Kelo Fallout....

I expect we will be seeing many more reports like this one:

Unjust and un-American indeed.
Most children learn the right lesson much better than the 5 who supported theft in Keno and, in fact, better than the founders:
The most important fact in all this childhood drama was simply that I wanted something that was not mine, and without the consent of the owner, nothing I could do would make that thing morally mine, and as long as my parents were my parents, nothing I could do would make it physically mine, either.
A constitution that respects individuals will not contain a takings clause but rather it is clear that it needs to be a blocking clause something along the line of
nor shall private property be taken for public use, without the consent of the owner.
The mafia might object but not an entity intended to protect its citizens.
