Eminent domain is when some government entity takes your property and puts it to public use. Adverse possession is what happens when a status quo use goes unchallenged for a long period of time.

Nope, since Kelo vs. New London, the government can take your property and give it to another person, it's all for the greater good, you see.

Thanks CB.

First, I do think there’s a strategy behind what’s going on but won’t bore with it.

It’s just, dag, why on earth would the Sussex dept of land or whatever just, badaboom, send me a letter, a FORM letter, willy-nilly telling me to move my fence? Shouldn’t they check into that sort of thing?

Seems to me this guy showed up with a survey, boom, everyone involved is supposed to move their fence. I got two neighbors or more involved with this. We are ALL upset, of course.

BUT....

...here’s my secret....I talked to BOTH of them on either side of me. Seems to me that one guy once owned the plat of land that includes my neighbor to right and left. MY plat of land was somehow sub-divided from this bigger piece of land.

Both of my neighbors hemmed and hawed when I asked if they had a survey like I had, a signed and certified thing. I don’t know why, but neither of them HAVE a survey of their lot. I have my suspicions, of course.

Anyway....I shall write on Delawarepolitics.net all about it...my council woman reads that column and she’s in touch with me. You must smile, but I was the campaign finance Treasurer for her recent opponent’s campaign.

Heh.

Already I put in a blurb....”let us see how Council Woman Joan Deaver assists me in this”.

Something very strange about this and I think I am caught up in it, always the innocent I am.

God does this weird stuff to me so I will write about it.

Am watching Chris Matthews....bunch of liberals....Chrissie seems upset over that 15 year old morning after pill.

Which is just an awful judicial decision. We need to get these powerful unelected judges outta there.

THIS might be the issues that unites liberals and conservatives cause we all have children.

One can hope, huh?

I know Marco is damaged goods here, Hot Air and elsewhere. But, I still can't help but think that if he hadn't joined the goofy gang of eight and hung around McQueeg so much he wouldn't have backtracked so bad and all but destroyed himself among conservatives.We sometimes forget he's a first year Senator,a lot to learn.

Marco Rubio is either a fool or he thinks we are stupid. I believe the latter rather than the former is the case. Either way, it raises serious questions about his judgment, his conservative credentials, and any future political ambitions he may harbor.

Morning Pat,

Just made myself a sausage/egg breakfast sammich...apricot jam. (flipped in my ceramic skillet of course) Sometimes I can flip an "over-easy" sometimes I can't.

Sorry to hear about your dispute.

We need to get these powerful unelected judges outta there.

Which is exactly why we have impeachment.

It happens over and over - they drink the Potomac water (or something). Rubio is a good man, and if he were the one that was going to be in charge of enforcement I would probably agree to the bill - if modified. BUT we all know that Administration has NO - none, zip, nada - intentions of enforcing anything written in that bill EXCEPT FOR THE INSTANT LEGALIZATION. In many state a drivers license is the key to voting. We had that fight down here in AZ when Zero allowed the illegal dreamers to stay without fear of deportation. What is the first thing they demanded? DRIVERS LICESNES. Our Gov Jan Brewer issued and EO stating in accordance with State Law NO DRIVERS LICESNES FOR FOLK WHO ARE ILLEGALLY IN THE COUNTRY. Oh you should hear the screaming, gnashing of teeth and promises of law suite. As I understand the law Hussein has NOT made the illegals be legal or documented - only put a hold on deportation. Brewer is CORRECT, of course.

If this "comprehensive RAT making legislation" passes both chambers - and I believe it will - it is the end of America absolutely. The nation will look like southern CA in a decade or less. We will become a bilingual nation and nothing in the law will be enforced unless it advantages ILLEGALS. The rest of us are screwed. Isn't Congress supposed to be working for CITIZENS interests - why are they spending so much time to advantage the folk that broke into OUR country through the back door and are now demanding "PAPERS"? Can anyone answer that - including you Rubio?

Barkley has been involved in a number of on and off the court fights usually involving someone a lot smaller than him. He has been arrested for tossing a guy through a plate glass window. He is a compulsive gambler and womanizer. He has long been known to step out on his wife whenever the mood strikes him.

He is also in many ways a racist.

The aim is to make it a national holiday.

...probably as a replacement for Memorial Day, which only celebrates rich, white, racistbigothomophobe warmongers anyway.

(Should really put a /sarc here, but with the crap that's come out over the past three or four months, it may just happen, and the storyline wouldn't differ from what I just posted by much at all. Maybe I should just start using /patience instead.)

Great idea. Sure would be nice to expose some of the intimidation going on the regime.IT has to be really tough for some however. The Chicago thugs play a no holds barred game. They will intimidate or threaten to kill anyone. Nothing matters to them. They are above the law and they know it.

I really hate agreeing with you on this one but when I have conservative Cuban Americans truly pissed off at his backtracking it becomes really hard to defend his actions.
His only hope will be the House not passing amnesty and then hope that conservatives forget what he did. Both long shots.

Because they are overworked and underpaid, or, because it's easier to send you a form letter than argue with the complainant.

If your property was subdivided from a larger piece of land, the original owner may have been required to file a subdivision plat. Check your deed to see if you own, say, Lot 2, XYZ subdivision, or if it is lengthy metes and bounds description. Your neighbors my not have a survey, but that doesn't mean one was never done.

And how about your title insurance company? Can they provide you with any support or guide you where to find such help?

HEY RL!!

I bought one of those skillets at WalMart!

I love it!

Don’t yet be flipping food around but it’s just the greatest thing, really perfect for me, now a single person wanting a meal for herself without a lot of fuss.

Folks, sorry to be late with this but just now watching Fox News Sunday.

It was Chavitz, I think, and some Dem from Mass. Y’all mighta seen it earlier.

Man, how much money or promise did they have to do to the Mass Dem to go on TV and defend Benghazi?

The lamest, the funniest....my winner for the MOST ABSURD TALKING POINT OF THE WEEK....are you ready?

Asked if it wasn’t true that increased security was requested over and over again by the Libyan ambassador, and was always turned down.....Dem from Mass says:

“Every time increased funds for security at our embassies was requested, THE REPUBLICANS ALWAYS VOTED IT DOWN”!!!

That is so damn lame....but hey, the lo-fo voters, they buy into this stuff. Not that a lo-fo voter would be watching Fox News Sunday but you only gotta reach a few.

“Don’t pay any attention to that stuff about Ben-Gazi Meghan. I heard from my hairdresser that it was the REPUBLICANS who turned down funds for more security. Now they’re trying to pin it on Obama and once again, more racism, all the time from these people.”

For now, all I can say is like you, I suspect something not quite right here.

One thing, these surveyors were lollygagging all around my property line, get this, on the day of my husband’s funeral. My son-in-law, who meant well, was out there yelling at them, telling them to go away....

Son in law, not too bright, but he was passing to me all the things those guys were saying and one thing soninlaw told me was something about “the county made a mistake”.

My neighbor on one side is taking this very serious, she was boo-hooing that it would cost her $1,500 to move her fence and she had pets buried there.

Why is she so worried? I asked her if she had a survey? She said....”I did at one time” which, I must shrug. I would never lose such a thing but I guess you never know. She did say it was over 24 years ago.

Neighbor on other side says this is all about some other guy down the street whose fence was like ten feet over the line.

Heh.

Well truth is....I planned on tearing down my back fence anyway so it don’t much matter to me if in the end it turns out they get four more feet from my backyard. It’s plenty big and less for me to mow.

I suspect, but bear in mind I don’t know much about this, that those two neighbors on either side of me were too supposed to get a survey done as their lot boundaries changed. I suspect that builder got a survey and snuck it in because I don’t think they got a survey. There’s a history with the guy who owned my house before and he was a stickler and bit of a pain. He for sure had a lawful survey done and I think those people behind me want to lessen the easement of forest they are obligated to provide.

Again, folks, I dunno. But I got me a column read by everybody in Delaware, I am a recent widow....I shall use the Democrat method of making it all about emotion.

Pics of me chained to my fence, waving my certified and signed survey around....WHICH HAS AN ACTUAL PICTURE OF MY FENCE ON IT!!!

Heh.

God does this stuff to me, serious. Cause though I write fiction, even I couldn’t make it up.

PS...don’t forget pic of loyal dog who will run off once the constable tears down my fence. She will be sad too.

-- since Kelo vs. New London, the government can take your property and give it to another person, it's all for the greater good, you see. --

Yes but two points. The New London taking was by the government, not the neighbor; and the court worked this magic by redefining "for public use" to include any activity that generates tax revenue for the government. Eminent domain works against the owner if he (the owner) has the property by deed, or by adverse possession. Adverse possession can defeat a deed. Sort of resembles paper-scissors-rock, except the government always wins.

Your crank of a neighbor is following the rules, and the department of land isn't about to waste its time checking him, other than a review of the surveyor's report. The letter from the town is "step one" of the legal process. I suspect your neighbor intends to sue, and has to go through the town in order to perfect his right to sue.

Keep the faith! You bring lots of hope and positive energy to more people than you realize.

Which is extra rich. I recall the State Dept spinning that exact thing, then having to walk it back when the facts of the matter were shown. So they count on the ignorance of the sheeple, and the complicity of the hack media to shamelessly repeat the lie, and we have to re-refute their lie. It's a good example of how they play the game. Truth be damned because there are no consequences.

... (General) Ham ordered the launch of the response forces, but was told to stand down at the highest levels.

He needs to be subpoenaed as well.

Those responsible for this disaster need to be held responsible. We can start with the "man" at the top, who after a brief initial meeting shortly after it started ("just take care of it") was never heard from again until his Rose Garden Speech and Las Vegas fund raiser the next day. Where was he during those critical nine hours? What was he doing? Why was he totally and willingly out of the loop? Why did he deliberately cover this up?

This goes beyond "shameful". At the very least it is criminal negligence and a deliberate coverup at the very highest levels.

In reviewing Behngazi, compare to W.Bush being notified about 9-11, where’s he’s finished what he was reading and gracefully left to not to upset his audience at the school, the state department takes 20 minutes to tell the situation room, the situation room takes an hour to tell Obama, then he and Panetta talk for a half hour before any order is given, and just how did Panetta carry out those orders?

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57544719/timeline-how-benghazi-attack-probe-unfolded/

9:40 p.m. (3:40 p.m. ET): Gunfire and an explosion are heard. A TOC agent sees dozens of armed people over security camera flowing through a pedestrian gate at the compound's main entrance. It is not clear how the gate was opened.

The agent hits the alarm and alerts the CIA security team in the nearby annex and the Libyan 17th of February Brigade, one of several powerful militias serving as a de facto security presence in Benghazi. The embassy in Tripoli and the State Dept. command center were also alerted.

State Dept. Diplomatic Security follows events in real time on a listen-only, audio-only feed, according to testimony of Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant director for international programs, given before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Oct 10.

Around 10 p.m. (4 p.m. ET): At the compound, several DS agents leave to get tactical gear from Building B. One stays in Building C with Ambassador Stevens and Information Officer Sean Smith. The mob sets fire to the 17th of February Brigade barracks on site.

DS agent Scott Strickland moves Stevens and Smith to the closest area "safe haven" in Building C.

The other agents, currently in Building B and the TOC come under attack.

The attackers gets into Building C, lights furniture on fire, then the building's exterior. Stevens, Smith and Agent Strickland move to the bathroom and lay on floor but decide to leave safe haven after being overcome by smoke.

Strickland goes out an emergency escape window. Stevens and Smith do not follow. Strickland returns several times but can't find them in the overwhelming smoke. He goes up to the roof and radios the other agents.

Three agents return to Building C via armored vehicle. They search and find Smith's body, but not Stevens.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is told of the incident "shortly after it began at 4 p.m.," CBS News' Margaret Brennan reported Sept. 14. Clinton spoke to the Libyan President Mohammed Magariaf to "enlist his full support."

Meanwhile, the U.S. military began moving an unarmed drone over Benghazi to provide real-time intelligence to the CIA team on the ground. It would take roughly an hour to arrive.

10:05 p.m. (4:05 p.m. ET): An alert from the State Department Operations Center is issued to a number of government and intelligence agencies, including the White House Situation Room, the office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the FBI. "US Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack" -- "approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well. Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four COM (Chief of Mission/embassy) personnel are in the compound safe haven."

10:25 p.m. (4:25 p.m. ET): A six-member CIA team arrives from the annex with 40 to 60 members of 17th of February Brigade. The team removes Smith's body.

Around 10:30 p.m. (4:30 p.m. ET): Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and his top military adviser learn of the incident.

10:54 p.m. (4:54 p.m. ET): An alert from the State Dept. Operations Center: "the firing... in Benghazi has stopped. A response team is on site attempting to locate COM personnel."

11 p.m. (5 p.m. ET): Just ahead of the weekly meeting with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey, White House National Security Advisor Tom Donilon tells President Obama of the attack and the fire at the main villa. The president and those officials discuss possible responses to the situation.

I understand since he bashes Repubs and pulls the race card whenever he can. He sells himself as a regular guy and is not real PC but he sells the good guy persona well.

Pray for America to Wake Up

I was well aware of those reports, which is why I mentioned that the information was already in the public forum. I have had those confirmed from people who work in a congressman's office and the DOS.

There is a reason Fox wouldn't let this story die. Congress and the media know far more information than has been disclosed publicly. Whistle blowers have been contacting them, but there has been great trepidation about going public about it. Perhaps, this Wednesday we will see the first crack in the dam.

We really had the goods on Clinton way back when he sold missle guidance systems and imagery and telemetry systems to the Chinese (Loral) for campaign contributions.

When Senate Select committee hearings started, they were choked off by a suddenly exuberant John Glenn. His reward? A ride on the space shuttle in his dotage.

Wow thanks. There are no good reasons overwhelming force was not sent to help those in harms way at
Benghazi.This is treason, IMHO, at the highest levels of govt. No wonder the regime won’t cooperate.

Lets hope so. Getting rid of this commie regime we have in dc is all about good people standing up for democracy and what is right vs. what is wrong.
The country is at stake.

Good memory. Clinton was allowed to skate on so many things. Now he has a personal popularity rating of 71%. The American people have an attention span measuring in nanoseconds.

Funny you should mention that. I just read another piece on how the regime had the body years before they supposedly whacked him in Pakyville.
