Just Desserts

Every once in a while the universe throws you a bone. If one New Hampshire developer has his way, Pro-Property Rights groups will be chewing a savory bone of recompense.

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.

Clements, CEO of Freestar Media, LLC, points out that the City of Weare will certainly gain greater tax revenue and economic benefits with a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road than allowing Mr. Souter to own the land.

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."

Clements indicated that the hotel must be built on this particular piece of land because it is a unique site being the home of someone largely responsible for destroying property rights for all Americans.

"This is not a prank" said Clements, "The Towne of Weare has five people on the Board of Selectmen. If three of them vote to use the power of eminent domain to take this land from Mr. Souter we can begin our hotel development."

Clements' plan is to raise investment capital from wealthy pro-liberty investors and draw up architectural plans. These plans would then be used to raise investment capital for the project. Clements hopes that regular customers of the hotel might include supporters of the Institute For Justice and participants in the Free State Project among others."

This should by no means stop with Souter; nor should we be satisfied until he and that gang of tyrants is forced to relocate to an old folks home.

After the hotels completion Supreme Court Justice David H. Souter should be invited to the Just Desserts Café to enjoy a large slice of humble pie.

Heavy Element

This is just to funny not to reprint. From the Letters to the Editor at the Tallahassee Democrat,

A major research institution has announced discovery of the heaviest chemical element yet known to science. The new element has been named "governmentium."

Governmentium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called "morons," which are
surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles known as "peons."

Since governmentium has no protons or electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected easily, as it impedes every reaction with which it comes in contact. A minute amount of governmentium causes one reaction to take more than four days to complete when it would normally take less than a second.

Governmentium has a half-life of four years. It does not decay but instead goes through a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization causes some morons to become neutrons, forming "isodopes."

This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to speculate that governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity or concentration. This hypothetical quantity is called a "critical morass."

You will know it when you see it.

Curve Ball!

Holy smokes! Where am I going to find the time to blog on a regular schedule? Life seems to throw us little curve balls all the time.

My most recent curve ball was a whooper. On April 15th, my son and I headed out to the family farm to camp out for the night. He’s six and thinks there’s nothin’ better than being outside with a camp fire.

We arrived around 6:00 P.M. and I setup camp quickly. I used some new fangled fire starter thingies. I’ve never had a fire start so easily or so fast. Anyway it was great night. There was a cool breeze, but not enough to blow the smoke in your face and the sky was clear. We ate hot dogs, marshmallows and smores.

Dallas went to sleep about 10:00 o’clock and I stayed up and enjoyed a sip of 1792 and a pipe of tabak. It was a great evening. Unfortunately it didn’t end up that way.

Around 2:30, in the A.M., Dallas woke up and was in the midst of an asthma attack. I quickly put him in the truck and rushed back to the house. The whole way there I’m tellin’ him to calm down and take slow deep breaths. Well by the time we got home he was doin’ much better and we decided it was best to just stay home and go out the next morning to pack up the camp site.

Saturday was a beautiful day and Dallas was doing well but he was a little sluggish. I figured it was because of stayin’ up late by the camp fire and all the excitement from the asthma attack. I was wrong.

Saturday evening and early Sunday morning we had to administer a couple of treatments via his nebulizer. Fortunately for us the nebulizer broke early Sunday morning and I had to take him to the ER. I say fortunately because they took a chest x-ray and it turned out he had pneumonia in both lungs.

He was in the hospital from Sunday morning until Friday around noon. It was a very long week, but we all got through it.

I just want to take this opportunity to thank God for keepin’ Dallas safe and for makin’ arrangements for the nebulizer to break down. He truly works in mysterious ways!

Police arrest school-yard brawlers at Rickards High

Thirteen students accused of taking part in a school-yard brawl were arrested Monday at Rickards High School, said Sgt. Bruce Gaines of the Leon County Sheriff's Office. They were charged with disorderly conduct and disrupting a school function, he said. Investigators weren't sure what caused the fight, which began after 9:45 a.m. No one was injured, Gaines said. Eight of the arrested students are age 18 or over and were taken to Leon County Jail, Gaines said. The minors were taken to the Juvenile Assessment Center. The students will be suspended from school for at least 10 days, Gaines said. If it is the second or third suspension for any of the students, they could face expulsion.

It’s truly a shame that all those home-schoolers out there lose out on this kind of ‘socialization’ opportunity. I mean when home-schoolers get together, it's only about fun activities or for educational purposes.

If you put your children in a Government Indoctrination Center (GIC), you deserve all the pain and suffering they’re sure to receive.

But I understand some of you don’t have a choice. Sending your child to a good private school or home-schooling would affect your income. And it’s not like you should have to sacrifice for your children or anything!?!

Dirt Bag!

Drudge reports that the fight for the corpse is already on.
Okay, so the judiciary is allowing Michael Schiavo to murder his wife. He’s getting what ‘he’ wants. The least he could do is to allow her parents to bury her. The only reasonable excuse for not allowing this would be if he truly loved her. And we all know how much he loves his wife. He loves his wife sooo much that he’s lived in an adulteress relationship for over a decade. He loves his wife sooo much that he’s sired bastards. He loves his wife sooo much that he’s fought tooth and nail to murder her at the emotional expense of the people she loved.
Unfortunately we all know the outcome of this as well. Michael Schiavo will keep up the pretence that he loves Terri to the end. And of course, the courts will allow him to poor salt into the wound of the people she loved.

Why Democracies Slave?

A slave doesn’t have a legal right to keep the fruits of his labor. He may in fact keep some, but only if the slave-owner allows it.

In a similar way, I don't have a legal right, without the permission of modern-day slave-owners, to keep the fruits of my labor.

In modern America the slave-owner is the voting public. Those elected by the slave-owner decide how much of my income I can legally keep.

I am Democracies Slave.
