Stay Focused wrote something that is so far off topic that it's ridiculous. The topic is asset forfeiture, not the housing bubble and what is wrong with his spell checker. I deplore BARNEY Frank's activities but deliberately misspelling it to cast a so called aspersion on him with a stereotypical list in the spelling is an insult to anyone who is homosexual. How is that any different from calling a black person a ni**er or a white person a honky, or a (insert name of ethic group here) a (insert insulting word here). Stupid is what it is no matter which group is being stereotyped. It's wrong, he should be flagged and his posts banned.

Make that a stereotypical "lisp" not list. Not the spell checker's fault this time. Mine.
The government has the power to seize your assets for a crime you did not commit. That's essentially the argument being made in a Boston federal court this week as the U.S. Department of Justice and Tewksbury (Mass.) Police Department work to take Motel Caswell away from its owner, Russ Caswell.

The libertarian-leaning legal team Institute for Justice took on Caswell's case pro bono, attorney Scott Bullock told me, because this case "is really taking civil forfeiture where it has not gone in the past."

The government wants to take Caswell's motel, not because Caswell is guilty of dealing drugs or other crimes...
