    LA is a fun town if you know where to go. Hollywood has some amazing bars and clubs. I'm definitely not the type to dance but this Hollywood bar/club (I seriously don't know which one it was!) I went to was AMAZING!!! There was a dance floor right next to the bar and it was absolutely packed and everyone was dancing; I had no choice but to join the party. Man, I had some good times out there... : D

    Can I say that "I can't go to Los Angales and get around without knowing Spanish"? These guys are acting all butt hurt over a law that the Republicans have passed that they aren't happy with. Who boycotts a state over something that isn't their business? They are acting like little children throwing hissy fits.
    To be perfectly fair I think the law in Arizona does affect California.

    The illegals will be leaving Arizona in droves and going to sanctuary California thereby putting an even greater burden on the state.

    I don't think the boycott or even threats of not doing furutre business with Arizona will hurt Arizona at all, after all you can't buy anything with IOUs.

    Yes, I am aware of a driver having to show a license. Most illegals do not drive.
    You realize that federal law has long required that aliens carry identification with them at all times, right?

    Why muddy the water with facts? The law itself has been modified to appease a singular minority, it's within the Federal laws and guidelines that have existed for decades regarding illegals. They (the supporters of illegals in this country) don't want to know the facts they just want to scream "racist" at the top of their lungs and incite violence. If LA wants all the illegals, Arizona should pick them up with this law and send them to LA. Maybe they all can sleep at the LA Council and Mayor's house.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    The law does not permit LEOs to arbitrarily stop people and demand ID of them, nor does it criminalize not having an ID. Also, determinations of immigration status may only occur incident to a lawful stop.

    Read the law, please.

    Non issue? Phoenix was not choosen over Tampa Bay for non immigration issues wink wink. You can spin it all you want, the decision gives the appearance of it being moved for the immigration reason. Secondly, the GOP running up and down the street in AZ will cast a bad light on the GOP, and they don't want to turn off latino GOP, etc., so they are not having it here.

    Judge Napolitano: Ariz. Immigration law will ?bankrupt the Republican Party? | Ron Paul 2012 | Campaign for Liberty at the Daily Paul.

    Hey if the law is so great, why aren't all the other Red states jumping on the band wagon to pass similar laws? Second thoughts. Boycotts scaring red states?

    Arizona has been involved in this crap before the the MLK holiday. We lost a lot of money because of boycotts, and the moderates and liberals got off there asses and voted for the holiday.

    The law will be overturned, the US Constitution states Congress makes laws concerning naturalization, not AZ (To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization, Article 1 Section 8).

    Yeah, polls are always correct. Who took the poll? How many were asked the question? where did the respondents live?
