Out of 47444 votes on MSNBCs live poll on the issue, 97% say it's unfair. I think there will be a backlash on this one.
What I don't understand is why people keep voting the corporate kapos into office that create a political environment that makes Washington folk think this kind of thing is OK.
What does it take to make people wake up and realize the government in Washington does NOT care about us, and voting the same shleps into office will just get us more of the same? This may have been an action by the Supreme Court, but it's reflective of everything that's wrong in our government right now.

Another "Wow!". What I dont get is why you assume the government could be corrupt but the voting system maintains its integrity?
The recent Presidential elections were not endorsed as irregularity free by foreign independent monitors. There is more than enough evidence of voter fraud and electronic voting machines deleting votes.
Who says these guys are being voted in???
About a decade ago a family that my parent were friends with had their house marked for Eminent Domain because of a freeway project. Because of how fair market value is calulated they received almost twice as must as they paid for the home. The family was going to fight the project until they found out how much they were going to get for the house. I know that some people are really attached to their homes but from another view this can also be a financial boost for many families.
Here's some more information on the Eminent Domain process:
I’m not disagreeing with you AWingAndASigh. Just pointing out that what seems like a horrible thing at first can turn out to be a blessing in disguise for some families.
