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."

I see him more as a 'Larry Klayman'.

There's no way in hell the Selectmen would approve building a hotel in an area zone residential

They would if a cousin were involved, unless they're a really unique board of selectmen.

This is absolutely BRILLIANT for exposing the horrors of this Supreme Court decision. I haven't seen anything so clever since Hillary stiffed the waitress, and we all sent Trish a tip.

This is the kind of thing it's going to take to institute change...humor, guts, and intelligence.

You can apply for a spot rezone or a variance in zoning.

I have already sent the following e-mail to the Board of Selectmen, Weare, New Hampshire:

Dear Board of Selectmen:

I strongly urge you consider The Lost Liberty Hotel project to replace Judge Souter's home. I for one would make it a point to visit Weare and patronize the hotel and local businesses. Because of the new version of the Fifth Amendment proclaimed by the Supreme Court, it's appropriate to commemorate the loss of personal property rights in such a manner. After all, we can no longer "live free" in our own homes.

Thank you for your consideration.

You are correct. It's not impossible, but it is highly unlikely. A much better plan would be to find a urban area where city hall is located in a slightly blighted area and create a redevelopment zone. Once that's done it is far simpler to rezone for commercial.

Maybe, we can have Rachel's special bulldozer shipped over from Israel to level his home.

They should sell pieces of the leveled home to happy conservatives. I would pay for a piece of wood or tile or something and have my DIL make it into a work of conservative art.

Any and all pork dishes (pork chops, ribs, etc) must be named in honor of Justice Thomas. Remember when he was put on the Supremes, all the folks from the CBC urged his wife to feed him all things greasy in order to shorten his life? How ignorant!

"Excuse me sir, but I've been asked to escort all defeatists out of this room. Now if you will come with me please."

There's a big difference between a "deafists" and a "realist." Unfortunately many on this forum do not recognize the difference. As a former Selectman, Town Moderator, School Board Member and State Rep in a small community located near Weare , New Hampshire I understand New Hampshire politics and New Hampshire citizens. I personally know 4 of the 5 selectmen of Weare. Can you say the same? These people "protect" their townspeople whether it be a question of local taxes or the issue of eminent domain. These people firmly believe in the preservation of their community. They don't take kindly to "outsiders" trying to change local traditions.

Being vindictive in politics gets you exactly nothing and in this case it makes makes "conservatives" look like fools. If you wish to look the fool simply jump on the bandwagon.

Look, I’m fairly sure that this project isn’t going anywhere, but … thanks to the Supremes, it could. And that’s the point of pursuing it. Souter’s house is probably in no danger, but thanks to the Supremes, other people’s homes are.

The issue is this: are the rich and the powerful to be sheltered by “realists” from the folly of their own design? With enough resources, the need for more tax revenue in Ware can be found. There must be blight somewhere in Ware. Recalcitrant selectmen who are so corrupt as to not remove the blight in Ware can be replaced. See how the issue can be framed? It’s the good old boys protecting one of their own against the reformers seeking a better future for Ware. I can see the slogans now. Ah, it could be a grand fight. But it does take some imagination, some courage, the resources and the dogged determination to carry it through all of the “realists” who know the status quo.

Hillsborough, Wal-Mart in traffic jam

HILLSBOROUGH — Significant differences continue to exist between town regulators and Wal-Mart representatives over how best to handle the retailer's impact on local traffic and what it should pay.
 


"Being vindictive in politics gets you exactly nothing and in this case it makes makes "conservatives" look like fools. If you wish to look the fool simply jump on the bandwagon."

As a conservative liberatarian, I believe there is nothing foolish in seeking justice, poetic or otherwise, for wrongs committed by politicians or for unconstitutional decisions made by lifetime-tenured judges. There is nothing like a grass roots show of reactive force...in expressed contempt or in rebellion. Often times vindictiveness teaches a good lesson...that's reality. (Purpleland lives in NH too.)

***Since we are both residents in NH, I hope you'll have the opportunity to tell me to my face about my "attitude" and how it affects the world. As a town politician you probably have good cause to be offensively defensive.

For what it's worth, I'm 100% in favor of the whole plan. Unfortunately, that's about as much support as my empty wallet allows.

The logical fact remains that Souter should live by the injustice that he helped to promote. And if he's a man (which I have my doubts) he should either acknowledge his error in judgment and correct it or pack his bags and move to the socialist country of his choosing.

Sounds like the propaganda used to try to convince gun-owners to not offend anyone and to keep quiet while gun-control laws and court cases usurped the Second Amendment.
