Pima County has had it

The folks in Pima County, Arizona have had it with their bat-shit crazy northern neighbors and are now threatening to create their own state:
Could Baja Arizona be 51st state in US?
Idea of Pima secession from state isn't new, but this time it's for real, new panel insists

Pima County the 51st state?

A political committee made up of attorneys, including the former chairman of the Pima County Democratic Party, has been formed to try to get Southern Arizona to secede from the rest of the state...Paul Eckerstrom, co-chair of Save Our State, said it's not a ploy and not merely a political statement. He said the state Legislature has gone too far to the right.

... In particular, a round of legislative measures challenging federal supremacy "really does border on them saying they don't want to be part of the Union any longer," he said.
Of course this doesn't seem likely to succeed in creating a new state, but it might help people from places like Tucson express the idea that, really, they're not like those morons in Phoenix.
