LA City Declares Building Walls Builds Communities !!!

Thursday, September the 4th, 2008, a day that shall live in infamy. On the very day of the anniversary of the City of Los Angeles was incorporated, the very birthday of this city, or, more correctly, by it's original name, “Le Pueblos De Los Angeles”, or, in English, “The Village Of The Angeles”. The civic leaders of this city, declared their intention to “Build Walls To Build Better Communities”.

The symbolic reference of the wall they spoke of, is a two foot thick steel re-enforced concrete wall that is a major architectural component of the latest high tech, automated, computer controlled, over priced and excessively flamboyant Public “Robo-Building” ever constructed in the city of Los Angeles with public funds. The grand opening of the latest scandal of over spending by the city council, and it's esteemed Mayor, the opening of the new “Police Palace”, Located at the new home of the Rampart Division of the LAPD, at: 1401 West 6th Street, Los Angeles California, USA 90017, (213) 484-3400. And should ALL READERS, perchance, happen to call that police station several times a DAY and FLOOD their phone lines with idiotic questions such as, “Is it legal to sell ice cream on the streets in the Rampart Division Area?”, well, might that non violent activist voluntary peoples protest send a message to these city officials, and the Pompous

LAPD Police Palaces as well?

At a time when this city is plagued with rapidly declining property values, impacting on property tax income, with property developers going bankrupt over the sudden loss of property values, an ever escalating unemployment rate and the ever escalating cost of energy, this cities civic leaders ”plan” to correct a bankrupt city is to SPEND itself out of bankruptcy. Does this seem like an odd economic plan to anyone else out there? Or is this the “New-World”, “New-Order”, “New-Economy” solution proposed by all overspending, fat, sassy, overfed, self inflated city officials in this country, the “politically correct” solution to all our economic and social problems???... SPEND, SPEND, SPEND, SPEND... The Holy Dollar CURES ALL EVIL !!! Damn the bankruptcy lawyers !!! Damn the Economists !!! Damn the Financial Advisors !!! Full SPEND AHEAD !!!

Somebody far smarter than me, needs to explain to me, HOW, spending MORE money on unnecessary police facilities, during economically challenged times, some how “creates jobs”, “increases community”, and “makes everything better for everyone”, during a time when the economy is in a tailspin, property values are falling below the basement, and unemployment rates are going sky high above the clouds, all over the country. Please explain to this simpleton man, who only has a slightly above average IQ, how this can possibly work?

The very ground upon which this monument to civic mis-management has been built, is the very same hallowed ground, that once held an emergency receiving building of the Good Samaritan Hospital of Los Angeles. That spot, that very SPOT, is where Robert “Bobby” Kennedy was initially taken to, when he was shot in the lobby of the Ambassador hotel. That ground is HOLY GROUND, it can, and may very well, contain the blood of our forefathers, who sacrificed their lives for our freedoms. Upon this sacred ground, which should be a monument to the KENNEDY FAMILY, a MONUMENT to our beloved “BOBBY KENNEDY”, and NOT A MONUMENT TO INCOMPETANCE, is where this Police Palace stands today. They bulldozed it, over the very blood of Bobby Kennedy's last heartbeats. And what did they do with that holy ground? They built an overpriced, over complicated, techno robo-building police station.

They did not build a day care center for low income working class children, they did not build an emergency medical clinic for the working poor, they did not fund a food co-op for the hungry, they did not build anything Bobby would have approved of. They built a monument to oppressive government itself, in the reflection of their own vile images.

Congratulations city leaders of “Le Pueblos De Los Angeles”, you have now lost the respect of your own name.

What an affront to the memory of Bobby Kennedy !!! He was a liberal progressive, and NOT a dictator usurping the income of the working classes. What an affront to the legacy of his family !!! What an INSULT TO THE PEOPLE OF “Le Pueblos De Los Angeles”!!! These people ARE this cities LIVING Angels, ONE AND ALL. Except for this cities city council, who have shown themselves to the general public to be the incarnation of “Los Diablos”, the Living Devils. The military police department of this city, who seem to think that spending over 20% of the total cities gross income on the police department is not nearly enough, and it MUST be DOUBLED in the next few years, increasing that economic burden to over 40% of the total city income, seems to think that the solution to all socio-economic problems of any community is MORE GUNS ON THE STREETS, MORE POLICE, MORE BULLETS, MORE ARRESTS, MORE POLICE STATIONS, MORE JAILS, to the point of absolute economic

collapse of the entire Greater Los Angeles Area. These “leaders” are strangling all money out of the budget for ANYTHING other than the POLICE !!! Agenda items such as.... low income housing for the low income working poor, or, affordable health care for their children, are being cut down to NOTHING in the city budget in favor of ever more and more money on more and more unnecessary city and police employees, buildings, facilities and other related government services, LEAVING NOTHING FOR THE PEOPLE WHO PAY THEM THEIR SALARIES !!!

Does the word NAZI, ring a bell in anyones mind?

SHAME ON THE CIVIC “LEADERS” OF LA !!!

SHAME, SHAME, SHAME !!!

You have done more than insult the legacy of the Kennedy's, you have committed the crime of deliberate gross incompetence upon your honest hard working tax paying citizens of this City of the Angels !!!

This is an OPEN PLEA, an OPEN REQUEST, to the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT of these UNITED STATES, that the City of the Angeles, Los Angeles, or, “Le Pueblos De Los Angeles”, has become so corrupt, so vile, so oppressive, as to require a FEDERAL INVESTIGATION into all of this cities officials, policies, their budgets, their salaries, their “expenses”, programs and agendas. This City of the Angeles, is so badly infested with self serving corrupt persons who are so powerful locally, that we, here, cannot correct this problem on the power of our own resources. WE MUST HAVE FEDERAL ASSISTANCE to rid this city of these cancers, and there are many cancers here. PLEASE, PLEASE, in the NAME OF GOD, For the SAKE OF THE PEOPLE OF THIS CITY, these actions must be audited by an unbiased FEDERAL AUTHORITY.. For like, Chicago, in the days of AL Capone, we are under such a corrupt regime that we cannot break free of the power they hold here amongst the working people. We

need the help of the rest of this nations citizens, we need THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT to investigate, we need their guidance, the Devil has come home to roost and rule in the Village of the Angels, and the real Angels here, the common people, have no power to stop him, for they are Angels, and not Devils, and cannot in their hearts do evil to anyone, not even the guilty.

This may be the very last free broadcast from the City of the Angels, a city under siege, and if my life is forfeit in this cause, then, I hope and pray it was by Gods Will, that my purpose, was to send out this last message of hope for my citizens, my people, whom I love with all my heart, and are worth more to me, than my own meager life.

Sincerely,
