Heartwrenching Woe of Evicted Occupier: “You see all those garbage trucks? That’s where I live now”

Aww, so sad.

“That was my home,” said Shane Stoops, 23, an occupier from Seattle who said he had been at Zuccotti since the dawn of the protest Sept. 17.

“You see all those garbage trucks? That’s where I live now. They took my life … all my clothes, my four-man tent and mattress, all of my books and three years of drawings.”

Heartbreaking, isn’t it?

They took his life.

Time to go back to Seattle, Shane. Maybe you can hitch a ride on one of the garbage trucks.
Meanwhile, as to the ACLU activist judge, do note:
UPDATE: The Daily News reports that attorneys affiliated with the Occupiers sought out Billings. But she will not be the judge who rules on the merits of the case; a hearing at 12:30 this afternoon will be in front of Justice Michael Stallman, according to David Bookstaver, a spokesman for the courts. Stallman has a resume that, for the most part, lacks Billings’ activist credentials. But, for what it’s worth, Stallman was a legislative assistant to the late Ted Weiss in the early 1970s. Weiss, a devout liberal, was a city councilman at the time, and he later went on to serve in Congress, until his death in 1992.

A hearing is currently under way.

#OWS hearing at 12:30 will be before Justice Michael Stallman, says court spokesman

    If the man had a brain he would return to his mommy’s basement and write all about his exciting adventures in a city far from home — and entitle it: “How I joined the 1% with two months of mindless stupidity.” I’m sure the 99% would love to read all about it. Cough.

    protester in nyc: from seattle…protester in portland: from seattle…protester in oakland: from seattle…protester in san fran: from seattle… looks like seattle finally figured out how to empty the town of their hippies by farming them out as freelance protesters.

    We can just throw out any semblance of “law & order” if ANY damn judge rules in favor of these goddamn parasites of society…

    The real reason they don’t want to abandon Afghanistan is, because of the Exxon Mobile’s pipeline pumping oil from Afghanistan. George Bush Jr. brags he went to Iraq for the oil, to show off to his affluent friends. So instead of half the national deficit, we have it double, they want to build permanent bases in Iraq and Afghanistan, so big oil, and the Republican’s can get rich. So why do they want to make Afghanistan a permanent duty station so they can protect the interest’s of big oil and the pipeline, before they started drilling and pumping oil out of Afghanistan, the country was considered the largest untapped oil resource in the world. They don’t talk much about the pipeline now because the Billionaire’s and corporations have silence everyone. I don’t vote and support neither party. George Bush Jr and the Republican party wanted to control the oil infrastructure of Iraq, and Afghanistan to enrich themselves, Billions traded for the corporations, while America accumulated Trillions in national debt, not such a good trade off, but it was for 1% of the population. The people of Afghanistan live simple lives as farmers and ranchers, living off of mountain goats, and sheep’s, and simple crops, too stupid to realize what they have an abundant source of natural resources that they do not benefit from, while Hamid Karzai hordes over 100 Billion in secret accounts for himself. The people of Afghanistan use horses and donkeys, and pick up trucks, as their main weapons, while military contractor’s keep building new weapon system’s for themselves and get richer, America goes down hill in debt. China owns 11% of the national debt, and Japan owns 10% and they are over 200% over GDP in national debt. So who owns most of the national debt Private Security Firms profiting off the national debt of the U.S.

    Twenty-three years old and sleeping in parks and protesting for what? Free food and cash. When I was that age I was holding down two jobs, a full time girlfriend and supporting myself. I’d give anything to be twenty-three years old again.

    And yet these fucking wastes of oxygen are pissing it all away. They deserve all the bad shit that will surely happen to them in life. Even in a Communist society (that many of these bums seem to desire) one has to work – or end up in a Gulag. They’re nothing but the personification of “useful idiots” that Lenin spoke of. Piss on em.
