Let me know when you're up and running. It's not too far from Londonderry to Weare.... I'll bet you could have a raffle for first night boarders.

Put me down for a couple of tickets.

There's no way in hell the Selectmen would approve building a hotel in an area zone residential. The idiot that's spearheading this "idea" should take a trip to New Hampshire to assess other posibilities such as a B & B. The dude all show.

Relax a bit, it's certainly worth the effort to try and in the meantime this 'project' is pushing public awareness to new highs on the issue of eminent domain and the erosion of our "property rights".

Chill out and let Logan run... it will be fun to see how far this goes..

Cheers,
Lloyd

Add some meeting/banquet space and I'll book conventions....how about the Association of Realtors? Maybe a faith based convention? National Assn. of Crow Eaters? There is an "association" for everything! Great revenue!

Why not do things in a manner that achieves the goal of removing Souter from his homestead. Apparently his (Logan) goal is only to promote himself and get that television show he wants.

Then "redevelop" the rest of the neighborhood as well. Wasting all that land on single family residences is a travesty, when there is money to be made, and taxes collected.

Economic Redevelopment uber alles!

Maybe we could help out Africa at the same time, by hiring Robert Mugabe as a consultant.

Zoning can be changed, however it would probably be difficult. A B&B is a good idea, but it would be hard to argue that it would bring significantly more tax revenue to the town. Unless of course the Selectmen are already motivated to go along with the project. Unlikely since local governments are the biggest beneficiaries, at least for now, of this unconstitutional "taking".

My only suggestion is to name the hotel "Lost Liberty Lodge". It rolls off the tongue better.

I also like the idea of the guest bulldozer. I could see putting up some things on e-Bay to get some real bidding going. Maybe like when the president signs a bill with 50 different pens, you could sell 50 different swipes at the Judge's house.

What is your major malfunction? Television show?

Please source your claims. If you have any sources.

I agree. Not only is the public aware - but city officials are commiting political suicide if they approve such stuff .. at least I would hope people would be outraged and vote such people out of office.

And .. I hope the House continues on it's path to DEFUND such actions. Pelosi says we can't do that .. but WE NOT ONLY CAN - WE SHOULD.

There is nothing to stop someone else from filing another plan on for Mr. Souter's property. That's the beautiful thing about this plan. Mr. Souter can now spend the rest of his days (or until Kelo vs New Longon is overturned) defending every piece of property he owns. If this plan of Mr. Logan's doesn't pass muster, the next plan might, or the one after that. And if Mr. Souter decides to move to the family property in Massachusetts, someone in our midst can simply file the appropriate plans to claim that land and build something more suitable to the economic development of that community as well.

So, if this plan of Logan's is not as well thought out as it should be, then please feel free to file another plan of your own.

The more the merrier until these elite bastards learn that they live under the same laws we do.

Cheers
Lloyd

I emailed my suggestion to Mr. Clements. He should allow small investors and give a free nights stay with each share purchased in the hotel. He could raise millions by doing this.

"If Lettuce Alone isn't on the menu, well that's just wrong."

Other menu items should include:

On the lightweight side:

  1. Liberal Loser Lobster
  2. Slimy Souter Surprise Salad
  3. Kraut Kennedy Kabobs
  4. Grimy Ginsburg Goulash
  5. Seditious Stephens Sandwich
  6. Bilious Breyer Bologna
  7. Occasionally O’Connor Oxtail Soup

For heavy hitters only:

  1. Cool Conservative Catfish
  2. Reliable Rehnquist Roast
  3. Stalwart Scalia Spaghetti
  4. Trustworthy Thomas Tenderloin

Think about it another way. When the project gets disapproved by the local government, the developer can potentially sue claiming he was denied his rights under the recent Kelo decision. Let that one get to the USSC and we will see some fast revision of justice.

And I liked Steyn's column on the subject using the idea that Federal lands are underutilizing their potential tax revenue and should thus be taken. It could get really interesting.

" Federal lands are underutilizing their potential tax revenue and should thus be taken."

That was my thinking...nothing like taking the Supreme Court building to build a strip mall to generate some tax revenue. Afterall, the Supremes aren't generating any tax revenue and it has that "Godly" message called the 10 Commandants (illegal I might add) craved in it.

You will have to take up the Ten Commandments with Steven Breyer. He's the worm that takes both sides of every position after checking with the international community.

The Ten Commandments must be posted in a prominent place at the hotel...perhaps also in every room?

Well, they need a professional present to supervise. I nominate the guy who squashed Rachel Corrie. (He could come in handy in the event, however unlikely, that Souter tries to defend "his" property.)

"There is nothing to stop someone else from filing another plan on for Mr. Souter's property."

You are sooo right! ! In fact, there should be competition for that land, because every project will require a response as long as the filing fee is paid. Bed and Breakfast, Gas Station, 7-11 - They'd all make more tax revenue. How about a topless joint? That would be a pip. This could become the most expensive little piece of land around!

To: FastCoyote
Can I ask the moderator why my comment #45 was pulled? Was it because I offended politicalwit by namecalling? If so, I apologize, it was in response to his calling freestar an idiot.

If it was because I inappropriately addressed the bribery issue regarding the Souter property, can you give me some guidelines?

Well, I do have to say that Logan has done far more for "consciousness raising" on property rights and the Foul Five's most recent treason than I noticed in your posts.

Might I ask why the ad hominum attack on him?

47 posted on 07/03/2005 2:09:03 PM PDT


To: CyberAnt
New Hampshire could pass a constitutional amendment forbidding such takings. Hopefully, they will pass it shortly after Souter's house is bulldozed.

"Might I ask why the ad hominum attack on him?"

Sorry if you see this as an attack on him. After listening to him on Fox it just appears his motives are more self-serving than for the good of the nation. I see him in the same vain as John Walsh on "America's Most Wanted."

You're obviously entitled to your opinion and I know this is tangental to the original post but I can't help wonder how many criminals would still be at large if it wasn't for John Walsh? If not John Walsh then who?
