Eminent domain is only used when the govt. needs the land for something.

I hope the owners never sleepwalk. I can just imagine they open the front door, then splat. Hey - watch out, that first step in a doosey!

Excellent! You could do so much with that. I would have to choose between watchtower, big slide and subterranean firepole.

Damn that is just like that Bugs Bunny cartoon...they even built a highway around it. At the end of the cartoon he says "The sanctity of the American home MUST be preserved!"

Wrong country,right idea I guess. Heh.

FLB, I second that. I also thought it would`ve been a beautiful tropical island owned by a family with a pina colada on the side...

Well if those people didn`t have connections to the gov. in China I`m afraid something worse than `eminent domain` would happen to them.

Be super cool if they built up the office block around them. They could be living in the reception of some international bank .

Why would you even want to save your house if it looked that bad? LOL I`d be the one driving the dulldozer smashing it down if it was mine

In America, developers just have to yell "eminent domain!" and the government makes you sell.

Solution: Dig a Deeeep hole in the center of the home then dig it out to wherever you can park the car. It`ll take work, but it would be a good way to stick it to the man. Just when they think they had you... you would be laughing at them.

"i thought this was in america. its china."
Yes it is but you`re forgetting something crucial. Those tinny creatures are aliens that have been there for a long time watching. Now they`re coming to attack all of us.

REPENT! And thou shall be saved.

If there`s flying zombies, the whole world is screwed. But normal zombies, yeh, safe- until you run out of food, or can`t figure out how to get back up after going down.

i thought this was in america. its china. but i think this happens here in america also and that is wrong! ask for double for what the "government" is offering and take it if they agree. that`s what id do.
