The Self-Hewn Gallows

Heh.

Weare, New Hampshire (PRWEB) 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.

    Funny, I must have seen this at about the same time you did, because I just linked it, too. A cheap publicity stunt, albeit a better one.

    He’d have been better served to kill two birds with one stone and propose taking Breyer’s land to put up a Ten Commandments Museum. 🙂

    Almost any politicians house, (or church), could be E.D.ed into some tax-generating private enterpris

    You think this kind of thing is a joke? I guarantee you it’s NOT. Developers all over are looking at tracts of land now occupied by private homes, churches, small businesses..
    Move those people OUT and start generating some MONEY.

    I have already sent an email saying I want to “invest” into the hotel.

    I am hoping that i can make some money off of this deal.

    On a serious, and ugly note, what is to keep an incumbant from harrassing any challenger by having an “unrelated” developer submit plans for the challenger’s home during a campaign?

    The time involved and distraction of such an event would certainly have an impact on the ability to campaign. Kinda hard to focus on your job when being served with an eviction notice.
