Some in Arizona canceling trips to S.D. Outrage over local censure votes may be a misunderstanding
signonsandiego.com ^ | 5/17/10 | Lori Weisberg, UNION-TRIBUNE STAFF WRITER

Posted on 05/17/2010 2:02:12 PM PDT by Nachum

San Diego tourism leaders and hoteliers fear they could lose a sizable chunk of business this summer from valued “Zonies” who are so angered by elected leaders’ recent censure of Arizona for its illegal-immigration law that they’re mounting an informal boycott of their own.

The San Diego Convention & Visitors Bureau and several hotels report receiving e-mails and letters from Arizona visitors saying they intend to change their plans to travel here in light of local outcry over their home state’s anti-illegal-immigration stance.

Sometimes but when I boycott "Best Buy", how do they cut me back?

Classic liberal thinking, not thinking through the pros (and cons) of their actions. Since everything is so “feel good” and “PC”, negative ramifications are never considered. Good for the people of Arizona.

Why boycott CA wine. Much of is made here in Central CA and we have nothing to do with LA or SF.

SOooo the SD Convention and Visitors Bureau emails the BOYCOTTING TRAVELERS....
--Asking THEM TO IGNORE the petty actions of their city council and government resolution...
-- And come to SD anyway...???

INSTEAD of telling their local politicians how childish and stupid they look...??

Who is running the asylum in the Pipple's Republik...??

Since the government of San Diego is “of, by and for the people”, there is no misunderstanding here. AZ residents know what they are doing.

Sounds like San Diego CVB values the rights of Illegal Aliens over the rights of American citizens.....the CVB should be after their own local government....and not blaming Arizona

Arizona stick to your guns....America is behind you. Only a few cities that like Illegals more than Americans will think of a boycott

May I suggest this wording:

“Dear Arizona friends,
We understand and share your outrage over the City Council’s participation in the widespread effort to strangle business in your state. We are not part of this, however. We are a free enterprise business while the boycott is the work of the communist occupation authorities (aka “liberal officials”) and their lackeys in the ministry of propaganda (aka “mainstream media”). We urge you to re-consider your position and support the remaining entrepreneurs who attempt to make a living under the weight of this occupation.”

Yep! My parents live at Sun City Grand, AZ and they told me the two places retirees like to ‘tool around’ is Vegas and San Diego. Apparently, retirees are literally holding meetings at clubhouses around Phoenix to boycott traveling to cities boycotting AZ!

Even if you never considered going to California you can notify your congresscritter you don't want your tax dollars to bailout the irresponsible California politicians when they come to Washington and ask (i.e taxpayers)to cover their "Welcome Mat" support of illegals and boycott of states who dare not to.

Almost all the reds are great with many of the same house/family names you would find in France. The whites are not bad. I looked at some last week and all the names have changed in the last couple of years since I bought a bunch, so have no specifics now. I do intend to regain my knowledge of them so ask again at the end of the summer!

Oh Please no one misunderstood their boycott. If you allow your city to pass this then you are part of it too and should not be surprised about this. I have a feeling that they will lose more than just these! If I were planning a convention and supported their stance on illegal immigration I’d avoid CA and go to AZ instead.

>>Could you boycott Starbucks next?<<

I live and work next to Seattle. My wife and I are huge fans of Market Spice tea. The only place to get it is the Market Spice store in the Pike place market downtown. We actually buy it for our friends in Chicago, South Dakota, Kentucky and Carlsbad California.

Seattle just voted unanimously to boycott Arizona. We’re boycotting the tea. Oh, and I’m boycotting Starbucks, seriously now. As John Adams said, the founding fathers, in fighting England, gave up their COMFORT. That is what keeps americans passive: They don’t fight back because they don’t want to lose all the “stuff”. Well, we’re trying to give up our “comfort” at every turn now.

In fact, we are avoiding the city completely, except we will use their “free” services as much as possible.

Yesterday we found a spiced tea that we actually enjoy almost as much as Market Spice. In fact, it’s a bit milder. We may just switch to it permanently.
