    sounds an awful lot like viewpoint discrimination to me, as stated.  Why not aim it at all terrorists?  You can easily imagine a bill in the McCarthy era depriving Communists who participated in violent acts of bankruptcy protection.  Or later, civil rights protestors.  My point is not that Randall Terry and his crew are good people or should be shielded against the financial consequences of crimes they commit.  I just think a penalty like that shouldn't be aimed at particular movements.  It should apply to every similarly situated person who commits a crime, no matter what political opinions caused them to do so.
