    He didn't kill the thread his brain short circuited from Liberal hypocrisy while trying to defend it.

    To the extent I killed it, I apologize. My question for Dan is very technical in that it relates to our civil liberties under the US Constitution. In another thread, when I tried to explain this, he really irked me by saying things like "the 4th amendment is irrelevant" when it was clear he had no legal training whatsoever. Its kinda like if I came here and told you guys how to code based on something I saw on tv or whatever but otherwise had very little understanding of what you do. As you can imagine, it can be annoying, and apparently im not good at "winning on the internets".

    In any event, he upped the ante by referencing a Supreme Court Case (NY v. Quarles) which is ironic for many reasons. I may explain why later, but for now I am curious to see how far down the rabbit hole he is willing to go.

    Different thread, but... I cited that case because it established what constitutes arrest, and I agree with the reasoning in that case that detaining a person against his will, especially by physically restraining him, is arrest even if he does not resist.

    Is that your understanding of the holding of that case? I take it you did not Shepardize it?

    Doesn't mean it's a good investment though and certainly not one that you can turn your back on and sell within an instant, so you better be liquid.

    Translation, as it has been for decades now, housing is incredibly illiquid and an unwise choice for those who cant afford it. No surprise there, but certainly not the concern of anyone who simply adopts the longtime bearish mantra of "a home is a place to live, not an investment" which is really more of the viewpoint of what I was concerned about.

    In nominal terms it's pretty unlikely as the Fed and the government keep debasing the currency.

    Thank you for having the stones to admit that. For all the bluster we still see from the bear camp from time to time, when push comes to shove, very few are willing to admit the bottom is in and they missed the boat. I appreciate your honesty.
