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
Really? I wonder what they would do if this was linked over at the DU site? I don't have an account. Could you do it?
IMO the only reason the idiots at DU are against this is that it is a blue colar neighborhood = Democrats. If was a more upscale suburban neighborhood, they would be laughing as they would claim it was against Republicans and that was okay.
I suggested that we unite with DU at the homes of the plaintiff when the bulldozers come to tear down their houses. Hundreds of us should show up to demonstrate on the properties. 'twould be a "kumbaya" moment between Freepers and DUers, we could have some beer, tell jokes, and at least agree on SOMETHING...
Oh please. The left is angry about this ruling not because private property is being taken but because of *who* that property is being taken from and given to. If this land were being given to some conservation group to protect a spotted owl or some cave bugs, they wouldn't blink an eye. And if it were being taken from some Big Evil Corporation, they'd be doing cartwheels in the street. They've been taking people's stuff and giving it to others for decades. Now suddenly they're shocked, shocked! that the government is taking someone's stuff, even though they've spent years begging the government to do so. "But nooooo, we don't want to give it to *those* people; we want to give it to some *other* people." Oh well, too late. As long as they have no respect for property rights, they have no principled leg to stand on with their complaints. All they object to is the End, not the Means.
Seems a good time to quote Wm. Pitt. Not their Wm. Pitt...
The poorest man may, in his cottage, bid defiance to all the forces of the Crown. It may be frail; its roof may shake; the wind may blow through it; the storms may enter; the rain may enter; but the King of England cannot enter; all his forces dare not cross the threshold of the ruined tenement."
