Can we get some communists in this country?

China has amended its constitution, officially protecting private property for the first time:

Five decades after sweeping to power, a period during which private property has been nationalized and bloody campaigns have been waged against landlords, China's parliament amended the constitution to add the clause: "Private property obtained legally is inviolable."
Boy, don't you wish our Constitution said that?

(Or at least that our Supreme Court justices would stop pretending that it didn't say that?)
