#1 From John Adams:

"The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence."

#3 What they also need is someone to get rid of that eyesore called the Kennedy compound. Prime realestate for a Walmart/Hotel/Haliburton HQ. I love this country!

#5 Humm, Weare is just outside of Concord in the southern part of the state. Lot's of Mass ex-pats living there, but still fairly conservative. And with a strong view of property rights. The Selectmen may just have enough of a sense of humor to let this go forward enough to make him testify why they shouldn't do this.

#7 Hell at 10 bucks a pop he could raise enough money. I'll pitch in 10, If I was not so lazy and had a real job it would be more.

#8 The hotel would certainly draw in tax revenue: People would stay there just to spite the Supreme Court.

Here's the homepage for Weare:

#10 Ain't America grand! What a way to make a point to those "Men/Women in Black" that have been chipping away at our rights since the 70's (many would argue even before that). This one crossed the line and it's only a matter of time before this is used against our overlords government officials themselves. I love that quote, WS5976!

#12 Excellent. I'd gladly donate to this.

#13 I love it!
Count me in--let Souter and his family go live with Ginsburg or Tony Kennedy (until we can figure out what to do with their homes)!

#20 and we all look so forward to reading Souter's aguments as to why HIS house should be exempt.

#21 I think we have just hit upon a safety valve to prevent City Council meddling. If any gov't official wants to condem something, get folks together and request their property be condemned to build ANYTHING.

EXAMPLE




Councilman Jones now regrets his decision to vote to condemn the Smith family residence to build the Joseymainia Ferris wheel.



Restauranteur Smith decided that he needed to open a new storefront, and the location of Councilman Jones' former home seemed the 'ideal' spot.

#22 Souter has a house in "Live Free or Die" New Hampshire and he still voted for Kelo? Next election, get 5 guys to run for Weare Selectmen on the platform of approving "The Lost Liberty Hotel". They would be shoo-ins.

#23 Yeeeeee-haaaaaaah! I called for something similar to this on Thursday (comment #33) when this godawful decision was first announced, but I didn't think anyone would be able to go after one of the Justices directly like this! This is WONDERFUL news!

Eat that, Souter! It sucks when your own overlording decisions come back to bite you in the ass, doesn't it?

#24 Did Souter and the others think that this would not happen? Ah, the smell of arrogance in the morning. And, if I were city council members voting against, I'd be a bit worried about that upcoming election when there will be three of five.

It's a nightmare really. That's why it's such an insane decision. I hope our lawmakers will move quickly to fill in the gap - but I hope they write a special clause in that the new laws don't apply to SCOTUS judges who voted for this unreal violation of our rights.
