    May I point out to Scott Stantis that it was the ever so conservative wing of the US Supreme Court that stripped our property rights when it affirmed that the city of New Haven, CT had the right to seize private property for commercial development. Seizing private property isn’t intrusive gobernmant, it’s kleptocracy - theft by the ruling party.

    Um… excuse me tincan674? From the Washington Post, June 24, 2005 regarding the 5-4 decision: “O’Connor was joined in her dissent by Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist and Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas.”

    The 4 Conservatives dissented; it was the 5 LIBERALS on the court that supported the kleptocracy of the Democrat ruling party in Connecticut.

    Everybody knows the ever-so-conservative wing of the Supreme Court is led by Ruth Bader Ginsburg!

    Thanks for the accurate info, JosephR4570. But there’s one more thing that tincan674 needs to be set straight on: the city was New LONDON, not New Haven, CT. The case was Kelo v. New London. I’ll bet tincan doesn’t even know that 2 of the dissenting justices are no longer on the court, much less which way they all voted.
