    Default THE BEST THINGS ABOUT LIFE IN ARIZONA - JUST BECAUSE

    THE BEST THINGS ABOUT LIFE IN ARIZONA


    I get it all the time from friends from the old life, and even family who still live behind the Iron Curtain in Kalifornya.


    "Arizoooooona....why do you live therrrrrrre?"


    Well its very simple...unless they are your friends, people leave you alone,..even the government. Everyone is armed so everyone is polite...knowing what the result will be otherwise.
    People wave with all five fingers in extension.


    I don't recall ever having seen nor heard of a pro-Obama rally nor an Anti-Trump one.


    I don't recall ever having seen nor heard of a Black Lives Matter, ANTIFA, or any other sort of counter culture, communist insurgent riot, statue dumping, or any such seditious activities here. And I have been blessed to live here...far away from such things since 2003.


    Within a 40 minute drive in any direction I can shoot a silenced machinegun that I have been carrying in my vehicle for the last six months, have a five star meal with the best wines and steaks, or kayak on a cold high mountain lake. I can smoke a cigar on a mountain top at dawn, shoot an animal in the afternoon, drive a gas-swilling German sports car at excessive speed (by sissy California standards), carry a big pistol on my belt anywhere I wish, drive around with a shotgun in my Audi, BBQ dead animals, lift heavy weights, and say whatthefuck I feel like saying without being afraid I will offend some soft, lotiony-handed, race-centric snowflake.


    America is already great...in Arizona.

    Ooh-rah. I chose Alaska for many of the same reasons. I occasionally second-guess my decision. The government is far too large here. Roughly one-quarter of the population works for the government. (We have a small population, several large military bases, and large blocks of federally-owned or -controlled land.) But we have very few gun laws. We have no income tax. We are geographically well-positioned for secession. Crime rates are extraordinarily low (despite lots of hype to the contrary). Traffic problems arise occasionally because of an errant moose, but are not a consistent problem. And the scenery can't be beat.

    I've gotta say: Oklahoma is a very red state, and a very free one. Not many mountains, though.
    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

    "War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature, and has no chance of being free unless made or kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."

    Well....you do have bears which will devour the odd Antifa should one wander into the forbidden lands. An Antifa can be mere bone marrow in a few hours with a feasting bear. The best we can do unless we choose to climb up to higher elevations are the herds of javelinas and coyote and wolf...they take a bit longer on such things.

    My wife and I always wanted to retire in Sedona.... I realize there's some liberal weirdos there due to the vortices, but it's very beautiful there.

    The older I get, more I want solitude and peace... I guess that's pretty normal. Hopefully my 30s will wrap up with a windfall with my latest deal and we can think about other places to raise our daughter.

    they're more like hippy earth mother types. The one thing I will say about Sedona is that they roll up the streets at about 2100. There was only 1 place open after then the last time I was up there so night life is almost nonexistent
