BB&T cannot be praised highly enough for its decision not to lend
money to developers who acquire land through eminent domain.
BB&T’s new policy is a perfect response to the horrific decision
reached by the Supreme Court last year on Kelo v. City of New London.
The remarkable fact about BB&T’s decision is its understanding
that the company’s long term success–as well as the success of its
clients–requires that they take a stand in defense of private
America needs more companies like BB&T that have the wisdom and
courage to defend individual rights. The survival of our freedom and
our capitalist system may well depend on that.
