Posted on 06/28/2010 7:48:59 PM PDT by NoLibZone
Boycotting Arizona is harder than it sounds.
Though the passage of the state's immigration law was met in late April with immediate threats to cut ties with Arizona in protest, a number of cities have either scaled back or created exemptions to their own boycotts.
The resolutions also have demanded a mountain of work by officials at the city level tasked with reviewing hundreds of internal contracts for any trace of Arizona to see whether it's prudent to cut ties. As the review process gets underway, the result may be a patchwork of targeted boycotts rather a blanket ban on all things Arizona.
The Los Angeles City Council was the latest to amend its boycott last Wednesday, when lawmakers voted to make an exemption so that an Arizona-based company that operates enforcement cameras at Los Angeles intersections can continue to do business there.

Bunch of morons. Like the valley girl who is boycotting Arizona Tea (made in New York)
The boycotts are a result of the liberal child-like thought process.
The liberals wanted so much to make a political statement. But they failed to think through any consequences of their actions. Now that they see there are real world consequences to these boycotts, they want to amend the boycotts so as to cause as few problems as possible. But they also want to keep the boycotts officially in place, so that they are still making their political statement.
These liberal cities feel a strong need to prove to other liberals and radicals that they have the politically correct opinion of the Arizona law.
Because we have so many morons like that is why we have the mess we are in, politically and morally. Too stupid to know who makes what, where state/country boundaries are and on and on.
It calls attention to their astounding ignorance....
Peggy West, advocate for Arizona Boycott, does not know Arizona is a border state. What party is she from?
Leftist culls can’t even throw a competent tantrum.
“...and the peasants rejoice!”
Ha-hah. Stupid effing liberal morons. Geez.
Yep. That’s the hallmark of liberalism; they never, ever, consider the law of unintended consequences.
If there is a constant theme to liberal thinking, it is precisely a failure to understand that actions have consequences.
And Milwaukee’s own Peggy West who didn’t know Arizona shares a border with Mexico.
I wish Arizona would boycott LA, and turn off the power switch
Nah, just up their rates by 300%, and demand payment in advance. >Bo)
Did you hear that LA had to ‘modify’ it’s boycott of Arizona? The company that handles the red light cameras in LA is from Arizona - they couldn’t do without the revenue, so they still do business with them :)
Liberals never think through the consequences of their actions and if they go awry, the blame someone else. The liberal mind is unable to accept blame.
Unfortunately, due to long-term contracts already in place, Arizona can't do that even if they wanted to.
As a alternative, to avoid any charges of hypocrisy, LA should stop using Arizona power for the duration of their boycott.
I'll leave it up to them to decide if they'd rather have their power cut off for six hours per day or if they'd prefer to receive 90 volts all day long. :=)
so they only boycott things they don't really need...
that's a real moral paragon of virtue that is
I think LA better look northward to Sacramento where their own home grown incompetent state reps cannot control the budget mess facing Ca. They just may be begging Az. for help instead in the near future.
Their hands are tied, but many circumstances are beyond their control.
This is why it is so important for us to ensure that EVERY candidate for political office is smarter than belly button lint. These elected morons live off the public dime and haven’t got the brains that God gave a goat, much less enough sense to participate in running a government.
Frankly, I’m sick of all of them . . . . . . . . . or could you tell?
The one thing that SHOULD be boycotted everywhere they make an exception for. [facepalm] "If you're helping us grind the average Joe-with-a-job under our boots, you're OK. Exemption for you!"
This law is so foul that even a product NAMED after Arizona should suffer. < /liberal mode>
