    This is stupid, proof that protectionism (on both sides) is bad right here.
    Hoover Dam, once known as Boulder Dam, is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the U.S. states of Arizona and Nevada. Correct me, but what does CA have to do with a dam in Nevada?

    I took his comment as just a joke.

    DRZ-400 - are you being serious?

    I've been to the Hoover Dam, it aint got nuthin to do with California. It sits on the stateline of Nevada/Arizona.

    I guess if you can't just pick out the bad apples you've gotta card everyone at the door. . . too bad they won't actually make the system work, Democrats fail horribly at getting technology to be on their side.
    How is a national ID going to stop dishonest businesses from hiring illegals? Seems to me that if those dishonest enough to hire illegals either do not care they are hiring illegals or actively seeking illegals are not going to be deterred by a lack of national ID. If they made it a federal law that you had to show an national ID in order to enroll kids into school, buy groceries, get a bank account, wire money, buy money orders and so on then a national ID might stop illegals.
    "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"

    Do you know where 45% to 50% of the power from hoover dam goes? I can tell you it is not Nevada or Arizona.

    Do you know who has the largest amount of water shares for the hoover dam? I can tell you it is not Arizona or Nevada.

    I'm just kidding though, california cannot take more water than it owns, and arizona cannot take californias power.

    Hard to be careful when your citizens are being kidnapped, murdered and raped all in the name of avoiding being thought to be racist. . . or some other state's interest in What's LA's interest, here? Ensuring that they're forever in debt?

    You'd think they'd be thankful.
    Illegal Immigration sure as hell hasn't helped California out at freaking all - but they want it to continue?
    Thats not really what I was getting at. Mostly its stupid how both are threatening each other.

    What penalties can LA pursue for AZ just following the law that the LA city council enacted when they passed the boycott?

    Sure.

    LA can get it's power elsewhere.

    And pay more money for it.

    Remember, Los Angeles is a city that decided to safe a few buck by forcing the homeowner to repair the sidewalks. It's just going to love paying double for megawatt-hours.

    And Arizona shouldn't just threaten, it should follow through. The sooner the corrupt governments of California are shut down, the sooner they'll be replaced with Americans.
