Justice Breyer's Plainfield Home Eyed for Constitution Park' By David Corriveau Valley News Staff Writer Plainfield -- If the Libertarian Party of New Hampshire and its allies have their way, someday two stone monuments will stand on U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Breyer's Plainfield property.
Short of that, the Libertarians hope to cause Breyer some discomfort for his vote last month on a controversial court decision freeing cities and towns to take land and turn it over to private developers. They are planning a petition drive asking Plainfield voters to take Breyer's 167-acre vacation retreat by eminent domain at their 2006 Town Meeting. After ousting the Breyers, the Libertarians would create Constitution Park, to include one monument commemorating the U.S. Constitution and another for the New Hampshire Constitution.
The point is: What goes around, comes around, Mike Lorrey, the Libertarian Party's vice chairman in New Hampshire's Second Congressional District, said yesterday. This is a way of saying, Youre going to be held to your own standard.'
Lorrey said that the effort follows up a California businessman's proposal to test that court decision by taking Justice David Souter's Weare, N.H., farm by eminent domain and replacing it with a posh Lost Liberty Hotel. Lorrey said that Edward Naile, president of the Coalition of New Hampshire Taxpayers, has recruited some Plainfield residents to go around town, seeking signatures of town voters. Naile did not return messages left for him yesterday.

Them that has, gets...
L'Chaim! Hello fellow citizen.
If he's ever a day late in his bill, you know the drill.....
Pfffft. Lights out.
Hey, how do I get me one of them "current-use credits"??
Due to copyright, I guess they couldn't name it Jurassic Park in honor of the dinosaurs on the court today.
My family has a lot of land in "current use". In fact we're looking at putting a bunch more flood plain land into that designation because the taxes are killing us.
Parcel has to be at least 10 acres. There are restrictions. Check at the town office.
There's nothing wrong with it. It promotes "open" land.
Howdy! It would be great if you could take a pic of the place and post it.
What ticks me off is that I have to pay taxes on the FULL assessment of my humble 1600 sq. ft detached condo - no land, while Breyer's final assessment ends up being less than mine for a 4,964-square-foot house and 167 acres!
I may be able to do that. In fact I might just "find" myself over in that neighborhood next week. I'm pretty sure there's something there that requires my attention. As the minutes go by, I'm growing more and more sure of it.
Looks like a nice place for a FReeper "Woodstock"...
Plainfield is a very nice town. It's on the Left Coast of New Hampshire, next to the Connecticut River and the New Hampshire Grants. (Some people call it Vermont.)
Hallelujah!! It has finally happened. The worm, having lain off to the side quietly and patiently, has turned..., morphed into a gaboon viper and struck with a sudden swiftness upon being agitated and provoked.
A great big WELL DONE to the New Hampshire Libertarian Party. They have taken the first step and decided that the USSC, in a participatory democracy, can be taught a lesson by a public butt-whipping and humiliation. They have set about to select the deserved Justice Breyer, one of the Supreme Gang of Five, for an exercise of What Goes Around Comes Around.
NOW,,,THEY need OUR HELP. FREEpers band together and use our collective power. I implore you to send an email to:
Chair of the New Hampshire Libertarian Party at
and Cc: address the Media Director in that same email, at
and also include as Cc: addressee the Valley News editor's desk at
This should ensure that the local paper that broke this story and the organization who initiated the effort knows that this is an ISSUE OF COMMON AND NATIONAL CONCERN. I also would suggest that you mail informational links to your own personal mail groups/lists to help spread the word and insure a groundswell of response.
The text of my own email is as follows and feel free to use it or modify it to make your sentiments known:
If money is needed in this effort- --- I hope they make that need PUBLIC....
I'm confident, all the money needed to "take" this bastard's land could be raised in a "wink"....
Sounds like a winner!
" I work for the electric co-op that supplies electricity to this place"
