Remember that loathsome, detestable, outrageous, unconscionable 5-4 decision by the Supreme Court in the 2005 Kelo v. City of New London case? Let me refresh your memory:
Illustrating once again how many Americans’ knowledge of the Bill of Rights is virtually non-existent, Californians signed a petition to repeal the Third Amendment and allow U.S. troops to commandeer their homes.
