Despite threat, Az official powerless to shut off LA's juice

If Los Angeles wants to boycott Arizona over its new immigration law, they'd better get ready to do so in the dark, one official says. But that may be an empty threat.

I’m beginning to feel defensive about living here.

If Arizona finds a way to shut off the electricity to California, then California can shut off the petroleum products that go to Arizona. Remember the pipeline failure in 2003 that shot gasoline prices in parts of Arizona way up? That pipeline comes from California refineries. And, there’s not enough spare pipeline & tanker capacity to keep gasoline from other states to keep gasoline prices in Arizona down.

And, how will Arizona strike back at Austin & Seattle?

With all the controversy surrounding illegal immigration and the new Arizona Law, I thought it might be interesting to take satirical look at the other side of the coin. Here is a video I put together to make my point.

Operation Wet_back was a 1954 operation by the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to remove about one million illegal immigrants from the southwestern United States, focusing on Mexican nationals.

Simple question:

What happens if someone jumps the fence and wanders around a gated community without an ID and a resident of the community calls the cops saying someone that doesn’t look like they belong here is roaming the streets?  The cops arrive. They would ask the wanderer a few questions.  If wanderer does not have a valid reason for being inside the gated community, the cops would escort them out, wouldn’t they? Isn’t a country, like the USA, a “gated community”, too?
