Florida town plans to use eminent domainEvilwhiteguy at Sharp as a Marble has a few things to say about this. I agree. Especially his closing comment: "I’m so spitting mad right now……. "
I have a feeling that it won't be long until one or more people 'go postal' over one of these emminent domain thefts. Good people are gonna die, and maybe even some government officials, too! To paraphrase Mayor Michael Brown... If you Do use this power, PEOPLE will die.
Anyone who believes that public good equates to public use in emminent domain is just plain WRONG! This includes some members of the United States Supreme Court. Economics should not be a consideration.

CORRECTION: Above, I attributed a quote to evilwhiteguy at Sharp as a Marble, and it was incorrect... not the quote, the person. That should have been Mr. Allen at Sharp as a Marble. In my haste to properly attribute sources, it appears that Sharp as a Marble is sharper than I am! My apologies to both.
