Democratic Underground - The Greatest Government Taking of Property in History?

(from DU. thought you guys might be interested. emminent domain -- brook)

I was reading this article at CNN about the thousands of people who refuse to leave New Orleans, and it occurred to me that if the Bush gameplan is to bulldoze New Orleans and remake it as a new tourist destination, sans original residents, these people are the last line of defense against it becoming an American Fallujah.

Does anyone else suspect that we may soon see these people being forcibly removed from their homes by the National Guard so that the bulk of New Orleans can be razed?

Someone mentioned that many of the ownership documents that would have corroborated claims of property ownership in the area were likely destroyed in the flood, and that got me thinking that if the plan, as it seems to be, is to evacuate, demolish, and rebuild, then New Orleans will likely be the site of the biggest government taking in U.S. history.

After all, if confirming the ownership of a vast number of buildings in New Orleans is going to be impossible, and the populace is being forcibly removed, then the end result is going to have to involve the Feds not only taking control of the city, but actually taking a good deal of property away from the actual owners."(from DU. thought you guys might be interested. emminent domain -- brook)
