    This is an abomination !!!! Now any big business developer with political influence can seize and take away your home or private property in the name of "public use".

    If a liberal ever tells you again that they are "against big business" and "for the little guy", shove this issue in their faces!

    To paraphrase Charlton Heston, they can have it when they pry it out of my COLD DEAD FINGERS.

    Crap. :smoke:

    That means that it is only the Colorado SCOTUS that can protect my home against the "super-slab" private tollway that has put it in danger of being taken by force.

    My home is right in the middle of the fricking 12 mile corridor that they will have access to if this gets approved. DR. COG (Denver Regional Council of Governments) is against this, almost every county is also against it. The only city that I know that supports this new tollway is Pueblo which is such a dive that any growth whatsoever would be an improvement for them. They got shut down last year in the Legislature, but it will keep coming back up. This guy is nothing but relentless in his effort to get this new highway in.

    No. I vividly remember you trumpeting the infallibility of judges. You know I'm right, hence your anger. I'm glad we changed you for the better. And as for your off color language, go ahead and :moon4:

    W....T....F...

    I can just imagine the salivating over at DU. They finally have a chance to launch the Stalinist collectivization drive they have been waiting for. This is an utter perversion of the Constitution. Defining tax dollars as "public use"...my God.

    How long before they ignore the part about receiving "just compensation"? They already ignored the half about "public use", so why give 'em compensation? Is not the joy of knowing you helped the community by giving away your home to a tax-paying corporation just compensation?

    And how long before some CA atheist, having been successful or nearly successfull in getting crosses removed from memorials, the 10 commandments removed from from courthouses, personal prayer removed from schools, and "under God" removed the pledge, decides to turn his gaze upon Churches? After all, Churches don't pay taxes! It would be a community service to bulldoze those archaic structures to pave the way for the dictatorship of the proletariot--Er, I mean, uh, umm, tax-paying structures to help out the community!

    This SCOTUS ruling is unbelievable! It's right up there with the Roe v. Wade ruling!

    To think that some rich guys together with a local government can cause you to lose your home, your own business concern, or any of your private property so they can build a hotel, a health club, and offices there instead, is totally taking away rights of property ownership. But this is actually happening in Connnecticut today. People in a working-man neighborhood who have lived there for 30 - 40 years are only being compensated for the value of their homes and then kicked out. What about the value of their lives? What about their right to keep their own private property?

    It is one thing to for the government to exercise the Right of Eminent Domain for public purposes such as roads or parks. These things are funded by the public and are for the public. This decision is not about public use but is about private use.

    Obviously however, if any local government thinks it will profit by establishing a new and more profitable tax base it will happily team up with an investor looking to make millions. If this ruling holds, we can look forward to lots of folks losing their homes/businesses in the future.

    CNN has a poll going and of the 122,000 votes so far, only 1% think that the government should seize private property for private economic development. Once again our liberal judges are way out of step with the voters and are set upon furthering their own socialist agenda.

    I am still trying to encompass this, there is nothing in the Constitution that actually supports their decision. I think maybe it is time to see about the first Impeachment of a SCOTUS Justice, about 5 of them...
