As you read this, remember: a Corn Flake doesn't have to be a Libertarian Party member. They only have to make those of us who support greater liberty look like refugees from the fool farm.
New London, CT wanted to take Susanne Kelo's home and give it to a corporate developer. Kelo and some of her neighbors objected. They went all the way to the Supreme Court... and lost. The court's 5-4 ruling, led by the liberal bloc of judges, stated in effect that the government's right to higher tax revenues trumped Susanne Kelo's right to keep her home.
Now, Libertarians believe that eminent domain, if exercised at all, should only be used for obvious public good, only as a last resort, and never, ever, NEVER to enrich private individuals. Libertarians filed friend-of-the-court briefs in Kelo v. New London, protested the takings, and campaigned on the issue in elections. If we aren't closely tied to the eminent domain issue, it's not for lack of trying on our part.
So when Susanne Kelo casts a curse on those who took her home, it makes everyone who opposes eminent domain look bad.
"Hey, lookit there at dat dumb eminent domain protester person. Y'know, they're all inta that voodoo garbage, castin' spells an' all dat. Tetched in th' haid, y'ask me."
I know of at least one Wiccan who reads this blog. I don't know if she believes in casting curses, spells, or anything like that. I don't even know that Kelo is a Wiccan herself. What I do know, though, is that most people don't believe in magic... and believe that people who do believe in magic, curses, etc. are lunatics. (Exception: sports-related curses exist. Two million Chicagoans can't be wrong.) Casting a curse on your enemies destroys all political credibility you have... and puts you right up there with the shotgun-wielding hillbilly who spits a chaw of tobacco before saying that they ain't gonner be no inner-state across'n his corn patch.
For sending out over thirty curses by the power of will and the United States Postal Service: Susanne Kelo, this week's Corn Flake!
