Los Angeles Fiscal Cliff? No, Ramp!

Sometimes the lies are just so large pointing them out doesn't do any good.  This is one such case;
El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora La Reina de Los Angeles de Porciuncula (The Town of Our Lady the Queen of the Angels of the ((River)) Porciuncula)
The  cast is familiar.  The old mayor, moderate from either party and a progressive council beholden to special interests.  The new mayor, personally flawed but telegenic and progressive, protected by the magic shields of skin color and shared liberalism favored by the the media.  I mean, how many married mayors survive an affair with a journalist covering the office?

 Not that it matters.  Even the old mayor has caved this time.  Former mayor Richard Riordan was circulating a petition to reform public pensions.  Instead he made a deal and let the city propose its own "reform."  Meaning no reform.

VCStar a mere week ago:

Total regulatory capture.  It's not just for corporate America anymore.  

N.B.  The Top picture is the Airship Los Angeles.

Did you see this?

The unions sent people out to disrupt the signature-gathering process.

We'll just have to wait until the city goes BK before this can get fixed.

Insert whatever you like -- it works for pretty much everything when everyone is soooo invested in the status quo.
