Protesting the LA City Council Boycott of AZ

Much like a Phil Jennerjahn press announcement, only a pitiful group of 30 people showed up outside City Hall to voice their objections to the City Council's boycott of Arizona. The dismal event was organized by Gary Aminoff of the Republican Party of Los Angeles County. Promotion for the protest had circulated through emails and via radio talk shows for at least the last week.

I don't know why they do these things while people are working.

Anyway 30 is a pretty poor showing its still more than three times that the number who showed up to protest FOR the boycott at Staples.

I'm just saying.

Also - San Diego totally freaked out over the boycott organized in AZ. They lost $10 million from Arizonans who cancelled trips there. Until they clarified they didn't mean to boycott Arizona, just pass a resolution of censure.

They have no business cancelling all contracts with Arizona at least until they see the economic impacts. Janice Hahn was just grandstanding because she wants to match Gavin Newsom, and Zine who was for overturning SO40 in favor of a law like Arizona's demanding that cops check anyone who might be illegal without needing another pretext, along with Nooch as a very public part of their city attorney platform now voted WITH Janice Hahn and the majority. Hahn supported Zine and Trutanich during their campaign when she was very aware how they felt.

Only Smith had the courage of his convictions to vote against them.

It's an awful law but they're raising every fee imaginable including jacking up ambulances to $1000 per call (Cardenas), parking meter rates and fines, DWP bills so it can put money back into the General Fund - we can't afford it.

This is such BS. Jennerjahn has never had 30 people attend any of his self promoting events!

This protest had been planned for some time, organized by a large established group and promoted all over the place.

The Staples Center protest was practically spontaneous with little notice or organization.

it bothers me when people refer to Republicans as Conservatives. Being a Republican doesn't mean you're a conservative. The same, though not always, could be true the other way around.
But Aminoff has his SFV Republican club that he also passes off as the SFV Conservative Club... PICK ONE, MAN!
Is his Republican/Conservative Club now also a Tea Party Club?

And why do the Republicans ("Conservatives) keep planning protests in the middle of work days? They never get a huge turn out. They protested health care and the stimulus with a bad showing.
Either they are scared to be seen in public, don't know what the schedules of their members are, or don't have enough followers.

Trojan2002,
They plan these events on work days precisely so they can blame the low turnout on it being a work day. The truth be known, they have few supporters.

Hope Arizona turns off the lights in Los Angeles. That will teach LA to mess with them. Maybe LA will learn that Arizona is tired of all the crime the illegals bring to their state.

On second thought, Los Angeles never learns their lesson to take care of business at home before sticking their nose where it doesn't belong.

I don't understand...The Mexicans who now control this city should be overjoyed at the AZ law! It means more illegals and anchor brats for L.A.! Isn't this what Reconquista was all about???
