Last month, Los Angeles’ hapless mayor, Eric “Yoga Pants” Garcetti, finally announced he would not run for the Democrat nomination for president in 2020. This after he wasted everybody’s time and money traipsing around places like Iowa when he should have been minding the store at home.
That fact has been underlined this week with the revelations that typhus-TYPHUS– has broken out in and around the rat infested, flea infested City Hall.
It doesn’t take the Center for Disease Control to figure out the cause; the area around City Hall is filled with homeless encampments. The lack of hygiene, coupled with urine and feces on the sidewalks, and voila! Welcome back to the Middle Ages. All while the empty suit mayor was off testing the presidential waters.
But there was good news out of City Hall on Friday. A resolution affirmed that the city is, indeed, a sanctuary city. LA City Councilman, “One Bill Gil” Cedillo and Council President Herb Wesson, who had to have his flea-infested carpeting removed from his office, introduced this “blockbuster” back in September 2017. Things move slowly in LA and not just the traffic. (Cedillo earned his nickname when he was in state government in Sacramento for his never-ending efforts to allow driver’s licenses for illegal aliens in California.) Concerning those carpets having to be removed from City Hall, City Councilman Paul Koretz showed he knows about priorities when he stated his fervent hope that the carpets could be recycled. At least he didn’t ask for the fleas to be released back into the wild. Meanwhile, the New Sheriff in Town, Alex Villanueva, is sticking to his guns in not allowing ICE agents in the county jail to harass and deport those unfortunate illegal alien criminals.
Eventually, somebody will wake up and get the message that homeless encampments are not a good idea for society. If a typhus outbreak can’t do the job, I guess nothing will. One would have thought that cities like LA and SF would have woken up after illegal alien criminals murdered their citizens on the city streets. Incredibly, not even that has been enough to do the trick. Now LA’s own city hall is hit with a typus outbreak. Will it be enough to open their eyes to the blight that surrounds them every day as they go in and out of City Hall? Don’t hold your breath.
