What a crock...

The Supreme Court has decided, 5-4, in favor of New London, CT; unless/until the decision is overturned, the government can now seize your property to give to another private party in order to generate more tax revenue.

UPDATE: I'm surprised to see the DUnces largely coming out against the Kelo vs. New London decision. I'm glad to see it, but OTOH, it's kind of like the venerable "joke" that ends "...we're only arguing about the price." The left necessarily displays hypocrisy in opposing this decision. They think takings are wonderful, and that government owns you; the only question is how much the government will deign to let you keep.
