Land Seized In Kelo Decision
- Used For Debris Dump

by Brian Garst - September 3rd, 2011 - Big Government

In 2005, Kelo v. City of New London made eminent domain infamous. The widely reviled Supreme Court ruling gave the go ahead for the city of New London to use eminent domain for taking private property in order that it be given to a private company for “economic development.”

The public response was one of outrage. Facing the potential wrath of voters, politicians across the country moved to add new protections against such abusive seizures. But that wasn’t enough to save the homes of the folks in New London, whose property never would be developed. Pfizer, the intended beneficiary of the land theft, walked away years ago from their development plans.

Now, to add new insult to injury, the vacant lot is a dump.

A quote in the article is priceless. The arrogant totalitarian justices, lead by the brain dead Anthony Kennedy, insisted development of the land “would be executed pursuant to a 'carefully considered' development plan.” Not even close to true!

It is too bad these idiot totalitarian justices cannot be personally sued for their UN-constitutional ruling. It turns out the city of new London ultimately paid $80 million for a piece of land worth a fraction of that cost.

State Of The Union

It’s time to close the union violence loophole

by Mark Mix - September 2nd, 2011 - Washington Times

In the wake of a Verizon strike that saw clashes between union protesters and company employees, it’s worth asking a simple question: Why do union toughs have a federal “Get Out of Jail Free” card?

Most people don’t know it, but the Supreme Court’s 1973 Enmons decision exempts union officials from federal prosecution for violent activities “used to gain legitimate union objectives.” This baffling immunity gives union thugs license to harass, intimidate and even attack independent-minded workers.

According to figures compiled by the National Institute for Labor Relations Research, the media has reported more than 12,000 instances of union violence over the last three decades. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg - incidents that didn’t make the morning paper point to a much larger, unreported total.

Like the incompetent and tyranny promoting rules on murder that have left our nation with the highest murder rate in the world, the courts have embraced tyranny in union organizing too.

Why are the judicial tyrants never held accountable for their ignorant rulings? Why are the American people so gullible they continue to accept our corrupt courts as a system of justice when it is so clear that nothing could be further from the truth. There is no justice in America.

Anecdotal evidence, like union thugs throwing feces on twelve year old children of strike breaking parents, is ignored by both the media and the American populace. Nothing is done. Even when arrested, the judges send these people home with, at best, a slap on the wrist. How can such acts against children be tolerated in a truly civil society?

Actually the question answers itself. It can't. Such a society has stopped being civil and has become a tyranny.
