So, our government hates us. A few days ago, the Supreme Court ruled on eminent domain powers. They came to the conclusion that state entities can take private property as long as it’ll generate some sort of tax revenue. I was so freakin pissed off when I heard this. I honestly can’t believe this is happening, although it doesn’t suprise me. I hope to god something is done about this, cuz it’s gonna lead to the downfall of our current govt. Not that it’s a bad thing.
As you can probably imagine, there’s a lotta pissed off people. VodkaPundit says “This ruling is a license for corruption and abuse.” I think he hit it pretty head on there, because it’s true. Businesses will just start giving money to the government to get private property. I’m sad.
And over at SayUncle, they have tons of commentary and all sorts of updates on the story. This is the stuff revolutions are made of. I liked the post title about this over @ Wizbang, it reads “All Your Property Are Belong To US”. Funny.
