    Sorry, it won't cause a stink, it will cause riots which will bring in the FEDS. Think about it and get out and support people like me in CA who hate what is going on here. I will do my part in exercising my voting rights, but we will need everyone's support. The FEDS will NOT allow AZ to cut off water to CA. It will just not happen folks, they will take over every drop of water in the Colorado quicker than you can say boo and take every bit of your cherished civil rights with it.

    Relax, guys. While I truly am a secessionist at heart, I fully realize it's been tried once, failed, and is not going to happen again. That said, as far as "helping out", I've been doing that my whole life as the fed took money away from me and my family in pursuit of the Great Society, War on Poverty, War on Drugs, Education reform and other "let's help 'em out" redistributive programs. Now, the redistribution is accelerating and I'm having none of it. Give my tax money to California to bail them out of their socialist mess? Not on your life would I agree to that. I sympathize with ya'll who live there, but the tap is dry here. And behind California is a whole host of states bordering on bankruptcy. I say, let 'em eat cake. Their own cake, not mine. There is NO sympathy here for the socialist agenda AT ALL.

    As for moving, I understand "inertia". However, I uprooted myself and my familly years ago to move here from the socialst stronghold of Maryland (my home state whose people and geography I love) and Washington D.C. (where I worked). Was it tough? Sure was, took a 60% pay cut to do it. Do I like harsh winters? Nope, but it keeps out the riffraff (to a large degree). Do I like down-to-earth, close to the land type of people with a strong gun culture? You bet I do.

    I have no doubt in my mind that I would beat feet out of CA so fast I'd look like the Wily Coyote roadrunner buzzing across the desert. I did it. You do it. I can't believe you're ever gonna remake and restore CA.

    Brother Patriots, I do not mean to offend so don't take anything I write in that vein.

    Dear JJ, the support I was talking about is moral support, not monetary. I live here in CA and as far as I am concerned, we will never get rid of the tax and spend, special interest machine until it completely falls apart. But of course the tax and spend, special interest machine in Washington DC will declare CA too big to fail and take it over just like GM. Send Washington DC a message this November by dumping the bums and putting in real representatives if we can find any. That will be the best way to get the attention of these people in Sacramento who know they have a hand out coming from the current administration. They have no incentive to slash spending unless they get the message that there will be no one to pick up the mess they have created. That is the support I am looking for and to let the economic drive out the tax and spend machine.

    As far as leaving, that is not possible due to my medical condition at present. Otherwise, I would never have returned home from Idaho a month ago. The good news is that I should be able to buy a small house in Idaho if the place completely implodes. We will be back up there in about three weeks. So, I will escape if I can, but it is not at all possible today. Some things just are what they are no matter how much you wish to change them.

    God bless,

    I'm with you 100% and did exactly the same as you did. I was born and raised in SO. CALIFORNIA, I can remember when it was, believe it or not, a wonderful place to live. My wife and I owned a beautiful home and I'd been in business for myself for over 20 yrs., and all of our family live there. My wife and I decided that we could no longer tolerate the liberal garbage and refused to work and pay anymore taxes to support it. We had a lot to give up, a lot to lose by selling everything and moving away. I told our family that should they stay, they have no right to complain when things continue to get worse. I always told them, Choices & Consequences is what life is all about. I've never experienced an ounce of regret, and my life is better now than ever before. I not only buzzed across the desert, I chose to live in the desert, Wily Coyote is now my neighbor, and I have freedoms here in Arizona that are impossible to imagine back in The Peoples Republic of Mexifornia. I did it too, no excuses.
    In America today, it's considered worse to judge evil than to do evil. Never let these Christophobic Liberal Progressive Purveyors of Infanticide & Homosexual Perversion who always manipulate truth to be hate speech set the terms in a debate.

    Is anyone aware of any state vs. state conflicts over the past 150 years similar to this?
    I can't fault Arizona for trying to protect their own.

    Relax Alaska........that was meant tongue-n-cheek; sarcastically!!!
    You have my support as do all the friends I have in CA, but there is that old adage, be careful what you ask for. CA's situation didnt just happen over-night, it came over the last several decades as the result of the political leaders that were "voted" into office giving the people of CA exactly what they wanted. I know that doesnt mean all of you!!! but this is a perfect example of the lobster in the pot (thats not the inhaling kind of pot CA is working on now).
    As for the riot.....unforunatley, if the nation as a whole is allowed to continue on the path this administration has us on, I for one beleive that is the only re-course. In which case I wouldnt use the term riot, but revolution.
    This situation with AZ is a prime example........a soverign state enforcing a law (federal) but bolstering it with a state law to protect itself from criminal invasion and the current POTUS nationally chastises them in the company of the president of Mexico, the very person whom he should be attacking. Nothing about this is good.
    If CA continues on this way, with governor supporting a state sponsored boycot of another sate then AZ has the right to respond in-kind. Is restricting the flow of water the answer, probably not, but it is a possibility, as is the response you site. May not be what we want to hear but...............quite honestly I favor putting every damn one of the illegals caught, on a bus to CA and right to your Gov. front door. If your Gov doesnt quit acting like a political dumbo there is no telling what might happen.
    nothing about this is directed at you personally my friend, just stating my opinion.

    We live in an era where the FEDS continue to grab more and more power through various crises, many of which they have orchestrated. My main point is to not fall into the traps of over reacting which would give the FEDS an excuse to come in and manage the situation. They would like that more than anything. Obviously, one state shutting off power or water to another state and placing those residents in jeopardy would be one such situation that I could easily imagine being an excuse for the FEDS to take over the water and power authority from AZ and nationalize it.

    If they can nationalize GM for purely economic factors, throw in economic and possible harm to those without power and water and what do you think the response will be by the FEDS? Arizona needs to be very careful on how they answer the boycott issues. We need to not fall into the planned response that they want us to. Other states and their residents need to stand up for AZ. It is not really the battle that we need to look at, it is beyond this to the point of what will the counter attack against AZ state sovereignty be.

  11. Tit for Tat

    If LA actually does boycott Arizona, then prisoners should be sent back, water supplies reduced and electricity reduced - say 5% a week until the boycott is discontinued.
