Arizona Corporation Commissioner Gary Pierce
sent a letter to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa basically telling him to go stuff it when it comes to their so called "boycott" of Arizona over its immigration law SB1070.
L.A. receives 25% of its power from Arizona and Pierce dared Villaraigosa to follow through on their little boycott.
In a letter to Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Arizona Corporation Commissioner Gary Pierce said a boycott war is bad for both sides, and said he would "be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements" to end the electricity flowing to Los Angeles.
"I am confident that Arizona's utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands," Mr. Pierce said. "If, however, you find that the City Council lacks the strength of its convictions to turn off the lights in Los Angeles and boycott Arizona power, please reconsider the wisdom of attempting to harm Arizona's economy."
Los Angeles's city council voted overwhelmingly last week to adopt a boycott of Arizona businesses — at least in instances where the boycott wouldn't impose a significant economic cost to the city.
Gary Pierce is a freakin' hero. As for L.A. and it's City Council... apparently they haven't picked up a book, because boycott means that you don't use anything from that source you are boycotting.
Apparently the only thing coming out of L.A. is hot air, illegal aliens, lack of law enforcement and a severe lack of spine or honesty. Oh and some serious debt.
Send Gary an email telling him he's a badass!
