Brilliant, creative responses by landowners fighting eminent domain seizures by TransCanada Keystone pipeline.
it is ironic that conservatives rail against eminent domain when used to facilitate development in cities but seem to love its use when used to despoil America in the service of big energy.
If you're not rich......
@TM; Hypocrisy personified!
Terry, i'm noticing such rather selective application of laws and standards myself and been wondering about it. There HAS been a noted whining from the Right for decades...some would say, since the Civil Rights Act. An imagined aggrieved plight, a wholly feigned, yet believed, political and cultural victimhood. It suggests a willingness to be dishonest in order to advance their interests, justifying anti-democratic methods as necessary to save the country...er...save themselves, thus aligning themselves with voter suppression and gerrymandeering, Putin, Trump, and "Oligarchs" everywhere. It's getting irritating.
It is funny that for the right, that gun rights cannot be interfered with at all, but for a basic civil right like voting - they go out of their way to impede it.
That darn "internal inconsistency" that has deepened in society, but now has its own plank in the GOP platform. Kosher and others, ourselves, many elsewhere included are all trying to grapple with.
