Due to budget cuts, the US decides it would be best to rid itself of a state. Which would you choose to vote off?

It'll become a message of hope, as Kansas quickly devolves into a third world country. Saying, "It looks like we're not in Kansas anymore, Toto." will be synonymous with entering into a better realm of living.

We got something going here. We should vote out California as a whole. We would be a top 10 economy in the world. We would monopolize the Pacific Coastline and tax all goods moving through our state. We could up the price on all the food and wine we sell to the rest of the world. We'd make bank. We'd be like Dubai.

10-20-2008, 03:44 PM
California usually ranks in the lower 30s, but I'm not denying our state has intelligence problems. However, California's poor testing scores mainly come from the fact that there are a high percentage of illegals/non-English speakers here. How do you expect their kids to do well in school/on tests when English isn't spoken---or sometimes, even ALLOWED---in homes?

(And trust me. I work in the LAUSD. I know. It's really sad when some cholo dad tells you he doesn't "give a fuck" if his 8 year-old son does his homework and would rather have him working with him during day than going to school.)

A very close second would be Arizona - the weather here sucks, pay is the lowest in the country, sales tax is higher than my grandpa's britches, and we are constantly battling with one of the southern states for dumbest in the nation. We have to offer...a huge hole in the ground and lots of desert that is uncomfortable to live in 90% of the year. Yeah, I think I'll change my vote from Florida to Arizona after some thought.

Having lived in Arizona for the better part of 25 years, New Mexico has always been like a really trashy neighbor, the one that would get drunk and pass out in his overgrown front yard. With the exception of indigenous culture (which now features blackout drinking), some art, and I guess the copper mines, there doesn't seem to be a whole lot going on there. Which seems strange, considering how fucking big the state is.

I say get rid of it.

No wai. I veto any votes for NM simply because Sante Fe has a wicked Opera House...

I've driven from coast to coast, and from Canada to Mexico. No state has less to offer than Oklahoma. Stifling heat and humidity, combined with tornados in the summer. Sleet, snow and ice storms in the winter. Zero culture (unless you count the rez). Also, home to white supremicist groups. The only good thing from OK is the Flaming Lips.

Utah will not be voted out for the following reasons: Park City, Salt Lake City (very diverse city in general, would fit in almost any state), very beautiful scenery (drove though there listening to Sigur Ros Takk and it fit the landscape), all the above reasons are highly valid as well. And Radiohead played the state in 2003 so that clinches it.

You are welcome in Arizona. We are a red state that desperately needs to be blue. We have a democratic governor and we voted Clinton in 1996 before I lived here. We are a bit slow and stuck in our ways though. We don't embrace our culture. We generally think all mexicans are illegals and we have people down near the boarder armed and ready to fire on brown people. We were also the last state to get martin luther king day, that angers people, not that we finally got it, the fact that we do have it.

So as you can see, we need a lot of help in this state. The more democrats the better. This is me trying to sell you on our beuatiful state.

The plus side.

On any given weekend you can go to Mexico, L.A., San Diego or Las Vegas. During the boiling summers you can also retreat to flagstaff, it's only 2 hours north and you can also find snow there in the winter for skiing and snowboarding.

Also, come Coachella time it's only a 3.5 hour drive.

That's all I got so far. Oh and you can find some culture in Tucson, just not phoenix.

just curious why the people of Utah are so horrible? I've been there about 30 times in my life, and most of them have been nothing but overly friendly

plus, the natural scenery is more than many states have even if you were to combine a few of them

The more I read this, I might have to agree with the New Mexico idea. When you're driving east on I-10 you see signs that point out Tucson - XX Miles and then the next city on the sign is El Paso. Apparently the national government didn't even see fit to put any of New Mexico's cities on the road signs unless you were actually in New Mexico. White Sands is pretty cool, but since I've only been there once I don't really have too much attachment to it. I can't really think of anything special off the top of my head that they have to offer outside of that.

And Faxman, don't mislead people - Coachella is about a 7 hour drive (not 3.5) for some in AZ and Tucson only pretends to have culture. The drive length is nicer than a vast majority of the states though. Also, Phoenix has way nicer downtown areas than Tucson's "we haven't got the slightest clue how to renovate or preserve buildings/streets" downtown that doubles as a junk yard.

no kidding, renovating downtown tucson would be nice. Maybe after the whole 4th ave thing street thing is done something will happen, or is it done? I'm not sure, I moved August 1st but miss it a lot. I mostly miss the desert and the stars though.... and some friends... and the sunsets... and going out to the desert in the middle of the night trippin on shrooms... and mt lemmon...
