Article IV, Part Third, Section 14 of the maine State Constitution

Article IV, Part Third, Section 14 of the Maine State Constitution says:

Corporations shall be formed under general laws, and shall not be created by special Acts of the Legislature, except for municipal purposes, and in cases where the objects of the corporation cannot otherwise be attained, and, however formed , they shall forever be subject of the general laws of the state ( emphasis mine)

Quote from the legislative Charter for Brunswick Landing Maine's Center for Innovation : The Midcoast Regional Redevelopment Authority is established as a body corporate and politic and a public instrumentality of the State to carry out the purposes of this article. The authority is entrusted with acquiring and managing the properties within the geographic boundaries of Brunswick Naval Air Station. [2009, c. 641,
§1 (AMD).]
1. Powers. The authority is a public municipal corporation and may:D. Exercise the power of eminent domain; [2005, c. 599, §1 (NEW).]

Preserving The American Political Philosophy: Discussion of LePage Budget Rages On Amid a Flurry Of Comments Being Scrubbed From The Net

I wrote this blog about comments opposing the LePage budget being scrubbed from the internet. A few hours later I went to update it to find that my own blog post had been scrubbed from my own blog, but clearly not inadvertently through my own actions as the UPDATE function was still displaying. So I documented what was happening with screen shots and included them in my post about comments opposing Lepage's budget being scrubbed from the web- how post modern is that! Meanwhile it appears that my post no longer display on twitter using #mepolitcs and #maine. So much for free speech in the former state of Maine, which I contend has been transformed into the corporation of Maine through a series of statutory overwrites of the Maine State Constitution. So click and read while you can. If the link to the post says it does not exist try clicking on the HOME button- that seems to be more durable. And ask your self why my voice is so important to silence.
