My #168 post was to you.
We Americans grant privileges to our government, not the other way, and some things are forbidden to government.
Or at least they were till this court came to town.

elected governments enact zoning laws and building codes. this SCOTUS issue is about eminent domain and the specific constitutional protection that applies to that. there is nothing in the constitution giving you the right to install substandard wiring in your home, government can regulate that, the same way they can regulate where porno theaters are built.
Good night, everyone, please get this issue all sorted out and fixed by tomorrow, so I don't have to worry about it anymore.
I really don't need my ulcer to get any bigger.
Thanks ... and I'd like to apologize for wishing on that monkey's paw I found that people would see how far we've departed from the Constitution.
