I think I would feel safer if we returned to education in history and liberal education.

"In the past, personal and political liberty depended to a considerable extent upon governmental inefficiency. The spirit of tyranny was always more than willing; but its organization and material equipment were generally weak. Progressive science and technology have changed all this completely." Aldous Huxley

Education for technology is excellent for manifesting the problem. Liberal education is essential to our liberty.

Sounds like you're good on not being a Dick, Jane.

Civil forfeiture laws regarding guilty property have a long history. The doctrine of in rem forfeiture dates to the 1500s under the the deodand doctrine in English common law, then US common law, and then federal statutes by the 1st Congress under customs. It is not rocket science to know that Reagan was born a long time ago, but never met Jefferson or Madison.

There are three Presidents in a class of their own regarding contempt for the Constitution: Lincoln, Roosevelt, and Obama.

I always use my own words. That is why my posts are rather goofy.

We are not a land of saints.

60 Minutes did a show about Eminent Domain.
Eminent Domain: Being Abused? - CBS News
Cities across the country have been using eminent domain to force people off their land, so private developers can build more expensive homes and offices that will pay more in property taxes than the buildings they're replacing.

Under eminent domain, the government buys your property, paying you what's determined to be fair market value.

But now, people who don't want to sell their homes at any price - just to see their land go to another private owner - are fighting back. Correspondent Mike Wallace reports on this story, which first aired last fall.
Jim and Joanne Saleet are refusing to sell the home they've lived in for 38 years. They live in a quiet neighborhood of single-family houses in Lakewood, Ohio, just outside Cleveland.

The City of Lakewood is trying to use eminent domain to force the Saleets out to make way for more expensive condominiums. But the Saleets are telling the town, "Hell no! They won't go."
