YOU CAN'T OUTSOURCE EVERYTHING

In manufacturing industries it is common to use make or buy charts in determining whether it makes more economic sense to make some sub-parts that go into the manufacture of products manufactured by the firm or to outsource them.

You can most clearly see this with automobile manufacturers who commonly buy brake parts, trim items and much more from other firms that specialize in the manufacture of those parts and who can usually produce them cheaper than the automobile manufacturer can produce them.

However, some things are better done in house by the automobile manufacturers themselves.

As Costa Mesa moves forward with outsourcing some jobs that have heretofore been done in house, it is wise to keep in mind that some things may also be better done in house by our City government with City employees.

Exactly what is best done in house and what is best outsourced is the real question.  Some jobs just lend themselves to being outsourced, but some others need study.

So, as we think along these lines, we logically come to wondering about joining forces with other cities in various cooperative agreements such that rather than outsourcing to the private sector, we might want to outsource or join with other cities to provide services at the best price and quality to the residents of those cities.

BI-CITY OR TRI-CITY COOPERATIVE?


Costa Mesa and Newport Beach are natural partners. Huntington Beach, while somewhat less so, is still in our orb.

It seems to make sense for the cities to have some captive plumbers, some captive electricians, some captive mechanics, just to name three trades, but does it make sense for each of the cities to have their own plumbers, electricians and mechanics? Might there be some efficiencies if these and some other trades are put under a new quasi-public, paper entity that services both or all three cities?

If the new paper entity is created so that it uses existing admin and payroll staff of the cities, and thus has no non-trade overhead, then it might be worth considering.

Of course, whether this is a good or a bad idea will largely depend on whether those in the above and other trades now working for the individual cities are completely busy all the time, or if they have days when there is nothing to do. If the latter is the case, then combining the trades so that they work for both or all three cities might make sense.

PHOTOS OF KLITSCHKO AND HAYE MAY TELL THE TALE OF SATURDAY'S FIGHT

Klitschko, on the top, looks less defined but has broad shoulders--almost swimmer's shoulders--and good bicep development. But check his lats and his delts, that's where the power punching comes from as he twists from the waist to deliver a punch.

Haye, on the bottom, looks as though he trained for a body building contest instead of a prize fight. The former requires a lot of definition, but doesn't require actual strength or movement. He looks as though he can deliver a solid punch straight on, but it'll mostly be an arm punch.

When I was in the Marines, the Marine who had a bunk near mine won the Mr. New York title in a body building contest.  His muscles looked more like Haye's than Klitschko's.  The problem was that he was muscle bound.  He couldn't touch the back of his head with his hands and was restricted in some other movements as well. As a result of his muscular development, he also wasn't very quick.

If Klitschko throws more left and right hooks than right crosses, I predict a knockout. 

Klitschko is not usually a fast starter, as he tends to size up his opponents in the early rounds. So, if he does knock out Haye, it'll probably be in one of the later rounds.  Haye can take a punch, so Klitschko has to hit the right spots with some precision.  And, those right spots are on the side of the neck below the ear.

THE GOOD BOOK OF WHATEVER IS HAPPEN' NOW

Religion professor writes a long and boring column trying to justify gay marriage in a Biblical sense.

He writes: "[T]he Bible is a complicated collection of documents that was never meant to 'speak' to our contemporary situation...."

In other words, by using the above quoted sentence,whatever is trendy and pushed in any age can be made to seem to be accepted by the Bible.

Nature, on the other hand, says 'go forth and multiply your kind or you'll go extinct.' No equivocation.  No reinterpretation to be trendy.  No pandering to this or that group of humans.  No concern if anyone is offended or doesn't like this natural law. It's just an immutable law that stands for all times. Breed or die.

Gay marriage, it may be divined, does not lead to the multiplication of your kind.

STILL NO WORD ON A NEW POLICE CHIEF FOR CM
[Photo of A-Frame sign pulled around Costa Mesa during the last election by out of town cops who butted into our election. This sign has come to represent what most citizens do not want from a police department.]

Some of the folks are not happy with the secrecy surrounding the selection of a new police chief.

We don't know who is involved in interviewing the prospective chiefs, but we've heard that at least three citizens whose names are a secret are part of the interview process. Furthermore, we don't even know who is being interviewed.

The City has not done a good job in selecting chiefs in the past, so many in the community are concerned about being shut out of this process. 

Will yet another lefty get the job who will ignore the wishes of the legal residents and give away free food to illegal aliens and let them know that they're welcome in Costa Mesa (a city  in which former chiefs have not lived)?

Expect outrage from activist citizens if the wrong person is selected again.

Word has quickly spread among the oddly dressed Mad Maxian horde (or people from San Francisco) that Costa Mesa is now defenseless as it has cut 3.5% from the police budget.

The battle cry is on every lip:  Attack Costa Mesa, the City has a balanced budget!


Yes, dear friends, the word is out.  The lefties who had filled City Council meetings recently had warned us about the dire consequences of balancing our budget. Now, the end is near.  Doom looms. The Ice Cream trucks are on the way to Costa Mesa.

The question now is whether Costa Mesa is going to be attacked by the horde first or fall into the ocean before that happens.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH UNIONS

I wasn't a very good waiter (but I did work as one for a time--a short time), so when I was acting in  New York City I did office work to pay the rent.

When I was hired by the New York Times to work in their HQ just off Times Square, I was handed some papers to sign to join a union.  I said I didn't want to join the union.  I was told that if I wanted the gig at the Times I had to join the union.  So, I joined.

Then, as an actor, I wanted to join the Screen Actors Guild ( a union by another name), but I was told that I couldn't join because I had just been doing stage plays and hadn't at that time appeared in a movie.

So, I set out to get some small part in a movie.  Then I was told that I couldn't appear in a movie because I wasn't in SAG. 

You see the problem. You can't be in SAG unless you're in a movie and you can't be in a movie unless you're in SAG.

Finally, I went on a cattle call for a SAG film.  The deal was that the director had to interview all the SAG actors who were right for the part  before he could even look at non-SAG actors like me.  If he didn't like any of the SAG actors, he could then pick a non-SAG actor.

The director wanted me for the part.  That's how I joined SAG.

Unions are funny things. When you don't want to join, you have to. When you do want to join, you can't.

We're sure the Council did listen. 

However, it seems to us that the four adults on the Council are smart enough to know that opinions should be weighed not counted, and it appears that's what the Council did.

The proof is in the pudding.  We have a balanced budget.  And, it's big news whenever any government entity balances its budget and lives within its means.

I CONDUCTED AN AUDIT AT THE CM PRESS AND FOUND POTS OF GOLD HIDDEN AWAY!

Well, I've used Union Pal Wendy Leece's logic and discovered that I'm not broke after all.

Before the audit I actually thought I didn't have money for lots of things--such as a new Bentley or a new boat.

But, I did an audit and found I had money set aside in my left pocket for medical needs, insurance payments, food  and a whole bunch of other things that I don't have to pay right this minute. 

So, I just transferred that money from my left pocket to my right pocket and I've decided I have plenty of money and I can go out and spend it on other things right now.

What?  You say that wouldn't be prudent and those bills for medical, insurance, food and all that other stuff are going to come due?

Stop thinking that way.  You're thinking too fast.  Think like Leece.  Go slow.  Remember, In God We Trust.

HOW TO RESTORE FAITH AND CONFIDENCE IN THE CMPD

Many citizens of Costa Mesa no longer have much faith or confidence in the CMPD. 

What can the CMPD do to regain the  faith and confidence of the citizens of Costa Mesa?

--It can vow to keep the cops out of our local politics and to ask the cop unions to stop endorsing candidates and giving them money.

--It can stop cops from helping illegal aliens feel comfortable in Costa Mesa.  At last night's meeting, a guy who works with a charity in the Shalimar slum praised the CMPD for sending officers to schmooze with suspected illegal aliens in the slum.

--It can encourage more cops--including the chief and top brass--to actually live here in Costa Mesa and become our neighbors and important parts of our community. We don't need cops who act like an invading force.

--It can have cops actually respond to quality of life calls instead of clearing the calls with "unable to locate" (which is often a lie).

--It can get rid of the haters and bigots in the department.  Many of these can be located by properly using their hate filled comments in the Daily Pilot.  Clearly, some of these haters and bigots have psychological problems and need to be shown the door.

There's more, but the above five suggestions would go a long way to regaining the trust and confidence of the citizens of Costa Mesa.

City to schedule Council study session on employees association’s audit of Costa Mesa budget


Costa Mesa's City CEO Tom Hatch said today that he will thoroughly review the financial analysis of Costa Mesa’s budget paid for by the Orange County Employees Assn. as soon as he gets a complete copy and will then  schedule a City Council study session to discuss the findings.

The Orange County Employees Assn. provided Hatch an executive summary of the analysis, and  Mayor Gary Monahan will give the association time at this evening’s City Council meeting to summarize the findings.

“Once we have the audit in hand, we will provide a full response as quickly as possible,” Hatch said. “I’ll also ask the association to make a presentation at a council study session so the Council members and public can have a thorough understanding of what’s being proposed.”

The CM PRESS believes it is a mistake to just let the OCEA make a presentation based on a bullet point executive summary, unless there is a rapid response counter presentation from the City's financial department presented just after the OCEA presentation.

What is likely to happen tonight is that the OCEA will trot out some partial figures based on union favorable assumptions and projections that will put the City in a bad light.

Unless there is an immediate response from the City, those figures will grow legs and be used for PR purposes to bash the City Council until the City can respond at a study session.

WHAT HAPPENED TO STAVELEY?
[Yes, in case you were wondering, we often use the A-Frame sign on a trailer as the symbol for the CMPD.]
Sure, Chief Staveley is a retired cop and the years may have caught up with him, but the resignation letter he sent was so beyond the pale, so self-destructive, so unprofessional and so childish that one has to feel sorry for the guy.

A letter so devoid of facts, so full of name calling, so replete with invective is not the sort of letter one expects from a top executive and someone who was gifted with a caretaker position until a permanent chief could be found.

One has to wonder if the toxic internal politics and the hate and bigotry coming from the lefty clique within the CMPD are so strong and mind numbing that Staveley simply got caught up in the arrogant and unprofessional culture that appears to be the stock in trade of a few individuals in the department who may wield far more influence than they should and who want to control the City Council and the city for their own benefit and to use their uniforms to push their lefty agenda.

A WHOPPING 82% OF COSTA MESA'S 575 EMPLOYEES DON'T CHOOSE TO LIVE IN THIS CITY

Yet, many of these out of town employees have been used to running Costa Mesa for years. 

Now that we have a City Council that is trying to take control of this city for those who actually do live here, we are seeing the out of town employee unions having all sorts of hissy fits.

And, what about the budget and layoffs?  Even if the City is not going broke, should we still pay more for services that we can get them elsewhere?  Is that how you do things in your family?  Do you pay more for a gallon of milk at one store when you can get the same thing at a much better price at the store next door?

Folks, what is going on in Costa Mesa right now, is more than just about a budget.  It's about who runs Costa Mesa.

Our view at the CM PRESS has always been that it is the citizens of a city who should be in charge.  And, that's the way our electoral system is set up.  We get to vote for members of the City Council who will supposedly act in our best interests.  Why would they act in our best interests?  Because they also live here in Costa Mesa.

Unfortunately, the system has become corrupt and out of town unions have been able to buy Council members over the years who then pay back the out of town unions with golden goose contracts that screw the citizens of the city.

The majority on the Council is trying to stop that.  They're trying to give the government back to the citizens of Costa Mesa.

Chief Staveley is a retired cop who was  hired as a temporary caretaker until a new permanent chief could be hired. 

Unfortunately, it appears that  Staveley may have gotten too emotionally involved in his recommendations to the City Council, and because they are apparently not being accepted, he has decided to leave.

Stavely was last in the news, it may be remembered, when he apparently didn't realize that the report he had received on Huy Pham showed cocaine in Pham's system. 

Then, when it finally came out that there was cocaine, Stavely indicated that the results might not really show cocaine but might be a false positive from other medications, including a topical solution used for injuries.  This was quickly shot down by medical personnel.

HAS THE POLICE CHIEF SELECTION PROCESS BEEN COMPROMISED?

In comments following the Daily Pilot column about possible reductions in the CMPD [HERE] we see the following comment from Greg Ridge who, as usual, is hiding behind the name Gericault77:

"Gericault77 at 7:33 AM June 18, 2011

"Dr. Kirk Bauermiester sat on the citizen panel and made the same recommendation. This council isn't listening to ANYBODY. Unlike you....who should not be listening to thiose voces in your head."

However, Bill Lobdell just emailed the CM PRESS and said:

"There was no citizen panel on police reductions."

So, maybe Ridge got things mixed up (not an unlikely possibility with this guy who even spelled Bauermeister's name wrong) and could it be that Bauermeister is actually on the police chief selection panel, not on the non-existent police reduction panel?


Well, Lobdell has this to Say about that:


"Until a new police chief is selected, the names of the panelists (citizen, employee and police) are confidential so the process can't be influenced."

The main questions now are: Is Bauermeister on the panel to select a new police chief or not?  And, if he is, then how did Ridge learn about it if this is supposed to be confidential?  And, has the process to select a new police chief now been compromised?

NB: As you may know, Kirk Bauermeister is the principal at Estancia High School--the same place where Joel Flores of chest bump fame works.

ALL THE LEFTIES, OUT OF TOWN UNIONS AND SHILLS AGREE--COSTA MESA NEEDS MORE UNION EMPLOYEES

Without more union employees, there will be fewer dues to go into a slush fund to try to elect boot lickers to the City Council who will shaft residents of Costa Mesa and rob them blind to give Cadillac salaries and benefits to the out of town employees.

In case you missed it, in CM PRESS # 529 [HERE] we told you where most of the out of town employees actually live.  Interestingly, and as far as we know, no other blogs or newspapers picked up on that story that we got by making repeated public requests to the city government.

CM PRESS # 534

FOLLOW THE OUT OF TOWN COP UNION MONEY

As you may recall, the CM PRESS did follow the out of town cop union money before the last election.

In fact, we even published the legally required disclosure forms showing  money going to Costa Mesa First from the out of town cop unions. 

Costa Mesa First is or was Greg Ridge and Sandy Genis. Ridge is the punk who keeps trying to smear me by throwing my name into posts where there is no logical reason to do so. He hides behind the name "Gericault" or "Gericault77."

If you want to see those forms again, just go back to CM PRESS # 282 of October 10, 2010, CM PRESS # 285 of October 13, 2010 and CM PRESS # 295 of October 23, 2010.

What was happening back then was that the out of town cop unions were giving money to Costa Mesa First (Ridge and Genis, remember), which  used some of that money in  trying to defeat Jim Righeimer by buying signs and printing leaflets for  Chris McEvoy and to prop up Wendy Leece. 

When you hear Leece, who lives in a gated community, now self-righteously say we shouldn't reduce the size of the police department or contract with the sheriff or cut back the helicopter, you should remember all the money the out of town cop unions used on Leece's behalf.

Why is any of the above relevant now? 

Because some of the out of town cops--with a few local shills and boot lickers--are still trying to control our city and dictate to the City Council about what the Council should do or not do to get our financial house in order.

Most thinking citizens of Costa Mesa don't want out of town cops to run our city. 

These thinking citizens want our city run by people who live here.

They want people who have their kids in our schools, who shop in our markets, who sleep in homes in Costa Mesa to determine what is right for Costa Mesa.

All the City Councilmembers fill the bill. They live in Costa Mesa.  They have their kids in our schools.  They shop in our markets.  They sleep in homes here in Costa Mesa. 

The City Councilmembers are the representatives of the citizens of Costa Mesa.  They are the ones who make the decisions--not the out of town cops or other out of town employees.

Despite all the talk from the chicken littles about Costa Mesa becoming unsafe or unlivable, the fact is that the City Council members don't want an unsafe city or a city that doesn't deliver necessary services to residents--because they and their families live with the conditions that exist or will exist in this city.

WILL WE SEE SOME SUDDEN RESIGNATIONS IN COSTA MESA?

Now that the City has hired a private investigative firm--Talon Executive Services--to do some work for the City, will some haters and bigots suddenly decide it's time to leave?

Here's the link to Talon.

Take a few minutes to look around Talon's Website.  You may note some interesting areas of claimed expertise.

Is Talon any good at what it does?  We'll have to wait and see.

NMUSD WANTS CITY TO PAY HALF OF COST OF COPS ON CAMPUS

How about having the NMUSD stop paying full salaries to two superintendents--one who is actually working and the other who is on leave to fight criminal charges up in Los Angeles?

Then, use that money to help pay for the cops on campus.

BTW, Katrina Foley was the only school board member who didn't want to keep paying the super who's in legal trouble. The rest treat the NMUSD as some sort of private club  and they circle the wagons to protect board members and staff that they work closely with.

Katrina's a lefty on most issues, but she often (but not always) comes across as a fiscal conservative. 

So, maybe there's hope with some sort of twelve step program to wean her away from the liberal joy juice.

COP UNION NOT HAPPY ABOUT POSSIBLE REDUCTIONS IN CMPD
With fewer out of town cops on the force trying to buy councilmembers to do their bidding, there will also be fewer cops to hook A-Frame  signs, such as the one pictured, behind their Cadillac Escalades to drag around town to try to smear a candidate and embarrass him in front of his kids.

Why, it may mean that the voters of Costa Mesa will get to have an election in which we won't see as many candidates selling their souls to out of town unions in order to get campaign support and money.

GREG RIDGE USES MY NAME IN VAIN AGAIN
 [The guy in the photo with the idiot's smile on his face  is Greg Ridge as he appeared in the OC Register.]

Greg Ridge, who hides behind the name Gericault (pity the long dead real Gericault who must be turning over in his grave), crawled out from under his rock to post his latest egregious and childish attempt at a smear today as he posted this in the Daily Pilot today:

Gericault77 at 9:56 AM June 17, 2011
$175 an hr, so Millard and his Kool aid Cadre can satisfy their sick conspiracy theories.......this City has jumped the Shark. [Link to full article with all comments.]

Huh?  When I first read the above, I didn't even know what sick or even un-sick conspiracy theories this guy was talking about.  And "Kool aid Cadre"?  Whodat?

I searched my memory banks. Hmmm. Suddenly, my eyes narrowed to a squint. Read on and you'll see that Ridge may have inadvertently revealed something. 

Never trust  fools if you're a conspirator, they just can't help but blabbing. It's a function of a low I.Q.

Now, before we go on, you'll note that there was no reason for Ridge to use my name.  I'm  not the subject of the story.  I didn't write the story.  My name doesn't appear in the story.  I have nothing to do with the story. 

So what was it that oozed up from Ridge's shallow subconscious mind into the bright light of day? 

"Cuckoo, cuckoo."  Well, yes, that oozed up, but there's more.

Hmmm. "Conspiracy."

I wondered. Where had I heard that term used in a context where it doesn't belong before like this?

Aha! Got it.  I've written about this previously, but here it is again:

Sometime ago, a CMPD cop stopped me as I was legally driving down the street.  The cop had apparently seen me getting into the CM PRESSMOBILE as he was driving by on a street perpendicular to where the pressmobile was parked. 

As I drove onto the the main street, I could see the cop car about a half mile ahead of me on an otherwise deserted street going in the same direction as I was. 

Suddenly, the cop did a u-turn in the middle of the street and came back my way.  He passed slowly by my car while staring at me--"stink eye" comes to mind--apparently to make sure it was me. 

Presumably being satisfied that I was who he thought I was, he then did another u-turn and pulled in right behind the pressmobile, which was in the slow lane, and tailgated me very closely for about a quarter of a mile. I mean, this guy was right on my rear bumper.

After witnessing his u-turns I had purposely slowed down to be sure I was just under the speed limit by a couple of mph so I wouldn't get a speeding ticket. 

Finally, he pulled me over.  I asked why.  He replied "Impeding."  Impeding? The street was empty of cars except for the CMPD vehicle and mine, and this cop purposely went out of his way to get behind the pressmobile in the slow lane.  Had he so chosen, he could have used the other lane.  This was obviously a crock and was nothing but harassment.

Even though they are required to have them showing, this cop had no badge and no name tag on his uniform.  He wasted my time for about 15 minutes and then let me go with no citation. 

One thing that the cop said before letting me go was odd and this brings me back to Ridge who, you will recall, got money from the cop union, under the aegis of Costa Mesa First, to try to defeat Jim Righeimer.  Without any cue from me, the cop suddenly, out of the blue, blurted out: "This isn't a conspiracy."  Huh?  I hadn't said anything about a conspiracy at all. In fact, I had said nothing at all but to politely ask why I was being stopped and for the cop's name.  

This same cop got into a bar fight about a month later and this was widely reported.

Hmmm. Maybe there really is a conspiracy.  Remember, a conspiracy only takes two people. What else are we to think when we have lefties and cops denying that there is a conspiracy when no one has even mentioned one in the first place? Me thinks they doth protest too much and without good reason to doth protest.

So, tell us Ridge, what conspiracy theories do you think are out there?  Do they involve you and some cops? Do people think you're getting leaked information from some in the CMPD?  Do you know the cop who stopped me?  Why did both of you bring up conspiracy theories out of the blue this way?

THE ANONYMOUS HATERS AND BIGOTS ARE ALREADY AFRAID BECAUSE COSTA MESA HAS HIRED A PRIVATE EYE TO LOOK INTO THE PHAM DEATH...AND MAYBE SOME OTHER THINGS AS WELL?

Be sure to read their usual hate filled comments after the article in the Daily Pilot about this.

We're just guessing, but if you were on the City Council, wouldn't you want this guy, if he's any good, to also look into the brick incident, the leaks and problems in the CMPD, and some other matters?
