Think your house is your castle? Our country's Founders thought so. They put three provisions into the Bill of Rights to protect it.
But last week, the Supreme Court said the government can take away your house just because it thinks someone else could make better use of your home or business than you can.
The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.
