Just designate red states as one big house of worship:  no lockdown liberals.
Covid is fake news, the SCOTUS just said so.

Arizona is a shiat hole state where everything is hot and flat and racist. It's just the West Coast version of Florida where all the old people go to cook themselves in the sun before they die.

These ad campaigns are designed for next summer.  Now is when people plan for that.  It doesn't mean come tomorrow.  Relax.

Don't do it.
When you want to go to it.
Relax, don't do it.

Thanks for the ear worm.

Ah, summer in Arizona.  Where your chances of spontaneous combustion more than double on arrival.

My sister is flying her daughter to Arizona to visit her sister in law (sister's husband's sister). And she wonders why I'm not there today for Thanksgiving.

I grew up there. We would cry when told to go outside and play in the summertime, because it actually hurt. You get squirt in the face from a super soaker that's been laying in the sun all afternoon, and you feel like the guy getting acid blasted in RoboCop.

This isn't about Arizona specifically, or even tourism.  Spend an hour watching anything with commercials and you'll find the marketing machine cranked up, trying their best to get people out and doing things.  There aren't many that even mention the pandemic/mask wearing anymore, AT&T and Domino's pizza being the only two I can think of offhand.

We got those ads in Missouri.

It's one thing to run them in the summer. But no one in their right mind is going to vacation in South Dakota in November.

The fact the stock footage they used is all from the summer is proof of that.

You thinking of Texas?  Because most of Arizona is hills and mountains outside of Phoenix.

I was very fortunate in the last few years to see it in winter with snow.  I absolutely recommend it, farking amazing.  That whole part of the state, in fact.

Y'know, we DID elect Joe Biden this year...AND we sent two Democrat senators to Washington. Oh...AND recreational marijuana is now legal, along with many minor drug offenses expunged.

So...like...whatever man.

Look at the person who has absolutely no clue what the fark they are talking about...

(But the Governor is a complete dumbass so I'll give you that)

You'd think that would be obvious to people. Phoenix is literally called "The Valley of the Sun".

Valleys are defined by the fact that they're surrounded by mountains.

That old bastard got the boot years ago.

His heir-apparent also lost his bid for the office this year.

Maricopa county is finally breaking free of all the old white retirees in Sun City.

/now if only we can do the same in Yavapai

Yeah between the heat and all the people who will be immunized by then, covid will probaly be low risk.  Well immunized, or already caught it.

When the f*c|< did we invent this thing called a "case?" It's utterly pointless to track this shiat. It's a way for the doomer paranoia fetishists to save face after nowhere near the number of people they predicted ended up dying. Now I'm supposed to give a shiat that more people than ever are... spending a couple of days coughing in Arizona? Just fark off... You lost this fight. The public does. Not. Care.

What "fight" was lost?  Can you explain the "fight" that you imagine is taking place?   Can you show us a list of the people who are "fighting"?   Does that list happen to include every single person alive in the world who doesn't do what Donald Trump says, along with your ex-wives and everyone who has ever made you feel small and insignificant?
