Councilman Rosendahl, Where's Our Dog Beach?

When Bill Rosendhal campained for City Council, he said he'd work to create a dog beach. We both attended and spoke at an Unleash the Beach rally. Indeed, his campaign website, which you can see if you click here, shows him speaking at the rally, and sets forth his statement that he fully supports a dog beach.

Well, he's been in office about a year and a half, but L.A. still has no dog beach. What gives, Councilman? Let's go! Don't roll over and play dead. Stand up for what's right.

Dog beaches are good, clean, humane fun. Huntington Beach has a dog beach. Many cities in California do. Don't let any so-called environmentalists tell you they're unsafe, cause pollution, etc. They don't. This is not rocket science. It's man's best friend.

Okay, enough soap box. Click on the You Tube link above to frolic with Hank and Sam at the Huntington Beach dog beach for one minute and 11 seconds.

A promise from Bill Rosendahl and expecting him to deliver is like giving your twenty to a weed dealer in his district for a dub sack, and having the gangster say, "Thanks, I'll be right back with your sack...I have to go get it from my friend." And expecting to see your sack/dog beach.

Dishonorable mention also goes to Mark "Bill's Best Friend So He Can Do Whatever He Wants With No Consequence" Grant and Linda "Sucks" Lucks.

More Rosendahl bullsh*t campaign lies from someone with zero heart and no integrity.

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME WITH THIS ONE, BILL YOU PHONY. And shut your curtains at you wild parties...I got a phone call from your neighbor complaining.


"For too long, our neighborhoods have been under seige from uncontrolled growth that happens with little or no community input. We need to fix the broken planning process and insist on genuine smart growth that complements our neighborhoods.

Promote smart growth policies that encourage mixed use, providing local jobs, affordable housing and accessible transportation for workers
Any new development must go hand-in-hand with infrastructure improvements. Our infrastructure must be able to handle any new developments
Insist development fees to improve traffic and the environment be spent expeditiously and in the impacted neighborhoods
End the “insider culture” in the planning process that allows consultants, lawyers and planning “specialists” to manipulate the process and win variances and zone changes."


Do humanity a favor...retire. More empty campaign lies at www.billrosendahl.com

Bill Rosendahl-Antonio-Grant campaigned on the following. (From www.BillRosendahl.com)

• Refuse to approve major developments until proper infrastructure is in place.

[Have you refused ONE yet, Bill? The infrastructure hasn't been put in place, yet.]

• Insist on genuine and complete mitigations for ALL traffic caused by new development, and set up transit improvement accounts so DEVELOPERS CONTRIBUTE to future transit projects.

[Genuine...not you, Bill. "Developers contribute"? That's like saying, "ZD quietly said..."]

• Modernize and upgrade regional airports in Ontario, Palmdale and Orange County to alleviate the burden at LAX and reduce car trips from all over Southern California to the Westside and the 405 Freeway.

[Bill, You're not Councilmember of those counties.]

• Facilitate the development of an intercity high speed rail system that can reduce the need for local air travel and interstate freeway trips.

[Yeah, tell George Jetson it will be ready as soon as you raise the billions and billions of dollars, and have everyone agree on planning, then the actual construction. MAYBE by the time George Jetson's grandkids have grandkids.]

As a professor, Bill understands the challenges that the school system faces. That is why United Teachers Los Angeles has endorsed Bill as the “Education Candidate.” They know that Bill can help address the alarmingly high drop-out rates that were recently documented in a Harvard University study (LA Times, March 24, 2005).

[Bill, I learn new things about you every day. I didn't know you can help address the alarmingly high drop out rate??? What have you done. I'm impressed.]

They know that Bill is the candidate who can bring the city, the school district, the business community and neighborhood groups together to improve the quality of education and to increase and expand services for our children. Bill has a positive plan to improve our schools:

[H-E-L-P...Call 911...I'm...choking...from laughter. Huizar did more as LAUSD boardmember...and you CAN'T do any less than that.]

BUT, OH BILL-- YOU HAVE TOPPED RICHARD PRYOR, GEORGE CARLIN AND MANY OTHERS AS GREATEST COMEDIAN EVER WITH THIS NEXT ONE: (As long as your buddy Mark Antonio Grant is working for you, and allow Sucks Lucks to push you around like a little girl, this is all a BIG LIE:


Bill believes we need a City government that respects its residents and invites them into the process. He has issued a Constituent Bill of Rights to guarantee access to open and transparent government:
• The right to prompt, professional and courteous service.
• The right to be treated with dignity and respect by friendly, courteous and attentive City employees.
• The right to ask questions and receive accurate and useful answers.
• The right to prompt return and follow-up calls concerning complaints and requests.
• The right to be educated about the services provided by the City and how to obtain such services.
• The right to an inclusive and transparent process for community development, parks, and transportation decisions.
• The right of all constituents to meet with their councilmember at weekly “open office hours” in the district.
• The right to advance notice and reports for all neighborhood projects and deliberations.
• To see Bill's campaign mailer on his Constituent Bill of Rights, click here.
• To read Bill's proposals for using the Internet to inform and empower residents, click here.

Bill, how do you sleep at night you inactive phony. And stop with the fake grins. I'll settle for a lifetime of frowns if you accomplish ONE THING from your campaign website.

As usual, the ranting fool with the ski cap knows nothing about which he rants.

Yes, it is true that LA City does not own John Wayne Airport, but they do own Palmdale and Ontario Airports, and also Van NUys Airport (look it up, unbathed one, at www.LAWA.org).

A Los Angeles City Councilman can do a lot about regional airports, especially the one that represents LAX.

But, remember, it takes eight to do anything, and ten to do anything the Mayor doesn't want to do. But, that's just reality, and has no place in the ranting world of Dave Elliot, aka ZD, the never was who wastes everyone's time with foolishness.

Getting a state dog beach at Dockweiler requires state authorization. Rosendahl has gotten Assemblyman Ted Lieu to file a bill in the legislature. It passed the Assembly kast year, but enviro groups had it killed in the Senate.

To 4:49: You could make the same points without being offensive, you know? Not everyone knows everything about every obscure point of local government, nor would it be obvious to most people that one city would own airports in other cities. Just a suggestion that you try civility first.

To 8:04: And therefore Rosendhal should just give up? No, no, no, no! He CAMPAIGNED on this. He needs to lead the charge, get resolutions passed, put pressures on whoever it takes. This is not a cause I'm urging him to take up; this was a specific part of his platform, and he went to groups tha care about this. So he doesn't get off the hook that easily.

Hell no...He's still got about 3 years left as CM. I'll be running for Mayor, instead of CM. No, the problem here is that Bill Rosendahl's in-ability to even attempt to try and accomplish something actually makes him a public safety threat to the district and city. And what really pisses me off, is I have NEVER seen anyone kiss ass to both sides of an issue and tell them BOTH what they want to hear -- THEN DO NOTHING!!! It's called Rosendahlismn.

AND - out of my entire post, all you can say in Bill's defense is, "Yes, it is true that LA City does not own John Wayne Airport, but..."

Sorry loser, even your strongest point is a loser because he says John Wayne in the campaign info. Secondly, he's got people shooting each other in the streets (more than ever since he took over, because of his lack of action, and policy like 42.15 that only accomplished added homelessness, hunger, first time welfare benefit applicants and worse. (HOWEVER DID NOT ACCOMPLISH THE GOAL OF GENTRIFYING THE AREA, AS HOPED.

So yeah, you say Council has control over some, but not all of the airports outside the county (my bad)...but again, not all the one's mentioned...and that's some priority for a CM to run on. "I'll fix other airports, even though I can't even fix the timer clock at Van Nuys, and the only thing I've actually accomplished is kicking a bunch of little old ladies out onto the street cause you didn't follow up on ONE GOD DAMNED THING ON YOUR CAMPAIGN LIST. At least some of these people can get a pothole filled, or something. Bill, you can't handle the gig...partially because of your health, secondly because you surround yourself with friends instead of community members and because your a kiss ass that simply doesn't have it in him to do sh*t. Man, do i regret the day Villaraigosa sent the caravan over to your district and put you in office -- BECAUSE YOU - YOU --YOU were the one in charge of "turning a blind eye" during your duties as poll supervisor when Antonio magically won the district.

Now say one more thing bitch and see how fast all my comments on Rosendahl are posted as a main thread on this blog for all the search engines and syndicated feeds to pick up. PLUS, I;ll go ahead and talk about his wild "Hef" style parties that offend the parents of the neigborhood because he REFUSES to keep his window shades closed, while everyone keeps their clothes off. Bill, you've been asked to close your window shades by your neighbors....Can't you at least do that. But don't worry, I told your neighbors who contacted me IN PERSON over this, that I was not interested in the video footage. That's not my thing. But you know what, since you haven;'t been able to fix the airports across the region as local councilmember...can you at least shut your damn curtains at home. (YOU KNOW EXCATLY WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT, Bill and Mark.)

Now someone say one more damn thing.

thanks....FOR ONCE -- someone clarified a point for ZD -- about the point itself, not ZD hisself.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU...Believe it or not there is nothing I love more than a clarification like that. (Everytime someone clarifies something...it's one less thing making ZD bitter and angry.

Meanwhile...to the Rosendahl spinners....I posted the thing about Bill's open curtain "Hefner" parties. Only a few will see it here. BUT DO NOT CHALLENGE ME ON THE ACCURACY OF THIS. I WILL FORCE A POLYGRAPH TEST -- THAT I WILL TAKE THAT -- and there's more to it than this.

So drop it like it's hot...for Bill's sake. I wanted to mention it here...but if you push me on it -- YOU will end up being the one responsible for me having to defend my point publicly on this blog -- on TV 35 (requesting an ordinace that all councilmembers in District 11 keep their curtains closed during naked "hef" parties -- and they won't be able to call me off topic during "general public comment." PLUS -- of course the AM talk show host will LOVE it. So that's it...I said my piece for this thread...now the power to drop this issue is in your hands. (Fingertips actually.)

Wacko Walter, once again, more concerned and humane about amentities for puppies than people.

What if I were to tell you that many of the dogs that would play on the beach were actually ILLEGAL ALIEN dogs.

And most of those that were born here (anchor doggies?) have NO dog documentation.

What are we going to do about UNDOCUMENTED dogs that use the resources of the citizen dogs of this country and cost taxpayers more and more every year.

Would that cool off your ardor?

Or, if I could get an undocumented alien to lick your face, would that maybe help turn you from rabid animal rights activist to HUMAN rights activist?

Or is that just a "person" of a different color? Maybe if we could have "separate but equal" beaches for people of color, that would help you, too?

Anyone that expects a councilman - any councilman - to be able to deliver much of anything in their first year has no background in how this city, or any large city works.

The first 6 months is always lost getting staffed and trying to get yourself up to speed on what the last person in that spot was doing (or wasn't doing, if they were busy running for another post somewhere), and deciding whether any of it is worth finishing at all.

The next six is spent putting out out fires started by goofs from the staff you "thought" was trained in the first six months, but really didn't know what they were doing.

That's not apologetics (because I'm no fan of Rosendahl's), that's just reality. Any complaint that begins with "he's been there over a year, and hasn't accmplished anything" just reveals how naive the complainer was in the first place.

Everything of any consequence gets accomplished in years 2.5 - 4, and typically takes 12-18 months to complete, in any case. Then opponents will scream that they just "rushed" to accomplish something in order to get re-elected.

If those opponents make a good enough case, the CM gets bounced, and we start the game over again, with 1-2 more years of non-productive dancing and wasted time.

I hear ya. good argument. when zd bashes bill, i'm factoring in all that stuff and basing my opinion relvative to all other councilmembers and what i have seen in the past year at city hall.

bottom line...the guy is too nice and soft to fight for his district. he might be a great guy as a private citizen, but a public safety hazard as a CM.

His staff will be the first to tell you, Bill is being eaten alive as CM at the horseshoe. And he really doesn't even stand up for anything, except a TV speech on TV 35 on the back of some other CM's motion -- then he'll ride the coatails. (Ex: Hahn's LAX.)

I hate coming out hard on Bill, cause I do think he is a nice guy -- and would do all the right things -- left to his own devices. But he IS the mayor's muppet -- BUT even worse, can't stand up for anything except an empty speech. I've held my tounge on Bill for a long time, because he's a nice guy -- but you know what -- I DO FEEL HE IS A THREAT TO THE DISTRICT AND PUBLIC SAFETY AT THIS POINT AND HE HIDES BEHIND HIS GOOD, PERSONAL FRIEND MARK ANTOINIO GRANT AND LINDA SUCKS. So SHAME ON YOU BILL ROSENDAHL. WILL YOU DO SOMETHING -- PLEASE!?!?

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen (at least it's afternoon where you are):

Forgive me for not taking off my hat and bowing low. Anon I have no hat upon my head. Instead I am in trunks astride a board. Ahh, sots. This IS the life!

A word about canines upon the beach. When I was a lad, I once had a blond Labrador Retriever named Ping Pong (because he always went back and forth 'round the yard). My Dad was with the D-Core and at the time we lived in Hong Kong when it was still British. But I digress.

Ping loved the water. His greatest joy was when Mum was in the garden, watering the plants. He would charge the hose stream and try to bite it. Bath time was always a two-cent Python's Flying Circus with Ping in the tub with me. If Dad took me to the plunge, Ping HAD to go too. Little bugger got morose if he didn't get to accompany us.

As another Dogg would say, here's the pitchy on the sitchy, stichy. A promise is a promise. No matter who makes it...an elected, a Boy Scout or even a pirate. A man's word is his bond. IF the man was smart, he would make sure that his promise is actually keep-able before making it, savvy? (Says confidentially to the rudderman) And this was the advice you gave your client who wanted to take over a school district, eh? Blood hell, the damn fool didn't take it did he? (Rudderman shakes head in the negative) Coo-ee. Like I said, IF the man was smart, savvy? 'Course there is no telling the amount of smarts in correlation to ear size. (Rudderman smiles and paddles away to catch wave)

Back to the subject at hand, which is keeping promises. I would not feel too put out. The same Mr. Rosendahl has made promises to another band of pirates who sail under Blackheart's flag, and those promises have been kept at the expense of others. Now I'm not saying anything against Blackheart and his crew, but I do know that when it comes to breaking promises, they tend to want to be on the breaking end and not the broken end, savvy?

Which then begs the question. What promises did Mr. Rosendahl make that he kept? And who is the pirate Blackheart? I'll give you a clue. Blackheart can be found skulking about in the CQ, the Seven and the '69 but does not go near the ocean. Salt air makes chrome hubbies go rusty and we can't have that now, can we?

They don't call him Smilin Bill for nothing. Teflon Bill is more like it. I watched this guy promise everything to everybody and every special interest group in his campaign. Now we see what his real agenda is, his picture on the cover of the L.A. Times smilin' and shaking hands with Eli Broad the skid row developer. Can you say Bill for sale?

Oh and by the way, you ask just where are thse poor souls from skid row being moved to? Well look around Venice and you will see. They are being displaced to Venice, Santa Monica, Hollywood and parts of the valley. Already the crime rate is spiriling upwards. In Penmar (east of Lincoln) during the past several weeks there have been 8 burglaries by suspected homeless junkies (they take food as well as laptops and jewelery). The owner of the Pioneer Bakery site cleans out daily, bums and junkies and their trash after they jump over the walls and squat on the property.

A couple of months ago Smilin Bill met with disgruntled Palisades homeowners at the Riviera Country Club who were complaining they were getting homeless in the Palisades. Bill's comment was don't worry we are making room for them in Venice. And so he is!
Just as long as they don't camp in front of Linda Luck's beachfront home either.

I suggest they all camp at Bill's house at 3715 Wasatch Ave. Mar Vista, 90066.

Don't forget where Bill's sympathies lie. Remember he rescued a homeless druggie off Venice beach who became his lover and eventiually died from previous life. that experience seems to have given Bill a permanent set of blinders to the issue and the rest of the community be damned.

Dog Beach like Huntington, that will be the day around here. Isn't it so ironic that a conservative town like Huntington would create a dog beach while Venice the bastion of liberalism does not. Nope Bill has other plans for Venice as in Skid Rose and Skid Lincoln.
