quote of the day
Bad law is bad law. Period. Correct me if I'm wrong, but from what I learned from reading history, we became an independent country because we didn't like some distant, powerful government telling us what to do, taking our property and taxing us.
We figured that we could take care of ourselves, and a lot of people were willing to fight over that principle. We fought, and we won.
Now, we have a distant, powerful government that taxes us more mercilessly, puts its boot on our necks, and tells us EVERYTHING to do, a lot worse than the British ever did. Now, they can take our property, too.
"When legislatures start new sessions in January, I expect the majority of states to take up bills that would restrict the use of eminent domain for economic development purposes," said Larry Morandi, environmental program director for the National Conference of State Legislatures.
I hope so. And I also hope "emminent domain" takes Justice Souter's home and builds a big hotel with a nice swimming pool on the property he once "owned." That's certainly a better idea than allowing HIS weasel ass to live there. He doesn't generate enough tax revenue.
