Developer seeks Souter home

Posted by Richard on June 28, 2005

This is just priceless! The finest idea I’ve heard in a long time! A developer has announced plans to build a hotel on the site of Justice David Souter’s home in Weare, NH. He’s contacted the local government to begin the process of requesting an eminent domain seizure of the property:

Logan Darrow Clements faxed a request to Chip Meany, the code enforcement officer of the town of Weare, N.H., seeking to start the application process to build a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road, the present location of Souter’s home.

Wrote Clements: "Although this property is owned by an individual, David H. Souter, a recent Supreme Court decision, Kelo v. City of New London, clears the way for this land to be taken by the government of Weare through eminent domain and given to my LLC for the purposes of building a hotel. The justification for such an eminent domain action is that our hotel will better serve the public interest as it will bring in economic development and higher tax revenue to Weare."

According to a statement from Clements, 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 in each room, guests will receive a free copy of Ayn Rand’s novel "Atlas Shrugged," the statement said.

In case the above doesn’t make Clements’ political leanings clear, there’s this:

Clements is the CEO of Freestar Media, LLC, which is dedicated to fighting "the most deadly and destructive force on the planet: abusive governments," the website states.

The activist says he is aware of the apparent conflict of someone who is strongly opposed to the Kelo decision using it to purposely oust an American from his property.

"I realize there is a contradiction, but we’re only going to use it against people who advocated" the Kelo decision, Clements told WND. "Therefore, it’s a case of retaliation, not initiation."

If he builds it, I will come! I’m sure Weare, NH, makes a nice vacation spot in the fall when the leaves turn.

UPDATE: The Jawa Report is having a do-it-yourself fatwa festival, so of course I’m submitting this post. Follow the link and check out the other fatwa-worthy stuff.

    I think they should go for all five justices properties!
