Of Parasitic Bureaucracies

Posted by CotoBlogzz 04-26-2010 04:30 PM Updated Sept.  6, 2010

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA We plan to update this page from time to time - so stay tuned, or send us suggestion,

We continue to assert that California’s Triple Threat is choking off California: 1)  Unions, 2) Lobbyist and 3) Parasitic  bureaucracies.   In the past, we have discussed the California Law Revision Commission (CLRC), the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO), and the Air Quality Board (AQB) as an example of parasitic bureaucracies. 

When we ask lawmakers about what they intend to do about the Triple Threat, with the exception of Craig DeLuz, the silence is deafening.  In the case of Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, the opines that there is nothing that can be done, since parasitic bureaucracies are not elected, but appointed – we disagree:  Lawmakers have the power to shrink government or expand government.  Wit the recently enacted health care legislation:  From lawmakers, to lawmakers creating yet more parasitic bureaucracies.

Now there is the Federal Deficit Reduction Commission – This brand new parasite is being billed as a way to reduce the national debt – the real reason intention is raise taxes to pay for the legislation  lawmakers just passed, without being blamed for having to raise taxes to pay for it.  And by the way, do you know who is in the commission:  Includes the Most Frequent Visitor (MVF) to the White House, SEIU’s president Andy Stern.

Other parasitic bureaucracies include Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac – Arguably largely  responsible for the housing market meltdown and even after having bailed out, require yet additional moneys – Did any heads roll?

SEC- what can be said about the incompetence surround the SEC that has not been said, other than the recently unveiled Porno-Gate?

The Department of Education has been asleep at the wheel for more than 30 years leaving students unprepared to compete in the age of globalization and turning US education into a national security threat – not obesity as others claim.  The Department of Education has been acting mostly as the Department of Mediocrity.

 

Assorted Federal Parasites:

  • Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac 

  • SEC

  • Federal Deficit Reduction Commission

  • Department of Education:  With support from California Teachers Association, over the last 30 years have presided over the Fat, Dumb and Happy (FDH) Student Syndrome.

  • EEOC - Like the EPA, taking a life of its own, "passing legislature", without Congress' approvel

  • EPA

The Parasites (US Congress & FDA) in our Midst
For sometime now, we have been updating our list of Parasitic Bureaucracies to support our argument that California and the country are in dire need of a Bureaucracy Realignment and Closure Initiative- We posist that such initiative, coupled with the Evil Twins - the US Economic Triple Constraint: 1) Card Check 2) Health Care and 3) Cap & Trade, and California’s Triple Threat: 1) Public sector organized labor, 2) un-elected, un-checked parasitic bureaucracies and 3) lobbyists. is of national security importance.

The California Law Revision Commission and the Evil Twins
For years, we have been warning against the Evil Twins: The US Economic Triple Constraint and California’s Triple Threat - , with a message mostly tailored to self-described fiscally conservative legislators. We define the US Economic Triple Constraint as 1) Card Check 2) Health Care and 3) Cap & Trade, whereas California’s Triple Threat consists of : 1) Public sector organized labor,  2) un-elected, un-checked parasitic bureaucracies and 3)  lobbyists.  Interestingly enough, one of the them told us we were off base when we argued against earmarks, because the “percentage was so small” he said – that was some three years ago.

As a past board member of a homeowner association with over 140 members, I would like to ask why you have not addressed Donie Vanitzian’s concerns. For example, her statement “the proposed law does not impose penalties on errant board members, establish a victims’ restitution fund, or require statutory warnings to new purchasers.” Our membership called for a special election and subsequently voted out 3 board members who had not been representing the desired interests of members. Instead they implemented their own agenda without consent of the membership.

Or what is going on in Agoura Hills’ Morrison Ranch Homeowners Association, where the board is in essence funding a $1.000 fence for a $1 horse, not to mention the parasitic bureaucracy passing as City Hall in the City of Bell, California, City Manager Robert Rizzo, Assistant City Manager Angela Spaccia, and Police Chief Randy Adams were allowed to have a combined salary of more than $1.6 million!

Consider that of six DWP employees suspended with pay, in April, 2010 after a KCBS Channel 2 / KCAL Channel 9 aired an undercover story showing the workers buying beer, drinking in a park, drinking while driving and entering a strip club, while on the job, said employees not only would have two weeks to respond to the charges, but said employees would be represented by International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers attorneys, the union that represents the employees. If these attorneys are worth their weight in gold, such as the ones used by the California Teachers Association, chances are the employees will not be terminated, and id they are, they can retire with a golden parachute to boot.

When Hate Crime and other Numbers can and Do Lie

Friday, July 30, 2010, 6:27:35 PM

Last week, Attorney General Jerry Brown released what he characterized an "encouraging 2009 annual report showing that hate crimes in California fell by more than 20% last year”, but warned that “ we are still a long way from ending bigotry and prejudice.” According to the Attorney General, the decline in hate crimes reflects an overall drop on all types of crime in California. At about the same time, the Anti-Defamation League reported a sharp increase in hate crime incidents in California last year. Amanda Susskind, regional director for the organization said the trend was troubling and and blamed the increase in anti-Semitic incidents, on the confluence of the election of President Obama, the recession and the Israeli incursion into the Gaza Strip.

At the same time, as a number of Attorneys General and Governors accross the country swarm to challenge the constitutionality of the ObamaCare Bill, Brown refuses to join mostly because doing so politicizes the issue.

California under siege  - Which is More Threatening:  The  Triple Threat or Lawmakers?      We have tried to reach California lawmakers to get their views on California's Triple-Threat:  1) Public sector organized labor,  2) un-elected, un-checked parasitic bureaucracies and 3)  lobbyists.  Mum is the word.

Consider that lobbyists outnumber lawmakers in Sacramento 8-1.  Add to that the un-elected, unchecked bureaucracies, such as the CLRC, LAFCO and AQB, which are in essence tax-payer funded un-registered lobbyist, and one can see in part, why California is bankrupt:

BRCI, Solution to CA Budget Deficit - Do not leave Sacramento Without it - Bureaucracy Realignment and Closure Initiative

At a time when Orange County faces some $84 million short fall in the 2009 budget, state Assemblyman Jose Solorio (D-Santa Ana) wants a more "responsible budget" by increasing taxes..

Not to be outdone, the California Teacher's Association not only wants a more "responsible budget" by increasing taxes, but is working on an initiative to increase taxes.

Baughing to the King & the 2010 OCSD RaceRancho Santa Margarita, CA - The President of the United States caused quite a controversy when he bowed to kings and foreign dignitaries to the point that the White House spokesperson had to refer to the old Clintonian, “it depends on what is, is” to explain that while the president was bowing, he really was not bowing.

The Orange County's Newest Dance Craze:  The Mumbaugh! Rancho Santa Margarita CA - A new dance craze is sweeping Orange County.  It is a fusion between Irish step dancing and California move.  It is not a re-incarnation of the Macarena, Salsa or Mambo.  It is more like Riverdance, the phenomenon from ten years ago; Riverdance is a theatrical show consisting of traditional Irish step dancing, and notable for its rapid leg movements while body and arms are kept stationary for the most part.  Dubbed the mumbaugh (rhymes with Mambo), like Riverdance it consists of rapid leg movement, but in this case,  in complete silence and in the dark, most popular with the politicians throughout Orange County, triggered by what we have called the Baugh Initiative.

CTA's Mission Statement, Prop 8 and Globalization - The California Teachers Association recently lobbied for what can best be described as an oxymoronic "responsible budget by increasing taxes" argument. Then they turn around and pump  $1,300,000.00 to obsolete traditional marriage, arguably placing a good number of children at risk, while at the same time opposing Proposition 4 with similar consequences.

Kicking Signs and Taking Names - On the Name of 8!- The fundamental argument advanced by the Restoring Marriage and Protecting Children - Yes on 8 (Yo8) organization is that what seems to be lost in the current debate on proposition 8,  is the rights of the voiceless:  Regardless of which side of the debate one is in, the voiceless victims are the children.  The organization points out to statistics demonstrating that children raised in an atomic marriage are better off by any objective standard.  So the organization has decided to kick signs and take names, by naming corporations and organization against proposition eight.  Of course the opposition views the Yo8 tactics tantamount to extortion.

Proposition 8 Vote in Perspective  According to the official Statement of the Vote released by the Secretary of State. Proposition 8 passed by a margin of 52.3% to 47.7%.

  • Prop. 8 received 2,150,000 more votes than did Arnold Schwarzenegger when he was reelected in 2006

California Supreme Court Takes Up Prop. 8 - The California Supreme Court has accepted original jurisdiction of three cases that claim Proposition 8 is a constitutional revision rather than a constitutional amendment and thus should not have been presented to voters. The implications of the Court’s order accepting the case, is that  a ruling on Prop 8’s validity can be expected in a matter of months, rather than potentially years of protracted litigation. The cases seeking to invalidate Proposition 8 are Strauss v. Horton, S168047; City and County of San Francisco v. Horton, S168078; and Tyler v. State of California, S168066.

BRCI-20, A Bureaucracy Realignment and Closure Initiative (BRCI) February 2009. BRCI, Solution to CA Budget Deficit - Do not leave Sacramento Without it ... The BRCI is patterned after the Base Closure and Realignment Commission. ...

California Governor's Vital Signs Show Mild Murmur In a speech to the Joint Session of the Legislature today, the transcript of Governor Schwarzenegger Addressing Joint Session of State Legislature indicate the Governor's willingness to propose "...once again to eliminate and consolidate more than a dozen state departments, boards and commissions. These include the Waste Management Board, the Court Reporters Board, the Department of Boating and Waterways and the Inspection and Maintenance Review Committee and so on."

 

CA, The Golden State – For Lobbyists, Unless  Chuck DeVore is Elected?

The corps of lobbyists is California's third house – Registered lobbyists outnumber lawmakers in Sacramento 8-to-1, then there are the government funded unregistered lobbyists!

In January,, California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called the state's massive budget deficit a "rock upon our chest" and said the crisis must be resolved before other policy issues are addressed. "The truth is that California is in a state of emergency. Addressing this emergency is the first and greatest thing we must do for the people," the governor said in his State of the State address before a joint session of the Legislature. "The $42 billion deficit is a rock upon our chest and we cannot breathe until we get it off."
