"I certainly don't want my neighbor to be able to claim zoning laws are unconstitutional and turn his house into an adult bookstore"
Do you want private property rights ?
Or do you want government granted privileges to your property ?
You seem to be part of the problem.

not at all, and if you mix that issue with this ruling today, you are going to play right into the hands of the people who support this ruling.
private property rights doesn't mean my neighbor can tear down their single family house and build a 50 story skyscraper there, or a porno movie theatre, or a garbage dump. if that's what you believe "property rights" means, you are way off base. zoning laws are zoning laws, eminent domain is eminent domain.
zoning laws _are_ unconstitutional
We should fight them also.
Todays atrocity by the court is only the latest in a long line of attacks on the Constitution and American individual sovereignty.
Today's decision was just so outrageous that some have awakened from their sheep-hood.
