Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

Look no further for a perfect illustration of how the left is apparently incapable of thinking through the potential consequences of its actions. Last week, the Mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaragosa announced that his city would be boycotting the state of Arizona over the recently passed immigration law after making some delusional comment about illegal aliens being responsible for his city's "economic might" - a city that is basically bankrupt.

In response to Villaragosa, a Board member of the Arizona Corporation Commission named Gary Pierce sent a letter offering to cut off 25% of Los Angeles' power, which comes from Arizona businesses.

Here is an excerpt of the letter Pierce sent to Villaragosa courtesy of Hot Air:
I received your message; please receive mine. As a state-wide elected member of the Arizona Corporation Commission overseeing Arizona’s electric and water utilities, I too am keenly aware of the “resources and ties” we share with the City of Los Angeles. In fact, approximately twenty-five percent of the electricity consumed in Los Angeles is generated by power plants in Arizona.

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 am confident that Arizona’s utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands. 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.
