7. Too damn bad.
If this country is about anything, it is about property. What we have is OURS. We have the right to defend it and no one has a right to take it. (Wasn't this why we opposed communism?) Yeah, yeah, I know this is pretty elastic.....but it should damn well be a right to hold up a developer who's out to make a killing by either selling my land to him for a fortune, or by keeping my home because it's my home.

Since when does a developer's desire to make money take precedence over ownership?

I say we call eminent domain: communism for the rich.
