    Isn't California a state with rolling blackouts during the summer? I would think that is a pretty good indication that they can't get their power from somewhere else.


    Secondly this threat is a bigger threat for Arizona than California, since Arizona would loose income.
    This isn't about the whole state of California, just Los Angeles.

    And finally.. I would wager they have a contract of some sort.. think Arizona could pay those penalties?
    If Los Angeles decides to cut off all business with Arizona then wouldn't Los Angeles be the on to pay those penalties?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Los Angeles is a known den of illegal activity. Naturally, the illegals are unhappy about being forced to follow the law.

    I bet half the members of that council are illegal. I say we screen them for legal residence and see how it plays out.

    Not logical. If CA can get power somewhere else. AZ can sell that power that goes to CA to some other state. As far as business., I am hoping AZ boycotts San Diego, etc. Lot of us you to go to CA for vacation. I for one will not.

    My god. "THEY" have infiltrated LA city councils? I need to upgrade my tinfoil hat before it's too late!

    And those exact same concerns exist with LA's threat to boycott AZ, yet you don't seem too concerned about that.

    Yeah - I'm not quite understanding *how* Las Angeles is even able to "get" power that's produced *in* AZ - that's a long way away.

    Wouldn't it be more affordable to just harness powers already nearby?
