Your reading assignment for the day
Posted by: McQ on Monday, June 04, 2007

If you are interested in eminent domain discussions and examples of abuse as well as examples of how citizens can beat the powerful purveyors of eminent domain, The Iconic Midwesterner has done some excellent first-hand reporting based on an interview with Phillip Klein. Who is Phillip Klein? He's the director/producer of a documentary called "Begging for Billionaires: a documentary about eminent domain".

Well worth the read.

I was amazed, surprised and frightened when the Supreme Court handed down the original decision allowing property to be seized for commercial purposes. Considering it’s ruling in the campaign finance case I should not have been, but I erroneously thought they would uphold the constitution. Wrong!

We have the best politicians money can buy. The sad thing is their prices are so low. There is only one answer for this, vote them out of office. Nail a couple of the SOB’s and that will get their attention.

The saddest thing is the action of the press. I can’t imagine holding off on a story or kissing political ass to assure access. I would have never done it and I can be sure none of the journalists of my time would have. If city officials tried to play the access card, we would have jumped on them like a dog on a bone. The best was to get a story covered or a photo taken is to tell the journalist they can’t cover that. It’s actions like this that make me glad I left the profession in the late 80’s when it became apparent news was changing into entertainment.
