Los Angeles threatens to boycott Arizona electricity
This is pure nutroot, unabashed liberal, idiocy run amok here. The Los Angeles City Council debated whether to boycott Arizona. Councilman Ed Reyes summed it up best for the enlightened council:
So, the Los Angeles City Council, who does not live in Arizona, decided they needed to take a stand and have their voice heard. Most of the world heard it, but thought it was petty politics. However, the people of Arizona heard it and thought it was bad for business. So they looked at what that might impact.
The primary thing Los Angeles imports from Arizona is power.
52% of Los Angeles’s power comes from outside of California by means of coal powered generators. ( That’s another story entirely. )
The story today is how a utilities person in Arizona is threatening to cut off Los Angeles’ power if they push the boycott. But it seems to me that Los Angeles has already made that decision for them. Foxnews is running a poll to see if people think it’s right for Arizona to cut off Los Angeles or whether that’s petty politics. At the time of this writing, with over 100,000 responses, 93% think Arizona should do it.
I do too.
A boycott’s a boycott. You can’t just pick and choose what products you buy from someone you find morally incapable of dealing with. It’s on, or it’s not.
You gotta ask yourself LA if you feel lucky. Well, do ya? Go ahead punks, make our day!

I also wonder how many of those council members even read the Arizona law. My bet, zero.
