The New London, CT. eminent domain case arose a few years ago. After reading about it, I lost sleep over it that night, even though I've never been to New London, and don't know anyone there. The Supreme Court decision to allow the city to rob you of your house, and even charge you rent on your own property, so that it can give it to a big, powerful private corporation, is disturbing indeed. San Leandro, California pulled the same stunt a few years ago, putting long time local shops and industries out of business, so that their property could be given to a bunch of car dealers.
Congress should pass a law making it illegal to force a property owner, against his will,to give his property to a private person or entity, especially if the property has belonged to the same person or family for generations, as was the case in both New London and San Leandro.
