Republican government takes over State, begins Big Government Takeovers

Raleigh, N.C. — North Carolina governments wouldn't be able to condemn property in order to sell it to a private developer under a bill that passed the House 110-8 Tuesday afternoon.

Rep. Chuck McGrady, R-Henderson, said the measure was meant to head off situations like that in the famous Kelo case, in which a Connecticut town took property so it could be developed.

Cities and counties would still be able to take land for streets, public buildings and the like, McGrady said. Also, utility companies would still be able to condemn right of way for electric lines and water pipes. Those types of public purposes, McGrady said, meet the test for which eminent domain powers were first established.

"With time, the test has really gotten fuzzy or morphed," he said. The proposed constitutional amendment makes the definition clear in North Carolina.

    • Edge rushers are the QBs of the defense and Garrett looks to be a generational talent. The only scenario where it ever makes sense to trade next year's first round pick is 1) you don't have a QB and you do it to secure an elite prospect and 2) you don't have an elite edge rushers and you do it to secure an elite prospect. I'm not foolish enough to think it will happen.  Just pointing out that Garrett is that kind of player.
    • You say that now, but when next year rolls around you'll say, "Why were we stupid enough to trade this years first last year????"
