This week's "What The Fuck?!" moment.

From the Associated Press -

"The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled that local governments may seize people's homes and businesses, even against their will, for private economic development."

So let me see if I get this. I own a home. I've owned for 25 years. I've made the mortgage payments on it and paid property tax. I've raised my children in this home. This is MY home. My local corrupt elected official decides that Kwiki-Mart, in exchange for supplying him with booze, drugs and underage boys, can bulldoze my house against my will without any compensation, all in the name of capitalism.

Would someone please tell me what is going on with this country?

....more to the point....
there is now a power
for representatives in government
to exercise their interpretation
of just what
might be more proffitable...
to the community at large

as a debtor nation....
isn't this a bit like
sending a "second story man"
to locksmith school...
with our own money?

make the fucker climb, I say
there's been no shortage of carpet bagging
do we need to hold the door for them, too?

This is our elected officials at work for our best interests!!! We have becoma a nation of followers, we no longer think for ourselves. If people would quit worrying about a war, the price of gas, and this other BS they drop on us each morning to distract us as they go about the old shell games, then maybe taking a look at the paper and reading,stop and listen to what the news just said. We need to go back to the sixties and have a few off the wall common leaders to stand up and speak out and grab the nations attention. What was up held yesterday is the first steps of a democratice society moving into the realm of a dictatorship. Those with the make make the laws and they say how they will be enforced. Did we forget that our votes and our voices put these idiots in office.

Take a stand and rise up and listen then speak, but be very careful for speaking out may soon be a freedom no longer covered by the constitution and may get your stuff taken away. Come on folks make them earn their money doing what we ask them to in order for thwm to keep representing us and getting that cushy salary and all those special interest perks.

Just my opinion but I may be out of line, but I am a supporter of the George Carlin phylosophy anyway, so fuck them all. My house, my guns, my money. Come for it and come prepared.

Yesterday Is History, Tomorrow a Mystery, and Today a Gift. That's why we call it The Present.
