THE STROKE OF A PEN

The Supreme Court of the United States, with a stroke of a pen last week effectively rejected one of the most fundamental constitutional freedoms guaranteed to all citizens: the right to own property. We have got to stop them now.
Before this ruling the government could only step in and seize property if it was needed for public projects, road building, parks, and development of public entities such as hospitals.

Today, with the Supreme Court ruling, the government may seize the home, small business, or other private property of one citizen and transfer it to another private citizen if the transfer would boost the community economic development. Simply put, this means your house could be replaced with a shopping mall.

We must fight for our civil rights so that we may continue to celebrate our freedom - or what is left of it. Our parental rights, our civil rights, our human rights are all being stripped away. How much more do we have to lose before the people of this nation will rise up and speak out against the abuse of power over the innocent in Berrien County, in the State of Michigan, in the United States? WE THE PEOPLE MUST STOP THIS NOW !

"Man of God" you got to be kidding me. Puckney is nothing of a man of god. He is a man of criminal activity that forces people out of office by paying people and being deciteful. You need to find another man of god because if you think Pickney is then you have a major problem. Think before you write...

Well, that has nothing to do with the post by Mr. Pinkney.

Anyway, this is an issue almost everyone can agree on. However, it's not going to be easy for municipalities to do this. The decision essentially makes it possible for a government to "buy out" the last holdover of a possible development through seizure and paying market value for the property. At issue is whether or not one landowner can stall new development simply by refusing to sell.

That's the nuts and bolts. However, a slippery slope might be created with this. We must be on guard.
