As reported in the Wall Street Journal, Pfizer has announced plans to close its Research and Development Headquarters in New London, Connecticut. You know….the big revenue stream enhancer for which Suzette Kelo lost her right to property for? The big deal with Pfizer to bribe the city to take peoples homes away in exchange for “alleged” tax revenue gains that go up in smoke now that Pfizer is walking away from first our Constitution and now their promises? You know, the whole sordid deal where the US Supreme Court sold out our freedom FOR NOTHING!!!!!
Thanks for nothing SCOUTUS!
Government loves to ignore individual liberty and rights in the name of “progress” or betterment of the “whole”. If they remembered that we live in a Constitutional Republic and not a mob-rule pure democracy, they would still understand that by stripping the individual of liberty they sap the foundation that protects the entire collective they claim to be helping/serving. We were ALL damaged by the farce of justice that was Kelo vs. New London.
In fact, as stated in the WSJ, the condemned and wrecked neighborhood stands vacant without any of the touted revenue improvements! Do you hear this Norfolk Housing & Redevelopment? Hear this Portsmouth “Crabshack” council? Are you paying attention Virginia Beach Council? Let’s hope VB is thinking twice before taking land for Towne Center/Light Rail for “development” and “Density Projects”. What if that density never shows up?
To New London, Connecticut:
Reap what you sow you freedom sucking parasitic bastards!
