Governator cries he wants to trim waste, but what's up with his appointment of Carole Migden to Integrated Waste Management Board @ $132,000/yr?

The California Integrated Waste Management Board (IWMB) is a place for unemployable politicians. This Board is redundant, as most functions are duplicated by the California Environmental Protection Agency. It's important for the Governator to keep the IWMB so he can keep his favorites on the state payroll.
The Governator's former Director of Scheduling, Margo Reid Brown, got this free paycheck when the Governator appointed her to the IWMB three years ago. Presently, Margo Brown heads the IWMB!
The steroids, the groping-while-still-married: it's a pattern of breaking the rules. "Do as I say and not as I do."

will Jorge Gomez ever clean his desks? Spending time on post-it notes doesn't make him ready for a DLC IV promotion

You should see all the crap that he has on his desks. Gomez is in a state of forever payback, meaning that if a subordinate hits him in the ass with some screw-up of his, then he will spend the rest of his time poring thru your stuf until he finds a mistake. Hence, the peppering of post-it notes on certain employee case files in Santa Ana.
A week ago, hearing officer Jackson overbooked his flight and had too many hearings in the morning, so he asked the new hearing officer DumbBar to hold one of Jackson's hearings. DumbBar said no problem. Not only did DumbBar not hold the hearing, but he lied to Jackson about the parties not being served so he couldn't hold the hearing. The Defendant was a catering company who was already delayed once already, so they were really pissed off. Jackson goes to DumbBar, who tells him that Lee (the clerk) has the file, but she says that Jorge has it. Jorge Gomez, in his supervisory half-lie/other-half-bullshit speak, tells Jackson that DumbBar couldn't hold the hearing and refused to tell Jackson why. The only thing Gomez told him was that there was a very good reason not to hold the hearing. DumbBar is a spittin' image of Vicky Tamoush! Jorge hired exactly who he wanted: an ass-kissing moron.
Total bullshit. Why was this reason so secretive? What was so good to delay justice? Were these very good reasons in the 900 Notes? Was DumbBar's, Lee's, and Gomez's actions covered in the 900 Notes? Gomez is excellent in jerking off those he doesn't respect, like his staff. Gomez also thinks he's great at sucking up to his bosses, but his bosses know how much of a moron he is, which is one of the very many reasons why the blogger cannot wait to have him deposed and under oath.

Will the DLSE bureaucrat who orgainzed the recent Los Angeles Wage Claim training please resign?

The people from Bakersfield and San Bernadino didn't know what they were talking about. The lawyer from San Diego should have cut off the one person who kept babbling about themself. Not enough microphones and the ones they had didn't work. Completely useless, and still no policy and procedures manual for DLSE staff assigned to Wage Claim Adjudication, which will be a sticking point with the SPB in 2009.
Blogger's termination settlement conference will be January 6th in Los Angeles. Here's out it will go down: SPB's job is to protect the DLSE, so I'll be either bullied or given some crappy settlement offer, and the entire time will be wasted. It will proceed to a hearing, and once the SPB gives me their fatal bullet, then it will proceed to Superior Court. No one gets a fair shake at SPB, as their only job is to cover the asses of DIRt.
