There are times when you wish you were wrong about the extreme lust for power within leftist political officials… Alas, some things are also too predictable.
Boston authorities are now contemplating the confiscation of private property under the guise of COVID-19 mitigation or “public health”, because they need to house/detain people in socially distant venues. The COVID provides a reason to confiscate private domicile.

Think about Housing and Urban Development (HUD) having new rules about dwellings and complexes for housing grants. Population density; the need to move into the suburbs and the confiscation of private property to “ensure the common safety” of the citizens. (read more)
