We moved to Apache Junction which is just east of Mesa. We really fell in love with the area and the beautiful desert mountains,wildlife,people were so friendly and courteous......Well, all that has changed !!!
Deserts are inhospitable places to live. You move there. Now you complain because other people move there.

Can someone else complete this thread? I haven't got the energy to unblind the blind.

Deserts are NOT inhospitable. Some like it, some dont. It takes a certain taste to really appreiciate the deserts' unique beauty. I love it now, and always have.
Talk about blind leading the blind, if you will, you sound like someone who has never seen the desert, or has but never saw the real beauty of it. Who cares if others move here, they have every right too, whether they like it or not-- what they want is what they want.

In the end, personal preference I guess.

Your post exemplifies the stupifying fallacy that our suburbanized, self-important, consumerist society lives by. Here's an insight: you don't have a right to live someplace that doesn't have the carrying capacity for the people that live there. If you gotta pipe the water in, you shouldn't live there.

So what's your point exactly? Should we build surburbs on the Moon if people want to live there? The blind leading the blind indeed.

For your information, I've seen the desert and appreciate the beauty. It's especially awe-inspiring without the golfcart riding, mouth-breathing indoor-dwellers who gripe about the other golfcart-riding, mouth-breathing indoor-dwellers blocking their view.

Nah, just playing to the fan base. I watch my reputation number drop with each post. Let's see how far negative that sucker goes.

You got me. But there must be some trick to it since some folks have the reputation of rockstars, by someone's estimation at least.
