That is so unconstitutional, it isn't funny.

I don't know where to begin about this stupid, lame Progressive thinking. Talk about controlling the citizens.


I guess if you work for the government, your going to have to give up your freedom to make your own choice.
I smell a law suit! Can San Francisco afford it?

Those people are so wacked out. Look at Pelosi. Is she an example of your typical SF politician?

The larger question for me here is this...

California is in financial crisis. Their state is on the verge of collapse. Their state is full of wonderful places to hold a convention, especially for workers from their own state, and that in turn would return money back into state coffers.

Though Mayor Newsome is no doubt doing this for attention, I think it's a great idea. California needs to spend money in California. Send your government workers to meet each other at the numerous places within your own state. Your financial house is on fire and instead of being logical and figuring out a way to stop the bleeding, they are spending their time butting into another state's affairs that they have no business meddling in. And you wonder why California, as beautiful of a state as it is, is a mess. Exhibit A...

City employees on Official buisness. It is just a boycott by the city government.
There is nothing preventing city employees from going there on their own time.

Arizona can do what they want, until this law is found unconstitutional that is, but in the meantime...make them pay for it..

Typical left wing thinking. Make everyone think like you do, if they don't want to , hurt them in some way, MAKE THEM PAY. Those of us who have to live with these bloody illegals are paying to the point of pain every single day you moron! If you were in the same boat with us, I doubt you would be quite so touchy feely and 'compassionate' about the 'plight' of these parasites. If you love them so much, maybe they can just come stay with you.

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?
I agree I am in San Francisco right now. I live in Los Angeles and if Los Angeles boycotts also I am so ready to get the hell out of this screwed up state. Such a shame to have such beautiful weather and scenery but so messed up political views. What a waste of such beauty.

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.
Hey Hey hey I have a California license plate and I am totally against the boycott. I am totally for what Arizona is doing and I wish they would do the same out here in California.
