This is one of those socio-economic gaps, isn't it?

See, I'm about to head to my gym, where after an hour of exercise I will relax in a hot spa followed by a dip in a chilled pool until my core temp goes down below 98. This is all indoors, air conditioned. And my multi-club plan only comes to $40 a month, much cheaper than maintaining a pool of my own outdoors.

And because people in this area are actually kind of prudish they have a hard time with the locker room and being naked, so very few people actually use the pool. Unlike your public pools which are teeming with your unwashed masses.

They have huge budget cuts, won't increase taxes because SoCal is right wing, but want all the services that a tax paying society would provide

The tax paying society are not the ones using the public pools.

There are other ways to keep cool.

LA is right wing? LA? That may have been true a few decades ago, and may still be true in some of the suburbs, but that wasn't even true when I left the state in 1996. Looking at the last party affiliation breakdown I could find (2003) it was about 51% Dem and 26% Rep and the rest declined to state with a smattering of third parties.

Hardly a right wing enclave.


The wealthier burbs who send in the most tax dollars are almost all conservative


The last presidential election showed Obama winning the county with 72% of the vote, and the City of LA has more than half the population of the total county. What enclave of conservatives exist in that environment that can politically withstand a demand for higher taxes?

On the state level, the Dems outnumber the Reps by 2-1 and the current Gov is Jerry Brown-D.

Stupid women with big tits?

Sounds like a great 20 minutes followed by 60 years of misery.

noblewolf: So the pools will be open from 3pm to 7pm weekdays and 1pm to 5pm on weekends until labor day. I see that they are scheduling the pool hours around school. That is nice, but what about locals who don't go to school, or are they just not important.


Basically they're just doing their best to keep the pools open past the date they were scheduled and budgeted to close, despite having absolutely no money to do so. There's only so much they can do here.

I thought it never got cold enough in LA to warrant closing the pools. So, I'm a bit surprised to hear they ever close them.

In other news, isn't there like this great big ocean right there? Why can't people swim there?

Citizens of LA decide they want community services they don't want to pay for and the city cannot afford.

Late season swimming is available in Canada, too.
