Eminent Ptomaine

Just what we need.

A pack of judges - mostly ones who are regarded as liberal, no less - deciding that it's okay for the Government to force you to sell your house to a giant corporation.

I'm so mad about this, I can barely see straight.

1) It's morally indefensible.

2) It plays into every "Big Government" stereotype that the right-wingers like to use to smear liberals.

3) It's ACTUALLY a gift to giant corporations, and doesn't have a damned thing to do with using Government in an activist manner to help the community. The Supreme Court has decided that a giant corporation's WANTS are more important than a person's RIGHTS.

Politically, they couldn't have given the right-wingers a bigger present if they tried.

And pragmatically, it just SUCKS, and it's a BAD DECISION that will negatively impact our cities and towns.

The right-wingers will use it as a weapon, and this time, they'll be RIGHT.

I think I'm gonna be sick.
