FEDERAL STIMULUS MONEY PAYS FOR ZUMA DOGG'S SECURITY DEPOSIT FOR NEW APARTMENT!: Yes, it's either money put to good use, or the biggest waste of FEDERAL dollars EVER, depending on how you feel about Zuma Dogg. But at least it shows the money is makin' it to the streets of L.A.
Under Obama's Federal Stimulus Program, there is something called, "Rapid Recovery Housing" Program. Consider it Federal Stimulus Dollars for "shovel ready" housing programs.
As you may know, Zuma Dogg just moved into a new apartment via the HUD program, HACLA, St. Joseph's Center (Venice) and Venice Community Housing Corportation (VCHC). It took all of that, plus a little "Bill Rosendahl" to orchestrate all the Federal strings and hoops for this type of housing. (And ZD NEVER would have been able to navigate all the paperwork and hoops without St Joe's & VCHC. So it's kinda like using Stanley Kaplan to help you prep for the SAT's.)
And the housing is paid for through vouchers (Federal programs) -- BUT, there is a $1000 security deposit required, as well. Well, ZD don't got no $1 dollar security deposit, let alone a thousand times the amount of a deposit...
So Barack Obama to the rescue via his L.A. "spread around the wealth" spreader Antonio Villaraiogsa and assistant Bill Rosendahl to help make sure the Federal Stimulus dollars could be used through "Rapid Recovery" to make sure the deal wasn't blown, since you had a voucher, a landlord and a homeless guy -- all ready to make the system work...so the Stimulus money was put to use for it's intended purpose:
A "one time" security deposit to make this housing deal happen, and the rest of the least will NOT be with the stimulus money. (SHOVEL READY HOUSING PROJECT Y'ALL!)
So ZD feels a hell of a lot better that when all these Wall Street criminals got a bail-out and all the bank bail outs and all the other stuff...that at least Zuma Dogg can account for a thousand of the dollars going directly to the people!
AW YEAH!!! I REMEMBER THE DAY THE ITEM WENT THROUGH THE AGENDA!!! NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD BE GOING TO PAY FOR MY SECURITY DEPOSIT!!!
DO I HAVE TO BE A PITCHMAN FOR DEMOCRATS, NOW?
