Arizona - Neither a Great Place To Visit or Live..
I mean, seriously. It's a fucking shit hole of a place. It's very hot and it's full of the dumbest legislation possible. Take for example the situation that Arizona banned funding Planned Parenthood altogether:
"This is a common sense law that tightens existing state regulations and closes loopholes in order to ensure that taxpayer dollars are not used to fund abortions, whether directly or indirectly," the governor said in a statement.
I mean, it shouldn't come to a surprise to anyone that Joe Arpaio is a complete douche bag. But it's not limited to him. Look at Jan Brewer, who is killing transplant patients in lieu of passing a one-cent tax.
And if you thought the mind behind the muscle was the only idiots, think again. How about the situation where the Arizona SWAT team defended shooting an Iraq vet 60 times.
But hey, it's not like anything is going to happen with that as prosecutor and Arpaio lapdog Andy Thomas disbarred- but not for trying to have a 16yo boy sent to prison for 90 years for showing a Playboy to his classmates... Then you have a women cooked to death in solar ovens. But hey, maybe you have some hope... just some glimmer there's the whole police cover ups of getting gun down by gunfire and driven around on hood of cop car like a dead deer.
If all those things don't scream WELCOME TO ARIZONA, I don't know what does.
To be honest, I really try not to keep up with what is going on in that shit hole back desert because it's just too much of a pain. I can't read anything about Arpaio anymore without going into fits of rage. It's really making me wonder if it's the worst state in the union.
Yeah, I actually said it.. and at this moment Florida is sighing and drawing its Katana, much like Reagan... (inside joke) But it's really a shame that Arizona is this shitty bad, as the natural beauty is plentiful and spectacular.
But hey, there's some strange news in all this. I read somewhere that Arizona was the 48th worst state to be imprisoned in, so it really makes you wonder how much shittier the prison system is that it is still a peg or two up higher than the worse.
I'm going to guess that it's probably Louisiana that is worse. You know, where black prisoners are literally put to work on plantations owned by white prison owners and wardens, yeah.. that shit still happens. And if by chance it's not, god, I don't even want to know how it could get any worse than that.
Either way, Arizona can go suck a fuck.
