A (small? moderate?) Win For Property Rights

Via Instapundit (see blogroll at left) comes word of this Executive Order, which says in part:

It is the policy of the United States to protect the rights of Americans to their private property, including by limiting the taking of private property by the Federal Government to situations in which the taking is for public use, with just compensation, and for the purpose of benefiting the general public and not merely for the purpose of advancing the economic interest of private parties to be given ownership or use of the property taken.

When it takes the President to protect us from the Supreme Court....

Now if only we could get the state and local governments to pass similar legislation.

Not currently likely with our mayor indicted by the grand jury.

Chuck Reed for new Mayor!

Don't look for liberals to give Bush points for this.
