David Souter: BEWARE!

Well, maybe not. New Hampshire has just passed a bill that basically says that there are limits on the reaches of eminent domain. I wish that they would have considered this AFTER they seized the future location of the “The Lost Liberty Hotel” that is currently being occupied by Justice Souter.

Sigh… I still totally agree that Kelo (2005) is bad law and should be eliminated wherever and however the elected branches of government choose to do it. I used to enjoy a fundamental right to property.

I think you mean a constitutional right to property.

I was referring to Locke’s idea that life, liberty, and property are natural rights that the government should protect.

lol. right you are. I thought you were starting to sound like a judge. “Fundamental” is a word judges use not in a natural law sense but in a “the constitution doesn’t contain this right but the aclu wishes it does so I’m going to make it up” sense.
