Wonder what you would find if you frisked the city of Los Angeles’ power supply if they decide to boycott Arizona?

Answer: Some of it might go missing.

NBC Los Angeles reports:

An Arizona utility commissioner said he’s willing to pull the plug on Los Angeles if the city goes through with a boycott of his state.

In a letter to the city of LA, a member of Arizona’s power commission said he would ask Arizona utility companies to cut off the power supply to Los Angeles. LA gets about 25 percent of its power from Arizona.

[…]

The commissioner’s power grid play is in response to the city’s approval of a resolution directing city staff to consider which contracts with Arizona can be terminated.

Los Angeles decided to push and Arizona pushed back harder. If I were Arizona, I would tell Los Angeles to bring it on!

Wonder what you would find if you frisked Eugene Robinson’s – from The Washington Post – latest op-ed column?

Answer: He wonders why the Tea Party activists aren’t protesting Arizona’s new immigration law.

Really Mr. Robinson???… You’re throwing out the race-card? Figures…

Activists for Latino and immigrant rights — and supporters of sane governance — held weekend rallies denouncing the new law and vowing to do everything they can to overturn it. But where was the Tea Party crowd? Isn’t the whole premise of the Tea Party movement that overreaching government poses a grave threat to individual freedom? It seems to me that a law allowing individuals to be detained and interrogated on a whim — and requiring legal residents to carry identification documents, as in a police state — would send the Tea Partyers into apoplexy. Or is there some kind of exception if the people whose freedoms are being taken away happen to have brown skin and might speak Spanish?

Personally, I think Mr. Eugene Robinson should have stayed home today and kept his phalanges off his (assuming) ritzy Apple MacBook, because it would have saved him the humiliation of writing this op-ed column.

First of all, this Arizona immigration law does not allow law enforcement officers to detain and interrogate people solely “on a whim.” I give Eugene Robinson major props here for his excellent exaggerations. Click here to read the bill.

Second, the Tea Party movement is about limiting government to its responsibilities. In this case, the government is not overreaching here, because the federal government is SUPPOSE to protect our borders and enforce immigration laws. Unfortunately, both Republicans and Democrats have not grown a spine on this issue and continue to fail at maintaining the integrity of our borders and preserving the concept of U.S. citizenship. Therefore Arizona has been forced to man-up and take care of its citizens.

Lastly, there’s nothing wrong with legal American citizens wanting their borders protected so that state unemployment rates decrease, health-care costs decrease, and their property values increase. Yup… That must be racist. 🙄 <– That’s sarcasm if you couldn’t tell.

In the end, Eugene Robinson proves once again that it is difficult for those on the far-left to understand what is and is not a proper role of our government.
