I suggest you visit in August...and plan plenty of outdoor activities.

Actually, if I did visit Arizona, it would probably be in the month of August, so I could watch the Southwest Monsoon thunderstorms in all their glory.

I think this person was encouraging you to get heat stroke. Nice, huh?

Really?

Which white?

Italian? Spanish? German? French? English? Irish? Swiss? Scandinavian? Icelandic? Canadian? Russian? Eastern European? Australian? New Zealanders? Basque?

Since you like to lump all White people together, in order to fight this takeover, I need to know exactly which white folks are planning to usurp Arizona from all the people of color--because of course, white is not a color...it's a non-color....colorless...transparent.....

Illegal aliens cost the state more money than any boycott. Most illegals are working for slave wages and can't make ends meet. We are paying for their lack of car insurance and health insurance. We pay for their children's health and welfare. In addition to that we deal with their gangs, drugs and ID theft. As a tax payer, I don't want to financially support people who don't belong in my country.

I am glad AZ has adopted that approach.

I hope more states will follow.
