Can this be justified?

So, I see this interview of a Chrysler dealer on TV this morning. He is standing outside his dealership doing this interview. They pan across the street to see a Dodge dealership. The interviewer says, so you were lucky and were not closed down. What happened to that dealership? The guy says it was shut down and given to me. I will run that dealership. The reason he was given was that It was in competition with his chrysler dealer so it was shut down and given to him to run.
Does no one see anything wrong with the government taking a business that a man bought and successfully ran and giving it to someone else to run? They didn't buy it, they just took it. The government has now decide they can just close your business and worse, give it to someone else. How can that be justified?

  • Yes, it is entirely illegal. There is NO allowance for this in any gov't function.

    In fact, nothing could freeze all business transactions more completely than having businessmen discover that their ownership of their business, their contracts with corporations, the investments they make (under a contract that they will get paid back for the money they are loaning to a business), ... that these things are all subject to being dissolved at the whim of the White House.
    Note: that's the WHITE HOUSE and its czars, not Congress. Unlike LEGAL positions, these czars have authority but are not approved by Congress and are not required to make reports to anyone but Obama, and their paperwork and actions are not open to public view like the legal gov't positions are.
