I really think everyone needs to cool down. People should not stop buying things from Arizona nor should they intentionally buy stuff to counter. Both actions escalate the current situation.

I do have a strong opinion on Arizona's new law, which I'm not going to share because that's irrelevant to my point. I refuse to blame or help businesses that are not responsible for this. People should assemble and be heard, either in support or opposition to the immigration law, but they shouldn't be intentionally making the situation worse. The Arizona economy should not be a target by anyone.

What the wack jobs on the left and the hispanics themselves fail to realize, in their hysterics at someone actually following the law, is the large LEGAL hispanic population employeed in Arizona. While the left winger zealots may feel all warm and cozy for now in their hater game, it will also be that population of LEGAL hispanics that will lose with boycotts.

Oh, did you go out and survey the "wack jobs on the left and the hispanics" and find failure in their realization?

I just love how you assume all sorts of things and then post them as gospel.

It is treasonous to try and harm another State in the Union and harm it's residents like the Democrats are doing.They are trying to impose harsher sanctions on Arizona than they have against Iran.

I know you are pretty passionate about Arizona. I've read a lot of your other posts. Do you know what the word treason means? I wouldn't throw it around so casually. Deciding not to buy something from a state or business is not treason. There have been boycotts before in this country. We haven't imploded as a result. And the idea that sanctions on Iran are lighter than what people are doing to Arizona is completely ridiculous.

Before you jump on me, let me remind you of your own recent post:

Quote:
I agree.Some of these trolls believe they have an emotional investment in the issue with no facts at all or anything to add. It's all right to disagree and argue your case,you're entitled to your own opinions even if you are wrong.
I recognize there is a problem with illegal immigration, but I don't think making outrageous comments will help convince people to take your side. I can understand why people in Arizona are upset. I wish someone would explain why residents of California and Texas and New Mexico do not seem to be as upset about it as Arizona. It's true that the southern border states are dealing with the worst of the illegal border crossing problem. However, every state in the country has been dealing with illegal immigration for many years now, not just Arizona.

Oh well. I guess I won't be able to drink Arizona Iced Tea anymore.




(yes I know it's not from Arizona.....) If it makes anyone feel better, a lot of idiot liberals have already called for a boycott of Arizona Iced Tea, not realizing it's from New York.

Welp, Im not willing to jump on the band wagon to Boycott any AMERICAN business right now that is trying to do right,,,,,,,what good, in this economic climate, would it be force the closure of more American business and put more Americans out of work.
None.
If you dont like the Arizona law, dont go there.
If you applaud the Arizona law, than go there.
If you stand on the side of Law and justice, than you decide if you approved of the approach of the Arizona legislature, who by the way did what a majority of THEIR citizens wanted.'
They frankly dont give a rats patoo what California or New Yaq think..........
