There are a number of drone numb-nuts parroting the pending demise of the State of Arizona. I am not one of those and I pride myself on not being a parrot for any side. That said, on the meme of tourism armageddon I thought some truth might prove interesting.
Overnight visitors in 2008
I have to confess that I do not know the full definition of “overnight visitors”. I imagine it is far ranging and at its base looks for people to stay “overnight” as opposed to passing through. It seems to be a number of some worth.
Annual visitor spending in 2008
Any money is good money and money from those that give but do not take (via services etc.) is the best.
In a state of 6.5 million that’s 3% of the population that is tied to tourism.One has to wonder how many are possibly illegal if this stat includes the hotel&hospitality industry.

Cities that have approved boycotts of Arizona:
A city with a myriad of problems of it’s own, it’s useless total shit bag Mayor deems this a good idea.
• St. Paul, Minn.
This “most livable city” has as a sister city. The Mexican city of Culiacán. This is a known narco-city.
Of what I know of Oakland this is another example of mindless political grandstanding. Oakland is a shit hole that once embraced the thought that teaching/accepting Ebonics was a good idea.
• San Diego
Guess they’re exorcising themselves by proxy the fact they voted for California’s Prop 187
• West Hollywood
• El Paso (city and county)
If it’s Texas I really have to wonder about their mental status. El Paso TX is a major recipient of the backwash from Ciudad Juarez Mexico.
• Boulder, Colo.
Typical of Boulder
Pending decisions by cities
Los Angeles. Seven council members signed a proposal for boycott on April 27. A spokesman for the city controller identified at least 12 city contracts with Arizona companies that are worth an estimated $7.2 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.
San Francisco. Mayor issued edict banning travel. Board of Supervisors to consider boycott resolution May 11.
Milwaukee. Common Council was going to vote May 4, but resolution put on hold for more work.
Public bodies that announced Arizona boycotts:
Denver Public Schools, banning work-related travel to the state.
What travel could there be? Bogus posturing.
Groups that announced travel boycotts of Arizona:
• Service Employees International Union
This is a good thing!. Now Arizona employers can look forward to not being attacked by graft munching thugs.
• United Food and Commercial Workers International Union
See above. I also doubt they had a lot of AZ bound travel plans. There are 50 states in the union. Scratch the South and Alaska and you still have plenty of places to go blow your members money at. Great irony here is most boycotters will go to Vegas and take day helicopter trips to the Grand Canyon. DOUCHEBAGS!!!!!!!!!
• National Council of La Raza
This is awesome. If these racist shit bags boycott Arizona perhaps Arizonan law enforcement will never have to use their “new” powers.
• Asian American Justice Center
An organization that actively tries to undermine America. One of the many groups that paints the immigrant picture with a broad brush. No lines between illegals and legals with these lawyers.They stand for law mmmpphhh ;their law seeing as they obviously hate America.On the illegal front Arizona may or may not have illegals from an Asian background. Hard to know since the Asian demographic of the state is less than 3%. Of note Asians do make up the second largest bloc of illegals in the USA
• Center for Community Change
A group that probably couldn’t get ACORN funds to go and protest in Arizona anyway.This organization is pro-Amnesty,anti-American sovereignty.
• League of United Latin American Citizens
Staying out? Way to represent.
• National Puerto Rican Coalition
I just don’t know how this one even matters.Per 2000 US Census the PR population was 17,587 persons making up .3% of the population.
• Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights
These fucking communists! No seriously though they are an organization cloaked in goodness but that ultimately hate America.
Known cancellations of meetings or events planned in Arizona:
• National Urban League. The group issued a scathing rebuke of the city and immediately suspended consideration of Phoenix’s bid to host its 2012 annual conference.
Good. let’s face it though you all still hate them since the MLK thing.The NUL is a band of racists in their own right though which is a pity since they allegedly predominantly represent a demographic that is most hurt by illegal immigration.
• National Autonomous University of Mexico has canceled its exchange program with the University of Arizona.
• Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí has canceled its exchange program with the University of Arizona.
Stay stupid compadre.
