Sign This Petition–If You Can

Your home: you only thought you owned it.

Sharon and Jerry Puckett have lived in their house, in Yorktown, Indiana, for more than 50 years. Now the town wants to kick them out and tear down their home to make way for some B.S. “games” facility ( If the town can’t force the Pucketts to sell, they’ll invoke “eminent domain” to rob them outright.

Is this the kind of thing that should ever happen in America? Ever?

Like bloody hell it is.

It’s difficult to find words for how low, mean, contemptible, and high-handed it is for the powers that be, in some stupid town, to crush a couple of harmless ordinary people under their hobnailed boots. You’d think they’d be ashamed! But don’t hold your breath waiting for these tinpot tyrants to feel shame.

Anyway, there’s a petition up to save the Pucketts and their home, and supposedly you can find it on the website (click “Browse,” and then “Don’t Bulldoze My Home,” and good luck to you) and hopefully sign it there. They have almost 60,000 signatures, and are shooting for 75,000.

Maybe one or more of you with more computer savvy than I have–that would be almost every living creature on the planet–can find a sure-fire way to gain access to the petition and sign it. If you can, please let me know and I’ll add it to this post.

  1. Eminent domain, now there’s a sticky subject. It should only be used in the strictest of situations – like life or death. But on the other hand, we really don’t own our homes as long as the gov’t can tax them, because you know what happens if you don’t pay property tax. Then, the same can be said about our income – so we really don’t even own ourselves either. Try to tell this to most Christians and watch their eyes roll.

    1. Probably because they hadn’t thought of it–but really, if they can grab your home whenever they please, you don’t own it. You paid for it, but you don’t own it.

  2. I know what you mean, whiterabbit. People just refuse to believe that this evil exists– until it happens to them! I have head and read of similar situations over the years, and it always makes my blood boil, but it keeps happening

    1. I’m pleased that some of us have been able to do that! Hopefully every little bit will help.
      Although it seems wrong to have to get up a petition with 75,000 signatures on it as your only hope to deter elected officials from doing something as low and wicked as this.

  3. Petition signed! This is very sad! Leave this family alone and let them live out their lives in THEIR HOME! I bet the people spearheading this wouldn’t allow anyone to throw them out of their homes. I’m sure they have tons of money and fancy lawyers. BULLIES!! Do unto others as you would have done unto yourself. If this goes through, karma will find them and it won’t be pretty. God bless this couple. I pray they win their fight 🙏💗
