Default Thats Just Not Right

How would you feel if your home was taken away from you so that the county could build a football stadium for a fat cat owner. Guess it just proves that you never really own your home, just renting it from the government.

Before justifying this action, what if it were your home and you didn't want to sell?

Take my home Jerruh, I know you need it..

The vote was taken without any discussion by the council. Eminent domain issues were on a closed session agenda earlier in the day. None of the affected property owners signed up to speak.
Sounds like they're not too worried about having their homes bought out.

If it were my home and I didn't want to sell, then I guess I'd be going to court. And with the building the of the stadium pretty much inevitable, I guess I'd use that as leverage to get as much as I could from the county if they wanted my property.

That the spineless government officials hid behind closed doors is no surprise. And I think the property owners will be heard from, via their lawyers.

So in the words of Bobby Knight, the best thing to do is just "lay back & enjoy it". I think most Americans would agree with you & resign themselves to just that.

Really not much of a choice even prior to the recent Supreme Court eminent domain fiasco. Most of the stadiums around the league are "owned" by the city, county, some government entity and leased to the teams. That would have flown as public use before. So long as it is a public use the only thing you can fight over is how much they pay you.
