There is no council meeting until July 14. We are safe, except for the Schwab, till then.
So last week we all got to bid our Fifth Amendment Rights goodby. The Supremes in a 5-4 decision told us all that what we have worked for, what we thought was ours, is not. Your home, your business'or your land no longer belongs to you. It belongs to the goverment. You may live on it and you may pay your taxes on it, but its not yours.
Any developer that wants your land for Miguels, Lowes or Staters may have it. We might even put a library there so we can have the public use clause to help the developer take your house.Not to worry. Your going to get fair market value for the years of your life that went into your home. They are going to pay you for the memories of raising your children in your home. They are going to pay you for the memories and heartbreak of caring for your parents until they passed away in the home they left you.
Don't look to Congress to start impeachment proceeding against the activist jurists. They would rather fight among themselves than for their constituents. We must except deviant life styles in the name of political correctness. We even allow it to be taught in our schools. In Califorina the schools may put your children on mind altering drugs, prescribe birth control or even arrange for an abortion and not just without your permission but without your knowledge.
I have said we should be ashamed of our council and politians. I take most of that back. We should be ashamed of ourselves for allowing them to get away with what they do. We have a population of over 13,000. All it takes is about 2200 signatures and five honest people to set things straight.
We must have five people in Grand Terrace that are as fed up as the rest of us and would want to serve on the council. I suspect that as eimnent dormain main is used more and more now, there will be those who will not leave peaceably. The"feet first" doctrine will come into affect.
We, as a community, should have locked arms around around the homes of the people on Barton Road. We still have a chance to save face with the one person there. A person who has the courage to say this is my home and you can't take it from me. We can still rally around that person. Go to the council meeting and speak. Tell them enough is enough. Stop destroying our community or face impeachment.
We should recall them all for many other reasons anyway. So, here is my suggestion to state Sen. McClintock today.(916)445-8873. The Senator is authoring legislation on eimnent domain. I called his office and gave this idea. If eimnent domain is going to be used to steal our homes, then write into law that the fair market value must be paid, but must be paid at the rate from two and one half times to five times the market value. Perhaps this would slow down the thieves that pose as our friends at city hall meetings.
It is no longer up to the politians to stand up for our rights. They arn't going to. They will always go with the money people and talk their trash to us at election time and as soon as they are elected we are forgotten. Former Senator Zell Miller of Georgia said in his book" A National Party No More" that the first thing that happens to a new senator or representative when they get to Washington D.C. is they are corrupted. Every political office under that is the training ground.
