FIRST OF ALL: Damn, when it rains it pours, y'all. I sit around for days with nothing to do except wait for the next council meeting, but today, it seems everyone I know sent me and email and called me all on the same day: TODAY.
And I am very excited to read everyone's email, cause I can see the "subjects." But I get overwhelmed, trying to hit up a reply or blog post all at once. So I at least wanted to post this to let you know I heard your voice mails and see your emails and I'll have a fun day looking at it all and will get back to everyone soon.
THE BEST EMAIL was from a company that will be giving Zuma Dogg's YouTube videos a much bigger platform. So look for that, hopefully, starting next week. It's not a national MTV show, but it's the best thing to hit Zuma Dogg's video career since I've been roaming around City Hall.
WENDY "GREUESOME" GREUEL TRYING TO USE THE "SARAH PALIN FOLKSY MOM" APPROACH: It won't work Wendy...every sees your not so sweet like Sarah Palin and you are far too terse and appear too wicked during the Council meetings to pull it off. But during the first item on the agenda today, Wendy used the opportunity to remind everyone she is a mom, with a son at home, by making some statement about how her son benefits by the service provided by the department with an item on the agenda, or something. So it's been a while since her prop was running around chambers messing up papers and disrupting the meeting. But with Sarah Palin gaining so much political territory with her "folksy mom" approach...Wendy took the opprtunity to once again remind you she is a mom with a son and so she's perfect for City Controller, because she'll fight for the future of the City for her son's future! (Meanwhile, she the one voting "yes" on everything that just wiped away the future of the City and she has never taken a stand on anything as far as I have seen, except standing up to jam through the same stuff everyone is showing up to protest against.
CITY OF LOS ANGELES BETTER CHECK ITSELF BEFORE THEY ARE WRITING MORE CHECKS!: ZUMA DOGG HAS HAD ENOUGH OF CITY COUNCIL ENFORCING "NON-LAW" REGARDING THE LEVEL OF MY VOICE...AND CUTTING ME OFF TO SAY, ADDRESS COUNCIL AS WHOLE" WHEN I AM ADDRESSING COUNCIL AS A WHOLE. City Council has gotten into a bad habit with SEVERAL public comment speakers over "addressing council as a whole" when the constituent is not speaking directly to a CM and IS addressing the Council as a whole. City Council is trying to prevent a person from even MENTIONING Councilmember's name...HOWEVER, it is possible to use a CM's name WITHOUT addressing the CM directly...
AND ZUMA DOGG IS HERE TO SAY THEY ARE OVER THE LINE IN THEIR ENFORCEMENT...and it interupts the thought pattern of the speaker, says to the public that the speaker is doing something wrong (when it is allowed) and they issue a warning that could cost you the rest of your time for the day...AND the interruption itself wastes the speaker's time...
So Ms. Wendy Greuel...I mean City Council, please tell Ms. Wendy Greuel too keep her mouth as shut as Zev's when Zuma Dogg is talking...UNLESS IT IS AN ACTUAL LEGAL VIOLATION!!! So, she better put herself in check and stop enforcing her desires and stick to enforcing the law. And I better see a decimal meter installed in Chambers with the written law that shows where I am violating the law, before she opens up her dim-witted mouth.
MORE IMPORTANTLY: If ANYONE can paypal ZD $5, $10, $20...I've never been worse off. If you thought I was bad last week, this is a week later. I've been hanging in there in quiet desparation...but now I have some things to move on, and I can't leave this shopping plaza, cause I am TOTALLY out of gas. AND I hungry as hell, cause I still drove to Van Nuys and back today on the money a normal person would have eaten on, instead.
AND OH YEAH: Due to 3 hours of "Dog and Pony Shows" during Friday's Council meeting, the agenda today had EIGHTY FOUR (84) F*CKING ITEMS ON THE AGENDA!!! So that's the new shady trick, because, OH YEAH, Zuma Dogg went to Van Nuys today, where they didn't bring out any agendas until Wicked Wendy already "opened the roll, closed the roll, steamrolled the vote" on the whole day's worth of business. THEN, the agenda came out in Van Nuys.
BUT CITY HALL IS WORRIED THAT I AM SPEAKING TOO LOUDLY WHEN I AM AT VAN NUYS AND THE AUDIO DEPARTMENT CAN EASILY ADJUST THE VOLUME CONTROL!
DO NOT ENFORCE PASSION!!! I KNOW ABOUT YELLING AND SCREAMING AND CAUSING A DISTURBANCE TO DISRUPT THE MEETING....
But a person should not be required to speak softly. It's called passion...they don't have any so of course they would never understand. Wendy doesn't come off too smart when she speaks, so like the Mayor, she's probably just hoping not to stumble all over herself and not put her foot in her mouth, as she always does. So she doesn't know about speaking passionately, but she better learn the difference between that and an actual disturbance.
CAUSE NOW I'LL WALK INTO CITY HALL AND SAY IN A NICE QUIET VOICE....MUCH MORE CRITICAL CONCERNS AT A DEEPER LEVEL THAT ZD HAS BUT DOESN'T LIKE TO TALK TOO MUCH ABOUT ON TV FOR PERSONAL SECURITY REASONS...
SO TELL WENDY NOT TO PISS ME OFF UNLESS SHE IS WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THE LAW....BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW WHAT COMES NEXT ON THE BLOGGING AND PUBLIC ACCESS TV SPECIALS AND I HOPE SOMEONE DOES PAYPAL ME MONEY CAUSE THE FIRST THING I WILL DO IS DRIVE THE SHOW TO THE WEST VALLEY AND HOLLYWOOD/DOWNTOWN CABLE SYSTEMS AND AIR THE SHOW NOW POSTED AT
HOPE IT WAS WORTH IT WENDY!
