Cutting off the nose to spite the face

In typical liberal fighting fashion, the city of Los Angeles has been kicking, biting, and pulling the hair of its neighbor Arizona. When Arizona responded with a solid sock in the jaw they began to cry and run for the school yard supervisor.

The city of Los Angeles who is boldly, indignantly, righteously, and dramatically threatening to punish the State of Arizona for it's law that requires the enforcement of Federal law is now facing threats of losing 25% of it's electricity if they carry out their planned boycott.

L.A. Mayor Dismisses Warning That Arizona Could Cut Off Power Over Boycott

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Wednesday defiantly rejected a warning by a top Arizona utilities official that the state could cut off power to Los Angeles should the city proceed with its boycott of all things Arizona. 

"If an economic boycott is truly what you desire, I will be happy to encourage Arizona utilities to renegotiate your power agreements so Los Angeles no longer receives any power from Arizona-based generation." 

"I am confident that Arizona's utilities would be happy to take those electrons off your hands," Pierce wrote. "If, however, you find that the City Council lacks the strength of its convictions to turn off the lights in Los Angeles and boycott Arizona power, please reconsider the wisdom of attempting to harm Arizona's economy." 
What is good for the goose is good for the gander. The latino mayor's logic of 'No No. You have to take our sanctions and you can do nothing about it' is the same logic that says 'No No. We will brake your laws and enter your country and there is nothing you can do about it'.  Well, we'll see about that.
