Welcome to Amerika

So now the Supreme Court has ruled that local governments can take your home or business for the use of private enterprise. They've always been able to invoke "eminent domain" to take your property for use in roads, schools, etc. but now a private company can claim your property to increase their profits.

That's what is happening right now in New London Connecticut. The local government seized people's homes to make way for an office, residential and retail complex supporting a new $300 million research facility of the Pfizer pharmaceutical company. They argued that the complex will increase employment, taxes, etc. which is all for "the public good".

This is disgusting! Some of these folks have lived in their homes for decades and certainly expected to remain there for the rest of their lives. I guess Dubya was right. Freedom is on the march. It's marching right out of Amerika.
