The libs on the Court are gobbling up every bit of our freedom while they still can. They know their numbers will soon be altered. I keep thinking it can't get any worse but it does.

Serious issues like this one can be reversed with a Constitutional Amendment (I think) - I know, everyone thinks their issue is serious. This one is - it means any developer can enrich himself at your expense. There would be some case for this if most new development was an improvement - but more strip malls etc. we don't need.

And that doesn't even touch on the payoffs that already go on at city hall to get "things approved."

Or what about this scenario: your property is confiscated and after it's torn down and the foundation for the "improvement" has been poured, the developer suddenly goes belly up - with their gambler mentality and penchant for being over-extended this happens all the time.

It isn't only that these judges are libs or don't believe in private property - they really don't understand how real life proceeds.

Sorry for the incoherence - just a collection of thoughts generated by this latest "vehicle for mischief" on the part of the what is supposed to be our most supreme court.

To: Let's Roll
No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Well, the Fifth Amendment, the heart of the Bill of Rights, is completely gutted now.

The 'life' clause died with Terri Schiavo, and now this.

It would seem that the first test for all future Supreme Court nominees should be a sixth grade level reading comprehension exam!
