Given we live in a nation where government can take land simply for the sake of increasing the money flowing into government. None of us knows the moment we might be forcibly removed from our property and given a check, even if we never wanted the check. Folks in Arlington Heights, Illinois are learning that “blighted” in their town means, we had to make up something in order to bring in that new Super Target. Eminent domain abuse continues. But the good people of this town have not given up the fight and are still fighting things out in court. You know, the courts, the place that approved eminent domain abuse in the first place .
(One of the businesses being forced out is named XSport Fitness.)
XSport Fitness appeals redevelopment ruling
I was contacted by one of the folks fighting against this abuse in Arlington Heights. I asked them to send me pictures of this supposedly “blighted” area, so that I could show you how it really looks. They directed me to the blog WindyPundit, that has been covering this issue for some time. There I found a link to 90 pictures of the area. Have a look at the pictures yourself. It probably looks a lot like a shopping area in your neighborhood, maybe better. And if it happened to them, it can happened to you.
You can see from those pictures, they are not some run-down crime ridden area in need of any form of redevelopment that might make the place better. It’s a regular shopping area, that some in government simply felt was not profitable enough for government greed.
