So far, leftists silent on SCOTUS ruling

that Government Knows Best how to use your property. Nothing from the Kossacks (who are busy calling Rove a traitor and fake menstrual blood torture), nothing from Joshua Marshall, silence from Asstrios (who also has this Rove fixation) ...

Meanwhile, the conservative and libertarian blogsphere (me included) is exploding in sheer disbelief that now, if Starbucks casts a covetous eye on your abode and can convince the city council they can bring more revenue in taxes than you do because, well, all you do is live there, you might as well start packing cuz your house is toast (served in triangles, sprinkled with Hawaiian cane sugar and Sri Lankan cinnamon accompanying an Espresso Macchiato).

But the Left has never really been about individuals anyway. They'll even suspend their knee-jerk hatred of anything business as long as the power of the government to suppress the individual in favor of a "collective" good is increased.

Small sampling of non-leftist outrage:

Florida Cracker
The American Princess
Michelle Malkin who also has a long list of links
Jeff Goldstein designates it perfectly as The Attack of the Judicial Nannystate
Stones Cry Out ... a must read for Californians

They're not silent any more. The Times has an unsigned editorial in Friday's paper in which they applaud the decision as a victory over what they call the "'property rights' movement," with scare quotes and everything.

If anything, the Times editorial is a far stronger argument against the decision than for it, at least to people who value liberty and individual rights over collectivism.

Atrios didn't have much to say, but he eventually got around to saying something. Of course, only a few of us have the stamina to read an entire 58-page court decision.
