There is a stench wafting through Worcester, a smelly brew of legalism, self-pity and irresponsibility. It corrodes self-reliance, makes a mockery of law, and tramples upon contracts. Unchecked, it may infiltrate our legal system, infect the brains of left-leaning judges, and spawn rulings injurious to common sense.
This stench is the Worcester Anti-Foreclosure Team (WAFT).
WAFT members appear to mean well. They want homeowners to know their rights. They want to prevent illegal evictions. They want government to assist those who are about to lose their homes.
But WAFT members — and the leftists, liberals and progressives who think as they do — don’t stop there. When confronted with the economic and legal realities that not all foreclosures can or should be stopped, they look for loopholes and technicalities. They blame banks, mortgage companies and lawmakers. They even stage blockades.
