Why pedophilia is a witch hunt and the laws are ridiculous,
The problem here is that true pedophilia is so rampant and also so abhorrent to good people that it provokes a very emotional response. I remember an article on HuffPost a few months back where a Texas father beat a Mexican rapist to death with his hands after he caught the man raping his very young daughter. Even in that liberal den of inanity, the comments were almost universally supportive of the father.
So, laws are written that are excessive and nobody repeals them because its political suicide. And the Feds are given power to find Internet pedo porn and lock anyone with it up for years, with very slim proof of guilt required. It's a witch hunt as Dan said, but it's happening because of the terrible anger that parents and non sociopathic people feel toward those who would abuse children. Consider this: 1 in 5 women have been abused sexually in the US. Most by a family member.
My contention is that we need to find a good way of identifying the sociopaths among us, and register them. But that's so far impossible. 1:25 people are sociopaths and they hide so well among us that most are never revealed.

We Live In A Lottery Society,
It's easy to get ahead. You just need to lack a conscience! Sociopaths with some intelligence and drive do very well here. The key is to lack any compassion or empathy for anyone. Then all things are possible. If anything should make a normal person depressed its that. All things considered tho, I'll keep my conscience.

Signs of new housing bubble in several areas,
I'm not so sure that investor activity will suddenly cease at a magical price point. Right now hedge funds and REITs are driving investor activity. As these rise in popularity and notoriety, more money will flow to them from everything from rich individuals looking for a return to regular joes plowing their 401k into something "exciting." The money invested must be spent, so the funds will continue to acquire property even as the price raises make this less attractive from the point of return from rentals. The decline won't be felt immediately as rents rise and the price gains of homes held in funds portfolios add to their assets and show strength. Which will attract further investment.
Where does it stop? I have no idea. But at some point the distressed shadow inventory will be released to keep the trend chugging along. This may slow price gains, but won't "pop" the bubble, as demand from REITs will have increased commensurately.
