New Blog Posts From Zuma Dogg for Monday, August 30, 2010 (News, Politics, Commentary & Comedy)

First of all, I moved my blogging from to BUT, if you use or (without the "" part) -- then you are already being directed to the new blog/site, without noticing.

BUT, if you are used to the URL -- or rely on the subscription feed that was being sent from that blog daily...the blog is shut down. So if you need to make any bookmark or subscription updates, do so over HERE... (That's the URL I like most. But if is still your URL of warm and fuzzy preference, then keep hittin' that.)

BUT THE MAIN POINT OF THIS POST is to say there is a lot of new content posted for today, from over the weekend at Some good comedy tweets on the news & political scene and some stuff you may find outrageous on how ZD feels some LAUSD students should be taught.

AND, if you don't like any of that...what ZD is most excited about is his new favorite net music stream, called (Maybe it's my favorite, cause I program it off my computer.) HOPE YOU LIKE THE MAGIC JUKEBOX OF HITS! More on that on the blog, too. (Whichever link you choose.)

My favorite is:

Due to my disabling condition, when I wake up in the morning, I am going to be IMMEDIATELY dealing with a panicked, crisis situation, alone! (And other News Tweets for 8/25/10)

[Pictured: 2 days ago]
  1. Due to my disabling condition, when I wake up in the morning, I am going to be IMMEDIATELY dealing with a panicked, crisis situation, alone.

  2. Due to the fact I've posted repeatedly that I'm currently disabled & may be long-term, yet no one is helping, may put blog on private later.

  3. LATimes: L.A. officials launch campaign to roll back state environmental rule. (To allow them to do whatever they want, whenever they want.)

  4. My friend saw Douchebag Dummy Mayor Antonio @Trader Joes tonight & took picture w him. But do I really need to see 1 more picture of mayor?

  5. IF I WANT TO KNOW WHAT MICHAEL HIGBY has to say on his dark energy blog, I'll just read it in LA Times 2 days before he gets to posting it.

  6. Michael Shitby's Dark Energy CLOWN BLOG can say what they want about me. What has any jackass over there ever done? How many 1000s stop him?

  7. Shitby's dark energy blog can approve comments saying it's fun to make fun of ZD, but have you SEEN HIM? Talk about a lot to make fun of.

  8. DUE TO TECHNICAL DELAY, the one-time, LIVE webcast video announcement I was going to make at 3:30a, has been bumped to 4:30a. TUNE IN LIVE!

  9. Doesn't matter if u Clean Sweep entire council, L.A. County is SO un-prepared to deal w next 2 yrs. WAY TOO INEFFICIENT. Bottom to fall out.

  10. NEVER BEEN MORE SERIOUS: If you're someone planning/relying on GOOD L.A.'s economy over next 15yrs, GET OUT ASAP, NOW! SHARP decline coming!

  11. RT@latimes: As economy fears deepen... (WHAT economy fears? Didn't you see L.A. budget? Revenue projections UP! Counting 8% Wall St return!)

  12. RT@latimes: As economy fears deepen, everybody wants what Treasury sells. (WHAT economy fears? Greig Smith optimistic it's bouncing back!)

  13. I WISH KABC morning talk show clown Peter Tilden would stop spending MOST OF ENTIRE SHOW promoting what's coming up AND JUST DO F-ING SHOW.

  14. Can't listen to Kevin James' radio show anymore in new 12mid slot. NOT cause I'm sleeping: I can't get all worked up on issues @ that hour.

  15. RT@MattSzabo: The glass, previously thought to be half-full, is in fact half-empty! (NO MATT, your HEAD is half-empty & your pic is creepy.)

  16. RT @LosAngelesCP:Lo & Behold: Lindsay Gets Sprung From Rehab! (Let the good times roll, baby! She's free and clear for partying good times!)

  17. DRIVER ADVISORY ALERT: Actress Lindsay Lohan has been released from rehab and out and about among the general population. Be extra careful.

  18. New Content Posted at Zuma Dogg's L.A. Daily Blog - A Twitter Rush of Political News & Comedy Commentary

  19. RT@KFIAM640: Topless protester from Venice Beach on now (Have never seen a topless protester at Venice MORE in need of wearing a top!)

  20. @ZumaDogg fan emails picture of @Villaraigosa taken 10 minutes ago at Trader Joes. Tony's daughter snapped pic. No one else recognized him.

  21. If ZD were the movie Titanic, we're at the part where Leo was in the water, hangin' on to Kate's hand as he's about to be sucked into abyss.

  22. CATCH UP ON THE SEVERAL DAY TWITTER ROLL, BELOW: Looks like it's over. Tomorrow (Wed) is gonna be too challenging. Already panicking.

  23. Wednesday is gonna be the kind of day for me where I wish my PARENTS weren't even born. What a NIGHTMARE. Wish tomorrow didn't have to come.

  24. I YOU HAVEN'T READ MY BLOG THIS WEEK; on a tweeting news & politics comedy roll. RT@philjennerjahn: ZD tweets are on fire the last few days.

  25. ZUMA DOGG SOLVES LAUSD ACHIEVEMENT PROBLEM!: Need to bring in some people good at relating to kids...OOPS, supposed to HAVE that: TEACHERS!

  26. Don't whine to me about your city hall stuff. Unless you're telling me how you can help ME make it through day, since I'm disabled, go away.

  27. @ZumaDogg will make a ONE-TIME ANNOUNCEMENT, LIVE via video webcast on his blog, tonight (Wed morn) at 3:30AM. It WILL NOT be repeated.

  28. People LOVE ya when you aren't disabled; runnin' all over the city to every meeting. But once disabled and not, people don't care, at all.

  29. NEW LAUSD SCHOOL costs half a billion dollars. That's $135,000 per student? Just give each student he money, won't have to go to school.

  30. Was about to go outside to get a small snack at mini-mart. WHAT? 2am! Everything closed within miles, now! Time flies when making playlists.

  31. HIPSTERS REJOYCE: Now Streaming at - ELECTRONIC TRANCE...great chill music for overnight! ZD's FAVE MIX.

  32. Unfortunately, I'm at least temporarily disabled, if not longer-term & need additional assistance, but am on own w no car, so getting worse.

  33. Zuma Dogg News, Politics & Cranky Commentary for Tuesday, August 24, 2010

  34. What separates ZD from talk show host and most political bloggers. ZD DOESN'T feel compelled to cover it once in LA Times. Other wait UNTIL.

  35. What separates ZD from short-sighted, simple activists: They are worried about their NC fund.I'm worried about BILLIONS of GENERAL FUND $.

  36. What separates ZD from other nutty, small potato activists? About 2 years from the time I say it till the time they do, when it's too late.

  37. What separates @ZumaDogg from average, hot-air, NIMBY activist. ZD realizes what happens Downtown affects services in Sunland-Tujunga, etc.

  38. Happy Clean Sweep folks are doing stuff. But never got email about "quality/prodtvy" training. So please don't send me one on anything else.

  39. RT @philjennerjahn: @zumadogg Zuma Dogg is a genius. He was one screaming loudest about L.A. blowing the pension money on Wall St. (Whoops!)

  40. RT @latimes: Nine out of 10 tweens play online games, research shows. (Because 9 out of 10 parents don't know how to be parents.)

NOW STREAMING: New Stone Temple Pilots LP - Review, New Songs & LIVE Tracks....

Stone Temple Pilots have a new album out and I'm so excited about how good it is that I am streaming a preview and review along with new LIVE tracks at Check it out. If you are a fan of STP (and who isn't), you'll be thrilled with the new album, cause it totally delivers on what you want from STP and is their most diverse and best songwriting and overall production. Dean's guitar solo on "Hickory Dichotomy" is the sickest solo since Foghat's "Slowride."
(Way to go Dean!) Check out some tracks here:

Former Mayor Sam Readers Weigh In on Demise of Mayor Sam Blog

Here's a comment from Mayor Sam's blog today from one of his former readers:

Speaking of shooting yourself in the foot. Have you read your blog, lately?

Gosh, you're not kidding. Congrats Mayor Sam, you've successfully turned you blog into the Phil Jennerjahn/Mary Cummins circle jerk. Home of Los Angeles Politics, my ass. You really should add Mary to your list of contributors, since 90% of the comments are from her.

MayorSam, Home of the Phil Jennerjahn Circle Jerk and the School of Sleazy Politics. Congrats! I'm sure you're all so fucking proud.

Thanks for ruining what used to be my favorite blog with your childish, repub PR machine fuckery and petty bullying of Phil. When you start focusing back on the City, I'll be back. For now, I'm heading over to

Michael K. is a much more mature and articulate blogger.

May 15, 2010 10:44 PM

UPDATE: Anti-Sun Tzu strategist Michael "Dark Energy" Hibgy of Mayor Slam's blog warns ZD that bloggers who delete posts have to beware search engines that keep permanent copy on internet. What he doesn't understand, is I am not trying to HIDE the bi-polar-fueled posts in my darkest, most turbulent hours...but when I get the right nutrition in my system, and I'm off to the races (crisis mitigated) I don't want that type of energy out there. I know it makes people uncomfortable and my own friends and those close to me get nervous. BUT I HAVE TO POST THAT AT THE TIME FOR MY OWN OUTLET AND CHANNEL...AND YOU SHOULDN'T READ IT, MAYOR SAM READERS. But Higby allows people to blog about my escalating serious issue in his comment section, just for clicks...and exploits the situation. HE HAS HIS OWN MIRROR HE SHOULD BE LOOKING INTO. TAKE A LOOK AT HIM! HE SHOULD BE SPENDING 100% OF HIS PERSONAL TIME ON HIS OWN PERSONAL HEALTH...NO OFFENSE. But that's the most compassionate thing I can say to the guy. But anyway, screw that dark energy clown. Let him take all my terrible, desperate, bi-polar postings and repost them. IT'S NOT LIKE I CARE, EXCEPT FOR THE REASON I MENTIONED. But if HE'S into spreading that energy, it's on him! THE REASON I TAKE THEM DOWN, IS BECAUSE WHEN I AM COOLED DOWN (thanks today, to a friend from outside L.A. City)...I DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO WORRY...and if Higby didn't promote it in the comment section of his blog, a lot less people may have ever seen it. BUT HE AIN'T ABOUT THE FRAUD, WASTE AND ABUSE THAT IS DIMINISHING YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE. HE'S ON SOME KIND OF DEGENERATE MISSION THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH COMMUNITY BENEFIT.

Here's something relating to the general fund and fraud, waste and abuse.
