No, no, no. The OP is absolutely right. Arizona is a HORRIBLE place. In addition to all those nasty things he pointed out the whole state is infested with rattlesnakes and scorpions, and refugees from Washington and California.

Not only that, we have Indians! WILD Indians! Have you been to an Indian casino? If that's not a wild time I don't know what is."

Not only that but we have dust storms that blot out the sun for days, which is ok since nothing grows here but cactus anyway. And then when it does rain the dust turns it to mud. Yes, we have mud rain!

And not only do Arizonans carry GUNS! But switchblade knives are legal here, and so are MACHINE GUNS! Yes, it's true, the Colorado River runs red with the blood of the millions who are gunned down in our streets everyday. It's all kept under wraps by the corrupt government.

Not only that but the very same govt STEALS our local road money to squander on frivilous stuff like education. As a result you need a 4x4 truck to get around. Don't forget the gun rack to carry your AR15!

Not only that but the whole north part of the state is cut off from the rest of the country by a giant hole in the ground. They really ought to fill it in because it is quite dangerous, every year several people fall off the edge and get killed. Where is OSHA when you need em?

Then there is Sedona, it's full of kooks looking for crystal, or something.

Speaking of which, then there is our hero, Sheriff Joe! He has singlehandedly stopped crime statewide. I mean who wants to wear pink underware in jail?

At least all the illegal aliens left.

Then there is Lake Havasu, it's full of young people. Young people on boats. Young people on boats in bathing suits, drinking and having a good time. How dare they!

And finally, I apologize to the country on behalf of all Arizona for having inflicted John McCain upon you for all these years. And for Barry Goldwater.

So with that if you are still considering moving to this awful place...

Welcome to Arizona, buy a gun!
Now we're cookin with gas!

It's so hot you can't leave the house for decades at a time, I heard one time an entire person just vaporized when they tried to walk outside to get the mail, IN JANUARY!

Sometimes I just wonder about the place, how does anyone live here?

Well we just came back from visiting Oregon and I would not trade my life in AZ for a single thing in downtown Portland. Well, maybe the donuts. Traffic here is insane and the drivers are mostly impaired by the way they drive. Too many drunk driving accidents with fatalities. The mayor is making pets out of the homeless and it has become a huge and growing problem. The city morons allow for homeless camping 200 feet from elementary school..yikes. Taxes are always increasing because the powers that be can't seem to solve every little problem here without raising them. Housing costs are through the roof due to increasing property taxes and then there are the HOA fees....Scenery is beautiful outside the city but the costs are about the same. So, go ahead and run down AZ and yes, I think Phoenix is one of the ugliest cities on the planet, but the cost of living here is not so bad and the winters are without ice and snow.

Speaking of Washington transplants, I do remember having a brief conversation with somebody who was just that when I was unlocking my bike from a gym off of Camelback. I thought it was just random, passing through. But then I read this and also realize someone I used to work with from Washington again, is based out of Yuma, this is more than coincidence.

But yeah, sooner or later, everybody's going to get tired of clouds and/or getting brutalized to death by snow.
