Bad Planning

Arizona Is Planning For Exodus to State in Event of Major Calif. Quake

Government agencies, businesses and other organizations in Arizona plan to participate in an exercise to practice how the state would respond to a migration of 400,000 people following a catastrophic earthquake in Southern California.
The Arizona Department of Emergency and Military Affairs says participants in the National Mass Care Exercise in the coming week will tackle how to organize operations such as providing food, shelter and medical services.

Ummm I’m just throwing the idea out there, but how about instead a building a high wall along the AZ-CA border, with occasional machine-gun towers?  Too extreme?  Yes?

My question then becomes:  what if the half-million displaced Californians decide to stay?


  1. Then Arizona would become just like Colorado, and that ain’t a good thing.

  2. Well, you have to consider that the refugees would be at the very pinnacle of intelligence, for Californians: they will have recognized, and chosen, a better alternative than staying in the wreckage.

    But then, that’s already happening.

    1. They can’t be that bright, because they bring their failed policies with them.

  3. AZ should build a wall and cut off the electricity and water they send to CA. CA has shat their bed; let them roll over and enjoy the smell.
    At the point Kim writes of, it won’t be the brightest leaving, but rather the locusts fleeing to search out another area to ruin. The parasitic kumbayah class has a gift for seeking out the beauty spots of the nation, alighting and taking over the local government, while their virtue signaling politics attracts bums, more parasites and certifiable loonies, empties the treasury, raises unpayable debt and attracts freestyle shitters to sully their streets and parks. Then they flee to another area to start over; e.g., Colorado, Virginia, North Carolina.

  4. Minefields. Lots of minefields. And you do not, under any circumstances, allow them to vote.

  5. Arizona might, if they did so quickly enough, find cause to deport a substantial subset of those incoming from californicata

    But its already happening, though slower. Dozens of people I’ve known here in ill-annoy have moved or retired to Arizona. Most of them leftists. You know what they’re doing once they get there…

  6. All the legal precedents are against it, actually, and so is the language of the 14th Amendment. The problem isn’t the requirement; the problem is that it establishes two different standards for groups residing within the jurisdiction. The South could have kept its’ various qualifications and tests; what it couldn’t do is apply those statutes unevenly to different groups of people.

  7. The border between California and Arizona is the Colorado River. A wall along it would be an interesting engineering challenge, unless Arizona were to just build the wall on the west bank of the river and dare the soyboys running California to do anything about it.

    A better idea might be to cut off the river flow somewhere before it gets to California. Hoover Dam might work; Lake Mead has been getting lower and lower in recent years. The Central Arizona Project would need to be extended north to whatever chokepoint is chosen, though, to keep from cutting off Phoenix. (It currently draws from the river a little bit north of Parker.) If Hoover Dam is too far north, there’s Davis Dam north of Laughlin and Bullhead City, just a few miles upstream from where the California, Nevada, and Arizona borders meet, but I don’t know that it would hold as much water behind it as Hoover Dam can manage.
