Arizona threatens to pull California's power plug

File this under turnabout is fair play:

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.

"That is one commissioner who has that idea -- whether he can do that or not is another idea," said LA Councilman Dennis Zine. "They are the ones who have to make the move, not us."

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.

Pull it... and move on.

Ought to shut the boycotters the hell up.

DJ Drummond:

I would really love to have a look at that contract. Normally, a government contract is protected out the yahoo - I guarantee AZ is looking to see what is connected to that power line. If the power goes to hospitals, police stations, and so on, they pretty much to leave the power on. If it's 'general use', however, well that's a whole different situation. And yes, it would take someone pretty stupid to sign a contract that would allow the supplier to cancel it quicky, let's not forget Governor Grey Davis - Enron (yes that Enron) offered a contract in 2000 to LA and various major population areas for emergency power (seems Cali was sucking way more power than it had provided for in the original contracts) which basically said 'you will pay whatever we demand' and Gov. Davis signed it pretty much without reading it. Would not shock me at all if the present contract had some surprises in it.

Worse for Cali, AZ can sell its extra power pretty easily. It's located in a grid which allows it to sell to other states, the Feds, and more than a few corporate bidders.

Also, having worked with contracts I also wonder if this one has clauses in it about 'good faith' - a boycott against the state of Arizona would contitute breach of contract if such a clause was in there - AZ could possibly not only shut off the lights, but send a final bill with a termination penalty.

Breaking news in Orange County:

ORANGE - A 17-year-old deported felon has barricaded himself inside Tacos Garcia near Glassell Street and Collins Avenue, police said. The teen's mother, who was also inside the taqueria, has been detained, said Orange police Sgt. Dan Adams.

The situation began at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday when Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers went to the taqueria at 918 North Glassell St. looking for a deported felon who had sneaked back in the country, Adams said.
The detention and removal officers were conducting routine enforcement activities and were working on a lead that the teen, who had been previously deported, was at the business, said ICE spokeswoman Lori Haley.

The teen threw a blender or a meat grinder at one of the officers and then ran to a restroom inside the business and barricaded himself, Adams said, adding that the officer was not injured. Haley declined to comment about the teen's immigration status citing ICE's privacy guidelines, but did say his criminal record stemmed from weapon-related charges.

Negotiators are trying to get the teen to surrender. They have been talking on the phone with someone inside the business, possibly a relative, Adams said. "We'll be here until he comes out," Adams said. The teen has not yet been publicly identified. Once he is detained, he will be facing assault with a deadly weapon charges for attacking the ICE, Adams said.

I'm sure Lee Ward will vouch for this young man's integrity. Some RACIST! cop probably FRAMED this young man in the past, thus destroying his dreams of a happy future.

DavidB:

Lee, you really are that simple. Here, just for you is the full text of the letter sent;

Dear Mayor Villaraigosa,

I was dismayed to learn that the Los Angeles City Council voted to boycott Arizona and Arizona-based companies -- a vote you strongly supported -- to show opposition to SB 1070 (Support our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act).

You explained your support of the boycott as follows: "While we recognize that as neighbors, we share resources and ties with the State of Arizona that may be difficult to sever, our goal is not to hurt the local economy of Los Angeles, but to impact the economy of Arizona. Our intent is to use our dollars -- or the withholding of our dollars -- to send a message." (emphasis added)

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.

People of goodwill can disagree over the merits of SB 1070. A state-wide economic boycott of Arizona is not a message sent in goodwill.

Sincerely,

Commissioner Gary Pierce

You may notice that he doesn't threaten to "pull the plug," but more as a neighborly gesture, wants to help Major Viva La Raza meet his goal of boycotting Arizona.

Of course, if the Mayor of LA actually had any balls, he would follow through.

But you, like him, are typical of that ilk, never bother to read the law, or the letter, just knee jerk react and resort to calling everyone a racist.

It's called the law Lee, read it, know it, live it. If you don't like it, move to Mexico, or some other garden spot on the globe. Oh, wait, they have immigration laws and enforce them, DAMN!
