Eminent Domain Decision In Progress.

Sonoma Valley Hospital will be discussing using eminent domain to acquire property at a meeting tomorrow.

Here is the number for their main switchboard: 707-935-5000.

Information on hospital services and programs: Call 707-935-5005 or email:

Let them know what you think of land thieves today. Maybe it will make them think twice about becoming one.

CNN has no clue what politics are.

Yesterday we had a US Supreme Court decision that for all practical purposes ended private property in America in any meaningful sense.

You would think CNN could find time on their expanded 90-minute "Inside Politics" to discuss the fact.

But nope. Not a peep. Literally, not one mention. Not even on either "Inside the Blogs" segment. One would think the blogosphere was silent on the matter yesterday. But one would be wrong.

So what DID CNN:Inside Politics cover yesterday? Well, for one thing, they dedicated three seperate segments, including one entire "Inside the Blogs" segment, for a total of seven minutes and ten seconds (which is almost 10% of the entire show), on the disappearance of that girl in Aruba.

No, there wasn't a breaking news event about the story. In fact, there was nothing new to report at all. It was a "Developing Story" event in which they simply repeated over and over again that a judge, the father of one of the boys arrested, had also been arrested, which they had already told us about when it WAS Breaking News, before Inside Politics started.

Don't get me wrong. I feel bad for the girl's family.

But this is politics . . . how, exactly?

post-America day 1.

Until a federal Constitutional amendment happens, we're stuck with land theft, make that eminent domain. So what can an individual do about it?

We can start by driving companies that engage in eminent domain into bankrupcy. What are these companies? Well, I've started a list on Wikispaces, called Land Thieves. You're all welcome to add land rustlers to the list, as long as you provide links to both the company's website and to a news article (or other reputable source) about it's attempt to rustle land.

What else can we do? We can kick elected officials who support eminent domain out of office -- give campaign donations to, and actively campaign for, their opponents. If necessary, run for the office yourself so you can make eminent domain abuse a central issue to the campaign.

Go to city council meetings and bring up the issue as often as they will let you.

If your Congressman or Senator supports a Federal Marriage Amendment, a good question to ask him or her is, "You have indicated your support for a federal Constitutional amendment protecting the sanctity of the American institution of marriage. What do you plan to do to protect the American institution of private property rights?"

And if you're a target of eminent domain, draw it out in court as long as possible, hopefully until after the next election in which those trying to take your land are running. Run, or have a better candidate run, against them. Show up at their campaign events and ask them what part of "Thou Shalt Not Steal" don't they understand?

Ride your city council's ass until they pass an ordinance prohibiting the city from using eminent domain, or put the measure on the ballot. Do the same with your county and state legislatures.

And for your federal lawmakers, demand a Constitutional amendment prohibiting eminent domain from being exercised anywhere in the country. By phone. By email. By snail mail. In person. Every day if you have to.

And somehow get Ron Paul, or someone else who understands the role of government in a supposedly free society, on the US Supreme Court.

But until full property rights are restored, the America you thought you lived in is effectively over. It died yesterday. You are now living in post-America, or, as I said yesterday . . .

And *I* felt strange about eating the worm in the tequila-flavored lollipop I had when I was in high-school.

Welcome to the U.S.S.A.

Life. Liberty. Property.
The Supreme Court today effectively expanded the right of local governments to seize private property under eminent domain, ruling that people's homes and businesses -- even those not considered blighted -- can be taken against their will for private development if the seizure serves a broadly defined "public use."

And now we bring you a quote from the Communist Manifesto:

In this sense, the theory of the Communists may be summed up in the single sentence: Abolition of private property.

It is time to hold our elected officials' feet to the fire on this one. Americans should demand a Constitutional amendment abolishing the exercise of eminent domain. We should ask of every office seeker "I want a yes or no answer on this; is the exercise of the power of eminent domain EVER justified?" and if they answer yes, let them know they've lost our vote. We should demand local ordinances preventing our cities, counties and all governmental entities never exercise the power of eminent domain. We should send letter after letter to the editor of our local newspaper.

What part of "Thou Shalt Not Steal" don't they understand?

As an aside, I found a great eminent domain blog here.

    Let My Testicles Go!

    Read the saga of poor Testicles (pronounced like 'Pericles') here.

    “Testaclese” tipped the scales when he approached the university Provost, Edward J. Kavanagh, outside the student union. Apparently taking him/it for a giant mushroom, Provost Kavanagh cheerfully greeted him. But when Testaclese presented him with an honorary award as a campus “Penis Warrior,” the stunned official realized that it was no mushroom. After this incident, which was recorded on videotape, the promoters of P-Day were ordered to cease circulating their flyers and to keep Testaclese off campus grounds. Mindful of how school officers had never once protested any of the antics of Vagina warriors, the P-warriors did not comply. The Testaclese costume was then confiscated and formal charges followed.

    It seems someone has locked up the poor Testicles of the Penis Warriors. Perhaps in Hillary Clinton's lockbox.

    Note to whomever decided on the spelling of the name -- Pericles is not Peraclese, and Testicles is not Testacles.
