Anyone Notice a Trend Here?

It looks as though Supreme Court Justice David Souter now has some company in the exclusive "Let's Piss Off New Hampshire Club".

PLAINFIELD, N.H. (AP) Libertarians upset about a U.S Supreme Court ruling on land-takings are taking aim at a second Supreme Court justice with property in the state.

Libertarians object to a recent decision that allowed a Connecticut city to take land by eminent domain and turn it over to a private developer. The New Hampshire Libertarian Party is asking the town to use the same technique to take U.S Supreme Court Justice Stephen G. Breyer's 167-acre Plainfield vacation home to turn it into a park.

Funny how these two Supreme Court justices, who have no problem trampling on the rights and freedoms of property owners, own property themselves in New Hampshire, one of the most freedom-friendly states in the country.

And while we're on the subject...

If, in fact, Massachusetts is such a fabulous, idyllic vacation destination, as the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism would have you believe, why on earth would Governor Romney also choose to own a vacation home across the border in New Hampshire?

Why, just think of all the property tax revenue he's denying the poor, starving schoolchildren of Massachsuetts.
