    I thought that the intended concept behind "eminent domain" was to provide lawful seizure with due compensation of property that was in the clear and PRESSING interest of national security or "significant" government public works projects.

    That private developers could twist this for their own greedy, and I do mean greedy, enterprises is shocking and sad.

    These are all my words, but I stick by them.
