FBI INVESTIGATES iPAD SCANDAL- TIME FOR YOU TO CALL THE FBI?

LAUSD logo.jpg
(Mensaje se repite en Español) The problem with endemic corruption that has existed at LAUSD for years- if not generations- is that it has gone unchallenged and has never been subjected to a truly independent audit of both its financial and other practices in order to finally hold LAUSD and its administration legally accountable for their actions. This has created a bully culture of impunity and unaccountability where those running LAUSD have come to think they can get away with anything. With this mindset LAUSD administration has allowed itself to become rather sloppy in the commission of its various ongoing crimes, so that an FBI federal grand jury investigation, if allowed to go where the evidence takes it, should easily be able to connect the dots to uncover the clear pattern of criminal behavior that heretofore has gone unpunished and often unreported in the media.

KEVIN COSTNER'S BLACK OR WHITE- BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

Black or White.jpg
(Mensaje se repite en Español) In a screening followed by a Q & A with Kevin Costner of his latest film Black or White at the Aero Theater America Cinematheque in Santa Monica, Mr. Costner not only gave us a most valuable clue to good movie making, he also suggested what might just be a timely solution in dealing with the neverending story of virulent racism. In a Hollywood driven more than ever by profit and not content Kevin Costner now the producer with his money on the line has chosen to "make the five or six movies that he shouldn't." If Black or White is any indication, one can only hope he continue down this less trodden path that will inspire others to realize that a good story might just be more important that special effects.

CAUTION! READING THIS MIGHT JUST GIVE YOU HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE

In the continuing war over Obamacare in this country, what seems lost in the debate is any discussion of just how good or bad the present American medical system really is in comparison to single-payer state run systems of healthcare in virtually every other industrialized country in the world. We are 27th in the world in infant mortality and a dispassionate examination of how healthcare is dispensed in America makes it clear that the profits of insurance companies that take 34% of every dollar spent on healthcare take precedence over what should be a patient centered practice of medicine. It is worth mentioning that this cost of administration is 3% in Canada for the same function and comparably low in other nationally administered medical systems around the world.
