Who'll stop the reign.........of the eminence front's attack against the 5th Amendment?
A good TX senator of course. Senator Cornyn introduces:
...... legislation Monday in response to a controversial ruling by the United States Supreme Court in Kelo v City of New London. In a 5-4 decision, the Court held that government may seize the home, small business, or other private property of one owner and transfer that same property to another private owner, simply by concluding that such a transfer would benefit the community through increased economic development. The Cornyn legislation would prohibit such transfers of private property, without the owner's consent, if federal funds were used, and if the transfer was for purposes of economic development rather than public use.
"It is appropriate for Congress to take action, consistent with its limited powers under the Constitution, to restore the vital protections of the Fifth Amendment and to protect homes, small businesses, and other private property rights against unreasonable government use of the power of eminent domain," Cornyn said.

I hope the new bill doesn't get signed into law until after The Lost Liberty Hotel is completed on what used to be Justice Souter's property.
