Attorney General Eric Holder Has NOT Read Immigration Law..........

..........yet he has trashed it.
How do you diss a law that you haven't read, especially the United States Attorney General????!!!!????????

UNBELIEVABLE.

"Despite repeatedly voicing concerns about Arizona's new immigration enforcement law in recent weeks and threatening to challenge it, Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday he has not yet read the law -- which is only 10 pages long.

"I have not had a chance to -- I've glanced at it," Holder said at a House Judiciary Committee hearing when asked had he read the state law cracking down on illegal immigrants.

Holder told reporters last month that he fears the new law is subject to abuse and that the Justice Department and the Homeland Security Department are in the midst of conducting a review"k

Would you "glance" at a bill that is getting the kind of negative outcry that it is, being the Attorney General of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, come out publicly and denounce the law and then, after doing so, ADMIT THAT YOU HAVEN'T EVEN READ THE LAW YET?

MORON!!!!
I will be continuing with this intent on my blog for a while. This whole Immigrant Bill has been taken to extremely outrageous proportions. If WE, the State of Arizona, it's people, business and corporations and the state as a whole, dole out back to these entities that are officially pronouncing a boycott against us, WHAT THEN?

Yes, I am especially liking the find I did today on California's dependence on the energy generated by OUR nuclear generating plant. I haven't heard anyone over there saying: "THAT POWER IS BEING GENERATED IN ARIZONA BY ARIZONAN, BOYCOTT THEIR POWER TOO!!"

THAT, folks, ISN'T going to happen. Why?

..............Arizona„s Palo Verde Nuclear power plant is the largest nuclear generating facility in the United States. It has supplied clean electricity for 4 million customers in Arizona and California for the past 22 years. The plant‟s three reactors, completed in 1988, have experienced 85% to 95% availability and annually produced ~3.2 gigawatts of electricity. Three reactors were eventually built for a total cost of $5.9 billion. In 2008 the operating cost to produce 1 megawatt of electricity at Palo Verde was 1.33 cents, 50 percent of average energy cost in the U.S. southwest, cheaper than both coal and gas fired electricity - and cleaner than both. The plant employed 2,386 workers during construction and today employs 2,055 directly. Another 3,943 are employed indirectly in the Maricopa County and the Arizona economy. In 2002, for example, the Palo Verde facility contributed $868 million to the local economy.............

Notice that that statement doesn't say "Arizona" only, it also includes California. Again, the graph of ownership in the plant:

30.4 percent ownership by California entities. That's off the top of my head, if you come up with something different, I'll change it. This is JUST electricity!!! THOUSANDS of Arizonans - maybe more than that - go to San Diego in the summertime to get away from our desert heat - hotels/entertainment/food/transportation.

Wanna see that go away, San Diego? How about Anaheim? It's a 4-1/2 drive to Anaheim - which houses, for one, Disneyland, - okay, it's much longer drive for most people, I don' like to waste time driving, but that isn't the point here - Anaheim, like to see all of Arizona's business go away?

What about the business we give to California? I haven't found any concrete figures on that - yet - but if/when I do, it will surely be posted here. It is, however, a very good amount of money being spent there to employ THEIR people (if they are going to treat us as space aliens, I am going to give them a dose back) and a HUGE influx of money to hotels/restaurants/entertainment beyond the theme parks.

No, I do believe we can flex our muscles here. California is more dependent on us than we are on them.

What say ye, CA?

Arizona Immigration SB 1070 - Boycott The State Of California - Los Angeles

Okay, Los Angeles, you own a 8.70 percent share of the Arizona Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station.
Does you boycott also include the exemption of using ARIZONA generated POWER??? HMMMM???

It seems California has an over 31% owned interest in the Palo Verde Nuclear plant.

Why? Because they CANNOT SURVIVE WITHOUT THE POWER COMING FROM THAT PLANT!!!

What are they going to do, BAN the electricity coming from that plant because it is generated and originated in Arizona?!!!

Arizona Immigration SB 1070 - Boycott The State Of California

I have had enough of this hype and hysteria over boycotting our great state - Arizona.
The state of California is the most outspoken state yet with cities all over officially boycotting the state of Arizona, and now an outspoken senator from that state wanting the ENTIRE state to boycott AZ. The latest city being Los Angeles.

It's time to turn the tables. Let's begin with shutting off the power coming from the Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Plant located about 70 or so miles west of Phoenix, Arizona, IN Arizona. California is HEAVILY reliant on that power coming from that power plant. You want to talk about rolling blackouts as California experienced several years ago? Shut THAT power off and there they go again. That will be my main focus and I am going to write the governor, senators, ops columns, voice it in comments at the bottoms of news feeds (already started doing that) until it gains some momentum. WE should be fighting BACK at this point. SCREW California. Let them STEW in their own juices - I guarantee you that if we, Arizona, said: "Great, you want to boycott us, we are going to boycott you" and shut that power off, that WILL get EVERYONE'S attention. We are already negatively viewed EVERYWHERE because of one, single bill that MIRRORS federal law!!!

That in itself should be enough to shut their mouths about an outrageous, ill-gotten, boycott.

Let's also start talking about all the Arizonans that go to San Diego - the Phoenix Hideaway during summers here in the hot desert state - and having all of those folks BAN San Diego. Oh, and Anaheim, California as well.

Further, for you opponents of the bill, since this bill does mirror Federal law, why aren't you boycotting our Federal Government? They MUST be racist too, it's the law of the land!! HYPOCRITES!! Why aren't you standing on Obama's doorstep demanding that we do away with the Law of The Land as well? No, I haven't heard ANYTHING about that going on.

Arizonans, let's step up to the plate and smack it to them right back in their faces and BOYCOTT THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA!!!

Is It Thursday Already?

So, the "great" city of Los Angeles has boycotted Arizona. You know? What goes around comes around. It will end up right back on their lap in one form or another. Apparently, Arizona has much more money going to California than CA has coming here, at least according to news reports, if WE pull out, THEY stand to lose. Should we act in kind? You're darn right we should, they want to give some kind of kneejerk reaction related to a hysteria that seems to be sweeping the country, I say let AZ respond back. But that's just me.

There was only one city council-member who voted against, stating that the council really has no business in sticking it's nose into another STATE'S legal actions. Really? One person with an actual brain functioning on it's own, kudos to that city-council member. When the mob-mentality takes over, and in a very real sense that's what's going on here, people don't think for themselves. They react to what others are doing and act out on the impulses that are being generated by that mob. It will, sooner or later, be reported in the news about businesses that operate in Arizona pulling out of those city's/states and doing business elsewhere.

Well, I got so involved in reading the news I lost track of time and here it is, almost 6:00 am and time to get about the day's business.

G'day.

After careful consideration, I decided to simply try to take a nap this afternoon for at least an hour, or however long I can get out of it,...
