A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.
Friday, July 02, 2004 Illegal taking: King County in wet Washington State is poised to guarantee the state stays green by only allowing you to build on 10 percent of your land. Furthermore, 65 percent of your land you can't touch at all -- the remaining 25 percent I suppose you're allowed to put a garden or maybe make a soccer field.
This sort of taking for the greater good should be no surprise considering who represents King County. Needless to say, this is the sort of thing that happens with a certain party in power.
