For John, BLUF: Well, at least I hope it is fixed. Kelo was a terrible Supreme Court decision, allowing government to transfer one person's property to another person. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The American Thinker by Mr Rick Moran, 25 July 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
In 2004, the Supreme Court ruled, in the Kelo v. City of New London decision, that eminent domain could be used to seize private property from one owner and give it to another in the name of "economic development." It remains one of the most controversial decisions the court has made this century.I approve.
Yesterday, Congress belatedly addressed the troubling issues raised by the decision by passing the Private Property Rights Protection Act. As Ed Morrissey at Hot Air points out, no major media outlets covered this seminal issue regarding the rights of citizens to be secure in their property.
