Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit

Arizona Legislators Have Bickered, Rehashed and Delayed Bills since the session started. Yesterday we heard high praised from the Governor for the fastest, shortest session in 70 years. We have also heard about the 1 am Senate shut down and the 3:45 am House sine die arizona-legislature-session-final-hours. When leaders decided they were going to shut things down Thursday evening, Arizona-Legislature-Ends-2015-Session-After-Senate-Signs-Out), it thumped out the bills with the speed of a “wham, bam, thank you mam” road salesman.
Listed below are some of the bills that were approved between April 1 (April Fool’s Day) and the wee hours Friday, April 3 -- before some of them walked out from exhaustion or frustration – or both. Never mind that bills that should have been addressed lay discarded. Snow cones and stray cats took priority over ballot harvesting, gun laws, etc. Some of these discarded bills will resurface next year. Others are probably forever dead. These lawmakers are the same people who campaigned on promises to represent the citizens of this state. Little did we know that finishing session before Easter was more important than finishing business started in January. Some House members are angry that the Senate opted to shut down before the House was done voting (Arizona Legislature Ends: Senate Adjourns While House Still Voting). Taxpayers aren’t happy with the shenanigans either. We criticize the US Congress when they bail out of DC to catch their flights home for the holidays – leaving unfinished business. Now we are seeing it on the home front. Legislative Final Hours:

[Editor: Nice that they had time for cats but not for kids!]
We the voters allow these "establishment" RINO's in ... and its time we voiced our complaints that Conservatism in NOT in the Democrat party for a reason. Representatives work for us, yet it is we who are betrayed by them.
This cancer of liberalism is a clear and present danger to the host, and some in the "establishment" wing of the GOP are the "OZ" lying in wait behind the curtain of deceptions ... all for power and control over "We the People" who elected them.
Its time to take off the gloves and kick somebody's BUTT.
