Lots of comments about yesterday’s blog.
Hamish checked in with this, “…heads up to anyone living in the west that thinks private property is inviolable.”
Joel offered this: …I’m not too sure how I feel about the Supreme Court’s ruling. I fear putting trust in government because of many poor decisions of the past. On the other hand, there probably are certain times when the economic health and stability of a community outweigh an individual’s economic health and stability. However, most often, I would imagine that the individual’s private property should be respected since they have obviously earned and paid for it…”
And Dostie chimed in with a heads up on the fact that much of this issue revolves around government need/greed for tax money. Someone also said I shouldn’t expect to see more hemp outlets in Boulder anytime soon, but I’m not so sure about that. As for converting Aspen’s Hotel Jerome to affordable price controlled “employee” condos filled with trust funders, don’t be surprised.
