Here we go again in California, where yet another City Council decided to take a vote on whether or not they should impose economic sanctions on the State of Arizona because of their new anti-illegal immigration law. From the Sacramento Bee…
The Sacramento City Council voted Tuesday night to place economic sanctions against Arizona companies in response to that state’s immigration laws. The sanctions passed by a 6-1 council vote are on par with the broadest actions passed by other California cities, including Los Angeles, San Francisco and Oakland.
They include forbidding city workers from attending conferences in Arizona on the city’s dime, boycotting companies based in Arizona “where practicable and where there is no significant additional cost to the city” and potentially canceling current contracts with firms from Arizona.
This is exactly what happens when your community, city or State has been in the vise-grip of Liberal Command and Control for far too long. You end up with city council members who say…
“For those who would criticize us for using our time to address this critical issue in our country’s history, I would say this: How can we not?” said Councilman Rob Fong, who called for the debate.
Fong added, “I’ve never been more proud of us” and said the city was “standing on the right side of history.”
I think that “history” will judge things a little differently… OK, Mr. Fong, the city of Sacramento, and the State of California – game on!
Maybe Gov. Jan Brewer can declare a one-week moratorium on ALL goods, services and electricity that is supplied to California from Arizona. If the President can put 10,000 oil-rig workers in the unemployment line indefinitely on a whim, why can’t a Governor suspend the aforementioned for a mere week? When the lights turn off, bills aren’t collected, phones aren’t answered, the semi-trucks and rail-cars don’t arrive, I wonder if it will take more than a few days for the citizens of California to start melting down? How quickly will those city council members start feeling the heat from their constituents due to their misguided policies? San Diego is already feeling Arizona’s reaction to their boycott!
Lets ensure that the rest of the State feels the same pain!
