If Los Angeles wants to boycott Arizona, it had better get used to reading by candlelight.
That's the message from a member of Arizona's top government utilities agency, who threw down the gauntlet Tuesday in a letter to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa by threatening to cut off the city's power supply as retribution.
Gary Pierce, a commissioner on the Arizona Corporation Commission, wrote the letter in response to the Los Angeles City Council's decision last week to boycott the Grand Canyon State -- in protest of its immigration law -- by suspending official travel there and ending future contracts with state businesses.

Love it! Up the price and call it ‘transportation cost increases’.
Hah!!! Would love to see them do that!
Wow, that sounds like a fun idea! ;-)
Pass the Pop Corn.
Do not cut em off just raise their rates to compensate for the damage.
I want this Gary Pierce to run for President...along with that Alabama Ag Commisioner candidate Dale Peterson
Two men with backbone...and leadership
AZ should shut the power going to LA. Let see the Angelinos and Illegals boycott that.....
Do it!!!! Do you think any communists liberal in LA cares a crap for you in AZ. Civil war is on the horizon.
I love this.
Pay back is a medevac lol.
WTG!! AZ rocks!
This will only further the battle between states rights vs. federal intrusion.
GO STATE'S RIGHTS!
What did they think the result of their boycott would be?
boicoteo en la obscuridad
Paybacks a bitch!....
Wonder how all the illegals in LA would respond to a big power outage there.....(sorry can’t stop laughing)...
Better yet,have the one who stirred all of this up in the first place-Gov Jan Brewer-to run for prez.
Go Gary Pierce, go man, go!! Do it, please!!!
Big mouth LA liberals deserve what they get. Stupid people didn’t read the AZ law but, as all liberals do, jumped on the AZ people for trying to protect themselves. I guess if some in LA decided to riot again and burn their city to the ground, the liberals idiots would feel sorry for the rioters or would they just let them do it. I hope they wouldn’t allow that to happen for one reason - the liberal idiots would have to move to some other city and contaminate the country.
This is some funny stuff.
And then boycott everything from Mexico, since that corrupt sh*thole is one of the major factors in the decline and lawlessness in Arizona and America.
I also think that a lot of LA’s water runs through AZ!
Wonder how all the illegals in LA would respond to a big power outage there.....
They would sit in the dark.....
It’s not payback. We are just helping them along with their boycott.
“a quarter of Los Angeles’ electricity comes from Arizona power plants, Pierce threatened to pull the plug if the City Council does not reconsider. “
oh my gosh, I love it!
What goes around comes around.
Make me feel so warm in fuzzy inside.
Just help the folks in LA be true to their word.
..of course, as he said, who would the Obama administration come after....(we all know)
But DO IT!----Call their bluff!
No, they would riot. LA would get a nice dose of what AZ has been living with.
In 1980 the Canadian federal government imposed the National Energy Program, which involved heavy regulation, partial nationalization and price fixing that almost killed the oil industry in the province of Alberta (Canada’s version of Texas, both economically and politically). Ralph Klein, the Mayor of Calgary (and subsequently Provincial Premier), made the statment: “Let the Eastern bastards freeze in the dark”, in reference to the primarily eastern based ruling party which imposed the new regulations, in the face of the east’s dependence on western oil.
I’d love to hear a similar statement from the Governor of Arizona to the state of California!
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Actually...boycotts should be used in response to boycotts. This will bring the boil to a head much quicker.....lance the boil....let the puss squirk!
Mayor's response? "Well, we have a budget crisis, in case you haven't noticed..."
Silly me...they've been saying it's about safety, not revenue...
Don't matter. They ain't got no electricity, anyway.
lol now that funny. Sad how its gotten to all of this. Amongst own states. Wow.
Reminds me of the saying, “Tracers work both ways.”
Shut off their agua, AZ!
This should give the turkeys in Los Angeles something to think about. LOL!
So when does the shooting start?
Arizona should withhold any cooperation with California.
California is acting as a criminal accomplice, aiding and abetting the infiltration of our nation.
The einsatzgruppen we saw deployed at Ruby Ridge and Waco would immediately descend on Arizona, however. Whether they would have carte blanche for their terror operations this time is a question.
Need to have a “temporary shutdown for maintenance”. One hour per day should suffice to start!!
I’M LOVIN IT!!!Finally someone with guts!!!
