A couple of days ago, the wonderful and noteworthy bloggers at HillBuzz posted about the Arizona border debate.
Titled "Hey – do you like to buy stuff? Then buy stuff from Arizona. It’s BUYCOTT time, baby," the post and its comments section are a wonderful compliment to the efforts of those in Arizona's government who are trying to uphold the law.
From the post:
So, last night we had to order a couple of books for a project we’re working on, and we went to ABEbooks.com, like we usually do, to find the cheapest titles we could find. Instead of ordering from one of the Illinois or Indiana sellers like normal (because it would get to us faster), we looked through all the available books until we found a seller in Arizona.
Since the Left is caterwauling to “boycott Arizona” because Governor Jan Brewer decided to enforce the law against illegal aliens, we decided to support Arizona in our own small way, and bought something we needed, and were going to buy anyway, from an Arizona business.
While we were at it, we also looked online for an Arizona company that sells cactus candy, because we happen to love the stuff, and haven’t had any in a while. So, we got ourselves some of that, too, for the candy bowl here at Buzzquarters.
For the foreseeable future, whatever else we need, from candy to books to an Urn of Osiris or a kaleidoscope, we’re going to buy it from an Arizonan business as much as possible.
It’s a BUYCOTT, baby.
And, it’s hella on.
