Mayor Sam's Hotsheet for Monday


Parents of a teenager allegedly murdered by an illegal alien will go to City Hall on Tuesday to call for support of Jamiel's Law, rolling back Special Order 40 protection for illegal alien criminals.

Rumors abuzz that a Latina from a Central California Coast Fishwrap of Record could be the next editor of the Daily News.

Saturday evening I had the opportunity to warm up the crowd and introduce KABC's John Phillips who was the emcee for the California Jaycees Foundation's Outstanding Young Californian Awards. Among the winners was Council President Eric Garcetti. Councilman Garcetti was nice enough to come and introduce himself to me; it was my first opportunity meeting him. Though Garcetti has pursued some things I absolutely disagree with, he is certainly the brightest person on the Council.

In Sunday's Daily News, KABC's Doug McIntyre offers his view on the sad story of the murder of Jamiel Shaw and the need to pass Jamiel's Law.

A great piece from Joe B. on how Los Angeles shanghaied Sunland-Tujunga to become part of the City of Angels.


We've told you before that Zev Yaroslavsky is running for Mayor on an anti-development platform. Marc Haefele takes a look at the Fifth District County Supervisor from a pro-Villaraigosa point of view. Zev still says he's not running. Yet.

Despite the City Clowncil's goofy ban on murder, a lot of people got shot and some were killed this weekend in the Valley. A total of 13 shootings were logged citywide. I guess the criminals didn't get the Clowncil's memo. If the Mayor and Chief Bratton want to keep putting their head in the sands on at least one of the issues driving crime, they can. But the chickens will come home to roost.


More support for Stuart Waldman. The Assembly candidate reports an endorsement from the 179,000 member AFSCME (AFL-CIO) California PEOPLE. This follows endorsements for the 40th AD Democratic candidate from a number of firefighter unions.

Immigrations and Custom Enforcement agents have arrested about 50 illegal aliens working in various Los Angeles area warehouses. No word on if the employers were sanctioned.

Looks like Absolut Vodka supports the reconquista. No wonder I only drink Grey Goose, Ketel One and occasionally, the cheap shit, UV.


If you miss your daily dose of Joseph Mailander, don't fret. You can catch Joe at his new blog, Street-Hassle and still get all your early morning hotsheets and Sunday Mimosas. In the recent Mimosa outing, Mailander exposes the usual bullshit that runs through LA. Also, there's links to the surviving better halfs of the legendary Martini Republic. It appears the best the dum dums visiting Street-Hassle can do is attack Joe's photos. Keep trying guys.

After all of this time is it still important to you who left who.

I assure you the decision to leave was mine. But O.K., buddy. I was voted off. (Feel better.)

Little ole' ZD was kicked off and left high and dry. YOU WON!

Meanwhile, you got Mayor Sam sucking up to Eric Garcetti now, so I think we see what has happened to this blog.

When you have Mayor Sam kissing Garcetti's ass, this whole blog is upside down and Mayor Sam has his head up his ass.

And you can say I am "stealing" from Mailander. I think he considers it helping to promote his new blog, that he has thanked me for.

I really don't know what more I could have done to roll out the carpet for Joe on my blog.

Have fun reading Garcetti kiss-ass fluff on this blog.

The blog is doing great, and everyone is saying how it is better than ever!

Let's take a review of some of “high-profile” racial killing of blacks by Mexican gangs in the Los Angeles area. Mayor VillaRaza can’t keep hiding the obviously huge Latino gang problem and the many racial killing by these gangs.

1) There was the Rico federal case against the Avenues gang in North East Los Angeles for killing blacks.

2) There was the Rico federal case against the Florencia-13 gang for killing blacks.

3) There was the case of the 204st gang, in Harbor Gateway of killing many blacks. Including Cheryl Green.

4) There was the recent prosecution of several Azusa-13 gang members targeting blacks in Azusa.

5) There was the recent case of Duarte Eastside-13 and Monrovia gang killing blacks in Duarte and Monrovia.

6) And the most recent murder of Jamiel Shaw by an 18th st gang member.

How much more proof do you need about this problem. And these are just the recent high-profile cases covered in the news.

Dear Mayor Sam Readers,

It is not these people's fault that they are forced to turn to a life a crime. These people come from families that come here to work hard. But they cannot even earn a decent wage at these jobs. We need to spend more money on things like scholarships and grants for education; extend unemployment benefits; provide free health care for those who cannot afford it; and fight for higher wages and fair and equal treatment for everyone living in this country. Maybe if you did some of this, you wouldn't have such overcrowded jails.

I know it sounds like I am running for office in Los Angeles with that platform, but I have not yet made that decision.

I guarantee you, if I didn't see weak spin like 12:51 AM, you wouldn't have seen any ZD on this comment section today.

But I can see I still need to keep checking in, cause it's important for you to make such comments on a thread that had nothing to do with any of that.

Don't you find it odd that you continue to obsess over me, after all this time?

So I'll be back to see what's up.

And are you aware of why it is important for City Hall to embrace Deming 14 Point philosophy. (Important if you want to reduce waste and increase efficiency and productivity.)

But since it is Monday, back to school day...let's me weigh-in on some ways parents can help do their part to help the school system better do their part:

Number one: If you are a parent, you probably shouldn't be blogging about Zuma Dogg at 2 in the morning.

Parents need to do more to better prepare their children to allow the schools to do their job of education.

Too much time is spent each day on discipline and basic skills and behavior problems that result from parental neglect.

Parents can help fix the school system without leaving home.
Simply accept and added level of responsibility and become active participants in their children’s lives. You can judge what a young kid says, and how they behave by the standards imposed on them by the parents. It’s tough to say "no" to your kids, when other parents say, "Yes", or don’t say anything at all, because the kids are left un-attended.

Too many parents think it is the schools and teachers job to instill dignity, respect and discipline into their kids. BUT IT IS NOT. That is the parents’ job. The schools job is to educate kids. Help fix LAUSD by fixing your kids, so the school can do its job. (Teach them how to read, write, add, etc.) Asking your kid, "How was school today? Did you do your homework?", is not taking responsibility for your child’s education.

I know it’s tough to be a parent to your kid, these days. The high cost of housing, taxes and gas makes it hard to make ends meet, and both parents (if there are even both parents at home) have to work long hours, and travel through long traffic-jammed commutes, for not enough pay, at the end of the day.

And at the end of that day, It’s much easier to say, "yes", than argue a long protracted battle over how late a kid can stay out, or how many hours they can use myspace, youtube, ipod, xbox, or even regular old TV. And it doesn’t help when other parents refuse to do a thing to help instill discipline, morals or standards in their kids.

But you must rise to the challenge and be the leaders and role models in your kids’ lives. Parents don't rely on the City to be your kids’ babysitters after school. Rely on each other. Spend more time talking to each other about after school activities. Do more for each other. Talk about what your kids are and are not allowed to say and do. Try and convince other parents to go along with the higher standard, so all the kids that play together lift each other up, instead of drag each other down.

So that's ONE thing the community can do to fix the schools (besides reducing classroom size, paying teachers more so we can recruit new ones, after school programs, safer streets and other things that are out of your control):

Take on more responsibility to do the job you asked for when you had a kid. Be a mentor -- to your own kids. You cannot leave the job of raising your kids and teaching them responsibility and values needed to keep them in school, graduating and productive members of society we need them to be to a school system. That’s not THEIR job, it’s YOURS. Take on the challenge. It will be almost as enriching and rewarding of an experience as myspace or YouTube.

By city council taking a retreat, it allowed me to reflect on what I would have said at the retreat.

I think Councilmembers are missing out on a real opportunity to take the power of those City TV 35 cameras and use it for more than dog and pony show photo opportunities and campaign grandstanding. Councilmembers are sounding and looking like Top 40 deejays, during the grunge rock era. A little corny and no ones buying it.

So from here on out, in order to try and provide you with the example of the type of leadership talk that is needed to transform our community and help bring it out of the crisis; every time ZD steps to the mic, for general public comment (and whenever possible during agenda items, he hopes to use the opportunity to try and out Tony Robbins, Tony Robbins. In other words, try and use the two minutes to run a citywide hypnotherapy session that replaces old, un-empowering beliefs that preventing people from making the positive contributions we need as a community and replace them with the new, empowering beliefs. And once the viewers have been reframed to allow their subconscious mind to congruently communicate with their conscious mind, you eliminate the mixed signal you send to yourself and others. Then add a little emotion down the neuro-superhighway and you create the passion that drives you and triggers you into taking action.

And I challenge my media cast mates, all fifteen members of City Council and Mayor Villaraigosa to join me in the challenge.

Thank You,

Zuma Dogg
Public Advocate of the Community

Eric always wants to "compromise," to "find a middle position between mine and yours." Which gives the sense of listening but also, not a way to make social policy. Rosendahl is like that, too.

This is an abdication of a moral stand, like owning up to and dealing with the fact that illegals are murdering citizens (and fellow illegals) left and right. They've moved into the rest of the city as they've seen what cowards the leaders and police chief are, when it comes to dealing with them.

This is the case where being "P C" and being more concerned about kissing butt to the LaRaza Mexicans on the Council, is more important to him than doing the moral thing. (Eric is half-Mexican on his dad's sad, as he likes to point out, so he thinks that means he has to sell out the city to kiss butt to these radical leftist Mexicans who make no doubt about WHO they represent.)

DWP rate boost no surprise
Re "Jacked up" (April 3):
Wow, what a surprise! The idiots on the Los Angeles City Council have once again allowed the Department of Water and Power to raise rates. Considering they pull money from the DWP revenues for the general fund, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out their decision long before they announce it.

As we have seen, the money never goes for what they say it is going for; instead, we read in the paper about some political fluff getting a big fat pay raise.

Maybe the reason Mayor Sam is all giddy over Eric Garcetti is because it's the first time he met him.

I met him a bunch of times over an issue in my community and not all of us are so happy to see him anymore.

He's smart though. He knows all the right things to say to people who could simply never imagine that any human being could be so two faced.

And that's how he wins. He is just much more committed to getting his way, at any cost, than any everyday constituents could ever imagine. So they trust him and he keeps them on a string.

So that is pretty smart.
