As a GM bodholder getting screwed, why would I expect justice from the government’s court? THe government seized my propoerty violating the rule of law. And, the government’s court approved the government’s plan in violation of the government’s law.

Tyranny!

But not a surprise.

Who protects the serfs from the “King”?

SCOTUS: No right to DNA tests for convicts
MSNBC

*** begin quote ***

“The Supreme Court said Thursday that convicts have no constitutional right to test DNA evidence in hopes of proving their innocence long after they were found guilty of a crime. The decision may have limited impact because the federal government and 47 states already have laws that allow convicts some access to genetic evidence. Testing has led to the exoneration of at least 232 people who had been found guilty of murder, rape and other violent crimes.” (06/18/09)

MASSACHUSETTS (WPRI) – A record number of families are being put up in motels in Massachusetts. High unemployment and the rising number of home foreclosures is the reason the state is taking this action.

Housing Massachusetts’ homeless is costing tax payers around $2 million per month. It costs an average of $85 per night to have families, including nearly 1000 children, stay in motels.

The Interagency Council on Housing and Homelessness admits that the use of motels for the homeless is not ideal, but is the best that can be done at this time.

Homeless advocates are worried that families are not getting the support of shelters with living rooms, kitchens, and play areas.

MY COMMENT

Is it the role of the State Government to “shelter”? Is shelter a “right”? Remember where you say someone has a “right” that says you’re going to take a gun and force someone else to pay for it. As a little L libertarian, this is a function of families, churches, charities, fraternities, sororities, and other institutions. The  government becomes the gooferment when it tries to be all things to all people. It forces out “charity” with it’s high taxes. AND, the first thing it does is create a bureaucracy with a union. Note at the end: “homeless advocates” want shelters with living rooms and kitchens. Argh! And, who pays the “homeless advocates” for all this “advocating”? Am I the only one who has a problem with this?
