After Nevada agreed to join, one national guard soldier was quoted as saying: "patrolling the Mojave Desert almost makes you wish for a nuclear winter."

I think we're going to have to have a *ahem* "conversation with Utah about this.

I'm not sure how well having Colorado as an exclave would work out. Of course I'm in one of the loyalist rump states so I'll be envying the dead.
 
2020-04-27 2:34:39 PM  
Colorado, too! Finally.

The President decided not to lead. He can now follow, or get the hell out of the way.

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak said on Twitter that "our states will only be effective when working together against" the coronavirus, citing the need to share information

I think all the states should get together and do this.  We can have one person lead it all, and elect and new one every 4 years or so.

I am honestly surprised it took Governor Sisolak this long to officially throw in with California et al. For one thing, a huge amount of our tourism dollars come from California, so our fates are tied together anyway. No tourists, no casino money, no reason to open the casinos; they'll lose money being open without enough tourists.

I hate to be the one to tell you, but the head of your state GOP just suggested that plague rat demonstrators disguise themselves as medical personnel, and infiltrate the ranks of any medical personnel who counter-demonstrate against them. It's not going to go well, there, I fear.

Hey look, two states that no one really gives a shiat about going to anymore are really really interested in opening up again. One because their only source of income is casinos, and they won't be opening up again regardless of what the government says. And the other's only source of income is skiing... and we're getting into May.

I'm pretty sure that both states' weed dispensaries are considered essential, so I don't think that's the reasoning behind it. So... you got me.
 
2020-04-27 2:46:25 PM  
If Utah and Arizona want any part of that sweet Pac12 money, they will join also.
 
2020-04-27 2:46:32 PM  
That's cool. We need a buffer zone between Pacifica and the Remaining States of America.

Welcome Nevada!  You will be the other destination spot (outside Hawaii) for Pacificanders.  We welcome your gambling and legalized whoring.


Arizona can only come along if they ditch about a third of their citizens who are bat shiat crazy.

Colorado has all kinds of things you can do in the summer in the mountains too.  It's a good thing you're the only moron that doesn't know that.

I'd like to say that was satirical, but honestly I just read the article wrong. Though to be fair calling it a 'reopening alliance' doesn't really give the right message either. But yeah, read it wrong, my bad. Disregard.

'The growing alliance reflects the fact that governors, rather than the federal government, are making the critical decisions about when to reopen their states' slumbering economies. All five of the Western group's governors are Democrats, and all have said they will hew to science first.'

It's going to be interesting watching Nevada's governor and Las Vegas' mayor have it out concerning when things can open again. Thankfully, Las Vegas' mayor is a stone cold moron.

How about no. That's how we got into this mess to begin with. Maybe, if you can guarantee minimal influence from big money or 24 hour news cycles..

Unlike evangelicals, at least Mormons have the ability to separate magic from science.

Can you name one faction in Fallout (or Elder Scrolls for that matter) that are the 'Good Guys'? I'm talking straight up, morally uncompruncompromised 'Good Guys' without some horrific agenda or asshole in charge  that you only find out about when you're halfway through that Faction's quest line?

Everyone's a baddie in Bethesda games; some are just less bad than others.

BizarreMan: Is this where Arizona, Utah, Idaho, and Montana join together in a suicide pact?


The first three, maybe, but Montana is a little more connected to reality, I think.

//And hell, sometimes the Mormons can be sensible about things, and they certainly aren't Shiatgibbon fans.
