Incredible Supreme Court ruling is a victory for the New Fascist State

Do you actually think individual rights outweigh corporate rights in this country? Are we surprised by this ruling from the court that appointed G.W. Bush as president in 2000? Of course, one should not pay this any mind, we have more important issues like missing teens in Aruba or whether Michael Jackson will get his passport back.

This ruling says governments can take your home for the purpose of benefiting private corporations. Welcome to Amerika.

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8331097/

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

How chilling that I agree with the minority opinion, the ultra-right wing of the Supreme Court! Unbelievable rulings these days, I'm still reeling from the medical mary jane ruling, and now this approval of expansion of emminent domain power. We are seriously in for a rough ride.

You are gonna need some serious Chinese help to show you what's the meaning of nationalization, but I think this is as close and will probably lead the way for some more erosions of your rights.
Keep up the good work by trusting the few to do the thinking for you. Oh, I forgot, who am I to talk? geeez what do I know?

This was not the result of elected politicians; these are appointed judges--OK the appointments are by politicians.
You Bush haters must be really threatened now, because it was the liberal majority that gave this ruling.

They will find a way to blame Bush.

Quote:
O’Connor, who has been a key swing vote on many cases before the court, issued a stinging dissent. She argued that cities should not have unlimited authority to uproot families, even if they are provided compensation, simply to accommodate wealthy developers.

“Any property may now be taken for the benefit of another private party, but the fallout from this decision will not be random,� O’Connor wrote. “The beneficiaries are likely to be those citizens with disproportionate influence and power in the political process, including large corporations and development firms.�

She was joined in her opinion by Chief Justice William Rehnquist, as well as Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas.

Why?,
Because it shows that your myopia toward Bush being the evil one has blinded you to the evil from the other side. ( Karl Rove did not do this)
To be honest, both major parties are simply branches od the government party. Together they grow the power of government, together they remove our rights.
Do you all still think McCain/Feingold was a good idea?
Is a strict reading of the Constitution still a right-wing ploy? I prefer the founder's version of that document to the current reading which removes our rights one by one.
