The tense stand-off between hundreds of protesters and police has ended in the Nevada desert, forcing the authorities to cancel the round-up of 300 animals and to return the cattle to their owner.
The standoff between rancher Cliven Bundy and the US Bureau of Land Management has lasted over a week, after hundreds of armed agents with the United States Bureau of Land Management and the FBI turned up in the Clark County to execute the court-ordered confiscation of nearly 1,000 cattle. The US government says the animals have trespassed on federal property.

LMAO!!! The rights to own property goes much further than cows!!! Yep, go ahead and push your socialist agenda, you will lose more than you want!!!
Cities may seize homes for economic development, court rules
Associated Press | June 23, 2005
By Hope Yen
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court ruled today that local governments may seize people's homes and businesses — even against their will — for private economic development.
It was a decision fraught with huge implications for a country with many areas, particularly the rapidly growing urban and suburban areas, facing countervailing pressures of development and property ownership rights.
The 5-4 ruling represented a defeat for some Connecticut residents whose homes are slated for destruction to make room for an office complex. They argued that cities have no right to take their land except for projects with a clear public use, such as roads or schools, or to revitalize blighted areas.
As a result, cities now have wide power to bulldoze residences for projects such as shopping malls and hotel complexes in order to generate tax revenue. Local officials, not federal judges, know best in deciding whether a development project will benefit the community, justices said.
"The city has carefully formulated an economic development that it believes will provide appreciable benefits to the community, including — but by no means limited to — new jobs and increased tax revenue,'' Justice John Paul Stevens wrote for the majority.
He was joined by Justice Anthony Kennedy, David H. Souter, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Stephen G. Breyer.
At issue was the scope of the Fifth Amendment, which allows governments to take private property through eminent domain if the land is for "public use.''
Susette Kelo and several other homeowners in a working-class neighborhood in New London, Conn., filed suit after city officials announced plans to raze their homes for a riverfront hotel, health club and offices.
New London officials countered that the private development plans served a public purpose of boosting economic growth that outweighed the homeowners' property rights, even if the area wasn't blighted.
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, who has been a key swing vote on many cases before the court, issued a stinging dissent. She argued that cities should not have unlimited authority to uproot families, even if they are provided compensation, simply to accommodate wealthy developers.
The lower courts had been divided on the issue, with many allowing a taking only if it eliminates blight.
"Any property may now be taken for the benefit of another private party, but the fallout from this decision will not be random,'' O'Connor wrote. "The beneficiaries are likely to be those citizens with disproportionate influence and power in the political process, including large corporations and development firms.''
She was joined in her opinion by Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, as well as Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas.

Oh, when she was 15 y/o she ran away and I had to go to Paris, France to pick her up. Yep, she was a wild one.

I know a guy that can calculate asteroid trajectories in his head, that can't manage to cross town.

No higher knowledge is needed to run an office. Your sister may be ultra bright and circumstance may be all that stands between her and a breakthrough in the medical field. But office work isn't rocket surgery.

If she made it all the way to Paris at 15, I am sure she could have run an office by 17.

I am willing to wager I would find her far more engaging than Dale.

Exactly my point.

No one owns land in America.

Eminent Domain was established in the 5th amendment. THAT is why deeds here are written to "tenants".

Dale seems to think I am in FAVOR of this shit because I recognize it as reality.

I think it would be a far better world if people would take a little time to try and defeat their own ideas instead of clinging to whatever makes them feel better.

I have a few deeds. To Dale, it is a source of pride that he has land... and that is what is causing interference in his cortex.

For a man not to recognize when he is paying rent because he doesn't want to is silly.

He will run semantics that he pays "tax" not "rent"... but if the land is his... what the hell is he paying "taxes" on?

I have never been walking down the street with a coke and have someone ask me for 8 cents.

Yet, he would rather believe land is the same thing. You feel free when you have property, it is hard to swallow that you just upgraded landlords. Give him a few years.

Uncle Sam: "Excuse me there Dale... is that a soda in your hand?"

Dale: "Booyhowdy! Sure is, picked myself up a Pepsi back there at the Waa Waa."

Uncle Sam: "Hey... congratulations. I am going to need 8 cents."

Dale: "Uhh, for what?"

Uncle Sam: "Well, that soda."

Dale: "But, I bought this soda. I paid for it with my own money!"

Uncle Sam: "I can relate to your position, but I am still going to need 8 cents."

Dale: "What the hell are you talking about? What is mine is mine."

Uncle Sam: "Well, you say that.... but I am going to need 8 cents for you to continue to possess that Pepsi."

Dale: "You mean you are going to take it from me if I don't pay you 8 cents?"

Uncle Sam: "Indeed, think of it as a 'tax'."

Dale: "Well, umm... I didn't expect... you kinda caught me without funds... I had no idea that..."

Uncle Sam: "No worries, you can just leave that here with me until you go grab some money and we will square up when you get back."

Dale: "Oh, ok. Be right back."

Uncle Sam: "Ok, but...go fast... cause it is hot out and someone may pay the 8 cents before you get back."

Dale: "WHAT? Didn't I pay taxes when I bought the damn thing?"

Uncle Sam: "Shut up, Dale."

Dale: "Fine... brb."

Why do Democrats always throw out the Race Card, Sex Card, Homo Card, etc. when ever someone starts talking about ObamaCare?

Democrat Alabama State Representative Alvin Holmes just made his controversial rant in which he claimed that white Republicans would support abortion if their daughter became pregnant by black man even more weird. After Holmes made that outrageous statement on the floor of the Alabama House, he vow to sell his house and bring $100,000 in a briefcase if anyone proved him wrong.

Some time later, Jeremy and Beverly Owings organized at the Alabama House. The protesters consisted of white families in Alabama who had adopted black babies. They demanded that Holmes honor his bet and pay up. Holmes would not respond to media inquiries on that day. However, he did offer a response when he called into a radio show that had the host, the Owens, the listeners, and now people across the nation scratching their heads.

Yep, and if Dirty Hairy Reed wants to give some cattle grazing range to some Chinese to built a solar power farm on, so be it. It is amazing that a person starts into politics nearly broke and now all his family members are millionaires?

I like to remind her I had to go to Paris to pick her up. We were stationed near Frankfurt, Germany and she and another 15 y/o girl hopped a train to Paris. Well, they did not have much money and did not take their passports so it was not long before the gendarms picked them up.
We got a call from our provost marshal who had been called by ........ Interpol! The problem is generals do not like MP blotter reports so I sent my daughter to live with my sister in Dallas. When we went to Germany she was a Valley Girl fur sure, like gag me with a spoon and all but in Germany she went Gothic but by the time I picked her up after spending six months in Dallas, she had turned into a, oh my gawd, a Texas Cowgirl. Yep, she was a Wild One!

Yep, did he commit treason or is he a patriot. Maybe a little of both. I say let him stay in Russia for a few years and see if Obama will pardon him like Bill Clinton did for Marc Rich!

Jacques,
Chicago Tribune is reporting that there were 36 shootings in the Windy City over the weekend.
It is early April and spring has only just begun.
You don't see headlines like that on the New York Times.
I can't even remember the last time there was a shootiing in my village, it has been so long ago.
