On Thursday, June 23rd, 2005 Supreme Court of these United States declared war on people. On that dark day, five black robed tyrants, issued a decision that rewrote our unalienable rights as Americans; something that term “unalienable” meaning derived from God was supposed to prevent. Judicial fiat has rewritten words upon which our nation is founded and trumped private property rights of citizens and these self made gods wiped their rear ends with Constitution and Declaration of Independence. The words that we are “endowed by [our] Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and pursuit of Happiness” have been changed. Now, apparently our rights are really government’s rights and are now to be read as “Life, Liberty and pursuit of Higher Taxes”.
Am I angry? No. I am not angry -- I’M PISSED OFF!
I cannot believe for a minute that this ruling which says that government has right to take your property and give it to someone else so they can make more money was even conceived much less agreed to by a majority of those that have been entrusted to uphold rights of Americans.
All For The Public “Good”:
In rationalizing this horrendous destruction of our rights Justice John Stevens wrote for majority "The city has carefully formulated an economic development that it believes will provide appreciable benefits to community, including - but by no means limited to - new jobs and increased tax revenue."
It’s eerily reminiscent of way we used to try and trick our teachers into thinking we knew more about a subject that we really did isn’t it? You know, when teacher would ask you what major exports of Mexico were and you would name one item and then conclude with “…and many other things.”
Might I ask a serious question here Justice Stevens? When did we become a truly communist State where land is doled out to people as government sees fit and where they are allowed only to reside there by grace of bureaucrats? When did we become a country where ANYWHERE it is mandated function of government to provide “new jobs” for people? Did I miss that somewhere in Federal Constitution in Article I, Section 8? And I dare say that I will guarantee you that if I look at Constitutions of our 46 States and 4 Commonwealths that vast majority, if not ALL of them, make no such reference to that power either!
Jobs, my dear, deluded and sick Justice Stevens are created by people not by government mandate. And let’s be honest here “jobs” issue is just a red herring government is throwing out there to disguise that they just want more tax revenue to spend on every little pet project they can dream up and entrench them deeper into power.
Joined with Justices Souter, Ginsburg Kennedy and Breyer Justice Stevens and Supreme Court has successfully surrendered United States of America to oppressive ideology that we have spent so many years fighting against. They have surrendered us to Communism which surprises Hell out of me since I cannot remember that anywhere among their enumerated powers in Constitution is right to surrender United States to enemy. But now five men and women have surrendered us to exact same enemy that brave Americans have shed their blood and given their lives to protect us from for decades.
The Liberals Expose Themselves Again:
This decision comes from liberal and progressive wing of court. I want to see left wing noise machine try and claim that it is really liberals that are “for little guy” after this. Because it is “little guy” that is going to be hurt most. It is going to be “little guy” living in a modest $50 - $100k home, paying a small amount of taxes, that is going to be target to have their homes seized and bulldozed for mini-malls and office buildings worth millions to a developer and that will bring in huge tax windfalls to local government.
