# - Supreme Shock - shock and awe hits home with the recent Supreme Court decisions. Hahahaha.

# Logan Darrow Clements Freestar Media - The Lost Liberty Hotel - a proposal to build a hotel on property in Weare, New Hampshire currently occupied by a house belonging to Supreme Court Justice David H. Souter. If three of the five people on the town's Board of Selectman can be convinced to take Mr. Souter's property following the emminant domain ruling that he just voted on, and Mr. Clements can get funding, which shouldn't be a problem, we could have some real justice.

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.
Fortinately for New Hampshire residents, but unfortunately for this idea, New Hampshire does not allow eminent domain to be abused in the manner approved by the Supreme Court. The Castle Coalition's Public Power, Private Gain (PDF) says:
News reports revealed no reported condemnations for private parties in New Hampshire between 1998 and 2002. This admirable restraint probably results in part from a decision of the New Hampshire Supreme Court in 1980 holding that New Hampshire.s constitution did not allow condemnations for "economic development," i.e., local governments could not take land for private businesses on the premise that the business would create jobs and pay taxes. One legislative attempt to increase compensation for condemned businesses failed in 2002, but New Hampshire remains one of the best states to own a home or business without fear of it being taken for another private party.

# Jeff Quinn at Gunblast - Doublestar Star-15 7.62 x 39 Semi-auto Rifle - an AR-15 style rifle in the AK-47 caliber. It's a shooter, too. 1/4" groups at 50 yards and 1" groups at 100. According to the Star-15 web site, their rifles start at $775, but I didn't see the 7.62x39 version there. [gunblast]

As a short, light and handy carbine to keep around the ranch or homestead, the Star-15 7.62 x 39 excels. It offers plenty of power and accuracy for ninety percent of what needs to be done with a rifle, from varmint control to home protection, or filling the freezer with meat.
