Poll: Will you vacation in Arizona this Summer?
Conservative Examiner ^ | 4-29-10 | Robert Moon

Posted on 04/29/2010 5:28:15 AM PDT by aquapub

Arizona is under attack. Absurd left-wing hysterics are throwing violent, half-witted tantrums day-and-night over the state's "controversial" new law requiring people to endure the tragedy of identifying themselves.

Will you be vacationing in Arizona this Summer?

* Yes 77.78% (14 votes)
* No 0.00% (0 votes)
* Maybe 22.22% (4 votes)

Small numbers but in favor of law.

I would have thought about it if I lived closer to AZ, but the Obama economy has got me down and we could not afford the flight for the entire family.

I will say that previously I had not even considered such an option; I have heard that the state is overrun with criminals, coyotes and drug gangs.

Maybe in the fall?

I will say that if anyone has genuinely set up a site by which money can be collected to send criminals, coyotes and drug gangs to San Francisco, that I would like to make a contribution.

Hell, I’ll drive to Gila Bend a couple of times this summer and stay a few days just to show the Zonies how much I appreciate their fortitude. It’s barely a half a days drive from my house.

I don’t even think people from Arizona vacation in Arizona during the summer.

The question is, how many retirees will sell and move back to New Jersey and New York to protest the state enforcing immigration law? LOL!

Grand Canyon is coolish year round. Visit Flagstaff instead of Tucson if you’re a northerner and can’t stand the heat.

As a year-long resident of Arizona and one who lives off the grid (no electric appliances like air conditioning) I can testify that wimps who avoid the Grand Canyon State in the summer are, in fact, wimps. Heck, we don’t ever use the ac in our automobile. Harry Truman was right, if you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen. Just gives the rest of us that much more ‘personal space’.

First of all, I FULLY support Arizona in her fight for sovereignty, and in its standing up for all Americans in stemming the Third World invasion!!!

However, it’s dumb to vacation in Arizona in the summer, because its so HOT!!!! That goes double for late July through early September, the monsoon season, when it’s HUMID as well!!!!

The exception is if you go to a convention or meeting, all in air-conditioned facilities. But then you don’t really see Arizona.

Try to go in May. It will be hot (with cooler nights), but you’ll have the wonderful, beautiful cactus flowers (in Southern Arizona)—not to be missed!!!! Or go to Northern Arizona—see the Grand Canyon—not to be missed!!!! It’s cooler in most of the north.

Check out Arizona travel websites.

You might also book a vacation for the fall or winter now.

I posted my thoughts several years ago. Admin took them down.

1. Select a border state. Arizona.

2. Using regular army troops secure the entire state border.

3. Select one country on the border. Using INS begin the following:

4. Announce a 24 grace period for all illegal aliens to leave the country.

5. Establish Command and Fire positions on the border. Announce that after the initial 24 hour grace period lapses any illegal alien entering the United States will be shot attempting to cross the border. 6. Round up all illegal alien males within the county.

7. Confiscate all their money, properties (homes cars etc.), equities, businesses of same. All proceeds go to State.

8. Set up impromptu courts at border crossings and deport all illegal males within 24 hours of capture.

9. Any American citizen harboring, hiding, aiding or abetting an illegal to remain in the USA will be arrested and convicted of a felony punishable by a 10 year prison sentence. No parole.

10.Caution Mexico that any violence against American companies in Mexico or American citizen's in Mexico will be considered an act of war and will initiate armed intervention.

You got that right. And how about that drive through Salt River Canyon. There is nothing in the world to match it. That, and the overlook at the top of the Rim between Payson and Heber. Wow.

You can get a 4-star resort there for $35 a night. Get your golf in early in the morning, watch the D-Backs (who are being boycotted too) in air conditioned comfort at night.

The wife and I love to visit Arizona. We’ve been there three times in the last seven years. More trips planned.

Phhht. I love AZ in July and August and Minnesota in January and February.

Avoid the crowds that way.

My favorite is the little signs all over the place that warn you not to enter the arroyos when they're flooded. Not only are you likely to be swept away, but they'll ticket you afterward for being an idiot.

The high desert is beautiful in the summer. Come to the North Rim and stop in Fredonia! We need the business down here.

We are....late May and beginning of June we are taking the kids to the southwest. Some of those days will be in AZ. We are going to the parks (Mesa Verde, Canyon de Chelly, Bryce, Zion, ARches, and of course the Grand Canyon. We will also be taking a scenic train ride near Flaggstaff. Timing couldn’t have been better. AS we were planning this trip we didn’t know we would also be able to show support for a state finally standing up to chaos.

Arizona in the summer? I wouldn’t go to Las Vegas in the summer either. I was stationed in the southern California desert and I don’t like the heat, dust, etc. Sure, there are forest and mountain areas as well but I can go to Yellowstone and get that with a lot more comfortable climate. Desert heat is not for me. If I could take time during the fall/winter I would definitely consider Arizona.

The mountains of Arizona are cooler during the summer months and very beautiful. Gorgeous evenings, beautiful sunsets...there is Flagstaff, Sedona, Jerome, The White Mountain region, or maybe the canyon country with a houseboat on Lake Powell.

Yup! I remember about the arroyos. I used to love to explore them (NOT during flash-flood time, however).

They’ve knuckled under to the Yankees in Tucson by calling arroyos “washes”. Now that it’s obvious that many Yankees are against Arizonans, perhaps they can change that word back to “arroyo”!

In August, many Arizonans vacation in the San Diego area, where they are known as “Zonies”. I hope that Arizonans will continue to vacation in San Diego this year, and stand tall if Californian liberals insult them. There are conservatives in Southern California, too, as well as more liberal folks who are fed up with the Third World invasion and with the muslim would-be dictator obama.

Heck, around Tucson, they were calling them "washes" when I was there back in the early 90s. I didn't start using "arroyo" until I moved to New Mexico in '05. I'm an Idaho boy by birth, and grew up hearing and using "gully-washer" for a summer thunderstorm that brings on the flash floods. So they were gullies to me.

That's totally, completely, utterly wrong! I moved here to Scottsdale after living in San Francisco and Las Vegas, and the apparent crime levels in the Phoenix area are just tiny compared to those places. Parts of Phoenix are pretty rough, but it's laid out more like an East Coast city - you can just avoid those neighborhoods - rather than a place like Los Angeles or Las Vegas where the bad neighborhoods are scattered everywhere.

Arizona feels like California forty years ago - American in every way. It's a great place to vacation, even in the summer.

OK come up with me hunting in 5° weather before you start to pass along the “w” word... I have both northern and southern European ancestry but my northern ancestry takes over where weather is concerned....When working hard outdoors I am down to tee shirts and sometimes shorts in 30° weather and I challenge you to a cold weather contest....stop by in central NY, to my hunting camp, this February and we will hang out outside and down a couple of ice cold beers...

flew by light,sight seeing plane to the south rim on a side jaunt on a trip to Vegas in ‘05....it was November and pleasantly warm....though it had been cooler a day or so before we got there....spent a year mostly in Tucson, in 1975 and traveled up to Flagstaff a few times, along with other places on the Mogollon Rim....You can have Tucson and Phoenix in the Summer, but the winters are glorious in the Sonoran Desert...Saguaro Natl park, the Catalinas..the Santo Rita's.....gorgeous.
