More Eminent Domain in Texas

I sent this off a few minutes ago:

July 18, 2005

Honorable Rick Perry
Office of the Governor
P.O. Box 12428
Austin, Texas 78711-2428

Governor Perry,

The Texas Legislature has been working on the Eminent Domain issue in this special session. I have been informed that some underhanded political sway has been added in order to facilitate the Crooks down in Freeport in such a way as to aid them in their transfer of ownership of a parcel of land from one individual to another. This outright theft of land under the cloak of Eminent Domain was aided by the recent Supreme Court ruling in Kelo Vs New London.

Freeport City Manager Ron Bottoms has evidently found some assistance in his cause to steal private lands by amending the work of other legislators to the point of rendering such legislation useless, at least as far as the planned Freeport Yacht Club facility would be concerned.

Please review the pending legislation Carefully and Thoughtfully with those who are in the process of drafting a piece of history that will either shine a pleasant light on Texas or take our ability to govern our affairs into the dark corners of the cloak room.. If there is any light to be cast, let it be to illuminate the rats and roaches so that we might have a better understanding of those in office, supposedly to protect and serve.
