Oregon’s great!

Lived in Tempe for almost 10-years. There are a lot of things I miss about Arizona, my friends mostly.

Oregon does have some down sides too, politics mostly.

ASU has got some fine specimens of sammich makers! Never paid any attention to MCC, but when I worked in Snottsdale and needed to travel south I would intentionally save some time to waste around ASU to watch the round bobbers bouncing around.

That's one of the best AZ things: skimpy clothing. Well, great on some people, anyway. Nothing worse than a really fat woman buttering herself up and plopping into a tank top where her fat roll spills out like a scene from the Blob.

Nothing against fat or skinny people, but a little common sense goes a long way in the way one dresses. What they think is sexy is gross - like me wearing a thong to the pool. Even wearing shorts I get people asking me to take the batteries out of my legs to stop blinding them

Yes... but we have lots of illegals.

ETA: I still love it here. But then again.... any where is better than living in CA. <shudders>

Born, raised, and will die here. Hell, I've only lived in two zip codes my whole life, both in Mesa.

And a liberal. Or are the two the same? In that case, pack two out and don't let the door hit ya where the good Lord split ya.

I love this state. Don't like it, leaving is but 3 bucks a gallon away. Call me and I'll mail you a check for the gas

I love AZ but HATE the valley.

In 4 years (when the GF's daughter gets out of HS) we are outta here faster than you can say "OUTTA HERE".

Flagstaff or points in that vicinity, here we come!

I'll be back in 3yrs and 5mos after my time in the grunts is up. I'm in Camp Pendleton, CA right now trying to become something a little more highspeed than a regular rifleman.

fuck man, what part of AZ do YOU live in?? 2 weeks ago, my draw looked like the Colorado River! washed the damn bank back about 25 feet on one side and swept it away!

Nevada is better. We don't have half the off limit places AZ has. I don't have to leave my weapon in the car to have dinner. If I see a no gun sign in a store, I think to myself, "fuck off". I love to visit AZ, but I wish that I could carry in Red Lobster, Pizza Hut, etc...

I like it here too.

For those that don't like it here. GO, what is keeping you?
