Things that government should not have the power to do, #2

Imminent Domain. 

The use of imminent domain for private developers is a lunatic abuse of power that the members of the Supreme Court should be ashamed of.  At the time I suggested that we use imminent domain to seize all of their houses for use as homeless shelters.  Someone did attempt to seize Souter's house, but failed.

The fact that the private developer has abandoned the cornerstone Supreme Court case is mad irony.  Everyone involved in seizing Ms Kelo and her neighbors' homes should be thrown out of their homes and run out of the country.
