Hotel Lost Liberty

A libertarian group has drafted a proposal for land repurposing in Weare, New Hampshire — seeking to start the application process to build a hotel on 34 Cilley Hill Road. This is the present location of Supreme Court Justice David H. Souter’s home. From the press release:

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.”

Thus the first shot of the revolution has been fired. Over 200 years ago, our forefathers tarred and feathered officials and burned down the homes of those who represented the tyranny of the British Crown and their theft of land from colonists. Now our fighting technique has evolved into using the government’s own tyrannnical laws against them in such an extremely ironic manner that people will quickly realize how overbearing our government has finally become.

Perhaps Justice Souter should be given a lifetime supply of humble pie at the “Just Desserts Café” in exchange for his home. (thanks Joe and Gary)

  1. I just hope this particular press release gets a lot of press. Nothing so greatly exemplifies the problems in our current form of government more succinctly. I just love Mr. Clements for doing this!

  2. No bad in New Hampshire, we bar that sort of emiment domain practice already.

    Rest assured, that won’t stop the fight… stay tuned.

  3. anyone think an amusement park on the site of the Bush ranch would generate more local revenue and benefit the the public?

  4. This was discussed last night on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (the show after David Letterman). He did a whole bit about how bad it was and mentioned this idea (he didn’t use the name “Hotel Lost Liberty,” though). Anyway, it’s clearly a populist issue, as his criticism of the ruling got a lot of applause.

  5. It is most definitely a populist issue, losing your home is a very personal fear and I have heard reps and dems alike speak out against the decision. LP should be able to get some political clout out of this. Stevens used language that seems to invite legislative action, but unfortunately this may only lead to self serving, special interests written, poorly drafted laws that will require greater judicial review.

  6. “Media, LLC, points out that the City of Weare will certainly gain greater tax revenue and economic benefits…” lies, lies, lies… Oh my God !
