Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa obviously can't wait for the cataclysmic results of the movie "2012".
He's trying to destroy the City now.
The City is 500 million dollars in the red and he's flying around the globe... taking trips to Iceland and South Africa, and now... to top it off... he's going to the nonsensical time-wasting conference of ultra-liberal control freaks who call themselves the "United Nations Climate Change Conference."
Yeah... I'm sure they'll save the world.
Instead of wasting time with politically-correct theories, Villaraigosa needs to have his rear end back in Los Angeles dealing non-stop with the immediate budget crisis.
During the election in March 2009, I attended a forum in the Valley where he talked about the crisis.
I wrote down a question that was asked by a moderator.
I asked him to name a single person he had fired.
He talked in vague terms about having fired several managers, but he couldn't name a single person.
In the future, that is not going to be a problem as the budget crisis reaches catastrophic levels.
He'll have to fire thousands of people.
Or, he can just keep taking foreign trips.
He can keep looking in other countries for places to buy for his future post-Mayoral residence.
That seems to be his only skill set - spending taxpayer money and delivering no results.
