Eminent Domain and Just Desserts
Would You Invest in a chain of Lost Liberty Hotels?

(Note:Reprinted with permission from the Texas Homeowner Association News)

On Monday, June 30, 2005, Private developer, Logan Darrow Clements, faxed a request to Chip Meany, the code enforcement officer of the town of Weare, N.H., seeking to start the application process to build a hotel (to be named The Lost Liberty Hotel) on 34 Cilley Hill Road, the present location of Supreme Court Justice David Souter's home. Souter voted in favor of the controversial Eminent Domain decision allowing a city to take residents' homes for private development – or to be seized to make room for a new hotel.

According to the LA Times, Clements said in a press statement that his proposal “is not a prank” and that he planned to raise investment capital from "liberty advocates" around the country to build a "Lost Liberty Hotel," with a dining room called "Just Desserts Cafe." . . .

"I am taking it seriously," Meany said of Clements' letter. He said it had generated e-mail from across the country supporting the hotel initiative. "I have to afford him all the due process under the law."

Meanwhile, Clement’s fax and the resulting national media coverage have completely overwhelmed Clement’s FreeStar media, LLC., which received over 380,000 unique visitors on Tuesday following his fax.

Clements appears to be a social humorist. A new video, produced by Freestar Media, LLC, shows a monkey throwing darts at investments and getting a better rate of return than humans throwing darts at a board representing the rates of return of Social Security.

Although Clements claims his fax was not a joke, his web site says that he isn’t taking any more e-mails or calls unless you want to take out an ad. “We have received thousands of e-mails and hundreds of phone calls of people offering to invest in this project. We are overwhelmed. We urgently need cash to move to larger offices, hire staff and hire attorneys so we can legally accept these funds.”

The idea, however, has caught the imagination of thousands of Americans who are astounded by the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to allow Eminent Domain seizures for private development and not just for "public use."

We hope that Clements won’t abandon his novel idea. Imagine numerous LLC’s or CDC’s being created with the objective of developing Lost Liberty Hotels all over America – built on the confiscated land of corrupt officials and unjust justices!!! If nothing else, such an effort would force cities to afford “due process” to such requests and it would put every elected representative on notice that their homes are up for grabs too!
