Freestar Media: "Lost Liberty Hotel" proposed on Justice Souter's land
Freestar Media ^ | Monday, June 27, 2005 | Logan Darrow Clements

Posted on 06/28/2005 3:40:00 AM PDT by Smile-n-Win

Weare, New Hampshire (PRWEB) Could a hotel be built on the land owned by Supreme Court Justice David H. Souter? A new ruling by the Supreme Court which was supported by Justice Souter himself itself might allow it. A private developer is seeking to use this very law to build a hotel on Souter's land.

Justice Souter's vote in the "Kelo vs. City of New London" decision allows city governments to take land from one private owner and give it to another if the government will generate greater tax revenue or other economic benefits when the land is developed by the new owner.

On Monday June 27, Logan Darrow Clements, faxed a request to Chip Meany the code enforcement officer of the Towne of Weare, New Hampshire seeking to start the application process to build a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road. This is the present location of Mr. Souter's home.

Clements, CEO of Freestar Media, LLC, points out that the City of Weare will certainly gain greater tax revenue and economic benefits with a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road than allowing Mr. Souter to own the land.

The proposed development, called "The Lost Liberty Hotel" will feature the "Just Desserts Café" and include a museum, open to the public, featuring a permanent exhibit on the loss of freedom in America. Instead of a Gideon's Bible each guest will receive a free copy of Ayn Rand's novel "Atlas Shrugged."

Clements indicated that the hotel must be built on this particular piece of land because it is a unique site being the home of someone largely responsible for destroying property rights for all Americans.

"This is not a prank" said Clements, "The Towne of Weare has five people on the Board of Selectmen. If three of them vote to use the power of eminent domain to take this land from Mr. Souter we can begin our hotel development."

Clements' plan is to raise investment capital from wealthy pro-liberty investors and draw up architectural plans. These plans would then be used to raise investment capital for the project. Clements hopes that regular customers of the hotel might include supporters of the Institute For Justice and participants in the Free State Project among others.

Although this appears to be somewhat tongue-in-cheek, I think it is exactly what should be done.

In fact, it is an ideal demonstration since it literally would take only three good citizens to wake up Justice Souter and the other four on the court as to what a precarious position that they have put the rest of their fellow citizens in.

Plus, if the town rejects it, he can appeal citing Souter's decision. At least make Souter take notice. Anybody know where Ginsburg lives?

:) Would that it succeeded.

Souter will appeal privately to his contacts to find a way to argue that he is exempt fromt he rule. Perhaps the rule will be modified so as not to apply to those working in the judicial branch (how's that for elitism?).

But since Souter is the person who made up symbolic speech as a protected form of speech, such that its expression overrules other laws, it is ironic that the concept of symbolic speech may be used against him. Which will also be modified in some decision so as not to apply.

Justice Thomas had to shame him into opposing cross burning, as thanks to Souter, it was supposedly protected speech.

Actually, since Barbra Streisand and her buddies are so concerned about the public ruining their views, I think seizure of all the homes along Malibu Beach with construction of an amusement park would be a reasonable place to start.

Where else did you expect Souter to live? By the way, our local spies tell us that Souter pronounces his home address as Siwwy Hiww, FWIW.

Instead of "up" and "down" the signs on the elevators should say "assent" and "dissent".

Clements' plan is to raise investment capital from wealthy pro-liberty investors and draw up architectural plans.

They should create a "Lost Liberty REIT" whose sole purpose is to fight this ruling and target those who support and wish to use and abuse this horrendous SCOTUS ruling.

By creating a REIT, it will be easier to attract the average investor as well as the wealthy ones.

The SCOTUS decision reduces my property values, therefore I think we have a case for having property taxes reduced.

What happens if your property is Zoned Residential and the town wants a mall?

I wouldn't go that far. If you read liberal pages, such as Dean Esmay, there is also an outcry on the left that this is a detriment to the poor. That's a good point for a politically diverse group of people to agree on. :)

It's also good strategy.

The deciding judges may be on their own or this may indicate a split within the left. This is good if the idea is to create some public expression of dissent that may result in a reconsideration; it doesn't help the decision already made, but could help new ones.

And let's not forget a sculpture of Souter, perhaps made of glass, sitting on the toilet, and crapping on the Constitution.

With a happy smile upon his ugly face, of course.

Then its' no longer a beautiful park and you shouldn't punish the animals in the zoo - they didn't vote Kennedy!
