Prop. 90 Seeks Limitations on Eminent Domain

If a person is being forced off of their land they should be compensated more than "fair market value". A home or property has long been thought of as an investment. To say "we're only going to pay you what it is worth now" is like forcing someone to cash in a 401K plan early and not giving them full maturity value. As for additional taxpayer costs. Are they not trying to generate MORE tax revenue from these deals? Why should the cities get MORE, and the developers make PROFIT, but the original land owner only gets current market value. What stops developers from waiting for a down turn like now to scoop these properties. As opposed to scooping during a boom. And what provisions are in place to insure that these developers actually complete their projects. Is there something in the laws that state that a developer MUST start the project by a certain time an also MUST complete the project by a certain time or face reimbursing the city and landowners?

Mosque Planned For Temecula Sparks Protest

"Others came because they believe a mosque is a step toward political domination by Muslims. " What about the political domination by Christians? What about political domination by Republicans and Democrats?

Additionally, we've had a large influx of Muslim political refugees in recent years running from the Muslim extremists in their own country. Are they no allowed to practice their own religion?
