Taking the high ground, and the rest of it too.

Citing 'eminent domain' Jersey City has decided to seize a few more feet of our rights and turn them over to others.
A man's business and backroom apartment is being taken so the city can give the land to a Catholic School that wants a few more yards for its football field.
It looks like the slippery slope we started down a few months ago has been fully claimed by the government and turned over to private interests.
This not only trespasses on a few amendments, but it also tiptoes into the yard of at least one "covet thy neighbor" commandment.

It is nice that in this country you can be rendered by Caesar and the Lord all at the same time, ain't it?
