"Arizona has the second highest skin cancer rate in the world."
No kidding? Do you think it might be the fact that we're in a desert?!?May 27, 2011
I wonder if they have given any thought to the enormous costs in starting a new state? Here a some examples: Creating and replacing vehicle license plates. Creating and replacing driver licenses. Creating and replacing business licenses. Creating and funding state government, i.e. governor, legislature, motor vehicle department, state police, creating counties and county governments, etc. What would happen to all of the equipment that belongs to the State of Arizona? Would they keep it and say "To hell with you Arizona, it belongs to us now," or would they send it back and buy new equipment? This list is VERY short of what would be necessary. Where would they get the necessary funding? From the federal government? By raising taxes? A state lottery system? While those few I just mentioned will get them some funding eventually, they will need an enormous amount of funding just to get started. You can't have Arizona license plates and driver licenses for people who do not live in Arizona. I have two ideas for them. Either vote in new elected officials, or move to a more liberal state. If Pima county does become a new state, I predict that they will come crawling back within three years.Mar 14, 2011
