Not just crazy, BATSHIT CRAZY: Arizona poised to pass anti-UN takeover legislation
Agenda 21: Arizona close to passing anti-UN-sustainability bill
By Jim Gold, msnbc.com
Arizona lawmakers appear close to sending to Gov. Jan Brewer a tea party-backed bill that proponents say would stop a United Nations takeover conspiracy but that critics claim could end state and cities’ pollution-fighting efforts and even dismantle the state unemployment office.
A final legislative vote is expected Monday on a bill that would outlaw government support of any of the 27 principles contained in the 1992 United Nations Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, also sometimes referred to as Agenda 21.

Senate Bill 1507 was passed by the state Senate last month and received an initial House affirmation Wednesday. It is sponsored by state Sen. Judy Burges, R-Sun City West, who also sponsored a state birther bill that Brewer vetoed last year.
"The bill is designed to protect the rights of Arizona citizens and prevent encroachment on those rights by international institutions," Burges told msnbc.com in an email. "We have three branches of government and when one branch preempts the process through executive orders, the balance of power is lost in the process. It is that simple -- no more, no less."

3. The irony is absolutely amazing.......
There is an elite Establishment conspiracy, but they're doing the dirty work! Fucking Teabagger nitwits.........reminds me of all those McCarthyite nutters 50 years ago(funny, btw, how many of the most extreme amongst them south of the Mason-Dixon line seem to have ended up voting for Wallace back in '68.).

16. And the North American Union and One World Government. So many conspiracies, so little time
for the Arizona legislature to take care of them all. Must be nice to live in a state where all the typical problems that other state governments try to deal with are resolved in Arizona and the only thing left for them to do is to address UN meddling in state affairs.

11. Man, I can't even imagine having such a nutty legislature
any legislator in VT who proposed anything this nutty would likely find herself/himself in a psych facility on a 72 hour hold.

14. I am somewhat ...
encouraged. Because at the online discussion board of my local rag, while I still see full on nuttyism like this, I am seeing more posts saying: "Please take note of these bills and who is voting for them and REMEMBER come the fall."
