Janet Napolitano Bullies The Little Man

H/T Will "Wild Bill" Donovan

Where is Memeo on this? I beat Drudge.

In what seems as a rash overzealous use of government force, Janet Napolitano is threatening a Vermont dairy farmer into selling his land. That's right.

Clement Rainville farms a family farm in Morses Line Vermont, a rural town on the border with Canada. In this bastion of border mayhem, the daily count of cars crossing the border might reach three cars. Napolitano and company want to abscond with 4.9 acres at a price of $39,500 for the whole of it. What a deal. And if Mr. Rainville refuses, the Bully from Arizona will use eminent domain to take what does not belong to her or any government.

According to, Napolitano's or should I say Janet Incompetano's motives are such:
The Department of Homeland Security sees Morses Line as a weak link in the nation’s borders, attractive to terrorists trying to smuggle in lethal materials. The government is planning an estimated $8 million renovation here as part of a nationwide effort to secure border crossings.
This case truly cries out for the need to amend the constitution. When the founders wrote the third amendment, they should have included the prohibition of the government acquiring property through eminent domain. The use of which has allowed the government to acquire property at below market price, whether or not the owner wants to sell it in the first place. In some cases, the government has seized property for private concerns. What should be noted in the Kelo case, is that the majority was led by liberals on the bench, not conservatives who are usually lambasted for supporting profit and private enterprise. In fact, the conservative members of the court turned out to be the true liberals, upholding the natural right to own property, which in my view, is inviolate, insofar as legalities. So far as the person has not commits a crime with the property, it should not be taken through any means, even through due process. Still, the Rainville's aren't hopeful.
“They are trying to steamroll us,’’ said Brian Rainville, 36, a high school government and civics teacher whose grandfather bought the farm in 1946 and whose parents and two brothers run it now. “We have a buyer holding a gun to our head saying you have to sell or else.’’
And so it goes with the bullies from DC. I hope that someone from the ACLU, CATO or some other allegedly pro-liberties organization takes up Mr. Rainville's case. It cries out for justice.

Thank you for reading this blog.

Note, they pay NO attention to the Mexican Border, and want to screw with the guy's farm in Vermont.

Exactly my friend. They want to create victims of the good guys. THe criminals, they are supposed victims of racism, but the guy that earns gets screwed. Incompetano is a strunza, plain and simple, and I would glad be glad to tell her in proper napolitano, no pun intended.
