Kelo 2.0

If you loved the SCOTUS Kelo decision this summer, you ain't seen nothin' yet:

RIVIERA BEACH, Fla., Oct. 4 (UPI) -- Officials of a poor, predominantly black Florida town plan to relocate about 6,000 residents to make room for a billion-dollar yachting and housing complex.

The coastal community of Rivera Beach in Palm Beach County may use eminent domain, if necessary, to claim 400 acres of land for the project, The Washington Times reported Monday.

"This is a community that's in dire need of jobs, which has a median income of less than $19,000 a year," Mayor Michael Brown said. "If we don't use this power, cities will die."

Great. Fantastic. Evict 6,000 people to build a fricking YACHT CLUB! I don't know about you, but this does not seem to me like a "public use" as specified in the US Constitution. Just another fun result of the "living constitution" BS that liberal judges keep trying to feed us. If the result of a "living constitution" is that it allows us to redefine its terms as we see fit, I'd like mine dead as a doornail, please. What happened to sticking up for the "little guy?" He's just been run over by a YACHT and nobody even let out a peep of protest. Disgusting.
