This week two more governmental departments: the county board of supervisors & Los Angeles Unified School District are considering joining the boycott of Arizona. The LA County Board of Supervisors have more power than even the mayor & city council of LA since the county has twice the population of the city. That's a lot of contracts. The other boycott threat is from the largest school district in the nation.

You know who will give "a rat's ass"? = Arizona companies desperate for business. I don't think that is funny at all and the empty pockets of lost revenue can only hurt the Arizona economy all the more.

I guess they didn't learn from San Diego. The Council has been apologizing ever since opening their big mouths as the AZ tourists wrote letters telling SD to pound sand and they'll stay home.

S Cal has a lot more to lose from Tourism than anything being bought by consumers in AZ. Disneyland will be freaking out about the lost revenue.

Just reported @ 1:00 PM CST - SD has been sending letters back saying, "Please come!"

Sounds like you're giving us an Illegal Alien Chamber of Commerce argument. Scumbag employers of illegals who sell to illegals are hurting for customers what with all of the illegals fleeing to mexifornia? Scumbag employers who hire and cater to illegals can move to mexifornia too?

all the article said pretty much was, maybe, it could happen, yap, yap, yap!! After the backlash with San Diago, I think there will be fewer and fewer wanting to consider any boycott. The only one that will be supporting it will be the illegals, and those with family members that are illegals. Many who post on this thread, hoping for a boycott probably fit into this scenario.

In other news, Los Angeles still in terrible fiscal shape and does nothing to solve it except condemn other states for their laws.

Arizona's population: 6,595,778
California's population: 36,457,549

Now who did you say would be freaking out about lost revenue?
