Arizona Official Threatens to Cut Off Los Angeles Power as Payback for Boycott
FoxNews.com ^ | 5/19/2010

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.

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.

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.

Civil war is on the horizon.

And it looks like Arizona is going to goad the feds into throwing the first punch.

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!

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!

Seattle's Mayor made a lot of noise about the so-called boycott. It was pointed out that Seattle uses red-light cameras manufactured in Arzona...would the city stop buying them, stop using them, etc...?

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.

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.

AZ, be proactive and cut them off now. Don’t turn the electricity back on until LA enacts a similar law.
