Everyone thinks it's to block the border wall, but really they're just creating their own underground smuggling ring to get Kinder Surprise eggs into America.

Who knew that in 2017 the resistance would be led by teen vogue and cards against humanity.

"I’D LIKE TO CANCEL MY ORDER. We’d like to cancel the 2016 election, but neither of us is going to get what we want." The FAQ page is the best.

What they ought to do, if they really wanted to make this difficult, would be to subdivide the plot into 1"x1" squares and deed each square to someone who donated $15. Then the government would need to name each parcel owner in a takings action. Government would need to have a very precise survey to determine which parcels are necessary for the project, owners on the edge could have claims that their property isn't really necessary for the project. Would be much more successful, I think, than leaving the entire parcel intact and prompting one lawsuit.

Too bad it doesn’t work that way. If they take your land to build Walmart’s and freeways you can bet the federal government is going to have their way.

That comment section is well-seasoned.

Wait, it's not Eminem domain? All this time..

I mean they can't really block the government from eminent domain if a fair price is paid.

Lawyer here. YES, the government's power of eminent domain will assuredly result in a taking of this land. YES, this process can take some time. YES, this process can result in litigation. YES, the owner of the condemned land can slow this process - mainly by instructing their lawyers to use frivolous litigation and procedural techniques to slow this process. YES, any lawyer who does this will be in violation of ethics and will be subject to sanctions, fines, and even disbarment. YES, lawyers do it all the time. HOWEVER, stating your intentions to abuse the system - so clearly, so openly - creates a prima facie case that *any* legal roadblocks put up by CAH/their lawyers are at best frivolous, and at worst (and most likely!) dilatory abuses of the law. AS SUCH, no lawyer will do it - and even if they do, no court will give it any credence. SO, while this might have been a quasi-useful strategy, boasting about it in this way makes it entirely nonuseful. HOWEVER, if they built a large wooden badger...

*"We’ve purchased a plot of vacant land on the border and retained a law firm specializing in eminent domain to make it as time-consuming and expensive as possible for the wall to get built," the company said on their website.* This is a lot more productive than that giant hole they dug last year.

All the need to do is dig on it and say they found ancient burials etc. The historical claim will bring in archaeologists and shut shit down for years, the archaeologists can troll too and get in on it. "Um yeah, we found some Mammoths, and we think Jesus's bones."

It’s funny and clever but .... dragging out an ED case to slow the govt and cost them millions just costs us millions. Who’s money do they think the government is playing with? It’s not like it comes out of Trump’s pockets. Unless I’m missing something, I did just take a lot of NyQuil.

Because if there's one thing walls can't do, it's go around the boundaries of a plot of land

The only people they are gonna end up hurting is the American taxpayer lol

They've almost taken all their orders. Congrats to the lucky fuckers who had the spare bucks. Edit: Aaaaaand they're gone.

The ultra hipster card game just transcended into a whole new level of hipster - omnihipster. I think its funny though. If you're gonna troll, troll like this. Although, can't the gubbament just imminent domain the area they need?
