Public Good?

SCROTUM, ...sorry.

SCOTUS made an absolutely tragic mistake today and ruled that cities could take private property and hand it over to developers under eminent domain.

The ruling doesn't seem to indicate that it's been proving that governments having more money is a good thing. Not only is this a precedent for cities to capriciously take whatever property they want and hand it over to wealthy developers, by extension it says that government should have as much money as it can get its hands on by whatever means possible.

I am thoroughly digusted by this ruling.

Congress really needs to step up and overturn this ruling.
