I'm not excited about this upcoming City Election here in Los Angeles tomorrow.
There is only one person I will have an interest in voting for, and that is Carmen Trutanich.
I am voting for Nuch based on my personal friendship with him, which developed over a period of months in 2009 when I was running for Mayor and he was running for City Attorney.
Spending a lot of time together at civic forums and neighborhood candidate events gave me some real insight into who Nuch is and what he is trying to accomplish. Nuch is no typical egomaniacal politician...in fact, Nuch got into politics fairly late in life after having had a successful career in the private sector.
His opponent, Mike Feuer is quite the opposite.
Feuer is an entrenched career politician with no backbone or integrity. He simply wants to avoid getting a real job in the private sector, and get back on the government teat. Feuer has already spent six years in the State Legislature and six years on the LA City Council. He has helped to send both our City and State very close to bankruptcy.
Voters rejected Feuer in 2001 when he ran for this exact same position.
I will help voters reject Feuer a second time by voting for Carmen Trutanich tomorrow.

Well, this news comes as no surprise to anyone who lives here.
Despite ludicrous claims to the contrary, the Socialist regime in power in Los Angeles has brought local citizens massive pain by way of government edict.
The high-taxing high-regulating Socialists in power have managed to drive away a record number of jobs and businesses with their wealth-redistribution schemes.
It turns out that hard-working business people don't care for the local governments aggressive attitude towards their income.
Los Angeles has had more massive layoffs -- 27,000 -- than the next five major metro areas in America combined.
And yet, somehow, one of these two candidates will be rewarded with the Mayors Office Tuesday night.
I don't know about you, but I'm getting a sick feeling in my stomach knowing that one of these two will be in power here for the next four years.

Wendy Greuel is now promising hotel workers $15 an hour as a minimum wage at their hotels in return for their unionized voting bloc support.
What a vile election season this has become.
From the LA Times.......
The union representing hotel workers in Los Angeles has been out in force campaigning for Wendy Greuel for mayor. In large part that's because union leaders said Greuel told them she supports their proposal to impose a $15-an-hour minimum wage at big hotels in the city.
To fire up their workers, and voters, about the wage plan, United Here, Local 11, composed a mariachi-style song that it played over the weekend from a pickup equipped with loudspeakers.
Union officials translated the Spanish lyrics into English. Here's a portion of the words:
"If for la Wendy you want to vote
Get in the car and let's have fun.
And for la Wendy to win
All Latinos got to have her back.
If you want to earn $15 an hour
You have to march for la Wendy.
If the blond comes to your door
Open the door and let her in.
Wendy, la Wendy we're gonna vote.
$15 an hour we'll make.
Wendy, la Wendy we're gonna dance.
Eric Garcetti start crying.
From Montecito to Huntington Park
Passing El Sereno, eating tamales
And the voters for you will fight.
We'll have extra money to spend.
The people will support you.
That's why the blond will triumph.
In the truck we'll celebrate
With the mariachis we'll sing
Her last name is difficult to sing
That's why we're writing this rhyme.
La Wendy, Los Angeles you will change
And the Latino vote will crown you."

There is an old saying ...."Politics makes for strange bedfellows."
Nothing could be stranger than hearing that the soon-to-be-Private-Citizen Jan Perry has decided to endorse Carmen "Nuch" Trutanich as City Attorney.
At first reading, you might think this was a typo or a misprint.
No, it's real.
"But how can this be?", you might ask. After all, Nuch is the same City Attorney who threatened to throw City Council Member Jan Perry in jail for shady contractual dealings with corporate titan AEG.
It is difficult to forget something like that.
Evidently Jan Perry simply prefers Nuch to the vile option of Mike Feuer. Feuer is a degenerate career politician who simply doesn't want to get a real job, and is craving more milk from the generous government teat.
Nuch, on the other hand, actually enjoys doing the job.
His threat to jail Perry was a sign of his authenticity.
Perry can respect that, if nothing else.
Feuer won't be jailing any City officials.
Most likely, if he were to win, he would be aiding and abetting them.

While many political experts are turning their attention towards the potential political hotspots of Iran and North Korea, the actual threat of World War III happening any time soon should instead cause people in power to divert their attention towards the legitimate danger of the conflict between Pakistan and India.
Originally one country, Pakistan and India split up because their Muslim and Hindu populations could not co-exist. The majority of India (Hindus) stayed where they were. The Muslims migrated to the northwest and formed Pakistan. This separation hasn't worked well for either side.
Muslims from Pakistan have been crossing into India and kidnapping and raping Hindu women and forcibly converting them to Islam. The Muslims -- as commanded by their "prophet" Mohammed -- have been conducting terrorist attacks and murderous raids on the Hindus in India for over 50 years. The terrorists attacks on Mumbai in 2008 that killed 164 people were officially supported by Pakistans Intelligence Agency. (If that isn't cause for war, I don't know what is). It is a horrifying and intolerable situation, and because of it the Pakistanis and Indians have already fought three declared wars during this short time period.
Most people in India are now at the point where they would welcome war with Pakistan, as it would allow them the chance to decimate their enemies.
The video above is very famous in both countries. It was made about four years ago by a young Hindu Girl that was about 13 years old at the time.
Even though Hindus are well known for being one of the most peaceful religions on earth, the horrible treatment of their country by the Muslims in Pakistan has resulted in this video, in which the young Hindu girl is screaming for her country to be strong...to confront Pakistan and and even use nuclear weapons on them if necessary.
The interesting thing about this video is not the girls passionate speech, but the fact that she had a crowd cheering her suggestions. It shows the mentality that is growing in India...that they must either fight or die.
This young girl is not an elected official in India, but who is to say that in 20 years she might not be? Or that someone who listened to her speech won't be elected to a top position in Indias political structure?
Pakistan is an official government sponsor of terrorism, rape and murder. They have become the most dangerous country on earth, and it was a severe mistake for the civilized nations of the world to allow Pakistan to obtain nuclear weapons. India now has to deal with this situation on a daily basis.
The animosity level between these two countries is off the charts.
They are headed for war.
The only question is when.

Here is a photo of me with my "Oh no!" face while visiting a friend who works on the Greuel campaign.
Want to know why Wendy Greuel and Eric Garcetti both suck?
They are both Big Government Statists who believe they have more power to control your lives than they are actually legally allowed.
LA City Council recently voted that they would ban high-capacity magazines for firearms.
They conveniently forget the large angry mobs of the LA riots in 1992. (Do you think 10 little bullets will save you and your family in that situation? Good luck with that...!!)
How would Wendy or Eric act on this issue?
They wouldn't do anything.
That's why they both suck and I won't be voting for either one of them.
