I would have thought scorpions something horrible. Hatred of billionaires is a pleasant surprise.

This from a state full of ranchers. Hahaha. Pot kettle much ladies and gentlemen?

Sorry, that was me moving here.  Skewed the poll.

As someone who lives in one of Phoenix Burbs, this story checks out!!! Also, I dont remember anyone calling me so I'll just add it here, Yes, I hate them...

How many ranches are owned by locals vs. how many are owned by out-of-state billionaires diversifying their portfolios with federal agriculture subsidies?

Does Tucson really hate billionaires, or just Maricopa County?

Having just moved to Tucson, I'm getting a kick. But not out of those farking billionaires.

Does this mean that the MAGAts are turning on the job creator class?

Not inaccurate.  Fair point.

Guarantee you that if a single billionaire (any of them) were to introduce himself to 99% of these respondents and tell them flat-out his net worth, they would immediately begin fawning over him.  They don't hate billionaires, they just hate that someone else has gotten better than they have.

The other 1% do hate billionaires, and would likely trip the farker as he tried walking back to his vehicle, or at least spit on him.

Billionaires are bad for the economy, and cause very real harm to the overall populace.  But really, what the vast, vast majority of people hate is feeling like a loser, and compared to someone worth billions, even a millionaire has lost in the game of money.

This is an outrage! Arizona is, at best, 3rd in Trumpublicans, behind Texas and Florida. They're not anti-government at all! They're pro-President-for-life Donald Chump. His only flaw is, he hasn't grown out a toothbrush mustache yet. He might not be able to. He might need a nose merkin.

Not leading in people who hate popups, judging from TFA.

Scottsdale, the land of 30,000 dollar millionaires.

I've only lived in Tempe and Mesa. My car stereo was stolen so often in Mesa that my folks thought I was selling it for drugs.

We hate the 1% so much we elect them to every high office in large numbers.  Every POTUS in modem history graduated from an Ivy League college (undergrad or grad school), except Nixon.
Arizona sure loved John McCain, he died in office ffs.  But sure let's hear more about class warfare.

A majority of ranches have sold off deeded lands to investors circa 2005-2008. My ole buddy Mahlon is 3rd generation rancher and has only 80 acres of a 11,000 acre place (national forest lease). He is not a billionaire and might scratch enough together if he sold off everything to have a million. Andy and Stephanie have a large 5th generation ranch but they don't act live Kevin Costner (nor have a helicopter and a fleet of new trucks). Brian owns a gun shop. Kristin has a small lease and some private that she works, nothing obscene.

That said, the $$$$$ in the Catalina Foothills only grows by the day while a large portion of Tucson still lives in trailers.

Ranchers are all pretty poor unless they've gone into real estate. And there are a lot fewer of them. They own a lot of land though. Land with no water, no roads and no power.
 
2022-05-24 5:24:35 PM  
Whoa, there, Subs.  Texas has way more immigrant deaths each year!
 
2022-05-24 5:36:42 PM  
Let's see, the people being hated are the ones who moved down there to get away from allergies... and then planted northeaster lawns, bringing *all* the allergies with them, and using the water....

I've lived on the south side of Tucson for a dozen years. It's the part of town that others tell you not to move to. They won't say it out loud, at least not to me since I'm black, but they tell people not to move here because of the crime, drugs, etc. What they really mean, is there are black and brown people there, so you wouldn't want to live there.

Meanwhile, my development is lovely and mostly populated by engineers from Raytheon and military officers from the AFB. There's a major street that separates my development from the hood, and that's the thing about Tucson that perplexes me. The haves and have nots generally live very close to each other. Maybe that's why the resentment of the rich is so strong here.

For the record, I hate the rich a-holes too. Not a lot of Republicans win in southern AZ, but they certainly win at the sate level. It's not us voting for them, that's for sure!

You know what they might want to consider though? Getting into solar. Ranchers turned Powerbros. Might make money doing that than by raising beef.

I've found that strange as well. I live just North of the University and it's a mix of nice and poor looking houses all over my neighborhood.

When people ask what are the "nice" and "bad" parts of Tucson, I'm like, "It's hard to tell honestly." I mean, the far North parts are almost all ritzy, but otherwise it's a mix all over the rest of the city.

Well, the trailer parks house more people here than Scottsdale.
