America is DEAD! Supremes rule cities can destroy your home to make room for shopping mall

The notion of liberty - and this has especially been true with the notion of liberty in America - is based on the concept of personal property. That you and you alone know what is the best use of the land and possessions that you own, so long as you do not interfere with the right of others to do the same with their own.

No more.

The Supreme Court has ruled that cities can seize and destroy private homes and businesses to make way for private economic development.

Meaning that if you have a small business, and there's an even BIGGER business (like Wal-Mart) that wants to build a store where YOUR business is, the town you live in can side with Wal-Mart and destroy everything you've done with your own business, just so they can build their store.

This is the kind of thing that makes it seem pretty damn sensible to run out and burn a flag in protest. Why not? There is no more America.

Let this country crumble into ruin. I don't care anymore. Not when IDIOTS like the five justices that voted in favor of this are so damned blind that... THIS JUST SUCKS DONKEYS BALLS TO NO END, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN??!?!!

This may finally be what drives too many people up against the wall for the last time. That's the only silver lining I'm seeing to this. It is finally "that time", if you've ever read Claire Wolfe's stuff. Because if government can side with big business to take away everything you have, what is there that's really left to lose? What might that drive some people to do?

When property rights are dead, America is dead.

'Nuff said.

"The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the law of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence. Property must be secured or liberty cannot exist."

-- John Adams, Founding Father, 2nd US President

WHAT IS THIS COUNTRY COMING TO??? It sure as HELL isn't personal freedom and the founding principles of this once-great nation. I say once-great because it has ceased to be great. Every day we lose more personal freedoms and people don't seem to care at all. BAH!

AfterShock, it gets even worse: "Woman stopped at Logan with $46,950 sues DEA". Some lady with the cash for it was flying out of the country for plastic surgery when she stopped by a Drug Enforcement Agent. The DEA thug said that she "didn't need plastic surgery" and took the money. Under current drug laws, all a DEA agent has to do is suspect that that much cash is "drug money" and it gets seized. Same with houses and cars "suspected" of being involved with drugs. And you never see it again. It's "guilty until proven innocent". Even if you're found innocent, the government keeps it.

These people need to have an encounter with a small flying piece of ferrous material.
