  •  ...Arizona is a place I'll never go to again... (9+ / 0-)

    ...after all the shit laws and attitudes they've thrust to the forefront, I refuse to give the state of Arizona one dime. I still can't believe they didn't cancel the Baseball All Star game there a few years back.

    I can understand why Julie Gulden left Arizona and moved back to cold Wisconsin. She is still pissed they didn't count her vote in the last national election...

        Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.

        ...damn. They won't miss me at all. The folks I pay for services in Utah, New Mexico and Colorado however, will be glad I did...
