MDHA Convention Center

Just want to remind folks as we wade further into the convention center land grab and billion dollar public funding of what should be an entirely private enterprise that MDHA's land grab attempt last year to condemn Joy Ford's property for a must have hotel on Demonbreun and Music Row has resulted in not one shovelful of dirt being moved since the parties came to a land swap agreement last October. Last October folks. Nearly a year now.

I shudder to think where that land owner would be if we hadn't gotten very vocal about MDHA's handling of that mess. I'm concerned that with Obamanomics and few real controls over MDHA taxpayers will get stuck with a lot of land and a lot of debt.

I don't know about you, but this family can't afford any more government help.

Thank the conservatives on the Supreme Court for passing the Eminent Domain ruling.

Uhm, no Ellen. If you're talking about Kelo, the liberal justices along with Anthony Kennedy made up the majority.
