Is there something in the water in Arizona?

Latest stupidity:

The same woman -- Republican Sen. Judy Burges, R-Hateful Old People (aka Sun City West) -- who sponsored Arizona's notorious birther law is back this session with SB 1403, a bill that would prevent Arizona from participating in any kind of legislation that would support the eeeeevil UN "Agenda 21" plan to destroy America through environmental laws.

“I appear before you to address a United Nations program that is designed to change our way of life, our heritage and our liberties as outlined and protected by our most precious Constitution,” she announced. “I testify to you against the seductive evils contained in the United Nations’ agenda for the 21st Century and more easily stated, Agenda 21.”

3. I think it's a little ageist and hateful to call me and my many neighbors

in Sun City West "Hateful Old People". But I'm not hurt. I am old, but not hateful. And I was young and thoughtless too, once.

5. Thank you. I didn't even mention that if not for the huge

percentage of SCW residents who have been and are WWII vets, including Mr Marybourg, the OP probably would have been posting in German (if alive at all). These are people who were called upon to and performed heroic feats most of us cannot even imagine. Then they came home and quietly got on with their lives. Now in old age they're called hateful old people by someone who probably doesn't have a clue.

6. Don't paint Arizona with a broad red brush.

I'm beginning my third year here in Tucson after spending most of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area. I'm so far left on most things that my family nickname is comrade. It was not without some trepidation that I moved here after hearing only of Dick Cheney in drag, Jan Brewer, Ayatollah Joe Arpio, the Depends using idiot John, Snow Snookie Mc cain, etc. We came to help take care of my 90 yo mother in law after I retired. My 90 yo mother in law who I took to the polls and who insisted on voting a straight,Democratic, ticket.

I don't know any teabaggers here. I don't know any Republicans here. Obama bumper stickers in Tucson outnumber NoBama stickers by about 10 to 1. In Sedona, you can get your aura photographed. I don't think you can even get that done on Haight Street in S.F. 4th Street in Tucson ain't Haight Street in the 60's exactly, you can't buy a kilo of weed for $80.00 but it's pretty close.

Arizona is not what it appears to be in the MSM.

9. I was in the Phoenix airport in 2007

It had a fair amount of "hippie - new age" merchandise.
I was surprised.

10. Nice try, but those of us that have lived there know you are intentionally skewing

 

this as much as possible. Tucson, part of Flagstaff, and a few specks in Phoenix Tempe (each of these places is a college town) constitute 99% of Zonies with even a tenuous grasp of liberalism.

Arizona is exactly what it appears to be in the media and far worse.

14. +1

If these people that are painting such a wide stroke want bad, go to Missouri. Even better, go to the SW portion. Since I have come here to Tucson, I have found way more liberals than back in Missouri.

20. Considering that my entire family still lives there,

 

Cave Creek, Scottsdale, & west side Phoenix, I don't think so.

The state did make some party gains in the last election, but even there the Democratic reps generally are far from what any honest person could call liberal. Being somewhat less racist and/or reactionary while still promoting business above all is not going to result in a grand awakening.

I loved that Sinema got in at the federal level, she should be great fun to watch. Hope she gets to stay.

12. I lived in Tucson and

had a long-distance relationship with a woman in Flagstaff. Those two cities are indeed extremely liberal and vote Democratic.

Phoenix, which is larger in population than both those cities combined, is solidly conservative & Republican (despite a dab of blue around ASU) as are the rural areas near Prescott and along CA & NV border.

I have now lived in Phoenix since 1999, and on whole, having lived here in Arizona in total for 21 years, I have indeed seen that it has gotten very bad. The Tea Party has made this state the nightmare that it most definitely is as portrayed on the MSM. You are lucky to live where you do and how you do. But do not be poor, of a minority race, a man or woman in need of medicaid, etc., or you will see just how sick this state and the majority of its population has truly become.

Just because I and my love are not 'bad' does not mean that I do not see how clearly the state on the whole has become that 'bad'. The broad brush here is quite close to the truth, and that is why I am making plans to leave as soon as I can.

13. Arizona is no where near as bad as Missouri.

That place makes Arizona look like Liberal Central!

15. Wow that is hard to believe

but these days, the swash of red is becoming nauseating.

I have not yet visited Missouri but I will be doing so this year to attend a Zen retreat in Kansas City.

16. Stay very close to KC!

It is the more liberal area of the state. Stay close to there and St. Louis, that is your best bet when you are Dem or Liberal is Missouri.

You head to the southern ( especially SW), keep your political and, in some places, morels to yourself! There are many places that you will find yourself feeling as if you are getting ran out of town.

18. Thanks for the advice.

I will be driving as I can't fly due to my health. So, I will in the city for sure.

Are you in Tucson? If so, yes, it is on the whole much more progressive & liberal. Even when I was a Republican back in the 1990's, I much preferred it to Phoenix & still do. Phoenix has pockets for sure, but it is pervasively tea party conservative.

Sad really as Arizona is a physically beautiful state.

17. From a long long long time Tucson resident (123 days) please note


AZ has 6 Democratic Congressman and 5 Republicans.

The Reublicans elected their Republican Senator 49% to 46%

With changing demographics AZ will be a purple state from now on, especially if immigration reform goes thru.

19. Grant that is true on the national level

but on the state level, you know as well as I that Republicans dominate the legislature, the state policies are decidedly Tea Party Libertarian Randian conservative, and have been for some time now. I just don't see that changing any time soon even with an immigration reform in the near future.
