And here I was, thinking that the Reps had completely sold out years ago..

But it turns out that after selling off their souls to corporate interests, they plan to officially sell off the infrastructure of government too...

From -

Call it a sign of desperate times: Legislators are considering selling the House and Senate buildings where they've conducted state business for more than 50 years.

If successful, by this time next year we could have -

The Arizona Community Financial Services Association House of Representatives Building

The Home Builders of Central Arizona Arizona State Senate Building

The Pinnacle West Executive Tower

Maybe we could sell off

...the state's parks and ADEQ to mining interests (Sydney Hay needs a job, doesn't she?)

...the Department of Education and the state's universities to the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (bonus - AACS is based in Scottsdale)

...DPS could be sold to Redflex Traffic Systems

...the county jails in the state to the Mob (the state's prisons are probably going to The GEO Group, AZSOS filer ID 201000125, as soon as the Reps pass their budget)

...and the list goes on.

Of course, a lot of this, especially the stuff involving the Capitol buildings, would just be officially acknowledging what most people know is currently reality.

I think my initial reaction to hearing this, is about the best I can say about this whole mess.
