Is there any other city in America more worthy of a good flipping off of than Los Angeles, CA? The state of Arizona gives me hope that the United States still has some fight in her.
In case you have been living under a rock, or living in a hole, or possibly have been held in some undisclosed torture room, Arizona passed a law that basically told state and local law enforcement to that it’s okay to check on someone’s immigration status. In response, the douche bags in L.A. decided to boycott stuff from Arizona.
Douche bags are notoriously short sighted, and not overly-intelligent. The Los Angeles city council overlooked the fact that their city gets 25% of their electricity from Arizona. Arizona Corporation Commissioner Gary Pierce sent L.A.’s mayor a letter that was probably accompanied by a large photo of his middle finger. The money shot of the letter is this:
If an economic boycott is truly what you desire, I will be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements so Los Angeles no longer receives any power from Arizona-based generation.
I’m seriously considering moving my underground bunker to Arizona. Anybody know how transport large, subterranean, cement structures?
[UPDATE] From Hot Air, L.A. has responded to Pierce’s letter. Apparently the city of Los Angeles lacks the courage their convictions. Not that anyone is surprised by that.
