    I was discussing this possibility just the other day: that I would hope one of them would get nailed by the own filth they passed onto the rest of us. Only, I wish one of them lost their primary residence, not just undeveloped land they owned. Maybe that'll teach them a lesson

    Then again...nah. Not likely.

    I hope it happens!
    The SCOTUS has made an absolute mockery of individual property rights with this decision?

    Hopefully, the developer's plans go through. Until then I hold my, "He** yeah!"s.

    It'd be great if it happened but it won't. Does anybody actually think any politician would vote in favor of this?

    The only hope is that the selectmen in his home town see this for what it is and go along to teach souter a lesson.

    It probably wont happen though.

    I am in a quandry...

    ... I have called it un-American to make this sort of a land grab. But, the victim. Oh my. I also call the planned and plotted taking of life murder. But could I call it murder or courthouse cleansing in the cases of the DISHONORABLE five?

    But I would fight against the ultimate solution for these bastids. I want them to live forever so they can view the damage they have unleashed as it unfolds around them and people realize who did it to them and pound forever on their vile heads.

    Even if this plan is carried out (which I highly doubt), Souter will probably get 1.3 X more than the value of his property.

    Or, even if he gets only the fair market value, it will probably be for a huge profit after he pays off his loan.

    Then everyone who agrees with the court's decision will point to this case and say, "what, it happened to Souter and he didn't have a problem with it."

    Well well, it seems that New Hampshire already has a law on the books prohibiting the taking of land for private use. Did the learned Justice Souter already know this when he voted?

    I just hope the "just compensation" is less than the remaining value of his mortgage. Or at least less than fair market value. :neener:

    There shouldn't be a mortgage if it's already been in his family for a long time. :D

    As far as the comment on the "land-grab"...well, we did that to the people who were already living on these lands before the white man arrived. :eek:

    I've always wondered if some Gov't entity is going to come crashing through my door late at night for being in possession of stolen property (my land and house). :eek:

    Leave it to the Gov't to force me to pay taxes on something they stole. :eek:

    Everyone have a nice 4th! Ah, yes, the time to celebrate the fact that our founding fathers were traitors to their country because they didn't want to pay a tea tax...try that today and see where it'll get you. Celebrate responsibly!

    You honestly think that's all there was to it?

    The letter they sent:

    I hope it's more than just a home to him. I hope it's a piece of land that has been in the family for generations. I hope he was raised there, and saw any children he has take their first steps there. I hope it really means something to him. Then, maybe, he can feel the consequenses of his traitorous actions.

    could you call it murder or courthouse cleansing? and did Souter know ??/

    Just food for thought on some points brought up above:
    The accepted definition of murder is the willful taking of a life where that life does not merit its destruction, i.e. taking innocent life.
    I the accepted sense, it also includes the willful taking of life where the killer does not know with reasonable certainty that the victim merits death.
    that is, the Beltway Snipers may have killed a really bad bad badguy -but since they had no way to know that, it is still murder.

    In days past, people killed over land and property (horses, etc) esp when those items were more closely tied to survival- steal an early 19th century rural farmers herd, and he may well have starved to death, making it a life or death affair and justifying deadly force against the thieving party.

    Question is, does the same apply to the folks in new London? are they truly in danger of death or grave bodily harm? is it a case by case decision?
    Now, history is clear what tends to happen to corrupt politicians. But the question put today is wether is it "murder" or "Courthouse cleaning", regarding the 'dishonorable five'. Is the city council who approves the ED-ing of your house just as guilty? The county assessor, same question? the police officer who comes to make sure you come along quietly to your new apartment?
    This, everyone will have to decide for themselves- a difficult decision with grave importance!

    (pause)

    Also asked was if Souter knew ahead of time that his place was safe in NH. DOESN'T MATTER!!!! if it is, you appeal and cite the Kelo ruling, asking to override state authority; then go after some other property of his in another state. This will force the matter to a head again, and invite reform.
    if not, you draft up a plan that meets the requirements to show the proposed growth, etc and convince the city to let you do it! THEN, don't build anything. This also forces the issue to the front, and highlights the areas already blighted with this issue so folks can see that nothing came of it but broken lives- no hotel, no marina, nada; just evicted americans who in good faith bought a home.

    Obviously, it would be better if Souter's house was vulnerable, but all is not lost if its not.
    Any pro bono lawyers out there wanna take this on?

    Ever since this ruling I have been hearing the strangest things--liberal anti-gun Democrats asking me how they can go about obtaining firearms, and proclaiming that they will fight to the death if Walmart or anyone else tries to take their homes, stuff like that. I think this ruling brings us one step closer to the $h!thammer coming down.
