Property Rights Bomb

A heavily divided Supreme Court has rendered a decision in KELO et al. v. CITY OF NEW LONDON et al. which basically gives government free reign to take property for any reason at all. Essentially, they said that if government perceives ANY benefit to the community (specifically increases in tax revenue in KELO) they have the right to take your property. I am reading both the Local Liberty Blog and Powerline for their insight. I also intend to throw in my local government 2 cents worth this weekend.
