Coto Cityhood, LAFCO and LAUGHCO

Posted By CotoBlogzz 05-13-2010 09:30

What part of NO, do parasitic bureaucracies such as LAFCO, do not understand?

While the state is broke amidst a financial tsunami and there is an exodus of business leaving the state for greener pastures in Arizona, Utah and Nevada, some politicians want to increase taxes.  Other parasitic bureaucracies such as  LAFCO and the CZ board continue to spend taxpayer money to push for cityhood.

Yesterday, LAFCO postponed for a fourth time a decision to force Rancho Santa Margarita to adopt Coto de Caza, the first step in the cityhood process, also known as sphere of influence.  LAFCO wants more time to study the issue.  Not unlike Sergio Prince’s recommendation to hire a “communications expert” to aid LAFCO staffers to get their communication act together.

The CZ board argues for cityhood to get “better services from county agencies such as the Sheriff’s department – this when Rancho Santa Margarita pays the county  $8.5 million dollars for OCSD services, yet not a single council members has a way to know whether that money is being used the way the taxpayers intended.

Leave to parasites and parasitic bureaucracies!

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."

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."
