The Department of Instant Karma’s Gonna Get You, we get this report of one of the fuckwitted black-robed tyrants on the US Soprano Court about to be bitten squarely on the ass by his own ruling.
Following a Supreme Court ruling last week that gave local governments power to seize private property, someone has suggested taking over Justice David Souter’s New Hampshire farmhouse and turning it into 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,” Logan Darrow Clements, of California, wrote in a letter faxed to town officials in Weare, New Hampshire, on Tuesday.
Souter, a longtime Weare resident, joined in the 5-4 court decision allowing governments to seize private property from one owner and turn it over to another if doing so would benefit a community.
And who better to set the example for us than he who would sit in judgement o’er us and propose to tell us how best to dispose of our property, hm?
The letter dubbing the project the “Lost Liberty Hotel” was posted on conservative radio show host Rush Limbaugh’s Website. Clements said it would include a dining room called the “Just Desserts Cafe” and a museum focused on the “loss of freedom in America.”
A message seeking comment from Souter was left at his office Wednesday morning. The court has recessed and Souter is still in Washington, one of his secretaries said.
Hiding from those who would take him up on his kind offer to sacrifice his property, no doubt.
A few police cruisers were parked on the edge of Souter’s property Tuesday. `”It was a precaution, just being protective,’” said Lt. Mark Bodanza.
Trust us, Lieutenant – once the American people have decided they’ve been pushed too far, you might consider investing in more than just a “few police cruisers”.
Just sayin’, is all.
