And, of course, the headline was corrected.

It used to be "While in the process of repairing damage from Hurricane Sandy, village board steps in to help a local WWII Vet and grocery store owner. Just kidding, they hit him Eminent Domain so their buddy's can build a new supermarket"


Better than correcting it to read "They hit him with ED", because that would be a hell of a thing to do to the guy.

Weatherkiss: Why does it matter he's a WWII vet?

Oh, right. The appeal to emotion.


Because we fought wars like that to preserve our freedoms, like the right to own property without the threat of government seizure.

what's the point of fighting a war with Germany to prevent them from seizing your property when America will just do it anyways

WWII was the last war the US had to win. Loosing, like in Iraq or Afghanistan, was not an option.


Tightness isn't everything.

With only a little research, I've discovered the root cause: this family owned business actually produced a profit. In america, profits are only meant for corporations, not these "families" and "communities" everyone is always harping about. It takes board members and trustees who will send our dollars away from these places to keep our economy afloat, none of this "social responsibility" crap. Why should one family reap the benefits of a successful business when several thousand corporate goons could use that cash to be job creators in a third world country while simultaneously boosting stock value by nearly one-twentieth of a point!? Won't someone think of the economy!?!

AngryDragon: Darth_Lukecash: I was told that conservative business people hated government interference. You know, small government should let markets decide.

You know that Mayor Robert Cox III of Saltaire, the locality in question, is not only a Democrat and the son of a Democrat, but a 4 term incumbent, right?  I was told that Democrats protect the interests of the little people against corporate and government oppression.

Oops.

Guess Darth got pwnd, badly. What a maroon.

You know that he didn't say "Republican"? "Democrat" and "conservative" are not mutually exclusive.

fta "The repairs that are required due to the flooding ... do not appear to me to be substantial improvements as defined in the Building Code," reads one village-commissioned report.
But the village has variously argued that the damage was so vast that an onerous approval process was needed to rebuild or that the plans submitted by the Whitneys were incomplete.


This is easily solved. Hire an architect or an engineer to survey the property and submit a report. Ta-da.
