Meet you at the "Just Desserts" Cafe

This is hysterically funny:
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.
Best line:
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."
Very creative. Serves him right. The ruling is horrendous. As I've heard it stated, it's like "Robin Hood in reverse". Taking from the poor to give to the rich.

Souter might have had it coming. But I still think there's a difference between taking someone's property through eminent domain for a business and this guy who seems to be a bit of an asshole. Targeting Souter's house because he disagrees with him seems even more wrong.

Robbing from the poor to give to the rich is what conservative governments in this country have been upt to for the last half-century. Why are you surprised?
