Podcast Part 1 Greenhut on OC Pension lawsuit, Linda Serrato on Parent Trigger& Part 2 Rudy Martinez, Bob Blue, Greenhut on LA and Glendale Redevelopment

Rudy Martinez, local resident, born and raised in East LA is fighting to curb the looting of Los Angeles by titan developers and their enablers and assistants at LA City Hall.   Star of Flip this House, LA, he is a successful local small business owner, and independent real estate developer who cultivates good local businesses, environment and good neighbors.    He poses a formidable challenge to sitting council member, Huizar in up coming City Council races in March.

Rudy Martinez joins Bob Blue, local LA blogger, reporter and champion property rights activist, and Steven Greenhut, to discuss Bob Blue’s recent column on why Glendale and Los Angeles are the poster children for why the CA Redevelopment Agency CRA should be abolished, including the most recent looting of millions of dollars and attempted looting of one billion dollars by CRA/LA and the battle between Ray Patel, owner of the Golden Key Hotel in Glendale and Los Angeles resident billionaire and developer, Rick Caruso, who is seeking and getting CRA/Glendale’s  support to obtain ownership of  Patel’s property that is not for sale!

Public Employee Pensions is a steaming hot topic particularly in California!
Steven Greenhut
, editor in chief at CalWatchDog and the author of Plunder: How Public Employee Unions are Raiding Treasuries, Controlling Our Lives and Bankrupting the Nation, talks with us about the Orange County Board of Supervisors sending their legal battle over a retroactive compensation increase up to the State Supreme Court–an act that  pushes  for decisive resolution on the issue statewide.   How significant is this development?

Linda Serrato, Communications Director with the Parent Revolution, joins us to talk about the unjust scene at the Capitol on Wednesday, between impassioned parents and the political class of servants to the teacher’s union lobby. Parent Caroll Turner will also speak with us.

The Parent-trigger, which we covered on this program last Saturday is suspended until the adversaries who fought it, can revise it and make it to their liking.   The trouble is, the parents have tasted the power and responsibility that is inherent in having say over important matters like the education for their children, and they are not rolling over.   Meet one of the parents and Linda Serrato, Communications Director with Parent Revolution for an update on this epic battle for the future of our children.

State Board of Education puts the brakes on parent-trigger law A group will be appointed to study how to implement the measure, which lets parents petition for sweeping reforms at low-performing schools. Critics see it as an attempt to derail the law.

Fox News 11 flew out to Sacramento to film a segment on the Parent Trigger hearing and they nailed it on the head, how confusing the process was and how passionate these parents are.

My recent post on the Parent Trigger developments as of Thursday, Feb 10, 2011

My mission for this radio program is (and I quote here the mission statement of  The Future of Freedom Foundation, with whom I have no affiliation other than that I agree with their stated mission,  by which I am inspired and for which I stand, to the best of my ability), “to advance freedom by providing an uncompromising moral and economic case for individual liberty, free markets, private property, and limited government.”

Make us your nightcap on Saturday nights in Southern California or where ever you are. California is a land of beauty and unlimited possibility because of the abundance of our greatest capital resource, our human resources.   Join us.

Federal Salaries Explode posted at by Chris Edwards

That’s the subject of a USA Today analysis, which reveals an outrageous increase in salaries at the top levels of the federal workforce. I’ve been complaining about excessive federal pay for some time based on one set of data, and now Dennis Cauchon provides strong support for my thesis using a different set of data.

Cauchon finds that since the economy fell into recession, the number of federal workers earning more than $150,000 has more than doubled. The federal government has become extremely bloated and top heavy, even as families and businesses across the nation have had to tighten their belts. With 383,000 workers earning six-figure salaries, the government has become an elite island of overcompensated administrators immune from the competitive job realities of average families.

There are a remarkable 22,000 federal civilians earning salaries of over $170,000, illustrating that Big Government works for the benefit of well-off insiders, not average Americans. And Cauchon only looks at salaries and wages. Average annual federal benefits are more than $41,000, which pushes total federal compensation even further ahead of the private sector average.
