Constitution Park?

Justice Breyer's home has now been targeted by activists seeking to make a point about the Supreme Court's wrongheaded Kelo eminent domain decision, which allows the government to take private property by force not just for "public use," but to transfer to any other private owner who wants the land and can make a case they will be a "better" owner, i.e., pay more property taxes.

Justice Souter's home is also the target of libertarians who would like to erect a "Lost Liberty Hotel" on his land.

A brilliant way to illustrate just how wrong the Kelo decision was. If it's not fair to take Justice Souter or Justice Breyer's property, it's not fair to take any citizen's property.

I just love this! Let's get them all--especially Ginsburg. I hope they at least keep this up long enough to get a lot more attention. Face it, the average American doesn't even know there was a bone-headed decision.
