How do you guys feel about the Supreme Court's decision to allow the government to seize homes?

the day they take my house, I'm calling up Jesse and we're marching.  No justice, no peace!

Granted, I'm not his biggest fan, but wouldn't he be the last person you'd want to call?

I mean, keep in mind that four justices who voted against this were the more conservative appointees - Rehnquist, O'Connor, Scalia, & Thomas

Of the five who voted for it, four of the five are clearly of the moderate/progressive bent - Stevens, Souter, Ginsberg & Breyer.

I was surprised by Scalia's vote in this instance.

My point is is that it wasn't people who thought like Jesse Jackson who voted for this measure.... quite the opposite actually.

I used to be very liberal, but as I've gotten older and accumulated a few dollars and things to my name, I'm definitely become more centrist.  If I buy a piece of property, I d@mn straight to keep it until I decide otherwise.  It seems to me that it was majority liberal types who want to take it from me.
