15 Nov 2005 Maxine Waters Has It Right
From the November 15 Wall Street Journal:
Post-Kelo, conservatives made the case that the Supreme Court’s ruling was a dangerous interpretation of the Constitution’s takings clause. Now some liberals are catching on. “We don’t need you on this one,” said California Congressman Maxine Waters in response to critics who argued that urban renewal projects depend on eminent domain. “We need you to respect the right of those minorities and those poor people to hold on to what is their own.”
I posted this because I really do agree with Maxine Waters; I emphasize that fact now because this is one of the few times I ever have.
