"Chinese Daily USA" is a Publication Owned by Arcadia City Councilmember Sho Tay - Check Out the Huge Spread for the Big GemCoin Bash Last May


It has become the opinion of some close observers of the GemCoin financial scandal in Arcadia that much of this was originally conducted in order to create a significant amount of investment capital for additional LULU (Locally Unwanted Land Use) projects. In particular more of the kinds of predatory and bizarrely ostentatious real estate development that has sadly become so prevalent there.

It certainly helps to explain the involvement of some of the big pro-McDevelopment government officials at the event we are discussing today, most famously the starring role Arcadia Councilmember John Wuo was daft enough to take. The gray jacket and brown pantsed gentleman who later on went on to proclaim in the Arcadia Weekly, and in a most Sergeant Shultz way, that he knew absolutely nothing about GemCoins. This despite the vast amounts of photographic evidence to the contrary found on the Internet.


Councilmember Wuo also famously requested that the use of his image in GemCoin related efforts be removed, and in all instances. Which makes the continued colorful Internet photographic and news article documentation of his smiling presence at this big GemCoin presser event last May as found in Sho Tay's "Chinese Daily USA" all the more puzzling. You'd think Mr. Tay would want to help out his colleague GemCoin Johnny a little bit and wipe all of that evidence off the web.

However, Sho Tay has not. Which you can quite easily see by clicking here. Or looking at the photos we cut and pasted to this post last night.


So up until now Arcadia City Councilmember Sho Tay's connection to the alleged GemCoin ponzi scheme controversy has not been quite as evident. Despite his staunch and unpopular opposition to any kind of resident control over predatory development there (he is now subject to a recall campaign for this lapse), Sho Tay has not been directly linked to any of the things his far less cautious Arcadia City Council colleague recklessly lent his image and support to a few months back.

But judging by the gaudy coverage of this particular GemCoin event in his Mandarin language newspaper Chinese Daily USA, Sho Tay doesn't have a problem with it, either. And obviously, we are talking about crass consumerism on bucket loads steroids here. Conducted for the benefit of those who would actually want to live in gigantic houses equipped with acres more plumbing than taste.

And what exactly are the Freudian implications of living in a home with 6 bathrooms, anyway?


I received the following e-mail recently from a resident of Arcadia that sheds some light on the contents of this meretricious GemCoin spread in Sho Tay's tawdry tabloid. Fluent in Mandarin (it is her first language), this heroic preservationist resident also provided me with a translation of the article that accompanies the tacky photographic nonsense we've included above.

Here is her note to The Tattler community.



Here is a portion of the Chinese Daily USA article in the original Mandarin:


Here is the translation.


That is it for today. We will have much more in around 48 to 72 hours. Exciting and fresh Arcadia revelations will soon be heading your way.

  5. I think the Chinese stock market collapse may solve the McMansion problem for us. I spoke to a (caucasian) realtor in Arcadia this week: he said there are a dozen big homes in North Arcadia that are "for sale" but not-yet-on-the-market officially. There is such a glut of high-priced offerings on the market already.

  6. Here is what gets me. Unsophisticated immigrants from a communist country, who continue to follow communist political practices in America, want to build gavone mega-mansions worth millions of whatever and swan around in expensive clothing, cars and jewelry.

  9. Maybe there are too many communists secretly invading the USA, go to Communist China and you will see how they treat foreigners and investors the local and state government are brutal towards them they take their money and terrorize them until they are in prison, dead or forced out of the country leaving all they brought behind.

    1. Kind of the opposite here. In the US when foreigners and investors show up the local and state governments beat up the locals so that the recent arrivals get to build everything they want no matter what the consequences to everyone else. At the Arcadia Association of Realtors that is called property rights.

  10. It's kind og like drugs in this country. It wouldn't be around if the government wasn't making something. The same goes with major parts of L.A. I had a reason to be in the west valley. When I got home, having taken the scenic drive, I realized that I had been around the world. Started out in the west valley which is the valley of jews over the canyon to BH which seems to be Iranian Mecca. On down the road to pass through predominantly Asian areas that one were so different. We start in Koreatown, then meander to downtown L.A., through parts of East L.A., through Alhambra, Rosemead, Temple City, Arcadia and home to Sierra Madre. What an eye opener for someone born and raised in L.A. There's money in all of this for some level of government. I was bombarded by signs in languages of which I had no clue as well as being surrounded by it on the streets. It really is all about the money. Money needed to pay inflated government salaries, build trains to nowhere, give away in aid by the millions. No assimilation, no value of what were once our way of life. I know, I'm a racist and a bigot. We have lost our national identity. Is it wrong to cherish what was for what we are faced with now? I for one, don't think so. In order to vote her, you once had to have knowledge of the language. No we print everything in several languages, at taxpayer money, for those in power to get a vote. I am venting, I know. But maybe I can find some solace in missing what once was.

    1. You've got to watch Blade Runner, set in the future Los Angeles when everyone is speaking a language that is made from English, Chinese and Spanish. Very interesting prediction.
      I think at the end of the day America always wins out. Once people taste freedom, they don't want to give it up or go back to being less free. Take heart - while Switzerland is probably better than we are at everything, our framework of government is among the best in the world.

  11. Off subject, but there is a special City Council Meeting tonight at 6:00 in the council chambers to discuss adding wireless to the UUT. Rumor has it that the meeting will only last 10-15 minutes because they don't expect any public to show up, so if you want to be there, be on time.

  18. Anybody watching the special City Council meeting? It looks like the MWD water connection will have to be shut down for 8 hours (or more) because of a pipe failure. It was work down two years ago, and the contractor was paid $500,000 by either the city or MWD. Bruce is tap-dancing. Council is asking questions and looks exasperated.

    Does that mean the city will be without water for a day? Or night?
