Yes, it is. As far as they can see, which is pretty far.
I hope you're not saying Lincoln's quote is melodramatic?
A Yugoslavian SKS can be bought for about $100 and 1000 rounds of ammo for about $80 more. It is semi automatic and can easily be retrofitted with $15 detachable, 30 round mags.
Maybe, but that is what a lot of people thought about our founding fathers, too.
You are anything but melodramatic in my book. When Mugabe took those farms, a lot of men died defending them. I expected outrage over this issue.
But I didn't realise how much angrier people are over the value of their land than the value of human life. People let Terri die without a fight. People let millions and millions of innocent unborn die without a fight. Something seems wrong, here.
Perhaps people love their stuff more than innocent life. I'd almost prefer we passively surrender than to have such tainted priorities.
Unfortunately, that is not true. Most left before it came to that because Mugmby had already disarmed the people.
As for Terry and abortion, many people see that as something that is a person's right (right or wrong) and in individual decision. But EVERYBODY has to have a place to live and the government won't give a tinker's damn what your political affiliations are when they come to throw you off your property.
It has always been my understanding that you cannot own property in that State only lease.
I was hoping you would say your outrage is over both, combined. Land=money. As I see it, unless you fight for both, your intentions are not for the innocents of this land, but over money.
the supporters of this decision today are going to use that spin to change whatever public opinion might form against what happened - they are going to say "those who oppose this ruling want all zoning laws repealed". Its a lie, but they will use that spin to their advantage, don't help them. this is about seizure and eminent domain.
THE PROBLEN IS OVERCROWDING FROM POPULATION GROWTH.
CAUSED BY MASSIVE IMMIGRATION.
If they didn't need to make room to house and supply all those immigrants, they wouldn't need to take your property for any reason.
There would be plenty of room and resources and roads and parking lots for Americans, OUR children, and for wildlife.
Population growth from immigration is what has been taking your freedoms away.
So long as we flood the country with people, so long will even I agree that our rights and freedoms must be renegotiated down.
The Supremes just screwed over every American in this country, regardless of political belief. This isn't a waste of time, imo. This decision needs to be overturned and fast.
Here's one: Term limits for judges.
Nope, this is just a new twist on the old gig of taking prime land (waterfront property in the SCOTUS case) and turning it over to the gubmint's cronies when it is decided that the new sewer plant would be better located on cousin Ed's property downwind of town after all(which was purchased from cousin Ed at a huge profit to cousin Ed, who, naturally, shares his largesse).
The taxpayers eat that cost, either through property taxes, bond issues, or more pressure on the local police to write people up for jaywalking and spitting on the sidewalk.
In the meantime, the cronies grease palms to purchase the siezed 'surplus' property for pennies on the dollar, and kick back a chunk of the profit to the folks who set the deal up. Then they develop it into ritzy megabuck makers or tenaments to be, and make their own private killing.
Now the SCOTUS has just eliminated cousin Ed and the new sewer plant from the equation, which means there won't be all those pork barrel construction jobs for the illegal immigrants to take. It is a win-win deal for the local gubmint gang and the deveolper, who both get a bigger slice of your pie.
The illegals, meanwhile can only get jobs as taxi drivers and in housekeeping.
You, on the other hand, as a property owner, get screwed.
Are you claiming that the majority of politicians are trustworthy people? I find it extremely hard to agree with that.
Not to be too nit picky, but all day I have been correcting this mistake.
This ruling is fascism, not socialism or communism.
"It begins and ends by ramming unequivocally conservative SC judges down the throat of Democrats to the betterment of the Republic.
Enough GOP appointed Souters, Kennedys and O'Connors.
Dubya Bush had better come up BIG."
Don't count on it. Any conservative nominee will result in an "extrordinary circumstance." I predict a vacant seat until Hillary Clinton nominates a liberal justice and the Republican controlled Senate votes the liberal in.
