Child welfare system under scrutiny: How about 14 points to reduce 14 children deaths?: When I was running for mayor, one of the issues that crawled out of the woodwork and was brought to my attention for the first time was the abuse that goes on with good, innocent kids of neglectful parents who are abused under these social programs, including foster care. But this story in LA Times and Daily News was just , "Hum dee dum dee dum" to the pompous, arrogant asshole Board of County Stupidvisor Zev Yaroslobsky:
From LAT: Monday's revelations that 14 children died last year as the result of abuse or neglect despite being under the watch of child welfare authorities should have come as no surprise to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. In 2007, the number was 12, according to figures released Tuesday. In 2006, the number was 14. The types of systemic failures that led to the deaths also were the same. [YOU BETTER SHUT UP AND SEE DEMING'S 14 POINTS BEFORE MORE KIDS DIE UNDER YOUR "SYSTEMATIC FAILURES!" Systematic failure means "built into the system!" You better FIX THE SYSTEM!]
From LAT: "The only difference really between 2006 and '07 on the one hand and 2008 on the other is that 2008 is public and it made the front page of the newspaper," Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky so flippantly acknowledged as only a protected lifetime politician could at the board's regular meeting.
Turning to Children and Family Services Director Trish Ploehn, he asked: "This is not news to you or to us, correct?" "That's correct. I know about the deaths and you've known about the deaths," Ploehn replied.
[Well, then there is NO NEWS HERE? What's the problem? We already knew this? Why is it even being discussed. Carry on people. Carry on. HEY ZEV, LEARN HOW TO RESPOND THE WAY AN ACTUAL HUMAN BEING WOULD YOU HUMAN DOUCHEBAG AND SEE DEMING'S 14 POINTS BEFORE MORE KIDS DIE UNDER YOUR "SYSTEMATIC FAILURES!" Systematic failure means "built into the system!" You better FIX THE SYSTEM!]
TELL ED REYES YOU DO NOT CHANGE THE CHARACTER OF THE CITY AND GO AGAINST THE PEOPLE'S WILL, JUST BECAUSE IT CREATES JOBS, YOU SHALLOW DUMMY!: I heard that dolt, idiot Los Angeles City Councilmember Ed "Crybaby" Reyes whining that although the entire city has decided they do not like these flashing UFO billboards that have popped up all over the city(behind the city's back). But Ed Reyes wants to remind you that when you pop all these dangerous and nuisance billboards, that even the State ASSembly is investigating for safety related issues...
CREATING JOBS IS NOT A FACTOR IN THIS, DUMMY. How about having the city allow a factory to create assault weapons. IT WOULD CREATE JOBS. How about building a toxic waste dump next to your house, Ed? IT WOULD CREATE JOBS! How about letting any and every vendor sell candy, ice cream, potato chips, sodas, etc ON THE SIDE WALK, RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR LAUSD SCHOOLS IN FRONT OF THE PLAYGROUNDS, ED? IT CREATES JOBS!
Ed, the city has spoken and the billboards are GONE, even if it creates jobs. I still think that you think I am on the wrong side of this issue. And that's the problem with L.A City Council and especially the dumbest of them all, Ed "Crybaby" Reyes, the dummy. Ed, I wouldn't be in such a hurry to be running out there and speaking publicly unless 100%, completely necessary. Like, if the other 14 councilmembers perished in a plane crash and you were the only survivor and had to call 9-1-1. Other than that, don't embarrass yourself, which is what you do EVERY TIME you open your dumb mouth.
ASSembly Speaker Karen dumBass rescinds pay hikes, thank goodness: Assembly Speaker Karen dumBass today said she would rescind pay raises she granted to more than 120 Assembly aides in midst of the state's fiscal crisis.
The move came a day after the raises were exposed by news outlets and less than a month before the May 19 special election, at which Bass, other legislative leaders and Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger will ask voters to extend tax increases to help ease the state budget deficit.
Yesterday, dumBass said raises would be offset by reductions in the Assembly’s operating budget.
"In hindsight, this was really becoming a distraction," she said, from work being done in the state Assembly and efforts to pass budget measures on the May 19 special-election ballot.
Yes Karen, it SHOULD have been QUITE a distraction, you dumBass! YOU DO NOT REDUCE THE OPERATING BUDGET TOWARD THE GOAL OF OFFSETTING FOR EXECUTIVE RAISES!!! But I guess you didn't understand that concept, or think it was COMPLETELY inappropriate!?!?! Wonder what other dumBass things you are doing in Sacramento. YOU REALLY ARE THE HEIR TO THE NUNEZ THROWN.
RICHARD ALARcon WANTS TO "CACTUS" OUR WAY OUT OF WATER CRISIS: This really highlights a big problem with the wacky Los Angeles City Council and their lack of ability to seriously address any 800 pound elephant standing in the room.
They just LOVE to hit that buzzer and weigh-in with wacky idealist solutions that dance around the actual issue about to slam them smack between their eyes: So as we are facing the most serious water crisis that is immediately here before us, let's divert the discussion to something we can all feel "warm and fuzzy" about. You know, we really should be planting more catctus, not trees. (THAT's the problem, more cactus, less trees!)
Hey Con, why not take your catcus idea and sit on it for a while and let the serious minds and actual leaders have the floor. Your coffer-sucking, general fund draining days are over, my friend. TRUST ME! Now sit down! You're DONE! (And I don't mean in the Neighborhood Council "empowerment" way.)
L.A. councilman pushes childish and clownish solution to serious water shortage
By Rick Orlov, Staff Writer
"I seriously think we should look at offering cactus to (utility) customers," Alarcón said. "I ate one last night, and they're delicious.
"I think the DWP (Department of Water and Power) should hand out these drought-resistant plants along with recipes on how to prepare them and it would send a powerful message and reduce water use."
He suggested, for example, that the city could hand out small cactus plants to children at street fairs or schools.
"I would like to see us have cactus gardens all over the city," Alarcón said. "We would seriously cut our water usage if we gave out a million of these."
Alarcón's suggestion came as city officials considered further restrictions on water use in response to the drought.
DWP General Manager H. David Nahai, the voice of reason among the wackiness, said the utility has a landscape rebate plan that helps residents transfer to more drought-resistant plants, but it does not require cactus to be planted.

There must be something about becoming an elected official that turns you into a pompous, arrogant, wacky, stupid, coffer-draining dummy that causes any type of leadership or common sense to fly right out of your irresponsible, corrupt, soft, no-hearted heads. What a bunch of no-heart dummies running this state. Half of you will just be lucky not to end up caught up in the Numero Uno story. THAT ONE REALLY SAYS IT ALL. And nothings changed, it just got exposed.
MORE STUPIDITY REPORT TO COME. I CAN'T TYPE THIS SH*T FAST ENOUGH.
