The Tyranny of Richard Alarcon

Well, it looks like the freedom-hating liberals at Los Angeles City Council have decided that they are a little tired of listening to the rabble-rousers of this City. A new motion made by mini-tyrant Richard Alarcon states that he wants the City Council to move the pesky "Public Comment" part of the meeting toward the end of the days agenda. There are many problems with this.... where do I begin?

First, let me state that I understand City Council Members and their frustrations with the Public Comment process. There are several players in this City who I feel are a bit abusive of the process. Zuma Dogg, Matt Dowd, and Arnold Sachs will sometimes put in a comment card on every, single subject up for discussion at City Council meetings, even if the subject is uninteresting or non-controversial.... like building a parking structure or paving a street. There are also some very odd public comment speakers who go there day after day and complain about the same off-topic subject without ever changing their monologue. There are, indeed, times when I question the sanity of some of these more "abstract" public comment speakers.

HOWEVER, as elected officials, it is their job to listen to the people of this City, however irritating it may be.
If they don't like it , they can resign and find employment elsewhere. Here's another original thought... maybe they should find some solutions to the problems so they don't have to see these people day after day.

Incredibly, they don't see the hypocrisy in themselves. These same City Council members who don't want to listen to you, the voters, have no problem going off on long-winded rants that go nowhere...then they turn around and vote for something that they themselves were protesting against just five minutes earlier. Some of the Council Members are truly egomaniacs who love to hear themselves talk.

Their behavior on Fridays is truly repulsive. They waste hours of official City time on obscure personal items and nonsensical, capricious behavior. They kiss the asses of every person who owns a donut shop or an auto body shop...Flowery speeches to praise average citizens... City Certificates of Recognition... There is no doubt in my mind why these people continue to get re-elected. They are Democrats. They buy votes with other peoples money.

As much as they hate some of the nuisances associated with Public Comment, it doesn't cost them any extra money to listen for a few minutes. Their behavior, on the other hand, costs the taxpayers millions.

The value of public comment is to put these officials feet to the fire and force them to do their jobs. Representative Democracy is what it is called, and it has served this country well for over two centuries.
Moving the Public Comment to the end of the day is not right. It should be the first thing on the agenda.

Sometimes I thank God for the presence of a Zuma Dogg, or a Matt Dowd, or an Arnold Sachs. Sometimes they are the only people in the City of Los Angles who are trying to catch the City when it does deceitful and underhanded things with our money. Things just like this motion.

I'm listing the email addresses of these City Council Members.















It is time for the voters of this City to remind these selfish, self-centered egomaniacs exactly who they work for.

(Thanks to Mayor Sam friend Daniel Wiseman for bringing this subject to our attention.)

This motion will allow the council members to leave once the agenda items are rubber stamped. They will not have to stay for Public Comment.

That way they will be able to make the curtain call at the circus in plenty of time to get tofu dogs and Imported water.

NO PHIL, mi amigo! I do not put in cards for every single subject up for discussion. Sometimes there are 50, 60 items on the agenda, and I still only get a certain amount of time. So it only SEEMS like I have cards on EVERY ITEM up for discussion, because if I didn't put in a card, it wouldn't be opened for discussion.

I NEVER PUT IN A CARD TO BE TRIVIAL. Out of 30, 40, 50, 60 items...I can hit about three to five items. THERE ARE ALWAYS WAY MORE SHADY ITEMS.


Parking structures!!! NO ROOM FOR SHADINESS THERE. But how many times have any of us spoken on parking structures.

IF I SPEAK ON FIVE ITEMS, THEY ARE SLAMMING 50 MORE SHADY ONES THROUGH UN-CHECKED (except for the ones they call special because THEY want to call them special, and they are not calling them special to stand up and expose the corruption/shadiness.

And if they move it to the end, then that will hurt the non-regular speakers,because Matt/ZD/Arnold stay for the whole meeting, anyway. So it will end up driving away everyone else, but it will still be ZD/Matt/Arnold at the end of the day (literally).

But what this really says is Alarcon is a frustrated clown and Janice Hahn, is that YOUR name as a "second" on that motion.

Gotcha, sweetie! You have a lot of room to talk about anything besides "kickback" reform.

Hey Janice, thanks for reminding me what a REAL problem you are on council with all your non-profit stuff and I hear you rule the ports with on a real "hustla" tip.

Janice, Janice, Janice...you add SO LITTLE, take SO MUCH and you really just should sit there quietly and let the people who know what the hell is actually going on run the show. Just sit there, take your money, DO NOT hit the button, cause you don't know the meaning of, "brief" and you drone ON and ON and ON and ON and Eric is even making eyes at ZD in frustration not knowing how to stop the runaway brainless mouth of Janice Hahn.


And Alacron...I'll just let the FEDS handle you and your boys. You're already defeated when a guy who has it "made" like you is creating motions like these.





(I have to remember I am talking to a man who will LIE to your face about stuff you read back to him off a transcript.)

It's cowardly behavior like Dick Con's that makes him a prisoner of his own neighborhood as he gets no respect from neighbors. A king who has no respect from his kingdom as he is mocked, scorned and berated by people who don't give a rat's ass about his slick suit and connections.

This is another reason to elect Zuma Dogg for City Council and show these arrogant egomaniacs that the people will have one of their own speaking up at council mtgs no matter what they try to do. Mark my words, we elect Zuma Dogg, and every city council person will have a chill run up their spine because they'll see that the people are serious and are willing to vote these hack politicians out.

It's time for the citizens of this city to take back their city and do what's right, not what the big money special interests want.

Phil, Matt O'Dowd saying "fucking" in front of CHILDREN, knowing full well that they were right there behind him.

I think the childish behavior of Matt and Zuma far exceeds that of the other craies that go to city council with such regularity.

When you used to come to city hall, you may have been boring and annoying with your high pitched voice, but even you weren't so stuupid as to deliberately swear in front of CHILDREN.

They may be our elected officials, and they do have to listen to all REASONABLE comments. But saying the F word in front of children is NOT what they're there for. In fact, it is their sworn duty to make sure that the meetings are safe and reasoanble for everyone, especially those who aren't able to stand up and protect themselves, such as children, the disabled and the elderly.

I hate Richard Alarcon as much as the next person, but I applaud them for making square that the town square is a place where even our youngest neighbors can go and listen to virgorous debate without being exposed to obnoxious behavior.

You say you "take care of" children, so I don't know if that means you're referring to your own children or those of someone else, but I doubt that you would be happy if they were to be exposed to the behavior of people like Matt. And how old is O'Dowd now? He must be closing in on 50. Time to know when you can or cannot speak that way. Bar, yes. City Hall, where children are present, no.

A few weeks ago I asked Zuma Dogg whether he is mature enough to get along with the others on city council and he said that IF elected,he WOULD behave and get along. But he doesn't seem to know that in order to get there in the first place, one has to demonstrate maturity IN ORDER TO GET THE VOTES TO GET THERE. The time for mature behavior is in the present, not just in the future.

If people didn't want motions like this instituted, then they should have organized and found better candidates in the first place.

Case in point is that as lousy as villaraigosa is in office, all the public did was complain and then REELECT the guy.

This makes perfect sense since nothing can actually be done at that given meeting about anything new raised in public comment, so why front-load it in the first place -- it's just for future action, if any is warranted. Council staff can take notes, respond, and deal with it in the days that follow.

Set aside the paranoia that the council is just trying to wear out the dozen or so peavish, profane gadflies. That's just a side benefit to actually handling this stuff in a logical order -- for once.

Maybe it could also be the case that City Council would like people who come downtown to speak during the general PC to sit through the actual business meeting and learn how City Hall works, rather than saying their small piece -- which can't be acted on or discussed at that time -- and then bailing out themselves.

its just another way to kill public comments. so now the public has to sit through hours of debate about golf carts and Tom LeBonge shady ready golf cronies before they get to have 2 minutes on REAL issues that cost the City $650m a year, and that's before we pay one single employee on staff? [the pension payout is $650m from the total revenue of $1bn)

it would be nice if the Council all got invloved in some other issues like they did with the golf. instead of this 'protocol' of letting the dumb ass councilmember do whatever they want and just go along with it:
Zuma's right, it's a go-along Council.
here's the scary thing, a horse called Tamar won the first race at Del Mar yesterday. 8-1. Led the whole way and fell in over the line with the favorite breathing down her neck.

Alarcon is along with Huizar, Reyes, Cardenas part of the Mexican Mafia culture of gang bangers with Antonio as their leader. They aren't men, they are mice. They have no balls as "real men" to be leaders. This is a pussy way out for them because they dont' like constituents constantly pointing out their failures as politicans. Zuma makes excellents points and makes them look bad at every turn. Matt Dowd, Mike Hunt, Arnie and the women in Van Nuys are embarrassing to the process however, they are exercising their 1st ammendment rights.

Public Comment is important and should be valued. It should be first before anything else.

It is down right sickening that public officials do not give the public that elected them into office any RESPECT.

Vote all these dirtbags out of office. And, thank God that some are termed out. And, some would have already been out of office now if voters should not have voted them a 3rd term.

12:13 a.m., "Maybe it could also be the case that City Council would like people who come downtown to speak during the general PC to sit through the actual business meeting and learn how City Hall works,...

That is exactly what Council should do on Fridays for the Dog & Pony Show session. Those people are heard first, and an hour or more is the usual delay for real "business" to begin. What was learned there, other than what a cool bit of calligraphy can buy some favor with people?

THAT sequence should be what they change.

Public apathy is what they want to cultivate. Remember that Tony V. was elected only by a majority of voter who actually voted for "Mayor" and that only about 18% of the city's registered voters showed up, with a lot NOT voting for anyone in the "Mayor" category. Not that popular, but enough to win. Wendy Greuel collected more votes running for Controller than did Tony V.

Tony was elected by LESS than 9% of the registered voters, and nearly all the odd-numbered CDs were settled with similarly weak showings. They count on people being UNINVOLVED with city matters and the Alarcon Motion will help that result.

Alarcon's motion is typical of his bullying style, and Cardenas as a second fits, too. Hahn is again showing how she miscalculates the public involvement in the process. There is where your "danger" lies.

You might "blame" Zuma Dogg and other regular speakers, but without them keeping their feet in the door on many subjects, the CMs would cruise to even more self-serving, special-interest-paybacks than they currently manage AND you wouldn't know about it.

The "rules" will apply to ALL not just Zuma Dogg or Matt Dowd. If you think visting City Hall is not frustrating enough with losing quorums and many CMs not paying attention, this might accomplish the purpose of making the burden of addressing city hall too onerous to bother with.

And I sure don't think saying "fuck" is the end of the world for children hearing it. I doubt if most have never heard it before, but the remedy is punishing the offender for the specific offense and not to create a preposterous remodelling of what is already a theater- not for commenters- but for the pompous CMs who daily top each other with their windbag talents.

The fact that people don't like ZD, Dowd, or any other less prominent voices should not be an excuse for the City Council to be taking these steps to be even less accessible for the relatively small amount of time taken by public comment- especially when the CMs will have more opportunity to slip out early, which will happen.

Doing things BETTER or CORRECTLY should be what these "representatives" do for us. Instead, they build more barriers to any inquiry. If this action was happening close to the next council election, they would probably not act so boldly to restrict public involvement with the council meetings.

In CD-14- where my CM has always practiced non-confrontational representation himself.

Good soty in LA Slimes from David Z on those stupid Mayor signs. Funny that a lot of them have markings like "666" on Antonio's head, mustaches and pointing ears. What a waste of money. Ron Kaye weighs in.

..Jim Gonzalez, executive director of the group known as the Renewable Energy Accountability Project, said the ads are in no way meant as a rebuttal to an essay on Villaraigosa in the June issue of Los Angeles magazine, whose cover featured a more grim-faced image of the mayor and the word "Failure."

"Here we observed a courageous local official basically boldly stating that in the next 10 years that they're going to stop using out-of-state coal to generate 40% of their electricity," Gonzalez said. "It's a strong message and a message that I think really should be heard."

Still, critics of the DWP have questioned why the environmental group chose to praise the mayor for a pledge that is two months old and as many as 11 years from completion. "How do you celebrate someone for making a promise and end up calling them successful?" asked Ron Kaye, a blogger and former editor of the Los Angeles Daily News who signed the ballot argument against the solar plan known as Measure B earlier this year.

They don't need a motion for this. They already move public comment to the end of the meetings on Friday. The only reason they usually do public comment at the beginning of the meeting is because of public pressure. So maybe Eric Garcetti can have Richard Godfathercon explain to all the people who show up at 10am, they have to wait until 1pm or 2pm to speak, cause Janice doesn't know how to stop talking once she gets started, all the other long-winded madness.

So once again, OUT OF TOUCH AlarCON needs to take his pompador out of his ass and shut up.


And ALARCON...you have SO many other things to concern yourself with and I will be making sure you become much more concerned.

RICHARD, the problem is when you stand up and try to look like a leader, when you are the most despicable of coward, you REMIND me that you are a despicable coward...and you become the squeeky wheel that I am here to silence.

Hey Richard, first thing I'll do as Councilmember is start getting to the bottom of this Padilla construction stuff, pal.

AND, making sure your staffers do not physically attack neighborhood council participants at Echo Park NC meetings.

IT'S ALL GOING TO BE ADDRESS ALARCON, cause if there is one thing that unleash the Dogg, it's a coward who hides behind the power of his council office to benefit off the backs of seniors, kids and decent people.

Hey Richie Boy....good luck son. You are goihg to REALLY be crying when I treat you like the corrupt coward that you are.

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO HAVE ALL THE SHADY (Godfatherish) power behind you as a careeer politician Bitcacon, and you get your ass served to you on a daily basis until all you can do is cry about me on LIVE TV and after I bitch slap it back all over your face, until you have to walk over and LIE to me and say you DIDN"T say what you said, when it was on LIVE TV.


Hey Alarcon, "F YOU AND Y D S!" We are SO tired of hearing about that one. Use another excuse to pilfer your money off the backs of the community. ANd the problem is, now Alex Padilla, Fuentes, Acevedo, Siffin and the rest are going to be pissed at YOU waking ME up on this. DId you KNOW mark siffin used to date vicky shiff of weathely capital? Get's pretty Juicy. Maybe that tale needs to be told, Ricahrrd. Anyway, have a nice labor day weekend. I'll be sending emails about Siffin, Shiff, Acevedo, Padilla construction AND MUCH WORSE this weekend Alaccon, and I'll be sure to let them know who set me off. HAVE FUN DICK.

Phil I agree with Joe that the "freedom hating liberals" comment was unnecessary. Truth is that almost all politicians are "freedom hating" and its only coincidence in California that most of them are liberals.

When most people get into office they become arrogant and contemptuous of the people and that includes not only Democrats like Alarcorn but Republicans like Bush, Arnold, Greig Smith, Abel Maldonado, etc.

City politics are officially non-partisan which makes it easier for us to partner with our Democratic friends who also oppose the shadiness, even from their fellow Democrats. Tossing around rhetoric like that won't help. Without the references to Democrat I bet Joe B would totally agree with your post!

Anyway back in the day public comment was crazy old retired men like Howard Watts and Leonard Shapiro who were often right but had little impact.

Some of the people like Matt Dowd and Michael Hunt are at times over the top. There are some crazy people like Miriam, that old homeless lady and the young lawyer who always talks about Malibu pier.

But I think when it comes to Zuma Dogg who is undoubtedly the king of public comment its not his antics that bother the pols. Its the fact that Zuma puts a spotlight on the shadiness. And since Zuma has information on Alarcon its no wonder Alarcon is trying to put a stop to this. Zuma has been very effective in bringing media attention to City Hall, unlike his predecessors, and has raised awareness of shadiness to new levels. Even if you don't like Zuma you can't deny that. How often was Howard Watts on talkradio (other than a caller), in the local press or even national news?

If you were just prosecuting eccentricity then General Hershey Bar would have been serving a life term.

No, even though I sometimes don't agree with Zuma, it is clear he has had an impact that makes many of the electeds nervous.

Chairman Mao? Communists. Far left.

They always say they are "for the people"... but in reality they just want to control other peoples lives... they are freedom haters.

A few abuse the system and the privilege of speaking to our City Council. They stand between us and our elected officials.

Zuma Dogg and a few others are the the worst - he rants and screams and carries on - on EVERY item, most of which have nothing to do with then whatsoever.

I do not blame City Council for taking steps to adjust public comment so they can hold their meetings in public and not have to suffer the same screaming and ranting at them from people who truly abuse the system of open City Council meetings and the chance to speak to the whole council.

Do the people who comment on anything not care that their antics and comments on everything steal time from the Council and are contributing to the decline in governance?

Do they not stop and think what their antics cost the other City residents?

They routinely insult people we have elected, they disapprove of everything, its all theatrics, it is abuse of the system of public comment time.

Despite their antics, we all owe a debt of gratitude to Matt Dowd and Zuma Dogg. I have listened to them and they are right on point. The City Attorney's rep, Dion O'Connell, is a real jerk with his interruptions of public speaking at will. He even made a point or two during one council session held in Van Nuys which was totally out of line when he made "for the record" remark in response to a speakers comments about the City Attorney's office.

The City Council under Eric Garcetti as their leader has already dramatically restricted free speech rights and the CA Brown Act. The City can break these types of laws unless challenged by specifically lodging objections on the administrative record and then spending money on a lawyer (spending money and effort thanks to our elected reps)

This shouldn't be a partisan issue (making public comment easier, not harder). It is these core constitutional rights that need to be enforced for those with the least power.

We need to elect City leaders who look out for the public and allow public comment in a way that is convenient for those making the effort to go to meetings to speak up on issues.

You are so ignorant. Hitler and his party were nationalists. Kind of like right wing conservatives. They were the mortal enemies of the socialists who ran the Soviet Union. Watch any TV documentary about World War II, or ask any 5th grader, and you'll get a clue.

Right wing dictators are responsible for some of most horrific crimes against humanity in the history of the world.

Your ignorance is staggering.

Hitler was a socialist. All you have to do is look at his policies and see that he was a socialist. He hated communists in the soviet union, not the socialists in the Soviet Union. The Nazis allowed the private ownership of property but the state dicated to them what they could do with their property. The state also dictated to private industry what they could produce and who could produce it. They consolidated all the power with the central government. They forced children to join the Hitler Youth and to swear allegiance not to the state but to the leader.

If you look at the modern democratic party you can see how much like the Nazis they are becoming. They are taking over the auto industry, the banking industry, telling industry what how to produce goods, they are encouraging the youth to pledge to the president not to the Constitution. See the last minute of this video:


If this had a republican president I know that this video would be grounds for impeachment.

But, since he is a darling of the media it is barely mentioned.

"Zuma Dogg and a few others are the the worst - he rants and screams and carries on - on EVERY item..."

Of course if I did actually scream, I would be immediately cut off and please check for the last time that happened.

And, you say on EVERY item. Hmmm, more lies on your part.

So I scream and rant and carry on on EVERY item. Even though if I were to scream and carry on, I would be cut off, and it's not on EVERY item, but a few.

Maybe I should just roll over and let them tell me I can't use the name "Zuma Dogg," I won't film the meetings because they told me I couldn't, and everything else they
try and pull. Things would be a lot smoother and more polite for the corrupt council members.

I do think the reason council is performing so badly is because of my performance as a public comment speaker. Look what happened, the whole city is bankrupt and all the money is gone...BUT I think you should try and point the finger at me.

Please post the meeting date and times that I was "yelling" or even shouting. It happens on EVERY item, so it should be pretty easy to find.

KEEP SPINNING. Really seems to be working. Next time a CM calls me a genius or prophet or asks me how I know everything or says I do a lot of good for the people of L.A., I will tell them they are wrong.

Loser, you have NO idea how GOOD it feels to walk around so blessed by deeply appreciative comments from people in every nook and cranny of this city and county.

Re: Left/Right (and nothing in between).

The most insightful social science professor I ever had made a good point once -- that politics isn't a straight horizontal line, where conservatives line up on the right and liberals on the left.

It's a circle that just looks like a line at any one perspective. In other words -- just like when you head "east" around the globe you eventually get to the "west" -- once you move too far to the left, you eventually end up side by side with the people on the extreme right, and vice-versa.

Dear Friends,

Some of you may be aware of my warnings regarding Wall Street and the global economy when two years ago I made some pretty bold predictions regarding BIG, BIG, SERIOUS troubles and that the market would be tanking and we would have a global recession coming our way.

I warned of pension money being at risk and warned all my friends and family to GET OUT of the market and invest in GOLD at the time.

MOST didn't listen, because who would want to listen to Zuma Dogg on Wall Street advice.

I was 100% correct on EVERY level with SHOCKING specificity.

You can choose to dispute my prophetic warnings, or not.

I AM HERE TO SAY THAT GOLD JUST HIT $1004 PER OUNCE, cracking $1000 for the first time in six months.

I AM NOT GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT YOU SHOULD, OR SHOULDN'T DO (but if you want to know what I think, feel free to call me/no emails on this)...

If this is the small bit of suffering that CC members have to go through as punishment for their short sighted socialist policies, then so be it. If they don't want loonies living in the City of Los Angeles and addressing the CC, they should get rid of the moronic rent controls and drop the horrible notion of subsidized housing. Loonies will leave when they can't rent a pathetic under maintained dump at $300-400 a month.

As for CD2, my votes going to Mr. Saltsburg. And so is the vote of several friends in Valley Glen. @#$$ the LA City Council. If I'm going to have to vote for an interloper, it might as well be the one that gives the rest of the bloated overfed CC a severe case of heartburn. I certainly am not thrilled at the idea of giving Paul Krekorian his retirement gift in the form of election to a city council for a city he does not even reside in. And I think Zuma would take the job even if all it paid was $25K a year.

zuma dogg you obviously aren't aware that the reason why people know you is because you scream on a daily basis. don't harp on the writer's mistake that you scream on EVERY point.

the truth is, you are rude or offensive a LOT of the time. Not EVERY time, and not hardly at all.

you can fool yourself if you wish that people are coming up to you because they understand the situation the city is in. people come up to you because you're the crazy guy with the glasses and ski cap (looking like a bank robber) who goes on channel 35.

you unfortunately take that interest in you as praise.

i think you are personally offensive and vapid, but i get a kick out of watching you because you SCREAM a lot to the point where they sometimes do turn off your microphone. i get a kick out of it when you wear a sombrero and sunglasses to city hall. but i know that you get plenty wrong. like that "rumor" about the raid at the local 300. what was really unfortunate about that is that once you learned that the rumor wasn't true, you didn't correct the story on your blog. that says that you are too arrogant to say that you had wrong information. why is that? i assume because you think that any admission of wrong doing makes you look more and more like the crooks we already have in city hall.

finally nobody cares about your radio "career" because you never specifically give us the company and station names so we can verify it. you think it's cool, but who cares what you did 15 years ago. you did not parlay it into furthering your career, and you couldn't even parlay it into housing. what good did it do you? all it does is draw attention to how far you've fallen since then.

This kind of Palinist-Limbaugh rhetoric is the kind that keeps those who champion civil rights and civil liberties (which we perceive to be a significant cause of freedom) away from this blog.

Zuma Dogg is even according to Orlov the chief reason for this move. First he, Matt and KKK/Mike "my" Hunt say it fast as Matt likes to, pushed the limits of decency, civility, vulgarity and swearing and just plain berating, even personal attacks. They inspired others like Sachs, Miriam (who Higby singles out as being off her rocker but she shares that honor with many of them) etc. to do the same, showing them how to talk on everything and anything for upto 5 minutes/ day. The also inspired others disgruntled with some particular councilmember how to show up and harp on the same things every day.

Or, in the case of the more clever, to come in groups that were actually political lobbies like for Trutanich and pose as "grassroots" opposition, to get written up by the papers as though they WERE a grassroots group.

All under the guise of public comment. Trutanich and Zine also used Dogg, but now he's off his leash and they're afraid of what he'll say, that he embarrasses them and exposes what they did, is a constant reminder of how low they went in their campaign.

Matt-Hunt use it to gloat over suing the city and winning, trying to goad the council into paying them off just to get rid of them.

Zuma, Phil (who's not rude but self-serving) use it extensively to campaign or try to establish their creds as bloggers.

All these councilmembers and Orlov thought they were funny and encouraged them before, but NOW that these gadflies haven't gone away and are now attacking THEM all, they don't like it. With Weiss their favorite nemesis gone, they're now singling out Alarcon, Huizar and no one knows who's next. Even crowd-pleasers like Hahn are not safe. Suddenly they don't think it's so much fun. They thought they could "sacrifice" Jack and join Zine in the bully dept., but the gadflies are after ALL of City Hall, going after the least obsequious first. Alarcon shows he's bothered by at least some of them, so he's an easy mark and hence chief author of this motion.

It's a shame a few people including elected officials like Zine himself had to ruin it for the REAL constituents who'd now have to come and wait for hours or, if things wrap up early, find they've arrived too late. Does the council even have to stick around for public comment, or would they regularly lose quorum? And if people talk to an empty chamber, what's the point?

Have CM's considered the fact that if they have to stick around til the end, instead of being allowed to leave when their key issues have been voted on, it could take them all even longer - since the gadflies have determination and endurance on their side?

Zuma Dogg is the guy known for yelling at council in his ski cap and glasses.

Meanwhile to my supporters who hope I am hanging in there, I feel GREAT today. Someone let me hang out with them all day yesterday and had so much to eat, there is still leftovers for today. So that's ONE senior community member who feels ZD's efforts are worth pitching in for.

AND, thanks to the REAL CD 2 community member who just gave ZD a $300 campaign contribution!

And it's about more than the money, because I sure got an earful as to why this lady felt she wanted to contribute to my campaign.

to 12:20pm on my GOLD/Wall St alert:

Dear Mr. Smart Guy,

This is not about September being well know for being a down month for stocks, or not. My post is about fundamentals that I do not feel good about. NOT BECAUSE OF WHAT MONTH IT IS. AND, when I see GOLD break $1000 that is always going to trigger the ZD flag.

And remember, not every follows the market on a day to day, or even month to month basis. A lot of people have long time "buy and hold" strategies and don't even pay attention.

So I am certainly going to try and let people know we may be approaching some turbulence and please fasten your seat belt.

But you will say it's because it's September and minimize and discount and scoff what I say...you are so smart and it's all so obvious; really, really sorry I brought it up.

But you know what, you arrogant crybaby loser (which is EXACTLY what ANYONE is who would be so obsessed and compelled to even post that meaningless comment)...

if ONE person reads the $1000 gold alert and my caution and perhaps prevent any loss whatsoever, then it was worth superstar geniuses like YOU to have to endure.

The blog space is free and if the market bottoms out the way I am expecting it to, and I didn't say anything, I would feel pretty bad about it.

So my only advice is don't read my blog, because it's always going to be filled with obvious stuff everyone knows already. Like when I said pension money was at risk and subprimes were about to implode and it was going to be a lot worse than an 80's recession and would be the worst thing we've seen since the depression.

The city lost it all, the whole country lost it all in Wall Street...people and businesses were WIPED OUT and it was all because of shady b.s.

But when I said it, you were right there to mock my comments then, too.

But you're right, no one cares, but I think as someone running for council that people only know from the past three years as an activist, I think it's worth mentioning that I have corporate experience at this level. Don't the other candidates mention their career background? People wanted to know. It didn't occur to me to mention it, cause yeah, who cares...I'm F-ing Zuma Dogg and you either want me in there and know what it would mean to the district and city, or sit there and try to sort out who you trust among the other 9 candidates. And yes, to me there is the "BIG ZD" and the "Other 9." (I mean, seriously!)

And I DID parlay it, smart guy. I went from Ohio to NYC to L.A.

And you call it "fallen" because you only judge things by the paycheck. But I walked away from that because I had dignity and respect for myself and I didn't want to go along with all that stuff (it was getting pretty bad under clear channel when they took over radio industry.) So you can kinda say ZD is the ORIGINAL Clear Channel hater...AND THE CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO DIVISION PREPARED ME VERY WELL FOR DEALING WITH PEOPLE LIKE CITY COUNCILMEMBERS.

COMPLETE IDIOTS!!! I was always wrong at first, then they would call me into the room to put me in charge of doing what I proposed in the first place.

NOTHING HAS CHANGED, except in radio, they were forced to hire me because it was people's REAL money (not just council who can waste it and let themselves be sued and operate inefficiently because it's only public taxpayers money, not their own.)

And I am here to say, since you call it "fallen," but I have so much more pride and dignity in what I do now and am happier with myself now, than back then.

So yeah, maybe I sleep on the street and am hungry and don't have any material possessions, but I've been Zuma Dogg in L.A. as a public figure for nine years running, and it's WAY better than hanging out backstage with the Rolling Stones just because you had to kiss my ass because I was in the decision making position.

I walked away from the whole corporate insanity that Clear Channel created and replaced it with something so much more fulfilling and I am a lot more at peace with myself hanging out at a candidate forum with a bunch of senior community members with some cookies and pretzels than I was when I was at the Grammy Awards party with Mariah, Springsteen and the usual ZD party crowd.
