Supreme Stupidity

The Supreme Court has once again proved exactly how damn stupid they all are....
Can anyone here make an argument for them in their defense( Do not defend them if you are not a homeowner) Supreme Idiots



Nothing is safe now,if your city wants to tear down your house for a new mall,Quick E Mart,gas station,as long as they believe they can make more off of the taxes the store or buisness will generate you are screwed. What a crock of **** !!!! **** the Supreme Court!!!!!

Five years ago when we built this house, wife and I built and set it up as our own little Paradise. It was not built for any resale consideration but only the way we wanted it.

We will be setting on the deck and wife will say you could not pay me enough to sell this place and i want to die here.

Well, she best hope some frickin politician does not decide he wants this place more than she does because he just won!

That had to be the stupidest ruling ever.

I certainly wish that they'd offer to buy mine at a fair market price. It's worth more now than it was 6 years ago. I could cut my monthly expenses in half.

I do understand that's not the case with most folks and it doesn't take sentimental value into account, which is exprtemely important to us.

They've given big business an upper hand yet again, Nafta first, Cafta second and now eminent domain benefitting private business. Why not declare a state of martial law, re-institute slavery for all residents (aliens included) and get the revolt over with?

Its frightening, especially since I am only a few blocks away from retail shops... the weirdest thing is that it was Rehquist, that I agreed with... I had to wash my brain out when I realized that...

Let the judges be the first to have to move to make way for Walmart or the new mall.

Looks like they are only following the golden rule - He who has the gold, makes the rules.

Thats politics for you. Something like that happened around here not to long ago. I used to live in a town called Holliday, TX about 10 miles from Wichita. My family built a house out there in a quiet little town with a good school, the same place that my grandparents, and my mom went to school. Well a few years ago, they decided that a freeway would be nice to go from Wichita Falls all the way through Holliday. My dad found this out and the plans for it were to force some people out of their homes for the construction and the freeway was supposed to go right through our backyard!! My dad went through holliday trying to petition against it, but most people didn't even know about it and there was nothing that we could do to stop it. So we bilt another house just outside Wichita Falls on Lake wichita and moved there.
Since then we had to sell that house and buy a cheaper house which is where we live now on the same lake because of the bills and all that stuff. Just goes to show you, The more money you have, the more people you can screw over.

emminent domain is nothing new. This happens all the time, look at San Jose, Hundreds of homes were removed to finish 87 and build guadalupe park. WHen it comes to the goverment seizing land for "public use" like freeways and parks etc, you are powerless, cause its legal. What has happened here is that the Supreme Morons decided it was okay to take land FOR COMMERCIAL use such as corporations, housing development and malls, using the "tactic" that the "added jobs" and "improved" neighborhood, would indeed help the public... heh they strecthed that a bit thin if you asked me... This clears the way for corporations such as Walmart, Target, Mcdonalds etc, to claim "good spots" and use that impending jobs as "good for the public"... basically if a corporation wants your land, they can have it. time to start cleaning house in washington dc...

Wakborader that does suck,I lost my first home to eminent domain laws a few years ago.However I am in a much better situation,and the Airport noise where I lived at was already overbearing,especially with UPS jets taking off and landing continuously.
Eminent Domain laws like what you and I were affetcted by have been around forever.They have always been used to build roadways,schools or other "Public Use" areas such as firehouses,Police Stations,etc.
What the new law does is allow the Government to take YOUR property,and turn it over to PRIVATE INDUSTRY,to generate MORE TAX DOLLARS,for the government in your area.The battle happened in Conneticut,where owners of homes on a beachfront lost their homes to the city,so private orginizations can build resorts.Now we all know the elected officials are getting their pockets padded by the resort company,and stores which will be built there.One homeowner has lived in her home ALL her life,it was her parents home,where she was born,and now the Gov.,takes it from her.
Here is another kick in the ****,if your property appraises for $200,00,but the gov.determines it is a "blighteted" area.They can offer you as little as they want to and acquire it for next to nothing.Watch out,the corruption is soon to start all over America with this Head Up The **** ruling by the Supreme Court.

And if any of the Justices were to lose their property to Emminent Domain laws (Yeah,right!!) They would definently be coming out on the good end of the stick at taxpayers expense.Chances are they would have a stake in the corporation,or buisness going up.You can sure bet that no strip mall or gas station will get property owned by Stevens,Kennedy,Souter,Ginnsberg,and Breyer.Isn't it great that there are no term limits for these idiots who are appointed rather than elected into their politically charged cozzy world.Once again,a big **** the Supreme Court!!!




We want to put a parking garage on your property,here is $20.00,GET LOST!!
