The LA city council jumped on the bandwagon with the Boston city council and others around the country in boycotting Arizona over the newly passed illegal immigration law SB-1070. This time Arizona is fighting back. Read the letter written by Gary Pierce, a commissioner on the five-member Arizona Corporation Commission is telling Antonio Villaraigosa, the Mayor of LA, to either seriously cut all ties with Arizona (including the electricity) or reconsider the wisdom of a boycott. A good chunk of LA's power comes from Arizona. If the boycott continues Arizona could potentially pull the plug on LA. Is Obama's lack of leadership polarizing the country and vetting state against state? Is it fair for Obama to take sides with certain states over others? Aren't we called the "United" States? It is it called when the federal government starts lording over the states?
