BELL, CA : ... Salary Cash Back Rebate's ... and ... Political Incompetence Debate's ...
This posting to take another look at the political incompetence and outright corruption, that sweep's the nation ... this time on small town American government. This didnt get nearly the mainstream coverage I thought it would, and I wanted to wait a week or two to try to pick up the best coverage I could for this. I want to thank the Los Angeles Times for pushing this to begin with , because this is one of them small SE Los Angeles County suburban cities, of mostly low to moderate income folk's, who most do what is popularly called through "herd programming" the "Right Thing". And also congratulate the citizen's of this town for acting immediately and demanding result's. I see many of these folk's as heroes.
Protest in Ball: City residents say "enough!" ... Thanx to REASONTV
Political Corruption in California ... Thanx to sharky734
Now some may say that to wait until all investigation's are done by the Attorney General's Office of California to debate the action's here and salary cost's, expenditure's, etc. But for me for instance ... this is a fairly cut and dry case of first class political bullshit American style, and great that the citizen's of Bell had at least the courage to stand up to this and confront it face to face. The investigative process is fine and dandy and legally needed, but in the meantime doesnt do a damn thing for the people here and now ... taking swift action against this rubbish from the taxpayer's through confrontation's can get result's in 6 day's that would take legislator's 6 month's to review and 6 year's to resolve. The first response from these incompetent politician's was to defend the salaries, then tell the people that they will take a salary drop of up to 90% etc, one even willing to work for free the rest of the year. Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh ... what in Hell is that? sound's like one of them "cash back rebate's". :) I am very familiar with the Los Angeles Area and the cost of living and what is fair payscale's ... heh, heh, heh, heh, heh, ... this was outright robbery! :) And none of this posting even focuses on the pension plan's that most of these folk's get after they leave a job, which is incredible ... and even large government politician's are also covered by such treat's ... you can see why so many are attracted to politic's, and are the last to want anything that remotely resemble's actual "change".
After the exposure of this .... politician's statewide with their pocket puppet's were all raising Hell with the Sacramento hierarchy, about how outraged, shocked and in disbelief they all were ... taking precious time away from their job of making assprint's in their leather seat's. Great to see how hard everybody want's to get the job done when their asses are in a political sling. Everyone is alway's in shock and disbelief except for those who are victim's unfortunately, they have to feel the reality. In the meantime while these folk's that are the victim's and working taxpayer's of this thievery ... had done their job pushing actual "immediate" action onto the one's involved and responsible .... they got at least immediate resignation's ... of course political flunkies from the state also worked behind the scene's through the grapevine getting message's to these folk's to drop out and disappear, since election's are up soon, to try to at least save what's left of their asses basically.
Congratulation's to the People of Bell!
