“Eminent Domain.......it takes a village!
at a diner and this guy tells me I have to vacate my
business and my building in 90 days or get thrown out in

tell my employees and my family? He couldn’t care less!
Chester merchant Jon Bischoff tells of his long

beneficiaries of this modern day interpretation of eminent
domain? Why are governments increasingly using their
powers to oust private citizens from their homes and small
businesses? Who will be next? You?
