clip_image002Might the question be … where does sustainable begin…?

Or the illusion end…?

Or is it all just an illusion…?

With the mere combining of hydrogen and oxygen atoms can we successfully produce water any where under any circumstance making water appear infinite…?

Or with the technology we believe we control can we make water appear in places now dry, desolate and desert…?

Does our belief in our ability to control the technology to alter the weather to the point where it rains and water flows enabling profit$ to be sustained to those select few who believe they own the sources of water needed to sustain all of mankind, his plants and animals, too…?

I don’t believe you …

In case you missed it, and given that they were going strong well into the wee hours of the morning, you probably did.

Note:  when a bill description is in quotes, it’s quoted from the summary of that bill crafted by legislative staff.

Note2 – I didn’t see the discussion for most of the bills because of the late hour, so for the most part, I am not including any of those here.

- SB1611, Russell Pearce’s latest attack on people with brown skin.  Passed 7 – 6.  The four Democratis on the committee opposing, as did Republicans Rich Crandell and Sylvia Allen.  Crandall suffers from occasional bouts of decency, so his vote wasn’t entirely surprising.  Allen, however, is a close friend and ally of Pearce, and usually is completely on board the nativist train.  Senior moment?

- SB1308 and SB1309, the anti-14th Amendment bills, passed by identical 8 – 5 votes (1308 and 1309).  All four Democrats on the committee, as did Republican Crandall.

- SB1405, turning Arizona’s hospitals into immigration checkpoints, passed 8 – 5.  Same voting pattern as above.

- SB1407, requiring school districts to collect data on students who cannot prove lawful residency in the U.S. and district, and requires districts to forward the info to the state.  Passed 8 – 5.  Same voting pattern as above.

- SB1519, completely repealing AHCCCS, Arizona’s Medicaid program.  Passed 8 – 5.  Same voting pattern as above.

- SB1380, mandating drug testing for welfare recipients, passed 9 – 3, 1 not voting.  Three Democrats opposed, and one (David Schapira) was out of the room when the vote was taken.

- SB1115, ending the Arizona Board of Regents, who oversee the state’s universities, and replacing the Board with Boards of Trustees for each individual campus, passed 9 – 4.  Party line vote.

- SCR1014, related to SB1115, removing from the Arizona Constitution language regarding the Board of Regents.  Passed 9 – 4.  Party line vote.

- SCR1045, completely policizing the selection of Arizona judges by removing language in the AZ Constitution requiring professional evaluations and screening by the Arizona Bar Association for the attorney candidates for the various judicial selection commissions in Arizona.  Passed 9 – 4.  Party line vote.

SB1141, "Requires parents, or persons who have custody, of a child who will attend a public, private or charter school to provide verifiable documentation of Arizona residency, and requires school districts and charter schools to maintain the documentation", passed by a 9 – 4 vote.  Party line vote.

- SB1497, gives "Arizona Constitutional and statutory rights of public agencies to the legal entities created through intergovernmental agreements."  Passed 9 – 4.  Party line vote.

- SB1589, further privatizing the operations of MVD.  Passed 9 – 3, one not voting.  Three Democrats opposed, Kyrsten Sinema out of the room when the vote was taken.

- SB1540, "Establishes the removal or defacing of political mailers, handouts and flyers as a class 2 misdemeanor and requires a condominium and planned community to allow door to door political activity."  Passed 11 – 2, Aboud and Cajero Bedford dissenting.

- HB2016, updating language regarding budget reports.  Passed 12 – 1, Aboud dissenting.

- SB1013, tranferring the Arizona Capitol Police, currently a part of the AZ Department of Administration, to the Department of Public Safety.  Passed 11 – 0, 2 not voting.  Schapira and Cajero Bedford were out of the room when the vote was taken.

- SB1113, barring "existing licensed facilities operated by the state or contracted with the Department of Economic Security (DES) to provide intermediate care facilities for mental retardation services for developmental disability members", passed 13 – 0.

- SB1353, "Repeals state photo enforcement and adds an assessment of $10 on every civil penalty or fine resulting from a citation issued by a peace officer for a traffic offense. Requires a municipality to use monies to supplement funds available for the purchase of protective armor, electronic stun devices and other safety equipment." Passed 13 – 0.

- SB1583, updating the membership of the state nursing board.  Passed 13 – 0.

- SB1039, creating a "home certificate program" relating to trust deeds and housing finance.  Complete legislative summary here.  Passed 13 – 0.

Of course, one should not forget the passage of the most vital bill of the entire legislative session, one that is key to the future success of the entire state.

SB1610, declaring that the Colt Single Action Army Revolver is the state’s official firearm.  Passed 9 – 4.  Party line vote.  I saw the debate on this one.  The Democrats didn’t actually object to the content of the bill, just the fact that is was being considered while the Republican majority refuses to address the real problems facing the state.

…Whew!!    Seriously, we should all thank the four Democratic members of the committee, Senators Aboud, Cajero Bedford, Schapira, and Sinema, as well as the committee and facility staffers who stayed throughout the entire proceeding.  Contrary to some of the evidence, there are still a few dedicated public servants in Arizona.

And I should believe Koch Industries because….?

Koch Industries says it won’t gain from Wisconsin bill

Liberal bloggers are alleging that Gov. W is attempting a giveaway to Koch Industries. | AP Pho

A lesser-known provision of Wisconsin’s budget-repair bill would allow the state to sell off publicly owned power plants in no-bid deals – prompting a flurry of speculation by liberal bloggers who allege that Gov. Scott Walker is attempting a giveaway to energy conglomerate Koch Industries.

The bill includes language saying the Wisconsin Department of Administration “may sell any state-owned heating, cooling, and power plant or may contract with a private entity for the operation of any such plant, with or without solicitation of bids, for any amount that the department determines to be in the best interest of the state.”

It would also exempt the deals Public Service Commission scrutiny, and says any profits would go into a budget stabilization fund.

Koch insists it doesn’t stand to gain from the legislation, and is furiously denouncing the rumors as they have spread to media outlets including MSNBC, Forbes and Bloomberg.

… Immigration activist is arrested for walking into Senate building … told he’s ‘not welcome’ …

Posted: 02/26/2011     By: Christina Boomer   

PHOENIX – A state Senator says not only does a state Senate building “blacklist” exist, but he knows who’s on it.

On Thursday, a prominent immigration activist was charged with trespassing after walking into the state Senate building.

Now some are accusing the Senate President is abusing his power by banning community activists from the public building.

Salvador Reza is a well-known community activist and opponent of several bills crafted by Senate President Russell Pearce to include SB1070.

On Thursday afternoon, State Senator Steve Gallardo told me Reza came to the Senate building to meet him to fill-out paperwork for a planned protest and described what happened next.

“As he walked in he was stopped by DPS officers and he was told he was not allowed in the building. When I asked the DPS officers why Salvador was not able to come in they showed me the paper and said Senator Russell Pearce had barred Salvaor Reza from the Arizona senate.”

DPS told us officers were working “at the request of Senate personnel, officers informed Mr. Reza that he was not welcome in the building and requested that he leave the Senate premises.”

When Reza asked why he was not welcome and then refused to leave, they arrested him for trespassing.

For much of Friday, rumors began circulated around the Capitol that Pearce had drafted a list of people he wanted banned from the building.

The Senator issued a news release to deny the allegation writing. “Let me make it clear: there is no ‘blacklist’ of people who are not allowed in the Senate building."

State Senator David Schapira said on Friday, “That is in contrast of what he told me yesterday on the floor of the Arizona Senate.”

Schapira said not only did Pearce confirm there was a list, but told him how to get it.

“The Senate President made it sound like this list has existed for awhile, that there are multiple names on this list, and that he wasn’t the first person to ban people from the State Senate. He made it sound like this is an old tradition that’s been around for a long time and suggested that I get a hold
