A state in the union that wants to show everybody up when it comes to being backwards.
Arizona was the last state in the union to ratify a Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. The politicians and many of it's people (but not all) said "no!" to an MLK holiday long after every other state had already decided to honor Dr. King. Black athletes and leaders boycotted and the state eventually begrudgingly gave in.
Now, Arizona is once again trying to outdo all the other states and trying to reclaim its crown as the most intolerant, racist, and ass-backwards state by having recently passed SB1070--an unconstitutional, anti-immigrant, anti civil rights, xenophobic law that allows the police to racial profile ANYONE they see fit and it also allows law enforcement to arrest anyone that cannot produce documents that prove their residency/citizenship on the spot. This law has been called the most racist law since the Jim Crow laws of in the deep South. Way to go, Arizona!! You are the U.S. CHAMPION when it comes to staying way behind the rest of the country!!
Man: This SB1070 law is harsh and, ultimately, the police can stop and harass ANYONE they feel like and all they have to say is that they suspected someone of being in the U.S. illegally.
Woman: Sounds like Gestapo tactics to me and we are losing more of our freedoms. Time to boycott Arizona!
Man: That's what I'm saying. I'm boycotting anything from AZ, starting with the Diamondbacks.
Arizona - It's the devil's playgroundmore...
The devil wanted a place on earth, sort of a summer home, a place to spend his vacation, whenever he wanted to roam.
So he picked out Arizona, a place both wretched and rough, where the climate was to his liking, and the cowboys hardened and tough.
He dried up the lakes in the valley, then burned and scorched it all, He dried up the streams in the canyons, and ordered no rain to fall.
Then over this barren desert, he transplanted shrubs from Hell, the cactus thistle and prickly pear, the climate suited them well.
Now the home was much to his liking, but animal life he had none, so he created crawling creatures, that all mankind would shun.
First he made the rattlesnake, with its forked poisonous tongue, taught it to strike and rattle, and how to shallow its young.
Then he made scorpions and lizards, and the ugly old horned toad, he placed spiders of every description, under the rocks by the side of the road.
Then he ordered the sun to shine hotter, hotter and hotter still, until even the cactus wilted, and the old horned toads looked ill.
Then he gazed on his earthly kingdom, as any creator would, he chuckled a little, rolled up his sleeves, and admitted it was good.
T'was summer now and Satan, lay by a prickly pear to rest, the sweat rolled off his sweaty brow, so he took off his coat and vest.
"By golly", he finally panted, "I did my job to well, I'm going back ...

Word used to signify defiance. This is seen in the sudden popularity of products with the word 'Arizona' on them. Having nothing to do with immigration necessarily, just opposition to federal government interference. This is used synonymously with 'resistance' and 'states rights'. To be seen with Arizona means you stand with anyone who believes the federal government has become too powerful.
First man to another man wearing 'Arizona' T-shirt.
What do you think of president Obama and Congress?
2nd man - "I like Arizona" "Nuff said"
First man nods.
The Grand Canyon State. Arizona lies in the southwest region of the U.S., in the middle of the Sonoran Desert. As a result, Arizona is known for its oppressive summer heat, dryness and strong sunshine. Arizona is also home to the Grand Canyon and the most golf courses and resorts of pretty much anywhere else. Phoenix is the capital and largest city, and 5th largest city in the US. About 6-million-plus people live in this already overpopulated state--most of whom need to move back where they came from--as the influx has hurt the quality of life.
Arizona is known for the the desert, cactus, heat, sunshine, golf, resorts and migrant labor.
A strain of hydroponic marijuana. Sometimes confused with kush because of the red veins in it. Much cheaper than most strains of equal potency, so it is often chopped and mixed with ditch weed, to give the crappy weed the appearance of actual smokable stuff.
Ironically, Arizona is more popular in California than Arizona.
Ay roll dat AZ up bruh, I'm outta kush.
My bad mann, Im outta Arizona. All I got is chronic.
The best state in the country to live in if you want to avoid natural disasters and horrible weather. There are parts of the state where it doesn't go above 100 in the summer and it doesn't go below 20 in the winter. The only bad weather you have to worry about is a bad thunderstorm with strong wind. There are no earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes etc...
California has earthquakes. The midwest has floods and massive tornados. The southeastern states have hurricanes. The midwest, northwest, and northeastern states are below freezing all winter long. Many have summers with 75-90% muggy and oppressive humidity. Arizona has great weather all year round and is not prone to any type of natural disaster.
