This is an issue which all Freepers (left or right) and americans can agree with I'm sure. Who in their right mind would be for this?
Ironically, as soon as some yuppie's property is taken so a Home Depot can be built, 49% of the population will conclude that this is another one of those "benefit the rich corporations" things that "the Republicans must have done."
Did you see the thread on DU? Talking about a truce with FR over this... Federal Express is delivering iced tea to hell as we speak!
Many thanks to the Republican presidents who appointed three of the five assholes who stole our property today.
I wonder if this precedent setting decision was based off of foreign law.
The liberals are taking a "scorthed earth" approach to this administration, and the majorities policies, so LETS GIVE THEM A SCORTCHED EARTH!
I for one have ahd all that I can take from these socilaist liberals!
I can, and will fight to keep what is left of my "property rights" and as for another revolutionary war II, it is closer than you think to becoming reality!!

"fury from the sky"
O'Conner was standing with the conservatives against the fascist five.
Yes. The laws of all communist and socialist countries allow the government to take possession of any and all property.
Very eloquent, Mr. Blood.
Since the decision was justified for the good of the community, I presume we are now living in a socialist state. There was a time when, in the USA, the good of the community was embodied not in the fact that every member of that community worked together, under direction of the komissar, toward a common goal, but that they retained individual rights. Including and especially property rights.
Don't worry, at some point in time in the near future I'm sure it will become SOP.
How would they feel if Wal-Mart wanted to bulldoze THEIR home for a Supercenter?
Remember when everyone wanted "zoning" and now they are waking up to realizing that by adopting "zoning" they gave up their private property rights to the government to control! HELLO!
WAKE THE HELL UP AMERICA!
I pray this is the alarm. even the Libs at DU are angry about this. They even suggested aligning with freepers on this one issue.
The Scotus needs somekind of accountability to the people
OMG, you read my mind. I just came from DU a few seconds ago to see what they thought. Yep, a few posters said that it would be a good idea and they'd like to start some grassroots FR/DU movement. WOW!
Thanks for posting this, but the USSC just confirmed what's been standard practice for at least the past 20 years. Besides us kooks, who cares?
Then the Second Amendment already trumps today's ruling.
THE SOCIALIST WHO BROUGHT THE ACTIONS!
Yes. Various malevolent forces are trying to layer the American Nation with all sorts of terrible laws and restrictions. They seek control of the populace and want to control people to such an extent that the citizenry can only behave like drugged wasps.
