Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

AZ utility company to LA: Do you still want electricity in your city?

As if Chris Christie’s takedown of a liberal reporter (pardon the redundancy) wasn’t enough to make me orgasmic, this retort from the AZ power commission to LA regarding an AZ boycott oughta do the trick.  Link to PDF here.

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

Ball’s in your court now, LA.  😆

UPDATED: Dodd’s seat in CT in danger of flipping to GOP?

UPDATES BELOW.

Before the corrupt Sen. Chris Dodd (D-CT) announced his intent to not seek re-election, that seat was a guaranteed GOP pick-up, even in a state as blue as CT.  Dodd succumbed to the party machine’s request that he not seek re-election, and it has looked ever since that the seat would remain in Corruptocrat hands.

Well, maybe not.  The frontrunner on the Dem side, CT Attorney General Richard Blumenthal, has been caught in a scandalous and humiliating lie.  Details exposed by…wait, what?  The NYT?  OK, how did this make it past the editors?

“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Mr. Blumenthal said to the group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008. “And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.”

There was one problem: Mr. Blumenthal, a Democrat now running for the United States Senate, never served in Vietnam. He obtained at least five military deferments from 1965 to 1970 and took repeated steps that enabled him to avoid going to war, according to records.

Hey, at least when Jean-Francois Heinz-Kerry reminded us ad nauseum that he served in Vietnam, he was actually there.

On the one hand, this kind of startling discovery brings a huge negative stigma that would sink virtually any campaign.  On the other hand, penning kiddie p$rn wasn’t enough to sink Jim “Cambodian Boy” Webb back in 2006, nor was boinking an underage male House page enough to unseat Rep. Gerry Studds (D-MA), so don’t ever underestimate the depravity of Democrats in an election.

UPDATE (5/18/2010 – 2:01 PM EST):  So who comes galloping to Blumenthal’s rescue with a glowing character reference?  Chris “Countrywide” Dodd himself!  Are they trying to lose this seat?
