I heard someone on the radio yesterday, I think it was JD Hayworth on his show, ridiculing the state government for trying to make the state look like an attractive location for businesses when they’re having to sell their own buildings and rent them back. Doh!

The proceeds of these sales .... are to retire existing debt or simly to meet expenses?

If the latter, what does the plan say about what gets sold next year .... and to whom?

Here in Ohio, they just auction off legislators.

Apparently the money is going to be taken away by the feds and put into an annuity that pays Arizona $800 a month. tax free.

Ongoing costs. About future plans, other than to surmise they may be hoping the economy will bottom out and tax receipts will pick back up. Manet Napolitano did a lot of damage to the state with a lot of new spending when she was here. Glad to be rid of her, but sorry for the rest of you!

How can it even be legal to sell the Capitol? Don’t the “people” own these buildings?

And the money is already spent. geez. what happens next year?

I know. They’re idiots. Manet’s “Republican” replacement isn’t as big an improvement as she should be.

Why was the Capitol building and legislative chambers a state property?

No, it’s not. The next phase ought to be a public sale and lease-back of legislators and other state officials. This would generate revenues and be a blow for honesty in government (we all know they’re whores, and they would finally be making it public record.)

They should turn the Capitol building into a giant bordello.

At least then some meaningful work will get done by honest people and they will provide a more useful service than any government employees there currently are capable of. The quality of people in the neighborhood would be vastly improved as well.

It’s hard to imagine what they have left to sell for next year. I bet they increased the budget too.

Did you listen to the song I pinged to you? Listen to it in light of what is happening right now in America and let me know what you think. Forgive me for not knowing how to make the link “hot.”

If you listen to the words of that song, you will see the blue print of the Liberals’ - the elite’s - New World Orther thinking and behavior today.

“Living for today” is what Arizona is doing in selling it’s capitol building and renting it back in the future. It solves the problems for today and is not concerned about the expenses that will be incurred in the future. Same with the US debt - unworried about the consequences as they do what feels good today.

“Imagine there are no countries...the world will be one” - the world government of “peace”...

Here are the words to the song:

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today...

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace...

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

I totally agree with you.

The result will be catastrophic mass death, slavery, starvation and totalitarianism.
