Default Boycott Arizona???

San Francisco has proposed a boycott of business with Arizona. They want to expand it to the State of California. Personally, I don't believe any city or state should try to punish another financially just because the Federal government isn't doing its job. The solution in Arizona may not be the best, but since we don't live there, we can't fault Arizonans for trying to protect their life and property.

If SF goes through with this, I will boycott spending anything in SF. It only amounts to a few thousand dollars a year for restaurants, hotels, and concert tickets, but its my small statement. What are your thoughts?

Why would anyone from any city, need to go to another state for official business. Or a whole lot of business? Budgets are tight these days.

I think i'll book me a flight to Phoenix. And smile profusely as I enjoy an American Pale Ale, a BBQ Sandwich, and a nice big piece of Apple Pie.

I have more respect for the people of AZ as a result of this law. American Patriots who see this nation as a nation of laws, not a nation of scofflaws.

the effect of this 'boycott' will likely be very similar to the ones where companies who had never advertised on the glenn beck show voiced their outrage by continuing not to advertise on the glenn beck show

I live in Arizona and, as some of you who have read my posts know, I have my doubts about this bill.

However, if SF or LA want to boycott Arizona, I am more than happy to return the compliment. I might even get less tolerant of all those CA plates we see on our roads.

I'm going to be spending EXTRA money in San Francisco. When I've had the opportunity, I love going down and seeing the Giants play anyway...now I'm going to make a point of it.
