WALL STREET JOURNAL "EMINENT REALITY"

People on the blogsite might be interested in reading the following:

The Opinion page (P. A16) of THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, Wednesday, January 30, 2008, "Eminent Reality".

The article addresses the question--does restricting the power of government to seize private property harm economic growth? A recently issued report from the Institute of Justice examined the evidence and concluded the answer was no. There are a few examples in the article that support the Institute of Justice position, which challenges the economic claims made by those supporting "eminent domain".

We care!

Just nothing to debate with such a truth!

Even Ewbank and friends would not try utilizing such a loophole to give this county to Maxwell in the current political climate!

Have you met Bob Ewbank? Remember, he and Lisa Lehner created the DCRSD to raid our pockets for Maxwell and Company.

Who will be this year's "Linkmeyer," if I may ask?

Don't you mean Linkmeyers? They will need to run two development shills to make up for Fox and Hughes' loss in the primary.

Afraid of what a little scrutiny may lop on your lap?

Do keep paying attention. Sometimes it is much less painful to know the person who will thrust our last death blow. Bleed out quick. We have little time to make things right once again. Thanks to your lowly workings.

Do keep lecturing us all on what you do not comprehend.

Vote the Fox and Hughes' ticket.

Do us all a favor.

Don't confuse us with your originality of thought or ethics.

You wait for May? Why?

Thomson is in. Did it matter? No.

Will it matter if someone else is in for Fox/Hughes? Maybe.

Everyone has a conflict of interest. Pretend you don't and you are a bigger whore than is appaerent to the public.

Someone, throw a dollar or two to these development leeches, maybe they will slither and slime away. Give them their little victory. Let them think they pick-pocketed a few of our dollars. Whatever makes them feel special.

Yeah, that Thompson is such an awful man.

Not kowtowing and blowing the next and more important development interest waiting in line to attach our savings to feed their personal greed!

St. Leon sewers...the dcrsd...the dcedi...vieste...all the dollars wasted by crooked lawyers putting together all the "legal" or "extra-legal" documents to support such thievery...

Anonymous said...

Viesta was only a waste of money because people cried about a study that wasn't even completed. They were all scared of the truth. I-74 should be the economic growth for Dearborn County.

So instead of saying the money was wasted because of developers/realtors I think we need to say it was wasted because of the uneducated people of the county, or better yet the no-growth groups.

Anonymous said...

"...because of the uneducated people of the county..."

Yeah!

We are all stupid and uneducated if we do not follow your lead!

Vieste blew chunks because it was not oriented to benefiting the County as a whole, but a driving force to benefiting a handful of politically connected Countians at the rest of this County's expense!

Hence the secrecy in trying to buy up land from fellow Countians to enrich the politically connected Countians!

But keep trying!

We all enjoy the smoke pouring out from your ears as you "thinkacate!"

The N.W. Quad was only valuable to the dcedi few if they could utilize their inside knowledge to buy up our farm land at farm land prices, then laying in wait until their political butt boys pushed to have it rezoned to commercial use. Screw the dcedi and their vieste lobbying franchise.

The DCEDI and VIESTE played our dim-witted Benning, Fox and Hughes for the absolute backwater dumb asses that they proved to be.

Ewbank and Lehner sure know how to pick the dumbest from the dumb to fit their and their clients' needs!

If some of us would have tossed a few more quarters in the charity cups of Vera and her friends, maybe they would not have tried to sell this county out to the highest bidders. Think about that. Be more free with your quarters in the future. Or at least, in the future, pretend that the next group of political nit-wits are somehow more vastly important than their resumes surely suggest.

Let us just refer to these certain and particular developers/realtors, or should I say, our certain dishonest and a certain minority of developers/realtors in this county, who have proven to be beyond redemption and hope.

Let us all work hard in excising these vermin from any political significance in this County.

Vote for the anemic team of Fox and Hughes, if you find some satisfaction in lining the pockets of the same ole…same ole…in this once honest and respectful county.

The money was wasted because the process left out the most important factor- THE CITIZENS and what THEY want. This cry baby approach to the NW Quad is disturbing. It shows no creativity. So there is flat land there. You don't have to be on top of an interstate- just reasonably close with good road access. Start thinking about land that doesn't have such good farming attributes. Or old time family ties. Or no desire to sell.
Start thinking about businesses here who want to expand. Start thinking about what we have and what could spin off from that.
And for heaven's sake start thinking about our schools and what the workforce needs in educational backgrounds.
Make it nice for residents and more will come.
What kind of influx do you really want?
