Best. Upyours. Ever.

In the wake of the Supreme Court's decision to allow city governments to take land from private citizens and give it to other private citizens if the government benefits, one guy decided to stick it to the man:

"On Monday June 27, Logan Darrow Clements, faxed a request to Chip Meany the code enforcement officer of the Towne of 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] Souter's home." More

Giggity, giggity, gig-gi-ty.

Here's the kicker: "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."

Now, I'm not the biggest fan of Libertarian ideology -- sometimes I agree, sometimes I don't -- but I'm totally on board with this clever endeavor. I, and I'm sure many others, suggested this exact idea the second those fockers handed down the decision. Talk about your economic chickens coming home to roost.

Good luck, Mr. Clements. And good luck to Clarence Clemons as well.

Debateable. But we're on the same team here...although I can see this ending with a steel chair double-cross.
