    Arizona Bein' Bad........
    They say that in order to know who someone is, just look at their friends. I say that an observation of those who oppose them can also reveal much. Since The Fair State of Arizona passed the Now Infamous Law known as "1070" (which a majority of said opposition hasn't even read - including the U.S. Attourney General (Eric Holder)), many people/groups have decided to boycott Arizona. Here is a List of Those Who are Officially Mad as Heck at Us as of 14 May 2010. Just looking at THE LIST almost makes me feel better in a way.......
