'Bout time someone made them eat their own feces.

No thought went into this statement. Any resemblence to real thinking is purely coincidental.

As much as I love this guy.
I would rather send $ to individual state efforts to ban such activities, which I understand at a state level if the state bans eminent domain for such purposes that is still legal.

Hardee
I agree it sends a much clearer message but the decision is the decision and will not be changed.
Hf individual states or cities want to do that then the SCOTUS says it is OK.
However, maybe the message will help efforts such as I am suggesting.
There are states that have outright bans on activity as such. Just need to make that all 50 states.

Jay,

I could not have said it better myself! tongue.gif

Sig, Hardrede,

A friend of mine has been following this long before I. He gave me the understanding that the wording of the changes allows a local municipality/govt to override a state ban here. This is third hand to me so if anyone can shed a little light on this aspect please do. If this is the case, backing state efforts may be an effort in futility. Perhaps this would limit things but to what extent. I wonder how this could be applied...say to our hobby...would a local govt be able to allow an individual to have a registered full auto even if the state bans it? I could think of a bunch of ways to apply that. Perhaps one of the more knowledgeable members here can clear this up a bit better than I.

Another thing my friend mentioned is that the outed citizen is supposed to get fair market value (which I have heard is BS...one of my friends got 50+ acres taken on overlook mountain in Woodstock NY and got $55K for an extremely valuable property...to Make a Park!) My friend said that if a company has the zoning changed to commercial on the property they want to steal then the market value will be much less...further screwing the american citizen.

I do not claim to know the best way to figt this type of thing but it sure feels good to see an enemy of the constitution be "forced to eat his own feces". I think it is a perfect, non violent retaliation that sends a clear message. I could only imagine what things would be like if we all jumped on this bandwagon and applied it in a global context. I have always wanted to turn Hillary's house into a rod and gun club!

What should we do here...take a collection and send a donation from all of us on the board? Just send individual donations? Do nothing? I think we need to get behind this and back him up...as long as he is not going to buy beer with the money and a new car.

Oh the possibilities! wink.gif

I agree - I love the spirit of this guy.

This "ruling" is a travesty of our legal system and gives big business limitless power over the little guy. I cannot believe there are no checks and balances installed here.






Shit... am I sounding like a liberal? ph34r.gif

In regard to state and local laws in conflict, a local law may be more restrictive than a state law, but the rule is state law trumps local law. If the state outlaws smoking in eating establishments, a city can carry it further by outlawing in bars as well. But a local ordinance allowing smoking sections in resturants would violate state law and be struck down in court. I don't foresee this ever changing. Sorry, Damon.

That is fucking b-e-a-utiful. I also heard on the news that the government will stop federal money to states that will take the land for profitable reasons, not highways or schools, but things like hotels and malls. I'm looking more into that one.

Let's build a consortium to turn the Kennedy compound in Hyannisport into an IDPA and IPSC convention center. What fun blasting targets in one of Teddy's playrooms after another. Tax me by the round, I'll pay. I'm sure it would turn into an NRA pilgrimage and the fine folks of Hyannisport will rake in the tax revenue.

Logan Darrow Clements is a true American patriot. We should all support him and all like him. Here are two additional articles, the first an interview, which further fleshes this out.

In this second article it has been suggested that Walmart should be interested in developing the other United States Supreme Court Justices houses/ properties. Woo-Hoo, I'm all for that!!! biggrin.gif cool.gif
