Sherman, Berman Two Shower-Shouting Locker Room Loonies

Dateline: Van Nuys Swimming Pool

There They Go Again – Howie Berman vs Brad Sherman

A One Round Fracus in the Van Nuys Pool Locker Room








Berman (Left) “You wanna piece of me?”

Sherman (Right) “I already got it Howie!”

So according to my two witnesses, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, Howard Berman and Brad Sherman swim often at the Pool in Van Nuys.  “But usually they don’t come at the same time” says Mr. Y.

“This morning”, says Mr. Z, “They both show at once, and the fireworks started!”

Mr. Y:  “They get in the locker room and they start screaming at each other.  Berman is yelling at Sherman, ‘You traitor, you stabbed me in the back!’  Serman is yelling back ‘F&%$ You, you’re a f&(%$ing crook!’  I thought they were going to come to blows.”

Mr. Z:  “Boy, those two guys really HATE each other.  I mean, we had to jump in between them.  They were screaming and waving their fists around.”

Berman, 71, served as a Representative in the Valley since 1983.  He is known as “Hollywood’s Congressman” by some, and “Studio Lap Dog” by detractors.  The entertainment industry showered him with money during this last election, over $400,000.  He certainly needed the dough, he was always traveling, in fact often accused of being on the road more than he was in Congress.  But re-districting has done him in, he had to run against a fellow Democrat, Brad Sherman, who beat him big time.  Some folks in his district described him as “aloof” and even “arrogant”.  He was such a shoe-in for election victory that he hardly had to campaign; just have a few dinners to raise some dough, and off on a “fact-finding” cruise to Europe.

Sherman, 58, has served in government and Congress for a while.  While Berman was lounging in foreign lands, Sherman was holding scores of Town Hall meetings, quietly building up support that proved more than enough to counter the big bucks from Hollywood.

Back to the locker room.  Mr. Y:  “Man, I was shocked.  I mean these two guys are both Jewish and both Democrats.  I thought they would get along with each other.”   In fact, on the campaign trail, things got so ugly that a Sheriff’s deputy had to break them apart.  I asked our informants if the fight got to the point of snapping wet towels at one another.  “No,” says Mr. Z, “Just yelling and screaming and insults.”

We suggest this animosity should be settled by an old fashioned duel.  How about standing 3 feet apart and hurling banana cream pies at one another along with the insults?  It would make for a great photo op, a paparazzi fun fest.  Hey, as they say, no harm done, nothing lost but dignity.

Note:  In the spirit of political fun, some portions of the conversations have been reconstructed out of the whole cloth of the 2 nameless informants who showed up at the Church lunch today for poor folks. Bon Apatite!

Bye Bye Breuer!

Lanny Breuer, the Assistant Attorney General and Head of the Criminal Division of the U.S. Department of Justice is leaving in March, 2013.  Last month we joined others calling for him to resign in disgrace. Great News for the American People Who Were Victims of the Greatest Bank Fraud in History, but unfortunately too late:


*** Not ONE big bankster prosecuted by Breuer, including the rulers of HSBC, Running the Money Laundering of Trillions of Drug Money!  Remember the Savings and Loan scandal?  Over 1,000 crooked banksters sent to jail.  Breuer’s record is zero!.

*** Stonewalled the so-called “Fast and Furious” gun mess with the ATF! Even Congress could not get to the bottom of this scandal.

***Let British Petroleum off the hook – the Corporation fined, but NO individual responsibility, NO corporate official goes to jail.   Thousands still sick and the Gulf still leaking in this massive government-corporate cover-up.  We will probably never know how many people died from the Gulf poisons.  BP continues to make billions in profits, and now with the other oil companies, are having the American Public pay their fines through higher oil prices.  Thanks a lot Lanny!  What a peach of a guy you turned out to be!  We will be watching to see which big corporation will be hiring you in the next couple of years.  We bet you get a job as lead consul to a big bank or oil company?

Suggestion:  Mr. Breuer, redeem yourself by giving away all your money and devoting yourself as an advocate for those millions of folks who suffered foreclosure by this bankster swindle.  The ones you let off the hook completely.

Now the question is:  Who is the next cover-up boy who will fill Breuer’s shoes?

Who will Obama appoint next?  The Pillsbury Dough Boy?

565 Agencies on Waiting List To Join L.A. Food Bank

An Incredible Number of Agencies In Los Angeles County Waiting For Food

U.S. Government Policy Has Led To Catostrophic Consequences As Food Supplies Tighten Across the Country – Inflation Could Now Destroy What Is Left of the Middle Class

How is it possible, you say?  This great, once bountiful country, now becoming mired in a continuing food crises threatening to collapse the middle class.  Let’s go back in time a few years. America had a huge food surplus – we had a Strategic Food Reserve.  This was abandoned and the government started a policy of paying people to NOT grow food.  Big farmers and corporations raked in millions DOING NOTHING.  Our wheat surplus was shipped to Russia and China, compliments of the US taxpayers.  Now we have hundreds of charities – 565 according to the L.A. Food Bank – waiting for food for their hungry wards.  This situation may be getting worse due to drought, climate change and other natural disasters.  It is also estimated that in other parts of the world something like 100 million people are starving,  Go to website for an analysis of Strategic Food Reserves and comments on the food shortages and what needs to be done.

HSBC Too Big To Fail?

Glenn Greenwald Exposes Two-Tiered U.S. Justice System

Banksters Are “Too Big To Indict” and are Protected By The Obama Administration While the Poor and Middle Class Suffer Enormous Repression.

Here’s The Number One Protector of U.S. Banksters:  Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, Exposed by Frontline’s Story on “The Untouchables”, Now Protects HSBC Criminals From Jail.  Breuer Should Resign In Disgrace.

Lanny Breuer, HSBC

The US is the world’s largest prison state, imprisoning more of its citizens than any nation on earth, both in absolute numbers and proportionally. It imprisons people for longer periods of time, more mercilessly, and for more trivial transgressions than any nation in the west. This sprawling penal state has been constructed over decades, by both political parties, and it punishes the poor and racial minorities at overwhelmingly disproportionate rates.

But not everyone is subjected to that system of penal harshness. It all changes radically when the nation’s most powerful actors are caught breaking the law. With few exceptions, they are gifted not merely with leniency, but full-scale immunity from criminal punishment. Thus have the most egregious crimes of the last decade been fully shielded from prosecution when committed by those with the greatest political and economic power: the construction of a worldwide torture regime, spying on Americans’ communications without the warrants required by criminal law by government agencies and the telecom industry, an aggressive war launched on false pretenses, and massive, systemic financial fraud in the banking and credit industry that triggered the 2008 financial crisis.
