Sell the Ranch

Sell the Ranch

Clicking a link on Boing Boing, I found, a site which features an open letter to George W. Bush encouraging him to sell his famous Crawford, Tx., ranch to help the displaced residents of New Orleans. Here’s the basic idea:

That’s right, sell your ranch in Texas, and donate the money to the victims of this horrible tragedy. I realize you love your ranch; you’ve spent almost a year of your presidency there, doing important things like clearing brush, eating pretzels, and taking naps. But that’s exactly why you need to sell it. So many people have lost their homes; the least you can do is give up ownership of one of your many residences for their benefit to show that you have some trace of compassion. Think of it as a symbolic gesture that you’re finally ready to stop running away from the responsibilities of the Oval office, and you’re ready to meet head-on the full duties of the highest office in the land.

My favorite part, though, is the suggestion posted on the news page that the recent Supreme Court decision on eminent domain be used to file paperwork and seize Bush’s ranch for use as housing for evacuees. I wonder how Chief Justice Roberts would rule on that one?

    I want to know what the assessed value of his ranch is, and how many people it could feed for how long. Or how many houses it could rebuild.
