Someone could trip over the cord, and forget to plug it back in for a day or two............... commie-fornia is a gun free zone, there people should be safe at night. I am sure the people and illegals would sit around the bonfire and sing kumbaya all night long.
I always thought it was the Federal Government's job to prevent interference to the free flow of trade or commerce between the States.
Any State sanctioned boycott (eg. California's) is just that and is UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
Maybe Holder could read the Constitution (he doesn't seem to read anything else) and see what really may or may not be illegal..
The Arizona utilities commissioner actually can't just turn off the juice- that's up to the power companies themselves, but he can strongly suggest to them that they look at renegotiating contracts.
What Mayo Villaraigosa will probably end up boycotting is official purchases of turquoise bolo ties.

I just saw the story on FoxNews. At first I thought screw LA, leave 'em out in the dark. Then I thought wait a minute, just because the federal government is not doing it's job in the first place and enforcing the current law, now states/cities are turning on one another. We the people are turning on we the people. Everyone has opinions, but a look to the future could be dark for many. The mayor of my city just announced no city government officials will attend any conferences/meetings in Arizona due to the new law. The aftermath has already tricked to the midwest. All because big government refuses to enforce the law.
May we never forget those in uniform who protect us night and day in lands far away. And those in all wars who paid the supreme sacrifice in defense of our country. May God Bless our Troops and First Responders.

"People in Arizona carry guns," said a Chandler police spokesman. "You better be careful about who you are picking on."
Give them an unexpected blackout for an hour to see how LA copes with their future. When those contracts expire jack their rates 10 fold or severe the lines to the peoples republic of California.
This whole story has me cracking the heck up!!!

I'd actually send a small donation to the State of Arizona to make that happen. Millions of others would do the same, I'm sure.

The federal government's role is to prevent interference, but this is not interference.
Interference would be if L.A. imposed an import tax on all goods from AZ, or a travel tax for anyone visiting.
Free market means free market. Forcing an entity (government, corporate, or individual) to purchase from another is anathema to liberty.
OTOH, if the state of Arizona should forbid or discourage (i.e. tax or restrict) private companies from selling to certain customers, the fed has a roll to intervene. Now if the power companies do it on their own, all is Kosher in my mind (except for the flying pigs part).

23,000 drug related murders in Mexico in the last 2.5 years and 300 decapitations.
Gee...I wonder why Arizona would want to stop that from spilling over into Arizona?
