Re: “Told You So: Gawker Names Arizona Worst State

HEADLINE; ranked worst website by Tucson weekly! was recently ranked worst website by Tucson weekly for arbitrarily and erroneously ranking states on a one to fifty, best to worst scale. The extraordinarily dim-witted evaluators at the clueless website failed during the ranking process, to notice that Arizona ranks 2nd in population growth as a result of in-migration from other states in the union. An obvious sign of favorable living conditions and a strong contrast in comparison to Gawker favorites like the state of New York, that rank extraordinarily high in population loss. "We're not talking about births and deaths here. People are leaving other states like New York, to come to Arizona" according to Frank Munoz, a Tucson businessman and New York refugee. "People vote with their feet, there's a reason Arizona has grown, while other states have lost population. I just can't believe the rocket scientists and mathematicians at Gawker can't figure it out. I feel sorry for them. I always feel sorry for people who can't grasp the simplest of concepts. Munoz, like other in-migrants to Arizona enjoys a low cost of living to income ratio, a deal made even sweeter by some of the lowest property taxes in the country. "It was hard living in California" says Tina Flores, an engineer. "I make 6 figures but I could never afford a house in the Palo Alto area. I tried renting outside the city but the traffic congestion and tolls for crossing the bridges made the hour and a half commute intolerable" Jeri Anderson, a retired electrician from Chicago says "the people at Gawker must not be aware of the incredible beauty of Arizona. I took my wife for a drive up to Jerome and through Oak Creek Canyon, it's the most beautiful place on Earth. Why did they say there's no water? Do those Gawker jack-asses know where the mighty Colorado River flows? Through Arizona" Others believe that Gawkers motivations are steeped more in ignorance and fear of people who dance to the beat of their own drum. Andy Begay, a member of the Navajo Nation, the largest native American reservation in the country, located in the north east part of Arizona say's he's never met anyone from "I make a living out here, making ceremonial drums, I meet artists, historians, poet's-people from every where, they come to buy my drums and celebrate our proud Native American history. I don't think anyone from Gawker has ever been here. This is where the Navajo code talkers are from. We're proud of that. What have those goof balls at Gawker ever done for anyone?"
