Zuma Dogg PSA for LA County's 2-1-1 Phone Service and More Clips from the Zev & Zuma Show! (Aka: Board of Supervisors Meeting)

Although the Mayor Sam crowd will like the "Zuma Meets Zev" video in this embedded player the most, because we kinda got off to a rocky start, I put the interest of the people of LA County first, and put the ZD PSA for the County's fantastic 2-1-1 phone service on top. (Notice how Zev simply and neutrally responded, "We will" to my "snap back". He wasn't defensive; he didn't escalate the situation. We moved on, and it was a great meeting. Council should try it sometime!) And don't you LOVE how he added the "we don't just do whatever we want here" editorial. I guess he's no fan of the way some other folks run their meetings.

Scroll side arrows for two more "Zuma Dogg Addresses LA County Board of Supervisors" public comments from this most important meeting of all meetings as Zuma Dogg addresses the most important issues of all issues.)

I don't know how the County managed until now. But, there's no need to fear...ZUMA DOGG IS HERE!

Dress for success Zuma Dogg: No, it’ not a business meeting or job interview, but most every City Hall has a dress code, which is usually formal. The chance to dress up is actually part of the reason some people go to City Hall. Look for suggested Tip lists on a City Hall's Web site, but if you find yourself unprepared for a “formal attire”, you do have options: rent, head for the Salvation Army clothes bin line or ask Antonio about renting an outfit from him.

Someone gave me an expensive pair of blinged-out Oakley custom sunglasses. Maybe that will help.

"But most every City Hall has a dress code, which is usually formal." [I didn't see a dress code in the Brown Act. I'll go back and check.]

The chance to dress up is actually part of the reason some people go to City Hall. [The chance to put fraud, waste and abuse on record for opening the door for future legal challenges, to speak to the elected officials and network with the community are some other reasons people go to city hall besides a chance to dress up.]

Good evening ladies and gentlemen (removes hat and bows low with flourish):

Yes, Zuma lad. I'm back from Texas. And I understand that you have had slings and arrows of paid lackeys to discredit you so that when the other shoe does in fact drop, if you will, your name will be worth nothing more than a dried turd in the hot sun, savvy? So pay them no mind and remember that they work for wages based upon the number of posts per hour, not actual hours worked. (Pokes paid sots with stick) And to prove my point, if any other unkind things pop up on this blog about you, me or any of the other characters du jour, then we'll know what's what about that. But let's not talk about that. Let's talk about something else, savvy?

The Bard tells me that he was out having lunch at La Villa Basque in Vernon with one of the Six and two of the Five the other day, and he had the chance to observe three rather well connected people lunching and discussing the Troubles that a certain mayor is having and the distance that certain Presidential candidates are putting from him. And while several months ago others were clamouring for this certain mayor's favor, now that it appears to be that the distance between him and Them is growing wider, will Someone Else step in and take advantage of this certain mayor's rolodex.

Apparently not, for the "rudderless" that I spoke of not that long ago has seemed to becoming closer to being a reality and farther from being just idle chatter.

(looks at clothes) Oh bugger. I seem to be wearing non-Armani tonight. Perhaps the Fashion Police who troll the hallways at City Hall will cite me with a moving violation, savvy? (Smiles) But then again, I've never been a fashionista. I've only entertained them on my crushed red velvet couch.

So keep your chin up, Zuma lad. You must be getting into prime position to catch Cinderella's shoe when it drops. The question is, will it shatter, savvy?

I'm not sure about all the shoe dropping stuff??? i don't know how i play into it? hope i'm not supposed to be doing anything? unless it involves destroying DEA dispensary bust evidence. otherwise, have someone call me or email me in english. i am curious and i wish i knew what you are talking about. (Besides some of the hillary/antonio stuff. but everything seems to be hunky dory as far as i can surmise.)

Yes ZD, when you show up at a meeting and speak coherently, don't act like a complete jackass, and make a show people respect, you can actually get a favorable response.

Maybe this has shown you something.

Hell yeah...i have said recently that since it appears the media spotlight is shining pretty brightly over at tv 35...i am trying to make best use of the time, even more than before. And when I see there is opportunity for receptiveness, like at BOS and those magic moments at council...it just challenges me to try and out dazzle them with something even better, next time.

Especially, since I always wanted to be a Deming/Marketing consultant in the first place, before the comedy ZD, or politcal activist ZD.

So if it took all of this, to be able to show up and give a Deming/Marketing seminar, without the comedy angle...well then I guess it's all's well that ends well. There is no more important group of people I could present this stuff to than the government.

Corruption will always exist, and that will skim enough money off the top...so at that point...ZD wants to help make sure we get our money's worth with what's left.

And I feel good that no matter how shady and corrupt and in-efficient these politicans are...THEY, too, want to make sure the money leftover is used efficiently. Because all these problems, cause THEM problems, and that's how problems/corruption is uncovered.
