka and Miller also said it is an important element of the $1-billion "L.A. Live" development of restaurants, theaters, offices and shops being proposed by Anschutz near Staples Center.

The same sister that served as Alatorre's treasurer and was responsible for the largest ehtics fine at the time - that is before Padilla took that distinction.

And whats with charging to get into a carnival that is being held on a public street! This isn't a community of limtless resources. San Gabriel and Alhambra - two very more affluent communities than El Sereno, don't charge admission for their fairs! This fair was held in front of a Food4Less - shouldn't that be a clue as to the economic standing of this community.

What's the beef about festivals? They bring communities together, get people working together, calm hostilities, give kids and families (those that don't "summer" in Aspen) something to do during the long hot summers. Part of at least some of these "waivers" are things like, "OK, we won't charge you for the cost of having a traffic officer block the street, or beat patrols spend more time here than they normally would, so people don't get killed." All something any responsible city would do regardless -- AND would get sued for negligence if they didn't -- and they know it. It's a paper game between city departments to offset their budgets, and ping each other's for.

Most of these would never take place it the sponsors had to pay the full freight, or attendees had to pay $20 bucks a head to take part. Most sponsors would never cough up the thousands and tens of thousands of extra bucks to get them going.

Don't get all caught up in the shell game and hyperbole. The city "waiving" fees on paper, that they would never receive in the first place isn't costing YOU the taxpayer tons more money.

They bring in vendors and visitors alike from around the area, promote local businesses and artists, and add a little life to otherwise drab urban living.

If this is chapping your hids, then FORGET ever having an NFL franchise here. That's just a weekly sports "festival" for half the year, too.

Not much crowing about how the loudmouth, undermandated NC leaders are going to kick City Council's butt at the ballot box, now. (Because of course, the NC screamers have NO following at home to go back to and rally). Their ONLY play was to try and keep it OFF the ballot, and win in court.

Is everyone getting this, the NC wailers and moaners (repping 100 stakeholders each, at best), didn't WANT their own stakeholders to be able to cast their THOUSANDS of votes for or against Prop R, based on their own understanding of the plusses and minuses of the measure.

They opted for LEGAL, not deomocratic remedies (because, of course, many of them are ATTORNEYS who feel the common masses are too STUPID or easily manipulated to understand what's BEST for them (i.e., having non-representative NCs make the call, instead of them).

Of course that brings up the question of, if they're so easily manipulated and NCs have $50K a year to use, why the NCs aren't MANIPULATING their own stakeholders (not more than 1 or two out of every hundred, to better and greater involvement).

The mini-me-too NC loudmouths are the one's responsible for any costs associated with legal wrangling, plus the carpetbagging terms limits organization meddling in L.A. affairs.

Take the costs of appealing the Prop R ruling by our ELECTED and MANDATED city council members out ofthe the un-used millions NCs haven't spent in their local communities for the past 3 years, the funds they're NOT using for outreach and NOT using for community improvements and NOT using for anything by meeting snacks and NUSA-type useless junkets.

Ask the NC leaders if their communities want these festivals. .. many are co-sponsored by local neighborhood councils. Of course, since most of them can't even get 1 percent to vote for their board members, it might be tough to get a real good perspective from them as to whether or not their neighborhoods want these events to take place. The test may be if they're well attended and supported by the community (if not, then don't let them come back next time).

But, they are "waivers", remember?

That means NOT city funds going INTO the costs, just money the city isn't getting for letting communities celebrate something locally.

If some, a vendors, makes some money by bringing a service that attracts more people (carnival rides, artists wares, whatever), and the city doesn't get EXTRA money from them - $100 bucks for letting someone sell things on city property - so what. Why did the city deserve a "cut" of it anyway? Because they had a cop stationed at one end (on call to go away as soon as there's an emergency in the precinct).

And why should the city be getting tons of money for letting people use the streets, parks, and community centers that they ALREADY supposedly own and pay for, in an organized, peaceful, and community spirit-building endeavor?

When the city "waives" the fees to the "dog and pony show" sponsors...it's not like the city doesn't have to pay for all the cops, fire, parking, clean-up, etc. costs associtated with the event.

Point is, the "waivers" were reated for non-profit, community organizations who could never get one of these TRUE communityevents off the ground without some help from the city. I don't even want my money going to that...but i would't stand in the way of that.

But I AM standing in the way of the money going to commercial entities -- yes, like NFL, Vanity Fair, KTLA and especially that Labor Day scam on the people of the community....charging money to enter (these "waivers" are ONLY, ONLY, ONLY for public events and in the community's interest).

Then after the organizers make all the booth, attendance and sponsorship money, they hand the expense tab for this money-magnet masquarade to the taxpayer's of Los Angeles. And then when a REAL non-profit, from the community needs money...it ain't there, y'all.

The buzzword of this election season is: "Cahoots, y'all!"

And of course, the zed-dogg knows this is true because someone (who got kicked off the organizing committee, our didn't get to sleep with the sponsoring organization's PR woman like he wanted to), sent you an "expose" e-mail pissing on the whole thing, right?

And e-mails are NEVER wrong, or vindictive, or retaliatory! Not in L.A. public affairs, anyway.

It couldn't be that the costs for people attending (if they even existed) were only made a bit lower by the city waiving fees, making it possible for the event to happen in the first place.

In most cases, the city can't "waive" enough fees to absorb all the organizing costs, and someone has to pay something. Raise all sponsorships, so it's free to everyone, and you start losing sponsors. Lose sponsors and you have to raise other sponsors rates, then lose more (or go BACK to charging people to attend).

Catch 44 (that's a double catch 22).

You also never know until people show if you can even break even. Who covers the losses if you don't? Not the city, not the sponsors. If you luck out and make a handful of bucks, people say you're "profiting" from the event at city expense (but the organizers, volunteers, bare-wallet community groups are the ONLY one's on the line, if things go into the red)!

How many large-scale community events you planned Dogg-breath?

Further, by subjecting these children to conditions that can be discribed as abusive (Standing for long period in hot confines). Mr. Trujillo should be fired for falsehoods and for using children in a blatant political event. Lastly, the Times should investigate whether someone should be prosecuted for child endangerment.

Ok the NC haters have come back to post. They're still whining. Grow UP!!

Bitter Bernie waived all the stuff for the rich USC students and alumni's for football. Rosendahl waived fees for a farmers market until December in his rich area.
Events like the LA Marathaon that has fees waived as much as $100,000 has tons of corporate sponsors. Why can't they pay the fees? Because Yvonne Burke's husband runs it and he was campaigning for Antonio. Secondly, many times the COMMUNITY has no clue events are taking place in their neighborhood cause the clowncil doesn't tell them. A lot of times these SPONSORS or event organizers are from OUTSIDE THE DAMN COMMUNITY. Why did Huizar allow a carnival to take place on Cesar Chavez last year from OUTSIDERS WHO made money off the people in the community and packed up and left? Yet he waived their fee?

Why has the CLA report from 2003 that has recommendations how to streamline and has rules in place so the special event waivers don't get out of hand been sitting in Budget Finance for 3 years??? Bitter Bernie didn't want it to full council floor. The CLA report also states that CLOWNCIL MEMBERS NEED TO AGENDIZE IN TIMELY MANNER BEFORE EVENT.

Don't HATE the NCs, 12:12 (am in one), just HATE the irony that a handful of the LEAST-mandated, and LEAST-productive of the leaders of (some) of them have somehow convinced (heavy on the CON) a few out-of-touch types (this blog, for one) into thinking they represent some kind of army of unhappy voters. . . when they have no troops, except each other (an army of little generals ill-equipped to do anything but bark orders at each other), and they spend all their time lobbing unfriendly fire at the people who are SUPPOSED to be their allies in improving the city, their elected (by 20-times as many votes in their own NC areas) councilmembers, and accusing them of graft, when there's hardly an NC alive that could withstand a Chick-let audit.

But I LOVE the NCs that do the real work, outreach-outreach-outreach, improving their communities, looking out for the fair and equitable delivery of city services (jus' like the charter be saying).

I saw your response. I understand some of thing you are saying, but, nevertheless, this thing is being abused. alot of the things you say should simply be applied to the smaller, non-profits within the community it was created for. At least it is about the best argument you could show in defense of the "waivers", but again, it's being abused and people are profiting at the expense of the community. If it's true that admission was fee to public. That needs correcting, but the sirit of the problem of all the other points remain. If you can spin me on how this isn't happening (abuse, commercial/individual profits from these), I wanna hear it. It's not like I'm TRYING to create these issues or scandals. If I got pursuaded with innacurate info/emails -- I WANT TO BE THE FIRST TO KNOW. But based on the multiple people who filled me in on this issue, I did feel it needed addressed in the way I did.

REGARDING: Dockweiler's post & Others: "One bitter guy sent ZD an email and I am your tool...everyone send ZD emails, he'll print anything."

My reply is: I walked into City Hall not knowing a thing about any councilmember, beyond Bill Rosendahl, who I was going to see to speak to him about the ban on selling insense and shirts on Venice Boardwalk.

Then, we (Matt Dowd, Michael Hunt and I) were gonna go down to speak for public comment. They were gonna drop me back off, and I was done with this one time favor to help raise awareness.

But, unfortunatley, City Council didn't overturn the ordinance just because the three of us made a compelling argument. So, we had to return to provide some new information, and ask again.

And, while I was sitting there waiting for my public comment, I heard everyone else's public comment (and all the other problems from people in different areas of the City) and they all kinda had one thing in common: They felt City Council was shady.

Then, some of those people starting seeing more of me on TV 35...then KABC...then L.A. Times...then more TV 35...then VH1...PBS...Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Matt Drudge, Doug McIntyre/KABC...LA Daily News...

So people from across the City from all different ages and ethnicities started approaching me in person at City Hall, by phone and email, to tell me their stories, in hopes I would talk about it to raise public awareness.

And now, everytime I speak or post on an issue, people contact me with additional information, and things snowball.

Like in this Labor Day, El Segundo thing in Jose's 14th district.

I saw some posts on my Mayor Sam story, "What Will Will Be Fighting For..." regarding this "Special Waiver Fee" concern that tied in with a Labor Day festival that happened to be in Huizar's district.

And one poster is claiming, "Yeah, one guy is mad at someone involved with the event, and is using ZD as a "tool" for his axe to grind.

So many of you are just getting to know me for the first time, lately, on Mayor Sam. And here's a very important point, because it gets to the true root of the problem with The Mayor and City Council:

First of all, like I said, I knew nothing about City politics when I walked into chambers for the first time in April of this year.

No ONE person sends me one email and triggers a call for a City wide investigation. There is TRUE outrage in many districts. Someone mentioned this "special waiver" thing, once to me, a couple months ago. Then I started seeing it on the agenda. Then I commented on it. More people followed up, pointing me to other places to look. (Many of the times, I'm bringing things up that have already had newspaper coverage, sometimes years ago, and it still goes on.

So, when something finally cathces my attention from one, or two people, luckily I know other people who I can follow up with questions. And like I say, the outrageous things I've spoken about on TV 35, National radio shows and Mayor Sam is nothing new.

Politicians can THINK all you have to do is send ZD one random email, and he'll jump on the cause. This allows you to keep ignoring the public outrage.

For some reason, when I start mentioning it, it gets more attention. Maybe because I am so compelled to scream it on all these media outlets.

Some are wondering at Huizar's office: Man, what's Zuma Dogg have against Jose. NOTHING. My first few times at City Hall, I admired Jose, so much, cause here was a pretty youthful looking guy to already be a Councilmember. And he went to MIT. And he used to give me shout-outs on my camera. So Jose...if you are concerned about this. My man...for a white guy from Venice Beach...I sure have been contacted a lot by people in your district who are really outraged that you don't seem to be standing up for your constituents. And all it looks like is that you, AND A BUNCH OF OTHER COUNCILMEMBERS, NOT JUST YOU, are just muppets to the financial muppet master, Mayor Antonio Villagrossa.

Dude! I'm telling you, I have no more motivation to be spending all my cell phone minutes, and doing all this research and typing about stuff in your district that doesn't even effect me. So if YOU care (and the fact that local politicains are basically stealing elections in this city, so there is no need to care what people think/no accountablity) -- for some reason, a whole lot of people from your district (and these people always represent others) contacting Zuma Dogg about your shadiness and cahootness with the Mayor.

But just to show it's not personal with you, it's not personal with Wendy Greuel, either, who must be wondering what she did to me to endure such wrath from ZD. Now it's true, I think she has a lousy persoanlity and is way too uptight when she fills in for Eric during Council meetings. (Whereas, I get more comments about how Ed Reyes did such a great job rolling with ZD's six minute MacArthur Park Public Comment fiasco.)

However, someone's off-putting, uptight nature would never be enough to have me run against you in the next Council election, and post that "Middle Class Homeowners" story from Saturday. It's because the more time I spent at City Hall, the more people that said, "Zuma, you gotta come to one of these Planning Commission meetings in Wendy Greuel's district." (NOT just Noel Wiess, just like NOT one email about CD 14 Labor Day Fundraiser, I mean Community event.)

I'M NOT SMART ENOUGH TO ONLY HEAR SOMEONE MENTION THESE COMPLEX ISSUES JUST ONE TIME FOR ME TO GET IT. Ask Matt Dowd. It's when I start hearing things a few times, I start to put two and two together, then start asking around and when I feel there's a real reason to get pissed off, I do -- get pissed off.

So the point is: Mayor and City Council...I know I've been the biggest thorn in many of your sides since...EVER! And I'm telling you, if you and your nightmare issue makes it on the ZD radar, you should pay attention to what the people are saying. Not trying to isolate some single source leak to try and prevent it in the future. The only way to prevent it in the future is to start being aware that you cannot operate in the way you have in the past. I've never called for any legal action against anyone for these "Special Event Waiver" abuse outcries. THE POINT OF WHY I GO ON TV, RADIO AND BLOGS IS TO TRY AND GET YOU TO SIMPLY START BEHAVING MORE ETHCICALLY. (I even said just, "more" ethcially. Not even totally ethcially...because that's like asking a heroine addict to quit cold turkey. The whole City/System really would shut down.

But dudes/Councilmembers...the old days are over. Look how all this shiznit jumps off so quickly and snowballs. Meanwhile, NOTHING I posted was anything new or exclusive. The Jack Weiss comments were from 2002, there were newspaper articles addressing concerns with the waivers, all I did was look at a flyer for a Labor Day fair that was BEGGING for money from the community (see flyer)...talked to three or four people. Posted a comment, not even a story. More people piled on their stories. And that's it. You can try and find one little factual error, that doesn't change a thing about the fraud, waste and abuse issue, and try and discredit one person who you think contacted me to use me as a tool, for his own personal anger. But then you'd just be missing the whole F-ing point as to why there is Public outrage for you guys at City Hall, and Public outpouring of information and support for me.

But when you run the polls with your own staff; find people to volunteer their homes for your non-documented, paid homies to gather at, for the bus to pick them up, then vote under the names of those who didn't show up at the polls (since nobody checks IDs), I guess it doesn't really matter what your constituents think. And that's the REAL problem. By stealing elections, all accountability is removed, and it's gonna be a very uncomfortable election season between now, November, then March.

Oh yeah, Sorry! I said, El Segundo, instead of El Sereno.

I guess that means my whole premise is invalid and there were no impropriaties.

Again, I'm gonna make little errors like that, because look how much content I'm churning out.

Again, point is, stop trying to defend yourself on a minor thing like that, cause when you attack my typos, instead of actual concept of the problem, it shows all the readers that there is nothing substantive to your defense, and ZD must be right.

So thanks for correcting my typo. Now, you'll say the difference between "El Segundo" and "El Sereno" is more than just a typo...but it's not like I said $1 million dollars, when it's $1 dollar, or saying, "So and so voted "yes", when they really voted "no" -- and the nature/intent/spirit of the whole story is wrong. So again, to clarify...all the shady bullshit regarding Councilmember Huizar and the shady, un-ethical and possibly illegal/prosecutable things that went on in his district this past labor day happened in "El Sereno", not "El Segundo."

And now, I'm gonna post a follow-up story with all the new information, ten times more damaging, as a follow-up.

So shut the fuck up, before your boss gets mad at you for making things worse, cry baby-no leg to stand on- soon to be out of politics, if not thrown in jail over this shit bitch!

Is it because of a certain proposition or because they've outlived their usefulness? Or is it because that's the way it is in politics. Bugger the Mayor's Office Boy. I hope the lad uses condoms.

So the sot bloggers are after the Dogg? Hmmm. Bleedin' pussys to go after a Dogg. While I realize I am annoying, at least I get under some skin and irritate the hell out of someone in City Hall. As does the Dogg. That was the first part of the plan. Methinks it working, savvy?

There IS no citywide outrage over waivers. Many times as many people benefit from them, expect them, and appreciate them than have ever complained, or ever will.

Rational people -- and ESPECIALLY conservatives (Mayor Sam!!!), would cheer at the thought of people NOT having to pay any more of these disguised TAXES to the city to use the people's own city property and services for community events. The city tears enough out of our hides in property taxes and fees for other services, they have no business ripping off do-gooder groups trying to promote their communities this way.

Rule #1, unschooled dogg-manure-for-brains is, when you get a few dozen complaints in the city, it's usually one moron with a couple of friends or AA buddies getting riled up over the brewskies.

"Hello, my name is Angus, I'm an alcoholic, and I have this petition I'd like you all to sign about fee waivers!" (Oh, and I'm buying after the meeting).

Also, ZD still knows nothing about City of L.A. (and he ain't learning fast).

If you don't know El Sereno from El Segundo, shut your mouth and go back to watch Charlie's Angeles reruns (with one hand) in Mama's basement apartment, like a good arrested development adolescent. El Segundo is not only miles from El Sereno, it several cultures removed.

(That's not a typo, that's a "marijuana moment"). A "typo" would be Serneo, Soreno, Sireno.

We had one moron in Council snorting substance's off the people's desk a few years ago (that we know of), let's stop that mule train from going any further, okay?

Very well argued, and un-predictable response. You are winning over the masses with your compelling points. And you didn't follow-up on the "Sereno" "Segndo" thing like I didn't say you were going to.

Is there anone else out there, representing the opposition,who can create a more solid, compelling argument? This is WAAAAAAY to easy for me and I'm getting bored.

Dockweiler_Mutt-tt...You sound like a moron with a small dick. Guys with small dicks all sound the same. People are all talking and looking forward to watching Zuma Dogg this morning at city council. He is the talk of the city. He's gotten more publicity then the clowncil members. The reporters are even waiting to see what he does today. As for the waivers you're full of shit. The only people not mad are the corporations that are getting freebies.
