So,the Los Angeles City council voted to boycott............

by Tony Holmes / May 19, 2010 6:33 AM PDT

Arizona and Arizona based companies in an effort to hurt their economy,a position their loud mouth mayor supports strongly.In fact,he wants to cancel business contracts with AZ to hurt them further.All this over a law nobody has read but they all criticise.

The Commissioner of the AZ Corporation Commission sent what I think is a well written letter to the mayor,taking him down a notch.He made the mayor aware of what a boycott of all Arizona businesses would mean to LA.I don't find the letter threatening at all,like I've heard reported today.

A pdf of the actual letter:

Hispanic ?

Do you mean Mexican?

"Hispanic" was kind of invented in 1970

Members of the Obama administration, who soundly condemned Arizona's new immigration law, are now admitted that they have never even read it.

My command of the English language is nothing to write home about, BUT shouldn't it be

Members of the Obama administration, who soundly condemned Arizona's new immigration law, are now admiting that they have never even read it.

OR

Members of the Obama administration, who soundly condemned Arizona's new immigration law, have now admitted that they have never even read it.

And you said "nobody has read", somebody has,...unless they say they didn't, you have to assume they did...if they say they did, or didn't say they didn't.

Since you have no problem with AZ doing the illegal immigrant thing, you should also have no problem with the repercussions from other states that disagree with AZ.

Don't want to do business with AZ, fine. No power, no water. It's what they want, isn't it?

They should cut the electricity anyway. Water can wait.

Why should LA be allowed to threaten AZ, but not the other way around?

Typical liberal hypocrisy.

Our mayor just did the same today

It's seems to be a growing political movement that I don't care for. None of us outside of AZ are experiencing the problem that brought this issue to a head. We are all neighbors but each with our own governing body and we need to respect those rights of autonomy. There's no place for bullying here.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
