I could give a rat's a$$ about that. It's the constant boasting that gets to be annoying and comes across as childish, along with the generalizations you like to throw around:

"and as far as Casual goes, i didnt see so many freakin casual people as i do in Albuquerque, we have way more professional jobs so calm your ass down."

"if tucson has one thats fine...we have a list load of **** tucson wish it had.."

How do you know what Tucson wants or has? How do you know what I can or cannot face?

I agree though; you have said enough.

I think you're both kinda childish. And wrong.
I'm not going to vote for either just to **** off both of you.

I really didn't think this was any of your concern, but I won't lose any sleep if you don't vote. Judging by a few of your other posts, I'm not sure you're a huge fan of the Southwest anyways.

The more you open your pie hole and accuse me of things when you know absolutely nothing about me, the more idiotic you look.

And yes, Ive been to Tucson several times, Im well aware of what the city looks like. If you dont like my OPINION, thats tough. And if you know my stance regarding Tucson, why did that particular post bother you? I have a feeling that youre just pissed at people stating they dislike Tucson and I pushed you over the edge. Anyways, get used to it, there's far more people who dislike Tucson than those that like it. I even have family in the Valley who avoid Tucson like its a grenade thats missing its pin. And Im not a troll, this is a public forum and my reply was directly related to the topic, therefore thats not trolling.

I haven't accused you of anything. I like you. I am just not fond of your elitist attitude toward some cities. There is a difference between dislike and disdain. You do not need to resell the idea that you are not fond of Tucson. You've overstated it. Let people make up there own minds.

I could care less about your opinions and more about your hasty generalizations about cities, including Tucson. I am a citizen of Tucson, and a member of the community, so when you throw out nasty remarks, it does pinch, but when you say you've been to Tucson several times, and toss around statements as if you feel you know the city better than the citizens who live here, and overgeneralize your statements about Tucson, it makes you look bad. Even though Chicago is my hometown, I would not claim to know the city any better than you because it's been years since I've lived there, things change, and there are a lot of things that you can miss on a daily basis if you're not around to witness them.

FYI - Many people I've spoken to, who live in the valley, have told me that they have never even been to Tucson. I've met many people from Chicago who love Tucson. I also know many people in Tucson who are happy that Tucson is not like Phoenix, nor Chicago in many ways (for better or for worse). Again, in regards to liking/disliking a city, you do not need to throw out statements as if you are speaking for the masses. I doubt that you've actually polled the world to see whether more people like/dislike Tucson.

Some people like that, some people dont.

ABQ has more soul, neater neighborhoods, just as nice scenery (if not better), better surrounding and nearby towns, more character. Tucson, to me, reminds me of a bigger version of Mesa, AZ... An old core with lots of shady areas, new areas that could be Anytown, AZ, etc. Tucson does have nice natural scenery and isnt too terribly far from Tombstone, which was pretty cool, but.... nah. Just not for me. Id choose ABQ in a heartbeat.
You clearly haven't been to Tucson before. We all know that you feel Arizona's sunsets aren't anything special from another thread. No one agrees with you. Sorry. Delusion has clearly over your thought process if you think a sunset in Tucson is the same as a sunset in Compton.

Contrary to your thinking, the vast majority of the Tucson basin is not full of run-down homes or tons of grafitti. There are plenty of very nice neighborhoods scattered throughout the city. Are there run down areas? Yes. Every city has run down areas. You come from the city that was home to THE most decrepit housing projects in the country, and is home to the west side and south side, parts of which make inner-city Detroit look nice, and you point the finger at Tucson for having run-down housing.

Tucson has shady areas, just as any city with 500,000 people would have. Do you think Albuquerque is free of shady people? Absolutely not. If you have been to both Tucson and Albuquerque like you claim, what encounters have you had with these "shady people" to convince you that Tucson is so much worse?

You clearly are sitting in front of your computer with your blue troll wig on. Take it off and get a clue.
