Liberals and their pro-corporation views
Now I've seen it all. Daily KOS has a post applauding the Supreme Court's decision to allow government even more power over private property: The city of New London had used its eminent domain power to condemn a large privately-owned piece of land, giving it to a private development corporation for the purposes of economic development. This article almost seems like it was written just because the justice's that opposed this ruling were O'Connor, Thomas, Scalia, and Rehnquist. When the government condems your house just so a new check cashing place can be built remember who stood against big government. When a pristine habitat could have been saved except for this ruling, will the environmentalists applaud Souter, Ginsburg, Kennedy, Breyer, and Stevens. Governments had the right to use eminent domain for public projects before this ruling, now anybody with enough cash to bribe the elected officials have more power than ever. At least most of the commentators at KOS realize this.
