Property rights? What are those?

What the fuck is wrong with Haley Barbour?  Is he for the individual's rights, or the corporation?  A Democrat in the Mississippi legislature offered up a bill that would have banned the state from abusing eminent domain for private projects.  This is of course an effort to nullify the horrendous Kelo decision, and it should be supported. 

Yeah, I get that MS is desperate for new business, but you can't trade business opportunities for individual rights, and a Republican ought to know that better than anyone.  There's a reason the GOP is in the minority right now.
