I am now a simple Grandpa who's life is made richer as each grandchild is born. My wife and I have raised five children and the 30 year love labor of raising them has begun to yield sweet fruit..... And then there are fruits of 30 years in ministry ... I am a satisfied old man full of the joy of the Lord.

Kelo Decision Vs. Animal Rights Vs. Slavery

Although the Supreme Court has steamrolled over our property rights secured through the blood of the American Revolution, animal rights are increasing. The court can take mere human property at will but the birds get an environmental impact statement and evaluation that is very difficult to over rule.

We loose our freedom that comes from the private ownership of land and find ourselves at the whim of some bought off judiciary in the future. This is the way slavery is instituted. If you cannot own property to live on, it is only a matter of time until you become someone's slave to work their property. The founders of the country knew this but the judges of this land have forgotten it. If you cannot own property, you cannot be free.

When the birds, fish, and animals are protected and human beings are put out into the street at the discretion of an unelected official working for Pepsi Cola something is really screwed up. That something is the law schools of this land. They teach relative truth. Case law instead of constitutional law. The king (Supreme Court) has become law once again instead of the Constitution being the king that rules over all of us. I am outraged.

You can read Justice Thomas dissent of this latest travesty of justice here. It is a great read.
I pray that there will be such a great howl go up from the blog world that it will be heard around the world.

I wonder if the outrage over this decision isn't a bit overblown. After all, there have always been ways for one's property rights to be abridged (adverse possession, for example).

Use it or lose it is the principle of adverse possession; one could probably characterize Kelo as an extension of that.
