Silver here.  Some high and tight fastballs from ace pitcher Life have brushed me back from the blogging plate for a while.  Claire’s gracious invitation convinced me to step back in the box.

The video is a great example of a gaffe – when a politician tells the truth.  Once upon a time it was rare to see such open contempt of citizens and their property from parasites elected officials.

Sandy Greyson finds it infuriating that the city cannot simply take this man’s land. It isn’t fair to the city that this man has enough money to defend his property in court.  “Ordinary people” (her words) can’t afford to fight the city, which makes everything so much easier.


Background to this story.   This infuriating land owner had the gall to use provisions of Texas law to defend his land.  Infuriating!

    Well, all property belongs to Dallas, you know – and the homeowner is just in the way. Typical collectivist attitude!

    How soon do you think somebody from Dallas will try to change the Texas cemetery law?

    Heck we’re just paying rent with our taxes to live on the land anyway, aren’t we? So why can’t THEY take it back when THEY want?

    For that matter isn’t our take home pay whatever THEY decide they don’t want back in taxes to start with? Isn’t the money all THEIRS, it does say “The United States of America” on it doesn’t it, don’t THEY own it, so aren’t THEY just lending it to us for our use as THEY allow?

    Heck as long as we got beer, buds, NFL, chips & dips, Nike, GM, smart phones, the internet, etc that THEY let us have as THEY see fit, what else do we really need?

    Another reason I don’t live in a big city where I can’t reach out and touch my city council.
