KEYWORDS: extortion; fees; teaparty; zoning
Finally a piece of good news. A water agency in Florida wanted to extort a fee from a property owner to use his land. They were going to use the money for a purpose unrelated to the parcel of land. The scary part is that this was another 5-4 vote. Pray every night for the health of Justices Thomas, Alito, Scalia, Roberts, and Kennedy.

[Justice] Kagan said the majority "threatens to subject a vast array of land-use regulations, applied daily in states and localities throughout the country, to heightened constitutional scrutiny. I would not embark on so unwise an adventure."

I bet you wouldn't, ho. Note how trouble and anguish imposed upon inanimate regulations is considered a drawback, but burying real people (the ones with jobs, not the governmental parasites) under mountains of regulation isn't problematic.

This ruling is good news.

California agencies routinely require cell phone companies to make neighborhood improvements in exchange for tower permits, so they stand to get hit...and phone companies have deep pockets to make those hits.

Some permits departments nationwide require home Builders to develop off-site low-income units in exchange for permits, too.

What is she so afraid of? I mean the vast array of land-use that she speaks of is all constitutional? right?

Justice Kagan moronically presumes that "no use" is good for the land and that the almighty bureaucracy is serious about environmental productivity. Neither is true.

Oh, how could we... subject a fast array of land-use regulations, applied daily in states and localities throughout the country, to heightened constitutional scrutiny?

Good God, the horror of applying the CONSTITUTION!

Somebody.. something.. take those creatures back to where they came from.

Kagan is unqualified to have been in law school. She is example number one for what is wrong with quotas.

Kagan is afraid that redistribution of money via permit extortion will end.

we have DOMA coming up and if the court goes against us then tens of millions of votes and voters will be thrown away and states rights have gone.

Maybe they are getting ready to allow sham homosexual marriage

Kagan needs to put aside her copy of Agenda 21 and try reading the US Constitution for once.

The EPA is nothing but a front for the UN Agenda 21.

The Senate Republicans, a/k/a the saviors of the Nation, disagree with your opinion. I happen to agree with you, but that is just me.

Oh no, those poor regs are being abused! Mass protests are being organized by PETARD (People for the Ethical Treatment of Aggressive Regulatory Documents).

Because that would mean "Chief Justice Ginsburg" and "Associate Justice Cass Sunstein".

Because we need him on cases like this. Someone who is on my side a majority of the time is my friend.

If Roberts resigns from the court he will be replaced by someone like Kagan and Sotomayor. Would you rather have them?
