Governor stop trying to blame Speaker Karen Bass

Okay, for all of you USC haters who have been waiting to rub it in. Go ahead have your fun! The mighty Trojans have fallen and you guys have been dying to rub it in our faces for quite a while. Eric Lee if you tell me one more time about the Great Cal Bears I am gonna scream. But that is okay, all of you, your day is gonna come. Just wait.

Well now that I have that out of the way, let’s get to some straight talk about what is going on in our city and our state for that matter. First off, as we all know the City of Los Angeles is broke, but it certainly was not our community that broke it. It seems that we are always the last to get anything anyway, so why is it that after they spent all this money fixing up other areas in the City now they want to say there is no money for the stuff our community needs. Someone needs to get their priorities in order and South L.A./Watts Willowbrook needs to be priority #1.

Then there is the State of California and the Governator. Well, Governor stop trying to blame Speaker Karen Bass for the financial crisis of the state. What the speaker did was took you and your Republican friends on and refused to allow you to rape and pillage the services OUR community so desperately needs. Our community needs foster care, our community needs assistance for the elderly, our community needs assistance for the homeless and our community needs jobs. Maybe, your community doesn’t and maybe the communities of your Republican buddies don’t but ours do, so stop trying to call our Democratic representatives wasteful, and foolish spenders and realize we sent them there to represent us and that is just what they have done.

Now I want everyone to call, write or email the governor and the other Republican representatives and tell them to layoff of our representatives because they are doing exactly what we sent them to Sacramento to do. Represent US!

Congratulations to Assembly member Steve Bradford who had to immediately get sworn in and go to work in Sacramento. Speaker Bass needed as much help as she could and she made sure Steve got up there in a hurry to help her out.

So now I really need your input. I need to hear from you now more than ever. I need to know what is going on in our community. I also need to know what other stories we need to tell, and what is on your mind. I really do want to hear from you, I want you to “Talk to Danny.”
