This may be the greatest thing I have ever heard --and if it can be pulled off this guy will be a hero...(well, my hero at least)
...Due to the latest Supreme Court ruling on Eminent Domain and the sad fact that none of us actually own what we own...
"An activist angered by a Supreme Court property-rights decision proposed this week that the town of Weare, N.H., give Justice David H. Souter a taste of his own legal medicine.
Souter, who owns a home in the south-central New Hampshire town, voted with the majority last week in the case of Kilo vs. City of New London. The court found that the Connecticut city could use the power of eminent domain to seize private property to make way for an urban redevelopment project that would provide broad economic benefits to the community.
The proposal to seize Souter's modest home, though it may be far-fetched, has gained support from conservatives across the country. It showed up in a letter faxed to a Weare town official Monday." (source)
The guy (Logan Darrow Clements) is organizing this effort and receiving overwhelming support from both sides of the aisle. His next step is to get a hotel chain to take over the actual proposal for the plan for Judge Souter's land. He is dead serious about it.
"Clements faxed his letter to Charles Meany, code enforcement officer for Weare, a community of 6,865.
"I am taking it seriously," Meany said of Clements' letter. He said it had generated e-mail from across the country supporting the hotel initiative. "I have to afford him all the due process under the law." (source)
This Supreme Court decision on Eminent Domain really reminds us all of the importance of impending Supreme Court nominations and appointments. Let the fight begin! (Actually both fights –to take Souter’s house under the guidelines of his own ruling and the fight for the SC vacancies…)
