The Common Good ?

Here are a few things to mull over. None are directly linked but they are like the clouds of a gathering storm.

By now most of the literate non-apathetics in America are aware of the SCOTUS decision yesterday concerning eminent domain. The vote went along political affiliation lines. Liberals for, Conservatives against.

But who can claim to be surprised. Recall that not so long ago we had the Hillary blurb that"

"Many of you are well enough off that ... the tax cuts may have helped you," Clinton said, according to the Associated Press. "We're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short and not give it to you.

"We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."

There it is. And for a bit of gratuitous hitlerism.. this is her 'Mein Kampf'. Why are we surprised about yesterday's decision? The alpha-liberals have revealed the progressive's vision for America.

Then it was not too long ago the Lord Kerry-Heinz had a religious experience and preached a sermon alluding to the greed of Republicans when they take from the poor to give to the rich.

"'I went back and reread the whole New Testament the other day. Nowhere in the three-year ministry of Jesus Christ did I find a suggestion at all, ever, anywhere, in any way whatsover, that you ought to take the money from the poor, the opportunities from the poor and give them to the rich people,' Kerry said."

Remember that little idea liberals were trying to plant during the election about how a vote for Bush ( conservatives ) was a vote against their own self-interest? Remember how Democrats are the party of the little guy, the working class, the oppressed ?

Who was protecting the interest of the 'little guy' yesterday. Who was advocating taking money and opportunities from the poor yesterday?

Just mull that over.....
