Best Pain in the Ass to Local Politicians Phoenix 2011 - Carlos Galindo

Does anyone like Carlos Galindo? Well, he is happily married. And the sometimes abrasive talk-radio host can boast a loyal listenership for his various radio shows for different outlets. But he doesn't play well with the other immigrant activists in town. And he likes to pick verbal fights with those on the right and the left, even though he often refers to himself as an "unapologetic liberal."All the same, Galindo is like a portly, Latino version of Batman. When something's going down in the community, the dude is there. He might be protesting a lefty like Democratic state Senator Kyrsten Sinema, dogging racist legislators like wingnut state Senator Lori Klein, or harassing police officers going to a benefit for killer cop Richard Chrisman over at the Phoenix Law Enforcement Association's offices. We've seen Galindo confront racists, cops, tea baggers, other members of the news media, and prejudiced state Senate President Russell Pearce, who once shoved him after Galindo got his goat. Perfect, he ain't. But sometimes you need a streetfighter like Galindo to take on the bullies and cowards who pollute our public life. And if he pisses off folks as a consequence, for Galindo, that's the price of doing business.

He couldn't handle the pain I gave him on his FB page and deleted me, even after he said he wanted to interview me. He is a coward.

WTF? This is the funniest shit, I've read in a long time. And I love the way was described: Portly Batman. HA HA HA.

In case you guys haven't seen it, check out The Lou Show where Lou does a "Fake Interview with Carlos Galindo" Finally, someone gives Galindo a taste of his own medicine.

Lou, you just did all of the activist and community advocates a huge favor. Thanks for doing it!

On Facebook type in "The Lou Show" to hear it. I think it's the second part of the show marked by a blue time line on the bottom to cut directly to it.

Again, THANK LOU!

I can't believe the new times would give this idiot the time of day. He can't effect any change for the better because NO ONE respects him except for people who don't know any better. He thinks if he attacks real leaders he will get famous. He has never had an original idea to help make real change. He has never created forums or workshops to help the community because he doesn't like to work at anything. He is a lazy jerk who wants people to worship him. He is so desperate for people to worship him he PAYS to be on a radio show. That is because NO ONE in professional radio would HIRE him. ANYONE can pay to be on the radio but real leaders become leaders from years of serving the community from dedicated volunteering and service to the community. Something that Carlos would never do. He wouldn't work to help anyone. He wouldn't volunteer for anything worthwhile or he would have been involved in helping all the volunteers to document abuses by Joe Arpaio, Thomas, Russell Pearce...etc,...etc....etc. Instead what is he doing?? Going after the Mexican Consulate?? Are you kidding me?? Take it from someone who has seen the likes of real leaders like Roberto, Danny, Lydia, Alfredo, Randy and on and on. He can't hold a candle to people who have spent their whole life serving the community. The community should be protesting him for trashing the names of the real leaders in Arizona.

I love the fact that I can do a google search and type in "Pain in the Ass" and this article comes up. Galindo, your Bull Shit Toro is over, your new nickname is Pain in the Ass. Perhaps next year it will be Asshole.

I have hoped that Carlos would grow up or at least start coming up with solutions but still no go. He is just a Guy who pays to be on the radio to try to be famous. He is absolutely desperate to be famous. He is a johnny come lately and only became involved when he paid for his radio show. The problem with Galindo is he is one of those guys who thinks if you tear down real leaders he will become respected for name dropping. The sick part of him is that he tries to tear down people who are the real deal. People who have volunteered their whole life without any thought of how it benefits them. People with real convictions and sincere love for the community. I would love to see Galindo come up with ONE solution. He only knows how to tear down, not build anything.

OMG, Carlos Galindo? Yeah he's a pain in the ass, alright. But I think the New Times gives him too much credit. He's just a pain in in the ass, period. The only thing I give him credit for is for not playing nice with other activists. I understand that other activists have at one point tried to allow him into their circles but he betrays everyone by going on the attack and recording it and then playing it all over the airwaves. I see him and turn the other direction. He's nothing but a divider who is self-promoting all the time. I agree with the poster below, he's a loser, loser, loser. And who do I send people to that have been taken by Carlos Galindo's legal mis-represnetation? I know of two young men who had child support issues, one paid $800 and the other is going on to $1000 (as they are charged in increments of $200)

PS. that Spanish post sounded funny, though I can't speak it, I read it and could understand only the bad words. Sounded funny. Good Job, Vaquero Amigo!

Este pendejo esta enfermo. Yo no so como fregado su esposa no tiene verguenza de ver que su esposo se comporta de esa manera y no lo lleva al doctor para que le recete un tipo de medicamento. Este guey no vale la pena escucharlo en las ondas radiales. Que lastima que el Sr. Marquez de Radio Fiesta esta perdiendo negocio por tener a ese baboso ahi. Que lastima de ver a lo que se rebajo esta etacion de radio por un dollar.

Carlos, un dia cuando estes ladrando como perro rabioso, te va a dar un ataque de corazon por lo panson y odioso que eres.. ese dia me tomare una cerveza para celebrar. Baboso.

He prefers to have a computerized voice as a co-host rather than have his wife in the studio comment... that only time he lets his wife speak is to promote the sham business he has. He's a fake lawyer. I also know of someone who paid $800 down and on the date of his court hearing, his "Lawyer, Carlos Galindo never showed up!" I felt so bad for him, I took him to the state bar to file a complaint only to find that several people already had too.

I encourage others to file state bar complaints against him if you know of people who have been victimized by this unscrupulous man. I hope he gets what he deserves.

NO ONE LIKES THIS SELF-WORSHIPER. His show is 80% reading of emails or text messages of how much they love him.. his "LOVE MAIL".. he also only takes calls from people that tell him they love him.

I once heard a caller telling criticizing him and he yelled and cut off the caller until he cut the caller off.. he clearly demonstrated that he had control of the microphone.

LOSER.. LOSER.. LOSER.. Oh, by the way.. the state bar has launched an investigation into the way he "practices law".. He certainly charges lawyers fees.. $200 is just to get your foot in the door, but the hidden charges mount..

I could go on an on about this divider of the community. But you get the picture.

Galindo is a wanna-be Lawyer.
Galindo is a wanna-be Lawyer.

If anyone has any complaints to about Galindo's sham illegal "Legal" practice, please report it to the AZ Bar. Galindo is under investigation and more people need to file their complaints. (someone please pass this info to the Spanish-speakers because those are the biggest victims)

Don't let Angel Garcia try to cast any doubts. This is entirely, and completely, about Carlos Galindo, and nothing that The Lou Show says or does will add or take away from the damage Galindo has done in the community. Garcia has learned well from his mentor. The community can already can see, without any help from The Lou Show, how divisive, not unifying, Carlos can be. And only Carlos can change things for the better, for the sake of the community.

Nice spin, Angel. But it won't work. Your boss, Carlos Galindo, is the issue. Carlos! Not you. Not I. Carlos vs. The Community. But, of course, as you are in his employ, you will refuse to see that. (To be more effective, I suggest you ghost write for someone else, so you don't appear "compromised".)

Actually, Just a volunteer, anyone who uses words like "no one" "never" (actually you use never alot) is suspect. I see you like calling names too, another sign of a weak argument. It looks like you're making up your own facts too. Carlos has been instrumental in documenting abuses by Arpaio and MCSO and filming the lying Russell Pearce just to mention a few. His protest at the Mexican consulate is certainly a valid protest and the reasons for him being there have everything to do with a corrupt Mexican CON-sulate that preys on it's own people. Carlos is Mexican you know, and an immigrant, a naturalized citizen so he has an interest in the well being of the immigrant community. Carlos is a leader in his own right and you are just an anonymous critic. Come out into the light like Carlos does why don't ya?

@ Phouc Yu.....Toro is alive and well. He is respected and supported and puts himself out there. Yu, on the other hand, have chosen an anonymous name to hide behind and criticize people who are making the difference in the hateful landscapt that is Arizona.

@ James, you don't really know Mr. Galindo very well if you don't know about his community involvement. His radio show is just the tip of the iceburg when it comes to his activism. Just curious, which of the real leaders do you think he's torn down? We should really take a closer look at whoever it is because, believe me, Carlos does his homework.

I love the way Carlos holds EVERYONE accountable. So what if you have years of community activism, that doesn't make you a saint. In fact, it can make you stale, unimaginative and even corrupt. Carlos and his camera have recorded many, many truths we would never have known about. He has the intestinal fortitude to go after our lying politicians and show their true colors. For that I am grateful! Carlos is a force that shows up everywhere which is more than I can say for some activists. For instance, did you know a well known latino activist has ties to the Tea Party? Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

@Vaquero  no esta pendejo es una persona amante al dinero !!!! y sabe como vender---usa su radio y su "activismo" para jalar borregos a su oficina y masticaarlos despues...http://www.azcourts.gov/cld/LegalDocumentPreparers.aspx. deberias de hablar o ver documentos ahhi donde esta por escrito todo el dinero que le a robado a la gente que pide sus servicios legales....no es Baboso...es un Ratero

Te haces pendejo
Te haces pendejo

Nombre carnal, la esposa esta tamabien igual de estupida. Con razon hacen buena pareja. Ojala y un dia alguien le de una buena calentada al cabron que bien se lo merece y tambien esa vieja cara torcida de su esposa.

En ves de estarse haciendo pendejo en la radio porque no se pone a trabajar y recauda fondos para ayudar a "Su Gente"... que baboso. Es bueno para la critica, pero no ofrece soluciones. Mas vale que se vaya aplacando porque algun dia alguien le va a regresar el favor y sacarle todos sus trapitos al aire. Parece que ya esta circulando la historial de este pendejo.. no es tan santito como se dice ser. Este estupido tiene un antecedente peor que el de Francisco Mendoza. Lo que es diferente aqui es que Francisco nunca fue convicto de esto, y este baboso si fue convicto de crimines MUY SERIOS de drogas y tambien otros de mala conducta y su hija esta envolucrada. Le limpia su mierda con decir que pidio a la corte que se lo borraran.. YA VES PENDEJO, QUE NO SE BORRA??

Por ahi te miro, pendejo, que ya sabes quien soy. Y nomas falta que le siguas haciendole pendejo en el aire.

Carlos Galindo es un enfermo - Sufre de importancia ajena. Toda su rabia hacia otros es porque son mas importantes que el. Carlos es un estupido y mas los que lo siguen como abejas siegas. baaaa baaaa !! bola de payasos en frente de la oficina del consulado - aver hasta cuando no se enfadan de estar ahi, parece que hay un circo ahi.

I don't know where you get your information Marianna, but Carlos is not an attorney. He will tell you that straight up. You must be very confused about Legalman, LLC, they are document preparers not attorneys. In fact, I submit that you are a liar with your vague statement about knowing other people who have filed complaints at the bar. Really?? Who?? The bar doesn't accept complaints about non lawyers!

You obviously don't know Mrs. Galindo either, lol, she doesn't let anyone control her. She is a confident, bold woman who knows how to stand on her own two feet.

I listen to Galindo's show all the time and it is filled with current events and political analysis not reading of emails or text messages. You are correct when you say he's cut callers off, I've heard him do that when they spew their extreme right wing rhetoric so what's your point? He's hardly the first host to cut off a caller when inappropriate material is being presented.

I'd like to see your link or more information on the state bar launching an investigation against him. He's not an attorney so you are completely off base on that one. In fact, you might want to consider your slander factor.

@loushow  Carlos is the problem he always gets away on bashing others....he should be held accountable....when he presented himself before the Legal Document Preaprer Program he claimed that he was putting himself accountable for all the damage he had ....but like always he was just doing the talking the spitting of saliva

@Gpscentral  I am blessed of not knowing personally Galindo...but sadly i have met many of clients whom he has steal....the radio is just a marketing tool for his legal document prepare office where like a wolf he can get sheep to eat

@Gpscentral has he hold himself accountable ??????  It was shameful to read all the complains he has on file http://www.azcourts.gov/cld/LegalDocumentPreparers.aspx

It was shameful that he uses to names to conduct his busines Legal Man and Agencia Hispana whose certificate was removed on 2013.....It is shameful tu hear from his mouth that he was going to hold himself accountalbe when the big sign of Legal Man is still standing when he was banned on owning a legal document prepare......I is shameful to read court documents of his wife Carmen who she paid off 6000.00 to her client to close her complaint in arbitration.....shame Carlos stop recording and start writting in order to complete all youre work that you owe to youre clients

@Te haces pendejo  ni uno de los dos se hacen pendejos....se dedican a robarle a la gente  los dos tienen quejas ante las cortes en Arizona...roban en serio !!!!!!

@Gpscentral

the bar wont accept complaints for none attorneys but it will redirect you to the Supreme Court of Arizona Legal document preparer...(602) 452-3378

Carlos hides behind Legalman, LLC and Agencia Hispana whose certificate was just remove on May 20, 2013 because Carlos had to many sustain complains....but sadly he was given a second opportunity to work by "himself" he is not allowed to have no help---he cannot be a supervisor...so have thus complaints comming he will eventually be remove from our community if he doesnt stop his dishonest behavior
