S.F. Board of Supervisors call for Arizona boycott
San Francisco Chronicle ^ | Wednesday, May 12, 2010 | Rachel Gordon, John Coté

Posted on 05/12/2010 9:14:57 AM PDT by alexandria

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors took a symbolic jab at Arizona Tuesday for passing a controversial law last month that gives law enforcement authorities in the Grand Canyon State broad powers to check a person's immigration status.

Critics fear the law will lead to racial profiling.

San Francisco supervisors, on a 10-1 vote, approved a nonbinding resolution that calls for a boycott of Arizona-based businesses. It asks for, but does not demand, that city departments refrain from entering into new contracts or extending existing ones with companies headquartered in Arizona, unless severing those ties would result in significant costs to the city or violate other laws.

"This is really about sending a very clear message that when a state passes a law that is egregious as this law is, that people of good conscience in other parts of the country have an obligation and responsibility to speak up and not remain silent," said Supervisor David Campos, chief sponsor of the legislation.

So what is wrong with passing a law that the Federal Government already has, but refuses to enforce.

Why do we even have laws if they arent enforced?

The Presdent is responsible to see that these laws are enforced, but he encourages the law breakers.

Like that means anything to the SF Marxiqueer tyranny.

Arizona should ship it's illegals to SF, and have the last laugh.

That’s what I say, send them to California and New York.

Pussies. They should demand it and then accept whatever consequences come their way because of their actions.

Typical gutless liberals.

Great idea. Terminate contracts with Arizona companies because of this law. Then sit back and watch the lawsuits for breach of contract pour in. Idiots.

Now that they have passed this lovely and diverse symbolic resolution, can they get down to the business of doing their actual job within budget? I didn’t think so.

I've been calling travel agencies and random individuals in San Francisco and thanking them for their boycott of AZ. It's cool to do! My voice always has a smile in it and my tone is always respectful. Our conversations are cordial and often fun (though, in my heart I want to scream curses at their vile selves). Every point they make I accede to. It's fun to agree with them and then restate their arguments with slightly rightist language. Give it a try: Addresses.com

At least one brave soul vote against it. We decided to skip San Francisco on our vacation. I have been there before and, imho, it is the most overrated city.

I could easily boycott San Francisco. Haven’t been there in years, but last time I was, the city looked like a dump. I already have a dump nearby — downtown Pittsburgh.

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors took a symbolic jab at Arizona...

Considering the venue, that's not painting a pretty picture...

so it’s OK for them to break law and help those who break the law but have a problem with those who follow and endorse the law

Bush should have stopped money to san freako when he had the chance

I say BOYCOTT CALIFORNIA WINES!!!

The wineries are major importers of illegals. I’ve decided to make this boycott my crusade. Y’all are welcome to join in.

Australian wines are just as good; the French are now more conservative than the California statehouse; there are wineries in Idaho and Texas; etc.

Please help this boycott grow legs. Thanks!

The last time I was in San Francisco, which has been quite a while, it was a depressing scene of homelessness EVERYWHERE. People sleeping in parks, in doorways. Apparently, the council is blind to the squalor on its doorsteps. Who am I kidding, there’s an elitist ruling class that doesn’t give a crap about actual citizens.

Have no fear San Fran... I've boycotted your city since 2006... too bad because my favorite National League baseball team is the Giants.

I'll just see them whenever they play in Houston.

I wonder why SFers would even care. Does Phoenix have better bathhouses?

I mentioned on another thread that clowns such as SFers, the Highland Park, IL school district and other gatherings of losers think they’re inflicting pain on Arizona. I’m quite sure the folks there are more than happy to see them boycott.

The libs are binding joke upon America, it seems only their sidekick “respectable” conservative buddies take them seriously. When in fact they need a serious trial for crimes against humanity.
